Peter Konetchy on Abortion

 

 


Human life begins at conception

Question topic: Human life begins at conception and deserves legal protection at every stage until natural death.

Konetchy: Strongly Agree.

Question topic: Should abortion be allowed under extenuating circumstances? If so, what circumstances?

Konetchy: The only possible reason for abortion would be to save the life of the mother, and this decision must be made by the parents and God, with counsel from a trusted doctor.

No moral right to kill unborn babies in the womb

You never have the moral right or authority to kill an individual you consider inconvenient to your lifestyle. Let me explain my view on abortion this way. Some senior citizens require extended care. Assume 50% of the US population, about the same percent which support abortion, believes that caregivers should be able to decide if the seniors under their care should be involuntarily killed if they become a burden or inconvenience. Should there be a law allowing these caregivers the "Choice" of whether or not to terminate another's life?

OF COURSE NOT! Even if 99.9% believed it proper, killing others for your own convenience is wrong. You never have the moral right or authority to kill an individual you consider inconvenient to your lifestyle. The same reasoning applies to unborn babies in the womb. The most innocent among us should be nurtured and protected, rather than slaughtered on demand. It's not the baby's "choice" to be aborted. Quite the contrary, Life strives to survive.
