What the pro-life struggle boils down to

From Mark Crutcher:

So the problem is not that women have abortions, but that children die. And that only occurs because our nation took away their right to life. So maybe we need to talk a little less about stopping abortion and a little more about returning legal protection to the unborn. Perhaps then, all these people claiming to be pro-life would know what being pro-life actually means.

That is my life's work. And that is why I call myself a fetal rights activist (as well as a pro-lifer).

The pro-life movement is a human rights movement-- one that especially focuses on fetal rights. I think restricting abortion is fine. It's not enough. We need to promote the equality of the unborn child.

Some people say that banning abortion cannot happen soon, so why bother. But, if nobody promotes the equality of the unborn child, it will become a self-fulfilling prophecy. I don't want people to say "abortion is bad". I want them to say: the unborn child is like myself.

When that cultural change happens, that's when we will have fetal rights legislation. We can only make that happen if we all pitch in.
