This paper attempts to determine the moral and ethical actions of abortion through the analysis of the experiences of different women who have undergone abortions. These women were willing to discuss their thought processes about the abortion and what led them to the decision and their experiences were recorded so as to introduce a documented group. This paper discusses the method, sampling, data collection, and data analysis used and findings. It concludes that there is no one right answer to any moral question and there is also no clear connection between abortion and one's social/economic status.

From the Paper:

"When asking the question 'is abortion right or wrong', clearly, an individual's moral standard is as it relates to his own existence. It is not expected that an aboriginal comprehend the concept of American ethics when he still utilizes wooden sticks as eating utensils. Similarly, one cannot believe that just because a certain ethical code is respected in one area of the world that it is the only code worth respecting. Indeed, everything is relative to each individual's own existence, including what is required for that individual's own survival."
