Abortion: Why It’s Wrong
Abortion is a topic that is being debated intensely all over the United States right now. People are choosing sides and taking stands like never before. Abortion is a very serious topic because it involves the health of an unborn baby and the health of the woman who is choosing whether to have an abortion or to keep the baby. Unfortunately, the country is divided on this topic because of what the political parties say.
One party says that abortions are wrong and should not be allowed at all, while the other party says that abortions should be up to the mother and that the mother has a right to an abortion if she wants to have one. I believe that abortion is wrong and should never be done because children are one of the most precious things we have on this great big earth. Children bring people much joy and happiness. Also, the Bible says that God created us in our mothers’ wombs and knows us intimately, like no other (Psalm 139:13). He knows how many hairs are on our heads before we are even born (Luke 12:7). Before a child is born, there is already a God who will love the child unconditionally. We should let that child learn of the love it has received and will always receive.
I think that all of the politicians should think about their childhood and think about what it would be like if they were aborted and were not alive. By aborting a child, we will never realize what potential the child had or what a bright future the child had. Children need to be born so we can love them and guide them and help them realize their potential, which could be unlimited if it were not for abortions. Some people believe that abortion is okay if the cause of pregnancy is rape or incest, but I still hold firm of my belief of no abortions. It is my opinion that there is good in all people and someone will come along and find the baby in need and take care of that baby, whether by adoption or by other means. This means that people will need to be on the lookout for children born into poverty or under unfortunate circumstances so that they can help out.
I believe that abortions should not be allowed because children are loved by an almighty God, because children bring joy to people, and because I want to see them grow and develop their potential to be someone great.
