Aborting a fetus may never be an easy choice but I believe it is in the right of each individual woman to make that informed decision. Personally I have never needed to make this choice. If I was pregnant, I would consider undergoing amniocentesis if the baby was going to be born with severe defects or illnesses, if carrying the fetus would put my own health at serious risk, or if I was in a bad place in my life for a child. Many find the former reason distasteful, but children raised in inadequate environments suffer. Many young women who become pregnant unexpectedly have not finished school or started careers. These women must put everything on hold to care for a child, barring them from upward mobility financially.  According to a study at Princeton University, children raised in poverty are more likely to have lower birthweights, develop learning disabilities, and experience emotional issues than their financially stable peers (https://www.princeton.edu/futureofchildren/publications/docs/07_02_03.pdf). If the parent or parents know that they may be causing raising a child in poor circumstances, they shouldn’t  be forced to see the pregnancy to term. Another argument is our planet and it’s limited resources. Human population is already high and steadily growing. It is predicted that the population will grow 2.7 billion by 2050 (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2781829/ ). More people mean fewer resources, and a lower overall quality of life. 
As a lawmaker I would take many aspects of this hot button topic into consideration. I would not (and do not) agree with aborting based on gender or unwanted (non-harmful) traits. This being said, I would still enable the pregnant individual to make their decision. Parents who undergo pre-natal testing and discover that the fetus tests positive for certain serious conditions may not know that false positives occur (book). I would reform current laws  bring up i know false positives exist,lead to how parents should be well informed and encouraged to take some time to think about it.
as a lawmaker make purely scientific knowledge a must read before agreeing to
