I was reading an article in the Newspaper this morning about a 24-Year-old mother who has been charged with 2 counts of first degree murder for the killing of two of her infant sons. The first son was murdered 1998 when he was 7 months old, and the second murder was in 2002 when he was 9 months old.
For some reason, this got me thinking about my opinion on abortions. Abortion gives a mother the right to kill a child before it is born, but as soon as it’s born, if a mother kills the child, it’s murder and she goes to jail. I understand that the baby hasn’t developed yet, so it’s not really fair to compare these two situations, but I do see a lot of similarities in these two scenarios, with the latter example being a lot more extreme.
With all the birth control methods available out there, I think abortion should be banned. It might make people more conscious about the desicions they make.
