The hard part is that we talked about the baby, when it was due, whether she wanted a boy or girl, she seemed excited and happy. It was real.
The baby was 4 months along and I made the mistake of looking up its image and the description of its progress. Even though I have always supported a right to choose, I can't help but thinking she is killing a human.
The fetus is also developing at warp speed; by now, all its major organs are complete. In addition, its bones are growing stronger and its muscles longer. Its reflexes also are sharpening up—it can now swallow, kick and execute an occasional somersault with relative ease.
She is young, only 21 and having relationship problems with the father. The baby was likely to be destined for a hard life. Probably would have abused drugs and alcohol like the mother does. I'm torn on how I view abortion now that it's up close and personal. I feel hypocritical, I have always scoffed at the people fighting against the right to choose, BUT, I understand their point.
I believe that any woman that has an abortion will be affected the rest of her life.
