There are some in the pro-choice movement who even go as far as to concede the scientific fact that human life begins at conception, yet claim that preborn lives should not be protected because they are not yet considered citizens or able to be included on tax forms.
This argument would be laughable if it were not for the seriousness of the issue.
Abortion is a procedure that has no other purpose than ending a human life.
If simply being recognized as an American citizen or being included on a tax form is supposed to be the criteria for having one’s life protected, then by this same reasoning one should be able to take the life of tourists and illegal immigrants indiscriminately.
This logic is both utterly absurd and offensive.
Every life in existence has inherent value and should be respected.
The life of an American is worth no more and no less than any other life.
The life of a newly conceived human is no more or less value than the life of someone in his or her thirties.
It is the responsibility of every society to recognize, respect, and protect all human life, not just the ones who happen to pay the bills or have a loud voice.
