Abortion should be legalized in the US. Abortion is something women in the United States need. It should only be allowed when the child has not developed too far through the cycle. If a woman is raped should she have to give birth to a child she never asked for? No, that child has no idea that it even exists, and for anybody who is religious out there, the baby would go to heaven because it was 100% innocent and sin free. It is not murder! It is mercy for the woman, and is done to create a better future for the woman. Simple enough.
