I cannot stress this clearly enough: there is no scientific debate about when a new, wholly distinct human life comes into existence. There is only a political debate about if and when human beings deserve basic human rights.
A Down syndrome diagnosis should never represent a death warrant. Too many people are aborted because they possess genetic differences. We have hundreds of laws protecting people with genetic anomalies once they are born, and we must extend that same kindness and protection to all people regardless of age, location, or genes.
Roe’s pronouncement in 1973 of a “fundamental right to abortion” isn’t the “law of the land” today, and it hasn’t been for over forty years.
