Opinion | Girls should be able to do what they want with their body

A woman’s right to abortion should be accessible everywhere


Abril Cabanas, Staffer

According to the Supreme Court, each state has the right to choose what they want to do about abortion. In Denver, Colorado abortion is legal for all stages of pregnancy. I think that Colorado made the right decision because women should be able to do what they want to do with their bodies. 

Their body is their choice. Colorado also makes late abortions, one of the very few states that let that happen. If women don’t feel right about having a baby and they know that they can’t take care of one then I think that aborting will be a good choice because a baby needs attention and effort to grow up and a nice home and supporting family. Sometimes some families won’t allow their kids to have babies until they are married and a baby needs a welcoming family.

Some states made it illegal for only some period of time. For example, in New York, if you want to, you would have to be twenty-four weeks and under unless the baby could be a risk for you or the baby. 

Overall, I just think that they should get to decide whether or not they get to keep a baby or not and others shouldn’t have to choose for a woman because it is their right to and some states should also at least give time to a certain amount of time limit of pregnancy to abort because not letting them do it is not right because a baby still isn’t formed and we wouldn’t be hurting someone.
