Freedom of Choice

Definition - What does Freedom of Choice mean?

Freedom of choice refers to a person's legal ability to exercise their freedoms as long as they do not interfere with the freedoms of another.

Freedom of choice also refers to a woman's right to choose whether or not she would like to have an abortion prior to fetal viability.

Justipedia explains Freedom of Choice

The Freedom of Choice Act is the American law that grants women the right of choice when it comes to having a child. So, women in America who get pregnant are not forced by law to have the child.

This is a hotly debated topic in the nation because abortion involves the termination of a fetus, which would otherwise eventually grow into a living person.

This law could change one day, as many Republicans are against it.
