Whether you believe in Intelligent Design, biblical Creation, theistic evolution, or atheistic evolution- it is an irrefutable truth that every ‘product of conception,’ every fertilized human egg, each and every zygote, foetus, or unborn child, has one human being in the entire world who is genetically designed to nurture this new, unique, and distinct creation.
One person, genetically designed to nurture this new person, created (98% of the time) as the logical conclusion of a chosen activity, an activity itself designed, whether you think by nature or by Nature’s God, for reproduction.
It’s a complete revulsion against nature, against our humanity, when that one human being in the entire world specifically designed for the nurture and protection of this new, genetically distinct offspring turns around and slaughters it. We understand this when we can see the child. A mother killing her own child is an especially egregious crime.
That distinct tiny human being is a person, with DNA unique to his or her self, with a blood type that may or may not match the mother’s, and with his or her very own distinct fingerprints. “My body, my choice” is a lie. It’s not the mother’s body that is being killed, deprived of life in an abortion.
In Chile, where abortion is also apparently legal, a teenaged girl recently discovered that the notion that it’s ‘her body’ is a legal fiction, when she tried to sell her unborn child on facebook. She could murder that unborn child, but she was not allowed to sell him or her.
Oh, the contradictions and contortions we twist ourselves around all in order to avoid acknowledging the fact that one human being in the whole world genetically designed to nurture and protect you should not kill you.
