Pro-Life Humanists believe
that human rights belong to all human beings
and begin when a human being begins.
Humanism has a long standing tradition of being a secular voice of social justice and equality. Humanists have historically been defenders of the marginalized, and champions of human improvement for humanity’s sake. Pro-life humanists affirm the biological evidence of science that the lifelong continuum of individual human development begins when a new, whole, and distinct developing entity comes into existence at sperm-ovum fusion. We believe that to deny any biological member of the human species his or her basic right to continued existence based on exclusionary criteria, is to violate the very principles of equality and inclusiveness that are the foundation of humanism.
Pro-life Humanists affirms that women and their prenatal offspring are both human beings with rights. When these rights conflict, we nonetheless reject as ageist the philosophy that a a fetus must lose his or her life entire to restore a temporary loss of bodily autonomy.
Pro-Life Humanists is a haven for irreligious, nontheist, and secular-minded pro-lifers, and we pleased to partner with any individual or group who is willing to join us in articulating a secular case against abortion. We are consistent in our defense of all preborn human beings and refuse to discriminate against those conceived through violence. Pro-Life Humanists does not condone nor will we partner with any group or individual that advocates or performs acts of violence toward abortion providers or advocates.
