Woman And Abortion


Woman and abortion has always been an issue concerning everyone else except the female who
is having the child. Most US citizens today believe that abortion is the wrong way to go,
the unborn fetus has no chance at life. It is against the Catholic religion to do this but
many people have to do this. Abortions are usually wanted by the teenagers in our society,
whether they had made a mistaken and forgot to wear a condom or just chose not to wear
one. This article is stating that our government is going to start testing the mothers who
are caring a child. They want to ensure that the rights of the unborn fetuses are upheld.
The rights of the baby should be upheld, and I believe that it will be but I also believe
that there are groups that will not agree with this. These groups will protest at this

measure necessary to make it possible for the unborn fetus has a healthy birth.

The unborn fetus should have rights, but how do we know when the unborn child is in
