Abortion Coursework Abortion is never justified- do you agree? Yes No Abortion is murder Rape, incest Life is Gods gift, we should not destroy Mother is unable to care for baby. e.g. very young, mental or physical health problems/ We have no right to take a unique life, everyone should have an equal chance to live.
