I have no problem with pro-choice and pro-abortion.
Follow Roe v Wade. That is the law.
Considering the high number of abortions in our country, this signifies a very unhealthy female population.
Didn't the Supreme Court say that the State couldn't interfere when the decision is based on the medical judgment of her physician.
So, let the medical judgment be examined. Either women's health is extremely horrible, or medical judgment isn't being exercised.
Reasons for abortions
Another study, in 1998, revealed that in 1987-1988 women reported the following as their primary reasons for choosing an abortion: The source of this information, takes findings into account from 27 nations including the United States, and therefore these findings may not be typical for any one nation.
