There are many topics which people in society debate. One of these topics is abortion. The debate on abortion is divided into two; ‘Pro-Life’ and the other, ‘Pro-Choice’.
Those people who are against abortion and want it to be made illegal in the country are supporters of the Pro-Life. Those people who believe that it should be the choice of the mother whether she wants to have the baby or not and no one else should influence her decision are supporters of Pro-Choice. There is no way to tell which is better as both these arguments are based upon what people think as morally right or wrong and it is based on their values to a great extent.
