Given this, I challenge you readers out there to respond: Why are you Pro-Life?
It wouldn't be fair to pose this challenge without first offering my own perspective...
I'm Pro-Life for a myriad of reasons. Throughout history, the taking of innocent life is recognized, by both religious and secular alike, as immoral. As a Catholic I feel particularly called to defend the lives of those that cannot defend themselves. As an American I feel it is important to recognize those inherent rights so eloquently described by Thomas Jefferson in the Delcaration of Independence:
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.How can someone be equal, have Liberty, or pursue Happiness without first having Life?
A paragraph can hardly contain the multitude of reasons to be Pro-Life. If you are in need of more reasons or can't quite figure out how to tackle a tough question check out: www.whyprolife.com.
