Abortion

 

Abortion has been one of this country's most controversial
topics. Before reaching any conclusions, several issues
must be taken into consideration. The rights of the woman
as well as of the "conceived" child must be evaluated. Too
many people do not see the consequences that result if an
abortion would be unavailable.
 
All human beings are given some inalienable right
guaranteed by the Constitution. One of those privileges is
the right to pursue happiness. An unwanted baby can disrupt
a woman's pursuit of happiness. Even if she decides to give
it up for adoption, she still has the burden of carrying
the fetus for nine months. Having the option to perform an
abortion can solve that obstacle. Taking away this right
would be an invasion of a woman's constitutional liberty.
 
The unwanted child also suffers. Most of the time the
mother of the unwanted child is very young and
inexperienced or too poor to take care of the child. The
child is usually malnourished, has no medical care, and
gets very little attention or love. If a child is given up
for adoption, the foster care system is inadequate. Only a
small percentage of the children are adopted by suitable
parents and the rest remain in the foster care system,
where there is little or no personal attention. In both
cases, the child has a poor education because of the lack
of attention and discipline. He/she grows up to be an
unproductive individual or a menace to society. Many get
involved in drugs and crimes. These individuals are also
very violent, lacking morality due small amount of care
they received themselves. In the long run, not only does
the child suffer but also society, the recipient of such
criminal behavior.
 
Abortion allows a woman to retain her constitutional
rights, prevents a child from being "unwanted", and it
establishes a safer and more peaceful society. On these
grounds, abortion should be kept legal, and even encouraged.
