Now, I don't believe that government should dictate to us what we can and cannot do with our lives, bodies, etc., but I am, personally, very much against abortion.
I know people who have had abortions, and it isn't my place to judge another person's decision. But, as for myself, abortion is not an option.

There are alternatives to abortion! Just because the birth mother, or father, doesn't want the child, doesn't mean it isn't wanted!
So many women in our country want children so desperately. Adoption, to me, seems to be one of the greatest gifts a mother who is contemplating abortion could give to her child.

Did you know that the heart begins to beat at 6 weeks?
At 11 weeks, the eyes begin to form.
They can also begin to feel at 11 weeks. That means that surgical abortions at 15 weeks can be felt by the baby!
At 26 weeks, the baby can hear.
But what about in cases of rape, or incest? Well, only about 1% of abortions are performed for that reason. 25.5% are performed simply because the mother just doesn't want to have a baby yet.

Allan F. Guttmacher, known as the Father of Planned Parenthood, said himself that "Today, it is possible for almost any patient to be brought through pregnancy alive; unless she suffers from a fatal illness such as cancer or Leukemia, and, if so, abortion would be unlikely to prolong, much less save life."
