A fetus becomes a citizen, recognized by the state, at birth. But even though the child is not a citizen while in the womb it still has rights, such as at 8 months the fetus has the right to life if the mother has not yet acted to get an abortion. So in this case the rights of the mother still outweigh the rights of the fetus because the mother is considered a citizen and has been for longer than the citizen. The woman’s rights are greater because even though the fetus has the potential for a future, there is no saying that the child would benefit mankind, and with a mother who would like to get an abortion, it is not likely that the child would be raised well.
The state will not allow abortions in certain cases because of different specific reasons. Firstly, if the woman’s decision to get an abortion is later than 8 months into the pregnancy, the service shall not be granted. Secondly, if the father of the fetus would like to keep the child and is in good standing to care for the child, the abortion shall not be granted to the woman, but she has no responsibilities tied to the child after birth. And Thirdly, if the fetus shows clear signs of being a child prodigy, it shall be considered a valuable human to society, and the abortion will not be granted to the woman. Also the fetus is considered a complete citizen of the United States as soon as it shows its sign of being a prodigy.
Even though at some point the fetus is considered a citizen with rights, there have been many time in the history of the United States where the rights of citizens have not been properly recognized or guaranteed. Because of this the woman’s rights shall be recognized and the fetuses will not be because one of the so called citizens have to make a sacrifice, and because the mother is more valuable at the time of pregnancy, and most women have logical reasons for wanting abortion that right shall be granted to her. The states role is to provide, regulate, and make decisions, on the topic of abortion.
