Uncertain times for abortion as clinics close, new law nears

Week #2
Article #3

1.     Category of problem: Health
2.     Level of problem: Texas State
3.     This article concerns: Abortion laws becoming stricter
4.     Importance/effect on families/individuals: In the state of Texas, abortion laws have been changing over the past months, these laws are becoming less flexible and are about to be enforced.

My input: In this article, abortion laws are said to be enforced strictly throughout Texas, as they have closed down four clinics and perhaps more clinics will be closing down very soon. These new laws will be enforced in six weeks and it will affect many individuals, depending on their circumstances. Even though, Perry thinks he is doing the right thing by prohibiting abortion in the state of Texas, many individuals do not perceive it in a positive manner since many women could face a bad situation and many clinics are being forced to close and jobs are being lost. Being so close for these laws to be enforced we can only hope for the best and for these politicians to understand what women have to go through when faced with these situations.

  1. I think this is outrageous! Perry is not doing the right thing by prohibiting abortion in Texas. I agree that it is wrong to just wanna abort because you simply don't want to have a kid right now because everyone should be responsible for their actions. But, I do think that everyone should have a choice to do what they want to do for themselves. Many women are in no condition to raise a child for many reasons and don't want to bring up a child in this world when the parent is struggling themselves. I think as an American is should be our right to choose what we want to do with our situations and it shouldn't be up to the government to tell us we aren't allowed to abort because they don't understand the situation women have to go through sometimes. It is disappointing to me that I live in a state that they are already closing down clinics and are projected to be closing more. I hope that before these laws are enforced that they think about this a little more and make take in to consideration the individuals opinions because it is us that is it affecting the most.
