In the article, “The Reason for Abortion” I discovered that a lot of people get abortions for personal reasons, whether or not those reasons are valid. When having children, mothers experience physical, emotional, and economic difficulties. In such situations, it’s a matter of life or death, therefore they decide whether to proceed or not. Moms often have to make difficult financial decisions, which forces them to pick what they want. A few mothers have had abortions because they felt that they should be spending more time with their other children. I find it really naive and self-centered to decide to kill your newborn in order to “focus” on your other children. On the other hand, it makes far more sense to be ill, like someone who has cancer.
