With the anniversary of Roe v. Wade coming up, here’s a primer on making the case for life. A silly pro-abortion argument still repeated is: “Human life doesn’t begin until long after conception.”
So how do we respond? With basic biology. Ask your pro-choice friend when exactly he or she began being alive. If the answer is anything other than “at the moment of conception,” then ask how a non-living embryo magically grew into a living child.
Next ask, “Are you human?” Then, “when did you become human?” If they insist there was a time when they weren’t human, ask, well, what species they were.
Unless your friend is willing to say that he or she was non-living or another species, they have to admit, like embryologists do, that human life begins at conception. While there’s more to the pro-life case than this, it does debunk one of the silliest objections out there.
