why Abortion? Angela Felix
Abortion restrictions were added to the legislators agenda. For years, conservatives rallied support around opposition to abortion. Tougher laws have continued to press against abortion.
This issue relates to structural functional because peoples opinions work together in order to promote solidarity & stability. Statistics say that 3/4 of women say that cannot afford a baby, 3/4 say the child would interfere with work, school, half say they don't want to be a single parent. There are real risks for women having abortions. This debate shows social conflict because attitudes toward abortion vary among members, it was found that a lot of people feel negatively towards women that have had an abortion. A lot of people have different opinions on this topic, some people may think aborting is a mistake and will make you feel guilty forever. Others have no regrets... It also shows symbolic interaction because it shows different individuals views, experiences, thoughts and expectations. Some women who have had abortions think they need more support. One woman said, "abortion is not a quick fix. It left me with a lifetime of consequences , a lifetime of depression, anxiety and eating disorder"
