In the society we live in and this day in age this decision has become more of a choice rather then long ago when formula was nonexistent and the main way of nurturing your baby was to breastfeed. Woman in todays age are blind to the health risks and lack of bonding their babies may endure having not been breastfed.

The Pro-abortionist focused only on a women’s right to choose and all the social problems inherent in an unwanted child, forgetting that the unborn child is a precious thing that has the right to life and deserves the full protection under the moral and ethics law.
Here are a few examples of some teratogens: Tobacco: Babies that are exposed to cigarette smoke/tobacco tend to be small and premature, have respitory problems, and sometimes show intellectual difficulties or behavioral problems later in development. Smoking restricts blood flow to the fetus, which in turn reduces the levels of growth factors, oxygen, and nutrients that reach the fetus. The risk of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), in which a sleeping baby suddenly stops breathing and dies, also increases as the amount of smoking increases.
