Why "Children" rather than "Babies"? Because, for some, "children" may more effectively connote the "personhood" of the young life in the womb and the vitality of that person as well.

Why "Birth" rather than "Life"? Because the unborn child is already alive and awaiting her/his birthday.

So these three little words make three profound statements:

1) The occupant of a pregnant woman's womb is not merely a "product of conception" or "blob of tissue" or "wad of cells" - she/he is a "person".

2) That person has "the right to life".

3) That "life" already exists and no one has a right to exterminate it.

We all must come to recognize the human person in everyone who is victimized, rejected, abandoned, and defenseless in the worldwide community. This cannot be accomplished if we do not firstly recognize and protect the most defenseless among us - the unborn.
