ABORTION: Where rights end

| May 29, 2020 1:00 AM

Dr. Cutting insincerely argues that we who don’t support the elective murder of unborn children think of “back-alley abortions” as good. The argument of pro-life individuals was never that we want only a few to happen. We are first disgusted by the mass endorsement of the act, and second, heartbroken that, to date, well over 55 million individuals have either had their bodies torn apart, their brains injected with poison, or their spine cut in half.

Dr. Cutting, having delivered so many babies from the womb, surely cannot be so morally blind as to think it is the first breath of air that makes us human. Even if the whole world was performing back-alley abortions and dying from the consequences, the issue remains the same: Life starts at conception, and it is no one’s “right” to end it.
