The paper argues that abortion rights should be absolutely preserved on three major grounds: first, because statistics and data show that banning abortion does not work; second, because banning abortion necessarily leads to swarms of illegal and unsafe clandestine procedures; and third, because the right to choose is a fundamental human right. The writer concludes the United States should fight as hard as possible to prevent anti-abortion activists from reversing Roe v. Wade, a process that is already underway.

From the Paper:

"The health care problems associated with clandestine abortions have economic as well as human repercussions because of the increased overall burden on the health care system from botched abortions. Paxman, Rizo, Brown & Benson (1993) note that clandestine abortions are a leading cause of death among women throughout the world, and that one out of between three and five unsafe abortions lead to hospitalization. Kulczycki, Potts & Rosenfield (1996) found that unsafe abortions lead to about 100,000 deaths per year and that two out of every ten maternal deaths are caused by unsafe abortions; most of the victims of unsafe abortions are in poor developing nations. However, if the United States makes abortion illegal it too could see a steep rise in maternal deaths and hospitalizations due to botched clandestine abortions."
