I haven’t heard much from pro-lifers about this subject, and I get why. Talking about the death of women from self-induced abortions is tough because pro-lifers care about the lives of women and don’t want anyone to die of self-induced abortions. Along with that, they understand that abortion is still morally wrong and should not remain legal.
The abortion issue is summed up this way: that if it is an injustice to intentionally kill innocent human beings, and abortion intentionally kills innocent human beings, then abortion is an injustice. The pro-choice argument that more women will die if abortion is made legal, while it is emotionally strong, is intellectually hollow and deceiving.
Since when are we obligated to make injustices legal so that the person committing the injustice doesn’t suffer its natural consequences?
I cannot understand why it is a right for women to kill their children?!
I am making it easy for the pro-choicer to validate why I need to make it “safe and legal” for a person to kill her child. The pro-choicer has to show me why women have the right to kill their children, or has to show me evidence that the unborn are not human beings and are exempt to their right to life.
n fact, I make an official declaration. I, Ana Benderas, vow to forever change my mind and efforts to oppose abortion if somebody out there can convince me that women have the right to kill innocent human beings or that the unborn are not human beings and have no intrinsic right to life as assumed of born human beings.
I challenge anyone passionate about a woman’s “right to choose” to enlighten me.
Until then, I insist: abortion kills innocent persons. Killing innocent persons is wrong. Killing innocent persons in your own house by yourself is wrong and dangerous.
I don’t have the obligation nor feel in any way at all that I have to put aside my sense of justice so that you can kill your child more “safely.”
