Abortion is the Con-Choice


Supporters and detractors of abortion use very different language to describe the right of a woman to have an abortion even if there are no health complications whatsoever.

Detractors of abortion call it murder, infanticide, the killing of innocent babies who did nothing to deserve a death sentence. Fittingly, they refer to themselves as pro-life.

Supporters of abortion put the emphasis on choice – the woman’s right to choose whether or not to have a baby. They portray restrictions on abortion as a removal of freedom. Thus they refer to themselves as pro-choice.

But is support of abortion really a stand that upholds the right of choice?

Let’s use the example of a young woman, unmarried but dating. Being a liberal feminist, she sees no problem with having multiple sex partners. Free love is the philosophy!

Then one day, discovers that she is pregant. And being a liberal feminist, she heads straight for the abortion clinic to be rid of the ‘inconvenience’ and ‘punishment’ and get back to her carefree, high-flying lifestyle.

Now before she made the ‘choice’ to have an abortion, the ‘choice’ which the pro-abortion side makes such a big deal about, she had the following ‘choices’ to make:

She had the choice not to have premarital sex.

She had the choice not to have sex around her fertile time of the month.

She had the choice to use contraception while having sex.

She had the choice to seek support from the baby’s father (if she even knows which guy that is), from her family, from social services, from the local (pro-life) church, from adoption agencies.

Instead, she makes the choice to terminate the pregnancy…

And that removes the right of choice from the person who stands to lose the most from the abortion – the baby.

Did anyone ask the baby if he or she made the choice not to be carried to term? Did anyone ask the baby if he or she made the choice to be murdered? Did anyone ask the baby if he or she made the choice to surrender life just like that?

What if the baby had been allowed to be born, grow up and becomes fully mature… And then be asked his or her opinion on what choice to pick now – life or death? And if he or she agrees to it, then the forestalled murder can be carried out?

Does anyone really think the potentially-aborted person would wish his or her life had been snuffed out all those years ago?

Would YOU, o pro-abortion activist, agree to be ‘aborted’ today to prove your point?

“I’ve noticed that everybody that is for abortion has already been born.”Ronald Reagan

Abortion is not the right of choice. It is the ill-conceived privilege to make mutiple bad choices, and then escape from the consequences of those choices by denying the right of the baby to make any choices at all.

Pro-abortion is pro-choice? More like con-choice. Both con as a negative, and con as a big fat lie of being about real choice.

    I was doing this study project regarding abortion, and i came upon an interesting question from the people i interview. One of them asked me, what if the woman was raped and therefore got pregnant? Do they still have the right to abort that child (though innocent), as it was both unplanned and unwanted? From that female perspective, she said she couldn’t bear looking at the child and knowing that the rapist would look like the baby when grown up.

    I’d like to hear your insight regarding that.

  2. Joe Says:

    Sorry, i meant the baby would look like the rapist when grown up.

  3. Scott Thong Says:

    Hmm, we could look at it from these points of view:

    1) How would the baby feel about it?

    2) How would you feel if you were the girl?

    3) How would you feel if you were the baby?

    4) How about adoption services?

    From a Christian point of view, the ideal Christian would – with lots of God’s grace and strength – forgive the rapist and give unconditional love to the baby.

    For aren’t we humans God’s precious children, lovingly created by the Father, yet also the product of ‘rape’? Because of sin, our personalities look more like the Evil One than God – full of hate, selfishness, cruelty. Yet God loves us so much still, He is willing to wipe those thoughts away and even sacrifice Jesus (His Son who looks like Him) for our sakes.

  4. KC Says:

    I am really enjoying your words. My sister in law and I were just talking about this very issue tonight. We made most of the same points you have. As for the question of rape, God will give you the strength to make it though for he will not give you more than you can bear. Even though the rape itself was evil for conception to actually happen God saw fit for that child to be brought into the world for a reason. Now I hear you say ‘what about those that want children and have a miscarriage?’ He gives and takes away. It is not up to us to decide how long we live be it 5 months in the womb, 5 years, 20 years, or 80 years. That is all in Gods hands and has already been decided before we were ever thought of by our parents. We must always remember that God has a plan for everyone.

    this is soooo true!!! abortion is a hard thing to justify to others who dont just beleive “its wrong!”

  6. naome Says:

    The girl definately did not make a choice to have an abortion over not having sex or using contraceptions. She did not go “ooh its okay I can always abort the baby letter” She made a mistake, and neither she or the baby should be punished by the birth of the unwanted baby.

    No baby asked to be brought into the world just as no baby asked to be aborted. Just because the baby cant talk doesent mean we cant do anything about it.

    I wouldnt mind being aborted.

    Just because something would turn into a person someday doesnt mean we shold already treat it like one.

