Two Views on a Controversial Issue

In the society we live in, we all view things differently.   One’s opinion is not everyone else’s.   For years, abortions have been a major controversial issue.   We argue whether they should be illegal or if the woman should have control over their fertility.   We argue whether abortions should be covered under the health care reform or if the women should pay for it out of their own pocket
