Our nation has a moral obligation to protect the life of its citizens, including the lives of the un-born in our country. After 20 weeks we are dealing with an early developed person. Although it’s early it is still a life, just as many people are acknowledging the presence and value of life within animals and even plants, we too need to see that value of life in a fetus. Morally, this obligation can be rooted in religious ethic, but even more, a humanitarian ethic to speak for those who cannot speak on their own. That for sure applies to a 20 week old person. To protect a child in this way is to honor to value of human life within all and to protect someone who simply cannot speak for themselves. Thank you for taking time to reading this.
