The Abortion Debate
There are all kinds of people in the world, and we all have different
opinions. In this report I am discussing abortion. You will read about
the pros and cons of this subject. Some people think that abortion is
wrong; they think that abortion is the killing of innocent children.
Other people believe that the unborn child is not actually a human
until it takes its first breath of air.
Many people think that having an abortion is in a way, murder. Many of
