The problem of abortion is a very disputable one in the world. People of different cultures and religions still have not solved it and have not elaborated a universal way of its solving. Everyone knows that abortion may result in agenesia, severe health problems, or even death of the woman. Some countries try to legalize abortion, and some of them go against it.
Let us consider how this matter is handled in different world countries. Firstly, Indonesian mass media do their best to make women reject abortion. They show women who have decided to make an abortion as crazy human beings who wanted to solve their problem in the easiest way. They say, “A mother should be crazy if she decided to make an abortion” (DESA).
Secondly, let us analyze India. People of this country still think that a newly born girl is a tragedy for a family. That is why most Indian people are against abortions in cases when a girl should be born (DESA).
Thirdly, the problem of abortion is very acute problem in Columbia. Church influence is very big in this country, and abortion is considered to be illegal in any case, irrespective of circumstances that caused it. Women and doctors can be imprisoned for 4 years. Some fanatics can even kill a woman who has made abortion (DESA). It is very hard and even dangerous to deal with the abortion legalization in this country.
Despite different thoughts and laws which exist and do not exist in different countries, everyone should realize abortion’s negative impact on both physical and mental health of the woman.
As for me, the problem of abortion is one of consequences of the lack of responsibility. Women and girls should be more responsible in relation to their life and life of their family members. This idea should be fully realized by everyone. The problem of abortion can be solved by uniting people around the idea of preventing abortion legalization irrespective of the nationality and country. The law should be the same for everyone. This will help to save lives and health both of women and their unborn children (DESA).
