The sample argument that I decided to write about is based on emotion. The topic I am about to discuss is a very touchy subject. Different people have different views on the topic. I go a different route than most. I feel very strongly about this subject, but I also understand that people have their own opinion about it. I am not going to judge others if their viewpoint is not the same as mine. Although I will not judge, I will argue my point until my voice is heard. If people do not like my point, feel free to post your reply saying why you are disagreeing with me and why.

If people are old enough to be having sex, then they are old enough to be having a baby.
A major area of debate about abortion is whether or not the fetus is a human. According to Luke 1:44, “For indeed, as soon as the voice of your greeting sounded in my ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy,” a baby can feel joy and leap? Yet, people still say it is not a baby. A human being begins life at conception. A human being is formed from two single cells fusing together in a female. The cells divide and differentiate forming tissue and organs. After only 18 days of growth, a heartbeat can be heard. After 21 days, the eyes, spine, and digestive system are visible. After 40 days, brain waves can be detected. At eight weeks, the toes and fingers are formed. At just 18 weeks, the baby can move on his or her…
