No, I simply think "hey, look at this picture of a dead baby" isn't a good enough reason to oppose abortion; just as looking at pictures of
life-saving surgeries isn't a good reason to "oppose open heart surgery" -- I mean, have you seen it? It's gross. What kind of argument is "Hey,
look at this disgusting picture?"
I think you're missing the point. This is a graphic video of a surgery, we can see that, and albeit it may have a lot of blood and seem gory, we
know what this is is and their are no moral implications to it for most people. However, Abortion on the other hand is deliberately kept sanitized by
languaging us into using medical terms rather than the language of the day, for example:
A woman who is looking forward to the birth of her child and suffers a mis-carriage, will say she lost the "baby". She says this because she has no
shame no guilt and was not something she did intentionally so she can give the infant its due respect as a human being and identify it as "her baby"
I woman who would opt for an abortion, says she got rid of the fetus. She aborted the fetus, she terminated the "thing" she "took care of it".
She exercised her "right" to choose, its execution was painful and not swift enough in most cases.
The same thing happens when we witness an execution, but when we watch a person die by accident or even his own hand, it isn't near as difficult to
watch. Watching a state sanctioned execution even of a guilty man, is very hard to do. Watching the execution of the innocent and defenseless whose
voice has no advocate is why you are trying to make this utterly fallacious point regarding your conscience bothering you when you see an abortion
video. Watching an abortion video needs no extra dialogue as you say should be put forth.
Abortion is a tragic decision for one to make, it is when I see threads like this one and many others here that attempt to make the tragedy of
abortion, a walk in the park without guilt, remorse, shame, or responsibility. This are the times we live in and how mis-guided debased and depraved
we have become and the twisted rationale we use to justify our actions as if Character, Integrity and accountability were values we think we are
about. People are disgusting, and after seeing another one of the latest Bible bashing orgies by atheist zealot budski, I am staring to feel like
reading the stuff on this site, can get pretty depressing physically nauseating. I feel like I don't even recognise the world anymore. Maybe Iv'e
out grown it, or maybe I am out of touch with it.
I sure miss the days when a man would die for a woman, a woman would kill for her child, I didn't have to hear about victims of Bible throat and all
those shoving them seem to never run into me, I have never met anyone doing that I don't think saying the word God Bless you is an assault on
someones sensitivites and I sure don't like gays shoving their lifestyle down our kids throats saying it is to teach tolerance. I wanted to give
them a piece of my mind at the budski thread, but what would be the point. I see right through this threads real intention and I just wonder if you
can watch this video and think it makes a logical argument comparing one graphic video of say a knee surgery and suggesting its graphic nature would
have anyting to do with why it would be a "good reason" to oppise knee surgery when you need it. I mean considering the fact their is something a
little more at stake here then say an anterior cruciate behind your knee cap. This is a human life being taken and knowing how people like you want
to make it easier to sanitize such a thing, you stand as a testimony of how far from humanity to barbarism we have shifted.
the baby would trade their feelings for your witnessing his execution
