Abortion Is The Taking Of Human Life

Decent Essays

I believe that William H. Pryor said it best when he said, “I believe that abortion is the taking of human life.” I am totally against abortion, in my opinion abortion is the same as murder. The only abortion that I am not against is if it is a medical descion for the mother and the doctor advise the abortion as the only way of saving her life. Like Michael Baumgartner said, “ I would, if checking boxes in a questionnaire, say I would oppose abortion except when the life of the mother is in danger.” There are so many other options out there other than abortion, such as adoption, co-parenting, single parent, placing guardianship to a family memember friend or using a type of contraceptive. Weigh out the option before leaping into abortion.
I believe that when a woman or man, cannot lay blame all on the woman, lay down and engage in sexual activities without using any type of contraception they are being very irresponsible. Kathleen Hanna said, “In 1985, I was living with my sister in Virginia, and since I was still in high school, I worked at McDonald's to save money to get an abortion. It sounds really terrible, but it was the best decision I ever made. It was the first time I took responsibility for my actions. I messed up, had sex without contraception, and got pregnant at 15.” I don’t believe that is taking responsibility for her actions, she knew there was a chance of creating life. Taking responsibility would have been giving birth and raising her baby.
