One of those privilege is the right t

The Significance of Choice Victoria Bissell Brown put it best with her writings in, "Abortion Fight Is Over Choice." The title alone has a significant meaning.

Women s Choice-Abortion Abortion is a very controversial subject. There are many beliefs and exceptions. Many people fail to realize or understand that it is a personal decision.

Abortion In the United States about 25% of woman decide to end their pregnancies through abortion. In most cases the woman is just one of those who have pre-marital sex, a teenager, or a victim of rape. Even though this percentage is small, women are still taking the life of a child who is still dependent on others for survival.
