During the late 1960s the number of illegal abortions preformed annually in the United States was estimated to be from 200000 to 12 million Jost 260 In 1965 an estimated 200 women died from crudely administered illegal abortions 260 Even after abortion was legalized it was still an extremely controversial subject with two very distinct sides The topic is so controversial that some people even resort to violent measures as a means of protest Most notably are the acts from the pro-life side wording Since 1977 there have been more than 6000 clinic blockades and invasions Solinger 106 Also thousands of acts of violence have been committed against abortion providers more than two hundred attempted or completed arsons and fire bombings at abortion related facilities and hundreds of death threats 106 The two sides pro-choice and pro-life both have very passionate views about the abortion topic Pro-life believes no matter what that the fetus is a person and that to have an abortion would always murder Pro- choice believes the right to choose an abortion is a guaranteed right of the American women However both sides are much more complex and there seems to be no sign of finding common ground for the two sides of the debate Today however with a conservative president and congress the accessibility to obtain an abortion is much lower than it was in the past Certain procedures are being attacked and even the right to choose an abortion is being threatened As a nation of freedom and choice the United States should keep the high courts ruling and keep abortion legal Abortion is not a topic that has come about only recently It has been around for many decades In fact abortion dates as far back as to ancient civilization There were many crude and unusual methods used by doctors to perform the procedure One method included inserting pastes made with mashed ants and gun powder into the uterus
