Abortion is murder.

Abortion is basically killing a innocent babe that is alive in it's mothers womb. People try to say that the baby isn't alive and it's totally unaware. But in reality its heart and brain are the first things to develop. Not only does the baby die but the mother feels the loss. This should automatically tell you there is something wrong with abortion. What if God decided that he didn't want you to be born and killed you? Would that be right? No of course not! So why would it make sense to justify a mother killing her baby? What if a mother had a baby prematurely and decided she didn't want it? Would that be right? I mean, some people get their babies killed at that time. For these reasons I consider abortion wrong and it is murder.

Abortion is not murder. People have abortions when times are bad. The baby will come into a world where they will be exposed to evils and the mother does not want their baby to come into the world that she lives in.

Steven Levitt made this argument in Freakonomics. He argues that abortion is the cause of the sudden crime drop in America in the 1990's. Crime rates dropped when abortion was legal as babies who would be coming into a world of evils and therefore committing crime themselves.

People murder animals every day when they eat meat are you against that as well?

Really it is a choice for the mother to take. It is not a choice mothers want to take but sometimes have to.

Explain how abortion is not murder??

Con

Abortion is not murder because the baby does not have any memories or a personality so really you are just killing a potential life not a life.

Have you ever been in a situation where you must consider abortion? Have you ever had to go through a time where your baby would come into the world with little job prospects and a high chance of doing crime?

Murder is the killing of an innocent human life. Abortion is the killing of an innocent human life. Therefore, abortion is murder.
Many reject the idea that abortion (killing the fetus in the womb) is the murder of an innocent human life. However, the answer to a few simple questions prove that the unborn child is an innocent human life. (1) Is "that" which is growing within the mother's womb alive or dead? Of course it is alive. (2) Is "that" which is growing within the mother's womb animal or human? Of course it is human. (3) Is "that" which is growing within the mother's womb guilty or innocent? Of course it is innocent. The conclusion then is logically drawn by every rational person that the unborn in the mother's womb is ALIVE, HUMAN and INNOCENT. Therefore, the unborn child is an innocent human life! Abortion is the killing of the "fetus" in the mother's womb. Therefore, abortion is the killing/murder of innocent human life.
A "fetus," as it is called by the medical world, is a baby (I prefer to call the unborn child what God calls it, a baby, Luke 1:41,44.) It is a human being. It is yet unborn, but is every bit as much alive, has all bodily organs, feels pain and functions just as you and I.
The Bible speaks of the unborn child in the womb in the same words as it does the child after birth. Luke 1:41,44 uses the word "babe" to describe the unborn child in Elizabeth's womb. The verse reads, "For as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in mine ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy." The word "babe" is also used to describe Jesus immediately after he was born (Luke 2:12,16). "And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger." The Bible makes no distinction between the unborn (Luke 1:41,44), infants (Luke 18:15) and toddlers or young children (Acts 7:19; II Timothy 3:15)!
There is no more moral wrong in killing a child AFTER it is born than there is in killing a child BEFORE it is born. By what sordid thinking do doctors, nurses, medical professionals and willing mothers put to death multiplied millions of little babies/children every year? These unborn children are sacrificed on the altars of greed and selfishness. The deliberate taking of human life is sinful whether the person be two months old inside the womb or outside the womb, two years old or 92 years old! God hates it (Prov. 6:16-19)!

You use the word unborn so if it is unborn how is it alive. Do you have any memories of the womb. I believe as do many a human is born when it leaves the womb.

Abortion is not murder it is a choice some mothers have to take if times are bad or if they do not want a baby. The baby may be unloved and not live a happy life and just so you think it is murder the mum has to be approximatly 200,000 pounds for it to live

So, if someone has amnesia, or just can't remember things, they aren't alive?
