Abortion has been an issue of controversy for many years. This debate is evident at individual, political, social, and legal levels. Currently, over 30 countries in the world have legalized abortion (Ladok, 2010). In the USA abortion is legalized and is rampantly practiced. Statistics indicate that 25% of the pregnancies are aborted which represent over 4,000 abortion cases daily (Guttmacher Institute, 2010). The debate appeared strongly in the political arena in 2003 when former US President George Bush signed the Partial-Birth Ban Act criminalizing partial abortion; an act that raised uproar from the Democrats.
