Abortion Life or Death ÄÄÄ Who Chooses?

In Roman times, abortion and the destruction of unwanted children was permissible, but as out civilization has aged, it
seems that such acts were no longer acceptable by rational human beings, so that in 1948, Canada along with most
other nations in the world signed a declaration of the United Nations promising every human being the right to life. The
World Medical Association meeting in Geneve at the same time, stated that the utmost respect for human life was to be
from the moment of conception. This declaration was re-affirmed when the World Medical Association met in Oslo in
1970. Should we go backwards in our concern for the life of an individual human being? The unborn human is still a
human life and not all the wishful thinking of those advocating repeal of abortion laws, can alter this. Those of us who
would seek to protect the human who is still to small to cry aloud for it\'s own protection, have been accused of having a
19th Century approach to life in the last third of the 20th Century. But who in reality is using arguments of a bygone
Century? It is an incontrovertible fact of biological science - Make no Mistake - that from the moment of conception, a
new human life has been created. Only those who allow their emotional passion to overide their knowledge, can deny it:
only those who are irrational or ignorant of science, doubt that when a human sperm fertilizes a human ovum a new
human being is created. A new human being who carries genes in its cells that make that human being uniquely different
from any and other human being and yet, undeniably a member, as we all are, of the great human family. All the fetus
needs to grow into a babe, a child, an old man, is time, nutrition and a suitable environment. It is determined at that very
moment of conception whether the baby will be a boy or a girl; which of his parents he will look like; what blood type
he will have. His whole heritage is forever fixed. Look at a human being 8 weeks after conception and you, yes every
person here who can tell the difference between a man and a women, will be able to look at the fetus and tell me
whether it is a baby boy or a girl. No, a fetus is not just another part of a women\'s body like an appendix or
appendage. These appendages, these perfectly formed tiny feel belong to a 10 week developed baby, not to his or her
mother. The fetus is distinct and different and has it\'s own heart beat. Do you know that the fetus\' heart started beating
just 18 days after a new life was created, beating before the mother even knew she was pregnant? By 3 months of
pregnancy the developing baby is just small enough to be help in the palm of a man\'s hand but look closely at this 3
month old fetus. All his organs are formed and all his systems working. He swims, he grasps a pointer, he moves freely,
he excretes urine. If you inject a sweet solution into the water around him, he will swallaw because he likes the taste.
Inject a bitter solution and he will quit swallowing because he does not like the taste. By 16 weeks it is obvious to all,
except those who have eyes but deliberately do not see, that this is a young human being. Who chooses life or death for
this little one because abortion is the taking of a human life? This fact is undeniable; however much of the members of
the Women\'s Liberation Movement, the new Feminists, Dr. Henry Morgentaler or the Canadian Medical Association
President feel about it, does not alter the fact of the matter. An incontrovertible fact that cannot change as feelings
change. If abortion is undeniably the taking of human life and yet sincere misguided people feel that it should be just a
personal matter between a women and the doctor, there seems to be 2 choices open to them. (1) That they would
believe that
