♪ Strasburg: “My body, my choice.”
This is an argument that I constantly hear in the “pro-choice” debate.
These women believe that it is their body and that not even the
government should be able to tell them what to do with their body,
especially when it comes to carrying a child nine months through pregnancy.
The truth of the matter is that from the moment of conception,
the human being is a distinct person that deserves a right to life.
At the moment of conception, all 46 of their chromosomes are already
in place. That means it is already determined what color hair they’ll have,
what color eyes they’ll have, what height they’ll be, and so many
other factors. Another interesting question to ask this lady as this
baby develops inside of her and she says, “My body, my choice,” is,
“Do you have four arms, two hearts, two sets of lungs, and four feet?”
The obvious answer is, “No.” There are two bodies: her body
and the body of the child. ♪
