Pro-life groups are right about one thing: the location of the baby inside or outside the womb cannot make such a crucial moral difference... The solution, however, is not to accept the pro-life view that the fetus is a human being with the same moral status as yours or mine. The solution is the very opposite: to abandon the idea that all human life is of equal worth.

The culture of death is not static. It incrementally permeates deeper and further until we find ourselves surrounded death and by those who celebrate it. Therefore, without shame, an executive director of Planned Parenthood says it’s not her place to speak for or against aborting a child because she is a girl.

There are already many millions of women demographically missing from the world because girl babies are not considered of “equal worth.” The Planned Parenthood director may not realize it, but she has already bought into Singer’s argument that all human life is not of equal worth. And once that lie has been embraced, there is no limit to the wickedness one person will commit against another in the name of convenience.
