Unintended Death

anonymous:

OH MY GOD. So a frozen embryo is a human being? So if I get pregnant and spontaneously miscarry (which, did you know, happens a lot?), did a human being just die? Did my uterus abort the fetus? Should I feel guilty and like shit?

cultureshift:

No, you should not feel guilty about a miscarriage. Yes, a human being just died and yes I know it happens quite often (estimates of miscarriage are at 50% of all pregnancies).

A miscarriage is a natural death. The pro-life stance is that life begins at fertilization and should only end after a natural or unintended death. Any intentional intervention to end an innocent living human being’s life at any point between these two moments is an injustice.
