Letter: Abortion is a result, not a cause

At this time we have been given the knowledge and two techniques to perform which show beyond a shadow of a doubt that human life begins the moment a human egg is fertilized by a human sperm: (1) an embryo transplant, whereby a human embryo is transplanted from one female to another receptive female, and (2) an in vitro fertilization, a human egg fertilized with a human sperm in a Petri dish, followed by a uterine implantation into a receptive female.

Both of these techniques prove that life begins at conception and/or fertilization of a human female’s egg by a human male’s sperm. This fact of when life begins for the human is both tested and proven by the fact that both a transplanted embryo and an implanted in vitro fertilized egg will develop having only the DNA and other inheritable characteristics from the humans who supplied the egg and the sperm at the moment of fertilization (conception).

The receptive female in whose uterus either an embryo or the in vitro fertilized egg was transplanted does not add to or subtract from these characteristics, but only furnishes the nutrients and protection necessary for human growth and development.

Thus, we have been provided the necessary information which demonstrates beyond a shadow of a doubt that human life begins at conception. To remove or induce expulsion of an unborn human offspring, whether it is in the state of a fertilized human egg or a human embryo, is deliberately destroying a human life which would develop to maturity in the human uterus, and after leaving the uterus, in the world.

Human life cannot survive on its own outside a human womb before it is viable, somewhere between 12th and 28th weeks of gestation. Also, the human offspring is incapable of obtaining the necessary nutrients, shelter and other necessities to maintain its life until several years later.

Both the human female and male made the decision to use a part of their bodies, the egg and/or the sperm, to form another human the moment they responded to the lust of their flesh in sexual intercourse or fornication, the cause behind abortion.

  • "We’ve had a great ride"

  • Move carefully, but soon

    No one intended for it to happen. No one had any bad motives.
    But during a period of 40 years or more, quite a few people didn’t do enough planning, didn’t have enough foresight to see what all of the development in Dalton would do.

  • We must do better

    The numbers tell a sad tale.
    Registered voters: 36,843.

  • Letter: Control immigration

    Thousands are starting to pour into our country, and things are getting personal. Why would we end up the bad guys if we turn away children who aren’t ours? How does it make us better people to let one man steal from our children and stand by and do nothing?
