Yes, it should be legal. As others have said, desperate women do desperate things and many die as a result of illegal, backyard abortions right throughout the world where abortion is illegal. Making abortions illegal does NOT stop it happening. Research shows that the best thing you can do to decrease the abortion rate is not to make it illegal, but to have comprehensive sex education and birth control, and to make birth control readily available to all who are sexually active.

The problem with making abortion illegal, is that it tends to be a religious argument, more often than not. Birth control is also often a religious argument. If you look at the statistics, in many places where abortion is illegal, either sex education is limited, birth control is limited due to religious reasons, or birth control is too expensive for the average person in the population and an illegal abortion is less expensive. Therefore, the abortion is going to be higher.

If you were truly interested in making sure abortion rates decrease, you would have a quick look at the statistics. Statistically, highly restrictive abortion laws are NOT associated with lower abortion rates. Abortion rates are 2 1/2 time more in many countries where abortion is illegal, than in countries where it is legal. So....if you don't like high abortion rates...solve the problem, don't just ban the solution many opt to take.

Well, lets look at this logically. Are YOU (OP) a female? Do YOU want someone else telling you whether or not YOU can make a medical decision for yourself?

Yes, it needs to be legal, if only for safety reasons.
