To the editor:
I am here to respond to several things I've recently heard in defense of abortion "rights," and I'd like to note that these are perhaps the dumbest things I've ever heard of. I feel that it is necessary to share these things with your readers in case they find themselves in a debate regarding abortion: Consider this your sword and shield for those who soullessly shout "my body, my choice!"
Perhaps the most commonly heard argument in defense of abortion is that "men are in no position to have a say or voice on abortion." Really? Well in that case, according to many pro-choice people, men should refrain from debating abortion unless they support it, which in that case is totally fine. Have they forgotten that the baby is half the father's? They should remember that by the same token, they're saying that anyone who is white shouldn't talk about slavery and anyone who isn't Jewish talk about the Holocaust. Ridiculous? You bet it is.
In addition, the argument that screams "my body, my choice" is acceptable for women who demand taxpayer-funded birth control (which, in my view, goes to show how irresponsible they are), but apparently it doesn't apply for those who want to have a large family, like the Duggars. This argument is coming from the same ideology of liberalism that says we follow science, but when it comes to abortion, apparently science doesn't matter. Let me ask all the pro-choice readers these questions: Does a woman's body have two beating hearts? And does a woman's body have two sets of DNA? If you answer "yes" and still support abortion, you're only fooling yourself.
And finally, those who think that anyone who comes between a woman who wants to have an abortion and her doctor is encroaching on the Equal Protection Clause under the U.S. Constitution. However, at the same time, they think that Obamacare is a good idea, where the entire government should get involved in your medical decisions and plans. And they're the ones who call us pro-lifers hypocrites? Let us not forget that liberals who want 14-year-olds to have access to birth control pills are also advocating for small-sized sodas - and they call this health care?
Abortion is not health care because killing an innocent baby isn't healing anything. Period. And whether you like it or not, the pro-life movement has the winning argument here.
