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 could not agree more.

        • Do you think that this pill will be banned or not? Although I want the pill to be banned, I don't think it will be.

  • I think the abortion pill should be illegal as well as all types of abortions. Getting an abortion is the same as killing a harmful baby. If you didn't want to be pregnant and have a child in the first place, then don't go around doing stuff with males, it's not that hard. If you are not financially stable or stable enough to raise a kid, there are people to help you. Adoption solves problems in these types of situations, NOT abortion. 

    • I agree, I think that adoption is the correct decision that doesn't involve killing a baby. People (usually teens) are putting themselves in these types of positions by doing stupid stuff.

  • I Personally believe that the pill shoud be illegal because it is killing a human but I also think that it should be up to the mother what she does to her body because you can not force someone to take something if it is not in thier political view but my final decision is that it should be banned.

    • I agree, I think that from a religious and political view, abortions are wrong.

  • I think that the abortion pill should be illegal, as well as having abortions all together. I think that it is unbiblical for a woman to keep a baby from being born. That child is already alive when it is inside them, so its considered killing them. If it is truely not going to work for the woman to raise the child, I think that it should be put up for adoption. I also think that you need to watch what you are doing. Don't get pregnant if you dont want to have a kid. I think our left leaning government won't ban the pill, but I think that it should be.

    • I agree, if this law ever gets passed to ban this pill for abortions, I think that they should try to ban abortions afterall. 

  • I think that the pill should be illegal, abortion is completely wrong and your taking away a a life. Abortion is murder and if this gets passed I think many states will ban this pill. I hope that it does happen because it is a terrible thing and nobody should be allowed to take this pill and take a life.

    • I agree, personally, I think that abortion is just disgusting and wrong. It is ending a life, which is murder. I can't believe that this is legal in the first place.
