I agree that your essay will need to include some references to your art project. With such a sensitive topic, you will want to make sure you select your words with care. Try to stick to evidence and fact rather than derogatory language. Be sure you recognize there is another point of view and try not to put down those who feel differently than you do. It is important to try to stay calm and assertive in your language rather than derogatory or offensive. You will get your point across much clearer by simply explaining your point of view instead of dogmatically insisting it is the right view.

The first thing you need to do is figure out what your main three points are going to be.  Are you going to argue that "it is wrong" and "it is a sin" are two different things?  If so, you still need one more argument to use for your third body paragraph.  Perhaps you might want to talk about its impact on people who get an abortion.

I am a little confused about how this is for an art project. Did you make a piece of art, and the essay is a persuasive essay supporting it? In that case, I think the essay should relate to and describe the art project, explaining what it means, as well as how it is persuasive.
