Abortion is the ending of pregnancy by removing an embryo or foetus before it can survive outside the uterus. Abortion may occur spontaneously, in which case it is called miscarriage, or it may cause deliberately and is called an induced or procured abortion.
The practice of abortion and the termination of pregnancy has been known since the days of our ancestor .Different method have been used to perform an abortion, including abortifacient herbs, also the use of sharpened implements, the method of abdominal pressure, and other technique.
Abortion is a very sensitive issue, many people are debating whether to legalise or not to legalised, other feels like parents have the right to choose and it is not murder until the baby is born. People who think it is bad say that the foetus is something alive, a human being who is partly formed and to do abortion is to kill it and commit murder , people who think it is ok say that it is not murder until the child is born. Abortion has become one of the most widely debated issues throughout the world. On one side are pro-choice supporters, individuals who favour a woman’s reproductive rights, including the right to choose to have an abortion, On the other side are the pro-life advocates, individuals who may oppose abortion for any reason and only accept abortion in extreme circumstances, as when the mother’s life would be threatened by carrying a pregnancy in term of medical condition.
The pro-choice supporter who believed that the foetus has no legal rights, the right belongs to the mother who carrying the foetus and can decide whether to bring pregnancy to full term or end it by aborting the foetus, and on the other end the pro-life advocate supporter who believed that the foetus is a human being from the time of conception and it has the right to life, between these great stance of argument there lies a religious, ethical, social, and political views with different aspects. Different variety of argument have been made on both sides of the abortion, but there was no compromise has ever been reached because most pro-choice and pro-life have different views about the status of foetus.
