Babies, Body Rights and Big Brother

Thoughts on the US Abortion Ruling

Personal Disclaimer

A Conflict of Two Inalienable Rights

“Abortion involves both the potential mother’s right to bodily autonomy (and health) and the unborn child’s right to life-two inalienable rights that abortion sets against one another.”

“According to data from the World Health Organization (WHO), the legality of abortion across the world actually has little to no effect on abortion rates throughout the world. Legal or not, abortions can, will, and do take place. The legality of abortion, however, does affect how safe those abortions are. Women who do not have access to a legal abortion frequently turn to illegal or “homemade” abortion options, which are typically much riskier, more dangerous, and less effective than legal options conducted by professional doctors in a clinical setting would be.”
