This is a very big moral issue. I wonder is people realize that they are killing an innocent baby Yes it is a fetus, but it is in the process of becoming a whole innocent, beautiful baby. God is just in the process of creating. Every baby deserves a chance at life. You did. No matter how hard that life might be.
It sickens me that there are people having abortions just because they made a mistake, and could just not say no. Some woman use abortion as a form of birth control. I dont know why helpless little babies should die due to someone elses mistake. Isaiah 44: 2 says, Thus saith the Lord that made thee, and formed thee from the womb... This just proves the fact that as soon as conception, God starts creating. This is something He does very well.
I believe that Abortion is murder. The definition of murder is: the unlawful and malicious or premeditated killing of one human being to another. The definition of abortion is: any deliberate procedure that removes, or induces the expulsion of a living or dead embryo or fetus. The definitions use the words malicious, premeditated, and deliberate. These are all synonyms. Why is it that if a person gets into an accident with a pregnant woman, and the woman and the baby die, the person is charged with two counts of man slaughter In that case the baby is considered as a living baby.
In the case of abortion though the baby is only considered a fetus. Did you know that a Doctor can make an abortion, to kill the baby at 5 months of conception, without any problem. However, if the same doctor gives a medicine to the mother at 2 weeks or 5 months of conception, and the baby is born with a birth defect, that Doctor will be sued for more than a million dollars. That doesnt make since to me. The Doctor can kill the baby deliberately, but he can not damage the baby by accident Here are some statistics on abortion: There is 54 million abortions per year worldwide, 1 million abortions pe week, and 3 abortions per minute. In 1999, there were 1, 500, 000 abortions in the US.
Did you know that 18 days after conception, an EKG of the baby can be record a human heart. 40 days after conception, measurable waves of the childs brain can be found Three months after conception the baby has legs ans arms with the same fingerprints as it would have when it is grown. If you are not sure exactly what the abortion procedure is, I will explain it. Suction aspiration, or "vacuum curettage," is the abortion technique used in most first trimester abortions. A powerful suction tube with a sharp cutting edge is inserted into the womb through the dilated cervix. The suction dismembers the body of the developing baby and tears the placenta from the wall of the uterus, sucking blood, amniotic fluid, placental tissue, and fetal parts into a collection bottle.
If you think this is gross, there are many other forms of abortion. There is one called Partial-Birth Abortions. This is usually only done when the mothers life depends on it. This procedure is used to abort women who are 20 to 32 weeks pregnant - or even later into pregnancy. Guided by ultrasound, the abortionist reaches into the uterus, grabs the unborn babys leg with forceps, and pulls the baby into the birth canal, except for the head, which is deliberately kept just inside the womb. (At this point in a partial-birth abortion, the baby is alive.
) Then the abortionist jams scissors into the back of the babys skull and spreads the tips of the scissors apart to enlarge the wound. After removing the scissors, a suction catheter is inserted into the skull and the babys brains are sucked out. The collapsed head is then removed from the uterus. Just writing about it makes me sick, and to think people actually have this done.
There are other choices then abortion. There is always adoption. There are many people who want a baby ans can not have one, who would love to have the baby. I was researching this subject and found a comparison between abortion and adoption. It went like this: The SimilaritiesAbortionYou will be free from the financial burdens of parenting If you are a teenager, you can resume your youthful lifestyle Adoption You will be free from the financial burdens of parenting If you are a teenager, you can resume your youthful lifestyle The DifferencesAbortionYour pregnancy ends with death You will remember talking a life Adoption Your pregnancy ends with giving life You will remember giving birth People know how I feel about abortion, and they say, Well what if a person is raped and gets pregnant My answer to that person is that they could just give the baby up for adoption. There is no reason why someone should have an abortion.
I will also tell the person that what I see when somebody gets pregnant due to being raped is God just making something so beautiful as a baby out of something so ugly as rape.
