In a letter to the Editor this past Sunday, David Mikulec has tried the tired old argument that pro-lifers only care about life in the womb and not our children after they leave the womb. Referred to as the "Consistent Ethic of Life", we believe that human life is sacred under each and every circumstance and under all stages of development. People understand that we have to help the poor, victims of crime and war, etc. Even if we don't know their names or haven't seen the faces of these victims, we know it is our business to help them. We do not hear people say, "I would never abuse my child, but if the other person wants to, that is her choice". That is what Senator Kerry is saying when he says that he believes that human life begins at conception but if someone else wants to kill the unborn human life within her womb, that is her choice.
