There should also be a limit on the number of abortions a woman has because abortion should not be used as a form of birth control. Abortion should only be legal in the first term of pregnancy and should remain the mothers choice.
What is Abortion?
Abortion is a procedure used to end a pregnancy. It involves using medicine or surgery to remove the embryo or fetus and placenta from the uterus.
What are the Abortion laws?
In 1973 the U.S. court decided that, a woman and her doctor may freely decide to terminate a pregnancy during the first trimester, anywhere in the U.S.
What Can States do?
The state governments are only able to restrict abortion access after the first trimester with laws intended to protect the woman's health.
Abortions after fetal viability are available but only if the woman's health or life are at risk and state governments can prohibit other abortions.

Most Common types of Abortion
Methotexate which stops the ongoing process of implantation in the early stages if pregnancy.
Mifepristone which blocks the hormone progesterone, which causes the lining of the uterus to break down and end the pregnancy.
The third type of abortion is when the baby is surgically removed from the mother and suffocates, because the child's lungs aren't developed.
Salt Brine Abortion
The fourth type of abortion is the Salt Brine technique. this is when the unborn child is "pickled" to death by a strong salt solution. A few days after the injection the child is still born.
There are four different ways of abortion the first type is the suction type.This is when the unborn child is actually vacuumed from the mother's womb during the early stages of pregnancy.
