Religions, especially the Christian religion always opposes abortion citing moral reasons whereas sociologists, human right activists and feminists always demand for the legal acceptance of abortion.

While there is no evidence to suggest that the physical event of an abortion has any impact on the mental health of a woman, there are high levels of evidence to the impact it will have from a psychosocial point of view.

There have been a lot of discussions regarding the subject of making abortion legal. Each party has had its own share of arguments and reasons as to why they are on their end of the argument.

Life VS Choice: Abortion as Framed in Media Communications Introduction: Framing the Debate Among the many things people choose to debate about with a lot of passion, abortion is close to the top of the list. In part this is due to its contentious nature, and the fact that people on both sides have strong, and emotionally-caused beliefs in the issue which are hard to change.
