This time, Alliance Defense Fund has the story here: http://www.adfmedia.org/News/PRDetail/4920. In basic detail, a federal judge in Indiana upheld the provision of the new Indiana law that requires women to be told that “human physical life begins when a human ovum is fertilized by a human sperm.”
Now, of course, this statement is not a novel, new scientific fact. It’s basic science. But, as you likely know, in Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court claimed to believe that medical professionals didn’t agree on when a human was a human. Today, federal courts are increasingly ruling that human beings are human beings from the very beginning. They are also increasingly disagreeing with Planned Parenthood’s claims that basic biological facts are “misleading.” See ADF’s press release for more info on this…
Of course, this ruling raises the questions we want to hear asked in the public, in the media, and in the courts: how can a human not be a person? And how can a human person not be deserving of full protection under the laws…including–and especially–the right to life? We are so tired of the contradictions concerning life in our society! Life should be valued and protected at all costs.
I honestly believe that abortion will end in our lifetime. And I pray to God that it will. What an incredible injustice…and, in our society…what an incredible contradiction. Some laws–like the Indiana one–recognize unborn children as full human beings. There is also a major federal law that recognizes unborn children as persons (more on that coming soon!). And yet abortion is still somehow, unthinkably, legal.
