According to There have been over 90,000 Abortions today across the entire world. The majority of people might choose the pro side to this, abortion should exist. And I have noticed the main argument for this is "The baby is not considered alive and/or human unit birth."
An Abortion typically occurs between the 13th and the 20th weeks of fetal development. By the 13th week of fetal development, the baby has already developed its organs and body parts meaning that the baby is very much alive in every way as a non-living thing cannot be made living by the effects of birth.
According to the Webster"s dictionary the definition of murder is "the unlawful premeditated killing of one human being by another." This is what you commit when you walk into a school and shoot, promptly killing children. This is also the same thing as killing a fetus which by definition is "an unborn offspring of a mammal, in particular an unborn human baby more than eight weeks after conception." The majority of abortions are performed after 8 weeks. which, by definition, would make this murder. Many would like to argue that a Fetus is non-living or human so this law does not apply to such situations. It does in fact. By definition, a living organism is something that "stimulates some kind of response or growth" in which a fetus does and it is, in fact, a human fetus, not a mouse fetus or a horse fetus. And as stated in the paragraph above "a non-living product cannot become a living product by the effects of birth. There are always other options, such as Adoption.

That statistic used here is misleading and unless a judicial record of trial can be provided the action of abortion is based only off of a self-incriminating confession being made publicly without governing. The fact is a Medical Gender Specific Amputation has taken place and at some level the cause was due to a threat to human life.
