Just Imagine Your Own Personal Documentary.

This is just an analogy. Just imagine you passed out of this life and you woke up in a gigantic theater. In front of you is a huge screen. Then to your right, all of a sudden, these doors open an angel flies in and comes up to you and says welcome to the Theatre of Judgment. Relax. Just watch the screen. There on the screen you see your life. It’s everything you ever did here on earth. It’s everything you ever said here on earth. It’s everything you ever thought. These are what are called the sins of commission. However, then you proceeded to watch the sins of omission. These are all the things we should have done but we didn't do.  At the end of the film, as you're recovering, the angel comes back and says, “Relax. There is going to be a second showing. Then all the people who were featured in the film of your life are all waiting outside. We're going to let them in and come and view your life a second time.”  How would you feel if your life were judged on that basis? That

Pro-Life with No Bible Verse?



Let’s clear up a fundamental confusion going on about the pro-life case against abortion. Christianity does inform us that image bearers of God come into exists inside the womb but so does science. However, the pro-life argument stands without an appeal to the Bible.

 It appeals to science and philosophy.  Let’s see how. I am pro-life because the science of embryology teaches that from the earliest stages of development the unborn are distinct living whole human beings. You didn't come from an embryo; you once were an embryo. There's no ethical difference between the embryo you once were and the adult you are today that would justify killing you back then.  

There are only four differences between the embryo you once were and the adult you are today.

1. size

2. level of development

3. environment

4. degree of dependency

It is true that unborn humans are smaller than born humans but since when does physical size give you value. Quoting from Dr. Suess “Horton Hears a Who” – “a person is a person no matter how small.” In other words, human value transcends physical appearance.

It is true that unborn humans are less developed than you. So what? There are plenty of born humans that are less developed than you are we more valuable? Of course not.

What about environment? Where you are has no bearing on your intrinsic worth.  How does a journey of eight inches down the birth canal change your essential value? It doesn't.

It is true that unborn humans are completely dependent on another for their survival. However, so are newborns and the severely handicapped and the comatose and so on. Are they still valuable? Yes

All four of these criteria attempt to disqualify humans as valuable members of the human community so they can be killed but since it's wrong to intentionally kill an innocent human being and abortion kills an innocent human being abortion is therefore wrong

That's why I’m pro-life. And look no bible verse or religion just science and careful thinking.
