Abortions Should Be Illegal


What if I told you that a mother is choosing whether or not they should keep their baby? What if I told the life of someone is in the hands of someone else’s?  According to the Associated Press reported in June,2015 that nationwide the number of abortions decreased by an average 12% since 2010. CDC showed that 3,932,181 babies were born in the U.S. in 2013. In the United States, about half of all pregnancies are unintended. Of all unintended pregnancies, 4 in 10 are aborted. If we stop having abortions, we can save a life because having an abortion is getting away with murder. The only thing preventing abortions from being illegal in the definition of murder is that it’s currently not “unlawful”- Brown 2014 Why as a group of people do we have to choose who lives and who dies? Many young women over the United States are faced with the decision on whether to keep their baby’s or get an abortion. Abortion does not only affect you it also affects your child and along with your body Many women are not adviced of their choices before they have their abortions or given any time to rethink their situation. On a site called pregnancydirectory.com someone wrote anonymously wrote about her experience with her abortion and how she regrets it. She says, “I have just found out a friend of mine in the office is expecting her first child, she's 10 weeks pregnant. I'm happy for her and wish her well. However, I can't help feeling that could also be me. I can't change the past but feel awful knowing this bump she has will be yet another reminder of what I have done. Everyone’s situation is different, I accept that. I just wish I had given myself a little more time to think.”  The reason why you should care about my speech is because this is a topic that should not be taken so lightly.

Abortions should be illegal because it’s murder, a child deserves a chance at life and its harmful for your body and the baby.

Abortion is called murder by many people, and many believe when you have a child and have an abortion you’re just a mother with a dead baby. Calling abortion a “termination” or “evacuating the uterus” doesn’t change its reality as murder-slaughtering a human being with premeditated malice. Bynum, P.E (n.d) Once an egg and a sperm meet together human life is brought to earth and with nurturing and care we create these beautiful, loving human beings. I don’t understand how anyone can choose something like this without thinking of their child first. If God could hear the voice of Abel’s blood crying out to him from the ground ( Genesis 4:10), do you suppose God has missed the cries of those 57,000,000 infants who’ve been butchered in America since 1973? Bynum, P.E (n.d) Murder is the “unlawful killing of a human being” with some level of intent. California law includes “a deliberate intention unlawfully to take away the life of a fellow creature.” BROWN, K. B. (2014) What about mothers who don’t succeed with their abortion attempts what happens to the poor fetus who has to suffer. In some countries they strangle, suffocate, leave the baby to die and sometimes throw the baby away. August 5th, 2002 Ex-President George W. Bush signed a law the born alive infant protection act to prevent this from occurring. This is an Act of Congress. It extends legal protection to an infant born alive after a failed attempt at induced abortion.

Every child deserves a life to live and become something precious to every one of us. A lot of babies who died of abortions could have been future leaders, doctors and even could have been the one to discover the cure for H.I.V. Why don’t we give our children a chance or at least if you can’t handle it give it to a loving family. There are so many families who can’t have kids or even gay and lesbian couples who would give your baby a happy and loving home. No child should have their life’s ripped out of their hands because of a selfish decision made by two party’s

Women do not realize it but having abortions is bad for your body and the child because even though the baby is small, it still feels pain. The side effects are not known because a lot of women are not educated with the facts. Every women body is different, so this do not apply to everyone, but a majority of women suffer from these psychological disorders.

  • Substances abuse
  • Cancer
  • Infertility
  • Post-abortion syndrome

Sexual dysfunction

And other disorders.

Some women are often regretting their decision after they have made this choice. There are so many sites online that have women saying they regret it we need to make some kind of awareness to these women who needed some guidance. On a website called Abort73.com a 17 year old women wrote "It has only been one week since my abortion. Every day it is hard to get out of bed. Every day I think about my baby. I would be 13 weeks and five days today. It is always in my head. Every time I see a baby or a pregnant woman, I feel sick. I cannot sleep. I cannot eat. I cannot feel normal. I have never regretted a decision more than I have this one.” Many women are left depressed and hurt inside wishing they would have had their baby, and pregnant women or anyone with a child are a constant reminder of this.

So as you can see this is a very hard topic because there are some pros and cons. But I strongly believe that abortions should be illegal. With my hard work and research, I have put together the main reasons on why I feel this is wrong. It is murder, a child deserves a chance at life and its harmful for your body and the baby. I hope that this speech can change a young women’s mind who may be trying to make such a big decision. So many young women are faced with this problem, and we need to make more resources where they can feel comfortable to talk to someone about it first. Overall I am against abortion and believe it needs to be only given to women who have serious problems like being raped or molested etc. As I leave you with this quote from Mother Teresa “I feel the greatest destroyer of peace today is 'Abortion,' because it is a war against the child... A direct killing of the innocent child, 'Murder' by the mother herself... And if we can accept that a mother can kill even her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another? How do we persuade a woman not to have an abortion? As always, we must persuade her with love... And we remind ourselves that love means to be willing to give until it hurts...”
