Abortion



        Abortion has been one of this country's most controversial topic on hand. But
        if one sees the constitutional infringement to women by the restriction of
        abortion, the torment to the unwanted child and the anguish society has to
        sustain,then this topic would not be so debatable. Too many people do not
        see the cause and effect of not being able to have abortions. All human beings
        are given some inalienable right guaranteed by the Constitution. One of those
        privilege is the right to pursue happiness. A baby can sometimes disrupt a
        woman's pursuit of happiness. Even if she decides to give it up for adoption,
        she still has the burden of carrying the fetus for nine months. Having the
        option to perform an abortion can solve that obstacle. Taking away this right
        would be invading on a woman's constitutional liberty. The unwanted child
        also suffers. Most of the time the mother of the unwanted child is very young
        and inexperienced or too poor to take care of the child. The child is usually
        malnourished, has no medical care, and gets very little attention or love. The
        foster care system isn't any better. Only a small percentage of the children are
        adopted by suitable parents. But the rest remain in the foster care system,
        where there is little or no personal care. In both cases, the child has a poor
        education because of the lack of attention and discipline. He grows up to be
        unproductive individual or a menace to society. Many get involved in drugs
        and crimes. These individuals are also very violent, lacking morality due small
        amount of care they received themselves. In the long run, not only does the
        child suffer but also society, who has to tolerate his violent behavior and
        crimes. An abortion can be seen as putting the child out of misery while he
        doesn't have the ability to reason or fear. In short, abortion allows a woman
        to retain her constitutional rights, it relieves a would be suffering child out of
        his distress and it establishes a safer and more peaceful society. On these
        grounds, abortion should be kept legal, and even encouraged to specific
        individuals, for benefits to all of us.
