Have you ever wondered where pro-lifers get their facts from?  Why do they claim abortion is killing a human beings, based on “modern medical science?”  Why do they say there is  new information that shows abortion is wrong…much more so than there was almost four decades ago when Roe v. Wade was decided?  What are these pro-lifers talking about??

There is a 71 page paper that everyone in America should read.  Go here:  http://www.dakotavoice.com/Docs/South%20Dakota%20Abortion%20Task%20Force%20Report.pdf.   In 71 pages, this report extensively details the modern scientific proof of the humanity and separate, unique life of the unborn child.  No one who claims to truly believe in choice should turn away from at least reading the current evidence for human life in the womb…

Based on testimony from expert geneticists and embryologists, the Task Force agreed, “There can no longer be any doubt that each human being is totally unique from the very beginning of his or her life at fertilization.”[1]

The Task Force quoted extensive testimony from Dr. David Fu-Chi Mark, a nationally celebrated molecular biologist who has patented various polymerase chain reaction techniques, been awarded Inventor of the Year for patenting Human Recombinant Interleukin-2 Muteins, which treats kidney and skin cancer, developed an internationally marketed drug to treat Multiple Sclerosis, and is known for his work in DNA cloning, in vitro modification of DNA, and DNA sequencing.[2]  Dr. Mark testified:

A human being at an embryonic age and that human being at an adult
age are naturally the same, the biological differences are due only to the
differences in maturity. Changes in methylation of cytosine demonstrate that
the human being is fully programmed for human growth and development for his or
her entire life at the one cell age.

New evidence and research continues to come out which shows that abortion is incompatible with a humane, compassionate society.  Phillip G. Ney, M.D., is a physician, child psychiatrist, psychologist, university professor, and an expert in child abuse.  He states,

“After forty years as a consultant psychiatrist,
clinical researcher and university professor, I have no doubt that abortion is
the most destructive and dehumanizing experience known to humanity.  Unfortunately, it remains legal and
commonplace, devastating the lives of children, mothers, fathers—of
everyone….[T]he testimony of those who performed abortion, or were harmed by
it, will soon become well known.

And their anguish will be heard.”[1]

    Know what? I think most of them do know and tragically, just don’t care.

      I tend to agree with you. There’s simply no scientific logic in truly believing that abortion ISN’T killing a living human. This isn’t a religious issue, it’s a basic fact of biological science. Proponents of “choice” always want to make it a religious issue in order to create the illusion of personal decision rather than fundamental universal laws of humanity, the first of which is that humans do not have the right to murder one another. So many reasonably educated citizens today think that people ought to be legally permitted to choose to abort their embryos or fetuses that it’s clearly a matter of knowing but deliberately disregarding the reality of it. They insult the intelligence of their own society.

    • Hi Mary, Thanks for taking the time to comment. However, I do not allow comments on this blog when people make accusations against others. Obviously, I have no way of verifying if a person’s accusations or true or not. Plus, the point of my blog is not for people to accuse each other, but to talk about issues. In addition, I do not allow comments recommending pro-choice websites. Thanks for understanding.

    Hi Kristi,

    Thanks so much for the info on your blog! I so wish that more people understood (and cared about) the harm that abortion causes, both in the moment and in the future, and that it really is a baby, not just tissue. Keep it up!!

    Lori
