What would it be like to die so young and so delicate? What would it be like to kill something so young and so delicate? Abortion, in my definition, is the taking of a life. I think that to take the life of an unborn just because the couple involved were too lazy to use contraceptives, is immature and quite disgusting. Basically all abortions are done because the woman simply does not want to be pregnant. In this personal essay, you as a reader will many facts on abortion and how it's wrong.
Let us begin. According to US Abortion data provided in 1995 by Planned Parenthood, there were 1.8 million first trimester abortions, a first trimester abortion is an abortion done up to 12 weeks of pregnancy. 180 thousand second trimester abortions, Second trimester or mid-trimester abortions are abortions done over 12 weeks up until 24 weeks. About four thousand required Hysterectomies; Hysterectomy is the surgical removal of the uterus and cervix. In a radical hysterectomy, the uterus, cervix, ovaries, oviducts, lymph nodes, and lymph channels are removed. Now according to these figures the United States, killed/aborted 1,984,000 fetuses. That's a big increase in the population of the United States. In my point of view I think its horrible. I enjoy children alot and thinking that there are 1.9 million children less in the world every year sends shivers down my spine. Abortion is terribly wrong.
There are fewer deaths per million abortions than per million births according to the Planned Parenthood survey of 1995. There are nine deaths per million abortion procedures and sixty-three deaths per million births. Both complications and the death rate rise with the age of the fetus. I can understand that these facts show a much better picture for abortion than carrying to term, but what about the pain that the fetus will feel? According to pro-choice physicians they believe that a certain connection, synaptic, necessary to perceive pain, for the fetus, is not formed until the twenty-eighth week of pregnancy.
