A woman has the sole right to decide to seek an abortion

Yes

  1. A woman carries a child during pregnancy and undergoes child-birth. No-one else carries the child for her; it will be her responsibility alone, and thus she should have the sole right to decide. These are important events in a woman’s life, and if she does not want to go through the full nine months and subsequent birth, then she should have the right to choose not to do so. There are few – if any – other cases where something with such profound consequences is forced upon a human being against her/his will.

No

  1. The other side say, "profound consequences [are] forced upon a [woman] against her will". No one forced her to have sex, unless, of course, someone forced her to have sex. In the case of rape, most people agree that abortion is acceptable.
