Babies are not part of a mother's body.

Dear Mr/Mrs. President,

I am a student at Keller High School in Keller, Texas. There are many problems our nation is facing, but one of the most debated topics is the issue of abortion. I personally believe that this will do more damage than good to this nation and society as a whole. Abortion kills millions of innocent babies, and I think it should be abolished from the U.S. for these reasons.

Fetuses, embryos, and all the other stages of a baby are the first stages of human life. Some common phrases among pro-choice activists vary from,“My body, my choice,” to,“It’s just a bunch of cells clumped together,” however, these are either false or don't give a valid reason to abort the baby. While it is inside the mother, the baby develops its facial features by week 6 of pregnancy and hands and feet by week 7. Unless pregnant woman normally grow another set of limbs and a new face, then an embryo definitely isn't the woman’s body. At the first stages of baby development in the womb, a baby certainly is a group of cells, but it is also a group of cells when it is fully grown, so using that reason to justify abortion is the same thing as justifying murder.

Thomas Jefferson wrote in the Declaration of Independence that all people “are created equal… with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness. Millions of people would have had these rights if they weren't murdered. Millions of of other people who weren't aborted were directly affected by abortion, for their best friend, mentor, sibling, hero, or even their savior was treated like trash and ripped to shreds while forcefully being removed from the mother.

So much potential has been wasted, and so many lives were lost at the claws of abortion. I ask that this cannot continue. Before you make any decision about abortion, please remember the millions of lives that were lost just from abortion and how fortunate you were to be born.

Thank you for listening,

Colby M.
