Women have the moral right to choose what to do with their body. A woman should not be forced into motherhood because of an unwanted pregnancy. Denying a woman the right to choose to have an abortion will condemn her to be financially liable and take care of an unwanted child for 18 years. Many people who take the pro-life stance fail to acknowdledge the hardships and difficulties of motherhood. They argue that “babies should be saved” yet how they plan to save children from a rough and tumoltous life when 73% of women who have abortions do it because they are unable to afford and provide for a child and 48% would be single mothers; all factors that affect children’s development and progress in life (“U.S. Abortion Statistics” 3).

It is important for teens to think about their future. Girls that are 15 years old they get pregnant and at the same time they just feel like killing their self because they think that their parents will not respond for that.

Growing up as a young girl, getting pregnant, having babies and making a family is a dream for most girls. Having kids is a big deal because that is when the matureness kicks in and when time comes around with playing mommy, waking up early, feeding, and stress. Becoming pregnant is a lot of work and I believe it takes time and it is a preparation game. Some parents get pregnant unexpectedly and want to have the kid and others would like to kill the fetus because the parents aren 't ready to have a baby.

UPS declined her request, stating that it was the company’s policy to provide light-work duty only in three limited situations: for those employees that were injured on the job, had temporarily lost their federal certificate to drive a commercial vehicle, or had a condition that was covered by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
The Lamaze method was created by Ferdinand Lamaze, the original creator of the “hee-hee-hoo” method of childbirth breathing.

In the 1930s, harsh weather conditions in the United States turned fields into dust and caused many Americans to suffer through extreme hardship and poverty. Many migrant families were destitute as they struggled just to survive. Dorothea Lange captured the plight of one of these families in her photograph Migrant Mother.
