At what point does a baby become a human being and by what criteria do you make this judgment? If you cannot decide when, then you are risking killing a person. For many people, abortion is more of an idea than a hard reality, because they avoid the overwhelming horrible truth. An abortion is a medical or surgical procedure that ends a pregnancy, but some define abortion as a violent act that kills an unborn baby. Without any anesthesia, the baby is dismembered, torn apart, and vacuumed out of the mother. In the case of a near-term or partial-birth abortion, the baby is turned around and pulled partially out with its head still inside the mother. The abortionist then plunges a sharp object into the back of its neck and vacuums out the brain. This is not a pleasant subject. It hurts to just imagine the horror. However, we must think about it in order to gather the courage needed to end it, because it's the first and last breath of the baby.

Have you ever fallen and had the breath knocked out of you? Abortion is the person who tripped you. Many people have become cruel about abortions. Since they have already been born, abortion is no threat to them personally. "People in society have rights, and if a fetus is a person, then it, too, has rights, including the right to live."

It should not be broken down by giving women an immoral choice of abortion.

"Every 26 seconds a preborn baby dies in America." (Head, Tom) If we were able to stop legalized abortion tomorrow, most of the babies saved from abortion would be loved and cared for by their biological or own mother. Those mothers would end up being grateful for their child and glad that they did not have an abortion. There is no doubt that in twenty or so years from now a vast majority of babies saved from abortion will be glad to still be alive. Having an abortion will kill your child; it will kill a human being that just started living. For some people abortion doesn't matter because they are not the ones being slashed open and killed. They are not the ones who don't even know how life is outside their mothers tummy. Babies don't form by themselves, so they should not have to suffer for any know reason.

This same lack of value for innocent human life is the direct cause of legalized abortion. You see, perhaps most people who are for abortion are not for
