Abortion victim at 15 weeks after fertilization.
Human development begins at fertilization when a sperm fuses with an oocyte to form a single cell, the zygote. [This] marks the beginning of each of us as a unique individual.

There are often difficult circumstances surrounding a pregnancy, just as there may be difficult circumstances after birth. If we wouldn't kill a human child after birth because of difficult circumstances, why would we kill the same child for the same reason when she's a little bit younger? Where you are does not determine what you are — and we know from science that human life begins at fertilization. Shouldn't all human beings have human rights?
Sexual assault is a horrible crime, and perpetrators should be punished to the fullest extent of the law. The question is: Is the child guilty or innocent? We should punish those who are guilty, and protect those who are innocent. Survivors of sexual assault deserve our love and support, and innocent children do not deserve the death penalty for the crime of their father.
Since we know from science that life begins at fertilization, we know there are two human beings in a pregnancy — two patients to care for. Thankfully, with modern medicine, abortion is never medically necessary to save the life of the mother — and it is always wrong. We can save the mother's life without directly and intentionally killing the child. See the Dublin Declaration, and this explanation from a former abortionist.