    More than 85% of abortions are performed before the 3rd month. At that time, the embryo is just a piece of tiny meat. A chicken would have more consciousness than it. If I was that piece of meat, I wouldnt mind being aborted.

    I do appreciate my life, I wouldnt want to die now, but that comes from the personality that I have deveoped over the years. The embryo doesnt have a personality. It wouldnt mind being aborted anymore than we consider it a waste when a guy masturbates and discards his semen.

    If abortion is an escape froma bad choice, its like giving someone a second chance. Its a good thing.

  7. naome Says:

    Oh please dont give me a religious argument. While I respect your beliefs it is also important for you to respect my disbelief in your religion.

  8. Scott Thong Says:

    I cater my arguments to the audience. The religious argument is for those with religion, and the non-religious argument for anyone in general.

    More than 85% of abortions are performed before the 3rd month. At that time, the embryo is just a piece of tiny meat. A chicken would have more consciousness than it. If I was that piece of meat, I wouldnt mind being aborted.

    A piece of meat? A piece of meat?

    Look at these photos!

    Can you say that these fetuses – already with readily recognizable arms, legs, ribs, head and face at less than 3 months old (11 weeks) – are mere pieces of meat?

    I do appreciate my life, I wouldnt want to die now, but that comes from the personality that I have deveoped over the years. The embryo doesnt have a personality.

    But how would you ever develop and cherish your personality if you had been aborted all those years ago? The issue here is that of potential – imagine if Einstein, Martin Luther King or your precious Obama had been aborted. We wouldn’t even miss them because we would never have seen what they would become.

    It wouldnt mind being aborted anymore than we consider it a waste when a guy masturbates and discards his semen.

    Once again, let me point out that sperm cannot live and grow even if put into a fertile womb. It will simply die, just like skin cells or whatever other body part you feel like arbitrarily citing. A fertilized ovum, however, can and will become a full fledged fetus, baby and finally adult if left alone. There is no similarity whatsoever.

    This is a STUPID COMPARISON and I would really appreciate it if people stopped flinging it around like they’re soooooo smart and original.

  9. naome Says:

    Yes I will not be able to cherish my personality if I was aborted, which is why its okay for me to be aborted when i was a piece of meat stuck to my mom.

    Forcing someone to have a child they dont want is not worth the chance of getting an Einstein, Martin Luther or Obama.

    Yeap I dont mind killing a fertilized ovum either. I just dont care if it almost certainly will become a person. Its not a person yet.

  10. naome Says:

    Oh and even if it is known that the mother will produce a really really great person, it is still the mothers choice to kill the 3 month old piece of meat inside her. Just because she can produce an Einstein doesnt mean she owes you an Einstein.

    Well this is very subjective, but the pictures dont do anything to me. We kill chickens everyday and I think thats more cruel than a mother to be aborting her piece of meat.

  11. naome Says:

    ohoh wait i just can resist– my stupid comparison is just as stupid as your stupid comparison of 3 month embryos with toddlers and old people and temporarily unconscios people in your comments in the other post.

  12. naome Says:

    okay im sorry i cant keep it in one post.

    I meant “cant” instead of “can” in the last comment.

    And the 3 questions about how the girl or the baby would feel…

    If the girl wants the abortion then obviously she should be allowed if we cared how she felt.

    And the 3 month old piece of meat is part of the girl. Or at least it isnt human enough to be protected by laws.

  13. Scott Thong Says:

    ohoh wait i just can resist– my stupid comparison is just as stupid as your stupid comparison of 3 month embryos with toddlers and old people and temporarily unconscios people in your comments in the other post.

    Why my comparison ineligible? A renowned pro-abortion advocate uses the same comparison.

    It basically goes: Embryos and fetuses can be killed because they have less brain activity than a chicken/rat/fish. Research apparently proves that already-born babies under 30 days old also have less brain activity than a chicken/rat/fish.

    Therefore, if similar standards are applied, then ‘post birth abortion’ should be legalized.

  14. Scott Thong Says:

    Well this is very subjective, but the pictures dont do anything to me. We kill chickens everyday and I think thats more cruel than a mother to be aborting her piece of meat.

    That one sentence completely explains why we can never see eye to eye on this subject.

  15. Scott Thong Says:

    Forcing someone to have a child they dont want is not worth the chance of getting an Einstein, Martin Luther or Obama.

    If the woman didn’t want the child, why was she screwing around during heer fertile period without using contraception in the first place? (This applies in 99% of all abortion cases where the woman was NOT raped, drunk, etc.)

