Faced with stomach-turning, videotaped evidence exposing the abortion industry's flagship Planned Parenthood harvesting for sale the body parts of developing babies, heart-hardened abortion apologists and even some embryonic stem cell research advocates have attempted to obscure the fact that these developing babies are, in fact, human.
In scientific terms, every human being begins as an embryo, who develops into a fetus, who develops into a baby.
While these terms are sometimes used (for financial and ideological purposes) to obscure the humanity of the developing baby, the scientific observation of of a human being from fertilization through birth reveals a seamless human development. At no stage can this human being ever veer off and develop into some other type of being. The complete DNA of every human being is present and complete at fertilization--the physical beginning of human life, when sperm and egg unite.
While such facts seem clear and even obvious to anyone with a conscience, those who have seared their consciences apparently remain stubbornly oblivious to this truth. They would deceive us in order to continue their killing and exploitation of developing babies.
The recent Hobby Lobby Supreme Court case upheld the right of a faith-based business to decline to obey the Obama administration's mandate that employers must subsidize the provision of embryo-killing drugs such as Ella and Plan B. Americans United for Life attorneys filed an amicus brief in that case on behalf of the Christian Medical Association and other pro-life organizations. The brief outlined the following scientific facts on human development--facts that inform the current debate over harvesting baby body parts and over legislation to ban late-term abortions.
