When the Supreme Court ruled in 1973, that autonomous abortion rights are written into the Constitution, it gave all the mothers the right to decide whether she wanted to proceed with an abortion, for any reason at all.

The percentage of infants being put up for adoption has decreased from 90,000 in 1971 to 18,000 in 2007.

In today’s culture, a main topic of controversy is abortion. Abortion has been around since the late 1800s and has become more popular through the years. There are two sides that associate with abortion, pro-life and pro-choice. These two sides show women the reasons they should or should not have abortions. Because of abortions, the debate between the pro-choice and pro-life advocates has progressed in the sense of intensity and has affected many women in this generation.