    You liberals, always looking for ways to escape the consequences and responsibility for your actions – be it through abortion, welfare cheques, free healthcare, free housing, abolishing jail time, taking the money of hardworking folk and giving it to lazy bums…

  16. wits0 Says:

    Scott: “You liberals, always looking for ways to escape the consequences and responsibility for your actions ”

    That has become very obvious to any discerning observers everywhere over the decades. The ‘mores’ that will bring down America. It’s already started big time now with the likes of Hussein. Washington has become panderers to the ‘more’s in the name of freedom.

    I fully agree with Scott’s entire comment here.

  17. naome Says:

    common im not the pregnant one looking for abortions, im not being selfish, im looking out for the people who screwed up. although i really think thats a crappy argument. the law shouldnt stand in the way of people taking the easy way out.

    Well okay if 30 day old post birth babies really are less than chickens and rats then Id let the mommie have them killed if she wants to. Yes I honestly feel this way.

    I wouldnt like to watch the baby die but I think it will be no less bad than killing a chicken or rat or fish. Have you seen fish being skinned alive. (Thats not on point, just sharing)

    It doesnt matter if the woman is a real slut and doesnt care to use contraceptions. If she says she doesnt want the child she doesnt. And if you really want me to say why she had sex, its because she was in heat. Just because shes dumb doesnt mean abortions should be illegal.

    wits0 youre wayy out of my league i have no idea what ur talking about.

  18. Scott Thong Says:

    I’m looking out for others too. Only I look out for the 1.2 million babies aborted worldwide every single month, helpless individuals who have done NOTHING to deserve the fate they have been doomed to.

  19. naome Says:

    Im looking out for 1.2 real individuals. Youre just pissing about for 1.2 million pieces of meat a month.

  20. Scott Thong Says:

    Congratulations, you’ve finally shown the True Liberal trait of cussing. Now I’m just waiting for the True Liberal trait of personally insulting the opponent.

    Is it really so hard to use a condom?

  21. naome Says:

    oooooo are u inviting me to insult you? nahh I wouldnt do that. I would go out with you if you werent married though.

  22. wits0 Says:

    For especially naome : http://tinyurl.com/cb56vj

  23. naome Says:

    Scott Thong, I think we both agree that abortions are sometimes acceptable, by looking at the way you say most pro-life people arent looking for a blanket ban. So yeah the only thing were arguing about is when its appropriate to abort a baby.

    And I think the difference is down to whether or not teen pregnancies are valid excuses.

    Teens do dumb things. Especially with hormones around. An unwanted pregnancy isnt a well thought-out thing. Abortions will not make anyone more careless about using contraceptions.

    If you think teens should be made responsible for their unwanted pregnancies, then the law should slap them with a fine or a few weeks rehab or something for getting themselves pregnant irresponsibly, instead of forcing them to have the baby.

  24. Scott Thong Says:

    You have a point – according to Ann Coulter’s research (Here and here), single motherhood is a major factor in social problems. In fact, if single motherhood is factored out of the statistics, then the crime rate among blacks and whites becomes equal instead of blacks having a much higher crime rate!

    But shouldn’t we solve the root of the problem, not the symptoms? If families remained intact, if parents raised their children right, if schools taught self respect and restraint instead of promoting sex and handing out free condoms (that inevitably are forgotten about or break), then teen pregnancy wouldn’t be such a problem.

    But of course, abstinence education is laughed out of the funding and teen pregancy is even celebrated as ‘cool’!

  25. Scott Thong Says:

    I have to say this though naome – at least you’re logically consistent, on the issue to in-womb abortions extending to out-of-womb babies.

  26. Saika Says:

    To be frank, I would much rather be aborted before I was born than grow up knowing I’m unwanted and nothing more than a burden to my parents. How could anyone live a happy and fulfilling life knowing that they were nothing more than a mistake and thinking no one loves them? I consider myself lucky that I have a family that cares about me. And from the comments here it seems like most of you can’t even imagine the possibility of not having a parent who cares for you. Some children aren’t that lucky. Who, if given the chance, would choose to exist in an environment of hate rather than not to exist at all?

  27. Scott Thong Says:

    Okay… But how many aborted babies do you think would come to the same conclusion as you? For the answer to that, we can look at the billions of people who live a far harder life than us, facing poverty and hunger and rape and torture every day, yet cling to life because to them, even a hardscrabble life is better than death.

    (After all, you can always make the choice to ‘self-abort’ when you’re older.)

  28. Simon Thong Says:

    Soon after I was born, I was given away..UNWANTED coz I was believed to be a curse. However, my maternal grandma forced my parents to take me back. I grew up unhappy but the conversion of my parents to Christianity changed us all. Christ brought peace within the family, and love and joy.

    Similarly, unwanted children can find life to be meaningful, fulfilling and precious. But they must be ALIVE, not aborted, to find out that life can be good….
