A fetus’s heart begins to beat at day 22. A tiny life is already living inside of another body! That tiny life will grow into a baby that will bring joy to its parents. Later it will grow up into an adult who might come up with a cure for the deadliest disease or save someone’s life. But what if this mother-to-be decides to interrupt this baby’s life by having an abortion? What if the person who could have come up with a cure for cancer, never be born?! Abortions should not be legalized in the U.S. Abortions interrupt innocent lives of children; cause death of the woman; or a chance of getting breast or cervical cancer.

In the Bible, God says to Jeremiah, “Then the word of the LORD came to me, saying: "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations." (Jeremiah 1:4-5). This passage declares that God Himself said that He "formed" and "knew" the baby "in the womb... before" the baby was "born". By interrupting the pregnancy, the mother murders her own child who she hasn’t even seen! But God has already seen this baby’s whole life before it was conceived. It’s heartbreaking that innocent children have to die before they even take their first breath.

Once the abortion is done, the pregnancy is interrupted. Women, who do abortions themselves, are more likely to die than the women who get it done for them at a clinic. Women, who make abortions themselves, easily get infected or scar cervix which leads to infertility. Who could have thought that a woman who had an abortion, is at a risk of death! Statistics show that over 48 million people have been killed through abortion in the United States since the Roe vs. Wade decision. (http://prolife.org.ohio-state.edu/Facts.htm).

By having an abortion, a woman sets her life under a risk of having either breast or cervical cancer! One woman in nine will develop breast cancer, and 25% of them will die....
