Unborn have the right to live

We all make personal choices every day that do not physically harm another human being. We are also faced with choices every day that do affect others. Pedophiles, armed robbers, drunk drivers, murderers, and others make choices which physically harm other human beings. Should we allow people to make these choices, and should they be free to decide for themselves?

Another personal choice kills a human being -- an innocent child and many times harms his or her mother. With abortion, the objective is to destroy the life that is growing inside of the mother. This happens over 3,000 times per day in the U.S. Abortion is a human rights issue, the child's right to life takes precedence over the mother's right to have her baby killed.

No matter what the situation, the unborn children have as much right to live as we born people do.
