Abortion: Is it Murder? A mother kills her baby because it is unwanted, yet she is not charged with murder. Is this right? Believe it or not, this has happened more than twenty-million times in the past twenty years. The problem is that they have been killed legally because of abortion. Many people approve of abortion because they consider that a fetus is not an individual human until birth.

Abortion is wrong and it shouldn't be legal. If a doctor killed a baby one minute after it were born, they would be charged with murder. But if they were to kill a baby one minute before it were born, and a minute before that and so on, they would not be considered a murderer. At what minute can one consider life worthless and the next precious? Some people will say that abortion is not a matter of life and death, but medical research proves that the fetus is a living organism. People also argue that a woman has the right to control her body and has the right to an abortion, but the fetus is a completely different life. Just because the unborn is dependent on the mother for nine months does not give anyone the right to end it's life.

I hope that I have at least brought you to some understanding that a human fetus is a living individual. It should be remembered that a death occurs every time an abortion is performed– the death of an unborn child.
