POINTS TO PONDER!

Steven Jacobs, a Ph.D. student at the University of Chicago, submitted his dissertation that included his findings after interviewing 2,899 American adults whose background and training made the excellent candidates to answer the question: When does human life begin. Even pro-choice individuals said it came at conception. They were then asked who they thought would be the best the most qualified to answer the question of when human life begins. 81% of them said, biologists.

So, Jacobs then interviewed thousands of biologists, including pro-choice individuals, asking them three questions: (1) Does the development of a mammal begin at the moment of fertilization? Over 90% said yes. (2) Does fertilization mark the beginning of a human’s life? Over 75% said yes. (3) When does life begin? 90% of respondents who described themselves as “very pro-life” said life begins at the moment of fertilization, as did 75% of those who called themselves “pro-choice” and around 60% of those who identified themselves as “very pro-choice.”

How clearly this tells us that all the propaganda we read in newspapers, magazines, on radio and television shows, as well as “very pro-choice” politicians and judges that declare abortion is a human right, fail to recognize that the majority of Americans, even some of their fellow pro-choice comrades, believe that the real human right is to be free to live. Sadly, we live in a day and age when killing a newborn puppy or kitten can get a person a fine or even jail time, but killing a new human being is the mother’s or doctor’s right.

How quickly they had forgotten what God said in His word: “Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you, and before you were born, I consecrated you.[1] Not only that, but the Psalmist wrote: “Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward.[2] So the taking of a helpless, innocent child before birth is an insult to our Creator. Punishment may not be given here on earth, but I would hate to stand before God and tell Him why I purposely killed one of His children whom He destined to be a great contributor for mankind’s benefit and a soul-winner for Christ. – Dr. Robert R. Seyda
