Abortion Should Be Made Illegal


Abortion should be made illegal. Abortion is murder, it is the killing
of an unborn baby. In today\'s society, regular people are not allowed to go out
and just murder someone for no reason, so why should doctors be allowed to
murder unborn babies? "Abortion is not merely the removal of some tissue from a
woman\'s body....Abortion is the destruction of an unborn baby." (O\'Connor 93)
According to John C. Willke, president of the National Right to Life Committee,
"At the union of sperm and ovum there exists a living, single-celled, complete
human being." Therefore, according to what John C. Willke says, abortion at ANY
stage of pregnancy is the immoral taking of human life and should be illegal.
"The bible makes it clear that to God the unborn child developing inside the
womb is far more than mere fetal tissue. He inspired King David to write:
"Your eyes saw even the embryo of me, and in your book all its parts were down
in writing." (Young 25-27) The bible (Exodus 21:22, 23) has clearly stated
that a person would be held accountable for hurting an unborn baby. (Young 25-
27) Take this for example; Say a woman is walking down the street carrying a
child in her arms. Another woman is walking down that same street carrying a
child, only this woman is carrying the child in her. Both children are
dependent on their mothers, both just dependent in different ways. (Schwarz 35)
Take another example "Suppose a woman suffers a miscarriage, A sympathetic
doctor will not tell her, "You have lost your fetus"; he will say; "You have
lost your child"." (Schwarz 35) If an abortion is picked the term "fetus" is
used as a cold scientific "neutral" word which switches the persons mind from
reality, and also will flip the seriousness, and preciousness of a unborn baby.
(Schwarz 35) Can it be so possible in today\'s society that we "get so caught up
trying to be sensitive to the woman and her suffering that we forget the baby
altogether." (Gallagher 63)) People today do not want to see a young persons
"life" ruined because of an unwanted pregnancy, so they see their only choice is
abortion. (O\'Connor 94) Many people in today\'s society do not accept capital
punishment, they feel it is not humane. Before capital punishment is even
considered, the human is given a fair chance of trial by jury, and if found
guilty -- then administered the death penalty. (O\'Connor 98) "Yet many people
who reject capital punishment accept, support and consider it a :right: to take
the life of an innocent unborn baby, who has never had a trial or been found
guilty." (O\'Connor 98) Is it not ironic that in a hospital a doctor will work
for hours trying to save the life of a premature baby, but then in another room
a doctor will work to end the life of another. The political laws will allow
the doctor to kill the baby inside the mother\'s womb, but outside the womb this
would be called Murder. (Awake! 3-5)
"According to one study, 87 percent of teenagers who have abortions fear
the having a baby would dramatically change their lives in a way they are not
prepared to accept." (Young 25-27) Many people will agree that abortion is
wrong, but than they will consider abortion if a woman is raped. Many studies
today show that pregnancy from rape is very rare. " One survey of 3,500
consecutive victims of rape in Minneapolis, U.S.A., yielded not a single case of
pregnancy. Of 86,000 abortions in the former Czechoslovakia, only 22 were for
rape. Thus, only a tiny portion of those seeking abortions do so for these
reasons." (Awake! 3-5) "From 50 million to 60 million unborn babies perish
each year by abortion. Can you comprehend that number? It would be like
sweeping the entire population of the Hawaiian Island off the map every week!"
(Awake! 6-9) "In the United States, abortion is the second most common surgical
procedure, next to tonsillectomy. Annually, over 1.5 million abortions are
performed." (Awake! 6-9) "In what was the Soviet Union, abortions are
estimated at 11 million annually, among the highest number worldwide." (Awake!
6-9)
As we can see the main topics that people use today to say that Abortion
should remain legal is all contradicted. Many people state the right of a Woman,
but we can see the fetus in her is not just a fetus, it is a developing human
being. We also see that the bible states that God knows
