Who says a fetus is not a human?
Abortion should be seen as a crime just like murder

Abortion; killing the weakest and most
defenseless human being or abortion, getting rid of a so-called "non-human" for
the sake of the mother and/or child? What do you think about abortion?
Is it the solution for an unwanted child?
My brother-in-law is a doctor, who has seen the
process of abortion with his own eyes. The question: "In which should I believe?" went through my
mind. As he described what he saw, I was struggling to decide whether I'm pro-abortion
"Without any anesthesia, the baby is dissected,
torn apart, and vacuumed out of the mother. I saw the arms and
legs being separated and vacuumed. In the case
of partial-birth abortion, the baby is turned around and pulled partially
out with its head still inside the mother. The abortionist then
plunges a sharp object
into the back of its neck and vacuums out the brain."
Does the not-visible denote the non-existing? What
about molecules, or what about God? Do we have to deny their existence,
because we humans can't see them?
Who says a fetus is not a human? How would we prove its not human? You
might be the
cause, and give birth to a child, but are you the one that created human?
A fetus might not look like human, or it might not
act as human, but isn't it
all were at a time? When the sperm cell fertilizes the egg, a single
cell is formed. Therefore, because the embryo has complete genetic
the male and female human parents, he is already a human being. Concluding
its human, is it right to torture human? Do you wonder if it's torturing
Does it feel pain or not?
What causes pain in us human beings and what's our
reaction? Nerves and cells are the cause and our reaction toward
pain can be crying, yelling
or etc… Just
because a fetus isn't capable of yelling and screaming "ouch" doesn't
mean it can't feel pain. It does. It actually does feel pain, just like
any other human being!
The questions "What motivates an abortionist?" "How can a doctor
see himself torturing a living creature?" pops to my mind. A doctor
is getting paid by the patient to relieve her pain. What does he/she
care about another
person's child? As long as the patient is satisfied and the child's
pain cannot be heard or sensed, why shouldn't the doctor do as what
the patient asks for?
Especially if the law supports abortion and no one can stop him from
doing it! Would the doctor ever do the same with his/her own child?
Abortion should be illegal everywhere. We should
start protecting human lives just like before (1973 U.S. Supreme
Court decision legalizing abortion).
there is any lesson to be learned from September 11, 2001, it is
that we should value and protect innocent human life even if
it is not our own. This lack of value was the direct cause of the
terrorist acts. The terrorists and those who directed them had
no value for the lives of the
flight attendants whose throats were slashed or the innocent secretaries
who frantically tried to leave those buildings." (Larry Bohannon)
A week ago, I heard a young lady give an example
of how she respects human lives: Supporting abortion, "For example, if I were raped I wouldn't do abortion
and I would look at the child as a gift from God!"
her optimism towards life, however I didn't agree that it's a
gift from God. I do believe
a person in that case shouldn't do abortion because if she
would have, she would only be transferring a criminal act that
was exposed to to another person.
If you were raped, why not punish the rapist? Why blame the
innocent child? This is only one case I mentioned. What if your
were to be born retarded?
Now does law permit abortion? Now does logic say abortion is
Is abortion the solution to the problem of having
an unwanted child? Who in this world gives the right to the abortionist?
abortion may be
way, is it the solution? No! Never! Abortion is not the solution
to any problem; it's erasing the given problem itself. You didn't
just got rid of it.
One argument of the pro-abortionist in class on
the day we were debating was that "Abortion should be legal because it would still occur even if it were
illegal." The trouble with such reasoning is that if we were to do so, why
shouldn't we legalize theft, murder, rape, kidnapping… The fact that something
is happening or will continue to happen cannot be an argument for whether it
is acceptable or moral.
Another point made by the pro-abortionist was "I
think women should have the freedom and ability to have control over their own
body!" Choice and control come at the moment of sex, not at
the moment of conception! The act of choosing to have sex is the
act of choosing to accept
responsibility for the possible consequences, i.e. conception.
Nowadays, we're all living in a society and in a community, which
we're all responsible for everything
I, certainly believe that an unborn baby is alive,
and therefore has feelings the moment of conception. Some people
is not considered
human until the period between the eighteenth and twenty-fifth
But who's 100% sure? Who knows when the soul enters the material
body of the fetus? When we are in the dark about this matter and
are unclear about when the
fetus is considered human, we cannot afford to make the bitter
mistake of killing a defenseless and innocent creature.
One option for women who are not willing to take
care of their baby is adoption. Why take away a so-called human's
life that could
us in the near
future? When are we humans going to stop being selfish and start
thinking about others?
If we can't think and care for our love ones, who can we care about?
If we don't respect human lives from the right beginning, we never
