Pro-lifers would rather be Pro-choice

besmart

Rhetorical? No. I mean this. The mental strain of being truly pro-life is overwhelming. To be pro-life is to accept that up to 2,000,000,000 innocent children have been thoughtlessly killed over the past fifty years. To be pro-life is to believe the person who may have been your husband or wife was killed before their first breath. To be pro-life is to accept that large groups of kids are getting slaughtered by the thousand every day. Pro-lifers are expected to vote for politicians who treat the issue with a mere shrug. To be pro-life is heartbreaking. And I want out of this.

From a young age I have always questioned my beliefs. Never satisfied to just “accept” a belief based on feelings, I need the logic and reasoning behind a principle to accept it. I work in health care, and it doesn’t do to have an opinion. I must studiously research that opinion, and back that opinion with facts and figures – if I don’t, someone could die. The same is true with abortion. We can all agree that the pro-life/pro-choice debate is a debate of life vs. death. One side says the baby is a person, the other says it isn’t. Which is true?

I want to know which is true. I realize that most people go with their feelings and their ideas – this won’t cut it. I need objective truth and logic. The lives of two billion babies are at stake – feelings will have to wait.

Here’s my problem – the more I seek to find some dirty pro-life secret, the more I become pro-life. The more I seek to disprove pro-lifeism, the more I fall into it’s clutches.

I’ve read many arguments from both sides. I go to pro-choice sites and try to rationalize their arguments. I also go to pro-life sites and try to rationalize their arguments. What’s confusing is the pro-choice sites typically try to discredit the pro-lifers, instead of attacking their argument. They attack the person, and not the argument. – which seems silly. The pro-lifers do their fair share of trying to discredit the pro-choicers, but I find that many pro-life sites (Abort73.com in particular) offer logic based arguments. I want these arguments to be refuted, so I go over to the pro-choice sites (NAF, NARAL) and see what they have to say – know what I find? Not much. They keep attacking the person, and not the argument. I believe the world of logic calls it ad hominem – and it’s a fallacy.

Go on to Abort73.com and read some articles. Then, find some resources that demonstrate the sites arguments to be logically inconsistent, and we will have a discussion. But it is difficult when all pro-choicers do is attempt to discredit a source instead of clearly explaining why the sources argument is invalid. Please, for the sake of people like me who would rather be pro-choice. . .

Truly, I would rather be pro-choice. I’d also rather the world rained gumdrops on Mondays  –  the grass is green, whether I like it or not. Until I can get a cohesive, logic-based, biblical  argument as to why the unborn are not human beings, then my mind won’t liberated from this land where the most innocent among us are killed by the billion.

Please – help.

(If you are a pro-choicer, I’d ask that you leave your logic-based argument against the unborn being human life in the comment box – thanks)

(If you are pro-life, I ask that you leave the toughest argument against pro-lifeism in the comment box – thanks)

  1. Hello!
    Abortion is murder inside the womb. If anyone is okay with murder, abortion should come across as an ‘attractive idea’. you don’t have to have a set religion to see clearly that abortion is murder, and murder is terrible. But what makes it even worse is, these are babies. BABIES. Have you ever held the precious gift of a baby? Have you ever felt their little toes? Have you ever ran your hand over their soft hair? I have. I have a lot of little sisters, being I am the oldest.

    My best friend lost her little brother because it was a miscarriage. She said that when it was born, it was
    2 x 2 inches. Nevertheless, it had 10 toes that she could see and feel, it had fingers, it had hands and feet, and it was A BABY.

    They would give anything to have that baby back, I’m sure. While other people are killing their babies due to the fact that they have a job, or it is not healthy for them, and so on! Give the baby to an orphanage! Better yet, raise the baby! If it happened by rape… Everyone is thinking that the rapest is the bad one. AND HE IS! But, now, the mother has MURDER on her hands. So, they are about the same.

    I hope I helped!

  2. Can you be Pro-Choice and not be Pro – Abortion? What does Pro -Choice mean? It means the freedom to choose to have an Abortion if wanted or to support those who want an Abortion…

    So you cannot be Pro – Choice without being Pro – Abortion and than if you are Pro – Abortion you are also in God’s definition… Pro – Murder.

    Psalm 139:13-16 For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my Mother’s womb. I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made, Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well. My frame was not hidden from You, When I was made in secret, And skilfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed.And in Your book they all were written The days fashioned for me,When as yet there were none of them.

    Frightening Statistics – Every year in the World there are an estimated 40-50 million Abortions. This corresponds to approximately 125,000 Abortions per day.

