I’ve thought of a new way to describe my view on abortion that is so easy to understand, even morons will get the point. That said, I am not trying to change your mind if you’re pro-choice… just stating my opinion and the pro-life position in a new way.
If a majority of people said that killing someone that annoyed them was ok, it should be made legal. That’s how democracy works. Because let’s face it, there are a lot of people that are a pain in my butt, and I sure wish they were dead. It would be great if I could kill them without having to be punished. Well, what if we decided it was unconstitutional to tell people they don’t have the right to kill annoying people, and then later we discover that only 27% of Americans believe I should be able to do it? Should the law be changed? Or should we keep it legal because “the government has no right to legislate my decision process.”?
Okay, that argument all sounds really ridiculous to any logical person. It’s ridiculous because it ignores the rights of the other person. Of course it’s ok to legislate people’s decisions if the decision they make is a crime. That’s why we have a legal system.
That is EXACTLY how ridiculous I think legal abortion is… I believe that the “fetus” is a human being, deserving of life, liberty, and equality under the law, and no one… not even your mother, is allowed to kill you. She might be allowed to beat the crap out of you and lock you in a closet for days at a time (hi mom) but, not actually KILL you.
When you put the argument into terms of one adult killing another adult, it points out the ludicrosity (is that a word?) of each and every defense of legalized abortion… Think about every argument you can come up with that abortion should be legal. Now, everywhere you would use the word “fetus” insert “Billy Joel” and see how legal you think it should be. (Insert someone else if you hate Billy Joel.)
Of course, in order for you to agree with me, you’d have to agree that a “fetus” is a human being.
If you don’t believe that, then your argument to keep abortion legal, although I completely disagree… is at least totally logical, which I can respect. Please, if you’re pro-choice… please tell me this is why, not that “we shouldn’t make people’s decisions for them” crap. We legislate people’s right to choose all sorts of things… you can choose to rob, murder, rape, etc., and if you do there are consequences.
If however, you DO believe that a “fetus” is a human being, and you STILL think abortion should be legal… that makes no more logical sense than my suggestion that we kill people that annoy us. Saying we shouldn’t legislate people’s right to choose their own way is not a logical argument, either, if the “fetus” a human being.
The entire pro-life opinion hinges on the idea that human life begins at conception. If you can prove to me scientifically that a fetus IS NOT a human life, or you can prove to me a SPECIFIC time when it changes from being a “fetus” to being a “human life” then I will gladly change my position.
Unfortunately, you won’t be able to do it, because it just isn’t the case. The only leg pro-choicers ever had to stand on was the viability argument, and the more advances we make in science, the earlier viability takes place. Now, despite the scientific realities, the far left has insisted on indoctrinating people that it is in fact the truth. They have to, because without that fact, they are self-proclaimed baby killers. The concept that the argument is about a “right to choose” is just smoke and mirrors used to distract from the real issue. Everyone has free will, and thus CAN choose to do whatever the heck they want. HOWEVER, society has a right to impose consequences on people that CHOOSE to do something that is wrong, which killing a baby most certainly is. I can go out tomorrow and shoot the first driver that cuts me off. Just because I can choose to do it does not make it right, moral, or just.
So stick that in your pipe and smoke it, homies.
