I. Introduction A. Abortion is the termination of a pregnancy either spontaneously through a miscarriage or purposely through an induced abortion. Induced abortions can take place in a variety of ways. Most induced abortions are done early on in the pregnancy by taking Mifepristone or Misoprostol. Abortions done in the later stages of pregnancy, also known as partial-birth abortions, involves puncturing a hole at the base of the baby’s skull, inserting a catheter to remove the baby’s brain thus collapsing the skull. Induced abortion has since been the topic of a heated debate on its morality. With every debate, there are two sides to the abortion issue; the pro-life side and the pro-choice side. Those who are on the pro-life side believe that the unborn fetus is a human and has rights, thus making abortion murder. Those on the pro-choice side believe that women have reproductive rights which allows them to choose whether or not they want to carry a baby to full term. B. Tentative Thesis: Abortion’s legality in the United States has gone back and forth over time with Roe v. Wade making it legal. With the recent Presidential election and newly elected Donald Trump, who’s beliefs are opposite from the ruling in Roe v. Wade , America could see some changes in abortion laws in the next four years.
