Say No to Abortion Picture a child in your life-anyone, a younger brother or sister, cousin, friends’ siblings - any baby

or toddler. Have you seen them laugh? Cry? Take their first step? Say their first word? Now imagine this special child-gone. Never there. Never experienced life, never learned to walk, laugh, crawl, climb. Sadly, many children never do get a chance to live. Every year, more than one million mothers in the United State and 42 million world-wide new mothers with a beautiful gift inside of them deprive their unborn children of lifetake that gift and throw it away. Not thinking about those women out there who would do anything to be able have children, and how grateful they would be if you just took the time to put the child up for adoption. Imagine-if every woman and man who wanted one had a baby to love, how much happier the world would be. As Mother Teresa said, “The greatest destroyer of peace is abortion because if a mother can kill her own child what is left for me to kill you and you to kill me? There is nothing between.” Although there maybe disagreement about when "life" begins, doctors know much about how the unborn child develops in the womb.First of all, the baby is not a “thing.” It is alive. Six weeks after conception, the brainwaves can be measured, and at nine weeks after the structures necessary for the baby to feel pain are working. ??? Who's definition??? The definition of ‘alive’ is 1-Having life, living, 2-In existence or operation; active. Ronald Reagan said, “Simple morality dictates that unless and until someone can prove the unborn human is not alive, we must give it the benefit of the doubt and assume it is (alive). And, thus, it should be entitled to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” If a baby is alive, he or she has a right to lifehis or her life is a constitutional right. Ensuring that the unborn child has a right to life does not deprive a woman of her right to choose. A woman that chooses to be sexually active does not have the right to choose the consequences of her actions. You might say, well sure, it might be unconstitutional to take away the babies’ right to life, but it is also unconstitutional to take away the mothers freedom of choice. Well, OK, sure, everyone deserves to have the right to choose, but which is really more important: A woman’s right to choose if she wants to destroy something in her body or a baby’s right to live. There may be some acceptable reasons for an abortion such as rape or the health of the mother. However, only What if the mother has a health problem and if she carries or gives birth to a baby both she and the baby will die. In that scenario, the mother should be allowed to abort her child. But look at these numbers: 1% of women have abortions because of rape, and 6% of women have abortions because of health problems. Only six percent. The remaining 93% have abortions for social reasons, likebecause the baby was unwanted or inconvenient. The other 93% have absolutely no excuse. In these cases the women They could give the baby up for adoption. There are many couples who are unable to have children who are waiting for the opportunity to adopt a child. That is the option that helps so many people. They could also take care of the baby themselves, or have their parents take care of it, or someone else in the family. Or how about, if you aren’t ready to have a baby or don’t want one, I have a perfect solution! Use protection! Or even better-try abstinence and don’t have sex until you are ready to bring a child into your family. Unless you have a potential health problem, there really is no excuse for
