Abortion is murder no matter when a person believes life becomes official. This controversy will remain for centuries, however the fact that a potential life has ended before given a chance remains evidence enough for most people to understand why a person should never have a choice of whether a baby lives or dies. There are manyreasons abortion should be illegal including the descriptive and disturbing stories about how aborted babies sometime scream as they come out and the looks of pain on their faces. These facts alone should convince anyone to eliminate the idea of pregnancy termination out of their mind. 

The health threat to the mother after going through with the procedure as well as the lifelong health risks that remain should be good enough reasons abortion should be illegal. With the rising healthcare costs and instance of disease greater than the medical ability to solve the problems, continued health remains important to all people. Self induced problems such as voluntary termination of pregnancy leads to complications for future pregnancies, reproductive disease, and depression. Understanding that abortion is murder aids a woman in making healthy decisions for baby and mother. Though a mother may not want her baby, health for both remains and adoption remains a viable option. God chooses many couples to be available for adopting these children by way of impotence by one or both people. 

Many visual images are available through pro-life organizations that make it clear how horrible the decision to terminate life before birth truly is. Abortion is murder no matter when a person believes life begins. The seed that God plants should never be taken for granted or misused. These actions result in distress for not only the pregnant woman, but also her family. Though she may not tell anyone, eventually the truth reveals itself through circumstance, guilt, or mistake. Speaking with other people who have either gone through this or have a family member who had an abortion allows this woman to get in touch with the reality of her decision. One of the most important reasons abortion should be illegal beyond the fact that it terminates life is that most women have regret and life complications due to this action. By eliminating this possibility, society eliminates future problems. 

Many government programs exist in order to empower, protect, and support women with unplanned pregnancies. There are many reasons a woman may have an unplanned pregnancy, but none justify terminating the pregnancy. Understanding the biology of the developing fetus further allows for strong arguments to develop concerning why abortion is murder. So many stories describing the human characteristics of these aborted babies remain untold therefore the uneducated woman continues the growing statistics of this action. Though it is easy to envision lower-class minority women filling the statistics of abortion, studies show that the majority of women succeeding in this action are in the upper-class population. These statistics are not clear concerning the amount of rape victims. 

Empowering women concerning how to take care of as well conduct themselves in order to minimize incident lowers the statistics of rape, thus lowering statistics of abortion. Voluntary pregnancy termination remains wrong no matter how a woman gets pregnant. Taking 9 months out of a womans life does not remotely compare to the elimination of 80 years of someone elses. In addition, the responsibility a woman takes for deciding life or death of a baby remains unethical and mentally devastating no matter what type of upbringing she had. This type of education can come from pastoral influence, government programming, or strong support systems composed of family and friends. The importance of meeting other women who have walked the same path remains important in order not to feel alone. Gaining insight, ideas, and support are all important in decision making as well as livelong support of any decision. Receive my instruction, and not silver; and knowledge rather than choice gold. (Proverbs 8:10)

God calls us to be stewards of our time, talent, and treasure. Understanding that God makes no mistakes and plants the seed of a child can further influence a woman toward life even if she decides on adoption. The choice of life should be the only option. In addition, understanding that the amount of babies aborted since the 1970s could populate a small country should be good enough reasons abortion should be illegal. God blesses people in unexpected ways, however trusting that He is in control further supports and gives confidence to the woman who chooses life. Pregnancy termination is wrong from the moment of conception. God reminds women who choose abortion about their sin through a variety of life complications created by this action. These include: increased risk for reproductive related cancers, trouble with future conception, and high risks of infection due to the surgery. 

In addition to complications after the procedure, a woman runs a high risk of death during the procedure which increases based on how far along she is in the pregnancy. People advocating reasons abortion should be illegal are passionate about God, life, and health. These people know how serious of a health risk this action is for soul and body. Though no sin is unforgivable, it is unforgettable. Remaining safe in daily commutes in order to avoid unwanted instances decreases the environment for consideration of abortion. Likewise, through research a woman can fully understand how abortion is murder and make a decision toward life no matter what the circumstance of pregnancy.

      I am signing because Abortion to me is wrong no matter who the person is that is pregnant. When people say that it isnt a baby it is a "fetus" that just burns me. Watch an ultra-sound of a pregnancy, listen to the heart beat. The baby is alive and is depending on the mother to keep him/her alive until he/she can breath on its own. My opinion is if a mother doesnt want a child either keep their legs shut or put the baby up for adoption. There are hundreds of thousands of women in this world who wants a baby but cant have them on their own. Stop abortion this is murder. Oh question. I have always wondered this. How is it that abortion isnt considered murder but when a woman is killed and is pregnant it is considered a double murder. I dont get that. Think about it people It IS murder either way.
