            For many years, abortions have been a controversial topic worldwide. America, a country built on the concept of freedom, comes in at the top for disputes over the topic. Varying views, whether conservative or liberal, effect each person’s opinion on abortions. However, it boils down to more than just life or death of a fetus: woman’s rights are closely tied.

            The Supreme Court of America decriminalized abortions in 1973, but many states still place regulations on when abortion is considered morally and legally acceptable. Out of the other 194 countries in the world, only 60 do not regulate or restrict abortions. This leaves 134 countries to have abortions banned under all circumstances. Many of which also have little to no female rights. Not allowing legal, professionally performed abortions pushes women to self-induce unsafe terminations of pregnancy. This can lead to infections, injuries, future infertility, spread of disease and often death. Safe procedures don’t only help prevent negative effects on a woman’s body, they also help prevent negative psychological effects.

            Some people believe that deliberately terminating a pregnancy is a selfish act of murder towards a future human being. Although life begins at contraception, a fetus is not legally considered a human until after birth. There are many valid reasons for a woman to seek an abortion, such as: being in poverty, having no support from the child’s biological father, fear, inability to be a proper parent, having medical conditions that will negatively affect the fetus, and rape victims. Women deserve the right to integrity over their own body, as very citizen should.

            Forcing a woman to carry an unwanted child is selfish. Bringing a child into a world where they are not fully loved and cared for is selfish. Terminating a pregnancy to prevent negative effects on a woman’s body, life and mental health is not selfish.

            Being pro-choice is not being pro-abortion. Being pro-choice means being pro-woman. No woman should ever feel ashamed to make a decision that’s right for her and her lifestyle. Your views are dependent on you. Don’t force them on other people.
