First, please let me start off by saying that I thoroughly enjoyed the read, and commend you on your bravery. It takes courage in this day and age to even discuss the subject of abortion, much less come out against it and do so publicly at that. I'd also like to add before going any further that I completely agree with the assertion that the moment a an ovum becomes a zygote a human life has been created.
What you and/or anyone else who is holding out hope of persuading anyone's view about this issue is that the people who are strongly in favor of abortion fall into two groups: 1) Those who profit from it; and 2) Mind-numb sheeple who lack the basic capacity to sustain an independent thought, much less invoke deductive reasoning/logic as a means of forming an opinion or belief.
These people do not think for themselves, and they've already handed over the keys to their minds to the wrong people, people (a generous use of the term) have already brainwashed them to the point that they'll never be anything more than useful idiots dependent upon the American welfare state for their very sustenance.
Since a human fetus contains DNA from both the mother and father, there is no valid scientific argument that the fetus constitutes any portion of "a woman's body". It is flawed argument to asset that a woman "has the right to choose what to do with her own body." Fine. I agree. What about the other, distinctly different body as confirmed by the presence of a set of DNA unique from any other and distinctly different from that of the mother? Why does it have no rights as to deciding whether it lives or dies? What if it's female? Shouldn't she get to "choose" whether or not she wishes to continue on with her life or end it before leaving the womb?
It a person is really pro-choice and intellectually honest, they would have no choice but to concur that the person growing inside of the mother is a unique and distinctly different human being, not an extension of the mother, and that that individual should be the one who gets to make the choice over whether he or she lives or dies. After all, if you're pro-choice, how could you be so and deny a person any say whatsoever in such an important decision - more so for the person being denied the choice than for anyone else involved, mother included.
If the people who support the heinous practice were capable of constructing and deconstructing sequential logic, this point would have long ago ended the debate and the barbarous practice. Sadly, they are for all intents and purposes zombies -- albeit zombies who merely figuratively eat human flesh as opposed to literally feed off of it. The doctors and abortion advocates at planned parenthood buy their food, their clothes, houses and cars with the blood money of murdered infants.
It matters not how valid, irrefutable or persuasive the argument, to a person whose brain is incapable of understanding the very concept of independent thought, there is no reaching them. We must simply hope that they practice what they preach and eventually abort enough of each other and their would-be offspring out of existence so that the remaining population is overwhelmingly in support of extending the right to life to all humans including the most vulnerable.
We'd still have to contend with the likes of Planned Parenthood, which don't doubt for one second that if it ever came down to it would stop at nothing to make villains out of those who support protecting and valuing every life created, while at the same time making themselves appear to be a victim of some sort or another. I have some ideas as to how they might go about doing this, but since we've not reached that point and may never actually see so much progress it would be prudent that I keep those ideas to myself, at least for the time being.
I would like to disclose that I sell prenatal health products such as pregnancy support belts
, breast pumps and prenatal vitamins. I do have a financial interest in more babies being born alive, however I've adhered to a pro-life view on this, the most controversial and taboo of all issues, since long before I had entered my current line of work.
