Abortion is often a sensitive topic to discuss. It is one of the most divisive issues facing our nation today. However, it is necessary to understand all sides of the topic in order to formulate a thoughtful personal opinion. Pro-choice and Pro-life both have very convincing arguments about abortion. 

People who are pro-choice believe that women have the human right to choose if they want to keep the baby or not. They believe that it is no one else’s choice and should be decided by the woman who is pregnant. They believe that is the woman’s decision when and if they want to have a baby. “Reproductive rights are essential for achieving gender equality”. They believe that “everyone should decide if, when, and who they want to have a baby with.”

People who are pro-life  means that they oppose abortion no matter what circumstance it is. They believe that “letting the baby be born is the only choice.” “Abortion is intentionally killing a human being.” This innocent human being does not even have the choice if they want to live or die. The fetus is considered a human and killing a human is wrong. The baby has a fundamental right to life and it needs to be protected, not taken away from them.
