11. “Every woman should have control over her own body. Reproductive Freedom is a basic right.”

11a. “Abortion assures that 650,000 females each year do not have control over their bodies.”

” About twenty million females have died from abortion since it was legalized. A female killed by abortion no longer has a body or a life and will never have the privilege of controlling one.”

11b. “Not all things done with a person’s body are right, nor should they all be legally protected.”

“Prostitution is usually illegal. So is taking certain drugs. Most of us agree with these laws, yet they all restrict our freedom to do certain things with our bodies. The key question is whether what is done with one person’s body brings significant harm to others. Clearly, abortion does.”

1. “It is uncertain when human life begins; that’s a religious question that cannot be answered by science.”

1a.  If there is uncertainty about when human life begins, the benefit of the doubt should go to preserving life.

Shouldn’t we give the benefit of the doubt to life?  Otherwise we are saying, “This may or may bot be a child, therefore it’s all right to destroy it.”

1b.  Medical textbooks and scientific reference works consistently agree that human life begins at conception.

Many people have been told that there is no medical or scientific consensus as to when human life begins.  This is simply untrue.  Among those scientists who have no vested interests in the abortion issue, there is overwhelming consensus that human life begins at conception.  (Conception is the moment when the egg is fertilized by the sperm, bringing into existence the zygote, which is a genetically distinct individual).
