The Angels asked God: Is there a solution for the abortion debate? God: Yes, of course my Angels. It will be resolved. The Angels: When? God: Not in my lifetime. (Oktay Kadayifci) The abortion debate is an emotional, sensitive and complicated issue that interests society and religion. Our intention is not to convince you to accept either side of the debate, but to help with an understanding of both sides. As a health care provider, our mission is to reduce unwanted pregnancies and provide a loving home for all children. Whatever our efforts as a medical health care provider, they have not been successful in meeting the needs. One of the available methods is pregnancy termination, but the main issue is whether pregnancy termination is a method or not. Pro-life and pro-choice proponents have their strong and reasonable views. In this paper, we try to clarify the claims of both sides without any intervention.
