March for Life holds its annual gathering in Washington D.C. today. This year’s theme is, “Unique From Day One.”
This informative commentary, “Why Science Strengthens the Pro-Life Argument,” by Andrea Picciotti-Bayer, is definitely worth your time.
Scientific and medical advances have impacted the Supreme Court Roe v. Wade decision in ways that could not be envisioned in 1973. Ultrasound wondrously shows fetal development, a beating heart and an undeniable, unique, human life —- even allowing parents to know the sex of their preborn child. Familial DNA, telling our generational story, is affixed from conception.
Agents of depriving life to preborn humans are celebrating the legal ability to destroy it. A breakfast event, held at the San Diego Hilton Resort and Spa advertises itself as the “46th Anniversary of Roe v. Wade Breakfast Celebration.” It’s hosted by a group known by the dubious moniker, “Coalition for Reproductive Justice.” The question of whether it’s just to murder the defenseless within what should be the safest place on earth —- their mother’s womb —- is of no consequence to the celebrants who sell event tables for up to $2500. The San Diego “celebration” is one among many across the country.
Undeniably, life begins at conception. Medical advances now allow successful surgeries to be performed on preborn babies, providing incontrovertible evidence that life begins long before birth and what abortion proponents describe as a ‘clump of cells” is actually a growing baby whose life matters.
Web MD provides this spectacular slide show titled, “Fetal development month by month,” detailing a baby’s growth from conception to birth.
