Why is it that by 21 days into the fetal development the baby’s heart begins to
beat, but yet in most people’s eyes the baby is still not “technically’ alive? That heart beat
means nothing, it doesn’t represent a human person whom God has created in his own
image and has had a plan for that baby ever since the beginning of time. To most people
that statement isn’t allowing women and their families freedom of choice. And yet that
baby isn’t given any say in its freedom to live. This paper will give many supporting
statistics towards the right to life, I am pro-life.
*Forty-nine percent of pregnancies among American women are unintended, half
of these are terminated by an abortion. Each year, two out of ever one hundred women
aged fifteen- forty-four have an abortion, forty-eight percent of them have had at least
one previous abortion and sixty-one percent have had a previous birth. This means that
these women understand the joy of a baby being born, and still choose to take away their
privilege to live. They’ve carried this children before and know the happiness of seeing
their own healthy child in their arms for the first time. Why then, when they know they
are creating new life inside of them, choose to deprive their child the right to live and
experience everything life has to offer. They willingly decide to kill that child, certainly for
their own benefit.
Each year, an estimated forty-six million abortions occur worldwide. Of these,
twenty million procedures are obtained illegally.* Why are there stories on the news
everyday of people being murdered and mistreated and the culprit being sent to jail of
punished in some way for the crime they’ve committed. Yet I don’t think I’ve ever heard
on the news of a women being sent to jail for the murder of her unborn baby. It’s still
illegal, it’s the murder of a child, they are given no freedom, and the mother goes
unpunished. *On average, women give at least three reasons for choosing abortion; 3/4
say that having a baby would interfere with work, school or other responsibilities; about
2/3 say they can’t afford a child; and 1/2 say they don’t want to be a single parent or are
having problems with their husband or partner. A baby would interfere with their
“responsibilities”, one of the biggest responsibilities as a sexually active person is to use
contraceptives or discuss with their partner the consequences of having sex. If they aren’t
responsible enough to do that they shouldn’t be having sex to begin with. Adoption is
always an option. If having a child will interfere in their lives so much then they should
share the gift of a newborn with a couple whom are unable to have children of their own.
At least then the mother can move on with her “responsibilities” and the child isn’t
deprived of it’s right to live.
There are different ways to abort a baby, medical, partial-birth and simple
procedures during the early weeks of pregnancy. In September, 2000, the U.S. Food and
Drug Administration approved the abortion drug to be marketed in the U.S. as an
alternative to surgical abortion. Also called mifepristone, medical abortions are
administered within the first nine weeks of pregnancy and stops the development of the
baby and will help expel the pregnancy. Women who agree to have a medical abortion
must also agree to have a surgical abortion if the mifepristone doesn’t work. About
