As any social issue, abortions are one of the many topics that everyone seems to have an opinion on. According to the 2012 Merriam-Webster dictionary, an abortion is, “the termination of a pregnancy after, accompanied by, resulting in, or closely followed by the death of the embryo or fetus as a spontaneous expulsion of a human fetus during the first 12 weeks of gestation--miscarriage, the induced expulsion of a human fetus, or the expulsion of a fetus by a domestic animal often due to infection at any time before completion of pregnancy.” (Elliot) Abortions; like every controversial issue, will most likely never be agreed upon by the human race. In the midst of the controversy, two groups have arose. Throughout the journey of controversy, two different groups have surfaced. Pro-life, and Pro-choice. Pro-life members claim that the life of a child begins immediately at conception, meaning one thing, abortion is murder. Pro-life members insist that life is a valuable gift and not a choice. The life of an unborn child is no different than the mothers in the sense that both have the same rights. On the other hand, Pro-choice supporters claim that a woman has the right to do whatever she wants with her body. Pro-choice supporters believe that no religion should play a role in a woman’s decision. Looking at the bigger picture, what is the difference in putting a bullet in someone’s head and killing an unborn child? Abortion is wrong in every way, and should be illegal.
