“We hold these truths to be self-evident…that all are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness.”
These immortal words are falling upon the ears of an increasing number of people who turn a deaf ear and blind eye to such words because of their amoral quest to elevate themselves to masters of life and death. How have we sunk to this point in the life of our once great nation?
It is simply because too many people have been brainwashed into thinking that while we share our mother’s womb, we are not human, or that because we are inside her womb the mother somehow has the right to elevate herself to godhood and decide whether the baby lives or dies.
We know a maggot to be a fly in an early stage of development. We know a pregnant female tiger to be carrying a baby tiger within her, a tiger in an early stage of development. So how is it that we can justify saying that a pregnant woman is carrying something less than human when it is plainly obvious that what the woman is carrying is a human child in an early stage of development?
The simple fact of the matter is that we ARE human beings from the first moment of our conception, human beings in an early stage of development that continue to grow and develop. Therefore an otherwise viable unborn child is entitled to the same right to live as the rest of us. People attempt to justify otherwise by saying: “This child cannot reason, is not aware of his existence, therefore he cannot be human.” Just because a child cannot reason does not mean that he does not have the capacity to. All humans have the capacity, we just have to be taught how to use this capacity to its fullest possible potential, and there is a time to teach your child how to use this gift of reason. Infants cannot reason nor are they aware of their own existence, yet we know that infanticide is the gravest of all crimes against humanity. How is it then that abortion, the wanton murder of an infant, a child, while that child is residing in what should be the safest place for him, is somehow NOT infanticide of the worst kind?
Simply put, abortion IS infanticide, some people just like to think it’s not in order to somehow justify this insane notion they have that humans somehow have the right to determine who lives and who dies.
