One of the hottest topics of discussion is the subject of abortion. This is an issue that many people have strong opinions on. The two main sides of the debate are pro-life and pro-choice.
Pro-life defenders feel that once started a pregnancy should not be terminated. According to this article the pro-life campaign is pushing toward a more powerful name to get their point across. This new name is anti-abortion or abortion abolitionist.
Pro-choice on the other hand believes that our government should not make the decision for a woman. An opinion article from Jill Anderson shows that the pro-choice angle pushes that the decision to end a pregnancy is up to the woman herself, not the government. Pro-choice also believes that this is a religious issue and that there should consistently be a separation of church and state.
This debate has split our country practically down the middle and it seems as though everyone has a strong opinion on the matter. There is huge pressure from both ends on having governmental laws on the issue. The big debate is whether this is truly a murder or strictly religious belief?
