The Foolish and Futile Attempt to Argue the Pro Choice Position

The following is an excerpt from a letter to the editor published in The Star Ledger newspaper by one Martin Caroll of Watchung, NJ:
I would like to take this opportunity to apologize on behalf of those men who believe that they have the right to pontificate and legislate on this issue (abortion).  Female reproduction should be left for the women to decide; all men should recuse themselves from this topic.  As for the men who insist on preaching on this matter, please ignore the arrogant blowhards.  (
For some reason, this letter got under my skin a little.  The reason is that I did not ask for anyone, including Mr. Carroll, to apologize on my behalf for anything.  I also posted this, using Mr. Carroll as an example, to show the foolishness and illogical babbling and hypocrisy of the argument for abortion.  This should be no surprise. 
The tongue of the wise uses knowledge rightly, But the mouth of fools pours forth foolishness.  Proverbs 15:2 NKJV
And foolishness it is.  This man is commenting on a subject by saying that no man has a right to comment on it.  I wonder if he sees the problems with his own logic?  He says that men have no right to speak on a decision made by a woman regarding her body, yet he is presumptuous enough to apologize on behalf of someone who more than likely does not want or need one.  Considering Mr. Carroll is speaking on this subject, does that make him an arrogant blowhard as well?  I am sorry to pick on this one person.  He is not alone in the utter foolishness of those who try to argue in favor of sin.  It always leads to this kind of twisted logic and hypocrisy.  He is doing exactly what he says no man has a right to do.  This exposes his hypocrisy because it is not that he does not want men to speak out, it is that he only wants those who speak out who agree with his pro-choice opinion. 

Again, he is not alone.  Another ironic twist in this is that I found this post through Facebook.  That is not ironic, but the person who "liked" it is.  The person who shared this article on Facebook is heavily involved in anti-bullying efforts in our schools.  I just do not get it.  I just do not understand how someone can be against picking on children so much that she is for passing laws and decreeing punishments for doing so, but yet wants that same legislature to pass and protect laws giving her the right to slaughter her unborn child.  Apparently hurting someone's feelings is worse then ripping them apart limb from limb?  Apparently, children must be protected unless of course they are an inconvenience to others.  Quite honestly, the only logical way that kind of belief system can work out is if that belief system is steeped in selfishness.  Actually, it is more than that, it is selfishness to the point where self is god. 

But, then again, is that not the core of the pro choice position? Aborting a baby is the epitome of selfishness.  It is also the epitome of making oneself to be god by saying only you have the choice if that baby lives or dies.  It is saying to a child invited into a womb by virtue of having intercourse that he or she is not welcome there.  It is saying that whatever inconvenience you may go through over the next several months is not worth the life of a child.  It is saying that your ability to have a good time is more important then the right of your child to even live.  Did not almost everyone hate Casey Anthony for supposedly killing her own child because it interfered with her ability to have a good time?  How is abortion for convenience any less a hateful act?  In fact, you can even make the argument that if Casey Anthony did kill her own daughter, at least she did it by her own hands and to a child she knew.  With abortion, a woman does not even see the child she killed and that child is not even killed by her own hands.  Abortion is murder, it takes the life of an unborn innocent child, and it is always for selfish reasons.  Whether it be convenience, health, or because the child is the product of abuse, it is always for the sake of the mother.  We live in a society where we have legalized choosing to kill one's child so long as that child is not born. 

Some like to make the argument that what is killed is the "product of conception" and that the child is just a clump of cells.  Some make the argument that what is growing inside a woman is not sentient and does not feel or perceive pain.  Even if that were true, does that make it right?  Are we really saying that if a person does not feel pain it is alright to tear that person apart limb from limb?  Then again, it is not true.  Science has proven that what is killed is a growing human person.  That is why pro choice advocates fight tooth and nail against laws requiring the mother to see an ultrasound before the abortion happens.  If she were just removing an amorphous clump of cells or some meaningless thing called the products of conception" there would be no harm.  In fact, if anything, it would comfort the mother in her abortion because she would see first hand that she was only removing some formless thing from her womb.  That is not the case, though, what that mother would actually see is a growing baby.  She would have to look upon the young life she is about to slaughter.  She would have to see that what she is doing is killing a person. To say you are not killing a person when a baby is aborted is laughably ignorant. 

Getting back to Mr. Carroll, he also said that men should have no place in deciding women's reproductive issues.  That is a common argument.  Apparently, not being a woman I have no say in the matter.  Frankly, I do not care what a woman does with her body.  It is not my business.  It is also not my place to determine a woman's reproductive issues.  I do not believe I or anyone else should tell a woman if or when or what precautions to take when having intercourse.  That said, when she does make the choice, pregnancy is a possibility.  I am not fighting against a woman's right to have or not to have sex, but I am fighting for the right for the unborn baby to live.  Apparently, only a pregnant woman should be allowed to determine the right of her unborn child to exist.  That sounds a bit like a conflict of interest to me.  She is only speaking for herself, I am speaking for the baby.  I am defending the one who is defenseless and giving a voice to the one who can not speak.  I do not apologize for doing so.  Just as the woman she shared the article thinks that it is right for her to stand up for the rights of children everywhere to go to school and not be unduly harassed, I am standing up for the rights of unborn children to not be ripped limb from limb, burned alive chemically, or have their brains sucked out of their heads.  We live in a nation that prides itself on defending the rights of those who can not, To say I can not speak on the matter is laughable.  To say that no one is allowed to defend helpless babies is tyrannically barbaric. 

Abortion is the height of selfishness and the most brutal legal act one can do.  To think that we allow helpless defenseless babies to be killed at the will of the mother makes me shudder.  What will God to a nation that allows such a thing?  Just because God has given us space to repent of this national sin, does not mean that judgement is not coming.  A day will come when the period of grace will end and judgement will begin.  I wonder of the pro-choice people even understand what that means.  I wonder how they will answer God when they stand before Him unrepentant.  I wonder how they can possibly defend themselves.  Abortion is murder, abortion is brutal, abortion is barbaric, abortion is sin, and lest one repents, abortion will be judged. 

I urge you, if you stand for the pro-choice movement, repent now before it is too late.  If you are thinking of having an abortion, I urge you to change your mind.  If you have had one, I urge you to turn to Jesus.  The fact is that as filthy, wicked, abominable, and selfish a sin as abortion is, Jesus even died for that sin.  Should you turn to Jesus, Jesus will cleanse you of that unrighteousness and you will be separated from that sin as far as the east is from the west.  If you turn to Jesus, you will be saved, even if you performed, had, or advocated for abortions.  Someday you will face Jesus, that day He will either be your Savior or your Judge.  Each minute of each day is time God as given you to repent.  Use this time wisely and take the lesson of one named Jezebel who lived a long time ago.  
And I gave her time to repent of her sexual immorality, and she did not repent. Indeed I will cast her into a sickbed, and those who commit adultery with her into great tribulation, unless they repent of their deeds.  Revelation 2:21-22 NKJV
