Abortion, should it be legal?

Abortion, should it be legal?

Trysten Heck, BHS Journalism

Abortion is murder. The killing of an innocent human being is wrong, even if that human being hasn’t been born.

Unborn babies are considered human beings by the U.S. government.

The federal Unborn Victims of Violence Act, which was enacted to protect unborn children from assault and murder.

States that under federal law, anybody intentionally killing or attempting to kill an unborn child should be punished for intentionally killing or attempting to kill a human being. 

Life begins at conception, so unborn babies are human beings with a right to life. 

Upon fertilization, a human is created with a unique genetic identity that remains unchanged throughout his or her life. 

Abortion also defies the word of God, the Bible does not draw a distinction between fetuses and babies.

The word brephos is used in the Bible to refer to both an unborn child and an infant.  By the time a baby is conceived, he or she is recognized by God 

In (Jeremiah 1:5) it says, “Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee.” 

The Sixth Commandment of the Bible’s Old Testament, “Thou shalt not kill” (Exodus 20:13), applies to all human beings, including unborn babies.
