Abortion should be made illegal. Abortion is murder, it is the killing
of an unborn baby. In today's society, regular people are not allowed to go out
and just murder someone for no reason, so why should doctors be allowed to
murder unborn babies? "Abortion is not merely the removal of some tissue from a
woman's body....Abortion is the destruction of an unborn baby." (O'Connor 93)
According to John C. Willke, president of the National Right to Life Committee,
"At the union of sperm and ovum there exists a living, single-celled, complete
human being." Therefore, according to what John C. Willke says, abortion at ANY
stage of pregnancy is the immoral taking of human life and should be illegal.
"The bible makes it clear that to God the unborn child developing inside the
womb is far more than mere fetal tissue. He inspired King David to write:
"Your eyes saw even the embryo of me, and in your book all its parts were down
in writing." (Young 25-27) The bible (Exodus 21:22, 23) has clearly stated
that a person would be held accountable for hurting an unborn baby. (Young 25-
27) Take this for example; Say a woman is walking down the street carrying a
child in her arms. Another woman is walking down that same street carrying a
child, only this woman is carrying the child in her. Both children are
dependent on their mothers, both just dependent in different ways. (Schwarz 35)
Take another example "Suppose a woman suffers a miscarriage, A sympathetic
doctor will not tell her, "You have lost your fetus"; he will say; "You have
lost your child"." (Schwarz 35) If an abortion is picked the term "fetus" is
used as a cold scientific "neutral" word which switches the persons mind from
reality, and also will flip the seriousness, and preciousness of a unborn baby.
(Schwarz 35) Can it be so possible in today's society that we "get so caught up
trying to be sensitive to the woman and her suffering that we forget the baby
