I hope this is the last time I have to address this topic.
I just read an email from a student who is inviting people to a speech by a woman running for lieutenant governor for the state of Iowa, Doctor Andrea McGuire, who is a large supporter of abortions. I learned of McGuire’s background by Googling her biographic information.
After reading the bio data on McGuire, I found an article where a Catholic Priest said that Catholics should not support her and her agenda. One of the responders posted that until conservatives could come up with a viable alternative to ending unwanted pregnancies they need to “shut your pie hole.”
The main foundation of allowing abortions is the fallacy that unborn children, fetuses, embryos, whatever you want to call them is not a living creature and therefore there is no immorality to aborting them.
Well, let’s dispel that delusion right now. Biology Online defines life as ” specifically distinguished by the capacity to grow, metabolize, respond (to stimuli), adapt, and reproduce.” An unborn human meets the definition of a living creature.
Merriam Webster’s Dictionary defines abortion as “the termination of a pregnancy after, accompanied by, resulting in, or closely followed by the death of the embryo or fetus.”
The reason that many liberals don’t want to admit that the unborn child is living is if they do, they have to admit that they are killing a life for the sole purpose of not accepting responsibility for their actions. Other than the immaculate conception, every pregnancy has involved two people. In the vast majority of those cases it was between two consenting people. If you consent to being involved in an action that is used to procreate, you are responsible for the results.
If people don’t want to have children, they need to protect themselves from said child BEFORE jumping into the sack together, not running to the abortion clinic afterwards. If you don’t you need to accept responsibility. Having an abortion due to an unwanted pregnancy is like a drunk driver who hits and kills a pedestrian and then claiming they were not responsible for the death because they never intended to kill anyone while driving.
According to the Center for Disease Control (which does not make sense to me as why would the disease control people be recording abortion information), 1/6th of every pregnancy in America was ended with the intentional death of the unborn child. In 2011, 3,953,593 babies were born in America. That means there were approximately 790,719 babies killed during that time too.
I’m sure that this will result in some that have been following this blog to cease following but I needed to post this reality check before people jump into bed with certain politicians because once you have you can’t abort your vote afterwards.
