If you are concerned about the stories emerging from Planned Parenthood in America then please consider signing the pro-life declaration

What does it mean to be ‘pro-life’?

The term has been tossed back and forth like a political football for so many decades that it's lost much of its meaning. Pro-life supporters are painted as ‘radical’ by the media and ‘anti-women’ by pundits.

But the recent exposure of Planned Parenthood for the large-scale flogging of human body parts for profit (see also hereherehere and here) – along with a long catalogue of past misdemeanours - is causing more and more people to realise that they are, in fact, pro-life.

The argument goes like this. If the baby in the womb is not a human being with rights then what seriously is the problem with treating it as a commodity to be cannibalised for parts which can be bought and sold?

On the other hand, if you are concerned then why are you not equally concerned about the destruction of any human life before birth at any stage?

Let’s be consistent. Planned Parenthood are being ruthlessly consistent.

It’s time to unite around the foundational truths that define what it means to be ‘pro-life’.

That's why leaders of the pro-life movement have written The Pro-Life Declaration and over one hundred thousand people have signed it.

In four simple statements, the Declaration articulates the basics of the pro-life position void of any exemptions or excuses.

1.   I believe every life has dignity and limitless potential.

Despite age, physical ability, or vulnerability, everyone should be given the opportunity to live and make their mark in the world.

2.   I believe the “right to life” is the most fundamental right protected by America’s founding documents.

America’s forefathers recognized the importance of the “right to life,” citing it as the first of all rights given in the Declaration of Independence.

3.   I believe life should be protected and defended from the moment of conception until natural death.

Abortion must be prevented at every stage of development. Every human has the right to a full life.

4.   I believe grace, compassion and understanding are essential to protecting life.

We must be committed to working across racial, ethnic, religious and economic divides to restore the sanctity of human life in communities across the world.
