What would you do if a thirteen-year old came to you and told you that she was pregnant and that she wanted to have an abortion? Do you think it should be legal for her to be able to kill the baby so that she can go on living her life? Abortions within the United States should not be legal for any reason because it is murder. Early in 1966 Mississippi passed a law that legalized abortion for those women who had been raped.
Within four years other states started to expand and say if the pregnancy is life threatening to the mother, or the fetus had abnormalities, or the pregnancy was from
incest then it was legal to terminate the pregnancy. On January 22, 1973 the Supreme Court of the United States legalized abortion up to the 24th week or in other words the ninth month of a pregnancy, the stage where the fetus becomes viable.
