Nearly half of the population bump heads when it comes to the topic, Abortion. Abortion is defined in the Merriam-Webster dictionary as: "the termination of a pregnancy after, accompanied by, resulting in, or closely followed by the death of the embryo or fetus."

To start with, you should have never laid down and had sexual intercourse and became pregnant if you knew you did have the ability to keep the child.

Many will also argue that they have the right to choose what happens to their body. And they also argue that if you are raped and forced to have the child you would have a constant reminder of the horrible act that brought your child into this world. Also in some cases the baby could cause health problems for the mother and could cause the mother to die which would bring the mother to have an abortion to save their own life. Another reason why a mother would seek an abortion is if they find out their child has a disability and they do not want to see the child
