Abortion is perhaps one of the most controversial and sensitive issues in terms of sexuality, because it forces women to make a decision that includes a number of personal and external factors leaving in questions the future of the creation of new being.
In addition, its ethical, religious and moral implications abortion is a subject that must be touched with tweezers.
Let’s go back through history to understand a little more about this delicate issue. In more advanced Greek and Roman cultures, the practice of “abortion” was a natural practice of the doctors of the time, even the philosopher Socrates was always in favor of a natural right of all women.
The Greeks also made use of this method to control the size of its population and maintained a stable economy of the country. But it is not until the second century that the Old World enacted laws against abortion, which included harsh punishment against the mother and the person responsible for inducing the loss of the child.
As in the early eighteenth century, many of the countries of Europe passed laws to make “abortion” an illegal and reprehensible practice.
In recent years the issue of “abortion” has become more important due to the multiple factors that have enter the discussion. One of them is when the life of the mother is in danger and as a way of saving the life of the mother. Another case is when the baby suffers a serious malformation that hinders its normal development in society.
After the Second World War (1945), a pro abortion wave hit the world, what’s more, in the decade of the 60, the decision of the father, was no longer to be taken into account, to only focus on the opinion of the mother when it came to choosing to keep a baby. However, to date there are some countries such as Egypt,Iraq, El Salvador, the Philippines, and the Vatican that have completely banned the practice of abortion.
