Having a child is often looked upon as a wonderful experience with endless rewards, but not everyone thinks this way. More and more females are having a procedure done called an abortion. In this process the pregnancy is terminated. Many women are not ready for a baby and see this as a way out. Although one can be sympathetic when a woman becomes pregnant unexpectedly, having an abortion performed is not the right answer. This procedure was legalized in the 1973 Supreme Court cases of Roe vs. Wade, and Doe vs. Boston.

The most popular argument for keeping abortions legal is that an abortion is not really killing the baby because the baby is not really alive. It has also been proven that abortion is a painful and expensive procedure that violates a human beings rights. Abortions should not remain legal simply for this small percent of babies who are conceived with these circumstances (Urishko,1). Although most people look upon childbirth as a wonderful thing, some people do not feel this way. He also believe that"tms communication skills can be taught, a process that may result in less risky sexual behavior for adolescents, which will ultimately result in less pregnancies and abortions There are alternatives for abortion.
