The founding of an entire nation was forged on the
principle that all men are created equal under the law.
This is the essence of our Declaration of Independence and
the philosophy behind the Constitution. We, throughout
history, have made certain that ALL people in this country
are equal before the law. We have declared that there is no
such thing as sub-humans -- and that NO human being's
rights are superior to another human being.
If we want to live by the premises that we set up in this
country, then we cannot overlook ANY human being -- NO ONE
can be excluded. Unfortunately, there are, however, human
beings that are being ignored and are not protected. These
are labeled as the fetus.
The group that calls itself "Pro-Choice", believes that a
human being is considered alive when, and only when it has
fully developed and is fully grown.
If this definition is
true, then most of us never reach the stage of being
"alive" and therefore can be killed. Since the human specie
is only fully grown at adulthood, therefore, by that
definition it wouldn't matter if a baby were shot and
killed on the street. Throughout life, human beings go
through various stages of development ; the baby becomes
the little child, who then becomes the teenager, and then
grows up to become the adult. From the moment of
conception, the human being passes from one stage of
development to the next..
The Pro-Choice group argues that an unborn child does not
resemble what is called "alive" and cannot feel pain. The
question then arises of whether or not an unborn child can
feel pain? If it can, then does that not resemble life? If
one accepts that an unborn child is not an eating,
