Are the unborn human?

Jimmy Akin, in his usual cogent and accessible style, addresses the issue at the core of the pro-life movement, whether unborn human beings are human beings.

If you read this blog, or know me in real life, you know this is a biggie for me. Too often in politics and in casual conversation people make the unsubstantiated claim that abortion is a "personal decision" or a "religious issue." It is neither.

Even our president said "that's above my pay grade." It is not, especially if you want to claim you are a constitutional lawyer and a "man of science."

Looked at objectively, scientifically, abortion is the killing of an innocent human being, in violation of our Constitution and the principles of civil society. But Jimmy is a far better speaker (and writer) than I.