    Some of these are late term Abortions, which have now increased. Also Abortions performed in Public Hospitals are not funded under Medicare. Therefore these figures reflect a lesser amount of Abortions than the actual number. Many more babies are lost to Abortions by Chemical means such as the Birth Control Pill and through the “Morning After” Pill and yes by backyard Abortions too.

    Job: 14-15 What will I do when God confronts me? What will my answer be when I’m called to give account ? Did not God who made me in the womb make them? is He not the same One who formed us both within our Mothers?

    Jeremiah 1:5a Before I formed thee in the womb I knew thee.

    Regardless of how small a Person is they have a right to life.

    Do we have the right to choose to destroy what God has created and given in Love ? God doesn’t make mistakes, He is the giver of life, yes our world also has sickness and pain to endure, which is not by the hand of God but for every deformity, disability, bodily malfunction, sickness or disease, God gives extra grace. He brings good from all things, for all those who Love Him and in doing so obey Him willingly. His Grace also covers the unborn, the innocent and helpless.

    Our Heavenly Father knows us in the flesh from the moment we are conceived and in the Spirit before we are Born, does anyone dare to take the Life of those He holds close to His heart and continue to do so without remorse and heart repentance which includes turning away from evil and doing good by the empowering of The Holy Spirit.

    A Fetus feels pain at 8 weeks…

    By this age the neuron-anatomic structures are present. What is needed is (1) a sensory nerve to feel the pain and send a message to (2) the thalamus, a part of the base of the brain, and (3) motor nerves that send a message to that area. These are present at 8 weeks. The pain impulse goes to the thalamus. It sends a signal down the motor nerves to pull away from the hurt.

    An example…
    Try sticking an infant with a pin and you know what happens. She opens her mouth to cry and also pulls away.

    Try sticking an 8 week old human fetus in the palm of his hand. He opens his mouth and pulls his hand away.

    A more Technical description would add that changes in heart rate and fetal movement also suggest that intrauterine manipulations are painful to the fetus. Volman & Pearson, “What the Fetus Feels,” British Med. Journal, Jan. 26, 1980, pp. 233-234.

  3. Would you have said yes Gid-Z

    Author Mary Southerland…..

    Situational ethics is now being taught in many of our Public Schools. One Teacher, wanting to illustrate that human reasoning is many times wrong, gave the following situation to a class of High School Students…

    “How would you advise a Mother who was pregnant with her fifth Child based on the following facts. Her Husband had Syphilis and she had Tuberculosis. Their first Child was born blind, the second Child died. Their third Child was born deaf while their fourth Child had tuberculosis. The Mother is considering an Abortion. Would you advise her to have one?”

    In view of these facts, most of the Students agreed that the Mother should have an Abortion. The Teacher then announced, “If you said ‘yes’, you would have just killed the great Composer, Ludwig von Beethoven.”

    You and I were created as a living, fleshed out depiction of God’s Love. We can celebrate His precious Truth in….

    Psalm 139:14-16, “I praise Thee for I am fearfully and wonderfully made, marvellous are they works and that my Soul knoweth right well.” My substance was not hid from Thee when I was made in secret and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Thine eyes did see my substance yet being unperfected and in Thy book all my members were written which in continuance were fashioned when as yet there was none of them.”(K.J.V )

    Just think of it! God Himself supervised our formation. We were created in Love for Love, with a specific and Holy purpose in mind. We can rejoice with the Psalmist who wrote…

    “Know ye that The LORD is God. it is He that hath made us and not we ourselves, we are His people and the sheep of His pasture and we belong to Him. Enter into His gates with Thanksgiving and into His courts with Praise, be Thankful unto Him and bless His name For The LORD IS GOOD, His Mercy is Everlasting and His Truth endureth to all Generations (Psalm 100: 3-5 KJV)

    Many of us buy into the lie that we are a puppet in the hands of God that He created us as mere tools to use or slaves to do His bidding and carry out His plan. In this verse, “LORD” literally means “Father” or “dearest Daddy”, indicating an intimate relationship between a Loving Father and His Child.

    God undoubtedly has plans for us but we misunderstand the Character and Heart of God when we assume that those plans are a punishment or penalty for not being good enough or having done something wrong. Jeremiah being led by The Spirit understood the heart of God toward His Children when he wrote…

    “For I know the thoughts that I think towards you, saith The Lord, thoughts of Peace and not of evil to give you an expected end” KJV.

    The best plan, the highest Plan for our lives rests in the hands of the One who Created us.

    When our lives are broken, when the plan falls apart and everything goes wrong, we need to wait on God, knowing He created us, knows us best and Loves us most…knowing we are chosen.
