Good News Well Needed


I have linked an article  which talks about the actions of one American citizen to bring clarity to the abortion conversation.  One of the realities of a post-abortion culture is that it has a difficult time defining what is human and what is not.  We have trouble saying when a baby is a baby (as is indicated in the responses by Tony and others in the blog titled “Logical, But Destructive”).  This article  tells of the efforts of one young person to force clarity on the issue of personhood.  When does a conceptus/fetus/embryo/baby become a human being, with all the rights of personhood, including the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness?  This was, after all, the question that Obama could not answer at Saddleback.

  1. If you want a clear and rational answer to the question of when personhood begins — as opposed to the dangerous faith-based fiction found in Colorado’s Amendment 48 — I recommend an issue paper recently published by the Coalition for Secular Government: “Amendment 48 Is Anti-Life: Why It Matters That a Fertilized Egg Is Not a Person” by Ari Armstrong and myself. It’s available at:

    We discuss some of the serious implications of this proposed amendment, including its effects on the legality of abortion, birth control, and in vitro fertilization. And we offer a strong defense of abortion rights based on the biological facts of pregnancy.

  2. Seems like the French tried the secular government option…

  3. Russia tried it, too. So did China. They all proved one thing: “their feet are swift to shed blood; ruin and misery are in their path.” About the only thing more violent than an Islamic government is a godless government. For my part, I am glad to live in a country that believes in a creator God who has endowed each individual with the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. I’m just advocating that all human entitites be given the right to life.
