Some people hold the view that abortion is justifiable because the unborn aren’t persons. The personhood argument fails on many levels, but what is amusing and illuminating is when the materialist crowd debates its elusive definition.
What happened to, “We only trust what science tells us?” and that we can only trust empirical evidence?
Secular embryology textbooks are remarkably clear about when life begins and thus what is killed during an abortion. The unborn are human beings at a particular stage of development, though people try to dehumanize them with labels such as fetus. But what kind of fetus is it? Human. Science could not be more clear.
So why do the science-only folks get all philosophical when it comes to rationalizing abortion?
It is amazing the lengths people will go to in justifying abortion, even when they have to abandon their usual worldview to do so.
Even Planned Parenthood used to concede the humanity of the unborn. What scientific discoveries did they find to change their minds? Or was it a monetary discovery?
As always, remember that forgiveness and healing is possible for those who have participated in the abortion process.
