Nowadays a number of considerations will lead people to have an abortion. In China ,the abortions occur in the second or third pregnancy when the first child is a girl and the family wants to have at least one son. There is still very strong gender discrimination existing in some families. Because of the one-child policy, many people volunteer to have an abortion or are forced to have an abortion by some relevant authorities. For some teenagers or young couples who are pregnant accidentally, they usually choose to have an abortion to terminate. For those who are unfortunately raped or have a wrongful relationship with the married ones ,they choose abortion too. But is it right to have an abortion ? It seems only one situation can be forgiven when the abortions have to be done due to medical factor. Abortion does great harm to the health. The most serious is that it'll be hard or impossible to be pregnant again. Out of the respect of new life ,it's better not to adopt abortion. However ,the existence of unmarried mothers is also a problem. It's really an issue hard to solve.
