Being For and Against Abortion

There are many topics that most people are for and against which is I guess a normal reaction to some things. One of the most controversial topics would be abortion.

It just like politics for some people they can’t be just democratic or just be republican, they believe in different topics from each party. Being on this line of being for and against an issue is kind of confusing, especially when the issue is abortion.
