What Would You Rather?I personally think that if a woman wants to have an abortion, she should have every right to without being accused of murdering her unborn child. What if that woman was raped and doesn't want to have the child that her rapist gave her? Should she have to raise that child if it could painfully remind her of what happened to her to create the child? If she wants to keep the child, then great, but if she doesn't, why should she be critised about it?
And what about teen pregnancies? If a 13, 14, 15, 16, etc. year old girl gets pregnant, why should she be forced to keep it? She has the option of adoption but why bring another child into this world just to put him/her in an adoption agency where that child may be subjected to 18 years of various foster homes? And if the teen decides to keep the baby, not only will the teen possibly lose her chance of graduating high school, going to college, and overall being a normal teen, but the baby will suffer. Teens dont know how to raise babies, they're still practically babies themselves. I know there are some teens who are responsible and mature and are forced to raise their siblings, but they don't want to do that. From what I've seen, most teenagers today can not raise a baby on their own properly, therefore the baby would not grow up with as good of a life as they would if they were born with parents who are able to take care of that child. I think that if a teen is pregnant and knows they cannot give their baby a good life, they should be able to have an abortion if they wish to, without society calling that teen a murderer.
