Why am I pro-life? It’s a matter of life and death
By: Kim Ketola
Here’s the logic of being prolife from Philosopher Stephen Schwarz, Ph.D.:
It is wrong to intentionally kill an innocent human being.
Abortion intentionally kills an innocent human being.
Therefore abortion is wrong.
If you agree with the first two premises, you can’t avoid the conclusion.
Most of us agree that it’s wrong to kill without cause. But I find often people are honestly confused about when life begins.
Yet, it can be known medically, philosophically, and theologically that each human life begins and has value at conception. With over one millions lives on the line and being taken by abortion every year, it’s important that we seek out the answers instead of saying we just don’t know.
In the time it has taken you to read this message, at least two lives have been lost to abortion.
That’s 120 every hour, 3000 5very day, over one million annually. Take a minute today to share the truth—it’s only logical to protect unborn life.
Take this to heart:
“Rescue those being led away to death; hold back those staggering toward slaughter. If you say, “But we knew nothing about this,” does not he who weighs the heart perceive it? Does not he who guards your life know it? Will he not repay everyone according to what they have done?” Proverbs 24:11-12
I am pro-life because it’s a matter of life and death.
