Abortion laws have been a topic of debate for many years. Abortion battles many ideas of ethical and moral issues. Currently, abortion laws are created by state legislature and therefore vary greatly. Abortion laws are based on whether or not the state itself is pro-abortion or anti-abortion. Currently in the United States, some general abortion laws must be abided by throughout all of the states. Abortion must be done, if the woman chooses to so, for the following reasons:
To protect woman’s life
To protect a woman’s physical healthy
If a woman is mentally unstable to have or take care of a child
If the child was conceived by a rape
If the fetus has defects
If the family is unable to financially afford to take care of the child
A complete list of abortion laws which pertain to individual states can be found on the state’s official website.
