The Arizona Life Coalition fully recognizes that the topic of abortion is a divisive one. But it is equally clear that just because a matter is hotly debated does not mean that there are no objective answers. Obviously, though the question of slavery divided our nation for many years, slavery is wrong no matter how many people support or oppose it. And the reason slavery is objectively wrong is because it essentially dehumanizes other humans based on the color of their skin.
We feel the exact same way about the topic of abortion. The willful destruction of innocent human life cannot be morally or intellectually acceptable no matter legal protection, crafty arguments, compelling statistics or deep sentiment. Regardless of an individual human's size, race, gender or development, we are all equally human.
We hope that you will visit our Human Development link to discover how all humans develop equally. If it is arbitrary to discriminate against another human simply because of the color of their skin, then it is equally arbitrary to discriminate based on the level of their development. Surely, if we as a society can discriminate against other humans because of the degree of their development, then we can choose any criteria for discrimination that suits us: Social Status, Intelligence, etc. Sadly, history shows us that we are very adept at dehumanizing the weak, the sick and the voiceless.
Also, we earnestly hope that if you or anyone else you know is recovering from abortion and needs help and encouragement, that you visit our Arizona Service Organization link to see how many different groups are dedicated to the needs of mothers, fathers, grandparents and friends who have been affected by abortion.
