ABORTION: THE ARGUMENT One of our present day and most non-respectable topics is abortion. Abortion is an issue that stirs up, on all sides, very strong feelings and judgments and very heated blame. Abortion was created to aid in certain situations in which a woman could not or did not want to give birth to a child and care for the child. It is a method in which the baby is still in the mother's womb and the living embryo or fetus is killed. The whole idea of abortions is immoral, and especially how they are done so viciously. Everyday, innocent, harmless fetuses that could soon be laughing children are being brutally destroyed.

One form of abortion is to cut the fetus into pieces with serrated forceps before being removed, piece, by piece from the uterus by suction with a vacuum aspirator. Another form of abortion removal consists of bringing the fetus feet first into the birth canal, and puncturing its head. The parts are then given letters, rather than being referred to what they actually are. The remains of the fetus or embryo are put into plastic buckets, and then sent to a dumpster where the bones and limbs are disposed of. It is said that abortions are performed for many various reasons. For example, it could done because of an unwanted pregnancy, social or financial reasons, medical circumstances with the mother, or perhaps even for medical circumstances of the child, such as genetic irregularities, or even down syndrome, and even at times in this situation parents may feel that they would be incapable of caring for the child and often the parents feel that to have their child would have negative consequences to their lives.

However, often, what are not taken into consideration are the negative effects after abortions, which could be physical or even psychological. The results may actually be worse than the problems, which were to be solved in the beginning. These after effects should be dealt with in a better and more suitable manner. One of the most often repeated arguments is that abortion should be legal. Nevertheless, that is only because it would continue being practiced even if it were to be illegal. The fact that something is happening or will continue to happen cannot be an argument for whether it is acceptable or moral or just.

Abortion on a whole is wrong. It is also very sad to have to say, that about an estimated forty-six million abortions are performed worldwide each year, of which twenty million are performed in countries where abortion is restricted or prohibited by law. As a result, illegal abortions are done, which are accounted for about an estimated seventy-eight thousand deaths worldwide each year, or about one in seven pregnancy-related deaths. However, people don't seem to realize that there is one important thing that they are failing to see. It is that by aborting these unborn infants, they are only hurting themselves.

This is because they are not allowing themselves to meet these new identities and unique and different personalities that God has created and blessed them with. Everyone on this earth is raised up knowing right from wrong, for a fact. As far as we all know, murder is wrong, so why is abortion not wrong? People stay and argue saying that it is not murder since the fetus is being destroyed. But the fetus is a living, breathing, and moving person too, that would be living a life just as anyone else in this world, so it is murder. Nevertheless there is little progress in the issue of abortion, because both sides haven't taken the time to what the other side id arguing for.

The supporters that are against argue that abortion is taking an innocent life for no reason. Supports for abortion do not see abortion as taking innocent lives, but as a beneficial medical procedure. This procedure gives women the power to make decisions like never before. Before the option should even be explores, the pro-life question needs to be answered.

After all, a social revolution based upon murdering babies should not be acceptable to anyone, no matter how great those benefits are. The whole point of the argument for abortion rests on this single question. If life begins as conception, then taking that life after conception is murder. If life begins at birth or later, then abortion cannot be objected on grounds of murder. I believe in the evidence in favor of an unborn child being a person. They have their own blood, DNA, heart beat, brain, and actions.

Basically, this means that an unborn child cannot be called just organ tissue from the mother. Organ tissue would not have these characteristics. Individual human beings have these characteristics.
