Do you consider something with a beating heart a living creature? A baby heart forms and starts beating in the fifth week of pregnancy; therefore, that would make abortion murder. The baby that is growing inside of the woman is depending on her, so when she makes the choice to end that baby’s life, they are making the choice to murder another person.
Someone that believes in the pro-choice theory would say that the decision is up to the woman, but the person with the pro-life theory would say that it is murder no matter what the situation. Most people consider it murder to kill a baby the day after it is born. Then why would it not be murder to kill it before it is born?

There are many abortions performed each year in the United States. Seventy-five per cent of all abortions in the U.S. are performed on women over twenty years of age, but the lawmakers try to concentrate on the 186,000 teens that have an abortion each year. In 1990, there were nearly 400 abortion bills were that were introduced to forty-one legislatures. So far, as many as twenty states have passed laws that require a teenager to have a parents consent before having an abortion. This may help reduce the number of abortions each year. The people that passed these bills feel that maybe the parents will feel differently about the situation and be able to talk their child out of it.
Twenty per cent of teens that are sexually active do not use any form of birth control. These are the teens that end up getting pregnant and getting an abortion. If these girls would use some kind of contraceptive it could stop a lot of the abortions performed each year. If people think about it, it is so much easier to take a pill then it is to be pregnant and have to decide on the life of another person. When someone feels that they are responsible enough to participate in sexual activity, they should also feel that they are responsible enough to deal with the consequences that follow.
Abortions are often considered “the easy was out.” I feel that abortions are just selfish. There is no easy way out. I could not imagine living with the guilt of taking another’s life, especially the life of something that I created, and that is dependent of me. There are so many people out there that wish they had the chance to get pregnant. If they really feel that you are not ready to be a parent then the person could at least give the baby up for adoption, and make their life, that baby’s life, and the family adopting the babies’ life a lot happier.
Many of the people that have abortions take advantage of it and use abortion as a form of birth control. I can understand that having a baby might ruin someone’s life, or so they think, but what about the life that you are ruining when they have an abortion. In a way, it is taking away a piece of them, a piece of them that they will never be able to get back. What if the baby that they killed could have grown up to be the president of the United States, or discovered a cure for a disease that they might have when there are older? There are so many things that need to be considered.
The procedure of abortion is very gruesome. Have you ever seen the results of abortion? It is scary. Maybe if the results of abortion were more widely discussed then it might change the way people think and feel about the topic. Maybe if people really knew what happens to their baby, they would consider it murder too. Just think that of all the lives people could change if they were more conscious about their actions.
