The pie chart “Effects of Abortion on Relationships” show 65% saying yes it positively affects relationships while 35% say no, relationships are negatively affected. Interpretation of the Data The analysis of the data collected for this research is as follows.

The survey conducted had 60% of the respondents to be female, most were between the ages of 24-30 and 85% were single. Most of the respondents were from the Christian faith and most of the respondents felt that religion does influence opinion on abortion. All respondents voted that a woman should have control over what happens to her odd. Thirty percent of respondents said that they know someone or has done to themselves an abortion. 100% of the respondents said that they are not against all forms of abortion and that excuses are Justifiable based b poverty.

Remorse and infertility were seen as the major long term effects. Most people said that an abortion positively affects relationships because most times the partners are mutual in the decision. Other opinions voiced in the survey proved that most times abortions are as a result of economic crisis and it does not affect relationships because most times the feeling views on abortion. Most people felt that abortion should be legalized because there are many situations when there need to be premature termination of a life. Also, most of the respondents said that remorse is probably the biggest long term effect of abortion.

Results The results of the survey proved that most people were for the legalization of abortion. People felt that abortion should be legalized because there are situations when taking an abortion is an intelligent option. The research also proved that underage pregnancies and financial crisis are the primary reasons for abortions. People felt that these two categories had many people ho need emergency termination more frequently than all other categories. My research also proved that relationships are not severely affected by abortions.

Reason being, many couples Jointly agree that they do not want a child at the present moment. I also found that religion does tremendously influence opinion on abortion. Many of my respondents felt that the Bible is against abortion because it says thou shall not kill. Finally, popular opinion supports abortion that is based on a genuine cause rather than a resort for purposeful reckless behavior. Recommendation and Conclusion There needs to be more awareness of the actual effects of abortion and how negatively it impacts the carrier and the environment.

Public education methods should be attempted to gain more awareness for the dangers and prevention of abortions. If there is more awareness people will be able to make better decisions and in the process implement preventative methods to forestall the need for the process in any case. Abortions result in suicides and mental depression. It severely affects the carrier emotionally and it is generally a poor social practice. My recommendation is that people should educate themselves and make wise decisions.
