|PROTECTION TO START FROM CONCEPTION|
Because of the attention given to stem cell research, I want to summarize a basis for protecting human life from conception.
It is commonly said that nobody has a right to impose their morals on anyone else. This view is hailed as tolerance of diversity, but it lacks rational substance. It cannot be reasonably applied to abortion since by it a mother imposes her morals on her child. Common sense dictates that individual liberties must be limited if they impose on others'' basic rights. We do not tolerate diversity expressed in rape, child molestation, armed robbery, etc. All lawmaking imposes morality, since all laws declare one behavior right and another behavior wrong.
Since we need laws and laws inevitably impose morality, it seems prudent to promote laws that are based on consistently rational thought and uncompromised reverence for the core dignity and worth of each human person.
