Anything that takes in oxygen, which feeds off something, is alive. No one in this world has the right to take a life. The world destroys something precious without a care in the world. The precious life of a child is something everyone should respect, not disregard. Abortion destroys life, is the easy way out of pregnancy and pain. According to Sallie Tisdale’s short story “We Do Abortion Here: A Nurse’s Story,” the author “cannot bear another basin of bloody remains” (1). Tisdale could no longer bear the continuous in and out patients and the endless death surrounding the ghastly procedure.
The moment the egg is fertilized there is a life born. There are laws that protect the life of animals, but why is it that people are able to kill the life of a human? A person should not be able to terminate a life just because it is small. Another word for abortion is murder. Having an abortion is the same as killing a person. There is no way around that fact. “[Abortion] exists because we are able to ask such questions, able to assign a value to the fetus which can shift with changing circumstances” (30). A fetus may not look like a person, but it is a life that is developing to become a part of our society.
So many young teenage women have sex without a second thought. These young ladies might not even use protection. The problem is these girls will not use the protection correctly. Many young women do not think about the consequences that go along with having sex. Once a teenager learns that she is pregnant, the first thing they wish to do is get an abortion. “Every day I take calls from women who are annoyed that we cannot see them, cannot do their abortion today, this morning, now,” they only think about themselves and how the pregnancy will affect their lives (22). They do not think about the life that is growing inside them. In the U.S, there are about 1.3 million abortions per year. Most of the abortions happen in the first trimester, which is about 88 percent. The other 12 percent of the abortions happen in the second trimester of pregnancy.
Once a woman has an abortion, there is no turning back. Many women regret their hastily made decision. They do not realize how much they will miss the life that was growing inside of them. After they realize their mistake, they will fall into depression because they know that they will not be able to change what they did. ‘’The distance between the two, the length I pace and try to measure, is the size of an abortion’’ (5) They should not be able to make the decision to have an abortion while they are riding an emotional rollercoaster.
Murder equals abortion. Abortion equals destruction of life; an easy way out of a consequence, and the regret that follows. This is why abortion should be illegal. No one should be allowed to take away the life of a child no matter what the circumstances. Life is to be treasured and not discarded like trash, “imagine a world where this won’t be necessary, and then return to the world where it is” (39). How would you feel if your own mother had made the wrong choice?
A beautiful flower, in a field of liles.
Share an endless love.
The creeping darkness answered, “No one has seen the future.”
I raise my hand to the sky and grab the frigid wind.
All the dreams and agony remain in the past.
The world is in a slumbering twilight.
I go on, to an unknown tomorrow!
The world is a cruel and unfair place for many people. This world is complex to acknowledge and realize why the world has come to be. All we can do is stand by, watch or stand up, battle until the end. Which will you do? Just stand by, watch the world go by or stand up and revolutionize the world. The question is within people hearts. In the end, I know what I have deiced since I was an infant…. Have you?
A wise man told me life is how you make of it. You can’t changes your mistakes in life only look at what you have done wrong and changes it for the better in life. I always have that in mind no matter where I’m at. I use to think that I could changes the past for the better and try so hard to fix things and always fail. Until I realized that you can’t changes the past only learn from your mistakes to make it better. No one is perfect in life; everyone makes their mistakes sooner or later. Life is full of choice no matter where you are. There will come a time that you will have to make a choice and it may hurt another person or it may not be the right choice but in the end it will be your choice you made from the heart.
Life has taken me everywhere and I have learned and experience a lot through my life. I have seen so many things good and bad but those experiences I went through in life I adopted and made me who I am now. I know I have many things to learn still but I Know one thing I learn the most was to never give up in life. Just keep moving forward. I have learned to live and with my trust, my drive, my dream, and my promise I made since I was an infant. I will achieve my goal no matter what it takes. No matter if I DIE trying. I will achieve my goal.
It’s funny how when you make mistakes and you try to fix them by making things right again. They will just not care, listen, or even bother with you anymore. No giving you a chance to speak or make thing right again. I knew a lot of people once and I try to treat them right and be there as a true friends but I always mess up somehow. The things I do were never meant to hurt anyone. I just made silly mistakes and hurt people. With every moment and every second past. I see that some people will forgive you and others will not. In that moment you will find which are your true friends and which are not. No matter if you hurt them or even made many silly mistakes or even horrible once. Your true friends will forgive you if you really did recognize your mistakes and say (I AM SORRY FOR HURTING YOU). In the moment you will know something that no matter how hard you try to fix thing or even try to be perfect one day you will make a mistakes and some people will not forgive you and they will call you names, talk bad about you, or even won’t like you anymore but if you keep moving forward and never look back and keep looking for hope and faith you will be just fine. Through my life I have made many mistakes and I have learned from them. But sometimes I get down or get so (EMO) that I hate my life for it. I still hate myself for what I have done to people but what keeps me going is my FAITH, BELIEVE, AND THE WILL OF HOPE FOR THING TO GET BETTER IN THE FUTURE. So to anyone that is struggling or made bad mistakes just remember to never look back and keep moving forward with your back straight and you head up high. And you will see that with FAITH AND THE WILL TO BELIEVE EVERYTHING WILL BE FINE IN YOUR LIFE. Even if your down and (emo) just keep moving forward.
