How is this right to be decided by a government? This is a private issue between a patient and doctor in a safe, secure, and healthy atmosphere. This is personal and it is a decision that only an individual can make after much consideration. So many times discussions for or against abortion are made to sound as if the decision is taken lightly. It is not. Unfortunately, until each of us are in the personal situation/decision ourselves, there is no way to relate. Stop the shaming!
