Unusual Situations a. Rape – Still not baby’s fault b. Incest – Hard to prove Throughout this debate we have shown you the ugly side of abortion, the truth. Abortion is the unnecessary murder of an innocent child because he or she has become an inconvenience in someone’s life. Our country was founded upon the idea of equality and independence. In our Declaration of Independence it claims that all men are created equal, each with certain unalienable rights, including life. We have evidence that human life begins at conception and that the zygote is a separate entity from the mother.
Under these grounds we demand that abortion be declared illegal, save for special circumstances. The eight amendment of the constitution protects citizens from cruel and unusual punishment. Abortion methods are completely unconstitutional. It is obvious that fetuses feel pain and react in a manner to avoid pain. These abortion practices must be outlawed.
A key point to remember is that the mother also faces health risks. Her risk of breast cancer increases greatly. More than twenty percent of mothers who had an abortion develop Post-abortion Syndrome. Abortion is not only a danger to one life but two. From a religious standpoint we know that Jesus loves every one of us equally no matter what stage of life we are in.
In the Bible it tells us that He forms us in our mother’s womb, making each of us unique. We have numerous testimonies of women who have had abortions. They completely regret having the abortion and still suffer trauma from their experience. Even Jane Roe in the infamous Roe V Wade case has openly regretted having the abortion and starting this inexhaustible war. The statistics cannot be overlooked.
Over 1.5 million abortions occur in the United States every year. More than 95% of these are for birth control reasons. The woman and her mate could not handle the responsibility for their child. If not for their irresponsibility in the first place then an innocent life could be spared. There are alternatives to abortion.
The best is adoption. Over 200,000 couples are waiting to adopt a child each year but the availability of babies is less than 25,000. Releasing a child, unwanted by you, to an adoption agency you can save a life and make a couple’s dream come true. This was no one loses. This choice also teaches the mother responsibility because she has to carry her baby to full term. Abortion is not the only choice.
This war over abortion has been waging over thirty years now. Both sides are tireless and fighting as furiously as they possibly can. One cannot help but be reminded of the anguished comment of a condemned Nazi judge, who said to an American judge after the Nuremberg trials, ” I never knew it would come to this.” The American judge answered simply, “It came to this the first time you condemned an innocent life.” Social Issues.
