Interview With an Abortion Advocate

Sometimes I'm not sure if the issue is primarily one of sin, stupidity or maybe a combination of both.

The woman doesn't seem stupid...she seems unable to think critically and is parroting what she has been taught by her 'betters.' It is obvious she has been evangelized by the pro-abortion movement. You can partially blame our education system for this type of interaction. And one thing that is missing from the interview is the question about what happens to post-abortion women. Is this poor woman even aware of the emotional fallout of abortion, let alone the health issues? I am convinced that the pro-life movement needs to make the mental and physical health of post-abortion women more of an issue, since the pro-abortion people are so trapped in the 'me' mentality. If you can get them to focus on the negative repercussions of killing their babies they might listen. As it is, they are brainwashed by the women's rights vs. fetus rights perspective.

Good points, I think you're right about that.

A woman's right is paramount to another person's right?

I don't think a man's right is paramount to any other person's right.

I think the right to life really can't be trumped.

They should have asked her if the woman in the womb's rights were being violated (assuming they knew she was a girl ahead of time)
I say, if youre going to be na advocate for women's rights, you need to be an advocate for unborn women's rights as well to remain consistent to the cause.

if you are not born you are not alive. but after the 24 weeks the embryo has developed enough to be considered a human life instead of cells.

Avery, no serious pro-choice advocate claims that the child isn't alive or even that he or she is not alive in a different sort of sense than your example of sperm. (What isn't alive can't be killed. The whole argument is whether you should be allowed to kill the child or not).

Pro-choice advocates say that yes the child is alive but it doesn't have the right to use the woman's body. That's the best argument you have, I'd suggest you stick with it.

At any rate, me (a theist) discussing morality with you (an atheist) is more than just pointless it's boring. If we can't agree on square 1 (theism versus atheism) then talking about square 7,653 (justification or lack thereof regarding abortion) is completely useless. Don't you agree?
