Abortion: Protecting the Womans Rights???

The main argument of abortion is that we are protecting the woman's rights. Her right to decide what is done to her body. We are giving her a chance to speak up for what she believes, and then act on that.
But who decides for the child? The mother? Do you honestly think that if you have that child a choice it would choose death? No, of course not!
Where do the people of our world get off deciding that child's fate? No one ever gave him or her a chance. We are humans, are taking on the role of God.
The parents of a child only give the body. God is the one who gives the soul! If we kill the body, we are murders. If we kill the soul, we are putting our selves about God.
People of this world: stop acting like you know more than God!
Every person is special. God has a plan for every single one of those children. Let them fulfill that plan.

Here are 10 Arguments Against Abortion:
1. Cost of Abortions: The Ministry of Health claimed that the 45 000 women treated in public hospitals for incomplete abortions each year is costing the state R19 million.
2. Backstreet Abortions Increase: Dr Christopher Tietze, an abortion advocate, concedes: "Although one of the major goals of the liberalisation of abortion laws in Scandinavia was to reduce the incidence of illegal abortion, this was not accomplished. Rather as we know from a variety of sources, both criminal and total abortions increased."
3. Parallels between Abortion & Slavery: Slavery in centuries past and abortions in this century were defended and promoted by the same arguments.
4. Indisputable Medical Evidence: The Unborn baby is a Human Being
5. Abortion Aggravates Child Abuse: If children are viewed as expendable before birth, they will be viewed as expendable after birth.
6. Even Legal Abortions are Unsafe: There are many complications that may arise from an abortion. It is not a 'quick fix' at all. The complications include: Ectopic pregnancies, Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (reported in up to 30% of all cases), subsequent infertility and miscarriages, future premature births (often because of a cervix that was damaged during the previous abortion), small-for-dates babies and placenta previa, which is 7-15 times more common among women who have had abortions than among those who have not.
7. Increase in Breast Cancer: "Every study of induced abortions performed before the first live birth is consistent with an initial increase in risk of at least 50 percent," reports Dr Joel Brind.
8. Most South Africans Oppose Abortion: A professional survey done by the MarkData arm of Human Sciences Research Council in September and October 1995 shows that the public were strongly opposed to abortion.
9. The Overpopulation Argument: However, is the world really overpopulated? Can we not feed ourselves? In his book "Exploding Population Myths" Jim Peron conclusively proves that the population is not the problem:"In most of the world, food production is easily outstripping population growth, and on a world-wide basis the problem of overpopulation no longer exists."
10. The Bible Declares the Sanctity of Human Life:
"Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves...defend the rights of the poor and needy." Proverbs 31:8-9
"For you created my inmost being. You knit me together in my mother's womb....Your eyes say my unformed body." Psalm 139:13-16
