Legalization of abortion Shall termination of pregnancy be legal? Through the incredible progress in technology and making the machinery such good and cheap, women can terminate their pregnancy without feeling any pain and whether this effect is good or bad, there is a lot of controversial issues about abortion being legal or not. One argument is that, abortion should be made legal within the first trimester of the pregnancy. If abortions were made illegal, then unprotected abortions would become more popular, hereby sets the woman's life at risk. On the other hand, abortions should not be used as a form of birth control.

Also, any abortion should be preformed within the first trimester. This should give both the mother and the father plenty of time to make a decision.
