The real problem is ripping their bodies apart in what should be a safe place — their mothers’ wombs. Morgentaler’s award is simply a symptom of a more deeply rooted crisis. …
Across a period of four decades, more than 2.8 million human beings have been killed because of an assumption — that they were not human.
Case in point: Morgentaler claims abortion is safer, but to be accurate he must assume that the unborn aren’t human (because killing them certainly isn’t safe for them!). Morgentaler also claims abortion has decreased the crime rate — which may carry some weight if one doesn’t consider killing defenceless human beings a crime.
And so, because of one major assumption, abortion becomes legal and an abortionist gets an award. And as it turns out, the assumption is wrong.
