The most common definition of the word abortion states that an abortion occurs when a pregnancy is ended early without the natural birth of a child and before the child is ready to survive outside of the mother’s womb.
The Term Abortion
But there’s another definition for the term abortion calling it an object or undertaking regarded as unpleasant or badly made, or carried out.
Sadly for some parents, even after choosing to give birth to their child, raising that child can too often be regarded as an unpleasant undertaking that’s badly carried out.
Could this application of the term abortion be accurately applied to successful full-term births that result in lives that are forced to endure extreme neglect, abuse, or other misery?
However, one definite abortion, when it involves a human life there is no doubt that a miscarriage of justice has taken place.
