Can I just say that thank god I am not any of your kids. If I was ten and I was raped, and you manipulated and forced me to carry the rapist’s fetus because you saw it as having more importance than me, I would hate you for the rest of my life. If I did carry the baby, I would never let you see it. If I put it up for adoption, I would make sure it never knew you, or even your name. I would tell its parents to tell her/him what you would have put me through, just because a fetus had more value.

I have never deluded myself that changing our culture of death to one of life would be an easy task. The idea that the age of the mother is inversely related to the value of her prenatal child is a sociological construct feeding a psychological aversion to the realities of evolutionary reproduction.

Try to see this from someone who embraces a culture of life:

EMBRYO = FETUS = INFANT = TODDLER = PRESCHOOLER = SCHOOL AGED CHILD = TEENAGER = YOUNG ADULT = ADULT = ELDERLY

This is the view based on our current culture of death:

{EMBRYO, FETUS} ≠ {INFANT, TODDLER, PRESCHOOLER, SCHOOL AGED CHILD, TEENAGER, YOUNG ADULT, ADULT, ELDERLY}

A culture of death can very easily result in this:

{EMBRYO, FETUS, INFANT, ELDERLY} ≠ {TODDLER, PRESCHOOLER, SCHOOL AGED CHILD, TEENAGER, YOUNG ADULT, ADULT}

As you can see from the first equation, I don’t view a human being at the fetal stage of development as more important than a ten year old. They hold equal value. Asking me to let my ten year old kill her prenatal child is like asking a grandparent to choose between killing their own child or their child’s toddler.

You would hate me for the rest of my life because you have not yet embraced the first equation. You still view life in terms of the second equation. You still embrace a culture of death that makes you believe that killing prenatal human beings is the right thing to do. But you don’t have to die on the wrong side of history. Here’s how to reclaim your lost humanity.
