A new easy to read, downloadable handbook (pdf) from Focus on the Family equips pro-lifers with insight on difficult questions such as, “Are preborn babies human beings?” “What is partial-birth abortion?” “Do I have the right to choose when I die?” “Should I support stem-cell research?”
One page in the book is dedicated to abortion statistics.
Carrie Gordon Earll, senior bioethics analyst for Focus on the Family Action, said the statistics reported in the handbook and in the media showing that abortion is down are great news, but they may not be completely accurate.
“These numbers may be deceiving, as several states did not file a report, including California, which is a leader in the number of abortions in the nation,” Earll said. “Without mandatory state reporting, we really have no way of knowing the true number of abortions committed each year in this country.”
One of the most important questions addressed in the handbook is, “What does it mean to be human?”
To be human is identifiable by species (homo sapiens) and genetic code. Life, biologically speaking, begins at fertilization. We all began with the same raw materials: an egg and a sperm. We are fully human when these gametes unite at fertilization, as nothing else is added to us— only nourishment and time to grow.
As we can see, Planned Parenthood doesn’t even want to try to define what a human is.
