Employees of abortion organizations carefully hide information from women about what an abortion really is and how a child looks in the first trimester of pregnancy. They try to suggest that the fetus has nothing to do with a human being and does not at all look like a person. One of the brightest complaints against activists of the pro-life movements is—no, they are not arguments about hardships, responsibility, unpreparedness, health consequences, not at all, nor they are shouts: “if you do not allow a woman to have an abortion, raise her child!”—the most striking claim is: prolife activists deprive a woman of choice when they tell her the truth about abortion and the human fetus.
One might assume that pro-abortion activists and specialists really limit themselves to the destruction of only those who supposedly “do not look like a human being,” and indeed act on some scientific grounds. However, in reality there is no such logic here. The development of abortion policy clearly shows that neither human appearance, nor even the ability to independently exist, nor even the fact of birth stop them. Some time ago, pro-abortion specialists shocked the public by lobbying for abortion at a later date – when a child is formed, his brain works, and he is able to feel and experience emotions. Now they are fighting to make it legal to kill children already born. Maybe there are “scientific grounds” and “obvious data from the course of biology” for this? Of course, this is impossible to imagine. From the very beginning, it is simply about legalizing the killing of people, about dehumanizing as such.
It is enough to call at least one period in a person’s life “inhuman” in order to find further grounds for dehumanizing other large segments of human life. It is enough to admit that one arbitrary feature supposedly makes a human being “not human” – be it small size, underdevelopment of organs or inability to physically function independently – and one can expand the criteria more and more, and find a lot of “arguments” to question the right to life of a person of any age and state of health. In fact, the life of a person is one and the same thing from the moment of conception until natural death, and from the moment of conception it is the life of a person.
Abortion activists are currently moving towards “broadening the criteria.” A glaring example of this is the campaign Center for Reproductive Rights in El Salvador runs to protect mothers sentenced to prison for killing newborn babies. The Center’s specialists demand to reconsider the sentences and present that the killing of babies is a “miscarriage”, “a consequence of pregnancy complications” and “abortion”.
Moreover, these cases are used in order to achieve legalization of abortion in El Salvador (it is prohibited there), insisting that women in this country are imprisoned “for abortion”, and at the same time convincing the public that if abortions were allowed, such stories would not happen.
The specialists of the Center, supported by the International Planned Parenthood Federation (the main protagonist of the availability and maximum expansion of legal abortions up to “postnatal” in the world), are involved in the cases of 17 women who have committed the murder of their newborn children. 9 women have already been pardoned, and charges have been dropped for 5 of them, although the murders committed cannot be called “complications” – the children were strangled, stabbed to death, drowned in sedimentation tanks, etc. Judges and the media, contrary to evidence and testimony, side with women and spread false information. This year, one of the mothers sentenced to 30 years died in prison from an illness, and her story was immediately raised on the flag against the “cruel anti-abortion law”, the drowning of a child by a dead woman in a sump is called a “miscarriage”, and this is how the case is presented by CBS.
It is clear that the abortion industry was originally an infanticide industry. Now its activists are forcing society to recognize the murder of a newborn as an abortion, and “unwillingness to have a child” is a sufficient reason to strangle, drown and stab children already born with impunity. This only confirms that all the “justifications” for abortion, all references to “biology” and “fetal development” were just a cover, preparation for society to recognize any infanticide as legal. Whose murder will be legalized next?
