Abortion Meeting in the Middle

Societies view on abortion is based on two extremes Pro-Life and Pro- Choice but the idealistic of both view have drastic outcomes. To say that someone is "pro-life" is to say that the person believes that the government has an obligation to preserve all human life, regardless of intent, viability, or quality-of-life concerns. To be "pro-choice" is to believe that individuals have unlimited autonomy with respect to their own reproductive systems as long as they do not breach the autonomy of others. So the real question, does the government have the right to tell us ...view middle of the document...

” (McCormack 2012) Row V. Wade is a law that made it possible for women to have an abortion, but it still states the following, State criminal abortion laws violate the Due Process laws of the Fourteenth Amendment which protects against state action the right to privacy, including a woman's qualified right to terminate her pregnancy. The state is not permitted to override the law but has ligament interest to protect both the pregnant woman's health and the potentiality of human life.

Lastly out of 1,680,900 child runaways only 21% were reported missing by caregiver. (2011) Knowing that so many children suffer in the hands of own parents, and we lack the resources to help most of them makes abortion look ideal. If we sit and think of all the drug addicts suffering from their own demons who sell their bodies to supply their drug habits, many will become pregnant. Most will not take precautions to avoid pregnancy because as an addict it is the last thing they are worried about. This is a leading cause of addiction among new born babies. I know of two girls who chose to have an abortion because they could not kick their habit. I feel that made the right decision, so the child would not suffer. Also what happens to the child that was born to a...
