Abortion is a crime against life, just like murder or anything else. It should not be encouraged, or allowed by the government. Have you ever thought of killing anyone?
This question sounds ridiculous, but it crosses the minds of millions of American pregnant women every day. No matter how you say it, abortion is the taking of a life. According to US Abortion data provided in 1995 by Planned Parenthood, there were 1.8 million first trimester abortions, 180 thousand second trimester abortions, and about four thousand required Hysterectomies. According to these figures, the United States as a whole killed or aborted 1,984,000 fetuses. It is horrendous to think about 1 child being aborted, but 1,984,000 children, that is beyond words. According to the Planned Parenthood ...view middle of the document...
The concept is that the woman is taking the life of her child. If the child werenâ€™t a fetus, a woman could serve years to life in prison, why isnâ€™t this the same for a fetus? It is a human being, not at its fetus stage, but it will be, unless its life is ended. In a study conducted by Dr. Paul Sachdef, less than 25% of women felt guilty after having an abortion. The study concluded that most women felt â€œhappiness and reliefâ€ after having the abortion. They felt happy and relieved after killing their child. Is this morally right? By no sane standards. He also found the elective abortion is much less traumatic for the parent/s than an elective adoption. Many seemed to disagree with the doctor's findings. Several believe that post-traumatic abortion syndrome does notÂ set in until perhaps seven years after the abortion. I would have to think that someone would feel depression or some kind of guilt or loneliness after having aborted her child. What do you think?Â
UNICEF states that 250,000 women die annually from abortions, so, not only does abortion end a childâ€™s life, it could end a motherâ€™s as well. It also increases a teenâ€™s risk of breast cancer by 800%.
Ronald Regan once stated, â€œAbortion is advocated only by persons who have themselves been born,â€. It is selfishness in the utmost degree for one to kill a child so they themselves can live as they wish. Not only does it murder a child, but it poses health risks to women worldwide. There are other options besides aborting an unwanted child. I would like to end with another quote. â€œAbortions will not let you forget. You remember the children you got that you did not get.â€ â€“Gwendolyn Brooks. Immediately after the abortion, one may feel relieved, but will you feel relieved in seven years? Think twice before ending your childâ€™s life.
