Change The Law Of Abortion

Each year, one million American teenagers are pregnant and eighty-five percent of these pregnancies are unintended. One and a half million each year are ended by abortion. Now it is time for the government to pass a law to make abortion illegal across the nation because it is a bad influence for the young people, innocent babies are being killed, and it will affect teenagers' lives when they get older.

In 1973, the United States Supreme Court made a decision that women have a constitutional right to decide whether or not to terminate a pregnancy. Abortion became legal across the nation. This law has been in the United States for twenty-seven years now. It is time to change this law and make abortion illegal across the nation. Abortion is a bad influence for the young people, how is it this way? If teenagers who are pregnant and have abortion then America would not be a good country for young people to look at.

Young people grow up to see the future ahead of them; they do not want to make any wrong choices for their future. For example, Laura is only fifteen year old; she just found out that she is pregnant with John, who is her boyfriend. He said that if Laura does not have an abortion he would leave Laura. After they looked up some information on the Internet, they decided not to have an abortion because there are many people in this world that would be glad to adopt a child. Therefore, they decided giving up the child for adoption.

Studies show that forty-eight percent of US women have had abortion. There have been forty million abortions since 1973, and 4,000 unborn babies are killed each day. Is this what should happen...
