Dear Future President,
My name is Katie and I go to Skyview High School in Montana. First off I would like to congratulate you on your victory. I am writing this letter to bring forth a issue in our country that needs to be addressed. The issue that I am addressing is abortion. I know that you are probably getting many letters about this but it is an important issue in America. I believe that abortion is wrong and needs to be stopped. When a person decides to do abortion it is murder. Many people would disagree with me but you are taking away the babies decision of life and saying that it does not deserve a chance.
The problems of abortion is that it is wrong and there are many reasons why people consider and do abortion. One reason is because they can not take care of the baby, whether it be that they don't have the money or they are just not ready for a baby. Another reason is that they just don’t want the baby or they do not want any kids and sometimes they just don’t want the baby now.
There are some different ways that abortion is caused. Some ways that it is caused is at parties that are not responsible. Another way is rape it is rare but it does happen.
In the 1800’s was when women healers in the western part of europe and the US provided abortion. But the state did not prohibit abortion until the 19th century. Abortion was prohibited in 30 states at one time and it was legal under certain circumstances like rape in 20 states. The Roe v. Wade law is to protect a woman's right to choose an abortion since the US the supreme court's decision in 1973.
Here are some facts on abortion. Did you know that the baby acutely feels the pain of the abortion. The first response to it is a spinal reflex. If the baby is past 20 weeks they assume that there will be pain to the fetus and the pain would be excruciating. They have seen a baby's mouth open for a silent scream.If you have an abortion you run the risk of further medical problems. Also when a mother has a abortion it reduces the number of adoptions. There are people that can not have kids of there own and they would adopt the kids. Life begins at conception so that means that even an unborn baby has right of life and killing the baby is taking that right away. Also 9.3% of abortions reported to the Center for Disease Control (or the CDC) in 2011 were done by women who had had three or more previous abortions.
Some solutions that might work is making it illegal to have an abortion. Other things that you can do is making it so you can only have an abortion if is a good enough reason to do that. Another way that you can fix it is if you tell the expecting mother what they can do instead of an abortion and really stress that point of adoption. Another option that you can consider is giving the doctors a choice to do the surgery or not. If they want to do the surgery then that is their choice and they should not be punished. because that is their belief and if they think that abortion is okay then so be it.
I think that abortion will grow to be a bigger problem than what it is now if we don’t at the very least try and stop it. I think that the mothers just need to know the good things that come from not having an abortion.Maybe once they give birth they might want to get to the kid once they are ready. At one point abortion was illegal I think that if you try hard enough you can fix it once and for all. Not only would you be remembered for being the 45th president of the United States but you would be know for ending abortion. Thank you for taking the time out of your busy day to read my letter.
