All Children Are Equal

anonymous:

Would you force your ten year old daughter to give birth to her rapist’s child?

You miss the point. When you and others like you realize that we are the same human being from the moment of fertilization until our death, that our value remains equal throughout this time, abortion will become unthinkable. I was apparently born with that common sense realization because abortion has always been unthinkable to me.

Because I know that a preborn child and a born child are only separated by time and a cervix, it would be as impossible for me to allow my ten year old daughter to kill her son or daughter in the womb as it would be for me to allow her to kill him or her in their crib. It’s unthinkable for me either way.

It is completely irrelevant how a child is conceived. The child is innocent and should not receive the death penalty for the crimes of his or her biological father.

So, yes, I would explain the value of human life to my ten year old daughter who would then agree to protect my grandson’s or granddaughter’s life as if it were her own. That is how parenting works. You instill values into your children that guides them in moral decision making.
