Life starts at conception

Some advocates of legal abortion have argued that since theologians can’t agree on when life begins, Roe v. Wade should stand.

These pro-choicers are trying to accomplish two things: casting abortion as a religious issue, and implying that the pro-abortion mentality is morally valid.

Abortionists know that if they achieve these goals, they’re home-free. They can do whatever they want to women and children, because Americans respect others’ religious beliefs.

The question of when an individual human being’s life begins is a clear scientific one, and the simple fact is that no modern medical text shows life to begin at any time other than the moment of conception. The fact that life begins at conception is a proven scientific fact that all the pro-abortion rhetoric in the world can’t alter. But when you have them nailed on scientific grounds, abortion fanatics drag religion into the discussion.

It’s about time the American people stopped letting these radical abortion fanatics get away with such a cheap trick.
