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:
