“Using the ancients’ lack of knowledge as a measurement for today’s decisions is pointless… My biology degree made me pro-life, years before my religious faith did.”

Think being against abortion is all about RELIGON? 

THINK AGAIN.

ProChoicer States:

“But from waaay back in human ancestry, in almost all cultures, women have had the option of terminating pregnancies until the baby quickens (moves in the womb).

Correction:

” No, no, no. People believed that the baby wasn’t alive until he or she received a soul, at which point the baby moved. They used the science they had, and we have the same obligation. When we allow science to inform us with the truth, we realize that the baby is an individual, growing and developing uniquely from the moment of conception. Using the ancients’ lack of knowledge as a measurement for today’s decisions is pointless. To be consistent, we should embrace all of their understanding and remedies and start leeching for fevers and banging drums for pollution. My biology degree made me pro-life, years before my religious faith did.”
