Teens who choose abortion because they recognize their own immaturity and inability to care for a baby are making a responsible decision; it may not be one that everyone agrees with, but it also cuts short a cycle that is on the rise in the U.S. -- children giving birth to children.
Women who abort run higher risks of future infertility, 7 miscarriages,8 ectopic pregnancy,9 and premature birth of future children For teens, abortion may mean never being able to have children. Abortion is an identified risk factor in breast cancer The risk for aborting teens may be even greater.
I think 18 and 19 year olds are technically teenagers but since they are classified as adults should not be included in this debate. Minors who choose to have sex need to have options. My knee jerk reaction is yes, they should have legal access to abortion because if we do not allow legal access to abortion they will gain access illegally.
