Abortion is a voluminous topic today all around the world. Differing viewpoints on abortion are recognized in politics, religion, and throughout the general population. There is a small amount of people who are nonchalant on the subject. Women have abortions for many different reasons and according to certain groups these reasons are either justified or not. Everyone tends to have their own articulated opinion, and many vocalize tenaciously what they believe.
In conclusion, the issue of abortion continues to be discussed, debated, and even unfortunately, blow out of proportion. In hopes of settling this controversial issue, I've given my knowledge and beliefs on the matter. Getting across my main points, that it is the women's right to choose if she wants to have an abortion, and that Pro-life imply a lot of misimpressions to society which are untrue.
Every individual will have their own opinion on the matter, as their lives, culture, and religion have shaped their view. While the debate about abortion has created divisions between people in society, it has two major groups, those who are Pro-Life and Pro-Choice. In this paper, I will examine both groups in depth and their strong positions on abortion. Before I get more into the subject of abortion, you must first understand what exactly abortion is, and how it is defined. An abortion is a procedure to end pregnancy.
Abortion is a very controversial topic as it always has been all around the country but more specifically in the United States. There are two sides to the debate: those who believe abortion should be legal and their organization is known as pro-choice. On the other side, there are the group of people who believe that abortion should not be legal and reverse the laws from what they are today this organization is known as pro-life. It seems as though both of the organizations are very extreme, while there can be some people who a neutral and believe in some ideas from the prochoice, yet they also agree with some of the ideas from prolife. The two sides to the debate on abortion are known as pro-choice and pro-life although, this topic is very controversial, today there are a history of abortion laws and a very important case known as Roe vs. Wade which played a huge role in determining what laws on abortion are in the present.
The application of the critical thinking process on arguments by both sides demonstrates that the natural intellectual conclusion on abortion is the pro-life perspective. Arguments on Abortion: The issue of abortion has been characterized by many social and ethical questions that have contributed to the formation of large, contrasting groups. As the main opposing forces on this issue, pro-life supporters and pro-choice advocates have expressed varying opinions and arguments on this issue (Kaur, n.d.).

Abortion is an extremely controversial issue because while some people are completely against it, others believe that a woman should have the right to make her own choice. Abortion is the woman’s right to choose if she’s wants a baby or not. The foundation
Abortion has been a perplexing and controversial debate throughout time. There are many articles and philosophers who state their strong polarized opinions on whether it is ethical to have an abortion. Some people believe that abortion is morally unacceptable and under no circumstances will it ever be acceptable. On the contrary, other people believe that a woman should have the right to choose whether she wants to continue with the pregnancy, especially under certain conditions. In “A Defense of Abortion,” Judith Jarvis Thomson uses real-life analogies to illustrate her key argument that, even assuming a fetus is considered a person from the moment of conception, the mother and the fetus have an equal right to life.
I believe a woman should have the right to choose whether to keep the baby if she knows that she is willing to take up such a huge responsibility. The fundamental issue that Pro-choice focuses on is whether anyone-including the government, the church, and pro-life protesters- can tell a woman what to do with their bodies. Pregnancy carries many obligations, and one will lose many privileges. One of those privileges is the right to pursue happiness. A baby can sometimes disrupt a woman's pursuit of happiness.
The issue of abortion has always been a controversial one for citizens of the United States. Abortion is the practice of terminating a pregnancy after the embryo has been planted in the uterus (Abortion). An individual’s stance on this controversial issue categorizes them into one of two very different groups. An individual who feels that a woman should not have an abortion- due to moral or religious views- is said to be “pro-life”. Coincidently, those who feel that a woman should have the right to choose abortion are said to be “pro-choice”.
The name Pro-Choice is given to those who believe abortion should be legal. One of the main Pro-Choice groups is The National Abortion Campaign. The name Pro-Life is given to opponents of abortion. The two main Pro-Life groups in the UK and Ireland are the Society for the Protection of Unborn Children and LIFE. P ro-Choice believe that it is a woman’s right to decide what to do if she is pregnant and it is involved in promoting its view through writing pro-abortion literature and asking politicians to represent its opinions.
