It is nearly impossible to find someone who does not have an opinion on the issue of abortion, and usually his or her opinion is very strong. When people debate on the issue of abortion they become frustrated, and tend to become even more committed to their position, of pro-life or pro-choice. Both sides of the issue make good cases; an unwanted child is a horrible thing and yet the thought of terminating something that, if left to nature, would become a person is a thought not even the hardest heart could bear to think about. So where is the argument? Those who are pro-choice say that the decision of aborting an unwanted child should be left to the mother; otherwise it is an infringement of her rights.

The typical method was to poison the mother or physically abuse her abdomen. On January 22, 1973, the Supreme Court made abortion legal for the entire country, with a few limited provisions in the law. This is another reason why abortion should be illegal. Lastly, there are some stories, all of which are true, that most defiantly show why abortion should be illegal. Now if this young girl chose to abort her pregnancy, the world would never have been introduced to Jesus Christ. Wade has murdered over thirty million innocent babies; it continues to take an estimated one and a half million each year. Not only did this strong child survive, she suffered for eighty minutes until finally giving up and dying. So what right does a mother have to take the life of her unborn child away In the "Ten Commandments", from the Bible, the sixth commandment states that thou shall not commit murder. These children do not ask to be given life, but they are given it anyway because of the irresponsibility of his or her parents.
