Legal or not women have been using abortion to control their reproduction at every point in history and in every known society. Abortion was practiced in the U.S. until around the late 1800s when at that time most states had forbid it, only making exceptions if it was to save the life of a woman/mother.

However, when a study taken by Minnesota reveals that women who have had an abortion have 10 times the risk of committing suicide than women who have not had an abortion, it’s time to seriously think about whether or not abortion should be acknowledged as morally right. Considered by some to be a form of murder, anti-abortion laws should apply to all women in order to prevent any emotional mishaps of the abortion victim and to save the lives of the innocent human beings not yet born....   [tags: Argumentative Essay, Persuasive Essay]

- Abortion is a controversial issue that is not easily handled in the world today. While some people, usually conservatives (also known as Pro-Life advocates), view abortion as wrong, others tend to feel that abortion should be up to the woman in that situation; these people are usually liberalists (also known as Pro-Choice advocates). While Pro-Life and Pro-Choice are two different views on the same point, several issues separate these two sides: the goals of each agenda, the side effects of accomplishing these goals, and the moral standards supporting each side....   [tags: abortion, moral, goal]

Abortion: Pro-Choice is the Wrong Choice

- Ronald Regan (1983) said “Abortion is advocated only by persons who have themselves been born” (pg. N/A). He was saying that a person who had a chance to live is ending the life of another person, who wasn’t allowed an opportunity to say whether or not he/she wanted to live. So abortion should not be considered as the only way to get out of a pregnancy because the woman could get breast cancer after the abortion process is over, the person may experience psychological damage due to aborting the child, and the woman is ending a human life. The first reason abortions should not be allowed is because the woman could get breast cancer after having the abortion....   [tags: The Right to Life, Pro-Life Essays]

However there are many circumstances that arise that could make that a difficult and sometimes impossible decision. Instead of every woman that becomes pregnant having no say in whether they have their child, there should be an age limit set. The legal age of a woman having an abortion should be set at 18.
