Summary: Should abortion be permitted?                                                        

|        |The issue of abortion is one of the most contentious, and emotive dilemmas faced by modern societies. The question is whether   |
|         |one should allow the termination of a child whilst it is in its mother’s womb. For some, the question is even more fundamental:|
|         |at what stage is the foetus in the womb to be regarded as a child? The battle-lines are drawn between strict, religious         |
|         |(‘pro-life’) arguments (that it is never permissible), and those (‘pro-choice’) that emphasise the mother’s right to choose as |
|         |the primary concern. Whilst abortion has been accepted by the American state since the land-mark Roe vs. Wade case in the early|
|         |1970s, this is by no means a reflection of universal agreement – either international or within America itself – as many       |
|         |Western countries still have considerable restrictions on abortion. For example, the Irish position has softened only recently,|
|         |and the Catholic Church steadfastly refuses to change its resolutely pro-life stance in the face of criticism from Women’s and |
|         |other lobby-groups.                                                                                                             |
