30th March, 2015 'Abortion' When we hear abortion some may think murder and other may think individual rights. The big argument is life and death. Personally I think it is the woman's right I choose, especially if that woman is in a straineous situation. Abortion is defined as the 'removal of the embryo or fetus from the uterus in order to end a pregnancy' (Dictionary.com) The problem we are facing with abortion is it is either illegal or restrictions are applied to them in certain states due to personal beliefs, experiences and so on.

Or would you want to give birth to a child who is extremely sick, whose life spam is until the age of two? Changing public awareness is an alternative. Would you want someone to take away your rights to vote just because they don't see you fit to make a decision like that? These are the question you should think of.
