“For the most part, people already act as though the unborn child is a human being. Generally, if a woman decides to “have her baby”, she speaks of the child in her womb as “my baby”; she tries to eat well; she saves the ultrasound picture of her child and shows it to friends; and so on. Indeed, it is natural and even easy to regard the child in the womb as a member of the human community. The one exception to this general practice is abortion, in which the unborn child is treated as a non-entity and a mistake: the fact of its existence is denied, as though it could be taken back or revoked.
Pro-lifers simply call attention to this self-deception, this inconsistency, and urge that even unborn children who are unwanted and slated for destruction be regarded as having the same intrinsic dignity and value as the wanted child.”
— Professor Michael Pakaluk

My wife laughs at me but, I talk to my unborn child about the process of his or her development.

I don’t have to be a great theologian to figure out who’s right. All I have to do is read the Church Fathers to prove to myself that they were all Calvinists. Well, I read the Church Fathers and proved to myself they were all Catholics, so that’s why I’m here.
