Unborn children deserve life
In response to Anna Keenan’s “A need for abortion access” (Dec. 28), congratulating the Guardian for its ongoing support of abortion: I wondered where I was when they used a photo from New Brunswick in April of 2014.
Congratulations on the birth of your first child. You say that the pregnancy came as a surprise but you were in a good position to ‘choose life’ for your beautiful baby. At what point in your pregnancy did you ‘choose’ and decide that this would indeed be your baby, your child, and not merely a disposable fetus? When did ‘your baby’ become a human being, worthy of the right to life?
Life is life whether convenient or not. You ask pro-lifers to “recognize that not all women believe that abortion is a sin.” I would ask people to recognize that abortion is wrong because it is the premeditated taking of a human life. Every abortion ends a life. Abortion robs a living, growing, human person of the opportunity to live his or her life, and it robs the world of someone who could have made a real difference in the lives of others.
