Why Abortion Should Be Legal


Abortion should be legal.

Roe v. Wade (1973), was a landmark decision of the U.S. Supreme Court in which the Court ruled that the Constitution of the United States conferred the right to have an abortion. The decision struck down many federal and state abortion laws. 

On June 24th, 2022, Roe v. Wade was overturned. Thousands of women in the U.S are outraged by this decision.

I believe that it’s very stupid and misogynistic to try and take control of a woman’s body. It should be up to them to decide on this decision.

If a woman needs to have an abortion to save her own life, she can’t get one.

“I believe it should be legal because it’s an individual’s right to choose what they want to do with their own body,” says Abby Wash.

“The baby, whether he/she is born or not, has the right to live. Who can say that the baby has no hope? It’s possible that the baby can have a better life than ours. We don’t have any right to kill a newborn baby. Moreover, I think only human beings do abortions. Humans are the only animals that kill their babies intentionally,” says Miki Kuroda on public.asu.edu
