Ever cornered a “pro-choicer” with logic
and had them simply hold up their hand, lower their head,
and say “a woman has the right to choose”?
It’s not a defensible position.
I had an interesting conversation with an intelligent young lady who refuses to red meat because she loves animals and doesn’t feel that they should be harmed. She is also pro-choice. I asked her “why is it that alot of you pro-choice people care so much about the suffering of animals, but not of humans?” She also doesn’t believe in the death penalty. I asked her why the life of a guilty criminal is more important than the life of an innocent baby. She had not answer, just that it is in between the mother and God.
I agree. But “a woman has a right to choose” is all they have. And I don’t ever argue with anyone about abortion. “It’s a child, not a choice” is all I HAVE.
By the way — I have a sister who murdered her child at about 24 weeks of pregnancy at 20 years old. We grew up as pastor’s kids — she had turned her back on her faith and family entirely at that point. She had NEVER had any sign whatsoever of mental illness — until the abortion. Within a few months, she began to literally lose her mind, out of deep-seated guilt that sent her into the darkness of clinical & chemical manic/depression, of which she suffers with to this day, some 15+ years later. She told me once in a moment of clarity that there is a part of her that is glad for the horror of mental illness since the abortion, since it makes her feel at some level that she is serving a life sentence for the life she took, knowing it was murder. That tore me up that she felt that way, since I know she has asked for and receive forgiveness from God for what she did. I know that God can heal her mind and emotions if she’s willing, but it seems she finds some level of “comfort” in knowing that she just couldn’t go on with her life, after ending the life of another.
Abortion destroys more lives than just that innnocent child’s.
