I do believe that a woman has the right to choose whether she wants to have a baby or not. I had an abortion and although theres no serious physical or emotional effects from mine I do think abou what could have been if I ha chosen to keep the baby. I dont believe abortion should be illegal. If it was made illegal the world would def be overpopulated and we'd have a def epidemic of moms/dads killing their newborns(not like its not bad enough already). Situations happen in life that sometimes cannot be controlled for example rape. Why should a woman have to carry a child who is the product of a violent crime. Although its not the childs fault the crime was commited. In my opinion abortion should be illegal past 20 weeks gestation unless there is a medical condition as to where tha baby or mother will not live through the rest of pregnancy or birth.
