There are increasing legal protections put in place for the life and well-being of animals, including endangered species… as well as dogs and cats.
The federal Born-Alive Infants Protection Act of 2002 says that when a child is born alive, including having a beating heart, he or she is a legal person and has a right to lifesaving medical care.
Unfortunately, several states have removed this protection for the most vulnerable, innocent Americans among us.
I love animals, but my respect for humanity far surpasses that love. The thought of killing babies at any point in development is abhorrent to me—an adopted child who started my life in an unplanned pregnancy—but to kill a child who just survived an abortion is unthinkable!
I’ve been told by friends and family that I will be unable to change the hearts and minds of those who see abortion as an acceptable choice—even a right—because there is value only in living people.
These people claim that the costs and hardships of bringing certain people into the world outweighs any good that might come from their existence.
They prefer to choose certain death after the choice has been made to have sex. They choose a violent end in the womb for their own child instead of accepting the challenge this new life would present.
I know so many people who were almost aborted, and not one of them is sad that their mom chose life instead. In fact, such people are often more cherished when it becomes apparent that they might have been killed for no damn good reason.
60 million Americans are missing from today’s society.
But some people would rather focus on saving turtles and protecting puppies.
Where is compassion for the baby humans? I believe that there is enough love in this world for EVERYONE. Every individual life matters.
