Abortion is no different than murder no matter when a person believes a human life becomes official. This controversy will remain for centuries, but in no country should it be legal. The fact that a potential life has ended before given a chance is murder. Most people agree that no one should have the choice of who lives and who dies. There are many reasons why abortion should be illegal. The most disturbing of these reasons is that the aborted babies sometimes scream when they are being taken out.
The preceding fact alone should be enough reason for anyone considering pregnancy termination to stop considering it. Understanding that abortion is murder aids a woman in making the healthiest decision for her and her baby. Though a mother may not want her baby, she must keep in mind her health, and that there are other viable options such as adoption that don’t end in death. Many couples who are not blessed with fertility would be very glad to make this baby live a happy life.
One of the most important reasons abortion should be illegal beyond the fact that it terminates life is that most women have regret and life complications because of this. By eliminating the possibility of women doing this society eliminates future health problem in these women’s lives. Many government programs exist in order to empower, protect, and support women with unplanned pregnancies. There are many reasons a woman may ave an unplanned pregnancies, but none that justify terminating early life.
Understanding the biology of the developing fetus further allows strong arguments to develop concerning why abortion is murder. So many stories describing the human characteristics of these aborted babies remain untold therefore the uneducated women continue the growing statistics of abortion. Though it is easy to visualize lower-class minority women filling the statistics of abortion, studies show that the majority of women succeeding in this action are in the upper-class population. However, the statistics are unclear concerning the number of rape victims that lead women to abortion.
In addition to complications after the procedure, a woman runs a high risk of death during the surgery, which increases based on how far along the woman is in her pregnancy. People advocating the illegality of abortion are people who are passionate about the life health and well being of every chance at life that is possible. Though no act is unforgiveable, this one is unforgettable. The women will have to live with the fact that she murdered a chance at living for the rest of her life. Advertisement also has a lot to do with it.
Many women don’t consider abortion until they see an add somewhere. If women don’t see these advertisements in everyday life more of them would likely choose adoption. Adoption is a bad choice in general, but late term abortions are even worse. At four months, when a lot of women make the dicision to have an abortion, the baby has a very high survival rate. If a baby has a chance at survival, why make the decision to kill it? Many adoptive parents will pay for hospitalization of your child and any other medical bills.
Abortion isn’t cheap and no one wants to live with that guilt. With abortion, your pregnancy ends with death. You may feel guilt and shame about your choice. You will remember taking a life. Abortion is final; you can’t go back on that decision. Also you will miss the opportunity to treasure your baby and watch it grow. Finally, if a woman is responsible enough to be having sex, she should be responsible enough to bring the baby into the world. Especially with adoption ending happily, I don’t see why any woman would want to kill a baby. Adoption is murder and should be illegal.
