Abortion
Leader of Indian Independence Movement, Mahatma Gandhi once said, “It seems to me as clear as daylight that abortion would be a crime” (Gandhi, Mahatma). Federal law has given women the right to kill their children through abortion. Since the ruling of the Roe v. Wade in 1973, 58,586,256 (or close to 59 million?) children in America have lost their lives before they ever have the chance to protect themselves. In 2015 alone, 1,058,400 children were killed in the United States, and 43,800,000 world wide by abortion. The fight against abortion is the bloodiest war in world history.

(When Does). As soon as the sperm makes contact with the egg, they mix and a cell is formed. Inside that cell is all the genetic make-up that a child needs to grow and live. The child already has its sex, hair color, eye color, and the rest of it’s DNA. Every abortions stops measurable brain waves. If someone is pronounced dead when his or her heart stops beating, then

Each one of these myths have been exploded by research and hard data.
Research has shown that “one million illegal abortions” is simply a guesstimate drawn from less than reliable data from a few small or unrepresentative sample studies going back to the early 1900’s. Thirty-two years prior to Roe v. Wade the average number of illegal abortions occurring was 98,000 (Adamek, Raymond J). Although this is still a huge number it is less than 10% of what the pro-choice movement would want you to believe, and it is less than 8% of the 1.3 legal abortions that occur every year. By the Supreme Court legalizing abortion, they have cause 13 times as many deaths of unborn children and has exposed 13 times as many women to the risks of

    A heartbeat can be detected at the earliest of eight weeks. Therefore, the mothers getting abortions around fourteen weeks via the “abortion pill,” are literally murdering their child. They have no punishment besides the harmful and possibly permanent side effects of an abortion. Those side effects do not come close to the brutality of jail. I am a firm believer that mothers who end their child’s life through abortion, should have to serve jail time.…
