“Abortion does not make you un-pregnant, it makes you the mother of a dead baby”-Jacqueline Naour. Before researching this report I did not really think about how they kill the child or how the abortion actually occurs, so I did not really think much of it or know it was such a bad thing. As I have written this report I realized that it is honestly one of the worst things I’ve ever read about and should be illegal without question. Abortion should be illegal because it makes human life disposable, fewer babies are available for adoption, fetuses can feel pain during the abortion, it endangers the mother getting the abortion, and the child has no say, meaning it kills innocent people.
In 1973, when Roe vs. Wade happened, the government passed the law that abortion should be legal in the United States. After the law was passed, the abortion rates went up a lot, but slowly started lowering over the past few decades (10 Reasons Abortion Should be Illegal). The number of providers of abortion has gone down since the 1970s, but has remained the same since the early 2000s. In 2011, the government had to make more laws regarding abortion so there were several more restrictions. More laws were made between 2011 and 2013 regarding abortions than in all previous years. A few years ago some states banned getting abortions after you reach 20 weeks of pregnancy, or midterm. These are the main statistics and laws that have happened since 1973.
