Hence, it is wrong to say that one should obey just laws and disobey unjust laws. It is difficult to identify just and unjust laws. Many people have tried to define them.

Throught time women have never had the full right to do as they please. Pro-Choice is a movement that gives a woman control of her own body. Many women have serious or life-threatening medical issues in pregnancy. There can also be many personal reasons women choose to have an abortion. Women should always have the right to choose what to do with their own bodies.
Pro-Choice or Pro-Life Abortion is a very controversial subject that many avoid because it has so many opinions when it is the topic of conversation. According to the Encyclopedia Americana, abortion is the termination of a pregnancy by loss or destruction of a fertilized egg, embryo, or fetus before birth. Even though many people believe that the destruction of a human being is considered murder, all women should have the right to choose to plan their own fertility. Abortion has been legal in the United States since 1973 and there are valid reasons to terminate a pregnancy such as a result of being raped or molested and for the health of the mother. In 1969, a woman named Norma L. McCorvey became pregnant.
The Prolife view will fight for the government to preserve and protect every human life. With each view there is strong debate over the law and which one is right, and which is wrong.

Here we are in this so-called world of freedom but when we exercise that freedom, we become ridiculed for making a choice. I would rather end a pregnancy instead of bringing a child into a world that they are forced to struggle and go without ; to make a child suffer is a far worse act then dissolving the birth of an unborn/ undeveloped fetus. In Roe v. Wade, a landmark Supreme Court decision in 1973, stated that a woman and her doctor may freely decide to abort a pregnancy during the first trimester, state governments can restrict abortion access after the first trimester with laws intended to protect the woman's health, and abortion after fetal viability must be available if the woman's health or life are at risk. Abortion was allowed in the United States of America

President Obama has prioritized the program.
This essay will explain and analyze two essays by individuals who express entirely different opinions of civil disobedience. In his essay, “Civil Disobedience: Destroyer of Democracy”, Lewis H. Van Dusen strongly discourages the use of civil disobedience as a means for change. He feels that this act of disobedience directly contradicts our democratic system. The other individual being compared in this essay is Henry David Thoreau; who in his essay, “Civil Disobedience”, supports the act of peacefully challenging or protesting unjust laws. He impugns us to do what is morally right, and to not be afraid to take a stand against injustice.
The Last Abortion Clinic Americans are still struggling with this intense issue regarding abortion. In The Last Abortion Clinic, FRONTLINE explores the efforts by pro-life advocates to help pass state legislation restricting access to abortion. The video examines the successes of the pro-life movement and touches upon the age-old balance between state and federal authority over Americans' lives. Some major issues that fall within the federal protection vs. those granted to the states by the 10th Amendment, also called the reserved powers amendment because it aims to reserve powers to the states (page 60). The pro-life movement has dramatically changed the landscape of abortion politics.
Issue 2 Aborti “In the mid-to-late 1800's, all states passed laws making it illegal to perform or attempt to perform an abortion. These laws were supported by the medical community, which noted abortion's moral implications and danger to women. During this time period, notable activists in the women's suffrage movement, such as Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton, spoke out against abortion in their efforts to protect women and children.”(1.Focus on the Family Issue Analysts) From the start Abortion was said and proven to be unsafe and the important and well educated people of that time error fought against it. While abortion was prohibited and deemed as illegal the malicious acts continued to be performed. “The term, "back-alley abortion," became slang for illegal abortions.” ( 1.Focus on the Family Issue Analysts).
