Is abortion really the right thing to do? Is murdering a baby really worth living your life healthy? I say no, its not the right thing to do. Abortion should be illegal in the U.S because abortion is murder. Abortion has been around for many years and has been and still is a controversial issue. During abortion babies die, even if they are still embryos and/or fetuses. The procedure is stressful and dangerous, during the procedure; the mother may die or get severely scarred. To get an abortion, it costs a lot of money to have just ONE for one single baby or fetus.
