Abortion History According to Google, abortion is derived from the latin root aboriri or abortio, meaning to miscarry, and is defined as ending a pregnancy by the removal from the uterus of a fetus or embryo before viability. Abortion techniques developed as early as 1500 BC when an Egyptian doctor suggested the idea of an induced abortion. Because abortion is the removing of a human embryo, abortion is considered homicide. As early as the 13th century, abortion has been treated like a crime, punishable by hanging. Well into the 19th century abortion remained an offense because you are killing off an innocent embryo that is the cause of certain actions you decide to partake in.

The people that are for abortion may say every woman has a choice whether or whether not to have an abortion. Abortion should be legal because it reduces the crime rate and makes it safer for women. (Donohue, John) Abortion should be legal because if a woman is sexually abused by their husband, a family member, or even by a stranger, she may or may not want to live with what her sexual abuser has done to her.
