As evidence that some people get older without getting wiser, this pro-abortion post by an elderly woman and the accompanying comments section trotted out one fallacious sound bite after another. I noticed it because it linked to my site somehow.
I could have spent hours there but just left the comment below. No use spending too much time in an echo chamber. They actually seem to think that their bumper sticker mentality makes sense.
The indented parts are comments from the post and the rest is what I wrote.
Like my husband says, “Whether or not to have a child is a woman’s choice. Period. End of story.”
That ignores that a female is destroyed 50% of the time during an abortion. Actually, over 50%, since virtually all gender selection abortions are performed to kill females for the sole reason that they are female. It is the ultimate misogyny.
All your back-slapping sound bites ignore a scientific fact: A new human being is created at conception — http://tinyurl.com/yfje8lq . That isn’t religion, that is science. And abortion destroys that innocent human being.
And how those a-holes have the gall to call themselves ‘pro-life’ when they are calling for death to anyone who is pro-choice is beyond me.
That is a straw man argument. I know it is convenient to demonize your opponents instead of addressing their arguments, but really now — all pro-lifers call for the death of any pro-choicers? C’mon.
For some women it is a time of great sadness – a pregnancy gone wrong, a wanted child not to be.
Using that logic one could support infanticide.
Against abortion? Don’t have one.
Slave owners used the same nonsensical argument. It is like saying, “Don’t like theft? Then don’t steal.” Once again you ignore the human being in the equation who gets killed.
Have you ever noticed that anti-abortionists don’t give a damn about the baby once it’s out of the womb? That’s when all interest in life ceases with these folks.
I hadn’t noticed that. There are more crisis pregnancy centers than abortion clinics, and they offer their services for free — unlike Planned Parenthood, who charges $400 for abortions no matter how poor you are.
And even if we did nothing to help with our time and money, we could still protest the destruction of innocent human life. If the government was going to solve the homeless problem by killing homeless people, could you protest that without having to take them into your house?
