Abortion, why does it exist? By: A. San Pedro

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

-Mother Theresa

Abortion is defined as deliberately destroying of a human pregnancy, basically related to murder but expected in time, mainly the first 28 days of pregnancy. Abortion is a choice between deciding your child’s life to be spared or killed while its body is being developed inside the mother’s womb. How does it work? To sum it up they remove the embryo which has the child inside, then they kill it just like that; but during this operation women must follow a set of requirements before heading to the operation. They must not eat, drink or smoke, 6 hours before the operation, must bring your referral letter, blood group card and an arrangement to drive back home.

Why give abortion to a child so innocent? Well there are many reasons that are quite traumatizing in my eyes and some that have such a bad taste.

Women who are raped are left with a decision to spare or kill their future child which is a complex issue and a problem to the Catholic Church and the ethics of religion. Although it doesn’t put others into an emotional breakdown but woman who are affected by this problem are left traumatized or emotionally sick.

Education is personally private for a young teenager to bear with. Teenagers ageing 17 to 18 are in the stages of graduation but if pregnancy comes into the way, they are forced to skip school and end to support the child instead. The Government then funds you and your child, plus given advice from veteran parents on how to handle their own child.

According to Exodus Chapter 20:30: “The Ten Commandments” tells the story of Moses travelling to Mount Sinai alone to receive the gift of God, The Ten Commandments is basically the word of God written in 2 stone slabs by his hand. One of the Ten Commandments says: “Thou shall not murder” explaining that you shall not kill whether a man, woman or child with any type of reason since they are God’s creation and murdering it means that God’s piece of creation was a waste.

The Catholic Church refuses the act of abortion since it kills a child and ends up as murder. According to the Bible, the Book of Numbers in the Old Testament says little bit of Abortion, it is an ordeal of jealously that has been administered by a priest of a wife whose husband thinks that she is unfaithful of her future child.

Abortion

A full description of abortion.

From the Bible’s sources Genesis 1:28, God commanded that our first parents will “Be fertile and multiply” Why did he do that? Because God himself is fertile. Another Bible reference Genesis 4:1: When the first mother brought forth the first child, she exclaimed, “I have brought forth a man with the help of the Lord

God created us with his hands, he gave us personalities, gave us gifts, life, knowledge, willpower and love. If we had a chance to breath in this world why can’t we let others live? This is my question to you.

Mother Theresa quotes one thing about Abortion:

“I feel the greatest destroyer of peace today is ‘Abortion’, because it is a war against the child… A direct killing of the innocent child, ‘Murder’ by the mother herself… And if we can accept that a mother can kill even her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another? How do we persuade a woman not to have an abortion? As always, we must persuade her with love… And we remind ourselves that love means to be willing to give until it hurts…”

-Mother Theresa
