Not legalizing abortion only benefits the people who dont believe in abortions and also restricts a woman from having control of her body.

The U.S. Government does a fairly good job with protecting it's citizens and constitutional laws. When a person commits a felony, that person has the write to speak freely and be treated to a fair trial, seemingly abortion should be looked at in the same view.
