Fetal Development:

18 days:
Heart begins to beat (Even today the most common way to determine that someone is dead is probably to check for pulse or heat beat. So if we say you're dead when your heart stops, shouldn't we say you're alive when your heart starts?)
40 days:
Brain waves can be measured with an Electronencephalogram
(Today we declare someone to be legally dead when his brain waves cease. So if the end of brainwaves marks the legal end of life, perhaps the start of brainwaves should mark the legal start of life?)
2 months:
All body systems functioning
Ultrasound has seen babies this age sucking their thumbs
3 months:
Capable of hearing and the child breathes amniotic fluid.
4-5 months:
Baby can kick hard enough for his mother to feel it.

When does Life Begin?

The life of a baby begins long before he or she is born. A new individual human being begins growing in the mother's uterus at fertilization and, if the baby's life is not interrupted, he or she will someday become an adult man or woman. Worldwide, over 46 million unborn babies are killed each year. In the United States over 39 million unborn babies have been killed since abortion was legalized n 1973 and more than 1.3 million are killed each year.

As the world-renowned French geneticist Jerome LeJeune asserted, "To accept the fact that after fertilization has taken place a new human has come into being is no longer a matter of taste or opinion. The human nature of the human being from conception to old age is not a matter of metaphysical contention, it is plain experimental evidence."

The scientific evidence is beyond dispute:

  • The unborn baby is alive from the moment of fertilization.

  • The unborn baby has a heartbeat at three weeks and brain waves at six weeks.

  • The unborn baby is complete. He or she is programmed from the inside for an ongoing     process of growth and development.

  • The unborn baby has 46 chromosomes in the cells of his or her body - the scientifically verifiable human genetic code.

  • The unborn baby from the moment of fertilization is a unique human being - never to be repeated in all of history.

Nothing magic occurs at birth which suddenly makes an unborn baby human. The baby is the same baby, whether inside or outside the uterus. Every unborn baby is a complete, individual living human being from the earliest moment of his or her existence at fertilization. Unfortunately, in the United States it is legal to kill that developing child by abortion for all nine months of pregnancy for any reason.

Abortion Defined:

Abortion ends a pregnancy by destroying and removing the developing child either in utero or while the child is being born (Partial Birth Abortion). Abortion is an act of violence that kills an unborn child and hurts the mother who has one.

Since 1973, when the United States Supreme Court Roe v. Wade decision legalized abortion for all nine months of a woman's pregnancy for any reason, at least 41 million unborn children have been killed legally by the violence of abortion. This violence currently occurs 1.3 million times a year (3,300 times a day) in America.

The victims of abortion are not only the pre-born children who die but also their mothers who are subjected to serious physical, emotional, and psychological complications. Fathers and other loved ones may also be at risk for post-abortion complications.

Abortion-on-demand is also corrupting the culture at-large by advancing the false idea that human beings can solve their problems or escape their pain through violence, killing, and abandonment.

Euthanasia Defined:

Euthanasia is the purposeful killing by act or omission of a dependent human being for his/her alleged benefit. Euthanasia has been advocated for certain classes of human beings, including the handicapped young, the mentally impaired, the terminally ill and the comatose. The inevitable result of this trend will be to escalate from killing for the alleged benefit of an individual to killing for the convenience of others.
Euthanasia violates the principle that each human being has intrinsic dignity and value, regardless of age, physical or mental condition, or state of dependency. Euthanasia seeks to improve the quality of life, not by mutually ennobling acts of care and assistance, but by exterminating those who fall below some arbitrary standard. Killing is never a proper expression of compassion.
We approve of the accepted medical practice of administering pain-relieving drugs in whatever dosage necessary to alleviate the suffering of the terminally ill, as long as there is no intent to bring about or hasten the patient's death. We care about human life and about people and families facing difficult medical decisions. We promote positive steps of advocacy to protect all human life, no matter what its situation on the continuum of life.
