When around 100,000 people march through our nation’s capital Friday for the annual March for Life, they won’t be there out of concern for “clusters of cells” — but to defend human lives and human rights.
The New York Times editorial board recently decried federal and state government attempts to afford legal protection to “clusters of cells that have not yet developed into viable human beings.” This was the cold and deceptive language used to describe vulnerable human beings.
Deceitful language has long been employed by supporters of abortion to depict the life inside of a mother’s womb as something other than a human baby. This has been done for decades in order to hide the truth about what abortion really is: the intentional killing of a human being.
This year, organizers of the March for Life decided to focus on the science of human fertilization with their theme “Unique from Day One”:
“Medical and technological advancements continue to reaffirm the science behind the pro-life cause — that life begins at fertilization, or day one, when egg meets sperm and a new, unique, human embryo is created,” March for Life organizers wrote on their website. “When life begins and the stages of prenatal development are scientific facts.”
“Humanity — and our uniqueness as individuals — begins at day one, at fertilization. Life, in its most vulnerable form, should be protected,” they continued. “That, in essence, is why we march. We march to end abortion, with the vision of a world where the beauty, dignity, and uniqueness of every human life are valued and protected.”
Despite the overwhelming scientific evidence confirming the humanity of life in the womb, The New York Times still goes with “clusters of cells” to describe these human beings. They want to ignore the humanity of the unborn.
To cover up the greatest human rights abuse and social justice issue of our time.
“Gay rights,” “gender justice,” and all the rest of the pet causes of today’s social justice warriors pale in comparison to the brutal injustice of legalized abortion — which has caused the deaths of 60 million individuals in America since Roe v. Wade was decided in 1973.
In 2016, University of North Carolina researchers published a study showing that abortion is the leading cause of death in the United States each year.
The authors of the paper wrote, “There is no credible scientific opposition to the fact that a genetically distinct human life begins at conception and that an induced abortion is a death. … [R]efusing to acknowledge abortion as a death undermines the role of science and the value of transparency so fundamental to a free society.”
Just last month, Breitbart reported that abortion was the leading cause of death worldwide in 2018 — with more than 41 million killed last year. The data came from Worldometers, a statistics gathering group that “was voted as one of the best free reference websites by the American Library Association (ALA), the oldest and largest library association in the world.”
This scale of human death is staggering.
We must stop allowing politicians, media pundits, and abortion activists to pretend abortion is anything other than a means to intentionally kill another human being. Dispensing with the euphemisms and embracing the science is the only way to have an honest conversation about abortion — and why we must end this unprecedented human rights abuse and tragic loss of life.
