They lead, however, to a severe suppression of the immune system\'s ability to resist harmful organisms. This leaves the body open to invasion by various infections, which are therefor

Abortion Abortion The right to have an abortion is a woman\'s right not to have a conceived child. According to Compton\'s Encyclopedia, an abortion is the loss of a fetus before it is able to live outside the womb (1). Induced abortion is regarded as a moral issue in some cultures, but to others it is seen as an acceptable way to end an unplanned pregnancy. In the Supreme Court case of Roe vs. Wade (1973) women of the United States have been granted the right to have abortions (Sutton, 1). Ma

Blatantly sexist laws and practices are slowly being eliminated while social perceptions of women\'s roles continue to stagnate and even degrade back to traditional ideals. It is these social perceptions that challenge the evolution of women as equal on all levels. In this study, I will argu

Pro-life supporters want abortion to be illegal and not performed anywhere. Pro-choice supporters want the choice to be up to the woman and no one else.

Induced abortions are intentionally brought on, either because a pregnancy is unwanted or presents a risk to

It was spurred by a backlash against the women\'s rights movement that reflected anxieties about women deserting their conventional position as mothers, and by professionalizing physicians eager to restrict their competition from irregular practitioners, many of them offering abortion services. Then in 1873 all birth-control information was specifically included withi
