This post about Purchasing A Gun vs. Purchasing An Abortion made some excellent points about the many inconsistencies in how the Left approaches the Constitution, regulations and life issues. Hat tip: My favorite blogger
Let’s take a look at the differences and similarities between purchasing a gun and purchasing an abortion.
Both guns and abortions are goods or services which are produced and purchased on the free market.
When a gun is purchased, there’s a 99% chance that gun will never result in the death of a single individual. When an abortion is purchased, there is a 99% chance the abortion will result in the death of an individual.
My tax dollars aren’t used to purchase a gun for someone who can’t afford it. My tax dollars are used to purchase an abortion for a woman or a girl who can’t afford it.
You can legally use a gun to kill an attacker in self-defense, if your life is threatened. You can legally use an abortion to kill a baby for any reason, including the mother’s life being threatened by the baby.
You can get suspended from school for drawing a picture of a gun. Read here. You can get the morning after abortion pill from the school nurse.
There is a background check and a waiting period in order to purchase a gun. There is no waiting period or back ground check to purchase an abortion. For a girl under 18 there are 6 states that require at least one parents permission 24 to 48 hours before the abortion.

On the one hand the left worked to create and expand a nonexistent right, which forced their morality concerning abortion on the states and the people, and on the other hand, they want to restrict and take away a clearly stated right concerning fire arms, which would also force their morality on the states and the people.
I guess the lesson to be learned is, the left wants to force their morality on us through government coercion, rather than trying to persuade people to accept their morally superior ideas as gospel.
I encourage you to read the entire post to pick up the points about the Constitution..

Thanks for posting my article. You might like the post titled “Marriage, Why Is It Protected By The Law”. It’s a different take on the marriage issue being discussed in the Supreme Court this week.
Thanks – and keep up the great work!
As per the quote I posted on your wall the other day Neil….those who are pro-abort have forfeited any right to complain about children being killed by firearms wielded by madmen. I firmly believe this. I think these people should spare us the righteous outrage about incidents like Sandy Hook when they aren’t interested in shutting down Planned Parenthood’s clinics.
Exactly. I’m to the point where I will just tell people that if they are pro-abortion then I couldn’t care less what they think about gun control.
I’m all for persuading people in a gentle fashion, but sometimes, you need some good old-fashioned moral righteousness. “How can you THINK of complaining about Sandy Hook when you voted for a guy who lets babies die on the operating table?!?”
Is this really your favorite blogger? If so I can see why. Simply love the content. Just wondering if there are any… ahh family ties?
Ha! That blog itself isn’t my favorite but my daughter, who’s a paid blogger at a big liberal university, is! She sent me the link. Although that blog is really good!
Great, so my blog still stands a chance 🙂
P.S. stating the obvious, I hope, but my daughters are very conservative and articulate. Which is why I don’t mention them by name here!
