Abortion : Just Another Name for Murder

Oct 08, 1999 616 Words
No need to state the obvious ; everyone knows what abortion is. Then why do so many people push the issue aside as if it were a piece of food? We live in a world ; a society so corrupt that to kill the innocent, the unborn, is just another part of the day. <br>

<br>The media portrays sexual intercourse as a right of passage for teenagers and do not say it does not. Any person in the United States can tell you that as soon as you turn your TV on, you are almost bound to find something containing some sort of sexuality. And yet, it is also depicted as being no big deal. As long as you use a condom, it's ok. Is this the new motto of America? <br>

<br>As more and more teens are inclined by peers and the media to have sex, the tendency to actully have sex also inclines. Commercials for condums and other contraceptives are all over the place. But what if the condum rips or doesn't work? BOOM! Someone's girlfriend gets pregnant. What does she do? Nowadays, a seems that the typical decision would be to have an abortion ; either partial birth or full term. America and society in general has deemed this inhumane act to be OK. What people don't seem to realize is that they are killing an INNOCENT human being. Yes ; no matter what you believe, no matter what you'd like to say what that woman is holding in her womb, it is a human being. <br>

<br>But what if the girl is raped you say? There are many positions on this section of abortion. Just because the girl is raped does not mean she should kill the child. No, she probably did not wish to become pregant, and no she definitely did not want to be raped but it's murder. She's killing her own child whether she wants to admit it or not. Sadly, many people do not seem to comprehend the seriousness of this epidemic. <br>

<br>Abortion is truly just another name for murder. Why doesn't America see it as such? Because no gun or knife is used. In partial birth abortion, the woman is forced into labor and once the baby is out, it is stabbed in the back of the head with scissors. It's brains are then sucks out from the back of it's head. And yes, baby's do feel pain. Asking a question so inane is ridiculous. <br>

<br>Well why is abortion such an issue you may wonder? Because some female out there may is killing the next possible Einstein. Maybe the next Shakespeare. Were they humans? Anyone can truthfully answer yes. <br>

<br>A woman walks into an abortion clinic one day and has a partial birth abortion. She walks out a few hours later, child-ridden, drugged up on pain killers, and maybe a little tired. The baby was killed and disposed of. Meanwhile another female (or male if you wish) stabbed an old man/woman to death for no apparent reason. What is the difference? Besides the age of the two victims, esentially, there is none. Two innocent human beings were killed. <br>

<br>In Harper Lee's "To Kill a Mockingbird" Atticus says "but to kill a mockingbird is a sin." Read in context Atticus means that it is wrong to kill the mockingbired because all it does is make music. It's done nothing to you so why should you kill it? The same goes with abortion. The baby has done nothing to you, so why are you killing it?
