Perhaps you recall the Dr. Seuss favorite Horton Hears a Who!Written by Theodore Seuss Geisel and published in 1954, this children's classic tells an age-old story that has become, for many of us, a wonderful way to illustrate who the Who is in each one of us.
Throughout the story, Horton the elephant exclaims, "A person's a person, no matter how small." That brief line tells a simple truth that today is becoming a footnote in the history of mankind. We see disregard for this truth in the abortion industry, in reproductive technology, and in the genetic manipulation of the human being. These practices – including in vitro fertilization and its progeny – deny the simple truths that define the unique identity and dignity of the individual.
