Abortion is necessary because of the potential of existing circumstances that would be a detriment to the mother or fetus. The mother could be physically, mentally, or emotionally unwell and not capable of being pregnant or having a child without endangering her health; the pregnancy could have possibly been the result of a terrible crime, such as rape or incest; the fetus could be unhealthy and be a danger to the mother's health.

Prolife vs. Prochoice Is abortion right or wrong? In a society that often rejects alternate ways of thinking we sometimes avoid facing controversial issues such as abortion.
