If Beyoncé’s foetuses are babies, why aren’t all foetuses?

A good question, well answered.

Approaching nine million embryos and foetuses have been killed in the UK since the passing of the Abortion Act 1967, a period of 50 years in which women have had access to highly reliable contraception. Our position on abortion is in our 2015 general election manifesto.

If everyone who read this gave us just £1 – or even better, £1 monthly – we could change the world. Click here to make a difference. Thanks.

About Mike Buchanan

I'm a men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher. My primary focus is leading the political party I launched in 2013, Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them). I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League. In 2014 I launched The Alternative Sexism Project, aiming to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more grievous consequences than the sexism faced by women and girls.

    This is good until the penultimate paragraph, at which point it has to involve religion. You do not need to be religious in order to see human beings as human beings, and the statement “Christians embrace objective reality” will seem bizarre hypocrisy to many. It’s religion, after all, which helps justify horrendous practices such as MGM. Many good arguments are marred by adding a religious dimension, such as Stephen Baskerville’s otherwise excellent book Taken into Custody, which goes all God-bothering in the final chapters. If these things we believe are true, they need to be true for everyone and without invoking what many people regard as make-believe.

    That said, it is refreshing to see pregnancy interpreted as a cause of celebration and joy at the imminent arrival of new life, rather than as an opportunity for abortion. Planned parenthood is neither planned (nobody creates an embryo just to abort it) nor parenthood (which requires a living child to be born).
