The article explains America’s overall stance on what abortions laws should be. Data shows that three-quarters of Americans believe that the choice is up to the women and her doctor. There are plenty of court rulings that battle against abortion law, and there are many arguments being made on the topic, ranging from protecting unborn life of carrying a burden on the parents.

“A separate question finds 36 percent support state laws that make it more difficult for abortion clinics to operate, while 58 percent oppose such restrictions, including 45 percent who oppose them ‘strongly.'”(100-102)
