Abortion

There are two views on abortions. The pro-lifer's believe that an abortion at any time is wrong. The pro-choice's think that a woman should have the choice to abort the fetus before it becomes conscious. I am a strong believer in pro-life. I feel that an abortion of any kind is murder and should be treated as such. Just because the fetus is not born yet does not mean that it does not have just as many rights as a full grown human would have. In the Scott, Foresman Advanced Dictionary, Thorndike and Barnhart define abortion as "the removal of a developing embryo or fetus from the uterus to terminate a pregnancy before the birth, resulting in death of the fetus." Since 1973, when abortion was legalized, 1.6 million abortions per year have been induced. That is over 30 million total in only 29 years. Hitler is said to have killed 6 million Jews. If he was so bad, we are 5 times worse. Along with demoralizing people, abortion also goes against the Constitution of The United States.
The 14th amendment to the constitution states that "no state shall make or enforce any law which shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privilege of immunities of citizens of the United States; Nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of the law; nor to deny any person within it's jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws." When we kill a fetus, we are failing to give that child the chance to life, liberty, and property. Therefore we are not abiding the constitution, the most important document in our country. The constitution along with God are the two things this country is based on.
When God created man, he created us in his image. When we take the life of an unborn fetus, we are killing his image. By killing God's image, we are sending out a message that it is alright to abuse and kill the children of our country. Since abortion was l…

Abortion

Abortion is culturally and ethically a controversial issue. Many questions still remain unanswered. Is abortion the same thing as murdering the child or is abortion not murder because the fetus is not really a human? Is abortion more an issue involving a women's ability to control her body or an issue involving the life of fetus? There are two aspects of this issue. The people against abortion consider it as a murder of an unborn child, for them it is taking away the right to life from a defenseless creature. But on the other hand the supporters of abortion demand that it is the question of the freedom of a woman. She has the right to decide whether or not to continue the pregnancy. Hence the controversy is between feminism and the right to live. But the question here is can any of one of it be given an absolute freedom over another.
The anti-abortionists argue that fetus should be given the right to life. They believe that the right to life is the most important right of every human being. Hence the fetus cannot be deprived of that right. According to them the fetus has metabolic activities hence it should be considered living and should be given the basic rights of human being. As mentioned in the section I of the fourteenth amendment "nor shall any State deprive any person of life". They view abortion as an equivalent to infanticide.
On the other hand, feminist argue that if abortion is banned it would be a serious attack on woman’s freedom. She will be deprived of her basic rights of freedom as mentioned under the First Amendment in the Constitution under the right to choose. They argue that fetus is not living and to protect the right of a creature that has not come to existence she cannot be deprived of her right to have control over her body.
