This paper conducts a comparative analysis of abortion laws, exploring the associated stereotypes linked to pro-choice and pro-life perspectives. It delves into recent court decisions on pregnancy termination, examining their implications and reflecting on the overarching goal of human rights. By dissecting societal attitudes, normative beliefs, and legal frameworks, the study unveils the complex interplay between legislation and public perception. Emphasizing a broader understanding of reproductive rights, the research elucidates how recent legal developments shape the evolving landscape. The primary focus remains on the intersection of abortion laws with the fundamental principles of human rights, contributing to a nuanced discourse that transcends the dichotomy of pro-choice and pro-life ideologies.
