In recent years, abortion has become more acceptable even though people are not understanding what really happens when you have an abortion. Others are dulling down the actual process to make it sound more appropriate. Before for court case Roe v. Wade, abortion was not allowed in 30 states and was only allowed in 20 for certain circumstances such as rape. Abortion should not be legal because it is allowing people to kill others even though they cannot make their own decision.
An abortion is given up to 3 months of a woman’s pregnancy. At 12 weeks, you are able to see the outline of the child’s body. It gains reflexes, the fingers are able to open and close, and the baby will start to squirm. Many parts of the body are developed or starting to develop at the time you are able to have an abortion. Even in just 5 weeks the spinal cord and brain are visible. Also, the heart is beating and the circulatory is working. The child is already developing. In medicine terms, a baby should be considered a human as soon as it becomes an embryo. As soon as it is conceived the embryo begins to develop.
There are several different ways to complete an abortion. Some by using a clasp, a knife, or even just by taking certain prescribed drugs. This process is able to be done so late in the pregnancy that the baby is aware of what is going on. Abortions are very cruel by the way they are performed. They are not careful or gentle to the child in any way. Nobody seems to realize how developed the child is at this point and how this could affect the child.
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations.” (Jeremiah 1:5 ESV). God created everyone for a reason. Each of us are made in God’s image and we are all of His children. He has a plan for each and every one of us. Abortion ruins the plans He has made for His children. God creates each of us to become one of his prophet. He wants all of us to have the opportunity to choose the life to follow Him.
