One frequently brought up statement about abortion is that it should be legal for women who have been raped or sexually abused. However, why should the child be punished for something the father did? Moreover, why should the mother be put in harms way for no reason? If she doesn’t want the baby why doesn’t she just put it up for adoption? To answer the first question, the baby should not. To answer the second question, she should not. In fact, a study conducted in Finland found that out of every 100, 000 pregnancies 27 women die in full term live births and 101 die during abortion. This study was funded by the government proving its validity. Finally, for the last question, there is nothing stopping the mother from putting her child up for abortion.
