Life starts at conception, and a baby is innocent and should not be killed while in the womb, as argued by Eden McCourt, who heads up Abortion Resistance, a (new) anti-abortion organisation in the UK.
Naomi Wolf, one of the most prolific feminists of the 21st century, has recently spoken out against abortion, which is wonderful to see, considering the very vocal pro-abortion sentiment permeating modern feminism.
What actually happens?
I’ve often wondered what actually happens in reality, when an abortion is performed.
Take a listen to the following testimony by Anthony Levatino, a doctor who no longer performs abortions.
My changed position
I used to be okay with abortion in general, but my position has changed in recent years, largely due to persuasive arguments made by my wife and mother. Here are a few.
- “Pro-choice” disregards the baby’s choice, making the position incoherent.
- Why is it acceptable (morally or otherwise) to kill the baby in the first trimester, but not in the third trimester?
- Either the baby has the genetic code of a human individual, or it doesn’t.
- Women (and men) must take responsibility for their actions. Everybody knows what happens when you put a Tweedledee into a Tweedledum.
- If a baby in the womb is part of the mother, then a patient on a ventilator is part of the hospital.
I have found the pro-abortion arguments to be littered with an absence of values and a degradation of morality. Furthermore, the normalisation of abortion, in my view, is a postmodern consequence of excessive rights; a culture of entitlement; narcissism; and shifting the blame.
Basically, too much liberalism.
Eden joined me for a superbly savage conversation. And yes, she deals with the usual red herrings like “what about rape?” and other exceptions that are not the rule.
The radio discussion to which she referred, can be found here.
