Years ago when a women would get pregnant she would have a baby. Today accidental
pregnancies are solved by a method called abortion. With this method the newly formed
fetus is basically removed from the mother's body and destroyed. Although the whole
process of having an abortion seems not especially pleasant, they seem to be popular.

Many people argue that abortion is plain and simple murder. They reason that if a woman
feels responsible enough to have sex, she needs to be responsible enough to deal with the
consequences. No matter what the circumstances may be.

The fourteenth amendment states that no state shall deprive any person of life, liberty,
or property without a good reason and a fair trial. Pro-life supporters use the fact that
in the United States constitution it clearly states that no one can kill anyone else
without due process to fight against abortions. They reason that we must follow all of the
other amendments so why do we not fully follow the fourteenth? The unborn baby has a
constitutional right to life unless due process of the law is put into effect. But how can
due process be in effect when the baby can not even speak for itself? Basically pro-life
supporters argue that the baby can not be killed because it has the constitutional right
to life.

Non-abortions advocates also argue that abortions get used too regularly as a form of
birth control. They believe that abortions are put into the same category as the "pill"
and the Depo-Provera shot. They also believe that while abortions are legal and so
available, people do not see unprotected sex as serious as they should. Women may consent
to un-protected sex because if they become pregnant they figure they can always just go
get an abortion. Pro-life supporters believe that abortions are a simple way out of a very
complicated problem.

However, the illegalization of abortion may bring on many consequences. If someone falls
victim of rape and becomes pregnant it is not fair to make them keep the child. The mother
would of course love the child, but with that would come a form of hate. It is true that
one should take responsibility for their actions, but rape is no action of their own. Rape
is an act of violence and no women should have to have a baby out of it.

As a women I agree that I, and only I, should make the decision of rather to have an
abortion or to not have one. It is the women's right to choose. If her decision is to have
an abortion then that is her decision and it should get respect. The bottom line is that
it is always the women's right to choose.
