Thirty percent of women have people have committed a murder by the age of 45. That’s three of every ten women have had an abortion by age 45 according to plannedparenthood.org. This issue has been debated frequently but, only one question remains. 

Should abortion remain legal? A question with an answer that is yes or no. Murdering a person who didn’t ask to be in the position that they are in is highly immoral. 

You might ask yourself how people are living with doing such an awful thing? Often times before making the decision to take away the “could have been” required. Webmd.com says your choices are “Have a baby, and support and raise it until adulthood. Have a baby, put it up for adoption. Abortion.”

It’s rather blunt but taking an innocent life was never looked at as something sweet. The baby didn’t ask to be there, and the fact that it could have been prevented makes a bold statement in itself. Abortion is taking away the unknown, the what could have been and also a murder. Who knows what that baby could have been.

    Dear Kevin,
    While I understand that abortion is a controversial topic, I don’t think it is fair to make the claim that 30% of women “have committed murder” by the age of 45. I think you have made you position on the issue quite clear, but it seems rather judgmental. As a woman, I value my ability to choose to have an abortion or not should that situation present itself in my life. I think this issue is not as cut and dry as you have made it out to be, so I would urge you to look into the other sides of this argument before you accuse so many people of murder.

    Dear Kevin,
    Thank you for sharing your opinion, however this is much more than a black and white issue. You fail to mention women who are most likely going to die if they don’t terminate their pregnancy, or women who are raped and are carrying their rapists baby. I respect your opinion and thoughts, but I also believe that women should be able to choose what’s best for them and their own bodies. If you don’t like abortions don’t get one, but women should be given the option to choose.

    Dear Kevin,
    You bring up an interesting topic, and I agree with you. Abortion really is, in my opinion, wrong. I know that everyone is entitled to their own opinion but sometimes it is strange to think that this topic has become such a large debate. I think adoption is a much better option when compared to abortion. However, I am not a female, so perhaps I do not understand the full magnitude of this situation. This is just my opinion on the matter. Thanks for your post!

    Dear Kevin,
    I like and agree with what you said in your post. You make a very valid point about abortion being wrong and inhumane. Your post was very well written and I appreciate someone who is willing to show their views about this difficult subject.

    I personally think that abortion is bad and should be illegal. It’s not the baby’s fault that the parent can’t take care of the baby so why should the baby have to die. I think the parent should avoid abortion and give it up for adoption. Thank you kevin for the information you provided.
