Abortion not right

I believe that no human being should deserve to die before seeing the world. Well some babies die with diseases but some babies are killed purposely by there own mothers because there not wanted. I believe that if someone doesn’t want a baby they shouldn’t kill it because of there own mistake its not the babies fault it was brought into the world it’s the person that had it. Some people want kids but they can’t have any and women that can have then throw them in the trash or have them destroyed by there mothers having and abortion. Like on this website there was an article about a babies point of view and how he/she feels like when they didn’t have the chance to be brought into the world and it shows pictures of what a baby looks like after it has had an abortion.

The mother doesn’t gain anything by knowing that an innocent child has been destroyed because of their mistake. The thing that made me think strongly about this was when I was online and then there was this bulletin about an abortion and then it showed pictures of how the baby looks like when it is destroyed. The baby is so small and all the body parts were broken and it was really sad and that makes you think about how it would be like if that were you. That’s why abortion is so sad and terrible and that’s why people shouldn’t do that because its not your problem only it’s the baby that never got to see the world and never will.
