I think a central issue on abortion is when do our government officials think human life begins. Some politicians think that human life does not begin even after live birth. There’s a question being debated by members of Congress that if an attempted late-term abortion results in a live birth, should all care be taken to preserve the life of the baby? Some politicians argue No! If the original procedure was to be an abortion, the end result should remain an abortion. The live baby should be allowed to die. Some states want laws to force an attempt to save the baby.
Think about this for a minute. It should be a duty of our government to protect the lives of its citizens. If a baby is born live, no matter what the doctor’s intentions are, that live baby, by that time, should be considered a human, and it should become a citizen as soon as it is obvious that is human.
Some people question whether human life begins at conception, and some people have different motives than a purely biological inquiry. If human life never occurs in the womb and some influential politicians argue that human life does not even occur even after live birth, where will those people go with their arguments? How do we teach our children that nobody knows when people become human? At what point between conception and early childhood did our children become American citizens?
Don’t you think all politicians who want our votes to rule our country should hold that we become citizens as soon as we become human? And that is certainly at some point before our live birth.
