Should abortion be illegal?
Another argument used by USA Today-Newspaper "While half the states mandate a waiting period, usually 24 hours, between counseling and an abortion, three -- Missouri, South Dakota and Utah -- require a wait of 72 hours, and women must show up in person both times. If clinics are far away, that translates to at least two days off work." States keep making it more and more difficult to get an abortion. making the women come multiple times to talk about the child and getting an abortion, trying to make them feel attached so that deciding to go ahead with the abortion is harder than needed almost forcing them not to get it.
Sarah Dutton has much information about abortion and people have given her quotes to help her prove her point that women should be able to have the choice to have an abortion.Just like this quote from her article "Some might go as far to say that aborting a fetus is similar to a mother cat killing their young in the circumstance that they feel their kitten is not fit to survive or any human taking a loved one off of life support. Senior Daisy Grant said, "If someone is on life support and their social support deems the situation too strenuous in all perspectives for the individual to continue living, they typically take them off of life support."" Proving the fact that abortion is like taking your loved one of life support, knowing that they won't have a chance to live their life what do you do, you should give them relief and let them go so they don't have to suffer.
Sarah Dutton writes that "According to The Journal of the American Medical Association, a fetus does not have the capability of sensing pain due to the fact that their neural development has not yet matured enough for a connection between the cerebral cortex and thalamus to allow the fetus an acknowledgement of pain." So pretty much if a fetus can't even feel what your doing whats the harm that is being done? yes you may consider this murder but think about it The fetus is not born it hasn't even developed those main nervous system organs. so if you are letting something not continue to develop that hasn't develop yet is like deleting an essay before it's even started to be written yet, which doesn't make sense because you haven't done anything yet so there is nothing to delete.
One last point that Sarah Dutton says "To say people who support or who have had abortions are "selfish bigots" is inexcusable. They put themselves at higher risks of health problems and still continue to go through with the procedure. To say these people are bigots, is ironic and toxic." This is Ironic because when a Pro-Life supporter says a Pro-choice is a bigot they are saying how Pro-Choice doesn't listen to any other reasons why they should have no choice for an abortion. Even though Pro-Life supporters are stubborn to listen to any other arguments on whether or not you should have a choice on the abortion. People that get Abortions have to think long and hard because getting an abortion is not easy it leaves are mark in your life, so how could you be selfish when your risking you well being to stop something that could bring much more harm into a life.
