First degree murder occurs when one human being takes the life of another human being, deliberately and with planning. The "pro-choice" movement says that abortion is not murder because the 'fetus' is not a human being. Is an unborn child a human being, or is it a "lump of cells"?
What is a human being? Is a fetus a human being? A human being is a unique individual, with 46 chromosomes, and it's own individual DNA pattern. The human egg and sperm each have 23 chromosomes. When the sperm fertilizes the egg, these chromosomes join and create a unique individual. At this point all characteristics (sex, hair color, eye color, etc.) of this human being have been determined. The outward form of a human being may not be recognizable by the naked eye, but, if someone were to map the DNA at this point, they would find a unique human DNA pattern. Does this not fit the definition of human life? Even doctors agree that human life exists at this stage.
If that isn't convincing enough for the average person, lets look at some of the stages of development. The heart beats at 18 days, and is pumping blood by 21 days. The eyes, ears, and respiratory system all start to develop at 4 weeks. At 6 to 8 weeks the baby starts to move inside the womb. Brainwaves can be measured at about 5 weeks. At 8 weeks all body systems are present, you can hear a heartbeat, and the baby is recognizable as a human being to the naked eye.
"The baby was extremely alive and swam about the sac approximately one time per second with a natural swimmers stroke. This tiny human did not look at all like the photos and drawings of ‘embryos’ which I have seen, nor did it look like the few embryos I have been able to observe since then, obviously because this one was alive. "When the sac was opened, the tiny human immediately lost its life and took on the appearance of what is accepted as the appearance of an embryo at this stage (blunt extremities, etc.)." P.E. Rockwell, M.D., Director of Anesthesiology, Leonard Hospital, Troy, New York, U.S. Supreme Court., Markle vs. Abele, 72-56, 72-730, p. 11, 1972
Even Planned Parenthood officials will admit, when pushed, that the unborn child is a baby.
If all of this still isn’t convincing enough, consider this; surgery performed on unborn babies is being done more and more all of the time, and people have been prosecuted for killing unborn children by harming the pregnant woman. Why is killing an unborn child murder or manslaughter when the woman wants the child, but ‘interrupting the pregnancy’ when she doesn’t?
Stop killing (abortion) will you? Below picture shown 4 months baby girl being aborted.
