101-36 Persuasive Essay 9/22/96

Abortion, the easiest way to fix one\'s mistakes. I mean, if one is
going to screw around and accidentally get knocked up, why should they have to
be responsible for the outcome of messing around. Why not just murder the
unborn child. That is what goes on daily, slaughtering of young, innocent
children, that if born, would easily find a home. What did they [the unborn
child] do wrong? Oh nothing, it\'s just that the mother and/or father are just
so lazy and irresponsible that they would rather see their child be butchered
than have to change it\'s diaper or feed it. Society today does not respect
life and therefore accepts the murdering of unborn children.

A major factor that is missing is society in today\'s world are moral
values. If people actually had morals, then abortion might not occur. No
matter what anyone argues, abortion is murder, plain and simple. How could one
deny that when a doctor grabs his forceps and crushes a child\'s skull and sucks
out what was once a brain, how could they say that is not murder, how could
someone get away with doing this. Then again people ask that same question
about OJ.

There are many abortion-slaughter techniques that are used today.
Examples are the Dilatation and Curettage (D&C) where a loop shaped steel knife
is inserted and the child is cut into pieces, also there is the Dilatation and
Evacuation (D&E) where the doctor uses forceps with sharp metal jaws and tears
the child apart, piece by piece. Usually the head is hardened to bone and must
be compressed or crushed in order to get it out. Another highly controversial
technique that is getting a lot of publicity nowadays is the partial birth
method. This procedure in performed in the second and third trimesters of
pregnancy or between 20 to 32 weeks, sometimes later. Now according to
Abortion: Some medical facts, a book printed by the National Right to Life,
the partial birth technique is performed like this: "Guided by ultrasound, the
abortionist reaches into the uterus, grabs the unborn baby\'s leg with forceps,
and pulls the baby into the birth canal, except for the head, which is
deliberately kept just inside the womb. ( At this point in a partial -birth
abortion, the baby is alive.) Then the abortionist jams scissors into the back
of the baby\'s skull and spreads the tips of the scissors apart to enlarge the
wound. After removing the scissors, a suction catheter is inserted into the
skull and the baby\'s brains are sucked out. The collapsed head is then removed
from the uterus." Now I don\'t see a difference between the partial-birth
method and say me going up to someone and stabbing them over and over again.
The only difference is the outcome, were I would be charged with murder for
committing such a crime , but the "doctors" that perform the 1.5 million
murders a year get paid and some even praised.

Hopefully people will wake up and see that abortion truly is murder.
The opposition usually contests that women have the right to terminate their
pregnancy whenever they want. Now I was taught that one could not have a right
that conflicts with the rights of others, therefore the claim that women have
such a right is irrelevant. Most uninformed people think that the majority of
abortions are performed because the woman\'s life is in danger, well that is not
fact. Fact is that 93% of all induced abortions are done for elective,
nonmedical reasons. To make it simple, they are just irresponsible, they are
murders and will have to live with that for the rest of their lives.
