Abortion should not be used because it destroys lives



is the intentional termination of a pregnancy after conception.

abortion is legal but should it be
Abortion is legal! But should it be??
  • Abortion has been legal in the United States since 1973. The Supreme Court ruled in Roe V. Wade that women have the right to make medical decisions about their own bodies. Some people support abortions their defense is the embryo is not a person, but I disagree my defense is it may not be a person now but eventually it will.
is abortion right at any time
Is abortion right at any time?

I feel the only time abortion is right is if the is a case were a girl has been raped and she became pregnant.

  • I was in that situation once up on a time but abortion NEVER crossed my mine. I don’t want to judge anybody but in my eyes ABORTION is wrong.
  • I was sixteen when I was found out I was 2 months along when my son was born I was 17 thing were complicated, but it is true when they say good things come to those who wait, I now no its true , My son is nine months old and very healthy, we have our own house and care it is just me and him. Watching him grow and smile everyday makes me very happy. “He makes life worth living.”
