But the worst mass murder in history is happening throughout all the world today, that is the killing of the unwanted baby. Abortion has it many forms and many ways it is accomplished. However it is done, may be by suction or half-births, it is wrong and a disgraceful thing to do. Women should not have an abortion because it's killing a human being, it has adverse effects upon the mother, and there are alternatives. One of the main statements an people justify an abortion with is that the baby is not a real person, its just a mass of cells.
This is the last thing some unborn babies know before their short lives are ended. Abortion, the deliberate extermination of an unborn baby, is murder. According to Dictionary.com1, the legal term for the word murder is “the killing of another human being under conditions covered by law”. Obviously, the act of murdering a fetus in a professional setting is covered by law. So the question we should ask ourselves is this: Whose life is worthy of being saved by law and why?
With that in mind, imagine the pain felt by an unborn child as a result of the horrific procedures doctors use to complete an abortion. Among these procedures is a hysterotomy in which a child is removed from the mother’s womb and is allowed to die by neglect or by a direct act. This procedure is used specifically for late term pregnancies, which are considered as pregnancies in the second and third trimesters (Abortion… How is it performed?). Going back to a previous statement, babies positively develop their sense of pain, which is intensified, by twenty weeks. What th... ... middle of paper ... ...nsail, Paul.
"The worship of this false god, the god of abstraction, is killing us literally - - killing not only unborn children, but killing our nation and our church." The FIGO Committee for the Study of Ethical Aspects for Human Reproduction does not agree with this view. "Selective reduction of a multiple pregnancy is not an abortion procedure because the intention is that the pregnancy continues," says the Committee. In many cases, if no fetuses are aborted, all of the fetuses will die. A couple that has had their first success at getting pregnant after a long time of infertility, whether by in vetro fertilization or through sex, is not guaranteed to have a second chance at having children.
Instead, the babies die because lies have made people believe that the only possible fate for them is an abused one not worth living. In the time that it took you to read this, another twelve precious infants in America have become mere casualties. Isn’t it time the law stopped this?
It is also important to note that this line was originally written just before an act of taking a child’s life as a selfish act for one’s own fulfillment. Barrett Browning is equating Medea, who killed her children in revenge toward her unfaithful husband, with the nineteenth century society, which killed its children for personal gain and provision. Barrett Browning was obviously done tolerating malicious and violent actions towards children, and her parable-like connection in the epigraph sets the stage for the entire
Sharlene Espinosa Professor Schwartzberg Philosophical Ethics February 20, 2014 Paper 1 Infanticide Infanticide, or the practice of deliberately killing a child within a year of birth, has been practiced by cultures throughout history and all over the world. It is still considered acceptable in some countries today, especially in areas experiencing extreme poverty and overpopulation. Female infanticide is practiced more, given cultural beliefs about gender, particularly in China and India. Infanticide is also practiced when parents are aware their child will experience suffering if he/she remains alive. Although Infanticide is considered to be morally wrong because it is an act of killing, overall, there are several cases instances where Infanticide would be morally right.
Abortion is murder simply because it is killing a person. Not only is it killing a person but it is the killing of an innocent child. The idea that life has not begun until after the birth is crazy! Science shows that “At about 22 days after conception the child’s heart begins to circulate his own blood” (Ruse 2). This is proof that life is present in the womb.
Then the dead baby is removed.Believe it or not, the mother is also harmed. In Suction Aspiration, if any tissue is left inside, it’ll become infected. For Methoxotrexate Injection, another type of abortion, Methoxotrexate can produce ill side effects such as anemia, nausea, cancer, lung disease, and heavy bleeding. Just think of the mental trauma the mother is also feeling. She has the forever-guilty conscience of being responsible for her own child’s death.
Then why do so many people push the issue aside as if it were a piece of food? We live in a world; a society so corrupt that to kill the innocent, the unborn, is just another part of the day. Do you consider something with a beating heart a living creature? A baby's heart forms and starts beating in the fifth week of pregnancy, therefore, that would make abortion murder. The baby that is growing inside of you is depending on you, so when you make the choice to end that life, you are making the choice to murder another person.
