Jane Roe was pregnant at the time of the case and argued that a woman should be allowed to seek an abortion. Henry Wade enforced the Texas law prohibiting abortion, even though the Texas law was declared unconstitutional in an earlier federal district court case, Wade ignored the decision. The case was heard from 1971 until 1973, when the 7-2 decision, “recognized that the constitutional right to privacy extends to a woman’s right to make her own personal medical decisions, including the decision to have an abortion without interference from politicians” (Planned Parenthood n.d). Since the decision, many people have tried to challenge the decision without any success. The woman who started this whole proceeding, has since tried to get the decision overturned because she now believes that an abortion hurts women more then they
Abortion Abortion is a subject that rises controversy throughout the United States. Pro-life groups protest the practice in peaceful and others in violent acts. Pro-choice groups feel that it is the woman’s choice to decide if abortion is right for her, and religious groups feel that abortion is murder of the fetus and against God’s will. The word abortion by definition, the deliberate termination of a human fetus during pregnancy, most often performed during the first 28 weeks of pregnancy. Abortion is an extremely controversial issue because while some people are completely against it, others believe that a woman should have the right to make her own choice.
It is not fair that millions of babies have to die everyday so that the mother baby can live on without a problem, but there is also a half a chance that the mother can die alongside with the baby.

Which to pro-life supporters, this is considered to be murder. Many people of pro-life are religious and believe that abortion is murder which is breaking one of the Ten Commandments. Within the first few weeks of conception, the fetus starts developing organs and body parts. Only at 6 weeks the baby is developing eyes, eyelids, nose, mouth, and tongue are being formed. People who agree with pro-life, their main concern is thinking that abortion is murder.
As medical improvements were made, women still had to rely on back alley abortions which usually resulted in the harm of thousands of women, some even include death. The American Medical Association stated that, “abortions were wrong and unsafe”. Therefore, according to the National Abortion Federation, abortions were then made into a “physicians-only” practice because they could be performed legally in order to save the woman’s life. It was not until 1973 that abortions were made legal in the United States due to a Supreme Court decision in Roe vs. Wade by ruling that “Americans’ right to privacy included the right of a woman to decide whether to have children and the right of a woman and her doctor to make that decision without state interference”.

Abortion: A Woman’s Choice Abortion, defined as the intentional termination of a pregnancy, is one of the most highly debated liberties of all time. Approximately one to three million abortions are performed each year. Women receive abortions for reasons such as rape, teen pregnancy, and health concerns. Unfortunately, it is a liberty that some still wish to eradicate due to religious beliefs and misconceptions. Abortion should remain a legal option for women because illegal abortions result in far more fatalities, religion does not serve as grounds for a law, and most importantly, there is no conclusive evidence that a fetus is equal to a human being.
The moral question has always been whether or not it should be a woman’s decision to get an abortion. The other side of that question is whether the government should have control over a woman’s body and forbid her to get an abortion. Pro-Choice, though it does take the side of legalizing abortion, it does not mean Pro-abortion. Pro-choice is the right in choosing whether to reproduce, adopt, or abort. I believe a woman should have the right to choose whether to keep the baby if she knows that she is willing to take up such a huge responsibility.
