Dear Future President,
All humans have the right to live and this includes unborn babies. The only exception is in extreme cases such as rape or incest. It is important to be pro-life because they are all innocent human beings. Pro-choice is being all for letting the mother choose what they want. But the mother had the choice and needs to know that they have to be responsible for not only themselves but another human being to. Abortion should be illegal.
Abortion should be made illegal because if they do have sexual intercourse the people need to take responsibility for their actions and accept the consequences. Guttmacher institute says, In 2011, nearly half (45% or 2.8 million) of the 6.1 million pregnancies in the United States each year were unintended. If it was an unintended pregnancy instead of abortion they should consider adopting the baby. I truly believe that making abortion illegal will make the teens have a better look on their decision making. People need to realize that it’s not something you take care of it's an actually life you're getting rid of. Jason Ladock says, abortion can also lead to serious health complications, and in some cases the worst case scenario can be death. This is another things teens would have to worry about if they want to get rid of the baby. Getting an abortion can or may lead to complication or to your own death.
There are two cases where it is okay to abort the baby. I’m not saying i’m all for pro-choice all the time but if it’s a pregnancy caused by incest or rape then the woman should have the choice to abort the baby. They should have that choice because it’s not like they had a choice to say yes or no where as if it was between a couple they had the option to say yes or no. 1% of all abortions occur because of rape. According to Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Medical University of South Carolina, Rape-related pregnancy occurs with significant frequency. It is a cause of many unwanted pregnancies and is closely linked with family and domestic violence. See now this makes sense but if this is something that keeps happening someone is going to have to stop it because it is not okay.
Making abortions illegal helps teens understand that they can wait to have sexual intercourse. All human life is important, it should be important to everyone. If it was unintentional they should think about putting the baby up for adoption instead of aborting it.
Sincerely, Natalia T
