A Matter of Choice
The topic of abortion is one of the most controversial of our
times. It has caused countless deaths and several violent confrontations
between the two separate parties of opinion. The fight between pro-life
and pro-choice supporters has been long and brutal. This is because,
despite what several people may believe, abortion is neither right nor
wrong. It is a matter of personal opinion. In this way, each side can say
with certainty that the other is wrong.
The ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union) is the nation's
preeminent defender of the Constitution and The Bill of Rights, they
defend the rights of all. The ACLU has protected the right of woman to
choose abortion, and in recent years has argued the key cases opposing
restrictions that deny woman access to reproductive health care. Policy
263 states: "The ACLU holds that every woman, as a matter of her
right to the enjoyment of life, liberty, and privacy, should be free to
determine whether and when to bear children."
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.
By the mid 20th century, decisions about abortion often went to
hospital review boards. There were also several groups arguing that
abortion laws should be changed. In 1959 The American Law Institute
proposed revisions that were used by a number of states. In the 1960s an
outbreak of German measles (which often cause serious birth defects) led
to more abortions. Some doctors, fearing prosecution, argued for more
liberal laws. In 1969 Planned Parenthood supported the
repeal of anti-abortion laws. In 1970 Hawaii and New York repealed, but in
1972 a referendum to liberalize the law in Michigan was defeated. The
sudden and far reaching change came only after 1973 when the United States
Supreme Court ruled in Roe v. Wade that a Texas anti-abortion
statute was unconstitutional.
No matter how much you want to deny it, abortion is taking a human life.
End of story. If a friend were to come up to me and say she was getting an
abortion I would urge her not to do so, for the baby AND for herself (many
neglect the fact that most mothers who go through an abortion suffer guilt
and depression afterwards.) And if she went through it anyway, I would
still be there to support her in whatever way I could. Being pro-life does
NOT mean that someone's an uncaring, wanting to take away all your rights,
mean, person. It means we care enough to care that an innocent human life
is being taken, and to try to oppose it.
