My understanding of the pro-life view amongst conservative Christians is that the fetus is human life, and therefore is worthy of the right to life as any human being.
But do we really believe this? I’ve heard the estimations for abortions per year are at about 70,000. The response of Christians is generally through seeking new legislation, the odd protest (though I don’t see them that often) and through counselling services for pregnant women and so forth. But would we react the same if we knew that 70,000 unwanted children between the age of 0 and 2 were being murdered each year through clincis sponsored by the state?
My assumption is that Christians would not react the same way as they do to abortion. I imagine we would be MUCH more horrified and seek to take matters into our own hands in order to save these children, even to the extent of using voilence.
Why do we not do a similar thing for a fetus? It is either because we see a clear distinction between the value of an unborn child and a human being, or we are not morally outraged enough at the slaughter of innocent human beings to follow through on our convictions.
Or have i missed something?
