Dear Future President:
My name is Kyah Chamberlin; I live in Oskaloosa, Iowa. I am twelve years old and I am in seventh grade at Oskaloosa Christian School.
I would like to talk to you about abortion. This is a major problem because innocent babies are being killed. Kids deserve to live and have a chance. Since 1973 when abortion was made legal, nearly 57 million babies have been destroyed by abortion. There is roughly 125,000 abortions per day.
This issue matters to me because I feel that abortion is wrong and is straight murder. Even though they haven’t been born yet they are still alive. Just because you can’t see them yet their there and are growing. It not only hurts the child it also hurts the mother. People think well it’s my body and if I don’t want the child I don’t have to have it. That is wrong because we are temples of God and we belong to Him. We are children of God and so are those little babies.
You should care because this issue is happening every day. With abortion we are losing more than we are gaining and that is so scary to think about. Also babies are dying every day because their parents don't want them. Even though the parents don't want them they still deserve to live. You should care about these babies that are just getting killed because someone doesn't want them or decided they can't take care of them.
Something you could do is make abortion illegal. The parent should have to give birth to the child and then put him or her up for adoption. Instead of getting pregnant for no reason. Some people just need to think about what the outcome is before making a decision. If they aren't able to care for a kid then they should wait until they are. So if it is illegal I think they will think about how precious babies are and that they once were a baby too.
This also really effects my Christian faith because God says he has loved us before we were created in our mother's womb. Even though some humans don’t think that the kid is alive, it is. God has unending love for everyone even those little babies. They mean so much to God and they should to us too. They are the future America and without them we won’t have anymore citizens. In Jeremiah 1:5 it says, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet of the nations.”
I hope you will take this problem into consideration. I just feel that this awful problem can’t be forgotten. They are a person even if you can’t see them, and God loves them as much as us. I hope you will think about this and find a way to help it get better. So many precious children are getting hurt because of the parents not thinking they can do it or they just don’t want the child.
