    Yes, MOST would. But not all. For example a lot of Christian people would say no, they would say that it is not good to end someone's live. So also here is not a black-white situation. Personally I would leave the choice to the woman, abortus is such a difficult topic. If she wants it, then it is her choice. And we, as outsiders cannot decide whether it is right or wrong.

    Also in my opinion, Bin Laden is 100% bad. But there are a lot of people who say he isn't. So from a world's point of view, he is not 100% bad. That's what I meant with personal, YOU can give a yes or no on a certain question, but that does not mean that someone else would answer the same. So you can't question: is it good or bad in general.

    Shiro, I think you missed my point. My point was:

    major topic
    |
    details
    |
    furhter details
    |
    even further details
    |
    right vs.wrong

    I have been aware of all the time that there are people who say abortion is wrong in every aspect, but that's irrelevant in this case.

    I noticed your point, but what I meant was that there is no right and wrong when it comes to things which have to do with opinions. Even if you have infinite details, then it there still may be people saying it is right and others say it is wrong.

    I think the main reason why it is impossible to say if something is right or wrong is in the background of people. From how they are fed up by their parents, from how they grow up with school and friends, the develop an opinion. Since everyone has different opinions, sometimes even at very fundamental level, it is not possible to talk about right and wrong.

    Take the abortus case, assume people know detail, which is not likely, but just assume that's the situation. Even then, there will be people who say yes and people who say no.
