Abortion Noellee Brown Pro-Life vs. Pro Choice Solutions? Will This Argument Ever End? How does America Feel Personal Feelings Bias Pro-Choice What Does Science Say Pro-Life What's the BIG deal? History How It All Started? Problem The two conflicting sides of varying of points of view on whether someone should have the right or not. In the 1960s, inspired by the civil rights and antiwar movements, women began to fight more actively for their rights. The fast-growing women's movement took the taboo subject of abortion to the public. Many women got up in front of strangers to talk about their illegal abortions. Women marched and rallied and lobbied for abortion on demand.

The pro-life movement argues that even non-viable, undeveloped human life is sacred and must be protected by the government. Abortion, according to this model, must not be legal, nor should it be widely practiced on an illegal basis. The pro-choice movement argues that in cases where human personhood cannot be proven, e.g. in pregnancies prior to the point of viability, the government does not have the right to impede a woman's right to decide whether or not to continue a pregnancy.
