Abortion is Murder and Immoral
In Americas Society Abortion is a topic that most people rather not face. More and more abortions occur everyday, causing potential lives to be terminated due to irresponsible sexual activity among adults and teens. Abortions cheats the unborn child of his or hers existence and unknown experiences to come. Abortions are quick escape goats for irresponsible individuals and cause pain, suffering, and death. I t is against the law and immoral to kill another human being, and by terminating a fetus you are performing another act of killing. In my essay I will use different articles and references to back my conclusion of how Abortions are cruel, examples of different types of abortions and how abortion is nothing else but killing.
Abortion is the act of terminating a life before birth. An abortion results in the death of an embryo or a fetus. Abortion destroys the lives of potential children and has a large effect on the person having the abortion and individuals around them. By aborting these unborn infants, humans are hurting themselves; they are not allowing themselves to meet these new identities and unique personalities. Abortion is wrong. In American households killing is looked as being wrong. As Americans we teach our children to value life because it is precious and to take another life or your own is immoral. Murder of another Individual is wrong, so why is it that Abortion is not wrong when both are Terminating lives. There are arguments over whether it is murder if a child is unborn. Abortion is murder since the fetus being destroyed is living, breathing and moving. There is no difference between four months into pregnancy or one month after birth, the result is still a terminated life.

Therefore , when I die I, am deprived of all of the value of my future . Inflicting this loss on me is ultimately what makes killing me wrong. This being the case, it would seem tat what makes killing any adult human being prima facie seriously wrong is the loss of his or her future.”(Don Marquis p127) Don Marquis compares Abortion to Wanton infliction of pain on animals. Marquis came to the conclusion that infliction of pain cause suffering, and since causing suffering is what makes the wanton infliction of pain wrong and since the wanton infliction of pain on animals cause suffering, it follows that the wanton infliction of pain on animals is wrong. (Don Marquis p.127) Terminating of a life causes suffering so Abortions are under the same principal which makes abortions wrong also.
There are many ways to Abort, kill. 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...
