a way to terminate a human being's life.

The joining of a man's sperm with a woman's egg, a zygote is formed, thus, the very first stage of a human being's life. All information is present at this stage for the human person to grow into an embryo, fetus, infant, toddler, child, teenager, and adult. There are not separate distinctions of the human species during its first stages of growth.
A rose's seed can only be a rose. That seed cannot be a fruit, vegetable, animal, or a human being. The rose's seed is the first stage of its life, although it doesn't look like a rose, all the information is contained within that seed for it to look like a rose. You cannot separate these into different species, because they are the same. From the moment of conception, the human life should be protected. The dead are buried and their wills are respected. Once a human life is created, there is no turning back. There is nothing in our power to make it un-human. Therefore, abortion is one way to terminate a human being's life.

The act of ending an unwanted pregnancy.

Masturbation is different from abortion. It doesn't kill an individual human being, only gametes die, same with when a female has her period.

1) A premature termination of a pregnancy
2) Something Republicans blindly oppose
Jennifer, having considered all her options, decided that getting an abortion was better than forcing her child to live with a degenerative disease.

1) The, usually surgical, removal of an embryo or fetus from the uterus in order to end a pregnancy.

2) A standpoint over which democratic and republican parties argue with no actual consideration for the lives involved. Mysterious figures seem to be popping up everywhere about the numbers and percentages of abortions, such as "Rape victims account for less than 1% of all abortions." This information is surprising, seeing as most rapes aren't even filed (and this informations is absolutely, and completely, necessary to make any claim, such that has been made), and most -- if not all -- parties that perform abortion don't require a "Q&A" session as to why the abortion is being performed.

3) Something that isn't anyone's business outside of the woman getting the abortion.
1) "Alison had an abortion."

2) Republican: "Let's argue about abortion, because there's nothing worthwhile that needs to be addressed -- like the fact that hundreds are being killed overseas in this war that we won't let go. Killing people is okay, so long as they've lived long enough to believe differently than me. Yay God!"

or, if I may be so bold to quote the song of Roland:

"Paiens ont tort et Chretiens ont droit."

(For our non-ancient-French speakers: "Pagans are wrong, and Christians are right".)

3) M: "Sue's says she's going to be gone next Friday, and she's been acting really weird since she broke up with Kyle -- do you think she's getting an abortion?"
T: "It's not your business, and if she wanted us to know, she'd tell us. What was the Latin homework last night?"
M: "Page ninety-five."

1. A girl's way of being a slut without long-term consequences.
2. A way of saving a woman's life if she is medically unable to have the baby.
3. A way to prevent infertile couples from adopting.
1. Damn that girl is a slut, she got pregnant what, 8 times? And she don't have a single one.
2. It's sad, but if my mom didn't have an abortion, she wouldn't be here for my 18th birthday.
3. You can actually put babies up for adoption instead of killing them? Amazing!

(Brit. Slang) Humorous term for use when something – usually a task - goes badly and disastrously wrong. Similar to "Pete Tong" or “tits up”.
"Oops. That was a bit of an abortion."
