First, abortion is the interruption of pregnancy by the death of an embryo or fetus which can be spontaneous or provoked. In the second case, this can happen because of problemspresented by the fetus, or even health problems for the mother. There are many women who discover they are carriers of certain diseases in pregnancy only because, at this stage, manydiseases manifest endangering the continuation of pregnancy. We know that today there are many professionals who forget the ethics and illegal abortion is a proof. Many doctors confrontbeyond ethics, the law, in exchange for extra money. In our opinion, the duty of the doctor is to save lives, not destroy them. We believe that no one can take someone's life, even morehelpless a creature. If the woman did not want to have a child, she has to avoid. Nowadays there are many disclosures about contraceptive methods in the media and in schools, and someclinics to distribute for free. In our country, except in cases of rape or when the mother's life is at risk, this act is prohibited by law. About three years ago, a case of abortionoccurred in Alagoinha, Pernambuco. This act was considered lawful to be a case of rape and pregnancy risk. A nine years old child suffered sexual abuse from her stepfather since she wassix, and was taken by her mother to the doctor after feeling dizziness, nausea and headaches. That she had not fully formed organs, pregnancy was considered a risk, and the family optedfor abortion. If abortion can be considered a crime? We do not know the answer very well, but we can ensure that this subject generates great controversy among the whole society. Youneed to know the reasons for this act before judging, as much as we are against, the absurd reasons that lead us to become the favor.
