Editor’s note. This appeared in the Indianapolis Star.
[Indianapolis] Mayor Joe Hogsett has been running TV ads that insinuate that being pro-life is a bad thing and therefore, the public should not vote for someone who is pro-life (“No Thanks” | Hogsett for Indianapolis – YouTube).
The pro-abortion position centers around a “right to privacy” and self-autonomy. But this is not a valid argument for abortion unless this right is denied to babies in the womb, and this right cannot be denied to babies without declaring them to not be members of the human race (i.e., persons).
