Unborn deserve answer to question of identity

Editor, the Advocate:
The Biblical account of Jesus asking Peter "Who do you say that I am?" seems to be an appropriate question that an unborn child would ask those persons who think it is okay to destroy their life.
Our society once said that slavery was OK because slaves were property, and our courts upheld such laws. Then, our laws and court decisions changed to recognize that slaves were human beings and not property.
We once had laws that protected the unborn child from an early death by abortion. Then, our U.S. Supreme Court, in a divided opinion, declared such laws unconstitutional. The effect of this ruling was to treat the unborn child as property, which could be destroyed without significant legal consequences.
Have you ever noticed how slanted AP news articles are toward abortion? Have you ever seen one written that addressed the question of when human life begins? Have you ever heard anyone who supports abortion answer the question, "When do you believe or think human life begins?" In other words, "Who do you say that I am?"
