Those who agree with the legalisation of abortion are often described as "pro-choice". Their opponents argue that they are also "pro-abortion" because they agree with the practice of abortion. The main argument of the pro-choice lobby is that every woman has the right to control what goes on in her own body. They therefore believe that pregnant women have the right to choose whether they should terminate their pregnancy or not. Some pro-choice people accept the notion that life begins at conception but that a woman still has the right to end the life of their child. Others do not accept this and agree that life starts later on in pregnancy or, for some people, at the moment of birth. There are various views within the movement as to whether abortion laws should be further restricted, or indeed, be liberalised to allow abortion to be more readily available, without restrictions.
