Abortion: Stopping A Beating Heart
Abortion is killing of an unborn baby. It is a procedure that is performed during the early stages of pregnancy. In the past abortion used to be illegal, however it is now legal and is also a major controversy in our country today. On one hand are the Pro-Choice supporters mostly consisting of feminist, teen mothers, rape, and incest victims. On the other hand are the Pro-Life supporters, mostly consisting of Christians and Catholics. In spite of the many arguments in favor of abortion, the murder of unborn infants is wrong, immoral, and should be illegal.
Pro-Life supporters choose life over abortion because they believe that abortion is wrong and
unjust, goes against the bible, is murdering a defenseless unborn baby, and because it does not show any respect for human life. There are many Pro-Life supporters that fight against abortion everyday so that, abortion can be illegal today.
I believe that in spite of the many arguments in favor of abortion, the murder of unborn infants is wrong, immoral, and should be illegal. Abortion is not only killing of a defenseless unborn baby, but it is also taking them from what they considered to be the safest place on earth their own mother’s womb, and throwing them into a dumpster. There have been many cases of nurses who worked in abortion clinics, and had to quit because they became sick of what was going on inside. They tell of some babies being born whole including the head, and then being killed through methods of drowning, or by other horrific methods. Many nurses watched in horror, as the babies flailed their little arms and legs fighting for their lives.
However pro-choice supporters say that unborn babies are not humans, and consider abortion not to be murder. They consider it to be nothing more than a mere killing of an unborn fetus. When then is a baby considered human. It is proven that once conceived the baby is alive. Many babies are born from c-sections which is when the doctor has to take the baby out of the mother’s stomach for premature birth. In recent studies it shows that unborn babies do feel pain. Animals are given anesthetics when they are killed in late term, yet babies are not given any sort of pain killers, and have to suffer through excruciating pain when they are being torn apart. Considering the fact that God created us at conception, to kill a baby five seconds after it is born, is the same as killing a child at five years of age. The principle of violence is still the same in both cases.
If the fetus is human, and murder is wrong as the law currently states, then it is a civil issue just like all other crimes. Legislating morality would make it illegal to not practice a religion – prohibiting abortion protects the rights of citizens just like every other law. Animals are given anesthetics when they are killed in late term, yet babies are not given any sort of pain killers, and have to suffer through excruciating pain when they are being torn apart. If someone were to destroy the Mona Lisa or some other creation by a famous artist, the world would be up in arms about it. “How could they do such a thing?” everyone would scream. Where is their outrage, when a baby is butchered inside its mother’s womb? Can there be any comparison between the most famous paintings in the world and God’s most magnificent creation – human life? How did our values get so twisted?.
To be anything other than Pro-Life is wrong, and shows no respect for life whatsoever.
In many cases of abortions, feminists tend to say that it is their own body, and that they can do whatever they please with it. Yes, it is a true statement that it is their body. It is also a true statement that women have the fascinating ability to conceive babies. The baby is a separate living human being from the mother. When they say abortion is between a woman and her doctor, they are leaving the central, significant person out. A woman
