Abortion - America Must Remain the Land of the Free-Choice
Without a woman's right to do what she chooses with her body, her
freedom and liberty are taken away. If for personal reasons, a women wants
an abortion, as is, currently, her constitutional right, she has the
freedom to do so. In some states, a woman's freedom to have an abortion
has been severely limited. Because of this, many women have had abortions
by people not medically licensed to perform them. Many of these unlicensed
and unqualified people have used unsterile instruments, thus causing
illness or death. A child needs to be loved and wanted. A baby whose
mother resents his birth, will not receive the proper care and nurturing he
deserves. Perhaps, he would be better off not to have been born. For
these reasons, I support the Pro-Choice movement.
We all know America as the "land of the free", as sung daily by
many in "The Star Spangled Banner". Knowing that many women's autonomy has
been taken away, how can we, Americans, who claim to be people of liberty,
say the words of "The Star Spangled Banner" in good conscience? Females
have been told what to do with and how to treat their bodies. If the right
to self-determination is taken away, what will be decided for us next?
What we can wear? What we can read and what we can say? Possibly even how
we can act? This is not the American way! In fact, it is unconstitutional.
We must be aware of this lack of freedom and see to it that women receive
Sadly, there are many people who can not afford to support a child.
There are people who hate themselves and are incapable of loving another.
As I see it, it is fortunate, that some women may realize that they are not
fit to and can not care for a youngster. However, an anti-abortion law may
not give them any other choice. A mother willing to give up her offspring,
is likely to resent her own child. This resentment might result in neglect.
I would like to propose a compromise. Let there be a law requiring
counseling for someone planning on having an abortion.

- ... The Whites tried various methods to persuade the Cherokee to part with their land, but they refused and were frequently abused. “… we have come to the conclusion that this nation cannot be reinstated in its present location, and that the question left to us and to every Cherokee, is, whether it is more desirable to remain here, with all the embarrassments with which we must be surrounded, or to seek a country where we may enjoy our own laws, and live under our own vine and fig-tree.” If the Cherokee had agreed to relocate further west, they would not have had to go through adversity....
