Abortion is the termination of a pregnancy. It was made legal in the U.S. in 1973, following the Supreme Court case Roe v. Wade. However, it remains a highly debated political issue, both online and in real life, with many states instituting their own laws restricting access to services and banning the procedure under certain circumstances.
