Why is it legal to abort?


Wiki User

The reasons against it is usually religious and religion and state are apart. Medically there are no reasons not to since the embryo/fetus is not aware, feel no pain, can not live by itself etc. They found that the trauma for a woman to have a unwanted child would be too big and that her mental health was improved when abortion was an option. Legally and medically it's not a baby or child being aborted.The US Supreme Court found that the right to privacy also included the right to intimate privacy and in this case her body - her choice. So according to them it's in the Constitution.
