Many people around the world believe that abortion is an unjust act against life. However many people disagree with this, and they believe that abortion is a choice that is up to the women involved. In this part the argument for and against abortion shall be displayed.
Often a person’s views on abortion depend on when they believe life begins. Some people believe that life begins at birth while others believe that life begins at other stages during the pregnancy, for example when the foetus’s heart begins to beat. Moreover, if a person believes life begins at birth then abortion is not a moral issue because the foetus is technically not a life. According to Christians, God gave you a life and getting rid of it would be going against God’s act of life.
