The first reason why believe abortion should be illegal is it kills an innocent child. Most women find out they are pregnant around five to six weeks. By that time the developing child has eyes, a brain, a spinal cord, heart, and other organs begin to form (Fetal Development: The First Trimester). There are seven different ways an abortionist goes about the procedure with the abortion, it Just all depends on how far along the women is. (Abortion Methods) says” the most common method of abortion is during the first 12 weeks of pregnancy Is called Suction Aspiration”.

A suction curette (hollow tube with a knife- edged up) Is Inserted Into the womb ( Abortion Methods). This instrument is then connected to a vacuum machine by a transparent tube”. “The vacuum suction, 29 times more powerful than a household vacuum cleaner, tears the fetus and placenta Into small pieces which are sucked through the tube into a bottle and discarded (Abortion Methods). The second method is called Dilation and Curettage This method is similar to the suction method with the added insertion of a hook shaped knife (curette) which cuts the baby into pieces (Abortion Methods).

The pieces are crapped out through the cervix and discarded (Abortion Methods). The third method Is called Dilation and Evacuation. This method Is used up to 18 weeks’ gestation. Instead of the loop-shaped knife used in Dilation and Curettage abortions, a pair of forceps is inserted into the womb to grasp part of the fetus (Abortion Methods). The teeth of the forceps twist and tear the bones of the unborn child (Abortion Methods). This process Is repeated until the fetus Is totally dismembered and removed (Abortion Methods). Usually the spine must be snapped and the skull crushed in order to remove those (Abortion Methods). The fourth method is called Salt poisoning (Saline Injection). Used after 16 weeks (four months) when enough fluid has accumulated (Abortion Methods). A long needle Injects a strong salt solution through the mother’s abdomen Into the baby’s sac (Abortion Methods). The baby swallows this fluid and is poisoned by it and it also acts as a corrosive, burning off the outer layer of skin (Abortion Methods). It normally takes somewhat over an hour for the baby to die from this (Abortion Methods).

Within 24 hours, labor will usually set In and the mother will give birth to a dead or dying baby (Abortion Methods). There have been many cases of these babies being born alive. They are usually left unattended to die (Abortion Methods). However, a few have survived and later been ‘OFF Abortion. This form of abortion uses chemicals developed by the Option Pharmaceutical Co. Which cause the uterus to contract intensely, pushing out the developing baby (Abortion Methods). The contractions are more violent than normal, natural contractions, so the unborn baby is frequently killed by them (Abortion Methods).

Some have even been decapitated (Abortion Methods). Many, however, have also been born alive (Abortion Methods). The sixth method is called Hysterectomy or Cesarean Section. Used mainly in the last three months of pregnancy, the womb is entered by surgery through the wall of the abdomen (Abortion Methods). The technique is similar to a Cesarean delivery, except that the umbilical cord is usually cut while the baby is still in the womb, thus cutting off his oxygen supply and causing him to suffocate (Abortion Methods).

Sometimes the baby is removed alive and simply left in a corner to die of neglect or exposure (Abortion Methods). The last method is called Partial- Birth Abortion. Guided by ultrasound, the abortionist grabs the baby’s legs with forceps (Abortion Methods). The baby’s leg is then pulled out into the birth canal (Abortion Methods). The abortionist delivers the baby’s entire body, except for the head (Abortion Methods). Then the abortionist Jams scissors into the baby’s skull (Abortion Methods).

The scissors are then opened to enlarge the skull and then the suction catheter is inserted (Abortion Methods). The child’s brains are sucked out, causing the skull to collapse (Abortion Methods). The dead baby is then removed (Abortion Methods). I do not see how anyone could do his. It is Just sick! Many women think about the abortion Just about every day of their life. This leads me to the next reason why I believe abortion should be illegal. Many women suffer with metal stress due to abortion.

Anxiety, psychological numbing, flash backs, guilt, depression is all behavioral effects that set in after abortion (Clear thinking about crucial issues). The pain from the past experience never seems to heal, even after 20-30 years down the road. (Clear thinking about crucial issues) says that abortion increases mental health risks is reasonable and scientifically accurate, rendering it misleading to suggest to women that abortion has no significant mental health risks, much less is “psychologically safer” than carrying to term.

Women facing an unwanted pregnancy often feel desperate and alone, fearing loss of their personal autonomy, destruction of their plans for the future, loss of others’ esteem, and altered relationships in addition to viewing a baby as a responsibility that they are ill-prepared to assume (Clear thinking about crucial issues). What women typically fail to see is how their decision to abort may significantly compromise the quality of their own lives and those closest to them for many years beyond the decision (Clear thinking about crucial issues).

They also frequently fail to see the many life enhancing aspects of having a child (Clear thinking about crucial issues). Women think they have no other choice, but they do (Clear thinking about crucial issues). Adoption is always a choice. Let’s says a woman was raped and had gotten pregnant. Most women would abort but why? I understand that they would not want to go through the pain of raising a child and be minded every day that they are here because of rape. So there is such a thing called adoption.

There are many people, and families that would love to have a child of their own, but can’t. Women can turn something bad, into something amazing for financially support the child, or Just isn’t ready. Adoption is the answer. People do it every day. There are many types of adoptions. Open and closed which means you are a part of the child’s life in open adoption and closed is when you are not. Abortion should be illegal because is it kills an innocent child, it causes mental issues, and omen think that they have no choice.
