Why do we need a right to abortion?

A portrait of a young black woman. Her gaze is fixed and a little defiant and indifferent at the same time. She wears a colorful scarf on her head, which is knotted over her forehead. Her hoodie in pink covers her colorful scarf at the back of her head. Over the hoodie in pink she wears another black top. The background is light blue.

I lived on the street and trains from when I was 13 and I saw so many young people running away from sexual abuse in foster homes. It's a bad system that produces broken people. You might as well just be dead. If somebody doesn't want their child, don't make them have it and put them in foster care. That will just create an army of unwanted children living on the street.
