The Thorn that Devalues Humanity

prochoice002prochoiceDear Friends for Life:   Why is there such an obsession by governments and institutions to oppress and victimize mothers, fathers, and children through forced abortion, use of contraceptives and involuntary sterilization? What fuels this evil creation labeled: “The abortion industry.” The answer falls into two primary areas: (1) scare tactics: women loosing their freedom to choose, (2) money: suppressing morality.

The most recent is a declaration of OAS experts on violence against women calling for the legalization of abortion in all countries in the Americas – from Canada to Chile, including the USA. (Excerpt) “…guaranteeing that women and adolescents have immediate access to affordable contraceptives, including emergency oral contraceptives, which reduce the primary role of women to motherhood and prevent them from making decisions about their sexuality and reproduction.” (Question: what violence is this based on?)

A group of pro-abortion European organizations has launched a petition to the European Parliament calling for access to legal abortion in all EU Member States, demanding “guarantees that human rights standards related to the access to safe and legal abortion are respected by all member states.” (Is this not a contradiction: human rights and killing babies?)

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAPromoting abortion as a public health issue, Mozambique has decided to pass a law which will “legalize abortion up to 12 weeks for reasons of physical or mental health, up to 16 weeks in cases of rape or incest, and up to 24 weeks in cases of “severe fetal malformation.” (What “public health issues”? Human Beings are “public health issues”?)

While the UN reports over 160 million girls are missing from the world today, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors has unanimously approved a resolution rejecting bans on sex-selection abortions. (Question: who protects those babies not selected?)

In the US, Dr Laura Lederer, former Senior Advisor on Trafficking in Persons for the State Department, states in her study – “The Health Consequences of Sex Trafficking and Their Implications for Identifying Victims in Healthcare Facilities” – that forced abortion is an “especially disturbing trend in sex trafficking”. Reason? Forced abortions perpetuate the cycle of violence of sex trafficking, hiding the crimes and further victimizing the young women enslaved. (greed/money)

THESE CALLS FOR THE LEGALIZATION OF ABORTION conflict with established international human rights laws, and with cultural and religious beliefs that value the lives of children in the womb. (Is there no outcry from the international “Silent Majority” of people?)

The American Convention on Human Rights affirmed in 1969 under Article 4, the Right to Life: “Every person has the right to have his life respected. This right shall be protected by law and, in general, from the moment of conception. No one shall be arbitrarily deprived of his life.” THIS DOES NOT EXCLUDE ANY “AGE BRACKET” FROM THE HUMAN LIFELINE, ie. from the beginning of their biological development as human beings until their deaths.

Abortion openly destroys the meaning of Article 4. ABORTION IS AN EVIL which not only contradicts the Right to Life but also devalues humanity. History will judge this current generation as a barbaric race of selfish people who sacrificed millions and millions of babies on the altar of abortion.

Is this the legacy we want to leave for future generations?

life(The Difference is LIFE)  “The prohibition against killing patients… stands as the first promise of self-restraint sworn to in the Hippocratic Oath, as medicine’s primary taboo: ‘I will neither give a deadly drug to anybody if asked for it, nor will I make a suggestion to this effect’… In forswearing the giving of poison when asked for it, the Hippocratic physician rejects the view that the patient’s choice for death can make killing him right. For the physician, at least, human life in living bodies commands respect and reverence–by its very nature. – Addie Clark Harding
