One of the most commonly fought arguments today is if abortion is either a right or a wrong thing for a woman to do. Abortion is the removal of an embryo or fetus from the uterus (which is where the embryo/fetus matures) in order to end a pregnancy in a woman. Some people feel that abortion is wrong and call abortion murder of innocent children, while others feel that abortion is only the removing of cells in a woman's body, preventing a baby from forming, because they feel that the embryo/fetus isn’t even a human being. I personally feel that abortion is wrong for many reasons. For example, that life begins at conception and that abortion is murder and goes against God’s morals.

At Procon.org, it has been stated that, “Upon fertilization, a human individual is created with a unique genetic identity that remains unchanged throughout his or her life.

If these factors are used by the law to determine death, why can't they be used to determine life?” If you think about it, a woman doesn’t have two brains, two heartbeats, two different DNA’s, four legs, twenty fingerprints, and so on. So this definitely means that the baby is a human being at conception. So therefore, wouldn't this baby also have its own human rights and thus abortion should not be legal? Does not the baby's life matter as much as the mother’s life matters? Dr. Joseph DeCook, executive director of the American Association of Pro-life Obstetricians and Gynecologists, says, “But we’re not talking about pregnancy, the question you have to focus on, is when does meaningful, valuable human life begin? That’s with the union of the two sets of chromosome. You have a complete human being that begins developing.” And since there is another human life at stake besides the woman, then shouldn't the woman suffer the nine months of pregnancy to save that life rather than having an abortion? And if the woman was to go through with the abortion, there is a higher risk of psychological damage to woman than their is to women who don’t have an abortion. If the woman didn’t want the child, then the child should be taken in by the many who want to adopt a child whom haven’t been able to because of the millions of aborted
