Abortion Has Been One Of This Country\'s Most Controversial Topic

On Hand

Abortion has been one of this country\'s most controversial
topic on hand. But if one sees the constitutional infringement to

of his distress and it establishes a safer and more peaceful
society. On these grounds, abortion should be kept legal, and
