Reading through my Criminology book I see that crime is subject to where you are. In our country you are able to have an abortion, but in another country you cannot. You can only have crime where there is a law saying it is a crime.
I found a news story about how the law saying Abortion is legal will turn 40 years old this week. In this article there are some women who speak about how they wish they had not aborted their children and speak about the consequences of aborting their child.
According to Conflict Theory we as a country will always have conflicting feelings about abortion. Is it wrong or is it right? The ones who can convince the correct people will determine if it is legal or illegal.
What caught my eye in this story is a new “study”, that they did not cite, that shows there are more abortions when it is illegal than when it is legal. That seems concerning to me, well either way it is concerning. I personally know friends who are not able to have children and I know they would love to have a child instead of seeing them aborted.
What are you thoughts about this “study” that the news forgot to leave out?
