The coexistence of opposite and conflicting feelings about abortion is centuries old Disagreements between public policy morality and individual behavior on this issue existed even at the time of Plato and Aristotle In the past few decades abortion issue has been brought into sharper focus and has been vigorously debated A number of factors are responsible for this but perhaps 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 Judges have ruled politicians have legislated but the controversy on this issue is still shaking our society Since the late 1960s abortion has been shifting from a predominantly illegitimate status toward a more legitimate one Several cases have been fought for the right to choose Many of these have been hard cases with very personal feelings but the perseverance showed through and gives us the rights we have today Most arguments against granting women the right to abortion are based on religious and moral prohibitions defending the sanctity of human life Opponents of abortion rely on the premise that the fetus is a human being a person from the moment of conception Anti- abortionist proclaim that they are pro-life However they spend so much time establishing that the fetus is a person and therefore has a right to live that they forget about mothers rights or simply ignore her existence The word murder is often used by pro-lifers to describe abortion Murder means deliberate and unjustified killing of another person containing intent How can anybody see an evil intent in a womans decision to interrupt pregnancy if it is a result of rape or incest A woman cannot bear the thought of having a child that would be a constant reminder of what had happened on such and such a day such and such number of years ago
