Abortion is a topic that is very hard for me to talk about. It is one of those subjects that when people talk about it, conversations can get heated easily. Abortion is the act of using various types of procedures to kill a baby in the mother’s womb. This can take place anytime during the nine months of pregnancy, although most abortions are completed in the first trimester of the pregnancy. I completely disagree with the killing of an innocent baby just because it may be inconvenient for the mother at that time in her life. At the same time, on rare occasions abortion may be the only option to save the mother in a life or death situation.

I really would have hoped to talk about it more so I could understand why some people believe abortion is the best alternative. There are other options that can be considered before making the choice to abort a fetus.

Since 2010, state legislatures have passed more that 250 laws restricting abortion clinics and their doctors.

There are only three of these clinics in Alabama; they are located in Huntsville, Montgomery and Tuscaloosa. This limits the availability of care to some people who are unable to travel to these cities because of transportation or finances.
Be that as it may, I continue to feel very strongly about the subject of abortion. As a Christian, I believe that for me, there would never be a reason to abort a baby. However, I realize that in certain cases abortion may be the only way for the mother to live. In Job 10:8-12 it says “Your hands shaped me and made me. You gave me life.” Abortion takes away the life which is a truly wonderful gift from
