There are truths that reach out to all of us when we consider the act of abortion. One truth is self-evident. An evolution in the womb will inevitably create a life. Abortion ends that process, regardless of your beliefs in the timing of a heartbeat or in the moment of conception.
The Freedom of Choice Act is a socially poised legislation to give women who do not want a baby permission to terminate the pregnancy “prior to fetal viability” for any reason, and prohibits interference with the mother’s choice. Who determines “fetal viability?”
The real issue of abortion lies within the reasons behind the choice. The reasons are self-serving without consideration for the respect of a life being created. Are we so omnipotent that we can choose to end a life? Doesn’t every being have the “right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness?” Who are we to interfere with these basic human rights?
Whatever your beliefs, we acknowledge that there is a process in the womb that will eventually result in creation of a life. Interfering with that process, abortion, will end it. We, the people, do not have that right.
