I don’t think abortion should be illegal for many reasons from both the parents’ perspective and the child's perspective. First of all, it is a woman's choice to determine her future and what happens to her body. She should have the final say and abortion should be a choice if that’s what she wants. If we make abortion illegal, then her human rights are violated and that isn’t justifiable. Secondly, our world isn’t a safe place and rape can happen anywhere and to anyone. Victims of rape should not be burdened with the responsibility to conceive and raise the child. There are many teen victims of rape as well as many teen pregnancies, but these girls are merely teenagers and can’t even support themselves, let alone another human being. They are not mentally and physically prepared to take on this responsibility and we can not force it upon them. People might say that there are adoption services and many other support services to help people in need. The services we have right now aren’t good enough and many people don’t feel okay with not having the option of abortion. We don’t live in a society where these things are properly funded and they can fully support people when they need it. There are also cases where abortion is only option to preserve the life of woman.This article (https://www. usato day.com/story/news/nation/2012/10/19/abortion-mother-life-walsh/1644839/) states that “In cases like severe infections, heart failure and severe cases of preeclampsia(a condition in which a woman develops very high blood pressure and is at risk for stroke) abortion would be the only way.” Now from the child’s standpoint. It is unfair to bring a child into the world if it’s parents aren’t ready for it. The child wouldn’t be able to live a full and happy life with the limited resources available and the limited knowledge their parents have. Another issue is if the parents are criminals or abusive. The child should not have to live in that sort of environment and deal with their parents' problems. There are also many cases where the child is unwanted by the parents and they shouldn’t have to be brought up in an environment where they aren’t loved and cared for. In conclusion, it is unfair to the woman because she should have full control over her body and her future, and it also isn’t fair to the child if they are born into a bad environment and aren’t able to live up to their potential.
