Isn’t it funny how you can believe something and find that the people with the opposite viewpoint are just total idiots?! Yet when investigated a little further, the same things you find about them to be idiotic resemble your viewpoint (in an it’s opposite day kind of way)? And what’s funny is that neither group of people really see the hypocrisy in their thought process!
I find it interesting that most people who call themselves pro-life are usually in favor of the death penalty while most that call themselves pro-choice are against it. Isn’t that ironic? People that are pro-life want people killed for heinous crimes that they committed while people who are pro-choice want unborn children killed that did nothing wrong… I don’t understand that logic. Kill an unborn person that did nothing wrong yet let someone who committed a heinous crime continue to live?! In a way both are hypocritical but I find the pro-choice people’s logic to be more hypocritical.
In my opinion it seems more important to defend defenseless children rather than people who’ve committed crimes enough to warrant their execution. The people committing these crimes know there are laws in place and what the consequences could be, the other victim (the child to be aborted) is at fault for no other reason than somebody screwed somebody else and doesn’t want to face the consequences that they knew were quite possible as well.
Let’s just say that I’m in favor of terminating the pregnancy in cases of rape or incest. It’s a very tough argument here for that… I understand the argument that the person wasn’t even wanting or trying to get involved but still did without their consent, and I totally understand that. I hope that you or anyone you know, or even anyone you don’t know doesn’t have to go through the process of making a decision on that. It’s always easy to make decisions on things like this when it doesn’t involve you, your family or friends but imagine the shoe on the other foot.
An interesting fact about me and my place in this argument and a very fitting one as well is that before I became a Christian I was pro-choice all the way… I didn’t want to have to deal with a child if I made that mistake, I didn’t want to face the what I knew where very real possible consequences either. Just the opposite is that after becoming a Christian I have definitely had a change of heart on this and am totally pro-life.
Another thing that has changed my mind in this area is having become a father myself… Once you have your own children and realize the beauty and innocence that they entail it changes your mind on the subject, at least it did for me.
Just thought I’d say my peace on the issue and add a third chapter to this that I’ve written about. If you haven’t seen the first two then check these out:
I know we don’t know each other too well but I feel that given what you’ve done recently I needed to tell you something. You may not remember, but I hate politics something fierce so for me to comment on something political means it got a lot of publicity.
Recently you passed a law of some sort that doesn’t allow people to have abortions in your state, and in a way I kind of applaud that. In a different way I wonder what you think you will accomplish. I am not in favor of abortions at all and for years I thought that a law like you passed would be an incredible breakthrough but to be honest with you I don’t think that this will really do anything to help the abortion epidemic. Well you know what? Maybe it will help… There may be someone who is considering terminating a pregnancy that won’t do it because they can’t or won’t travel out-of-state, and for the life of an unborn child that is a definite win.
But I don’t think that’s what you’re going for… I think that you think that by doing this that people in Oklahoma that want to murder their child will just not do it because they won’t make the effort to drive an hour or two to get it done and I think you have missed this by a mile. See the solution here isn’t to block a place where they can do something that by law in the United States is legal, the only true solution here is a change of heart by the person wishing to end the life of their child for mere convenience. With a true change of heart, said person isn’t going to want to end a life. That, and that alone is the only real solution here. The hearts of people have to change. For this reason, I believe that Abortion Should Be Legal… I wrote about this before but given what you’ve done it needs to be revisited.
I wrote in a blog about What I Tell My Kids… And if a person that was considering this solution would heed that advice, to truly heed that advice (the most important advice in the world) then there is no way that they’d go through with such a tragic ending for their pregnancy. Treating other people the way you want to be treated, every one, whether in or out of the womb, would end such issues because of a change of heart required to truly do so.
What do you think of when you read the title of this blog? I am betting that one of two emotions comes to mind… One is downright anger because you vehemently disagree with abortion and think we’d be better off if it was illegal and the other is strong feeling of mutual agreement because you believe that a person has a right to dictate what happens to their body. For years,
For those of you who know me well at all I am sure this comes as a complete shock. First off let me say that I am not in favor of people having abortions. Not here to debate my feelings on that either… If you are okay with abortions that is your choice and I am not here to try and sway you, that’s above my pay grade. I believe that abortion is murder.
Legal or not, some people are going to abort unwanted children. Like it or not, there are people who don’t agree with you on this subject either. I don’t believe that making abortion illegal is going to change anything except the frequency of which even the unhealthiest abortions are performed. A person that believes an abortion is an acceptable way to rid themselves of a pregnancy isn’t going to care whether or not it is legal. They are going to get it done regardless of cost or danger involved. A person that believes this solution is okay is going to continue to think that it’s okay. Only a change in that person’s heart, in their conscience, down to the core of who they are will change their belief on this. What? You thought standing at the street holding signs and yelling at them would change their mind?! We do not need to make abortion illegal, we need for people to have a change of heart. Until that change of heart happens in a person, it doesn’t matter whether or not abortion is legal. It is legal to anyone who wants it, until that change of heart happens…
It doesn’t matter what your favorite politician says about doing away with abortion, the only thing that will truly change the abortion solution is a change of heart.
