JUNIOR HIGH HONORABLE MENTION
The Truth About Abortion
Andrea Leach, Upland, Pennsylvania
Almost everyone knows what abortion is. If you don't, you are
not going to find a good answer in The Pocket Dictionary, whose definition is
"induced premature termination of pregnancy or development." Obviously, this
person doesn't know the truth about abortion.
It is just like a child's grand pop just died and his mom is
trying to placate him by using words like, "Grand pop is up in heaven and
looking down at you," instead of, "Grand pop's dead and gone and six feet
under." People who are pro-choice, abortionists, and people who have had
abortions try to hide the truth about abortion from others or themselves. They
use words like "aborting a fetus," or "interrupting a pregnancy".
It is simple: abortion is murdering a living child that has
been living inside a mother's womb since fertilization. People need to know
abortion is evil and shouldn't have one. They are taking away a life that was
just beginning to form. The estimated 4,000 pre-born babies that are aborted
every day will not have a chance to be a kid, go to school, get a job, marry,
raise a family, grow old gracefully, and then die. No, because their mothers
killed them before they were able to breathe.
I know this essay seems short, but I hope it says a lot about
the evils of abortion.
