Legalising abortion remains a divided social and political issue globally The pro-choice side argues for the freedom of women to make decisions about their body and also best plan their future families The opposing argument the pro-life side points to ethics on life and likens abortion to murder Abortion became legal in Australia shortly after abortion was legalised in the United States through the Supreme court case Roe vs Wade Jane Roe a single and pregnant woman successfully fought the state of Texas for the legalisation of abortion Australians overall have accepted this action and challenges are not felt as frequently as in the United StatesThere are several strong reasons why abortion should continue to be legalised in Australia Legalised abortion can help women to have control in setting up their future allowing them to have children when they are mentally and financially ready Abortion also has the ability to prevent severe medical health problems in both the potential child and the mother They can also pre-emptively prevent children with mental or physical disabilities from being born as well Legalisation of abortion discourages women from resorting to the black market where less medical oversight and caution is taken For example at the age of 24 Anna Luisa was rushed to hospital with a severely swollen inflamed red belly the result of an acute uterine infection caused by pushing pills obtained from the black market into her own vagina to induce an abortion Ultimately the majority of Australians are in favour of legalised abortion and no change of ruling is requiredKeeping abortion legalised would allow young women to set their future career up and it would prevent them from having a child they couldnt financially support A 2005 survey in the sexual and reproductive health journal Perspectives asked young women why they had had an abortion Seventy-three per cent of respondents said they could not afford a baby and 38 claimed that giving birth would interfere
