Quite possibly the most compelling contrast. It might sway some independents, but it will not sway any pro-abortion voters.
I’ve yet to see a truly effective way of turning a pro-abort around on the issue, short of a total life transormation (ie finding God).
Sadly, Deut28, I agree. The militant ones have wicked, hard hearts. They are just blinded by a white-hot hate.
However, ex-abortionist Dr. Bernard Nathanson became pro-life through the new technology of ultrasound. His total life transformation of finding God came later. We just have to pray for those abortionists. Some do come around but obviously not enough of them.
Abortion’s/Planned Parenthood’s days ARE numbered with the return of Jesus.
Perhaps you need to explain to ask them some questions, and let them think about the answers. "If it's wrong to do something, will it become more or less wrong if more people do it?" See if you can get them to recognize that popularity does not make a wrongful action right. "If someone has done something wrong, is it better for that person to encourage or discourage others from doing likewise?" The obvious answer should be "discourage", and I would expect even liberals would see it. But next is the tricky question: "But shouldn't the person try to get others to engage in similar action, so as to make the action less wrong?"
Most Americans have either had an abortion, or have a friend or loved one who has. Many of those people think that the only way they or their friend can be "okay" is if abortion is somehow "okay". The fact is that people are human, which means that by design we sometimes do bad things. Having done bad things does not prevent one from being a good person. To be a good person, however, one must acknowledge one's past misdeeds and seek to atone for them by, among other things, discouraging other people from following one's lead.
Liberals thrive by manipulating and harnessing people's guilt. If people could learn to recognize liberals' trickery, and also learn that the way to escape guilt is to acknowledge mistakes and help others to escape liberals' manipulations, there could be a massive sea change. I'm not sure how best to start the process, though.
