The issue of abortion in America is exactly why history remains a relevant topic to understand and educate oneself about. Any United States citizen born as far back as Generation Xers could be unfamiliar with the ongoing issue of the woman's body. Because let's face it, that's what is up for ruling. I am a Christian and was raised a Christian. So there is the topic of life...but legislation that addresses abortion is about more than life, but about a woman's right to choose. And God grants us free-will...even if our choices don't please Him.
Here we are again, roughly fifty years later. Take a look at a clear explanation of Roe versus Wade.
