Many pro-abortion public officials will say they believe that life begins at conception. But then they say they cannot legislate that belief.
The key issue here is not when life begins or whether beliefs should be legislated. The problem is that they think they can deprive some lives of protection, and pretend that the rest are safe.
Look at it this way. Suppose someone said, “I believe that life begins at birth, but I cannot legislate my beliefs on those who think otherwise.” Therefore, the newborn lose their legal protection. Why legislate my belief that adults should be protected?
Objective, scientific evidence shows that the unborn are as human as the born. To consider that evidence to be merely belief, and the protection of life merely a personal option, puts every human life in danger.
