Abortion Equals Murder

Abortion equals Murder

It is my belief that abortion is in no way protected by the constitution. Back when the constitution was written, the issue of abortion was not a problem. Since then, there have been no specific amendments protecting the rights of those who wish to kill their unborn baby.

Every year in Canada, over 100 000 murders never reach the courtroom. They never reach the courtroom because they are completely legal. Although abortion continues to grow, it is immoral, harmful, and actions must be taken to stop it. When a woman aborts, she is not only killing her child but is also harming herself. Legal abortion is the fifth leading cause of maternal death. Ten percent of women undergoing abortion suffer immediate complications, and one fifth of those are considered life threatening. By having an abortion, a woman doubles her chances of getting breast or cervical cancer. Aborted mothers will also suffer many psychological effects as well. These include nightmares, hysterical outbreaks, feelings of immense guilt, and fear of punishment from God.

Abortion may seem like a quick fix at the time, but there can be many and harsh consequences. Even if a mother is willing to accept the consequences, she is taking away a human life. It is undeniable that a fetus is a human, and an individual. at the moment of conception, the fetus has a DNA that is different from his or her mother. By three weeks, the baby's heart is pumping its own circulatory system with a blood type different from its mother. Doctors measure the end of life by brain death. It is then reasonable to say that the beginning of life should be at least measured by the beginning of brain life. By six weeks, an unborn baby's brain waves can be recorded by an electroencephalogram (EEG). Between six and seven weeks, the unborn baby will respond to external stimuli, such as touching his or her face. While many people believe that a fetus is merely a mass of flesh, and is not nearly as complex as a human, this is completely untrue. By eight weeks, all of the body systems are present, and by eleven weeks, still in the first trimester, all of those body systems are functional. In fact, the body of an unborn baby is more complex than ours. He or she has extra parts, such as an amniotic sac, his...
