political views

The different parties have different views on wether or not abortion should be legal. The topic abortion is very rough and almost impossible to make a law or rule about it because it is all about your own beliefs and opinions.

Religious views

Most religions do not believe in abortions, some see it as an unforgivable sin. However, the mother of the baby is still in charge and does not have to have any religious values. The mother has the choice.
