Wikipedia Controversial Topic


Abortion is a very controversial and highly sensitive topic of conversation to many. Whether it’s because you don’t believe in it due to you being conservative, or you agree in prochoice/abortion rights because you’re more of a liberal, the conversation can escalate and quickly get out of hand. Knowing that the resources on Wikipedia talking about abortion come from various anonymous sources doesn’t change the way I view my own thoughts on abortion, much rather changes the way I view Wikipedia’s thoughts on abortion. I have to be extra cautious about how I read into it/view the statements and “facts”, it may be more one sided or biased and give the wrong idea to readers so they can lean a certain way. These end up being both the pros and cons: there are many different inputs to cover a variety of abortion processes, the only downside being the information may be one sided.
