At its core, stating that one has the right to life ought to, in a civilized society, be pretty easily understood.  It says, “Hey, put down that gun, you can’t kill him/her….” 

 

Some will say, “Hey, we support the right to life, it’s simply a matter of when life begins.”  Ok, show me the data that states the exact moment when life begins.  We can’t find a solid scientific answer for this.  So let’s just say, screw it, and err on the side of convenience and death….

Or, we could err on the other side.  The 2nd-3rd Century Church Father Tertullian’s says;

“For us (Christians) murder is once for all forbidden; so even the child in the womb, while yet the mother’s blood is still being drawn on to form the human being, it is not lawful to destroy. To forbid birth is only quicker murder. It makes no difference whether one take away the life once born or destroy it as it comes to birth. He is a man, who is to be a man, the fruit is always present in the seed.” (1)

Any rationale mind that does not advocate anarchy and the arbitrary destruction of human life would have to see that at the very least; one is taking a large chance in ending an innocent life by conducting an abortion…. 

What I am saying is that for the most part, the two sides of the debate are focused on two very different objectives.  The pro-life side with preserving life in accordance with our founding principles.  The pro-abortion side is focused on rights.  But whose rights?  Well, it’s obviously not the rights of the unborn.  It’s rights of the very, very, very born; people that are able to reproduce…. 

So what does this position of the pro-abortionist have in common with the defining statement of the founding of the United States? 

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”   

Well, one would have to say, not a single, solitary thing…. 

There are two groups in America today as it relates to Life, the group that believes and follows the founding principles of our country and the group that does not.  The pro-abortion group has already decided that ALL men are NOT created with the right to life.  Who gets the right to life is for the reproductive masses to decide.

  1. Hello Young American. I missed you for FFQF yesterday. I was just wondering if everything is OK and you are still able to participate. It’s not too late! And if you don’t get to it this week, you can still do it next Friday.

    I also noticed your two latest posts are missing. I hope you are not having blog trouble. 😦

    When you can, could you let me know how everything is coming? I’ll still be waiting for your FFQF post.
