I’m curious. Since most of your logic centers around “there is never a good enough reason to kill another human,” do you feel there’s ever a case where killing another is justified? Such as self-defense (if someone was going to rape or kill me, and I had to kill him to get away, I would). Or the death penalty? If you feel either of these things is justified, then what, in your mind, makes a fetus different?

If you read my blog carefully, you will notice that I often use the term ‘innocent human being’. The examples you listed above do not include innocent human beings. We have every right to defend ourselves.

The difference between a rapist attempting to violate and kill you and a prenatal child should be readily apparent, but I’ll illuminate the difference just in case you’re genuinely confused. A child in the womb is devoid of guilt and didn’t ask to be conceived. He or she simply does what we were all programmed by our DNA to do following our conception — grow. Even a killer was once a prenatal child and deserved every right to live while gestating because they had yet to commit a violent crime warranting the self defense of another. Once we become adults we become responsible for our own actions, to include the action of harming others. And we should be held accountable when our actions hurt others, whether through rape, murder, torture, abuse, or abortion.

Abortion kills an innocent living human being.
