The Abortion Debate

It is a common belief that every women should have the right to a safe abortion, this is included in that everyone has the right to the highest attainable standard of physical and mental health, including access to all medical services. Access to safe abortion and legalization of abortion can prevent unnecessary suffering and death of women. To deny them this would to be completely ignoring one of the most important human rights. The actions aforementioned in the previous paragraph also pose a breach in this human right as well as a breach in Article 12 of the UDHR which grants a right to freedom from any interference with both privacy and family. Many protesters of abortion, such as those who deliberately seek out who they know that have had abortions in order to harass them, are in a strong breach of this right and are also breaking the law.
Abortion is the the deliberate termination of a human pregnancy, most often performed during the first 28 weeks. It is an ancient techniques that used to be done in secret and was considered very taboo. As women's rights have progressed, abortions have become safer and more accessible but people still didn’t openly share their abortion experiences. However, people have become more comfortable talking about abortion in a general sense. Abortion is now one of the most openly debated and controversial topics in our society.
