Alternet Writer Compares Unborn Babies to Zombies

The abortion-on-demand crowd is slowly losing the argument, and they’re tossing up every nonsensical argument they can think of in the hope that something will work.

On June 11, Alternate posted an article by Planned Parenthood-honored psychologist Valerie Tarico. In an article titled “What the Unborn and the Undead Have in Common,” Tarico explored the so called similarities between zombies and unborn babies in an attempt to brand the pro-life argument as “magical.”

Tarico’s central argument was that personhood is based on thought, so “In the beginning stages of gestation, a human embryo or fetus has no more qualities of personhood than a zombie.”

“We don’t really care about how many zombies die” according to Tarico, because they “can’t think.” And so it logically follows that we should not care about the 59 million babies aborted since 1973.

Tarico thought this macabre comparison illustrated that pro-life arguments are based on fantastical beliefs. “Religious opposition to abortion is based on a kind of magical thinking much like that in zombie stories—the idea that human bodies can be animated by some supernatural force.”

Of course Valerie Tarico wasn’t born, her mother shat her out of her rectum.

“personhood is based on thought”

Imagine if an anesthesiologist thought that way when they put you under. “No longer a person” lies on the operating table. Also, when you’re asleep at night, can someone “abort” you then?

Abortion supporters and those getting abortions are the true zombies.

“personhood is based on thought”

Does anyone remember giving editorial oversight on existential reality to the left?

What could be more innocent than a child in the womb?

To murder one is horrific much less to kill millions.

Wait, she says they’re babies. I thought we were told they were merely blobs of cells.

So we all used to be zombies! How and when did we lose our “zombiness” and become human?

Of course, this is all nonsense, designed to justify the baby-killers and their vile ideologies and practices!! Maybe the baby-killers are the REAL zombies!!!!

When humans sleep, their brains are VERY active indeed. The purpose of sleep is renewal!!!!

Pre-born babies, and people under anesthesia, appear to have active brains, too! The abortionists and euthanasia advocates are WRONG-O as usual!!!!

This is the kind of sick inhuman being who shouldn’t be on the loose in civil society.

“Pre-born babies, and people under anesthesia, appear to have active brains, too!”

So did Stephen Hawking. You wouldn’t know it, looking at him, though. One oughtn’t to presume.

Everybody knows that the doctor pushes a button on the fetus during delivery to activate human being mode.

The pro baby murderers can self abort themselves and hopefully their kind will go extinct.

So they are for executing the mentally deficient in prison? Right now if you have a room temp IQ you cannot be executed because they say you don’t comprehend what is happening. Some prisoners will play dumb and fail IQ tests to avoid the needle.
