Abortion, The Killing Of A Human Being

927 words - 4 pages


There have been cases of mass murder all throughout history. Many helpless people have been killed because the are not strong enough to stand up for themselves. Mass races have punished for what they believe or what they look like. People have been killed for there gender alone. But the worst mass murder in history is happening throughout all the world today, that is the killing of the unwanted baby. Abortion has it many forms and many ways it is accomplished. However it is done, may be by suction or half-births, it is wrong and a disgraceful thing to do. Women should not have an abortion because it's killing a human being, it has adverse effects upon the mother, and there are alternatives.
One of the main statements an people justify an abortion with is that the baby is not a real person, its just a mass of cells. A fetus, small baby in Latin, is a living creature created by God. God tells us in Psalms 139:13, "For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother's womb." This is referring to the fact that we are humans from the point of conception. A very popular Children's book writer summed it up better than I could have. Dr. Seuss said," A person's a person, no matter how small."
Not only is a child a human from conception, but it has its own heart beat 18 days after conception. This simple fact makes a child a human. A doctor who is terminating a fetus is also stopping it's heart. Even though an 18 day old fetus may have a working heart, it does not pump its own blood until3 days later. So a 21 day old fetus can use its mother blood and pump it to where ever it needs to go.
The worst known fact of an abortion is that a baby eight weeks or older can feel actual pain. Most abortions are done using a suction method. This method tears the baby apart and sucks it up through a tube. This method can be used until the fourth trimester. From the eighth week to the twenty-forth week the baby can feel the pain of it being ripped apart.
Not only does the baby get harmed in an abortion, but the mother can have adverse effects. The has severe risk increase after she has one abortion. The biggest one is in the mother's next pregnancy she is 85% more likely to have a first trimester miscarriage. If a mother eventual wants a baby, and has had an abortion in the past, will have a hard time carrying one. She will most likely not be able to have another child.
Another affect on the mothers body could be...
