One of the most controversial issues that affect the entire world, especially women is abortion. This is the killing of a fetus or an embryo in the womb of a woman. The effect that the word abortion has on this world is incredible. It put fear in some people heart and nothing in others. Pro choicer are 45% of society and are all for abortions, 40% are pro-lifers and are against abortions and 15% are neutral, there go with the flow. The pro-lifers and pro-choicer are constantly in a debate about who is right or wrong when it comes to dealing with abortions. Surveys and interviews were done on the feelings and thoughts about abortion, who should make the decision about it, and the effects that it has on society past, present and the future. The results shows that majority of the people don\'t seem to care much about it because it hasn\'t affected them greatly. Overall, abortion is a serious issue and it will effect everyone in the future.

Abortion is an issue that evokes, on all sides, very strong feelings, judgments and very heated discussions. It deals with human interactions where ethics, emotions and law come together.
In the past few decades, abortion issue has been brought into sharper focus and has been debated. "A number of factors are responsible for this but the major one has been that associated with the sexual revolution which accentuates freedom in all matters sexual and in spite of or even because of the tremendous and indiscriminate increase in the distribution of contraceptives."(Dr. Stephen Schwarz).
Abortion poses a moral, social and medical dilemma that faces many individuals to create an emotional and violent atmosphere. It has cause various debate between the pro-choicer and the pro-lifers on daily basics. It is an issue that has affected mainly women and children in the past, present and will continue to have an effect in the future.
Abortion is a subject that neither has a right or wrong answer. It is a matter of personal opinion, morals and values. The issue of abortions has also taken a toll on the justice system. Several people went to court to fight for their right to be able to have abortions, instead of killing themselves by have illegal abortions.

Abortion has joined racism and war as one of the most debatable subject of controversy. Many people want to be able to decide the destiny of others. Everyone in the United State is covered under the United States constitution, and under the 14th Amendment women have been given the choice of abortion. In 1973, Harry A. Blackmun wrote the majority opinion that it\'s a women\'s right to have an abortion. Roe v. Wade legalized abortion. Even though these women have been given the right, the case is not closed. There are many points of views toward abortion but the only two that are distinct are "pro-life" and "pro-choice."
My concern in this research paper is to examine the extent to which arguments used by both sides of this debate are valid, and report on my interviews. The common acceptance of bad reasoning as self-evident always serves to down play the opposition and to further rationalize and irrationalize the whole debate.
While I\'m personally in the pro-choice arena, I was very disappointed in learning about some the incidents and bad arguments that go on between the pro-life and pro-choice activist. The heated rhetoric argument isn\'t any help in reaching a political or decision on the issue of abortion.
Pro-life activists carry a strong argument. They feel so strongly about these beliefs that violence has broken out in many known instances. Their argument is based solely on the fact that human life starts with conception. Their view is that there is no natural point of division in the life of a person between the fertilization of the egg and the point of the viability of a fetus to survive outside the womb, let alone birth. That abortion results in the intentional death of the unborn entity. Therefore, abortion can be defined as the intentional killing of a human being.
Pro-lifer also feel that abortions shouldn\'t be legal because of responsibility. They feel that in our society today abortion is becoming the careless solution. One thing that
