That’s what’s really at the core of abortion – are fetuses living human beings? Pro-choice advocates don’t think so, pro-life advocates believe so. How can we answer this question?
First of all, let me tell you something very important. Much like in a court of law, the BURDEN OF PROOF is on the accusing side. The prosecutor must prove that the defendant did what he’s accused of.
In our case, the prosecutor is the PRO-CHOICE side.
You see, even pro-choice supporters know we’ve all been fetuses at some point. So we know that ultimately we develop as living human beings inside our mothers’ womb. There is no question about that.
In order for pro-choice advocates to defend their position, first they must PROVE that fetuses are NOT LIVING HUMAN PERSONS. If there’s a shadow of a doubt about this, the RIGHT thing to do is to PROTECT that life that’s growing inside his mother’s womb.
The three characteristics need to be present: LIVING + HUMAN + PERSON. We know that cancer, for example, is a living mass of cells. We know it’s human. But we also know it’s not a person.
How about fetuses?
The key is to identify when life begins. Civilized countries in the world have laws protecting human life after we’re born – with the exception of ISIS and some barbaric nations, the civil world penalizes murder. So we can say there’s an overwhelming understanding that once we’re born, our lives are protected by law.
How about when we’re in our mother’s womb?
That’s precisely what Roe v Wade didn’t define clearly – ‘viability’ is the term the ruling used. But viability changes as technology progresses and we’re able to see and know more about the fetus growing in his mother’s womb. For example, we now know that a fetus can survive at 23 weeks. That wasn’t the case in 1973 when Roe v Wade was issued.
One important point that scientific progress has clarified is:
OUR ENTIRE GENETIC CODE IS ESTABLISHED AT CONCEPTION
Science tells us that – and we cannot ignore this very important fact.
If our entire genetic code is established at conception, it means that at conception our gender, height, eye color, hair color, intelligence, emotions, personality, passions, talents, weight, illnesses, etc. were determined.
At conception we know we’re not a cancerous cell, or any other code-name pro-choice advocates want to give us.
In other words, at conception it’s defined that we are LIVING HUMAN PERSONS.
We’re living, because we have life – we’re growing, like a child who’s still growing. But we’re LIFE.
We’re human, because our parents are human and therefore we cannot be anything other than HUMAN.
We’re different persons from our mother, because our genetic code has already established what kind of PERSON we are.
And it all happens AT CONCEPTION.
Now, pro-choice advocates have the BURDEN OF PROOF to demonstrate that we’re NOT living human beings. They need to prove SCIENCE wrong. How they 'feel' about pregnancies isn't the issue. And quite frankly, nobody should care. They must PROVE science wrong...
The passion that pro-life supporters feel is consistent with anybody wanting to save LIFE. It’s like when a child falls into a well, where nobody can reach him. You call firefighters, neighbors and virtually when it makes the news, all of us (pro-choice advocates included!) follow the story and hope and scream to the screen: PLEASE SAVE THAT LIFE!
With abortion it’s the same – we’re PRAYING and SCREAMING to PLEASE SAVE THAT LIFE!
I don’t need to tell Christians where in the Bible they can find that abortion is murder.
But if you’re a pro-choice advocate and don’t care about the Bible, prove us wrong. Prove us that life DOES NOT begin at conception. Prove us that you weren’t a distinctive and different living human being when you were in your mother’s womb. It’s on YOU to prove us wrong. It’s on YOU to prove that the defendant is guilty. It's on YOU to prove science wrong.
As you continue promoting abortion, since it’s LIFE you’re ending, you’re now promoting MURDER. Civilized countries have laws that protect HUMAN LIFE and punish MURDERERS.
If we want to become a civilized country again we must OVERTURN Roe v Wade.
If men fight, and hurt a woman with child, so that she gives birth prematurely, yet no harm follows, he shall surely be punished accordingly as the woman’s husband imposes on him; and he shall pay as the judges determine. But if any harm follows, then you shall give life for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot, burn for burn, wound for wound, stripe for stripe.
We bring you the TRUTH that the Left denies you. You'll live a more joyful and victorious life, because the Truth will set you free...
