Induced Abortion must be Banned

Induced abortion had been one of the most controversial issues since 1973. I believe that it is time to end the dispute and prohibit this immoral but legal murder. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) states that a total of 854,122 legal induced abortions were reported to CDC for 2002.

In July 4, 1776, our founding fathers stated, "We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal and that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights -- of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness (Declaration of Independence)." According to this statement, abortion is against our human rights. Those unborn human beings must be protected and respected. It is their rights and no one can infringe their rights.

Therefore, they are corrupting their morals and the society by having abortions. However, by banning abortion, we could reduce and prevent from their unjust actions and teach them the importance of life.
