Abortions must remain legal, but with regulations set in place to protect society and individuals from irresponsible behaviors that can come about because of this practice. Abortion can do more harm than good, and the government’s job is to prevent that from happening. It is in the best interest of our country to disallow certain practices like partial birth abortion while maintaining the civil rights of the expectant mothers. Making abortion illegal will not make it go away, it will just make it another vice service of criminal organizations. Americans have the right to drive a car, but driving is strictly regulated, so regulating abortions is not a violation of civil liberties.
