Abortion Should Be Illegal
Abortion should be made illegal for the following reasons. At the very first minute of conception the baby is alive. Although it might not have a pulse or heartbeat is a living thing. Another reason is that no human being has the right to take another human being’s life. Murder is murder.

The final reason why abortion should be made illegal is that the child has no choice or voice in the matter at all. The child who is in the womb of the mother has not done anything wrong or...
