"Heartless" Essay

1149 words - 5 pages

"Heartless"No matter the circumstances, abortion is morally and ethically wrong and should be made illegal. I consider abortion to be an act of murder. After only four weeks of conception the baby's heart is pumping blood, making the baby in medical terms, alive. By week six the baby begins to move. Abortions take place from five to seven days after a missed period but most happen from week six to twenty weeks, at this point the baby has developed arms, legs, facial features, and the spinal cord and heart are already performing basic functions. Women have decided on abortion for several reasons; financial problems, teen pregnancy, and other reasons of just not wanting a child or being scared. Though arguments cannot be on the fence I feel that the only time abortion should even be considered is in the case of a rape victim, which statistics show is only about one percent of all abortions. For all other reasons the couple or two that are having the baby should use either some sort of birth control and accept the consequences that could possibly happen, even if the mother has some sort of health problems.Most processes of having an abortion not only end a precious life but can also harm the mother. As the baby grows older in the womb the abortion processes change, the first option is simply taking a pill to dissolve the egg. As time passes the process changes and the next option is suction. "General or local anesthesia is given to the mother and her cervix is quickly dilated. A suction curette (hollow tube with a knife-edged tip) is inserted into the womb. This instrument is then connected to a vacuum machine by a transparent tube. The vacuum suction, 29 times more powerful than a household vacuum cleaner, tears the fetus and placenta into small pieces which are sucked through the tube into a bottle and discarded" ("Abortion Methods".web). The longer the woman waits the more dangerous the process is. By the time the baby has developed abortion options are limited and usually are still born. Later in the pregnancy, around eight months the baby sleeps ninety to ninety five percent of the time, there are studies shown that by this time the baby is actually having dreams. At this point the only abortion option given is the partial abortion technique. Guided by an ultrasound, the doctor grabs the baby by its legs with a tool call forceps. The baby is then pulled out of the womb into the birth canal where the doctor delivers then entire baby except the head. The doctor then shoves scissors into the baby's skull and opens the skull. The abortionist then removes the scissors inserting a suctioning device. The doctor then sucks the brains out until the skull collapses. The last thing the doctor does is remove the dead baby. Instead of the mother waiting a few more months she kills something made of her own flesh. Although some think abortion is the only way, they are wrong. After only six weeks the baby can feel pain, and it is alive. The baby's life is...
