To The Daily Sun,
When does life begin? Does it begin when a baby is born? Does life begin earlier, say for instance when a pregnant woman feels the baby move? Or does life begin when a woman becomes pregnant? These questions have differing answers based on belief, opinion, and personal feelings about pregnancy and abortion. Within a few days after conception a child begins to grow within a woman's womb. This is life, growing and developing, a body, then arms and legs, a heart beating, a brain. How can anyone think this is simply a mass of unfeeling tissue.
Controlling ones own body does not include killing another. When someone willingly kills a person already born, the law looks upon the killer as a murderer, but a woman's decision to kill her own baby developing in her womb is seen as OK by some. Here is where the problem lies. An unborn baby has life, is alive, feels pain and is a person no matter what some may believe. Life does begin at conception.
Killing an infant in the womb is just as much murder as killing the child after his birth, or when he is a year old, or shooting her with a gun when she is 10. Murder is murder.
Life is precious.
