Highlighted questions PRINCIPLE:
Abortion is killing/murder; which is morally wrong. Application Who are we (humans) to deal judgement to another living being of equal standing (divinity)?
We must always give chance to life. END -Since life begins at conception, abortion is similar to murder as it is the act of taking human life.

-Abortion is in direct defiance of the commonly accepted idea of the sanctity (goodness/divinity) of human life.

-No civilized society/religious belief permits one human to intentionally harm or take the life of (kill) another human without punishment, and abortion is no different. -There is a preacher and wife who are very, very poor. They already have 14 kids. Now she finds out she is pregnant with her 15th. They are living in tremendous poverty. Considering their poverty and the excessive world population, would you consider recommending abortion?

-The father is sick with sniffles, the mother has TB. They have 4 children. The first is blind, the second is dead. The third is deaf and the fourth has TB. The mother finds she is pregnant again. Given the extreme situation, would you recommend abortion?

-A teenage girl is pregnant. She is not married. Her fiancee is not the father of the baby, and he is very upset. Would you recommend an abortion?

-If you said yes to these examples, you would've killed John Wesley, Beethoven and Jesus Christ

-Choose to see the good in every situation : “I look only to the good qualities of men. Not being faultless myself, I won’t presume to probe into the faults of others.”- Gandhi - We already know that premarital sex (or sex in any relationship depending on the situation) can lead to wanted/unwanted pregnancies.
- You can’t just ‘deal’ with your responsibilities by killing it or ‘killing’ it hypothetically.
- Adoption is always an option.
- 1.5 million Americans ready to adopt. -In the instance of rape and incest, proper medical care can ensure that a woman will not get pregnant

- Abortion punishes the unborn child who committed no crime; instead, it is the perpetrator who should be punished.
-“True courage is not about knowing when to take a life, but when to spare one,” said by Gandalf from the Hobbit adapted from the book The Hobbit written by J.R.R. Tolkien
- Again, adoption is always an option. A medical process of ending a pregnancy so that it does not result in the birth of a baby. miscarriage - ends WITHOUT medical intervention.
abortion - ends WITH medical intervention Religion

The legal period within which an abortion can take place is 120 days. In 2005, 1.21 million abortions were performed, down from 1.31 million in 2000. More than 45 million legal abortions were performed from 1973 through 2005.
Most women receiving abortion (83%) are unmarried. Women who have never married obtain two-thirds of all abortions. 16% are separated, divorced, or widowed. Married women are significantly less likely than unmarried women to resolve unintended pregnancies through abortion. About 60% of abortions are obtained by women who have one or more child.
Fifty percent of U.S. women obtaining abortion are younger than 25: Women aged 20-24 obtain 33% of all abortions, and teenagers obtain 17%.
One woman dies every 7 minutes around the world due to an unsafe illegal abortion.
