Dear Next President,
It is my position that abortions are too easily obtainable to women in the United States. About 12.3% of women are physically incapable of conception, and about 40% of women with unplanned pregnancies, get abortions. I believe that we need more background on women getting abortions and that it should not be as easy as it is now to call and book an appointment to get an abortion. Abortion is used too often, we tend to push abortion on the young women, we need to learn to accept the pregnancies of young women in the United States and help and support them.
Most importantly, if the woman can safely continue with the pregnancy, but cannot afford to take care of a baby or are not ready, why not have the child and give those who can’t have children a chance? According to abort73.com, from 1973 to 2011, nearly 53 million legal abortions took place in the United States. As a nation, I believe that we should stop abortion for those who are not harmed by their pregnancy and decrease the taking of innocent lives. Many people say that abortions are not considered murder because the child is not yet born and breathing, but I believe that life starts at conception. In our country alone, we take millions of innocent lives every year because women are afraid of pregnancy and childbirth.
It’s shocking when you look at
Almost four years ago, my older brother, who was twenty-two years old at the time, found out that his girlfriend, who was then twenty-three, was expecting a child. Per the usual in young pregnancies, there was the decision between adoption, abortion, and keeping the baby. I believe that they have made the best decision of their lives by deciding to keep the child, they both now have higher goals for themselves and lead successful lives. Their lives were, by far, changed for the better with the birth of their son. Many people believe that young women only have the options of abortion and adoption with an unexpected pregnancy, but women in America have the right to say no to that, and we need to support them in their choices because it can potentially make their lives better. People would say that there are times when
In conclusion, I believe that there should be more background on women in the U.S.

Abortion Pros and Cons
By 1976, after Roe v. Wade had legalized abortion nationwide, this number dropped to two.  The
World Health Organization estimated in 2004 that unsafe abortions cause 68,000 maternal
deaths worldwide each year, many of those in developing countries. “Should Abortion
