Most pro-Life people take it as an article of faith that life begins at conception.
But we recently ran across an academic paper which put that question to the world’s scientific community. You may be surprised to learn that 96% of the biologists interviewed for that paper agreed that life begins at conception.
Dr. Steven Jacobs, completing his doctoral thesis at the University of Chicago, submitted his question about the beginning of human life to a huge sample of biologists working at over 1000 academic institutions around the world. 5,577 scientists responded to his survey, representing some 86 countries. The scientists participating in the study reflected the strong left-ward ideology we’ve come to expect from the academic world (89% identified as ‘politically liberal’). 85% of the scientists participating in the study reported that they support abortion “rights”.
Yet, 96% of these biologist were nevertheless compelled by the rules of science to acknowledge that human life begins at conception.
Those of us involved in the struggle to defend preborn children are not, of course, shocked by this scientific finding. Indeed, it is not simple faith alone which dictates such a view; logic itself demands an admission that each of our lives traces its beginning to that wondrous moment of fertilization.
What is shocking is the glaring disconnect between our scientific understanding and the pompous jurists who contort reason and hard evidence to uphold the right of a woman to terminate an innocent human life. They have long engaged in a willful ignorance of commonly known facts to obtain a political objective they find pleasing.
Lord willing, we are on the cusp of a new enlightenment and honesty from the federal judiciary regarding the holocaust they have unleashed upon American society. The cold fact is that abortion means the destruction of a human being.
