Fact #10: If there is uncertainty about when human life begins, the benefit of the doubt should go to preserving life.
It is a scientific fact that life begins at conception. However, if one personally has even a shred of uncertainty about when life begins, then they are still morally obligated to err on the side of life and NOT have an abortion. Why? Because to make a mistake about the exact time when life begins is to kill an innocent human being.
Suppose there is uncertainty about when human life begins. (Hint: There isn't. It is a scientific fact that life begins at conception.)
If a hunter is uncertain whether a movement in the brush is caused by a person, does his uncertainty lead him to fire or not to fire?
If you're driving at night and you think the dark figure ahead on the road may be a child, but it may just be the shadow of a tree, do you drive into it, or do you put on the brakes?
If we find someone who may be dead or alive, but we're not sure, what is the best policy? To assume he is alive and try to save him, or to assume he is dead and walk away? Shouldn't we give the benefit of the doubt to life?
You can head right over to Fact #1 and see reams of scientific evidence from textbook after textbook, expert after expert, and guess what? It's a scientific fact that life begins at conception.
However, let's pretend that you didn't even bother to read through all of the data. Even if you don't have a clue when life begins, you STILL have a moral obligation to NOT have an abortion. Why? Because unless you are 100% convinced that the baby inside of you is not a life then you are taking a chance that you might be killing an innocent human being.
