Is getting an abortion a social norm that is culturally universal or is it a norm that varies across cultures?

    Abortion didn't become a social norm until "poverty" became a social norm.

    There is no such thing as a cultural universal. If there is any possible way to behave that isn't immediately detrimental to group survival, humans have tried it.

    It varies across cultures. Not all cultures of the world are as morally impoverished as is the west.

    Originally a social norm. Even the Christian bible allowed it.
