In this letter to the Holland Sentinel from Madison VanEk, Madison believes abortion should be illegal. She believes that just because you don't want a child or that you aren't ready to be a mother doesn't mean you should end their life. You should give them up for adoption if that's the way you feel, not killing your unborn child. VanEk states that research shows that the fetus will feel a significant amount of pain after weeks. Why would you ever want to do that to a little, innocent baby? She knows that even if abortion becomes illegal, a woman will still try and find ways to end their child's life, but that shouldn't stop us from doing what we can to help end abortion.

In this article, the author, Sharon Smith, believes that every woman should have the right to chose what they do with their bodies.

So many socialist believe that woman should the right to decide what happens to their unborn child, without anyone say. Next, Smith says that abortion is a class issue. Regarding the abortion debate, "all woman don't suffer equally". A wealthy woman will always have abortion as an option, even if it becomes illegal.
