While much of the abortion movement began in the 1970s, there were controversies over the practice even in the 1960s. This article from 1969 proves that abortion did not come out of the shadows during the 1970s, but came on gradually through time as abortions became more noticed.
Different people have different opinions about abortion. Many people believe that it should be made legal and it should be entirely the choice of the expecting parents whether they wish to keep the baby or not. To the other side a huge section thinks that it should be made illegal since abortion is not less than a murder. 40% women think that abortion should be made illegal where as 43% male believes that it should be made illegal. On the other hand 55% women think that abortion should be legal and 51% of men think that abortion should be made legal.
Something both sides of the abortion debate can agree …
Abortion is often debated as a women's rights issue or as a rights issuefor the unborn. It is neither. It would be wrong to protect women's rightsby simply ignoring the case for the unborn; and it would be wrong to protectthe unborns' rights by simply ignoring the case for women. The issue isnot who has rights; both sides have some rights, or at least considerationsto take into account. The issue is not who has rights, but what is right,and when, and why. Further, I will try to show that there are many thingssociety could easily do that would protect both women and unborn childrenby making both motherhood and growing up not so tragically burdensome inmany cases and thereby prevent abortion from becoming a necessary considerationin those cases. Many women who seek abortions do not really want them,but see them regrettably as their only reasonable choice. If there werebetter choices or options available in such cases, as I think there easilycould be if society simply wants there to be, women and their unborn childrenwould both be better off. Both could have their "rights" preserved.

While the fight over abortion continues to work its way through the country, this does not mean that the women’s rights movement made no ground in the 1970s. Women’s rights progressed much more than previous movements and contribute to the freedom that women in the United States have today. Because of the attention that the movement gained because of the debates over abortion, the women’s rights movement managed to gain more recognition that it had previous to these arguments.

Latin America is known for its catholic believes where as certain countries have made abortion legal in some other countries doctors and their patients opting for an abortion without any sound reason could be legally punished. 95% abortion performed in Latin America was unsafe. In the regions were restrictions on abortions are low, the abortion rates are also low but in places where there are strict abortion laws, more number of abortions are seen.

The issue of whether seriously unhealthy or seriously malformed fetuses should be identified and aborted:
since quality of life does seem to be a consideration, and since certainkinds of defects assure suffering and preclude even minimal quality oflife, it seems that anyone arguing severely deformed or fatally or morbidly ill fetuses should beallowed to be born (or "forced" to be born and thus forced to suffer) needsto have and to show some very good reasons why. The simplistic argumentthat abortionists are playing God is not sufficient. We are playing Godeither way, since we have the power either way (assuming the real God doesnot intervene the opposite way and really play God) for bringing aboutabortion or live delivery. We are playing God just as much to make someonebe born as when we keep someone from being born.
