Abortion Should Be a Woman’s Choice In Linda Greenhouse’s “A Never-Ending Story,” she brings up the abortion debate. The author describes what prompted her thoughts of abortion.

Overall, the most common reason for having an abortion is that “over 95 percent… [are] women who simply do not want to have a baby” (Abortion is Murder).

Studies show that when a fetus is being aborted it does indeed feel pain. There is a video titled “The Silent Scream” that shows a suction abortion (one method of abortion) where the unborn child tries to dodge the suction instrument and its heart rate doubles. When the suction instrument does catch the fetus, the fetus's mouth opens as if trying to cry or scream the same way an infant would if it is in pain (The Silent Scream).

The woman may feel guilt, anger, anxiety, depression, and even suicidal thoughts may occur after the woman has an abortion.
