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?

                    • Though I am a man, I don't think that many women would say that. At least I can use my mom as an example, I know that she would risk her life for me, and I think that most moms feel the same way. Though it may just look like a clump of cells, there is a soul in there. Waiting to become something greater. It is incredible that us humans can reproduce, and the fact that we just throw that away is just shocking to me.

                    • you assume most women would choose their child over themself but you do realize that humans are selfish if it were me and this will sound bad but I would get rid of that thing quicker than you can say hello. choosing a unalive clump of cells over a living breathing fully formed human is in my opinion just morally wrong. 

                    • 1. I really don't think that I would let that happen to my wife in the first place. 2. Even though it may sound bad, yes, I would choose a child over an adult. And I think that the most moms would choose to do that to. It would not be easy to recover from that, but yes, I would make that decision.

      • I get it, it could save the mothers life, but not the baby's.

      • Especially if you are not even thinking about what would this kid would be or how it would grow up you need to think oh man I'm actually killing a child that would have a life like you are ruining the kid's life by not making then have one.

        • I agree, people need to think of the future of the baby.

    • Personally, I don't believe in that. I won't disrespect your opinion, only disagree with it. I am a very religious person so I don't believe in abortion or anything about it.

  • I personally think that the abortion pill should be illegal. It is still killing the baby and if some states don't allow abortion I don't think it makes sense to have the abortion pill because the result is the same, ending up killing the baby. I think that it is a hard decision because sometimes the mom's life is in danger but puting the kid for adoption is a brave and good decision to take if the parents can't take care of the baby. 

    • I agree, I think that abortion is murder and that it should be illegal. If you can't take care of the baby, please just put it up for adoption. I really don't know how I feel yet on if the female would be risking her life. 

      • this could be harsh, but the mother obviously has less of a life yet than the babies, so they should have the baby anyway, nobody is thinking about the babies future.
