Letter: Women have the privilege of bearing children but not terminating a pregnancy

More: Letter: Whether and when to give birth remains a woman's fundamental decision
In the once great state of Illinois, there were 36,000 abortions last year. That's 36,000 stopped beating hearts. Women think they can do whatever they want with their bodies, but wait, God gave women the privilege of having children. Murder is the morally unjustified killing of a human being.
The Bible says, "Thou shalt not kill." This puts a woman in a difficult position. Yes, it is her own body, but in that body is another body, yes, with a beating heart after about six weeks.
