Abortion should not be a legal means of contraception because it extinguishes human life. I value human life and think it should be protected. Roe v. Wade made abortion legal in this country in a decision by the courts. This gave up the state's individual rights to decide this question for themselves. Roe v. Wade should be overturned. However, this is a considerable task at hand since the courts made the decision and must reverse it. In the mean time, we must limit within the powers of the law the amount of abortions going on in this country to as few as possible.
