The exact moment when life begins is a hotly debated topic. On one side you have pro-lifers, who believe life begins the moment a gent’s swimmer fertilizes an egg. Then, on the other side, you have leftists. They think sucking a little tyke’s brains out with a vacuum cleaner five minutes before he’s born is totes cool.
Well, HHS was kind enough to settle things for us. They published new guidelines declaring exactly when life begins:
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) just released their 2018-2022 plan, which unequivocally states that life begins at conception and deserves protection. In the introduction it says,
“HHS accomplishes its mission through programs and initiatives that cover a wide spectrum of activities, serving and protecting Americans at every stage of life, beginning at conception.”
The draft mentions conception five times total. The overwhelmingly pro-life stance in the draft is welcome news to many.
Welcome news, indeed!
Leftists accept a ball of goo on Mars as life, but not the ball of goo inside a lady’s tummy. The one that turns into a baby-person with eyes and ears. Who may one day develop into a gender fluid snowflake protesting the patriarchy. Another champion of reproductive rights. Accepting the truth of when life begins renders their entire pro-abortion argument murderous. Keeping the wheels turning on the abortion machine is much more important than being consistent. Or morally good.
Call us a bunch of softies, but we think
infanticide “women’s reproductive healthcare” is just bad practice. Most leftists, as far as we know, would frown upon a crazed doctor de-braining toddlers during nap time. Here, kids, have some milk, cookies and a scalpel right between the ears. That’s why we have anti-murder laws to protect people outside the womb. Alls pro-lifers suggest is extending that protection to the humans inside the womb. And for that, we’re called “extremists.”
Pretty simple, really:
