Are Abortions More Acceptable If They Are Done Early On In The Pregnancy?

Pro-Choice, Illogical, No Sense, Abortion, Morally, Protection

While a clear majority of Americans believe abortion is morally wrong and should not be allowed in all or most circumstances [1], 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 [2].

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 [3].

It is for these reasons that abortion is always the wrong answer, and there are always better options.

  1. Thank you for fighting for life. Years ago I was pro-choice. It is through our Lord Jesus Christ, that I now understand the truth that God knows us even before we are ever conceived. Now I see.

    Humble before Him,

    Daniel Smith
