My name is Acyutananda (“c” pronounced as in “ciao”). All posts are by me unless otherwise mentioned, and express my personal views. The purpose of this blog will be to raise consciousness about the unborn, and awaken our consciences about the rights of the unborn.
The August 2013 post “Personhood and Citizenship” gives a basic explanation of why there should be no termination without representation.
Facebook: No Termination without Representation
More on why there should be no termination without representation:
The unborn are members of our human family, and normally it is wrong to kill our family members and right that they should be protected by the law. Abortion is a complex issue, so it may under certain circumstances be justifiable to kill (terminate) them – but not without representation. That is, since they cannot speak for themselves, they should be represented by those who are willing to stand up for their lives, and the final decision should be made by society, not by one person alone.
That does not mean, however, that abortion, even in violation of the decision of society, is exactly the same as murder. Please see “Why It’s Not Murder.”
