Introduction

English 12 Shana Ruland Mini Research Paper, Abortion Theme: Abortion is the practice of killing the weakest and most defenseless among us, unethically depriving them of the right to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness, just as slaves in captivity and the targeted Jews. Tragically, it has been ingrained within our culture, that our unborn children are routinely sacrificed on the twin altars of feminist ideology and convenience. Abortion is the practice of killing the weakest and most defenseless among us. Yet, tragically, it has been ingrained in our culture. Since the Supreme Court handed down the Roe v. Wade decision in 1973, which established the constitutional right of women to terminate their pregnancies (Wittes), some 40 million abortions have been committed in this nation. This is almost a third of the number of live babies born during the same time. At any high school graduation ceremony this year, consider that one third of the graduating class is missing. They were deprived of the right to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness written about by our founding Fathers in the Declaration of Independence. People are taken aback upon inquiring about the human sacrifices of ancient cultures. Yet, our unborn children are routinely sacrificed on the twin altars of feminist ideology and convenience. The world was appalled by the horrors of the German holocaust where six million Jews were striped of their lives. ...read more.

Furthermore, say that the evilness of drinking milk was obvious to everyone, including children. What is the best way for a minority of milk drinkers to allow their behavior to be accepted by the majority? The milk drinkers know that they cannot convince enough people to accept their position by direct argument alone. The only way to get their immoral behavior accepted would be to change the definition of commonly understood words. For example, they may begin referring to milk as flavored water. To drink flavored water is not immoral. The pro-abortion activists have foisted on us this same semantic game. They have changed the meaning of the word life. They say that an unborn baby is not alive. It is only a mass of tissue such as a tumor. Every child in America knows that this is a lie. They have changed the meaning of murder and killing. They say performing an abortion is not the same as killing a child. They have come to seem indifferent to pain, almost glib in the face of human tragedy (Sullivan). They refer to the unborn child as a fetus. Fetus is a perfectly good Latin word for fruitful or bringing forth. However, it sounds inhuman to our ears. They even removed the name of their movement from pro-abortion to pro-choice. You see it is widely believed in this country that individuals should be free to make their own choices. ...read more.

Conclusion

At first, things went sour for the North. The Confederates in the South, although outnumbered, were winning most of the battles. Then, President Lincoln appointed Grant as Lieutenant General of all Union Armies. At the time, the common practice of warfare was to rest after fighting a battle. Both sides would withdraw, not only to bury their dead, but also to recuperate and obtain supplies. However, Grant changed this practice. He was a bulldog, and his instincts told him to follow through with attack after attack. This strategy was pursued for almost a year, and it buckled the knees of the Confederate army. To end abortion, consider the need to follow the exact precise orders, apply the idea to attack repeatedly and without rest, not with lies and distortion, but with the truth given to us by God. Acknowledge up front the pain of abortion and its moral gravity (Sullivan). Life must prevail over death. If the pro-abortion forces are strong, it is because of the pro-life defensive weaknesses. By faithfulness and stubborn adherence to the truth, the pro-life activists will prevail. In a free society, the ability of a woman to control what happens to her own body will always and should always be weighed in the balance against the right of an unborn child to life itself (Sullivan). It is by God's help that they as a people will overcome this plague of abortion that has infected our land. Beyond the polarizing rhetoric, a simple message: saving one precious life at a time (Sullivan). ...read more.
