When a Man Calls Abortion
"Killing the Unborn"
started with this facebook entry and an
unthinking man's response to it.
If only human males could get
pregnant, I doubt that they would use terminology like
"kill the unborn" when referring to abortion. A
thoughtless and cruel remark describing abortion and a
womans right to choose. If these men could
experience a critical thought moment that
would help make them understand the severe anguish a
woman will go through after finding out that some trivial
act like a "one night stand" or a brutal one
like "RAPE" resulted in fertilization.
Moreover, without the choice to obtain a legal, safe
abortion her dilemma can become a nightmare. (Even with
legal choice she will not be spared grief because of
living in a cold unthinking dogmatic society such as
ours.) I swear if I had a magic wand, I would thump it
upon any mans head who would audaciously twaddle
KILL THE UNBORN and give his
body a womb that has just started the process of
gestation after a one night stand with an
acquaintance or stranger (which men seem to enjoy
How to Defend Pro Choice Beliefs
Edited by Laura, Rob S, KnowItSome, Flickety and 26
1. Explain that even if abortion was illegal, it
would be impossible to enforce such laws. The
procedure used in performing abortions is identical
to the procedure used to investigate bad pap smears.
This is how abortions were covered up in the past.
2. Explain that abortion laws, such as the one
mentioned in Roe vs. Wade, were not about the moral
implications of abortion. They were about safety.
Modern Medicine and Sanitation practices are
relatively new medical concepts. Doctors were
literally using medical instruments to remove
infected tissue and then using the same equipment to
perform abortions. Women were dying more frequently
from physician performed abortions than from
self-induced abortions. The law overturned in Roe vs.
Wade did not outlaw abortions, only doctors
performing them. The Supreme Court ruled that the
reasoning behind the law was no longer valid (The law
was written before sanitary practices were
3. Try and find a middle ground with the other
person. If they say abortion is wrong in all cases,
try and find a case in which they agree it would not
be wrong. Cases of rape, incest, and cases in which a
birth of the child would kill the mother are often
good middle grounds.
Try and stretch the middle ground. If they agree that
cases of, say, rape, would be fine for an abortion,
ask if it would be okay if the woman received an
abortion if the fetus was not going to live after
birth, and she knew. Generally, just try and find
more ways in which they agree abortion should be
Continue to push different cases. The person with
whom you are debating should realize, after they've
agreed to a few scenarios in which abortion would be
allowed, that maybe abortion isn't as horrible -
after all, it deals with legal, emotional, and
physically traumatizing events. If they don't realize
this, mention it, but only after they've agreed on a
few cases in which abortion should be allowed. If
they think war can justify murder of adults as the
lesser of two evils then why not abortion?
4. Mention the mother's well-being. Ask if they
believe the birth of an unwanted child to a young,
promising woman would hinder her life. They will
agree that it will; it is obvious. They might
mention, at this point, that if the woman didn't want
to have a child, she shouldn't have had sex. Mention
cases of rape, leave it at that.
Ask about cases in which the mother could be
seriously harmed by the birth of the child, or even
killed. This is also something good to mention when
you are trying to find a middle ground with whomever
you are discussing abortion with - even the most
die-hard Pro Life supporter normally will agree that
abortion should be allowed in cases in which the
mother will be killed by giving birth.
5. Emphasize the magnitude of damage to children of
being born to parents who lack interest in their
parental responsibilities to such an extent that they
will harm the child physically, emotionally, or both
during its upbringing.
If they mention giving up the child for adoption,
simply counter with the fact that orphanages
worldwide are overflowing with too many children, and
it would very possibly be even more damaging to the
child to be left in an orphanages for eighteen years,
which happens to a very large portion of children
given up for adoption. Read some of the biographies
of people who experience this pain and how often
creates great distress in their adult life; Marilyn
Monroe is a good example.
Dropping a mention of the homeless rate is also a
good idea for defending abortion. There are too many
people in the world to force parents to have children
when they are nowhere near ready, or when there is
only a mother.
6. Ask them to consider the following question: if we
cannot decide at what point life actually begins, can
we decide at what point life ends? If they cannot
answer, talk about brain death, and how doctors
pronounce a patient dead when the brain stops sending
pulse signals to the body. Ask them if they know when
the brain actually begins to send signals. The answer
is eight weeks into pregnancy. Use this argument to
show that since life ends when the brain stops,
shouldn't life begin when the brain starts?
7. If they insist that life begins at fertilization,
point out that up to two weeks after fertilization,
that clump of cells could split up into identical
twins. Where did the second life come from?
8. If they insist that life begins at fertilization,
ask what they think about cloning? Assuming that
human cloning takes place - probably a matter of time
- no fertilization takes place at all, the new person
has the exact same genetic information as the
"donor", yet they are clearly distinct
9. Remind the person that pro-choice people are not
"pro-abortion" - they understand the
gravity of the decision and none of them think
abortion is all sunshine and puppies. But they also
realize that legal or not, there have always been
unwanted pregnancies and a demand for abortion, and
when abortion is not legal it does not stop
happening, it just becomes a lot more dangerous and
even deadly. Being pro-choice means wanting to keep
abortion safe, legal and rare.
Ask them to consider societies where abortion was
illegal such as Communist Romania and watch the film
4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days. The same rate of women
attempted to have an abortion, but maternal mortality
rates and child abandonment rates soared.
Be polite. Just because you disagree with the other
person's opinion on abortion, don't interrupt and
shout at them. Calmly explain your point, and allow
them to do the same.
Make sure your arguments can be supported by logic
and/or scientific evidence.
If you mention religion too much, be prepared as this
may turn in to a never-ending argument.
Pro-lifers use extremely graphic images usually of
late term abortions which are not a considerable
proportion of all abortions.
Don't expect to change anyone's mind in five minutes.
If you feel very strongly about this, then they
probably feel just as strongly about their own
opinions. Allow them time to think about it, and
never push too hard. Pushing will only cause the
other person to feel antagonized, and you will get
Understand that this is a very touchy issue for most
people, and that it can break friendships, and cause
grudges. Stay away from "hot button" issues
such as abortion if you feel it may cause a fight or
create a rift between two people.How to Defend Pro
