Abortion has been a very controversial issue in the United States for the past several decades. Many people think that is it morally wrong. To say that something is morally wrong is an opinion. Since everyone’s opinions are different on this topic there have been many court cases and protests against abortion. However there are a lot of people out there that believe that abortion is a rightful decision. My personal opinion on the abortion controversy is that every woman should have the choice on whether or not they are ready or are capable of raising a baby. Although there are many different choices one can make with regard to whether or not they are ready to raise a child, like adoption, it is still ultimately the woman’s decision on what they want to do. Carrying a child is a very stressful and sometimes painful process. There are a lot of financial decisions, health decisions, and future decisions that have to be carefully thought out before becoming a parent. Parenthood is a life-altering step one must take in life, and abortion is one way that a women can postpone or avoid changing their life in a very extreme way.
Abortion is a common debated topic in the United States. It is becoming commonplace in our society. Terminating an unwanted pregnancy is a difficult choice that many women have faced throughout the years.

While there is still more research being done, it is said that abortion can have both negative and positive effects.
One of the major controversial issues confronting the society today is abortion. I choose abortion as the topic of discussion since it contradicts my values and beliefs. Abortion is the extraction of the human fetus from the mother's womb with an intention to end the life of that fetus prior to its natural birth. The controversy surrounding abortion is whether it should be legalized or not? In my opinion, abortion is morally and ethically wrong because it leads to violation of human rights. Life is precious and only it's Creator has the right to take it away. I chose this issue for discussion to bring to light many of the hidden facts and arguments, of which people are unaware and not very sensitive
One of the most frequently debated topics in bioethics is the morality of abortion, or the ending of a pregnancy without physically giving birth to an infant. Often times abortions are categorized into either spontaneous, a natural miscarriage; induced or intentional, which is premeditated and for any reason; or therapeutic, which albeit intentional, its sole purpose is to save the mother’s life. It seems however that moral conflicts on issue mainly arise when discussing induced abortions. In general, people universally agree it is morally wrong to kill an innocent person and in some people’s eyes induced abortions are the intentional killings of innocent persons, thus making them immoral. However not all individuals view fetuses as persons and consequentially argue it is not morally wrong to kill them.
One of the most contentious issues in America, abortion, is still discussed on a daily basis. Women should be able to make their own decision with their bodies because it involves their bodies, health, and futures. Conversely, one of America’s presidential candidates wants to repeal Roe v. Wade, which allows women to make their own intimate decision. In one of his recent speeches, Donald Trump states that women who seek abortion should be subject to “some form of punishment” (Flegenheimer, et al.). Trump was highly criticized for making this statement, but he continued to mention that ripping a baby out of the womb on the last day of pregnancy is immoral. Trump seems to misunderstand that most abortions happen during the first trimester of

Abortion is, and will stay, a ubiquitous topic of discussion. This medical procedure is performed when a woman has reasons to terminate a baby within the first 24 weeks of pregnancy. Currently, abortion is legal in the US, but in other countries such as Ireland, Poland, and Brazil, abortion has many regulations and only allow the procedure if the woman’s life is at risk. There are pro-life individuals and pro-choice ones. As a pro-choice supporter myself, I understand that banning abortion will put millions of babies, women, and families at physical, emotional, and financial risk. I believe abortion should stay legal because they are safe, they protect most women from financial disadvantages, and in oodles of cases, abortion is necessary.
The controversial topic known as abortion has been around for centuries. The matter has been forever the women’s choice. However, the arguments continue on whether abortion should be pro-choice or not. Abortion should no longer be a scapegoat for women and instead should not exist at all. Women should take responsibility for their actions and face the consequences, killing an unborn child due to the fact “it was a mistake” is no excuse.
Abortion is a controversial issue due to the involvement and impact on an unborn child. To help persuade undecided opinions, individuals have coined the terms pro-choice and pro-life. Pro-choice fights for the woman’s freedom and right to decide the outcome of the unborn child while pro-life fights for the rights of the unborn child. During protests, pro-choice supporters carry coat hangers to give emphasis to the deaths of many women who “undergo unsafe, illegal abortions” (Is Abortion Right? What's Involved in This Explosive Issue) while pro-life supporters carry containers with aborted fetuses as “a grim reminder of millions of unborn dead” (Is Abortion Right? What's Involved in This Explosive Issue). Both sides have strong opinions that

People that are “Pro- Life” think it is wrong. Abortion should be legal in America because i is a woman's constitutional right to be in control of her body. . If you have a legal abortion, you reduce the chance of injury and death than if you have an illegal abortion.
A man by the name of Jean Paul Sartre once said “We are our choices”, but what if one’s choice is predetermined or determined by someone else? What are our choices then? What determines a choice to be right? These are questions that arise as a result of the term ‘choice’. Throughout history there have been a number of choices that people have had to make, one of which deals with the topic of abortion and how different cultures perceive them in contrast to others. According to Merriam Webster, Abortion is defined as the termination of a pregnancy followed by the death of the embryo or fetus. This essay will introduce and identify Abortion in terms of its controversy in its morality, differences in ethical cultures, and the views of past societies versus the present.
During the 20th century, there were a great number of high profile, controversial Supreme Court cases. From Brown v. Board of Education to Employment Division, Department of Human Resources of Oregon v. Smith, no case stands out as much as Roe v. Wade. Roe v. Wade covered grounds that have never been dealt with before, bringing new issues and debates to the table, such as the right to privacy.
For my final paper I have decided to do a on the ethical and controversial issue of abortion. In this report I will cover both sides of the abortion issue.

Abortion is defined in several ways all of which stop a pregnancy. There are different ways of abortion, which are spontaneous abortion, surgical abortion, and medical abortion. Abortion has been arguable topic for decades. One can neither believe abortion to be good nor bad. The idea of individuality and human life is not quite the same.
