As Florynce Kennedy once said, “If men could become pregnant, abortion would be a sacrament.” An abortion is the termination of a pregnancy after, accompanied by, resulting in, or closely followed by the death of the embryo or fetus (Abortion). There are many reasons that a woman may want an abortion. Some of which could be: health reasons, loss of job, suffering in school, family issues, relationship issues, etc. All women react different socially, mentally and physically with a pregnancy, therefore; in order to keep control of how their body is functioning, they should have the option to choose to have an abortion.
Physically, there can be many health issues and complications with a pregnancy. Some of which include: Ovarian Cancer, Miscarriages, Sicknesses – anywhere from the flu to common colds – Baby's health issues, Umbilical Cord issues, or Blood clots (Pregnancy Complications). Miscarriages can be caused by a wide variety of reason including sexual activity, age, how far along the baby is or the health habits of the mother. Also, some women can get so sick during a pregnancy that they can be told to go on bed rest until the baby is ready to be delivered or they are induced.
