CWN Editor's Note: “That even one senator, let alone 44 senators voted against the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, is an injustice that should horrify and anger the American people and commit us to decisive political action,” said Archbishop Joseph Naumann, chairman of the US bishops’ Committee on Pro-Life Activities. “A vote against this bill is a vote to extend Roe v. Wade’s license for killing unborn children to killing newborn babies.”

    The question is no longer: "When does human life begin?" That was answered by science a long time ago, and by practical experience many millennia before that. No, the question ever since Roe v. Wade is: "At what point does a human person obtain the right to live?" Among the abortion advocates human life is _not_ a right, but rather a _privilege_, a privilege that they, the elite, have the _right_ to award. Like climate change, the definition of life is no longer a matter of science, but of law.
