Open Letter to Fetal Humans

I saw this over at Religion and Morality.

To my fellow humans who are entering that most precarious stage of human development.

Let me begin by congratulating you on making it through the embryonic stage. Too many of our fellow humans don’t even make it as far as you have now. Many died of natural causes. Others were cut down prior to implantation by an abortifacient. Still others are trapped in the freezers of IVF clinics, in suspended animation awaiting their fate.

You have made it to the second stage of life. But you’re not out of the woods, as they say, until you’re out of the womb. In America there are roughly 250 abortions for every 1000 live births, which means that you have (all other things being equal) a 1 in 5 chance of still being aborted. Here are 4 reasons you might be aborted and what you can do to avoid this gruesome fate.

You can read the complete original letter at The Confabulum

Being born is no guarantee of a decent life. If Obama has his way, they could be given up for adoption and land in a family with two "fathers."
