ABORTION making the case


Слайд 1

THE PRO-LIFE ARGUMENT elective abortion unjustly takes the life of an innocent human being.


Слайд 2

PREMISE #1 intentionally killing an innocent human being is a moral wrong.


Слайд 3

PREMISE #2 elective abortion is the intentional killing of an innocent human being.


Слайд 4

CONCLUSION therefore, elective abortion is a moral wrong.


Слайд 5

if the pre-born child is an innocent human being, then elective abortion is always a moral wrong. SUMMARY


Слайд 6

THE BIG QUESTION is the pre-born human?


Слайд 7

If the unborn is not human, no justification for elective abortion is necessary. But if the unborn is human, no justification for elective abortion is adequate. GREG KOUKL


Слайд 8

ELEC TIVE ABORTION I S A MORAL WRONG we can make the case through: science history human rights


Слайд 9

MAKING THE CASE science


Слайд 10

SCIENCE SAYS the pre-born is human


Слайд 11

the pre-born has all the characteristics of a human being


Слайд 12

FOUR CHARACTERISTICS of the pre-born child


Слайд 13

COMPLETE the pre-born child is complete: all the information it needs is there and it simply needs time to grow.


Слайд 14

COMPLETE UNIQUE the pre-born child is unique: it is not a part of its mother, but is genetically distinct from her.


Слайд 15

COMPLETE UNIQUE LIVING the pre-born child is living: it is growing, developing, undergoing metabolism, and responding to stimuli.


Слайд 16

COMPLETE UNIQUE LIVING HUMAN the pre-born child is human: living things always produce after their own kind, so humans beget complete, unique human beings.


Слайд 17

SO HOW IS THE PRE-BORN different?


Слайд 18

S.L.E.D. S.L.E.D. was created by Stephen Schwarz


Слайд 19

SIZE the pre-born is smaller than born humans (but size doesn’t determine our humanity).


Слайд 20

SIZE LEVEL OF DEVELOPMENT the pre-born is less developed than the born human (but our level of development doesn’t determine our humanity).


Слайд 21

SIZE LEVEL OF DEVELOPMENT ENVIRONMENT the pre-born is in a different place than the born human (but where we are doesn’t determine what we are).


Слайд 22

SIZE LEVEL OF DEVELOPMENT ENVIRONMENT DEGREE OF DEPENDENCY the pre-born is more dependent on its mother than the born human (but our degree of dependency doesn’t determine our humanity).


Слайд 23

humanity is not dependent on: size level of development environment degree of dependency.


Слайд 24

therefore, the pre-born is a complete and unique HUM AN BE ING .


Слайд 25

here’s a helpful tactic: trot out the toddler Note: “Trot out the Toddler” was created by Scott Klusendorf


Слайд 26

much of what is true of the pre-born is also true of the toddler.


Слайд 27

toddlers differ from adults in size, level of development, environment, and degree of dependency.


Слайд 28

can we kill a toddler we do not want? can we kill a toddler with developmental abnormalities?


Слайд 29

if it isn’t justified for the toddler, it isn’t justified for the pre-born child.


Слайд 30

THE C ONCLUSION FROM SCIENCE: the pre-born is human


Слайд 31

MAKING THE CASE history


Слайд 32

HISTORY SAYS we must not separate humanity from personhood


Слайд 33

abortion says some humans are not persons.


Слайд 34

history proves that we only ever separate personhood from humanity for nefarious purposes.


Слайд 35

1858 Virginia Supreme Court “in the eyes of the law… the slave is not a person.”


Слайд 36

1881 American Law Review “an Indian is not a person within the meaning of the constitution.”


Слайд 37

1928 Canada Supreme Court “the meaning of ‘qualified persons’ does not include women.”


Слайд 38

1936 Germany Supreme Court “the Reichgericht itself refused to recognize Jews… as ‘persons’ in the legal sense.”


Слайд 39

1997 Canada Supreme Court “The law of Canada does not recognize the unborn child as a legal person possessing rights.”


Слайд 40

we never separate humanity from personhood for good reasons.


Слайд 41

a living human being is a person, no matter what the law says.


Слайд 42

the slave is a person the Indian is a person the woman is a person the Jew is a person.


Слайд 43

the pre-born child is a person no matter what the law says no matter what society says no matter what politics says.


Слайд 44

THE C ONCLUSION FROM HISTORY we must not separate humanity from personhood


Слайд 45

MAKING THE CASE human rights


Слайд 46

HUM AN RIGHTS SAYS the pre-born has the right to life


Слайд 47

if you believe in universal human rights, you must believe that human rights belong to all humans.


Слайд 48

United Nations Declaration of Universal Human Rights “everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person.” ! “everyone has the right to recognition everywhere as a person before the law.”


Слайд 49

International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights “every human being has the inherent right to life. This right shall be protected by law. No one shall be arbitrarily deprived of his life.”


Слайд 50

Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms “everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of the person and the right not to be deprived thereof…”


Слайд 51

if human life begins at fertilization, human rights must begin at fertilization.


Слайд 52

but, from fertilization, the pre-born child is denied the most basic human right: the right to live.


Слайд 53

This is a gross violation of human rights.


Слайд 54

THE CONCLUSION FROM HU MAN RIG HTS the pre-born has the right to life


Слайд 55

THE CONCLUSION FROM science & history & human rights because the pre-born child is a human being, elective abortion is always a moral wrong


Слайд 56

Silence in the face of evil is itself evil. God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act. DIETRICH BONHOEFFER
