Countering pro-abortion lies about Personhood

lighthousePro-abortion groups like to spread lies about Personhood amendments and legislation. Whenever pro-aborts make these claims, they don’t offer any evidence to support their claims. Here’s a list of some of their lies, followed by the truth. 1. Personhood would “make it difficult for doctors to help women with life-threatening ectopic pregnancies and incomplete miscarriages”. Wrong. 5. “Because the amendment requires the protection of life at any stage, it may impact end-of-life care.” Wrong. When unborn babies are recognized as persons with a right to life, a pregnant mother will always be able to get life-saving treatment for ectopic pregnancy, incomplete miscarriages or any other life threatening condition. See Prenatal Personhood, can mothers get life-saving medical treatment? The right to life of postnatal human beings is already protected under law, therefore re-recognizing the right to life has no effect on postnatal human beings. If any end-of-life practice in any way tramples on the right to life, such “care” should be adjusted to fit within the right to life already protected under law. 2. “A personhood law could ban in vitro fertilization (IVF).” Wrong. 6. “A personhood law would force one religious view onto all citizens through law.” Wrong. Recognizing that human embryos are persons implies that IVF clinics treat the tiny human beings in their charge ethically, with reasonable appropriate care just as they do for other patients. See Personhood doesn’t ban IVF. Personhood would stop the use of lethal force to force religious and non-religious views on unborn children. By protecting the child from getting killed, personhood protects her religious freedom. See Infringing religious freedom. 3. “Some forms of birth control could be banned”.  Misleading. 7. “Women could be investigated and prosecuted for miscarriages.” Wrong. Pro-aborts speak of “some” but they don’t mention what standard would be used to determine which birth control devices could be banned. Personhood implies a ban on only birth control devices that kill an unborn human being. Only abortion-causing devices could be affected. Contraceptives would not be affected. Miscarriages don’t provide reasonable suspicion of a crime, so such tragedies would not be investigated. In places where abortion is illegal (or has been illegal) women are not (and were not) investigated for miscarriage. See Personhood would not criminalize miscarriages. 4. “A personhood law prompts questions about all laws referring to a person, resulting in costly reviews and changes. For example, do we start issuing conception certificates instead of birth certificates?” Wrong.   Personhood recognizes the right to life of every human being from the beginning of life. This has nothing to do with certificates or other matters unrelated to protecting life. See Pro-aborts say the darndest things.
