I answered this offline in a document, so there may be things I’ve missed in the thread; none the less:
1 Others have made the point that there’s a difference between a man on death row who’s been duly convicted by a jury of his peers and a baby in the womb which couldn’t have committed a crime. The difference is between innocent life and not innocent. The abortion crowd makes it out to be hypocrisy (when in fact supporting abortion while opposing the death penalty or even the killing of animals is the real hypocrisy) with lawyer-talking points. For myself, I used to support the death penalty, but now I shy away from it because the ultimate Christian goal is to see as many souls saved from damnation as possible (although ultimately, God gives everyone all the chance they need; and He’s glad to do so, because He doesn’t want them to go to hell, either), and life without parole at least gives them that chance. I remember 'Nutjob saying that he opposes the death penalty on the grounds of not being 100% sure of death-worthy guilt in 100% of death penalty cases, and this too deserves to be considered.
2 Now this is hyperbole. But to answer the point and speaking personally, by and large, I don’t blame the women; they’ve been sold a blob-of-tissue bill of goods by the abortion industry and activists.
3 First of all, I oppose it on moral grounds. Kids shouldn’t be taught how to get away with fornication; they should be taught not to do it, and provided with an environment which encourages that. And abstinance-based sex ed has a very good track record; in recent times, as well as the past.
4 I utterly reject the notion that abortion is a constitutional right (“no person shall,” among other things, “be deprived of LIFE, liberty, or property without due process of law,” and death without a criminal conviction doesn’t fit). Just because some U.S.S.C. justices said so in Roe v Wade (the U.S.S.C. also gave us Dread Scott, the Obama(don’t)care fine (by claiming falsely that it wasn’t a fine), and any number of other bad decisions) doesn’t make it so.
5 Maybe if they didn’t have sexual intercourse, they wouldn’t get pregnant…
6 See item 5.
7 Sorry, but this is a childish argument. It is never paramount to buy people stuff to deter them from doing the wrong thing. By doing so, one is letting people hold the government coffers hostage to their behavior. And as a side note, social(ist) programs that make people dependent on the government leads to autocracies which result in a lot more premature deaths than just the unborn.
8 When it comes to keeping the unborn from being murdered, you better believe I’m all for telling people what to do; the same as for murder outside the womb, or rape, robbery, or any other crime.
9 Can’t say that I do, but I’m confident someone’s done a study on it. Anyway, common sense will tell you that it’s a lot easier to leave someone in the lurch with a kid if they’re cohabiting, than if they’re married.
10 Your turn for evidence.
11 Using access to contraception outside of marriage does (goes for the guy as well as the girl).
12 How do the times change morality?
13 No, but there are Democrats in government (including some leadership positions, past and present (including Obama)) who have supported this very thing.
14 Call it what you will; as I said above, there are powerful Dems supporting it, and they’re doing so as part of the abortion mentality.
1 How does one compromise with evil?
2 No child who has been conceived in rape should be forced to DIE. It’s not their fault that their father was a scumbag. And women who abort their rape babies do not feel the better for it; it just compounds the trauma.
