This info is so important in light of the anniversary of Roe v Wade and its companion decision Doe v Bolton this week, ESH is including the full comments of Prof Dianne Irving as well as the article by Judie Brown from ALL.
They discuss the faux protection offered by a pair of bills circulating in Congress right now. Neither bill does much for truly protecting the preborn and, in fact, leaves a wide berth for murder of preborns deemed life noth worth living because they may be conceived in rape, incest or asexually (e.g. IVF, ART and other methods).
The exceptions game is a one way spiral to more carnage, now 41 years removed from the SCOTUS power grab. Is this the same March For Life of Nellie Gray? What of those children? Are they not equally human? Biology and the Faith both confirm they are.
[Note: Brava to Judie Brown and to ALL! You just saved the lives of thousands if not millions of innocent living human beings! Many in prolife desperately need to see and understand why they are causing as many deaths. If you don’t used the accurate “language” then you can’t even think the objective truth, much less do anything to stop the killing spree. E.g., these days the genetic engineering of human sperm, oocytes and embryos in IVF and ART research laboratories and “infertility” clinics, as well as their production using “stem cells”, is accomplished by asexual human reproduction — not by “fertilization” (fusion of sperm and oocyte). If you think only “fertilization” or use only that term in your work, writings, protests, or legislation then you have left out all human beings asexually reproduced — including naturally occurring human monozygotic (identical) twins that are conceived within the woman’s fallopian tube. Thus all asexually reproduced human beings can be killed in destructive experimental research, and implanted into women without them knowing that the embryos are experimental and asexually reproduced — and thus usually aborted for specific “data” purposes, etc. Is prolife not supposed to protect all those living innocent human beings too?
Every time anyone in prolife uses scientifically inaccurate terms such as “pre-embryo”, “conception” (already legally defined in dozens of state laws as “implantation”!), “fertilization”, “in the womb”, etc., they are participating in formal and material cooperation in evil. It is so bad now that even when supposedly using the accurate terms those very terms are then in turn misdefined — such as in one of the “Life Principles” for the March For Life 2015, where the accurate and legitimate phrase “biological beginning” is falsely redefined as “fertilization” only as “when the Father’s sperm fertilizes the Mother’s ovum” [http://marchforlife.org/life-principles/]. Thus that “Life Principle” leaves out all asexually reproduced human beings. Another well-known example is the false phrase “in the womb”, since even sexual reproduction (fertilization) does NOT take place “in the womb”. Fertilization takes place in the woman’s fallopian tube in which the growing developing embryo travels for about 5-7 days before trying to implant in her womb — at which time the embryonic human being consists of hundreds of cells. Yet, many in prolife want to use abortifacients which kill (abort) the early embryo still in the woman’s fallopian tube and so look the other way. And needless to say, as fully described and documented in a recent article I passed along on “bioengineered wombs” [http://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2015/01/the-high-tech-future-of-the-uterus/383232/] even the false phrase “in the womb” is totally irrelevant and outdated today! Don’t such uninformed or downright duplicitous prolifers even hear all those proabortioners, IVF/ART facilitators and genetic engineering researchers laughing at them?
Hopefully some of the following articles could be useful in helping people sort out the “language game” that has plagued prolife for at least the last 40 years. The science used in them is not my subjective opinion but rather direct quotations from extensive references using the accurate professional objective scientific sources.

A HUMAN BEING DIES EVERY TIME!
by Judie Brown
Leading up to the March for Life—and perhaps in an effort to grab a headline or two with a new or innovative idea—several pro-life legislative proposals are on the horizon. But at a time when the pro-life movement is focused on commemorating the deaths of millions of babies killed by abortion, these proposals are written in such a way that they would do nothing to halt the madness.
AUDIO: “A Human Being Dies Every Time”
The awkwardly titled Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act [http://www.nationalrighttolifenews.org/news/2015/01/house-to-vote-on-pain-capable-unborn-child-protection-act-january-22/#.VL6VbjJi5Rd] deals with those babies who are capable of feeling pain during an abortion and therefore require special attention. But, according to the language of the proposal, only those pain-capable babies NOT created [http://www.savethe1.com/?page_id=1470] by acts of rape or incest or perceived to be a direct threat to the life of the mother would be protected.
The same problem exists in the Title X Abortion Provider Prohibition Act [http://www.opencongress.org/bill/hr217-112/show]. The act would not prohibit Title X money (your tax dollars) from going to organizations that commit or advocate for abortions IF the babies they are killing are conceived due to an act of rape or incest or because of a perceived threat to the life of the mother.
Let me repeat that. This proposal does NOT prohibit all Title X taxpayer funds from going to organizations or individuals that commit abortions.
Thus, sadly, neither of these even makes a dent in ending every abortion of every innocent baby from the moment of creation—his biological beginning. This is so because we don’t even know how to talk about when a preborn child’s life actually begins. It seems to me that my pro-life friends are either suffering from a political blind spot or simply do not want the fullness of truth to be part of their agenda.
For example, the March for Life publishes a set of principles [http://marchforlife.org/life-principles/] that, by including the phrase “when the father’s sperm fertilizes the mother’s ovum,” does not address the protection of all preborn babies. By that definition, it would overlook babies who are created asexually [ http://www.all.org/article/index/id/MTM2OTc//].
Only God knows how many babies would go unprotected if these principles prevailed.
Like the legislative proposals we discuss, these principles are flawed.
I ask you, if we pro-lifers are truly committed to defending and protecting every single preborn baby’s life, then don’t we have to be certain that our language reflects the truth? And if that is so, then why in the world aren’t we talking like we know what it means to defend every innocent person’s life from his biological beginning until his death?
Are we permitting politicians to tell us what is practical? I don’t know! But I can say, American Life League—thanks to the patient teaching of experts like Dr. Dianne Irving [http://lifeissues.net/writer.php?ID=irv] — has been at the forefront of teaching the right science for many years. And we fail to understand why such disconnect occurs repeatedly in the larger pro-life community.
After 42 years, why don’t we all get it? Are we dull, or do we intend to deconstruct the truth and leave the bodies of babies in the wake of our flawed efforts?
As for me and all of us at American Life League, we stand by what our vice president, Jim Sedlak, said [http://www.all.org/prolifethisweek/review] publicly last week: “You’ve gone about this all wrong for 40 years. You should have been fighting for the life of every single human being since the beginning; if you had, you wouldn’t need exceptions today. You’d be talking about every human being created by God instead of stating which ones of God’s creations need to be sacrificed for the greater good.”
I sincerely hope we have not forgotten—and that we will never forget—that a human being dies every time an abortion is performed.
