Abortion - Right or Wrong?

What is abortion?

"An abortion is the termination of a pregnancy by the removal or expulsion of an embryo or fetus from the uterus, resulting in or caused by its death. An abortion can occur spontaneously due to complications during pregnancy or can be induced. Within animal husbandry abortions can be used on mammalian livestock for the health of pregnant animals or for breeding purposes. In the context of human pregnancies, an abortion induced to preserve the health of the gravida (pregnant female) is termed a therapeutic abortion, while an abortion induced for any other reason is termed an elective abortion. Abortion as a term most commonly refers to the deliberate induced abortion of a human pregnancy, while spontaneous abortions are usually termed miscarriages."Wikipedia

Abortion raises ethical, legal and religious issues. It's considered, in the West, a free choice if the fetus is less than 8 weeks old. In the Middle East, it's forbidden and banned in all cases because of religious beliefs. I am completely against abortion of all kinds and types.

Abortion is very dangerous to the pregnant female. It can be fatal or destructive to the uterus and it can have extreme psychological effects. Most people who have premarital sex seem relieved for the fact that nowadays we have the latest technologies to perform a safe abortion. I think if you're not ready to get pregnant, don't have sex in the first place, or at least try to have safe sex with the many contraceptive ways available.

I am glad that the worldwide abortion rate went down since 1993 from 46 millions a year to 40 millions a year in 2008. It's a big accomplishments to all the people who are against abortion and who made amazing campaigns to raise more awareness to the subject. This is mostly in the West because in the Middle East abortion is out of the question, but this is only in shallow water. If you go deeper in the Middle East, you will find that there are illegal abortion clinics run by normal people or "retired" doctors.

I think religion and the law in the Middle East are enough reason for people to think twice about abortion. If two people fell in love and the girl got pregnant before marriage, they both should get married and in extreme cases, the girl should undergo abortion because the child will be a bastard child. Yet again I don't think that's enough reason for any one to perform or have abortion.

I believe that no one has the right to take the life off of anyone even if they think they're the "creators". A mother doesn't have the right to deprive the unborn from it's life just because it's her choice. What about the choice of the unborn? I believe that religion is right after all regarding this specific matter because abortion is exactly the same as killing a person, but the person at least had a life, so what about an unborn.

Well, I posted some photos that are of extreme graphic nature for everyone to see. These are the results of abortion to the unborn. Do you think it's fair? Imagine yourself not existent just because your mother decided to have an abortion. How would it feel?
