What is abortion?

The deliberate termination of a human pregnancy, most often performed during the first 28 weeks of pregnancy.

Why do people have abortions?

In the United States roughly 50 million abortions have been performed. Studies prove that four out of ten unintended pregnancies result in abortion. If the baby is developed eight weeks or more they feel just as much physical pain as you. 93% of abortions occur for social reasons meaning the mother is to young to cope with a child or more than one child. 6% of abortions occur because of health problems with the child or the mother. The last one percent takes place due to rape or incidents of incest. Financial stability also plays an important role in abortion. Women with family incomes less than $15,000 obtain 29% of all abortions worldwide.Family incomes between $15,000 and $29,999 obtain 20, incomes between $30,000 and $59,999 obtain 38% and incomes over $60,000 obtain 14%.

My Take On Abortion

Abortion is not the route to take. No matter what you are going through abortion shouldn't be a priority. There are many different options than kill an unborn child that is still a human being. Going through with an abortion could lead to many more issues than having a child. Living with the guilt and regret of your choice could lead to depression, suicidal thoughts, emotional stress, etc. Research shows that at least 95% of women don't regret their decision meaning they don't regret killing an innocent human that was given no chance to life. If a pregnancy wasn't planned sit down and think about all the other options you have. Killing an unborn child is as painful as killing innocent person that's living.
