Rights before birth

In “Pro-Birth or Pro-Life?”, the definition of “pro-life” as given by the writer — that it “ap­plies to the rights and respect everyone should be entitled to after birth” — is false. A human being has rights even before the journey outside the mother’s body. A person does not achieve or earn those rights by being able to “survive to term.” A person is a unique being right from the start. There was much written about immigration and gun laws, but there is no respect for human beings if we allow killing by abortion. In fact, winking at abortion screams so loudly that it is hard to listen to anything else. It is unbiblical to suggest that a person earns humanity by surviving to term.
