From a recent commenter on the A Facebook conversation on abortion post:
You know I find it funny that the people talking about abortion in this are ones who will never have to make that decision.
This is like so many other pro-abortion* sound bites. It is an emotive, fallacious bumper-sticker slogan repeated ad nauseam such that the pro-legalized-abortionists just nod their heads at it. They never stop to think how meaningless it is.
A simple response: Debate on whether an act is moral and should be legal is never restricted to those committing the act. Do only thieves get to decide whether stealing should be legal?
* Yes, I said pro-abortion. People who wanted slavery to remain legal weren’t “pro-choice,” they were pro-slavery. (And that would make another good response: “Did only those considering owning slaves get to debate the morality of slave owning?”) And there are remarkably few “pro-choice” who oppose taxpayer-funded abortions, which is obviously pro-abortion.
