Abortion has proven itself to be a massively controversial topic, with both opposing and supporting sides featuring interesting arguments. The modern conservative argument focuses on the centerpiece that performing an abortion is virtually the same as killing, even if the person inside is not quite sentient during the time the abortion was performed, as I'd be expecting everyone reading this ought to know. Though a large portion of this argument is based on a subjective perspective, it makes sense - that dead child could very well have had a brilliant life robbed from them. This moral perspective begins to fall apart, however, when the potential unseen effects of making abortion illegal come into play. The mother herself could very well be harmed, or killed (See: https://www.marchofdimes.org/compli...h-maternal-death-and-maternal-mortality.aspx#) during the course of the birth of the child, and the child itself could also die in the process. Situations like these require back doors to save at least one of the two peoples involved in the childbirth process. Now, the immediate argument against this is the "You did this, you're gonna deal with it" argument. While yes, this argument applies perfectly well to two naughty teenagers that find themselves parents, the irresponsible mother should not be put into a situation where her life is at risk without any medical intervention to help save her life, even if she was responsible. A problem shouldn't be left unfixed simply because the victim of the problem was also the one behind its cause. Other times, the unborn child isn't at the root of any one person's doing. According to the Planned Parenthood organization, condoms only are effective 98% of the time, and as such means that any one couple being responsible and using a condom certainly aren't the cause of a condom's failure. That prior argument does have a catch, though. The vast majority of pregnancies won't wind up in a fatal injury, and simply killing a child because you don't want it is, well, horrible. Abortion certainly shouldn't be so widely available that it allows for members of the population to continue having reckless intercourse and producing multiple deaths by abusing the system. Not that the majority of the population will abuse the system in such a way, but it's obviously flawed such that some very well can if they care to. In most cases, if you don't want a child for one reason or another (e.g. lack of finances), the adoption system can handle the child far better than death ever could. My stance on all of this, while still relatively fluid, is that abortion should be kept. As immoral as it may be to some, it can very well save the life of the mother, and certain other cases that create situations where the benefits outweigh the sacrifices. However, the current state of the abortion system creates a flawed outcome that can be taken advantage of or could be handled in ways other than death, and needs to have some restrictions put that allow for more lives to be saved while keeping the emergency switch for abortion at the ready so those in danger can still use it, and those in undesirable situations can appeal for it.
