damage of the cervix, continuing bleeding, and the ability to have no children in the future. One of the studies shows the women who have abortions had mental problems before that pregnancy or went for counseling before having an abortion (Leask, M. 2014). The following disorders were included: mood disorders (major depression, bipolar disorder); anxiety disorders (panic disorder, generalized anxiety disorder); substance use disorders (alcohol/drug abuse and dependence); (ADHD, oppositional defiant disorder); (Wittchen,1994). Abortion violates feminist principles, and does not liberate women but enslaves them to guilt and shame. It also lets men get away with the responsibility for doing their part in taking care of the child. For example in some cases abortion may be considered in cases of incest and possibility rape. But the fetus is still a human being as facts will show. In conclusion you’re still disposing of the fetus which is against most religions and is morally wrong. Having an abortion is morally wrong. Exodus 20:13 “Thou shall not kill” rings true for many religious church groups and pro-lifers. If the fetus is considered a living human being at as early as 5 weeks, abortion is an example of killing and terminating a life. So committing abortions is morally and legally wrong (Leask, M. 2014). The are many methods of birth control and abortion shouldn’t be one of them. But in this case the bottom line is hurting a mother and taking a human life is wrong. The fetus can be considered a human being as early as the heart beat is detected sometimes at 5 weeks; we need to take into account women’s health as well as our moral stance on abortion. So here are reasons to be pro-life and be firm about it, so to summarize. Abortions are wrong and should be illegal because the fetus is a human being, we need to take the mental and physical health of the women into account, and because it’s not humanly right and killing is religiously wrong.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
