Legalization of abortion

Legalization of Abortion

On January 22, 1973, the United States Supreme Court legalized

abortion. When the it ruled that abortion was legal, the court not only gave

women the right to choose but also gave the unborn babies a right to die.

Since that day, millions upon millions of unborn children have been ripped apart,

burned with saline solutions, and sucked from their mothers' wombs. With every

abortion that occurs another inaudible scream from the unborn child is silenced

and the rights of that child are taken away .

If someone where to be asked if murder was wrong, the general answer

would be yes. When that same person is asked if abortion is murder, the answer

may be yes, but most likely the answer is no. Why do most people think that

murder is wrong, but do not agree that abortion is murder? The reason for this

contradiction is that most people believe that the unborn infant is not a human,

but an organ or part of the woman's body, which would make the act of aborting

the child just the same as removing an appendix. This problem of when life

begins stems from the inconsistencies which come from the case of Roe v. Wade.

The Supreme Court interrupted that by the ninth and fourteenth amendments that

a woman has the right to an abortion. The court that day, however, did not rule

when a life begins for a human. If society is to assume that a fetus is a human

the second it leaves the uterus, then what is the unborn baby three minutes

from birth , a monkey. When an unborn baby is aborted, society must realize that

an organ was not taken out, but a living human being. This would make abortion

wrong because according to law, no one has the right to take away anther's life.

With many people considering the cases of unwanted pregnancy due to

rape or incest to be acceptable, they must realize that the child is not the

crime. Society's reason behind this is, why should the woman suffer from the

pain and remembrance that the pregnancy brings. Even though cases of abortion

due to rape and incest only make up one percent of the total number abortion

performed, there is no reason why 15,000 unborn babies should be murdered

annually. Why should the baby be condemned to death because of a crime that was

committed by another person. If innocent people should be condemned to death

because they are the result of the crime, then instead of imprisoning or putting

death a convicted murder we should kill one of that prisoner's family members.

If the woman does not want to have the baby they could either carry the unborn

baby until full term and give the child up for adoption, or go within twenty

four hours to a hospital and have the rapist's semen removed before conception.

The last reason why abortion should be wrong is the use of it as

genocide. With the growing technologies in the world today, society is able to

see and hear their child inside the mother. Technology today also allows humans

to find out if there is something wrong with the child or if the child is male

or a female. Many times this advanced warning can help the parents cope with the

trauma if something is wrong with their baby; however, many couples are opting

to have the unborn babies aborted rather than keeping them. The couple's logic

is that they were looking out for the child's well-being or that they did not

want a girl but a boy. If they are trying to protect their child, why do they

kill the unborn baby? God for some reason is giving them a child who is not

normal and rather then parents thinking that the child is a blessing the

parents see the child as a freak of nature. God will not have giving that child

to them if He knew the parents could not handle the child. Parents are also

using the same technology, in order to see if the child will be a certain gender.

There is nothing wrong with this, but many parents after finding out the child

does not have the gender the want abort it. Almost fifty years ago the world

stopped a man named Hitler because he was committing genocide. The reason he was

murdering millions of people was because he wanted a race of blond hair and blue

humans to rule the world. If the Holocausts were consider wrong fifty years ago,

why is not the genocide that is happening in the United States. Also the world

would be a dull place if society was made up of one gender and people with a

certain eye or hair color.

Many different reasons are given why women have abortions in this

country. Since the decision of Roe v. Wade, twenty-two million unborn children

have died. With these children dead, so are their dreams and ideas that could

have revolutionized the world. When the government allowed abortions to be

legal, they also put themselves in the same category with men like Stalin and

Hitler. The citizens of the United States need to wake up and see that the

holocausts did not end in Germany but continue today on American soil. At one

time blacks did not have rights because the were consider below white and not

citizens. America needs to realize that unborn children are also citizens and

have rights. Even though these babies can not be heard and are not able to

contact their congressmen to suggest that a law against the murdering of them

should be legalized, society should realizes they have a voice through their
