Argumentative Essay on Abortion
Abortion refers to the termination of pregnancy and expulsion of an embryo or a fetus
that is not capable of surviving on its own. It is one of the most controversial topics in today’s
society. It has raised a lot of heated debate from different quarter’s right from religious leaders,

(2009).
Abortion also exposes the woman to a risky procedure that may lead to her death. The
procedure is dangerous and may cause massive bleeding of the mother if done in an undesired
manner or by a quack doctor. Moreover it may result in serious medical complications for the
