You Can’t Have It Both Ways
Personally, I am pro-choice. (To a Point)
Though I don’t believe that the abortion route is one that I would choose, no one knows until they live it. What others do is between themselves and their conscience, and is frankly, no business of mine or the government.
That being said …
Do you believe abortion should be prohibited in all circumstances? (except perhaps for the health/life of the Mother)
If you do, read no further. You are not a hypocrite on this issue and this does not apply to you.
If, however, you believe that abortion should be illegal except in instances of rape or incest on religious grounds, then I propose that you are a hypocrite.
If you are opposed to a woman’s right to choose because you believe that life begins at conception and that all human life is sacred, then I pose a few seemingly simple, but deceptively complex questions.
- Why is the life resulting from rape or incest any less sacred than a life conceived in love?
- Why should it be OK to kill these innocent children who had no voice in their circumstances?
- Why would your God consider these innocents any less worthy of life than any other child?
As I said in the disclaimer, I happen to be pro-choice. (To a point, especially in cases in which the Mother’s health/life is in danger)
If you are not, however, how do you justify your hypocrisy?
Let us know below, and keep in mind the words of your Lord …
“Judge not, lest ye be judged.”
