Abortion is the pregnancy termination by expulsion or removal a fetus from the uterus of the mother before its delivery. Abortion can happen spontaneously, in this case it is termed as miscarriage; or it can be done on purpose. Abortion debate on whether it is ethically correct or wrong is the point of contention in the world today, but several concepts were developed trying to explain this phenomenon. An issue to discuss about is induced abortion – one that is done medically.
Basing on the biblical concept of abortion, induced abortion is said to be a sin. God’s words must resolve the issue. Fortunately, the Bible gives much guidelines and perceptions regarding the value of human life and the humanity of abortion. The word of God clearly teaches that abortion is a murder, and that the termination of human life incenses the Lord (Anand, (2007).
Induction of the fetus from the mother’s womb is a painful experience in life. From the social perspective, pain is a course of human problem and discomfort, and this may lead to several impacts such as stress and even death that is the worst concequence. A socially disturbed person cannot function well in the social environment.
Under the medical perception of abortion, this process has a lot of side effects to the person subjected to the practice. The destruction of the mother’s womb and other parts of her body is a possible phenomenon during abortion. From my experience with women, abortion can make a woman barren; this is due to the destruction of important elements that permit the process of conception.
The spontaneous abortion always happens not to the wish of the mothe,r and it is argued that, if the mother is at risk with the baby, then it has to be induced. This is only if the mother’s health condition is not okay. This is accepted by law in all countries.
Basing my ideas on the above demerits of abortion, I conclude that abortion is an unethical process and should not be allowed to take place in the world.
