I find the entire argument over killing an unborn child atrocious. Murder is murder. At the point of conception life begins and at least as soon as the heart beats this cannot be argued.
The text below from the Roe v Wade Supreme Court Decision used by activists to talk about a woman’s reproductive rights. Read it carefully all emphasis mine.
State criminal abortion laws, like those involved here, that except from criminality only a life-saving procedure on the mother’s behalf without regard to the stage of her pregnancy and other interests involved violate the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment, which protects against state action the right to privacy, including a woman’s qualified right to terminate her pregnancy. Though the State cannot override that right, it has legitimate interests in protecting both the pregnant woman’s health and the potentiality of human life, each of which interests grows and reaches a “compelling” point at various stages of the woman’s approach to term.

Where in this does it say its okay to kill a human life with a beating heart? As stated at The Endowment For Human Development ‘Only 3 weeks and 1 day after fertilization – the heart begins to beat.’ It would seem a beating heart should signify life. At this point who has the right to life? Who has the right to privacy? Couldn’t we assume a baby would want to live? (Click this link to see an image of a beating embryo heart)
Speaking of the baby’s privacy, wouldn’t a vacuum hose coming in to suck out a baby’s brains pretty much invade it’s privacy?
This may sound uncaring, however, the right to choose does belong to all women, before pregnancy. A woman can choose to say no at any point before or during sex and if the man continues it is rape.
If the women worries about getting pregnant, say no. Or if she must indulge in sex they have pills for avoiding pregnancy which cost about $10 in most places. Assuming it is all about her, the responsibility to not get pregnant is too. However, she usually has an advantage; men wanting sex are pretty easy to manipulate so tell him, no condom, no sex.
Now on the worst case scenario, she gets pregnant and has her baby murdered. Obviously she didn’t want the baby so why complain about burying the child? People bury their pets, why not the baby they killed? Adoption would have been much less gruesome.
New rules put forward by the Texas Department of State Health Services will require fetal remains to be buried or cremated by abortion clinics or hospitals. The rules, which go into effect on December 19, cover women who had abortions and those who suffered miscarriages.
