We cannot separate moral, scientific and logical truth from our actions
if we are to succeed. The truth is the truth. It cannot be ignored or
denied. For this reason, the pro-life movement, by our statements that
life begins at conception and ends at natural death, will succeed.

§ This deliberate killing is clearly violating the God-given, equal, and unalienable
right to life of each of these children. What, however, are we to think of IVF wherein
fertilization is attempted for only one or two oocytes at a time? Does this violate
anyone's personhood rights? Indeed it does and in more ways than one.
§ Proponents of IVF try to liken this death toll to the estimated 20-31% of miscarriages
that occur with natural conception. There is, however, a huge difference in that
God, from whom human rights flow, ordained the natural processes in which miscarriages
unavoidably occur but has never commanded artificial processes: http://www.all.org/article/index/id/MjkwOA/.
§ Again, it is one thing for a child to develop a defect during procreation the
way God designed it and something altogether different when the child’s affliction
involves manmade fashions.
§ Finally, at the head of all this trampling upon the rights of the children, there
is the intrinsic problem that each IVF conception substitutes laboratory reproductive
processes for the marital act of procreation and thereby violates the right of the
child to an origin consistent with his or her dignity as a human person: http://www.lifeissues.net/writers/bru/bru_38artificialreproduction.html.
§ Furthermore, with the violation of one person's unalienable rights being an assault
on the rights of all, each act of IVF contributes to the "long progression of massive
societal changes, fundamental changes in our outlook, that reduce babies, and by
extension all people, to the status of things":
