The Blob of Tissue Argument

Advocates of abortion often argue that what's at stake in an abortion is a blob of tissue.  But real-time ultrasounds have shown us the humanity of the child in the womb. 

We can now see preborn babies turning somersaults, sucking their thumbs, and sticking out their tongues--actions that would be impossible for a mere blob of tissue. 


The "It's My Body" Argument

Here are some important points to consider:


These facts demonstrate that a preborn child is not simply part of a woman's body, but a distinct individual who should have rights of his or her own.

If you know women and men who have lost a child through abortion, The Catholic Church offers  "A post-abortion Healing Ministry":

Project Rachel, the Catholic Church's ministry to those who have been involved in abortion,
is a diocesan-based network of specially trained priests, religious,
counselors, and laypersons who provide a team response of care
for those suffering in the aftermath of abortion. 
In addition to referring for Sacramental Reconciliation,
the ministry provides an integrated network of services,
including pastoral counseling, peer to peer ministry,
spiritual direction,  and referrals to mental health professionals.

"I didn't think anyone would understand how I felt.

I was so relieved to be able to share my experience 

with someone who understood what I was going through.

No one condemned me. They understood and helped me forgive myself."
