Why abortion should be legal?

On October 29th, a U.S. District Court judge temporarily blocked an Alabama abortion law. Alabama’s abortion law was reported nationwide when the law was passed on May 15th. The law says it does not allow people to have an abortion, even a pregnancy caused by rape or incest. It caused a huge protestant movement and was reported nationwide. Some celebrities criticized the law as it continued to be reported across the world. While there was criticism, there are nine states already in the U.S. which banned abortion. The law has now been blocked by a federal judge while the American Civil Liberties Union said that people have a constitutional right to abortion. This topic “should abortion be legal” also connects with religion, ethical viewpoints, and politics.

Abortion should be legal and opened.

An abortion law was discussed for years but the important thing is the U.S. Supreme Court has declared abortion to be a “fundamental right” guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution. Based on the constitution, abortion should be legal and be provided to everyone who needs it. Everyone is protected by the constitution and provided the choice to have abortion. The U.S. Constitution is the one of the biggest reasons that abortion should be legal because it recognizes personal freedoms. Also, we have more reasons, such as the following three reasons below, for the abortion right to be given to all people. First, women should not be forced to have a child when the pregnancy is a result of a crime, for example rape or incest. If an abortion is illegal, women can have huge psychosomatic stress by being forced to have a child. Second, we sometimes need an abortion to protect women’s health. Pregnancy and the process of giving birth contains many risks to their body, in some cases women have risks to their lives. To avoid possible physical damage, we need a choice to have an abortion. Third, people should have the right to have abortion for social reason. For example, the mother is too young to raise a child. An abortion would help a mother’s lifestyle and a child’s future in this case because when the mother is too young it can cause child neglect. References/ ProCon.

Abortion shouldn’t be legal.

“Abortion is murder” is one of the biggest reasons against legal abortion. Killing a person is wrong and against the law. No matter what, killing human life should be illegal. Abortion is the killing of a human being and it is not only an ethic problem but also a religion issue. According to the bible, killing a person is not allowed. This is why Alabama, a very conservative and religious state, passed the anti-abortion law. An argument is also made that the constitution gives the unborn child the same rights as everyone else, which includes the right to live.
