Abortion has been one of the most popular and argumentative topics that has still yet to be settled. Ultimately the question we can ask when trying to solve this issue is whether or not pregnant women should have the right to kill an unborn baby.

They continue by stating that abortion is simply a process that terminates pregnancy, not a life. This is an obvious misconception since the term embryo refers to humans at particular states of development. They are not blobs in a state of development, but rather humans growing to be ready for life. This simple blob or embryo that people believe is okay to obliterate is actually already a complex form of a human. Even before the trimester stage the baby will have all its body parts needed for the rest of his or her life.

Abortions can also be done by suction, which is a bloodier and longer method than those from the abdomen. The baby is sucked out through a tube that is “29 stronger then a household vacuum” (LifeSiteNews). The hose can become blocked with pieces of the baby causing the tube to possibly hit the wall of the uterus and could potentially damage the mother. At the end of the procedure, a nurse have to put the baby back together to make sure it was all completely removed. The last method of abortion is salt poisoning though an injection. The solution is injected by an abortionist into the amniotic sac, the fluid surrounding the baby. The baby then ingests the solution through breathing killing the baby.
