Much of the debate about abortion questions whether deliberate infanticide should be banned.
Here is why abortion is wrong. First let's start with a syllogism. It is wrong to take the life of an innocent human being. Abortion takes the life of an innocent human being. Therefore abortion is wrong. Any object that 1) can properly be called a living organism 2) is comprised of cells that contain human DNA, is by simple definition a human being. The zygote is composed of human DNA and other human molecules. So the zygote is not some other species. "Zygote" is the name of the first cell formed, the earliest development stage of an embryo. The human embryo fulfills the 4 criteria to establish biological life. 1) metabolism 2) growth 3) reaction to stimuli 4) reproduction.
