Dear Future President,
I am not a person with very political views. I come from a household where current events are not talked about around the dinner table. However, on the topic of abortion I believe that those who are pregnant should be able to choose if they want an abortion or not.
Most of the pro-life arguments are based around the fact that life exists in babies at conception, or even before. However, I believe that those who heavily consider abortion are not fit to be parents. Many abortions stem from accidental pregnancies, and from these, I believe that many of the possible parents would not raise the child in a positive or nurturing environment. The other argument brought up by pro-life activists is adoption. They argue that there are around 100,000 kids who are qualified for adoption, with over 2 million couples who are considering adoption. However, 23,000 kids each year remain in foster care without finding a permanent family. Very few of these kids get college educations, and 80% of the prison population is comprised of adults who have been in the foster care system. Clearly, foster care is not the best option for the individual child or the society that child may end up endangering. By allowing abortion, it prevents a lot of emotional trauma for both the parents and the children.
I understand the arguments of the pro-life movement, but by having the ability to choose, there can be a lot of emotional pain saved. My question to you is that although abortion is legal in all states, if you support it, how would you help get rid of the state-by-state trigger laws that can make getting an abortion difficult?
