Summary
Abortion has been a polarizing issue in the United States since the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that women have the right to abortion in 1973. Opposing Viewpoints: Abortion offers a variety of issues related to abortion under chapter titles that ask questions including: Is Abortion Immoral?, What Has Been the Impact of Roe v. Wade?, Should Abortion Rights Be Restricted?, and What Are Some Medical and Social Concerns About Abortion? The views in this anthology offer different perspectives on these issues and illustrate the high level of social divergence on this controversial issue
