I updated the Pro life reasoning PowerPoint slides I use for CareNet Pregnancy Center volunteer training. I made a bunch of tweaks, updated a few arguments and added one about consciousness based on Theobromophile’s reasoning in one of her comments. Here’s a paraphrase:
To legally remove someone from life support who is not conscious you need to demonstrate that you are acting in that person’s best interests (as they would so act if they were conscious) and that there is little or no hope of recovery. Abortion fails on both counts.
I’d be glad to present these to church or other groups around the Houston area if the timing works out. Just email me if you are interested.
I’m still going with Fred Thompson for President. I think he has the right views (at least as right as any other candidate), is focusing on the right issues, has good leadership qualities and electibility. Simply put, I think he’d make a good President.
If Huckabee were running for next-door neighbor he’d have my vote. But he isn’t presidential material in my view. Romney has some good qualities but I don’t trust his pro-life and pro-family positions. Switching views isn’t a problem if done convincingly and for the right reasons. Giuliani? He’s better than Hillary, of course, but that isn’t saying much.
Abortion supporter knocks 69 yr. old pro-lifer unconscious; media silent – Would they be silent if the roles were reversed? Not likely.
What about pain that we don’t understand? Among other things, Greg Koukl points out that people never ask “Where is God when evil happens?” when they are doing something evil like adultery.
