In life, everything needs to be balanced. Food and diet needs to be balanced, work and play needs to be balanced, and our society needs to balanced. But one thing that isnt balanced, society's views on abortion. Many people have a pre-set idea about abortion. And depending on if your religious or not, liberal or not or even what country you live in can affect your views on abortion on way or another. The pro-life side sees abortion as the murder of an innocent little baby. The pro-choice side sees abortion as the removal of something that is optional until it's born. But like life, we need balance between these two ideas. We need people to realize that mistakes happen, and we shouldn't punish a girl by throwing her life away with unwanted baby. But people should also realize that this is a living being, and this being will eventually become a person, and the decision to have an abortion shouldn't be made without thinking about it.
