They are…

The unborn, terminally ill, severely disabled, elderly, and embryonic human are all full members of the human family. Our value is grounded in our shared humanity and not in any functional considerations or accidental properties like age, health, or developmental stage.

We are…

As equal members of the human family, we ought to approach any action that will result in the destruction of an innocent human life with the utmost caution and trepidation. No member of our family holds a privileged position of authority to choose life or death for others without the most extreme justifications.

I am…

I am merely human. Large-scale change and restoration comes through the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Only God can transform society toward perfect justice. All I can do is argue that all members of the human family ought to be treated with dignity and respect one audience at a time, whether the audience is one person or thousands of people. Those with whom I disagree must be recognized as the image bearers of God, and I must never forget that as much as it is possible for me I am to be at peace with all men.

Does recognizing such an obligation in the context of pregnancy involve treating women as incubators or ‘fetal containers’? Surely not: If I am a pregnant woman, it is no more treating me as an incubator to expect me to respect my baby’s body and allow it to remain within my own than it is treating the baby’s father as a cradle to expect him to avoid violent, reckless or negligent treatment of the baby after birth. At least until such time as other carers can take over, it is reasonable to expect those supporting a child to continue to do so, and in any case, to avoid deliberate harm and/or harmful bodily incursions on the child.
