If an abortion was performed before animation for a less serious reason, many theologians considered it wrong but not homicide. Abortion has been performed for thousands of years, and in every society that has been studied. It was legal in the U.S. until the mid 19th century. In 1900, abortion was prohibited by law throughout the U.S. The only way a woman was able to have an abortion was if two or more physicians agreed that the procedure was necessary to save the life of the pregnant woman.
Those that are against the government’s interference and monitoring of the Internet believe that they are entitled to privacy and the freedom of self-expression. The Clinton Administration wanted to enable a way to trace potential threats to the United States Government by accessing confidential information, tapping into conversations through the Internet and phone calls. “While privacy faces threats from both private and government intrusions, the existing motley patchwork of privacy laws and practices fails to provide comprehensive protection.

In 1973, however, abortion was legalized as a result of the U.S. Supreme Court rule in Roe v. Wade. In this court case, the Supreme Court held that “the word ‘person,’ as used in the Fourteenth Amendment, does not include the unborn,” (McCuen 106). The ruling created a fundamental right for a woman to choose to have an abortion, no matter t...
Regulation of Devices That Code Messages is Not Necessary Legislation has been proposed to regulate devices that code messages. The Clinton administration believes a better way to provide for our public safety is by requiring technology that scrambles electronic data for privacy reasons to contain a feature that would allow immediate decoding of any message, known as a trapdoor feature. The capability to monitor encrypted, private communications, however, does not yield greater public safety since it would create feeling among the people of constant supervision. According to government officials, access to scrambled data is needed for national security and law-enforcement. On the contrary, the trapdoor feature can work against law-enforcement, supplying criminals with an additional entry point to access and view private communications.
This is called spontaneous abortion or "miscarriage." A woman can also choose to end a pregnancy. This is called induced abortion. There are three ways it can be done — with medicine, vacuum aspiration, or surgery”(Parenthood).

Nearly 4000 years ago, in one of the first civilizations, the ancient Babylonians followed the Code of Hammurabi. It is one of the oldest set of laws on record. In a book by Stephen M. Krason (1984) titled The Law and History of Abortion: the Supreme Court Refuted, he states, “The written evidence of abortion reflects the interests of class and caste. Fines are listed in the Code of Hammurabi, ca. 1760 BCE, for the crime of causing a miscarriage through assault, with the amount varying according to the social rank of the woman” (p. 104).
Although, there is one question no one can seem to answer. When does the human life begin? If an answer were to arise, would it really matter in the abortion debate? Even if it were proven, abortion would still be wrong and society would need to end the terminating of fetuses. The practice of abortion, which is the terminating of a pregnancy to avoid giving birth, has been in use for thousands of years, even dating back to the ancient times and when the early settlers had first arrived to the Americas.
Some states did include provisions allowing for abortion in limited circumstances; generally with the purpose of protecting the woman's life or pregnancies related to rape or incest (Kauthen). This nation-wide ban of abortion only lasted for a couple decades. Roe vs. Wade is one of the most pivotal Supreme Court cases with regards to the abortion movement. By the end of the hearing, the courts decided that abortion was a constitutionally protected right of women and their right to privacy (Garlikov). This decision laid the foundation for legal arguments and, even today, is still taken into consideration as a precedent of common law.
Anti-abortion laws in America have been apart of every state statue since 1900’s. At one point in American history abortion was prohibited in 30 states, and depending on circumstance (rape, incest, or the health of the mother) legal in 20 states. It was not until 1973 Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade, that previous laws were invalidated; a criterion was provided for legalized abortion. This legalization of abortion only sparked greater debate amongst Americans, arguing from both Pro-Life and Pro-Choice positions. At the core of these debates is the issue of when does human life being, at contraception or later during development of the embryo, and the morality of terminating life versus the rights of the mother.
