More on the abortion is terror ads
Now, it’s been a while since I’ve discussed abortion on the old blog (and for good reason). So, a refresher of my thoughts on it:
Callers to Dave Foulk’s show constantly framed their anti-abortion arguments with false language and false arguments, and an eagerness to control human sexuality. When someone calls abortion “killing children” they present a false claim. Children are not aborted. It also isn’t “infanticide”, as both child and infant are lifeforms outside the womb.
I’d like to have heard some of these comments on controlling human sexuality. Because the crazy-ass contingent of the pro-choice crowd often says that abortion is about controlling women or women’s sexuality. Sorry, crazy-ass contingent but that’s bullshit. People who oppose abortion do so because they take issue with killing babies. Period. Now, we can go all day arguing about when exactly a couple of cells become a baby but it’s a largely pointless semantic exercise. No matter how good anyone’s points are on the issue, it’s really a matter of faith for most folks as to exactly when said cells become a human or life or whatever else. And Joe has, obviously, decided where he stands on that. And so have the pro-lifers.
So, when you start implying that people’s opposition to abortion is to control women and sexuality, you lose me.
Of course, the crazy-ass pro-life contingent has issues as well. I don’t like seeing aborted fetuses flying around in the sky. I also don’t like when these bozos go protest at a clinic.
