Prolife Can I Live
Pro-life : Can I live ?
In this world of war and struggle , the price of life has sky rocketed due to the selfishness of
mankind. The obligations a woman is faced with throughout her life can be overwhelming, natural
occurrences such as pregnancy and menstruation are no small worry, the kind of burden no male
could ever imagine undergoing. The most heavily debated burden of women all across the world
is the dreaded abortion. Each year, 46 million women worldwide experience an abortion, a fact
that would make anyone sick to their stomach, bringing up the question, should abortion be legal?
Reasons for having an abortion can vary, but it is clear that the woman is just not ready for
children in their life. Worldwide, the average for an abortion in a woman’s life time is one per
each woman, this statistic shows that the use of contraceptives are almost non existent, in fact it is
another statistic that 2/3 of women across the globe used contraceptives rarely or not at all. Many
question’s arise when speaking on the subject of contraceptive usage, should a child’s life be
denied because of the irresponsibility of a female’s actions ? Why couldn’t the woman be more
careful? These are the questions woman who have an abortion deal with.
When is the Fetus considered a life ? Most people would answer, when the heartbeat can be
detected. Each day, an average of 120,000 abortions are performed, this fact does not state the
age the fetus has attained of, making abortion seem ever more horrifying, to kill a life when it
already develops heartbeat can almost be considered murder, questioning the law based right to
have an abortion. It is true that 80 %of women feel a sense of relief and satisfaction soon after the
abortion is performed, but does it matter to them that just a matter of minutes earlier, a human life
had just been taken out of them ?
The trauma that comes along with abortion is not as lasting as one might think, it is researched
that giving up a child for an abortion is actually less traumatic than giving up a child for adoption,
but should that fact be comfort to a female ? Does she not care about what has just occurred ? So
many questions are asked about this topic, but the results lead nowhere, for it does not solve
anything. Seeing the effects of abortion shows evermore that the operation should be silenced
form hospitals everywhere. “And a peasant cried out to god saying,”please god, why don’t you
send us a saviour?”and god answered,”I did, but you aborted them.
