Abortion is one of the most controversial issues in the United States. I feel that the pro-life side of this argument needs to be addressed and further explained. There are some babies that die by chance , but they should never die because of someone's else choice. All of us alive today could have been an aborted baby and never been given the chance to live life. But luckily for us, our mothers chose life.

The definition of abortion according to the Merriam Webster Dictionary is the deliberate termination of human pregnancy. Abortion has been used for centuries to terminate unwanted pregnancies. Before 1973, abortion was illegal in the United States. In the court case Roe v. Wade, the U.S. Supreme Court decided to legalize abortion. The legalization of abortion cause a new set of problem, America was split into two groups, pro-life and pro-choice. The pro-life group believes that a fetus has human rights and abortion violates them. The pro-choice group believes that the decision of whether or not to abort should be left to the pregnant woman.

In the case of Roe v. Wade, Jane Roe challenged Texas law on banned abortions because she was pregnant and wanted to have an abortion. Henry Wade was the District Attorney for Texas. A panel of judges decided that the law violated Ms. Roe's rights, but did not change the law for all pregnant women. The Supreme Court came to a decision, that concluded; during the first trimester, a abortion was permitted without any interference with the sate. During the second trimester, a state could regulate them for safety but could not prohibit abortion. Norma McCorvey, which was Jane Roe has now had a change of heart. She went from being pro-choice to being pro-life.

...ave children. But I feel differently now, I honestly feel like it's the worst mistake I ever made in my life. Regardless of the situation we were in, it wasn't the baby's fault. It was the most traumatic experience ever and the aftermath of it was even worse. I had to deal with low self-esteem, grief, depression, guilt, shame, isolation, nightmares, sleep disorders, flashbacks of the abortions, physical pain and difficulties in subsequent pregnancies. I lost a child and it was my choice. I wish I was never given the option to have an abortion. Till this day I am still dealing with repercussions of the decision I made of killing my own baby.

In conclusion, I believe abortion should be restricted in the United States because it is ultimately murdering a beating heart. Help save the innocent cries of these babies by choosing to be pro-life and not pro-abortion.
