A Fight for Life In the Unites States, murder should be illegal no matter what the situation may be. In most cases this crime would be illegal, unless of course, the victim should be a helpless, unborn child. In this case murder has been justified. Murder has been said to be okay when the victim is incapable of speaking for themselves. How do you feel knowing that in some cases murder has become acceptable? How do we know that the acceptance will stop here? Many people even strongly support this terrible crime, known as abortion. Abortion is a medical procedure used to end a pregnancy and cause the death of the fetus. Since the court case Roe v. Wade was settled, American states were no longer able to restrict women from having an abortion during the first trimester of her pregnancy (“Roe v. Wade and Its Impact”). Therefore, killing unborn children has been legal in the United States since 1973. For 43 years we have allowed the murder of those unable to defend themselves. Abortion has always been a very controversial subject. The reason being would be that some do not believe the unborn child is in fact a human life. There are several different opinions on at what time an unborn child becomes considered a human. Many Pro-Choice supporters believe that the baby is not human until after the the first trimester of the pregnancy. Others believe the human life does not begin until birth of the child. Pro-Life supporters believe that life begins at conception and that everyone deserves a right to life. Abortion has become a controversial topic because all in all it is an argument over life and death. It is an argument of whether or not this human has the right to survival. That is both a huge and extremely, significant fight.

They should feel joy not terror. Mothers should feel support and love not shame and rejection. Serrin M. Foster said, “Perhaps there will come a day when an unmarried mother will not be despised because of her motherhood and when the right of the unborn to be born will not be denied or interfered with” (Foster). Families may never be complete because of an abortion and society will be missing out on a precious life and the accomplishments they could have reached. These helpless children’s lives were ripped away from them and those who are doing so are not receiving the consequences they deserve. This disturbing and vulgare act should be made illegal for both the betterment of our society and for the precious lives it takes away.
