Extracts from this document...


Ashley Dillard September 7, 2007 Argument One Abortion is an extremely controversial issue and one that can arouse very strong feelings on both sides of the debates. Those who support abortion rights argue that it's a woman's choice what to do with her body. Yet the unborn baby inside a woman is a living being, and terminating that pregnancy is equivalent of murder. One doesn't have the "choice" to commit murder, right? Abortion is ethically wrong, and laws prohibiting abortion help to keep people from playing God for selfish reasons. Abortion is a form of murder and demeans the value of human life. When a pregnant woman feels a kick in her belly, she doesn't say "Oh, the fetus kicked," she says "The baby kicked." Yes, after conception there is a real human being waiting to enter the world. Why should taking someone's life when they're in the womb be any different than taking their life when they're a baby in the crib? ...read more.


Many women who have abortions in their younger years end up living the rest of their lives in perpetual guilt. Even if that women doesn't consider it murder at the time, that may change as she matures. Also, let's not forget that there are two parents of every aborted child. The father may feel just as guilty however, even if he wants the child, he has no choice if the mother chooses abortion. If looked at the religious aspect, God gave the mother an opportunity to have a baby for a reason and she shouldn't throw that chance away. Once abortion takes place, women will always wonder what if, and feel guilty for the rest of their lives about the child they could have had. Just maybe the woman has become pregnant despite all birth control attempts because the child is destined to do something great. ...read more.


Young women in their teens are right to be concerned that they're not ready to effectively raise a child. However, if that is the case, there are plenty of wonderful people out there who are. Not only would the young women be bringing a valuable life into the world, she'd also be making the dream of a childless couple come true. In conclusion, the procedure of abortion is very gruesome. Have you ever seen the results of an abortion? It is scary. Maybe if the results of abortion were more widely discussed then it might change the way people think and feel about the topic. Maybe if people really knew what happens to their baby, they would consider it murder too. Just think that of all the lives people could change if they were more conscious about their actions. So rather than allowing this wretched and cruel act to continue while there are so many decent and better options, help the people understand. Terminate abortion, allow the children to live, save people from the unexpected pain and shame that follows abortion. ...read more.
