AbstractIn 2018 there have already been 70,000 abortions. There has only been 24 days since the start of 2018! Even vice President Mike Pence declared victory for the anti-abortion movement. “Life is winning in America,” Pence said at a gala for the anti-abortion group Susan B. Anthony List. “President Trump has been keeping his promises to stand for life. He’s literally filled this White House and agencies with pro-life leaders” (Bassett 1). In abortion cases women should not be to abort their baby for their own convenience because it only promotes murdering innocent children that have not done anything. KeywordsAbortion, Sympathy, murderThe murder of an innocent human being is injudicious, even if that human being is still in the womb. The U.S. government consider unborn babies living human beings. The federal Unborn Victims of Violence Act, which was enacted “to protect unborn children from assault and murder,” states that under federal law, anybody intentionally killing or attempting to kill an unborn child should “be charged with a second offense on behalf of the second victim, the unborn child.” The act also states that an unborn child is a “member of the species homo sapiens” (National right to life committee 1). Women have been killing innocent children in plain sight. They should not be able to kill an innocent life without getting punished, it is only encouraging others to do the same. Where does life begin? The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) just released their 2018-2022 plan, which states that life begins at conception, so unborn babies are human beings with a right to life and deserve protection. The introduction says “HHS accomplishes its mission through programs and initiatives that cover a wide spectrum of activities, serving and protecting Americans at every stage of life, beginning at conception” (Prude 1). When the sperm meets with the egg, a living human has formed and has different DNA than its mother and father. This individual has a fundamental right to life, which must be protected. If you kill a baby, when is it that you should be able to kill? Hillary Clinton said that you are able to kill a baby all the way to the very end. “At the very end” of an abortion would be 30-32 weeks. 30-32 weeks is when the baby is fully-formed when it can be born alive. Research suggest that at “weeks nine and ten when the baby’s teeth are already beginning to form? Its fingernails are already beginning to develop. At week 14 the heart is pumping quarts of blood through the body. At two months old the baby can turn its head and frown. The baby can hiccup. How about day 22? The heart is already beating with the child’s blood, which may be of a different blood type than the mother” (Prestigiacomo 1). So where exactly is it okay to murder that kid, because you have a personal convenience issue.Many people bring up rape, for example “what if a women is raped and gets pregnant?” If a woman is raped she should be able to abort her baby. However, only one percent of abortion victims are rape victims. It is an excuse, so they can take the marginal case and apply it to all cases of abortion. They give an exceptional case in order to try to guilt others into supporting a broad based abortion platform. They respond with “I think it’s her body and I think its her health.” These are two separate issues-sympathy for the women and sympathy of the child. When at any point does sympathy for the child come in here? We do not get to choose another human being’s death. This is not a matter of a women’s right to choose. A slave owner did not get to “choose” to hold slaves; Nazi did not get to “decide” which Jews got to live. They come back saying “It is legal, therefore it is okay.” A lot of things in human history have been legal that were totally evil. Hillary Clinton said, that the minute before a baby is born, you should be able to drag it by the feet out of the mother, except for the head, stick a scissors in there; ram it into the baby’s skull; rip the skull open; suck the brains out, crushing it; and then pull it out. How about some sympathy for the baby? Some may say brain waves do not start until 20 weeks. Are brain-dead people still alive? Would you kill someone in a coma because they are brain-dead, but you know they are not going to be brain-dead in 3-10 weeks? Would you pull the plug on them knowing that they are going to be fully functional? The public needs to start realizing that the baby is an innocent life and should have the same rights as us citizens. Take a second to understand that killing unborn babies for our own convenience is wrong. The government needs to pass a law to stop abortions that are convenient to the women. We need to stop abortions and shut down abortion clinics.
