Is abortion murder or not?Would aborting a fetus be considered the same as murdering a baby thats already born?Should abortion be made legal? The Pro-abortion people seem to be advocating the position that the fetus is not human being and the mother should have the right to abort the fetus , just as she has the right to decide what to do with tissues inside her own body. I don't agree that the fetus is not human being , yes a woman should have the right to do what she wants with her tissues,but a fetus can feel pain,its brain functions normally...so to me it feels like murder.Although I would like to know what others think and also if I have got my facts right.

yes its ofcourse a murder! though govt had allowed it for some good reasons like in case when the child is suffering from a dreadful disease and giving birth to such a child who can't lead a normal life isn't feasible enough.raising such a child is also quite painful for parents! but it is exploited ,,emotionless women abort their child for their own selfish motives....like when they want a boy(in remote areas)or incase they aren't married and yet are conceivng a baby or incase they aren't ready for such a responsibilty even though they are married! it's a sin actually ...you can't decide whether a child should live or die. one should take precautions if they dont want a baby and yes there is an other way out ...you can leave your baby to somebody else who hasn't...but even thats not good!but atleast you are not killing him.

Murder is something "illegal killing with malice aforethought." Abortion fails this definition for two reasons. First, abortion is not illegal, and second, there is no evidence to suggest that expecting mothers feel malice towards their own flesh and blood.

To me abortion is murder. It is a real live human being the minute it is made. If don't want any babies then take care of not having any. I can't believe how many woman to have them. I have two kids and don't know how they do it. If don't want it give to someone that does. There are plenty that don't have any or can't. There is no way they should allow this to happen.
