Abortion is Murder

Abortion has been one of the most popular and argumentative topics that has still yet to be settled. Ultimately the question we can ask when trying to solve this issue is whether or not pregnant women should have the right to kill an unborn baby. Abortion is the ending of a pregnancy before birth takes place and is a moral wrong. Can we as a society call ourselves human if we allow the deaths of unborn babies to take place? Those who take the side of pro-choice or as also known as pro-abortion often use statements concerning life, humanity, human rights and freedom to support their claims. I believe abortion should be illegal because we as a society must protect the human lives that are in danger whether or not they are in their first trimester, or a fully unborn baby.

We should not be the ones who decide whether someone should have the chance to live or not. The claims that supporters of abortion often use consist of statements concerning society, when life begins, and rights of individual. Each of their claims contains no backbone support and often forget that in the end, abortion kills a life. So why do we continue to legalize this unjust law? Are we a society who believes that killing a innocent life contains no wrong?
