Abortion Should be Aborted The solution for the problem of abortion having been legalized is two parts. First we must recognize and agree that life begins at conception and that because of that, any tampering with that life should be punished just as any other life. To do so, lobbyists need to work with legislators, letting them know it is a problem. Next, voices must be heard. The impact that social media has on today's culture is indescribable. With a click of a button many people can read what others believe and why they believe it.
