Ladies for Life

The heartbeat bill

Posted on: February 7, 2011

Of course, it makes most sense to protect each human being from the moment of conception. Everything else is an artificial line, as well as an immoral one.

But to afford legal protection as soon as a beating heart is detected would at least save lives, and would be a step in the right direction. William Wilberforce, if I remember right, had to settle for abolishing slave trading before he could get opponents to consider abolishing slavery itself.

Besides, even the campaign for a Heartbeat Bill might be useful. It ought to be harder to convince someone that a person is just a blob of tissue, once they have been properly informed that the ‘blob’ has a beating heart, and the accessories like veins and arteries and blood that go along with actual working hearts. Blobs, by definition, aren’t supposed to be differentiated and fine-tuned and developed like that.
