Abortion by Perla Lucio c/o 15

There are lots of lives being killed right under our noses. Most of us know about it and most of us don’t like it. 

I am talking about abortion. For those of you who don’t know what abortion is it is the termination of a pregnancy. The dictionary definition is the termination of pregnancy by the removal or expulsion from the uterus of a fetus or embryo prior to viability.

An abortion can occur spontaneously, in which case it is usually called a miscarriage, or it can be purposely induced. The term abortion most commonly refers to the induced abortion of a human pregnancy. 

In some religions abortion is not allowed like Roman Catholicism, Buddhism, Sikhism, Taoism, and Confucianism. Some Protestant Christianity allows it and Judaism and Islam support abortion.

I am 100% against abortion. Who wants to lose a sister, brother, niece or nephew? No one does. I would understand if it was a miscarriage. More than 500,000 pregnancies each year end in miscarriage (occurring during the first 20 weeks). But people that have an abortion induced that’s just cruel and inhuman. You’re killing a life.

I have no respect for those who had an abortion, no matter the reason. You should not have sexual relations if you didn’t want to end up pregnant. There is always adoption have a nice family adopt your child it’s much better than killing them off and not giving them a chance to live. 

Approximately 25% of the world population lives in countries with highly restrictive abortion laws, mostly in Asia, Africa and Latin America. One woman dies every 7 minutes around the world due to an unsafe illegal abortion. Making abortion illegal or legal has no effect on the total number of abortions performed in the world.

Making abortion legal dramatically reduces maternal morbidity and mortality. Nearly 50% of pregnancies that occur yearly are unwanted with nearly ½ of those pregnant women terminating their pregnancy. In essence; 42 million choose to terminate their pregnancy with close to half of those (20 million) being illegal. 

Do you really want to risk your life to try and kill of another?
