Steve, as someone conceived in rape who was targeted for abortion, but legally protected at the time, I really appreciate your stand and speaking out on this. One word of advice -- you repeatedly used the word "it" when referring to preborn children, which is an error commonly made by pro-life activists, You'd never refer to a born baby as an "it." When I represented the mother in Michigan's "frozen embryo" case, the fertility doctors testified at deposition that, from conception -- one cell -- they are literally male or female and ascertainably so! Thus, we are not talking about "it," but "he or she." The words we choose make a difference. Remember Genesis 1:27, "male and female, He created them," and Genesis 5:2.
