Unwanted pregnancy has been becoming more common, so it was inevitable that the topic of pro-life or pro-choice has become more of an issue. Being pro-choice gives women the choice on whether or not to keep a baby, while pro-life takes that right away from women. I believe that women should have the choices to do what they please with their body because it is theirs and no one else’s. Abortion allows for families and women to make sure that they are ready to provide and care for a baby. Though people may say that abortion are cruel to a fetus, studies show that before 26 weeks the fetus is not functional and cannot feel pain during an abortion. Thus, the process does not hurt the fetus or have any lasting effects on the woman. Another reason for being pro-choice is because it allows women to make the choice for a baby that would otherwise be born with severe defects or illnesses to no longer have to suffer through a life of pain and suffering. In addition, if a woman was forced to have her baby, she most likely would give it up for adoption. Though there are families that might take the baby, it is not guaranteed. Babies that aren’t adopted would go into the foster care system, which is a whole different story. Don’t get me wrong there are some loving foster families, in fact I know some, but there are also foster families and group homes that aren’t loving, that are just in it for the money. To put a child through that along with the constant moving around and lack of stability would be cruel. Finally, it gives women that became pregnant because of rape the choice on whether or not they want to keep a baby of such a violent act. Abortion shouldn’t even be up for discussion because the answer is clear: pro-choice is the only choice.abortion pro-choice
