The Abortion Debate

Understanding the Issues

Series: Issues in Focus Today

By Johannah Haney

As the 2008 presidential election approaches, the topic of abortion is once again at the forefront of the debate. Some people oppose abortion because they believe that a human being exists from the moment of conception; some people believe abortion should remain legal because a woman should have the right to choose whether or not to have a baby. In THE ABORTION DEBATE: UNDERSTANDING THE ISSUES, author Johannah Haney looks at all sides of the controversy. She explains the terms and issues involved, looks at topics the two sides can agree upon, and examines the part abortion could play in American politics of the future.
