No matter what, I think that abortion will always be an issue that people feel strongly about whether they believe it’s wrong or right.
Recently, a woman from New York is being charged with first-degree self-abortion for allegedly terminating the child with an herbal drink.
According to the article, there are only a few states that have laws against the practice of self-abortion and New York is one of them.
So, this made me think about one very important question people may ask. Is it ever ok to abort a child and should it be legalized?
I don’t agree with anyone taking the life of a child or any human being, but whether or not people choose to face it, this is not an easy issue to decide on.
There are many different factors that play into a woman’s decision to abort a child.
Some people may be quick to say that it should be illegal, however, I think that they’ are forgetting one important thing. While some women make a conscious decision to have a child, there are unfortunately some who don’t. Their choice was stripped from them.
We can’t allow ourselves to forget about the women who were raped and impregnated by either a stranger or sometimes someone they know. It’s not fair to force them to live with a constant reminder of a life-altering experience.
No, I am not for abortion, but I do believe that there are circumstances where you can’t really blame the woman.
In this woman’s case, who knows what her situation was. That doesn’t make it right, but it calls for us to look into the issue a little deeper.
When it comes to this sensitive issue, we need to keep in mind the unique circumstances that women are faced with.
Before you say that abortion should be made illegal, I ask that you think about how every woman’s situation varies.
