This week's cartoon, though a little late for Valentine's Day, is still appropriate for the month of February. The so called pro-choice (actually one choice) community keeps insisting that the unborn child is not a real person in spite of overwhelming evidence to the contrary. There isn't an expectant mother on earth, who eagerly awaits the birth of her child, who doesn't treat the child in her womb like a real person. She talks to it. She fondles it. She cradles it in her arms. She comments about its movements as if speaking about a real person. Because it is a real person and she instinctively knows that. The only people who do not view the unborn child as a person are those who wish to have an abortion or those who support abortion. In this simple cartoon, Vita proclaims that if she is not a real person then neither are those outside the womb, because they all share the same traits of personhood; a beating heart, a functioning brain, metabolism, human DNA, etc. It's when the born members of the human race begin adding other qualifications to personhood designed to keep the unborn members out or minimize their rights that we have a problem. Peace.
