The issues of abortion always perplexed me in many ways. There were many questions to be answered and to be discovered based on the arguments why people consider it as an option. In issues regarding abortion there are many opinions that I had to observe based on the fact that many individuals had different views and perspectives. Above all the confrontation I encountered regarding abortion, there was only one question that always left me bewildered. I always wondered why women actually go through abortion.

This naturally leads to opposing views on whether a woman should have access to abortion. A lot of people that approve of abortion believe that the fetus becomes a human person only after it has been delivered and is breathing on its own. There is some Biblical justification for this belief. In an article on a website I came across described how Genesis 2:7 states that God made Adam's body from the dust of the ground. But it was only after God breathed into it the breath of life that man became a living person. They
