A woman has the right to an abortion up until the point the baby is delivered

A woman should not bear the right to have the baby aborted for many reasons. The first of these reasons is that studies have shown that mothers that abort their babies are more prone to depression (afterabortion.org).
Another reason that it should be made illegal is because the mother is now killing a person. Research has found that the fetus after five weeks of being in the womb, the brain , spinal cord, and heart begins forming (nlm.nih.gov).
Also, the babies that are being killed are could grow up to be many great things- doctors, nurses, astronomers, etc..

Do mothers considering abortion realize that families actually go on waiting lists to adopt newborn babies? Do they realize that some couples wait years to adopt the baby they"ve desperately waited to hold in their arms? Do mothers realize how many experienced parents with wisdom, resources, and plenty of love are reaching out to adopt another child "" no matter his or her race, gender, or disability?

How many deaths are there in the United States alone due to abortion? Well, an estimated 984,000 abortions took place in 2013.

And last, but surely not least, the baby does not have the choice whether to live or not. How would you like to be the baby in the position of abortion? Not having a choice, or a voice? Having no representation or rights? Being treated as a cluster of cells, not a human that is going to one day become a beautiful, smart individual? It is like slavery all over again, except there is more murder due to abortion than to slavery. To end that reoccurring crisis in the country, we need to end the legalization of abortion.
