Abortion is a topic that has people in the United States split in half. this is so because of the clashing of opinions on what is based to be "correct". Some people feel that abortion goes against the bible and that it's a from of murder. While others think that abortion is necessary at times and that it can be justified by economic situations. this is a debate that has come from the past all the way to the present because it is still a very controversial issue. i think this has remained this way because people refuse to be open about things that affect our lives, I'm not saying its OK to kill an innocent human being but there are things like the economic stability and the ability to care for the child have to come into consideration. Once you have a child it's your responsibility to provide for him or her, the government is not going to give you all the means for taking care of your baby. That's why i feel that abortion is truly your choice and that you have to have true reason to feel that an abortion is necessary.
I have recently heard that the government is trying to establish an amendment that does not let a woman's health insurance cover an abortion. I think that that is taking power away from women because an abortion is not like buying a pair of sneakers. An abortion when you look at it is a very pricey thing. This makes me come to the conclusion that the government is trying to suppress women even more and trying to limit their rights. It's not like they haven't done that enough over our nations history. To me this is another form of control by the government and i think that this amendment should not even be considered because for some insurance is the only option they have when its comes to abortion.
This issue of abortion became known on a large scale basis by people when the court case Roe vs Wade which established the right for women to able to decide what is right for herself even if that meant having an abortion. This court case lead the way for how controversial the idea of abortion is. I think this happened because abortion was a topic that was kept behind closed doors and this helped people face that this is something that needs to acknowledged. The thinking of whether a woman can be viewed as a murderer because of the fact that they are choosing to kill something that is alive even though a child is not considered alive until it takes it's first breath has given this topic a very bad overview. Many people have mixed opinions but i feel that abortion should be done in the best interest of the child because a woman has to think about how to take care of a child and if they can economically,mentally and physically.
