The Controversy Over Abortion One of the most controversial topics over the years, and still today, is abortion. Is abortion murder or not? When does a fetus become a human? There are no answers to these questions. Everyone individual has their own beliefs on whether or not abortion is justifiable. Abortions have been performed throughout many of centuries. Recently, there has been a number of court cases that has changed the legality of abortions, especially in the United States, for example Roe v. Wade. Even religions have changed their views on abortions over the course of the years. In the abortions wars there are two parties, pro-life and pro-choice. Pro-life believes that abortion is murder and is completely immoral. Pro-choice,
Abortion can and most likely will cause severe pain for the fetus and the mother.
An Argument Against Abortion Abortion is a serious topic that people have been debating about for years. Everywhere you turn the topic of abortion presents itself, on TV, in the newspapers, in books and magazines. It already has, and will continue to cause, controversy for years to come. As long as abortion remains legal, pro-life advocates will continue to protest what they believe to be these horrible acts of murder.
Instead of abortion, consider adoption. Nowadays many couples suffer because they want to have kids but are having trouble trying to conceive. Abortion inflicts suffering on the unborn child because childhood begins at conception not at birth; therefore, abortion is the killing of an innocent human being. Instead of
The topic of abortion is a hot subject among the people of America today. Some say yes, women should be able to have abortions no matter if the fetus is in the first trimester or well in to the second trimester of gestation. On the other hand the other people say that it is murder of a child no matter the stage of development. Many of the people that believe that the fertilized ovum is a human and has a soul at the conception are the pro-life people. They believe this because of their religious beliefs and cannot scientifically prove this in any way.
One reason why abortion is wrong is because there are many other safer solutions. In the article, Why Do More People Choose Abortion Over Adoption?, Kristi Burton Brown stated: “In the USA, there are approximately two million infertile couples waiting to adopt, many times regardless of the child’s medical problems such as Down Syndrome, Spina Bifida, HIV infection or terminally ill. Dr. Brad Imler, President of America’s Pregnancy Helpline, confirms the challenge of waiting couples by stating: Only 1% of the Helpline’s annual 40,000 clients inquires about adoption.” Putting him/her up for adoption will give them a better chance at a happier life rather than abortion. The solution for a baby should not be death. If it was for a selfish solution, you're sacrificing a life many other families would love to raise as their own.
Abortion, on the other hand, does not give the mother the luxury of being able to change her mind. Once the procedure is performed there is no turning back and many women will regret their decision. This can lead to depression, and feelings of guilt. The State of Oklahoma has laws in place that force the pregnant mother to have an ultrasound so that she hears the unborn child’s heartbeat. She must then wait a certain amount of days to make her final and possibly life-ending decision. The State of Oklahoma does not do this solely because of its position in the Bible belt. The state firmly believes that this gives the pregnant woman a crucial opportunity to make a fully informed decision that will hopefully evoke a feeling of love for her unborn child and help her to celebrate the life form that it is. Its morally the right thing to do is to keep your unborn child.
I believe this is wrong in so many ways. The only time you should get an abortion is if you really need it.

PRO-CHOICE ON ABORTION What do you think about when you hear the word abortion? According to dictionary.com Abortion is the removal of an embryo or fetus from the uterus in order to end a pregnancy and also any of various surgical methods for terminating a pregnancy, especially during the first six months. Abortion it’s a decision a woman has the right to make. No government should have the right to dictate what happens to the woman’s body.

A long on-going subject that has been greatly debated in our society is abortion. Many people argue that because the baby in the mother’s womb is not alive, aborting him or her is not considered a murder. However, others say that as the baby’s heart and brain are the first things to develop, the baby is technically alive and killing it would be a murder. As soon as the baby has a heartbeat, it has life. Abortion has many characteristics of a murder, including the killing of one human being by another, it’s unethical, and it is done without the consent of the person.
