Due to the lack of parental guidance and education at school, children are more prone to engaging in unprotected sex, which is one of the leading causes to abortion (Her Choice, 2009). If you are under 18, your state may require one or both of your parents to give permission for your abortion or be told of your decision prior to the abortion. However, in most states you can ask a judge to excuse you from these requirements (Planned Parenthood, 2012). According to the Guttmacher Institution, 40% of minors having an abortion report that neither of their parents knew about the
Some people may argue that if a baby is conceived by either rape or incest, or the mother will have major health problems that it makes all abortions ok. The truth is that these account for a very small percentage of all abortions. 1% of abortions are because of rape or incest and 4% is because of health problems to the
The child has no say in what is happening, and the worst part of the procedure is it has been proven that the fetus can feel everything that is happening to it during an abortion.

I believe that abortion is the wrong choice except in cases of incest, rape, and to save the life of the mother.” (Romney, 2005) Like Republican candidate for President Mitt Romney, Pro-lifers have many beliefs, these include: all life is sacred; if an abortion is immoral - then it ought to be illegal, the unborn fetus is human and deserves rights, life begins at conception, abortions are not safe, they do not believe that the government should fund abortions, and they believe that the scripture backs up their views.

Many religions view the relationship between the mother and fetus or baby differently. There is no definition for when the embryo actually becomes a living baby. Contemporary Catholics read abortion as murder no matter what stage of pregnancy. Protestants view that the mother and the fetus are not equally sacred. They believe that the mothers’ life is more valuable.
Abortion was legalized in 1973, and since then approximately one million and five hundred thousand babies have been aborted each year. Abortion in medical textbook is technically defined as the termination of a pregnancy in any way before the fetus has reached the stage of viability. Many of the women who had the abortion done were not told about the procedure or the risks involved, and not informed about the development of the baby that is inside of them. Nancy E. Meyers, a media relations director of the National Right to Life Committee, argues that abortion should be illegal.

Many women tried illegal abortions, but these were very risky because illegal abortions were performed in unsanitary conditions. People were questioning the government’s right to interfere with citizens’ privacy. Norma L. McCorvey, a woman who lived in Texas, had become pregnant for the third time in 1969. She attempted to apply for illegal abortion, but there were no available abortion centers in the state where she lived.

Some who believe in abortion use it as a way of birth control and the others who don’t believe in abortion find it as murdering an unborn child.

These practices were the ones that the women performed to self-induce their pregnancy and many women died because of it.
