On average, about 1.21 million abortions are executed annually from unintended pregnancies. Many people believe that a woman should have the choice to abort the life that she created. But they do not take into consideration that the word unintended essentially means accidental. Most people do not look ahead before they do something. Why should a baby’s choice of life be taken away when they did not have the choice to be created. It wasn’t their mistake that they were created. Once life is established, it should not be destroyed. Abortion should be illegal because it is a form of murder, there are lots of alternatives to abortion and many ways to prevent pregnancy, and because a woman’s physical and psychological health can be damaged in and after the process. There has been a continuing debate about whether life begins in the womb or at birth. But it should be obvious to all people that life begins at the moment of conception. Dr. Alfred M. Bongioanni, a professor of pediatrics and obstetrics at the University of Pennsylvania, testifies against a U.S. Senate committee, “I am no more prepared to say that these early stages [of development in the womb] represent an incomplete human being than I would be to say that the child prior to the dramatic effects of puberty…is not a human being. This is human life at every stage,” (NAAPC). If, from the moment of conception and on, are the stages of a human life, then at every stage is a human being. Our laws protect us, stating that it is forbidden to kill another human being. But then why are Pro-Abortionists slowly, but surely influencing how we view a human life? “Our laws should protect the unborn just as they protect the born,” (Lyons).

Juan Cortina served as a part of the irregular cavalry during the Mexican War and participated in many major battles under General Arista of the Tamaulipas Brigade. It is likely that he was very popular among his fellow soldiers, as he would later return to the region as governor.
Jose de San Martin was an Argentine liberator in South America. San Martin was considered one of the principal fighters against royalist forces in South America. He was considered a master in military strategy. This skill alone would lead him to success against the royalist forces. Jose de San Martin was born on February 28, 1778 in the viceroyalty of Rio de la Plata’. He started his career in the military as an infantryman in the Murcia regiment in southeast Spain. Although a Spaniard, between 1808 and 1811 he fought against the forces of Napoleon because of his dislike of the monarchy and the colonial system. In 1811 he resigned from the Spanish Army he sailed to Buenos Aires where he became a member of the revolutionary regime. In this new
From the foothills of Barcelona in Spain, a man came to be. Full of strength, honor, wisdom, and courage, this man was named Hernan Cortes. He, as the Spaniards would say, was a god among men. Legend says he had cat-like reflexes, and also had the mind filled with strategies. He may not have been the tallest person in the crowd, but he had the most will to achieve greatness. He is one of Spain's most influential, if not the most, conquistadors.
The Battle of San Juan was a troop led by Theodore Roosevelt. The battle was fought on July 1st, Roosevelt called it “the greatest day of my life.” He led a series of charge up Kettle Hill and San Juan Heights on his horse, Texas, while the Rough Riders followed on foot.

Spanish again suffered another horrible loss. He also fought in the battle of Maipu close to Santiago, Chile in 1818. The victory of the battle ended the struggle for Chile's independence. Along with these three main battles, he was involved in multiple battles along the Peru coastline. Because he fought in so many battles for this country, Jose was later named “Protector of Peru”. He made a rule that freed slaves and gave freedom to Peruvian Indians.

However, in 1817 Peru and Chile were big threats, from here Jose crossed the Andes and joined with Bernardo O’Higgins, a former leader of Peru. With O’Higgins help, Jose had freed Chile. In later years of 1821, Jose and Simon came together to form an agreement on how to break free from old ways and get all other forces free as well. On December 9, 1824 the last battle for independence in Latin America won their freedom for themselves and the future colonies of Venezuela, Colombia, Panama, and Ecuador. These all came together to be called Gran
Hernán Cortés was a Spanish conquistador that has greatly affected history. He conquered one of the greatest empires known to mankind, the Aztecs, and overthrew them in a matter of months. He also was one of the major factors that caused Spain to be the dominant country in the world. His discoveries have been overlooked even though he has had achievements that have effects that are still shown to this very day.
PPS 4: Jose’s family like many other families in Mexico were devoted Catholics. When the Cristero War broke out in 1926 Jose’s eldest brother Miguel, decided that he along with his friends they would gather their arms and join the war in order to defend their religion. One example of a truly devoted Catholic who joined the Cristero War was Jose Luis. Seeing the bravery of his brother, Jose also wanted to take part in the rebellion. He asked his mother for permission to join the rebellion as a soldier but his mother would not allow it as he was only a thirteen year old boy. Jose continued to ask his mother to let him go by telling her that “it has never been this easy to gain a place in heaven as it is now.” His mother would eventually give
One of the most controversial issues in society today is abortion, and as of now, is morally acceptable because of Roe vs. Wade. However, when a study taken by Minnesota reveals that women who have had an abortion have 10 times the risk of committing suicide than women who have not had an abortion, it’s time to seriously think about whether or not abortion should be acknowledged as morally right. Considered by some to be a form of murder, anti-abortion laws should apply to all women in order to prevent any emotional mishaps of the abortion victim and to save the lives of the innocent human beings not yet born.
Abortion in the United States is a legal form of murder. Each and every year over a million babies are murdered and it must be stopped now before it will continue to get out of hand each and every day. We have discussed in this essay that a fetus is a living humans and not something that can just be thrown away. An unborn child is still a child and he or she needs an opportunity to grow and live a long successful life just like the rest of us have gotten the privilege to do. Abortion cannot go on any longer. More and more live are lost every day.
