Abortions Abortions should be illegal if you are going to go out and have unprotected sex, then you should be willing to take responsibility for your actions. The unborn child that is conceived has done no wrong and shouldn't have to suffer because of the mothers actions. Women shouldn't have a "right" to kill their preborn child. The word "choice" shouldn't be used in regard to abortions, since killing a preborn child offers the child no choice at all.
