There’s something about compassion that causes society to say, ‘We’re going to take this person seriously.’ Take Mother Teresa. She was confrontational on abortion, but she wasn’t rejected by society.
Destruction of the embryo in the mother’s womb is a violation of the right to live which God has bestowed upon this *nascent life. To raise the question whether we are here concerned already with a human being or not is merely to confuse the issue. The simple fact is that God certainly intended to create a human being and that this nascent being has been deliberately deprived of his life. And that is nothing but murder.
*nascent: just coming into existence and beginning to display signs of future potential.
