While a clear majority of Americans believe abortion is morally wrong and should not be allowed in all or most circumstances , some have argued that abortion is less wrong if it is done earlier in the pregnancy.
By this same logic, taking the life of a 4 year old is less wrong than taking the life of a 35 year old.
Unfortunately for those who are pro-choice, the logic is absurd and does not work in either case.
Those who are pro-choice can point out the fact that only 1.5% of all abortions occur in the 21st week or later .
However, abortions that are committed early and those that are committed late both result in death of a living human.
In both cases, the woman is put at greater risk of being physically or psychologically harmed by the abortion procedure .
It is for these reasons that abortion is always the wrong answer, and there are always better options.
