To Save a Life

Life is precious. It is an amazing phenomenon that has made this planet one-of-a-kind in the entire galaxy (at least so far as our knowledge goes at present). Abortion is strongly criticized by those with strong religious beliefs as they believe that life is a blessing from God. Any attempt to destroy or modify a life is seen as meddling with the powers of the Almighty. As an advocate of pro-life, such arguments are strengthened by stating that a life begins at conception, which I also believe to be true. Hence abortion is tantamount to homicide. All Pro-life advocates also believe that given forth the argument that the widespread acceptance of abortion may help it to be used as a form of contraception. Also, pointing to the medical complications and post abortion syndrome associated with an abortion. It is my strong belief that a women who demands complete control of her body should also shoulder the responsibility of preventing an unwanted pregnancy. May the conception be a result of an unplanned pregnancy, rape or incest, aborting the embryo is equivalent to punishing the unborn child for no fault of its, which is not right.

Abortion - Pro choice or Pro life? This is a debate that never seems to come to an end. While pro choice stance supports giving a woman the legal right to make decisions regarding fertility, pro life opposes such an action saying that carrying out an abortion is violating the sanctity of life. Pro choice refers to the freedom that an individual has to decide one's course of life with respect and support from others. It is the responsibility that one has towards one's own life and the right to decide the course one's life should take. I would like to submit that those on either side are honest, caring, and genuine people. I know that this fact alone will be a stumbling block to those of you who read this but everyone has a choice in life...
