  1. 1. Abortion is Murder Jennifer Echstenkamper
  2. 2. What is abortion? Abortion is defined as the deliberate termination of a human pregnancy, most often performed during or up to the first 28 weeks of pregnancy.
  3. 3. When is a baby viable? Most people think a baby is not a baby until it is born. As early as 8 weeks old in the womb, a baby has all of its limbs and is able to suck its thumb- exactly how a baby does once it is born. A baby can be born as early as 23 weeks and survive out of the womb. If you remember in the definition of abortion, a mother can terminate the child as late as 28 weeks. Five full weeks after a baby can be born and survive.
  4. 4. How is an abortion performed at different stages?People support abortion and don’t classify it as murder, but do you really know how an abortion is performed? And worse yet- a late term abortion? At 8-12 weeks, the baby is sucked out of the uterus with a vacuum with suction power 29x more powerful than a household vacuum- tearing the baby into pieces as it suctions it out. At 13-20 weeks, the baby has to be dismembered inside the uterus with forceps, the skull is then crushed and the spine snapped to take out the unborn child.
  5. 5. Cont. At 6 months, the doctor goes in through C- section; cuts the umbilical cord in the womb, let the baby suffocate and then take it out. At 28-30 weeks the baby is pulled out of the vaginal canal by its legs. The head remains inside the mother, the doctor cracks open the baby’s skull with scissors and the brain is then suctioned out and the dead child is then removed completely.
  6. 6. Murder Murder is defined as the unlawful premeditated killing of one human being by another. If this is murder, then how is planning an carrying through with an abortion not murder? A baby can survive outside the womb by 23 weeks; abortions are still performed at 30 weeks. The child is able to cry, breathe, eat, move and survive, but the mother can still choose to have her baby murdered.
  7. 7. Conclusion Murder is the killing of a human being by another human being Abortion is the act of killing a child and terminating a life inside or outside the womb. The way abortions are performed are gruesome and cruel to a defenseless baby. How is abortion not murder?
