Although abortions have become more and more common throughout the United States, the morality of abortion as a whole is still an issue for Americans. There are strong beliefs on both sides of this matter, and both sides never seem to come into agreement with one another. On one hand, pro-choice advocates believe women should have a right to do with their body what they please. On the other hand, pro-life advocates believe abortion is the killing of a living human being who deserves to have a voice even though they are not born yet. That being said abortion is a moral problem because it is the physical act of murder done unto a member of our very own species. Not to mention, the only people who are pro-abortion have already been born.
