The term fetus is sometimes mistaken since some individuals consider it as a non-human whereas it refers to a human being during a particular stage of their life. The nature of the fetus relies on the parentage and the creation of a human is to bring forth another human being. Genetically, the fetus of a human being does not become viable during its birth or later. Since each fetus is a human being that is distinct and has it individual human traits as proved by science, it then falls under the commandment that “Though shall not kill”. Finally, abortion can be scrutinized through the legal aspect of reasoning. The sole purpose of having law is to protect the lives of human beings. Among the rights that are enshrined in every constitution is the right to life ( Kamruzzaman and Shashi 10) . Therefore, law is supposed to protect the life of every human being. Ina s much as a pregnant woman has her individual rights; the baby inside her body has its own rights as well. Law is supposed to protect the right of all individuals and not some. Therefore, it is the duty of the law to offer protection to a life that is unborn thus making abortion illegal. As a consequence, parliamentarians should be encouraged to effect the legislations which protect the lives of unborn children. As seen above, abortion is seriously wrong and should not be encouraged. The argument is that when wrongness of killing is put into consideration, killing an innocent unborn child should as well be considered as the cause of premature death and should therefore be discouraged by religious and legal entities which should make abortion illegal.
