Our hero: Racism, sexism, and homophobia are wrong because they devalue people based on superficial qualities. We’re all members of the human species, so we’re all equally valuable. Fetuses are members of the human species, too.

Racism, Sexism, and Homophobia Are Wrong

In our experience, most pro-choice people think that because of the nature of the preborn, they don’t deserve the same basic rights as other human beings. They think abortion is similar to killing a plant or removing a tumor.

We can agree with our pro-choice peers that the preborn are different than other human beings in many ways. For example, the preborn are smaller and less intelligent than other human beings. However, big people are not worth more than small people. Intelligent people are not worth more than unintelligent people. We think all living human organisms equally deserve basic rights, regardless of race, sex, sexual orientation, age, or anything else.

Person 1: Why are you pro-life? Person 2 (our hero): In short, I’m pro-life because I support equality. I think all members of the human species are equally valuable, regardless of sex, race, intelligence, or anything else.Our hero: People are diverse. At the same time, we all equally deserve basic human rights, whether we’re rich or poor, male or female, young or old, etc. Why? We’re so different. What do we all have in common?Person 1 (our hero): You and I equally deserve the right to life. So do all our friends. What do we have in common that makes us equal? Person 2: Biologically, we’re all living human beings. Person 1 (our hero): Agreed! Let’s talk about whether a fetus is a living human being too.Person 1: Yes, of course killing toddlers is wrong. But a fetus is different than a toddler. Person 2 (our hero): I’m glad we agree killing toddlers is wrong. I agree there are a lot of differences. Can we talk through the differences that you think matter?
