Abortion should be illegal

Introduction

ABORTION SHOULD BE ILLEGAL No matter what pro-abortion thinkers may say, abortion has never solved any woman's problems. Moreover, abortion pits women against their children by completely ignoring the very real rights of the fetus. Abortion leads directly to a disregard for human life and to the establishment of a culture of violence, breaking peace of society. Abortion increases a women's risk of breast cancer harmful to teenagers. Also abortion is a murder by a selfish choice, irresponsibility of mothers and fathers and to destroy one's ability to love. Nevertheless abortion is immoral. Abortion rights harm society therefore abortion should be illegal. Abortion increases a women's risk of breast cancer harmful to teenagers. Numerous studies show that women who have had abortions have an increased risk for breast cancer, maintains Joel Brind in his viewpoint in Health Magazine issued last week (Brind is a professor of biology and endocrinology at Baruch College of the City University of New York). ...read more.

Middle

Mother Teresa is the founder and mother superior of the Order of the Missionaries of Charity, which provides services to needy people around the world. Her viewpoint is excerpted from a speech she gave at a National Prayer Breakfast in Washington, D.C., on February 3, 1994. Mother Teresa said: "Those who choose abortion are making a selfish choice. Abortion destroys one's ability to love" she contended, "Because people who choose abortion do so to avoid the hurt that unselfish love of their children would require". The greatest destroyer of peace today is abortion, because it is a war against the child, a direct killing of the innocent child, murder by the mother herself. And if we accept that a mother can kill even her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another? How do we persuade a woman not to have an abortion? As always, we must persuade her with love and we remind ourselves that love means to be willing to give until it hurts. ...read more.

Conclusion

Nearly all abortions are performed for so-called social reasons: the mother is poor, immature, unmarried, or afraid that a baby might change her life for the worse. By one estimate, reasons such as these account for nearly nineteen out of twenty abortions. To be sure, these are real concerns that certainly do affect a woman's ability to raise a child. Nevertheless, asks one commentator, "under what other circumstances would we accept the idea that one person has the right to kill another person to solve his or her social problems?" Moreover, many of these problems are reparable. Adoption is always mentioned, is a realistic goal for those who truly cannot manage to care for a child. There is always another way to save a life than to kill innocent child. Yes, Abortion leads directly to a disregard for human life and to the establishment of a culture of violence, breaking peace of society. Abortion increases a women's risk of breast cancer harmful to teenagers. Also abortion is a murder by a selfish choice, irresponsibility of mothers and fathers. Nevertheless abortion is immoral. Abortion rights harm society therefore abortion should be illegal. ?? ?? ?? ?? Giang Tran 5/1/2007 1 ...read more.
