Throughout history, abortion has been one of the most controversial topic that researchers and the public never seem to come together on terms of morality and legality. The topic brings up many questions, for example: Is abortion morally justifiable? Does the fetus have any legal rights? Is the fetus a human person? What is considered a person? The legality side of abortion can depend on many factors, such as incest, rape, fetal defects, a high risk of disability, socioeconomic factors or the mother's health being at risk. The morality side of abortion are those who are against abortion because that fetus is a human with the right to life and compare abortion to homicide, while there are those who advocate abortion rights because it is a woman's right to decide about matters concerning her own body.
