The Pro-Life View on Abortion

Welcoming All Humans Throughout Life

Abortion is one of the most divisive issues in modern society, with strong opinions on both sides. At Americans United for Life (AUL), we believe in the sanctity of human life, and that every human being has inherent dignity and worth. That’s why we advocate for pro-life policies that protect both women and their unborn children. We’re working hard towards the day when all humans are welcomed in life and protected by law.

The Humanity of Pre-Born Children

At the heart of the pro-life view is the belief in the sanctity of human life. In opposing abortion, we acknowledge the humanity of the child in the womb which fuels our effort to protect the pre-born child’s life. From conception, the preborn human being has a unique and complete genetic composition derived from both the mother and the father. As early as five (5) weeks’ gestation, the preborn human being’s heart begins beating. The preborn human being begins to move about in the womb at approximately eight (8) weeks’ gestation.

Every Human Life Matters

We believe that every human being, from conception to natural death, has inherent dignity and worth. This belief is based on our understanding that human life is a gift, and that we as a society have a responsibility to protect and cherish human life. We reject the notion that some lives are more valuable than others, and that it is acceptable to end the life of an unborn child for any reason. We believe every human is valuable and should be protected. All humans, including babies in the womb, deserve the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. One human’s pursuit of happiness does not allow them to end the life of another.

Protecting Women and Children

We believe that protecting women and children is essential to building a culture of life. We never advocate for harm to come to women. In fact, abortion is what harms not only the pre-born child but also the mother, both physically and emotionally. Women who undergo abortions are at increased risk for a range of health complications, including breast cancer, infertility, and psychological trauma. The child, on the other hand, is denied the right to life and the opportunity to fulfill his or her potential. In our support of mothers, we’re working to ease the burden of childbearing by making birth free. We believe that every woman deserves access to comprehensive health care that respects her dignity and protects her health and well-being.

The Reality of Abortion

It is important to understand the reality of abortion: it ends a human life. Consider the impact of over 60 million human lives that have been ended. How many future presidents, sports stars, or cultural icons have been aborted? We will never quite know the impact of the reality of abortion because our potential as humans is so infinite. Abortion is not a simple medical procedure, but a life-changing decision that has significant consequences for women, their future families, and our society. In the United States, more than 60 million abortions have been performed since Roe v. Wade legalized abortion in 1973. That’s 60 million lives that were never given a chance to live and make a contribution to society. We believe that this is a tragedy that must be addressed. Americans United for Life works in advocating for pro-life policies and programs that provide alternatives to abortion and support for women and their families.

Building A Culture of Life

At Americans United for Life, we are committed to building a culture of life that respects the dignity of every human being. We believe that every life matters, and that it is our duty to protect the most vulnerable among us. We advocate for pro-life solutions that promote the health and well-being of women and their unborn children, and we work to raise awareness about the reality of abortion and its impact on society. Join us in this important work, and together, we can build a world where every life is cherished and protected.
