Point 1. Control:
I disagree with the idea of any one person especially in the government having anything to do with the common peoples personal lives and choices. We as a people elect officials to govern us as a general whole. Not only to punish those that do wrong but to protect the rights of us all. I think it a bit extreme for elected officials to start making laws that govern what we do in our homes. It does not seem fair that a group of officials would use their power to tell a woman what she should or should not do with her body. That seems to be steps away from communistic control, like telling a couple how many children they are allowed to have. Allowing a body of government to ban abortions just opens the door to other moralized topics to be questioned.
Counterpoint: In this day and age it is logical to have some type of control over what citizens need or want.
Point 2. Necessity:
It is my opinion that most of those that believe that abortions should be banned are mostly part of religious based groups. Religious based groups have been known to voice how immoral it is to abort a fetus. It seems only right that a woman who has the full rights and abilities to conceive, carry to term and birth a living human being has also the same rights to prevent a birth. Even when it becomes medically needy for a woman to make that decision. Around the world thousands of women are raped, I think it unfair to make them have to endure additional hardship by carrying an unwanted child full term.
All in all, I do believe abortion should not be doled out to every woman pregnant with a child. Education for the young and inexperienced. Birth control for those not ready to have a child. Even family counseling but best of all, intervention by parents at an early age teaching the moralistic qualities of having and raising a family.
