Science proves that life begins at conception

Dear Editor,

We live in a world that declares to believe in science, and yet when science clearly proves that life begins at conception, we pointedly ignore it because it’s easier to agree with the red herring of “viability” or “circumstances” than to stand for truth. Science has shown that from the moment of sperm-egg fusion, otherwise known as fertilization, a new and unique human life begins. Sperm and egg by themselves, contain only half the genetic material needed to form a human being. When these cells fuse, however, a new individual—who is genetically distinct from both parents—comes into existence. The continued growth throughout the woman’s pregnancy is simply developmental growth. This growth continues after the child is born. Developmental stages do not determine a person’s humanity and thus their right to life. Brain science has recently discovered that our brains continue to develop until we are 25. Would you give someone the “right” to kill a 22-year-old, simply because they are not “developed enough”? Of course not. A child’s unique and singular DNA determines their humanity, from the point of conception. Thus, under the Fourteenth Amendment of the Constitution, they possess an undeniable right to life. As citizens of the United States, we are governed by the authority of the Constitution. The Declaration of Independence states “that all men are created equal, and that they are endowed by their Creator with certain Unalienable Rights, that among them are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.” Every child has a right to life from the point of conception, just as much as you and I—no matter what circumstances may or may not surround their conception, what their suspected “quality of life” will be, or what any Doctor (who swore to do no harm) recommends, because of suspected issues or disabilities. The greatest act of depravity within a culture is when death is determined and encouraged for a person simply because of any challenge they may face, disability, or difference they might possess. There is no “mercy” in abortion, and we have no right to play God and decide that a child’s life will be too hard, and thus deny them a chance to live. We as a nation fail to realize that we walk without fear in the very footsteps of Hitler, only, we’ve begun their extermination in the safest place — the womb.
