Why Abortion Isn’t Murder


Jaylene Solis, Staff Writer

Many of the things people say about abortions are “abortion is murder” or “why would you kill an innocent baby?” I know this because I was explaining to a friend that abortion isn’t a bad thing, and these were the things he was saying. Abortions are the woman’s choice and it’s her body, so there’s no need to judge.  I think that some people need to be educated on abortions because there’s a huge stigma when it comes to women getting abortions.

People think that when someone gets an abortion they are killing a baby. Abortions are a medical procedure, not murder. Abortion isn’t murder because the fetus isn’t a child yet, and abortions are made in the first trimester, and people can’t get an abortion after having the fetus for months. 

A lot of times when a woman gets an abortion they are looked at as a “bad person”. Women lose close relationships with family, friends because the women got an abortion. Many people try to talk some women out of getting an abortion because they think abortion isn’t even an option they just think that it’s bad.

Women should be able to get an abortion without people judging because it’s the women’s body and choice. A lot of times women get abortions because they aren’t ready to take care of a kid, or because they are too young. So if they want to get an abortion they should.  It’s the woman’s body, not the man’s choice because the man isn’t the one that’s gonna have to carry the baby for 9 months and then give birth to that child.

In conclusion, women should be able to get abortions without being looked at as a “ bad person”. There’s a huge stigma when it comes to women wanting to get an abortion and it really needs to change. Many people say that women that get an abortion are “ killing an innocent baby” and many other harsh things that aren’t true. People can have their own opinion but a lot of the people that say this just say it because their friend said it or their parents said it. They aren’t educated on the topic. If you are one of the people that have a certain stigma when it comes to abortions and says rude things about this topic, I hope my article gave you a different point of view when it comes to women getting abortions, and why they get one.
