I have always been convinced that abortion should be illegal. I have always been taught to consider that when a fetus (a baby developing inside the stomach) is growing it has feelings, emotions, and physical processes that make him or her alive just like people who have been born. To have an abortion is to kill someone; it is murder. Often, the aftermath of abortion is devastating with guilt, shame, and even death. Since every action has a consequence, I think we should act in righteousness. Abortion is wrong because it endangers a person’s health, creates negative psychological effects, contradicts my convictions, and goes against the Bible.
The first major reason why I am against abortion is that it has too many heath risks involved. According to www.abortionfacts.com, women who through with in an abortion can get infected, which can cause permanent damage of organ and body tissue (Willke). For example, any kind of medical procedure, such as surgery, can cause infection. When infection spreads to the fallopian tubes it causes pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). This disease can cause permanent infertility and death. Another example is that surgeries often require patients to have blood transfusions. If blood transfusions go wrong, a risk of viral hepatitis can occur and cause death. With these two dangers, I considered that abortion can have devastating results that can lead to death.
Another result of abortion is negative psychological consequences. I also believe abortion causes regret. Anne Baker, a counselor at Hope Clinic in Granite City, Illinois, stated that whenever she counseled a woman who went through an abortion they often felt guilty because they did not consider the consequences often; they felt a in their life (Welch). Another instance was where Mrs. Mestraud, went through an abortion and she said, “I feel like a murderer,…” After the abortion Mestraud said that she couldn’t talk to anyone. It is evident from these instances that abortions can cause people to feel remorse for their actions.
The other reason I am against abortion is that it‘s illogical and immoral. I believe that abortions occur...
