Abortion is debated constantly. Should it be legal? I believe it should. Is it murder? Is a fetus truly a life? I’m not sure. What I do know is that a woman should have the right to choose what she wants to do with her body. If she is too young, if she was raped, if she is just not ready, it should be her decision. Making abortion illegal would simply make women go about it in an unsafe manner. It would not prevent it from happening. The graphic itself is filled with what I’m assuming would run through the mind of someone who found themself contemplating abortion. “Should I keep it? I’m not ready for this. How did this happen? What are my options? Baby? I’m too young. I thought we were being careful. He did this to me. Abortion? I can’t handle this. It isn’t fair to the baby. I don’t want it.” All of these thoughts lead to the fact that “it’s her choice.” That is the point I’m hoping to get across. It is the woman’s decision and no one can make it for her.
