Pro-abortion Argument #4

If you don’t like abortion, don’t get one. Answer: That is like saying “if you don’t like sex trafficking, don’t sex traffic”. To equate abortion or sex trafficking with a simple preference is to deny the humanity victim being trafficked or killed. Abortion equates to an act of homicide; one person killing another person. Therefore we cannot simply refrain from active participation; we must actively advocate for the abolition of such an act.

Pro-abortion Argument #3

A fetus is just a potential life. Answer: A sperm or an ovum are potential lives, once united, they become a unique human life. Calling a fetus a potential life is like calling a carrot in the ground, a potential carrot. The carrot cannot suddenly become an artichoke just like a fetus cannot suddenly become an ostrich. A human fetus is just that, human.

Pro-abortion Argument #2

We need to minimize the “need” for abortion, not outlaw it. Answer: The problem with this argument is that it is impossible to establish a “need” to kill an innocent human person. Categorizing homicide as something needed is tantamount to eugenics. If we embrace this attitude then we concede that abortion is sometimes a necessary evil. Abortion is NEVER a necessary evil; it is just plain evil.

Pro-abortion Argument #8- A fetus is just a clump of cells

Pro-abortion Argument #8- A fetus is just a clump of cells. Answer: Ok let’s get this straight. Yes a fetus is a clump of cells, however you and I are also clumps of cells. In reality we are all clumps of cells in the different stages of development. In all stages of that development we are also human persons deserving of full protection.

Pro-abortion Argument #1 – Abortion must remain safe and legal so women don’t go to back alleys.

Pro-abortion Argument #1- Abortion must remain safe and legal so women don’t go to back alleys.  Answer: First, abortion is never “safe” for the child who is being killed.  Second, you don’t legalize a violent act just so the persons committing that act are “safe” in doing so. Should we then create “safe” rape clinics to people don’t commit that act in a back alley? Abortion is an act of violence against a human being; it is never safe and certainly should not be legal.
