Discussion on Abortion.

Extracts from this document...


Abortion Abortion is the death of a baby in the womb, and it's expulsion from the mother's body. It is when the pregnancy is terminated deliberately. The abortion act of 1967 says that a woman can have an abortion if it will cause physical or mental heath problems to the pregnant woman, or the existing children. Also it allows women to have an abortion if the baby is disabled or if the mother's life is at risk. Many Christians oppose abortion. There are many reasons given why they do.
