The Ethical Debate –Our Moral Integrity
Giving evidence that the child in the womb is predesigned with cells and organs already functioning-will not likely alter ones viewpoint on ‘if’ an abortion is ethical…especially for hard core believers.
In other words, prenatal facts can help us realize that life is occurring…but does not always change our views on the ethics of abortion. Other arguments that deal with issues ‘outside’ of the mother’s pregnancy will many times influence people’s views on the legitimacy of abortion. It time now to look closely at these ‘other’ arguments…the ethical debate.
It’s a mothers ‘right’ to choose how she treats her body…not the governments
The mother does indeed have rights to govern her body. We need to take this a step further, the mother should be protected by the government to choose how she treats her body…because as an individual her rights should be protected by the authority that is designed to protect her, which is indeed the government. See Gods Political View.
One of the governments main responsibility is to protect the individual, the family, the community and the nations rights and freedoms. ‘All’ have rights and ‘all’ work together…and collectively we should attempt to work to fairly distribute these freedoms and rights-without violating one another in the process. This how our republic operates, with the greatest government system in the world 🙂 See prior link
You see where the facts are taking us. An individual rights need to be protected by the government. This is the pro-choice argument, and most will not deviate from it. The facts listed in section 1 give us the evidence needed that the ‘origin’ of physical life-the individual…is coded in the DNA. Remember, the union of all the DNA starts at conception. That’s when the both pairs of 23 chromosomes combine with the other 23, forming multiples of cells. The ‘development of life’ at this point is indisputably agreed upon. Link
Let’s look at both the plant and animal reproduction. In almost all cases, you have male and female counterparts, and their union matches to form their newly formed DNA code offspring. The development and cell multiplication starts. The complete ‘blueprint’ in the coded DNA is fully formed, all that is left is the ‘development’. Link
Some of the species develops in a pouch, in the soil, in a cocoon etc. Different development stages don’t determine life of the cells, but a ‘different’ phase of their cell development.
Uncovering soil from the top of the plant seedling in the ground a few days early does not begin the life for that seedling. You just uncover the seedling before it breaks into new areas of development-the air and sun. Nothing changes as far as the seedling…the ‘environment changes’ BUT NOT THE SEEDLING! The fundamental DNA design does not change…just the process in the development.
Taking a infant kangaroo outside the pouch of the mom…a few days early…does not change the small kangaroo (ie..dead in the pouch, alive out of the pouch)…the environment changes…but not the kangaroo.
A baby bird that breaks through it’s shell and hour earlier than the one besides it..does not make either chick dead or alive…but just different in stages of development.
A child passing through the birth canal (or a surgical c section) does not make that child dead in the womb and alive after birth, it simply is life moving into a different environment.
For a healthy baby in the womb
-how many indicators give evidence for life…in the thousands.
-How many indicators of a healthy baby giving signs of death-with accurate information ‘0’! Part 1.
Thousands of indicators that the baby is alive-and if the baby has died, we have thousands of indicators that the life process has stopped.
If death occurs in the womb…’all’ the life systems stop and ‘all’ the prenatal life indicators cease. The cell replication stops, the organs development (and functions stop), the heartbeat, brain activity stops…every living thing stops. Life and death is determined by ‘all’ of these incredibly obvious life indicators-signs.
‘LIFE’ and ‘DEATH’ systems inside the womb are EXACTLY the same outside of the womb. There only difference is the stage of development. We don’t have to have a ethical debate to tell it the baby in the womb is living or dead. The standards for life inside the womb are exactly the same outside the womb, if we simply adjust for ‘time’ …giving the baby a chance the grow into their natural environment.
Since the baby does not change because it ‘passes’ through a birthing canal, we cannot argue it is wrong to terminate a life outside the womb, but ethical inside the womb. Again, similar to taking a kangaroo from the pouch, the babies make up does not change. The ‘essence’ of a child does not change simply because it is passing from one phase of life to another. Could this argument be any simpler?? The evidence is black and white.
Note: This is why laws that determine if one is alive or dead outside the womb should be the same as inside the womb.
Should the Human Fetus Be Treated Like an Organ?
As far a treating this human fetus like and organ. What does the evidence indicate? With one hundred percent certainty, take a kidney out and leave it alone. It does not ‘turn into an person’…ever, never…its functions die outside of the environment it was designed for. Deliver a healthy baby…it lives as a human being…just like you and I. The ‘normal unborn baby’ is not an organ but a living individual (person). The scientific empirical evidence proves this thousands of times a day-and the results verify it’s humanity-individuality. We have to start recognizing the facts…the truth that is demonstrated by the evidence. The healthy baby inside the womb is alive and the baby inside the womb is an individual (a person) that ‘has’ organs…just like you and I.
Sincere honesty always intends to help, to bring the truth to light…so we all can live in truth and be ‘lifted up’-edified- by it 🙂
The ‘Rights’ Discussion Closed
The mother does indeed have a right over her body, she is a living individual. She has a right to opt out of surgery, medical care, give a kidney away…the list continues. The fact remains however, when ‘another individual’ is involved, ‘all’ have the right to be protected, this is indeed one of the most important task of the government…to protect ‘the life’ of an individual link. Thus, individual rights have to be protected by the government! This includes all living conditions, stages of well being and development. The science clearly shows ‘life’ exist in all areas of an individuals prenatal growth, (section 1) thus ‘all individuals’ are to be protected by the law.
For many, we believe the life was introduced inside the mother…to give extra protection…not less. Mothers have the upper hand many times on compassion. We men have been told the bonding process ‘inside of her’ during pregnancy gives the two an intimacy that simply goes beyond expression, I am inclined to agree. Having a baby inside of a mother does not determine (or eliminate) the rights of the child, it simply identifies the baby’s protective origin during the first developmental stages. Natural location of an individual does not void ones rights. Both the mother and the unborn have rights to life because both are ‘alive’ and both are ‘human individuals’ as science has proven to us.
The Mothers life is endangered.
Let’s allow a doctor who completed hundreds of abortions (1,200) answer this one. Short Veresion. Full Version
Since medical equipment and monitoring is expensive, Dr. Lavatino was in a metroplex where staff combined most of the abortions in one central area. He states ‘there was never an instance in thousands of abortions cases that were reviewed did any doctor ‘have to’ perform an abortion because of danger to the mothers health. There are times that a pregnancy does indeed endanger the mothers health (section 2, my sister in law) and the baby does need to be removed. The alternative is simple. We need to take the baby, but we will do everything medially possible to allow the child to live. Yes, some babies will not survive…but we will attempt with all of our ability to save them. I do not know one pro-life person who would not agree to this option. Don’t endanger the mom, attempt to save the baby.
