This is the generation that will abolish abortion

Is Abortion is a Women’s Issue, Should MenStay Out of It?

I often get e-mails and messages telling me that I should stay out of the ‘abortion issue’ because I’m a man.  I’ve been told that I have no business getting involved since I can never get pregnant.  Some even go so far as to tell me that, if men could get pregnant, we would make abortion a sacrament.

The problem with this argument is that it’s meant to detract from the key issue of personhood.  Most arguments you will hear from the pro-abortion side are simply rabbit trails meant to steer clear of personhood, the heart of what we are fighting for.

The first mistake is referring to it as the ‘abortion issue.’  While abortion is the largest part of the personhood fight, it is still just one part of the culture of death and the destruction of personhood.

This is not just about women either; it’s about everyone involved including the mother, the father and the baby. To think that the mother of the child being killed is the only one who has any right to an opinion is absurd.   Unfortunately, this argument is often used by men who call themselves pro-life.  They say
that, while they are pro-life, they have no business telling a woman not to kill her child.

Imagine if the rest of the world had that same attitude during the Nazi Holocaust.  “We are not German so we have no right telling them not to kill other people.”  That is an insane argument, no one could agree with a statement like that.  To know about the killing of innocent human persons and do nothing about it because it was ‘none of your business?’ How absurd.

Right now it’s extremely popular to stand up and be a voice for Darfur.  Should we tell people to mind their own business because we’re not from there and therefore have no right to an opinion?  Or should we not be worried about the blatant human rights violations going on in China simply because we are not Chinese?

Edmund Burke said, “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.”  The evil of killing children has triumphed in America for over 35 years now.  This triumph has been fueled by the apathy and denial of this generation.

Have you noticed how popular superhero movies are right now?  We love to see Spiderman or Batman take out the bad guys as we cheer them on from the sidelines.  We teach our kids that crime doesn’t pay and make heroes out of those that fight against evil.  I wonder what kind of lesson we teach them when we ourselves ignore evil because it’s ‘none of our business?’

We know what is happening in abortion mills and doctors’ offices every day.  We know that little baby boys and girls are being destroyed in the name of choice as we turn a blind eye.  Some people are waiting
for the politicians to step up, as if they are going to be like Superman and swoop down to rescue the children right before the doctor’s suction machine destroys them.

Well, as a father, I refuse to wait for some superhero or politician to teach my child a lesson about what is right and wrong.  I refuse to tell my kids that they should take a stand against evil and fight for justice while I sit by and ignore the genocide that is killing one fourth of their generation.

As a man, as a father, and as a human I will not stay out of the ‘abortion issue.’  As human persons we cannot look at abortion simply as a women’s issue. We must see it for what it is: the killing of innocent human persons. We should not get involved because we are men or women, but because we are human and it is our fellow human persons who are facing genocide.

    Something tells me you have a fundamental misunderstanding when it comes to the abortion debate. Despite what you might think, since you (and all biological men) will most likely not ever be in a situation where you will be forced to carry a baby, give birth, and raise it, I don’t really think you understand what you’re saying.

    In a situation where a woman is pregnant and the man decides he wants to be part of her kid’s life, then they can discuss it like adults. Here’s the thing though: no matter how adamant he is about her carrying to term, if she doesn’t want to, he cannot make her. It is not his body. It is not the fetus’s body. Women’s bodies belong to nobody but women. You have absolutely no right to say “Since that fetus is genetically half mine I should be allowed to /tell/ you that you must carry a fetus for nine months, go through grueling labor, raise the baby, and suffer emotional, physical, and financial damage.” That’s ridiculous, and if you don’t understand that, then I don’t know what to tell you.

    Some people are so ridiculous, I swear. Abortion is NOT a mens’ issue. Men are certainly allowed to have an opinion on the matter, since this is the US and we have that right, but you shouldn’t be surprised when people get upset and call you out on her asshole-like behavior.
