My rights as an individual are protected, but should they not have been when I was in my mother's womb? The person I am today relies on my rights be protected then and now. Taking a fetus' life is no different than a new born child. Neither can speak, nor will the have a memory of what is going on, but one day they will be able to do all that and more. One day they could be the most influential people of our society. A fetus in the womb today could change the world tomorrow. Life is precious not only in God's eyes, but also for our society's benefit.
