This paper presents all the classic arguments for and against abortion. It looks at the opinions of pro-life activists stating that an abortion is the equivalent of killing a baby, while on the other hand there are those who argue that a woman's body is hers to do with what she pleases. Religious arguments are mentioned, such as that only God has the right to take life. The writer also cites moral grounds such as cases of poverty, abuse or rape, when the woman does not want to have the child

From the Paper:

"Abortion is one of the most heated debates in both the political and social arena. "Abortion" refers to any premature expulsion of a human fetus, whether naturally spontaneous, as in a miscarriage, or artificially induced, as in a surgical or chemical abortion. (NRLC Educational Trust Fund pamphlet, 1996). Before the Supreme Court ruling in 1973 in the Roe v. Wade case abortion was considered illegal in United States. Under Roe vs. Wade, in 1973 in United States abortion was made legal. The Supreme Court made abortions legal in all 50 states during all nine months of pregnancy, which could be for medical, social or any other reason. When abortion was made legal it received the approval of society and along with that clinics sprang up everywhere, with information being provided everywhere about places of abortion providers."
