I’ve decided to write a post about this because it’s been all over the news today. I don’t pretend to have a good argument because in my view there is no argument. In this I am right. I know it. There is no doubt. There is no question and there is no compromise. You will not (ever) convince me that I’m wrong in this. It is a deeply held truth. To convince me otherwise is not possible. I won’t even entertain the discussion. It’s useless debate. I will debate the existence of God with you (I’ll win) but not this.
So that there’s no confusion about where I stand on this issue let’s get it right out there:
Abortion is Murder.
Abortion in the fist day, week or month is murder.
Abortion in the first trimester is murder.
Abortion because of the “holy three” is murder. You might feel better about it but a life is still ended. The death is unjustifiable in almost all cases. I think that probably the only viable case is when the life of the mother is in serious risk and I don’t mean, “golly this sucks”. Even then the decision should be given the weight it deserves.
I’m male. I accept that my views might be skewed because of that. Still, that doesn’t change them or make them wrong. Maybe it just means that I can make an impartial decision. Maybe not.
The reason that I don’t debate this topic with others is because the last time I did it didn’t work out. My response was:
Convince me that it’s ok to walk up to you and shoot you in the face. Then you might be able to convince me that murdering another human is workable and that abortion should be legal.
When asked about “rape” I said,
The argument still applies. Convince me that because someone raped the person next to you that it’s ok to shoot you in the face.
When asked about “incest” I said,
Half of children born as a result of incest are born without consequence (I did the research, you don’t want to). It’s not right and it’s not fair but it is murder. In order make this more fair for you though I’ll remove half of the bullets from the gun before I try to shoot you in the face.
The conversation, as you might guess, didn’t end well.
Murder is murder and it doesn’t matter how you justify it. It’s wrong. Morally wrong. At least that’s my opinion and that’s why I care about the healthcare bill in congress today. You can’t take something that that is mine and use it to do something that I truly believe to be morally repugnant. I pay taxes. That money is mine and not the governments. It was earned by the sweat of my brow and it should not be used for this. Ever.
