Also, because I know these posts love to draw the pro-life crowd, I’m going to include this as a short reference. That is not the point of this post and I will not be debating the point. Abortion is an extremely safe procedure when done well and, in the absence of legal options, creates a considerable risk to women’s health as evidenced by multiple studies. The Roe v. Wade decision, referencing the 14th Amendment, made abortion legal.

There are times when it should not be used, and where that line exists is up for debate, but the legality of the procedure itself is not. Religious arguments do not matter to those who do not share the same faith, and it’s wrong to impose that worldview on people. If you object to abortion on religious grounds, do not have one. No one is mandating abortions, you are still free to live according to your worldview.
