Should Abortion be Legal?

Hello! I am arguing the side of pro-choice. I chose this for the following reasons: (1)Condoms and birth control do not always work, so abortions need to be a backup plan.

The burden of proof is shared.DefinitionsAbortion: 'a medical procedure used to end a pregnancy and cause the death of the fetus'

Before I start, I urge anyone who is taking the time to read this to always make it a point to research, research and research any topic you hear in school, or on the news, or read in a magazine or newspaper that you are even the slightest bit interested in. There are points taught in public schools that cover only one side of any given subject. Rarely is the entire spectrum of a given subject covered completely. The topic of abortion hit me after a recent debate on a current story out of Ca...

Abortion should be entirely legal, although it should never be paid for by taxpayers. The simple fact that it is the mothers choice to terminate an UNBORN child/fetus, and she can afford to pay for the procedure is good enough reason to keep abortion legal....
