All this week National Right to Life President and Pro-Life Perspective Host Carol Tobias will be providing you with invaluable tips for how to make the case for life and defend that case against pro-abortion arguments. You can listen at www.prolifeperspective.com not only to hear today’s broadcast but, as the week goes by, any programs you may have missed.
Mrs. Tobias outlines the week’s programs:
“All arguments for abortion break down into five different categories. Every day this week, we’ll take a look at one of these five basic pro-abortion arguments and breakdown the pro-life response. If you’ve missed any episode, of if you want to download them to share with others, you can find the entire week online at prolifeperspective.com.”
Today she tackles an oldie but a badie– that the unborn child is not a human being, from the moment of fertilization but rather “ a “blob of tissue” or “the products of conception.” Mrs. Tobias makes two keen points.
We have the biology on our side, hands down. That is why memorizing just a few keep markers is so helpful.
“First, remember that the fetal heart begins beating at 18 to 21 days after fertilization; that brain waves can be detected at around six weeks; and that by eight weeks, all of the body’s systems are present including little fingers and toes.”
And, as explained in “a baby’s first months,“ every organ system or body systems is in place at 10-11 weeks.
Second, while there are lots more to listen to at www.prolifeperspective.com, the objective of knowing these developmental signposts is (as Mrs. Tobias remarks) to “restore the humanity of the unborn child. Most pro-abortion arguments are made in an attempt to take away the humanity of the unborn child and by doing so they hope to reduce her significance.”
Put another way, if you stick with the “fetal facts,” you can’t lose.
