Hillary’s “unborn person”

Hillary Clinton said, “The unborn person has no constitutional rights.” That statement threatens the rights of us all. If we can deny the rights of “the unborn person” then what is going to stop us from denying rights to some other type of person who is out of the womb (like America has done in the past)? Liberty and justice needs to be for all persons, not just the born ones!

President Obama recently referred to “unborn persons” as “babies.” He said: “Zika is a threat to Americans, especially babies,” (the “babies” primarily threatened by Zika are the unborn ones). Following Obama’s and Hillary’s logic, abortion takes the life of babies (unborn persons). Isn’t it time that all babies received prenatal care?

To say “All lives matter,”
Is to override
Prenatal infanticide,
All forms of homicide,
And besides;
The heart of the matter
Is that every human heartbeat matters.

How can it be right to rip an unborn person (baby) from the womb and put her/him in the tomb or the trash can?

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time.

    It’s an interesting way to characterize the legal status of abortion. In fact, what the Supreme Court declared was that legally in the U.S. a human being did not become a “person” under the Constitution until birth. The way Clinton phrased her statement acknowledges that an unborn human is a person, albeit one without Constitutional rights. Was Clinton deliberately stating this in a different manner than did the Court, or was that difference inadvertent? Was she intending to make a distinction between a person in the broader sense, and a person in the narrow legal sense of one protected by the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution?

    Generally, those calling themselves “pro-choice” deny that an unborn human is a person. This is the way they generally rationalize not acknowledging that the unborn are entitled to rights, even the right to life. But there has recently been some debate within the “pro-choice” community about whether to openly acknowledge that abortion kills persons, partly based on the undeniable scientific fact that the unborn are human beings and in response to the pro-life community comparing the “pro-choice” movement’s denial of scientific fact to those denying the human impact on climate in the face of overwhelming scientific evidence. Secular Pro-Life uses the slogan, “the embryology textbook tells me so” to note that the argument for respecting the life of the unborn does not require a religious basis but is rooted in scientific fact and does not require adherence to any particular faith understanding.
