I Don't Understand the Pro-Life Movement
By parentwin on March 01, 2011
Rather, I don't understand certain factions of the pro-life movement. I mean, what is it they stand for, anyway?
For most of my life, I thought that pro-lifers believed life began at conception, and therefore it would be murder to abort a fetus at any stage. This puts the needs of the fetus before the choice of the mother and her right to her body. The crux of the argument is that at conception, a child is a child and no longer simply part of the mother's body.
Why, then, would some members of the pro-life movement choose to fight for a bill that proposes outlawing abortions after the first heartbeat can be medically detected?
