One of the most controversial subjects in the news is abortions. Conservatives and liberals debate whether women should be allowed to obtain abortions, neither side budging on the issue. In this battle, health care services are cut and reproductive rights are denied. The state is attempting to take away our rights as men and women to determine the timing, spacing, and number of our children. The political fight over abortion leaves the American people, especially low-income women, as the victims. However, there should not be a fight about abortions, but rather a collective effort to target the real problem: unwanted pregnancies. Democrats and Republicans could work together to increase education, access to birth control, and health care services to prevent the inexcusable number of unwanted pregnancies in America.
