Yes, it is murderIn my view direct abortion, termed termination by its advocates is in fact murder.
It is the deliberate taking of human life.
Those advocating pro choice are actually advocating that a woman should be allowed to murder her unborn infant.
Many pose this issue as somehow connected to a womans freedom to do what she likes with her body.
She indeed has that freedom but only in relation to her body and not in relation to the body of the unborn child which is distinct and separate from although within her.
Others say this is a womans only issue as though it only affects women.
This is not true as aborted babies are both genders.
Others say it is a human rights matter.
Of course it is and the primary issue is the right to life of both mother and child.
It really confounds me that rational people can not see what is at stake in this debate other than a right to life.
Life begins at conception .
This is scientifically proven.
Therefore to end that life deliberately and directly can only be a crime.
What do other posters think?
