Abortion Pill Legalization

Abortions are the #1 controversial topic to exist! What is an abortion? An abortion by definition is “the deliberate termination of a human pregnancy”, in other words, ending an infant's life in the tummy before they are born. According to guttmacher.com, abortion pills accounted for over 54% of all abortions in the United States. This pill is now being taken to court. Should this pill stay legal for all states, or shall the banning of this pill begin now?


Why do people execute abortions? There are many reasons that women state why they want or have an abortion. Such as, “too early”, “not ready”, “don’t want a baby”, “can’t care for one”, ect. 


How does the pill work? Well actually, this is a two-step process. First, the woman will take a pill called Mifepristone. This pill will initially stop the pregnancy from progressing. This may cause a woman to feel nauseous or start bleeding from their uterus. The second pill is called Misopristol. Up to 48 hours after taking Mifepristone, the female will take Misoprostol. This pill will “in simple terms” kill the sex cells that are creating the baby. This pill will cause extreme cramps for the female as well as a lot of blood rushing out from the uterus. This process is very similar to a miscarriage when taking these pills. Still confused? Think of it as a forced miscarriage. 


Why is the potential banning of the abortion pill such a big deal? Mifepristone (the abortion pill) is responsible for over half of all abortions. Because of how big this pill is to abortions, this is huge for both Democrats and Republicans. Democrats are usually for “pro-choice”, whereas Republicans are usually for “pro-life”. What does that mean? If you are pro-choice, that means that you believe that women should be able to make their own decisions on what they do with their body and want abortions to be legal. If you are pro-life, you believe that abortions should be illegal and vote for the banning of this medicine. 


Depending on your political POV, there are many pros and cons to this pill and topic. In my personal religious view, I do not believe in abortions. I think that they should be illegal because I don’t think it is right to end a life, even if it hasn’t even begun. Also meaning, that I think that this pill should be banned by the court. This is a really tough topic to talk about, with many mixed opinions.


*I will try to keep posted on updates with this court case

For right now, the pill will remain legal until further notice.






Do you think that the abortion pill should be legal or illegal? Why?


Would it be easier for the female to just have the baby and put it up for adoption?


Do you think that the government will end up banning this pill?

        • I understand what you are saying there. The mother has (hopefully) at least 1 or 2 more decades of life. And most could agree that the children are our future, which makes childeren even more important. Also, people always say to keep the women alive, like in the Titanic, so then they can reproduce. But what's the point in choosing the mothers life over the child's if the mother isn't going reproduce anyway. 

  • I believe abortion is murder and it should be banned. I dont think that this pill should be a thing and no states should allow this.  I think that this pill works just like an abortion and some states have banned medical abortions, so I dont think that the states will vote to have the abortion pills.

    • I totally agree with you! Abortion is murder and I think that it should be illegal.

  • I don't have a strong opinion on this I honestly hope they band this because if you're going to get an abortion you should do it the right way I really am not for abortion and I don think this pill is doing us any good in any way these for getting rid of this would do us good.

    • I agree with you, I don't think that this is right. Personally, I don't believe in any type of abortion, but that's just my opinion.

  • I do not personally believe in abortions. I think that this pill should be illegal. I just don't understand why people can't just have the baby and not just kill it. I think that the government will not ban the abortion pill because of Biden.

    • I agree, I do think that Biden, being a Democrat, will have a better chance of keeping this pill legal for the time being.

  • Personally, I think the abortion pill should be illegal because it is still an abortion, and abortions are banned in many states. I don't think the government will ban this pill because they are only used for early pregnancies. I do think that the female should just have the baby and put it up for adoption.

    • I agree with you. I am very against abortions and I think that they should just put the baby up for adoption.

  • I personally think that this pill should be illigal because I think very life in this world should get a chance to live and I don't think the mother should get to make that decision for them, even if they think that they are to poor or they are not ready, you gave life and you shouldn'tget to say whether it goes on, once a life starts thats not your choice to make, they still deserve to live just like every other human being.
