Abortion & the Golden Rule
Bluntly: Abortion enthusiasts all actually reject the concept of abortion. Obviously, they don’t realize this, or they’d have packed up their dissertations and curettes and gone home long ago.
The point is simple and clear: Not one of us human beings, if we’d had a voice in the womb, would have given our mother the right to abort us. Not a one. However poorly our subsequent days may have turned out (and we wouldn’t have known that in the womb), not one of us would want to have been cheated out of life’s dawn. We all want a crack at life. Death is hopeless. We’d all prefer to take a chance on life.
And when all humanity without exception comes to the same conclusion on anything, there is no foothold for argument. Accordingly, there’s no basis to argue for abortion.
Likewise, given this full agreement, it is inhuman to take from an upcoming human being the life we all claim for ourselves.
For those advocating abortion, there’s no pain in the premature ending of others’ lives. But their own? No way. That’s human nature. Universally. Not one of us, of any persuasion, would have chirped, “Okay, Mama, pull the plug.”
