Abortion is more of a prototypical bioethics topic, which has raised extremely personal issues for the majority of the people. Firstly, it is a divisive and polarizing matter that has raised endless discussions about science, sexuality, morals, medicine, religion, autonomy, and politics. In fact, it is today a vital and central issue that decides what people can say about unborn children, that develop from embryos to fetuses. As a legal and philosophical discussion about what rights to offer them, the issue of personhood arises.

On the other hand, some claim that human personhood arrives only when the fetus is sentient. A section of the people has no issue if people abort as long as there are good reasons for it. It is therefore an issue that is not only debatable but also critical in the sense that some legal aspects must be considered.
