Abortion remains a controversial subject that continues to remain so as debate rages about when exactly life begins. There are legitimate arguments for people who oppose late-term abortions. To protect the right to choose for all women in the U.S., states should be able to determine on their own when life begins.
Although I am pro choice I often see people on the left use the argument that the state should not be able to legislate women's bodies. I disagree with this simply because the state is elected by the people for the people giving them the right to create legislation within the legislation.
No, states should not have the ability to declare when life begins in the womb. A woman's body is her own responsibility, and they should be given full ability to decide whether or not to carry a fetus to term. This is not the job of a government with an agenda.
State should leave the task of deciding when life begins in the womb to the doctors, they know best and we should all follow that. Advocating for state to be the judge on the matter is a way of trying to fully legalize abortion. If the doctors say life begins after conception, that's it.
What a woman does with her body is her choice. When deciding whether or not to carry her fetus to term, no one else should be making the decision. A woman ought to be able to seek an abortion up until a point where the fetus could live outside the womb. It is at that point that we should then start looking at what options a person may have.
