Abortion Is Never Justified

Extracts from this document...


Abortion Is Never Justified Abortion is the termination of a pregnancy, known as 'murdering' of the foetus. Before I go into detail about this issue I will first give my opinion on abortion, and if I feel it is justified. My overall opinion is that abortion is justified.
