Abortion, more like Murder! …By Alex Ritchie

So What Exactly is Abortion and why they do it?

Abortion is the deliberate killing of a fetus during human pregnancy. Most people choose the path of abortion when they have a unwanted pregnancy, mostly caused from unprotected sex. Many of the people who choose abortion are usually young and can’t afford to take care of the child so instead they just terminate it. Women also choose abortion when they find out the baby has a birth defect. Should you really end a life of a future baby because of those reasons?

Why is it Murder?

I believe that abortion is Murder and many might not agree with me, Why? They believe the baby isn’t alive yet because it hasn’t been born yet, well that’s just stupid if you ask me. Tree’s and flowers are classified as living because they grow. When the Baby is in the Uterus its growing, so why do some people believe its not alive and also the baby’s heart is also beating while its in the womb. James 2:26 tells us “Since from the time of conception the child’s body is alive (as shown by the fact it is growing)”. Now that we can say that the baby is alive, we can also say the baby is being murdered.

What does the Catholic Church have to say about this?

Firstly, just to continue with what I said above, the Catholic Church is against abortion because it’s murder and we all know that one of the Ten Commandments is ‘Thou Shalt not murder’. God has created every single one of us, even the unborn baby. He planned that the baby was to be born and planned that he/she would live and planned when he/she would die. The Catholic Church believes that we should play God, for example, ends someones life before God intended to,which is what we are doing to the unborn baby.

We have already discussed how abortion is caused by unwanted pregnancy but why was the pregnancy unwanted. One example for unwanted pregnancy could be failed protective sex and why would a married couple have unprotected sex, so that means the couple were not married and we all know the Catholic Church is against sex before marriage.


My Thought on Abortion.

I agree with the Catholic Church and believe that we should not allow abortion anymore. Life is the most beautiful thing in the world and the best thing that ever happens to someone is being born so why stop the baby from not being born. How could someone even think about having a abortion when adoption is always an option. To sum up everything, abortion is a crime, it’s a sin and no one should ever think about going down that road and should try to avoid unwanted pregnancy.

 “It is a poverty to decide that a child must die so that you may live as you wish.” -Mother Teresa

“How come when it’s us, it’s an abortion, and when it’s a chicken, it’s an omelette?” -George Carlin

  1. I agree with your statement how abortion is murder as it is taking away another person’s life but to make matters worse, it is the murder of a unborn baby. I really like how the image of Mother Teresa was added, to support your points.
