Right to life is the way forward, never death

I commend the hundreds of thousands of people who attended the annual March for Life in Washington D.C. last Friday.
America's March for Life has become the world's pro-life protest against the aggressive promotion of abortion and population control sweeping the world which is now the official policy of the United States, thanks to the administration of President Barack Obama.
If an embryo is human, it is a person - this is the golden rule for bioethics.
It is a scientific fact that human life begins in its entirety at the moment of conception. From the first moment the embryo has a full anthropological qualification; there is a continuity; there are no leaps that have in them substantial mutations; the embryonic body develops.
Every manual of human embryology states that the zygote is already an unrepeatable human being, unique in its species, a different being from the mother and the father. Ultimately, free will cannot be cited as justification for society to allow moral choices that strike at the most fundamental rights of others. Such a choice is abortion, which constitutes the taking of innocent human life.
The so-called "right" to abortion championed by feminists and abortion supporters ends up enslaving women because they are turned into instruments of sexual gratification. If the woman can abort without restrictions, the man is free of any responsibility as father, leaving the woman as his tool of sexual gratification in a position of "non-equality".
Let us fight for life. Life is the future of man, never death.
