A pregnant woman patiently waits in an office for doctors to call her up. As she is called up, she feels very nervous and tense. She is told by the doctors to prop her legs on the bed as they get out their surgical devices. Several minutes later, she finds herself being operated for an abortion and sees her newborn being pulled out of her. Unfortunately, it is dead, lifeless, and decapitated. It is later discarded into an incinerator and the mother leaves casually to her home. This situation happens every day and it is seen as a common action like taking a walk. This occurrence should be condemned for the countless lives it has taken away. Abortion is remorseful because it is morally wrong, has negative effects, and promotes racism.
There are many reasons for which abortion is morally incorrect. For example, in the bible, Exodus 20:13 specifically states that “you must not murder” (Bible 104). Influencing the idea to this topic, anyone can conclude that murdering is part of abortion. When abortion is done, the life of an innocent person is taken away. Another reason for which abortion is immoral is because even doctors recognize that what they are doing is regretful. “Nerville Sender, M.D., who runs an abortion clinic [even stated] ‘we know it is killing, but the states permit killing under certain circumstances.’” (Williams 38). An abortion specialist mentioning that he willingly knows it is murder shows that something is wrong with this picture. The reason for abortion being approved is because of the court case Roe vs. Wade. It “effectively legalized abortion throughout pregnancy for virtually any reason, or none at all. It is responsible for the grief of millions of men and women, and the killing of millions of unborn children in the past quarter century” (Williams 20). Anyone can just waltz up to an abortion clinic and get an
abortion without anyone’s consent or reason. It is not right taking away their lives because they have no say in it. The main reason abortion is morally depraved is because it violates the rights that we have as human beings. In the declaration of independence, it states: “we hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men [and women] are created equally, that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life liberty and the pursuit of happiness…” (Williams 21-22). Analyzing this text, it is obvious to see that each human being has a right to life whether they are infant, fetus, youngling, etc. Also, when seeing the term “infanticide”, it is only making it seem less severe that what it really is (Williams 21). Doctors actually burn, poison, decapitate, or slice babies into diminutive pieces. This word makes it seem as if petting a lion is a safe thing to do. Even though abortion is morally unethical, it also comes with its consequences.
Abortion is thought to stop problems but it only causes negative effects. For example, a recent statistic showed the number of abortions...
