Anti-abortion advocates hinge their arguments on the concept that “If it’s alive, it deserves protection.” Really? Think about that for a minute.
A sperm and egg cell can combine to make a new cell which, UNDER THE PROPER CONDITIONS, will eventually turn into a human being.
Each and every one of the trillions of cells in a human body is a living thing. And, with modern cloning techniques, it can serve as the host for inserted DNA and itself become a zygote which, UNDER THE PROPER CONDITIONS, will become a person.
Thus, every time some “pro-life” person scratches his nose, he’s killing off not only existing living things but thousands of potential people.
About one out of five pregnancies ends in miscarriage, making God the most prolific abortionist of all time! Role model, you think?
The self-proclaimed pro-life* crowd is entirely too obsessive about the imaginary people they claim to be concerned about. They need to calm down, switch off their circuit diagrams, get out of their blueprints, sit in the shade of their acorns, listen to the pleasant songs of the eggs, and stop to smell the pollen.
