Letter: Protect sanctity of unborn children


With respect to articles about state laws that limit when a woman may obtain an abortion, I do not see any voice for the most vulnerable in the discussion: the unborn child in the womb.

Dear reader, when do you say human life begins? At conception, or when the fetus is viable, or at birth? What supports your answer? There is clear evidence of cellular life at conception. An embryonic heartbeat is detectable by six weeks. With advances in medicine a premature baby was able to live outside the womb at 21 weeks. Why does a child have personhood at birth, but not one day or even one hour before birth? Let us uphold the sanctity and dignity of life for the most vulnerable among us, the unborn child in the womb.
