Many "pro-choicers" will say that an amino acid is life, and yet, a baby growing in the womb is not life, when in reality, the amino acids are not life, and the baby is. Consider that many "pro-choicers" are also evolutionists. And Darwinists are frequently confused about many things. For example, textbook authors and museum curators will claim that the famous 1952 Miller/Urey experiment created life. In reality, all they did was to synthesize some amino acids. Once such instance in Colorado is at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science in their exhibit titled: Replicating Life in the Lab? Why does that title end with a question mark? It’s been sixty years. Don’t they know yet if they made life or not?
The baby, on the right, is alive. The amino acids, on the left, are not alive. And that question mark at Denver museum is insufficient to counterbalance their misleading title, since amino acids are the building blocks of biological life, but they are not life. They're acids.
"We Don't Know When Life Begins" Ten thousand times over, the Roe v. Wade opinion has been quoted approvingly by those who advocate the killing of unborn children: "We need not resolve the difficult question of when life begins." Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi, for example, both indicated that even "scientifically," it is not known when life begins. With such hard hearts, how can they possibly understand personhood when they pretend to be so confused regarding even biological life itself.
During the 2008 U.S. presidential race, then-Senator Barack Obama said during a candidate forum regarding when a "baby" gets "human rights," that "answering that question" even from "a scientific perspective... is above my pay grade." On Youtube you can see NBC's Tom Brokaw play that clip of Obama and then ask then-Speaker of the House:
BROKAW: Senator Obama saying the question of when life begins is above his pay grade, whether you’re looking at it scientifically or theologically. If he were to come to you and say, "Help me out here, Madame Speaker, when does life begin?" what would you tell him?
NANCY PELOSI: ...this is an issue that I have studied for a long time. ... We don’t know. ... I don’t think anybody can tell you when life begins, human life begins.
