Abortion

An abortion is the killing of an unborn baby.  This occurs when a woman gets pregnant and does not want the kid.  Abortion is a very controvercial topic due to the differing beliefs of culture and religion.  Over 600,000 abortions are performed a year which leads to a lot of debate on whether its the mothers choice to have an abortion. Christians and others believe that humans have inherent dignity which means that they have the right to life.  

Laws have been passed that allow abortion only until a certain amount of time into the pregnancy.  This is a means of compromise but is still frowned upon by those who believe in the inherent dignity.  

I think that abortion should only be allowed on certain terms because sometimes it’s not the womens fault and in those cases there’s not really much you can do if she didn’t intend to have a child in the first place.  I think it’s not something that should be accessible easily and shouldn’t happen as much as it does.
