Its great to see than a fellow liberal can follow the logic behind the gun-owner creed.
And thank goodness that you were able to draw this parallel for the Y!A masses and get the attention it deserves.
For as long as society alienates the teenage mother, and for as long as the religious institution relies on abstinence-only education: then the youth of america will suffer. If you eliminate the option of a safe, humane, and legal abortion: dumpsters will fill with the bastard children of the youth who fear social persecution. The Black Market will profit from the nieve and desperate youth who are guilty of nothing more than human err. By teaching kids about safe sex (condoms! not abstinence!), by giving single mothers more options (birth control without church control!), and by allowing the unexpected to have a remedy (plan B), hell- even by reforming the adoption system and welfare system: the number of abortions would decrease, and that market would shrink.
With scientific evidence supporting that conscious life does not begin for some time, and that abortions (early-term) can be safe and humane... why are we still fighting this?
Science proved to us that the garden of eden never existed. Furthermore, modern science did not come about until ages and ages after the biblical texts. Yet there are still those masses, afraid of truth and change, who chose to deny reality in order to maintain control of their society. Same goes for sex education, abortion, stem cell research, patriarchy, homosexuality, you name it.
Pro-lifers are in denial of scientific evidence and realism/logic because it threatens their existing social structure. Therefore, they will ban or deny the truth.
Those who have concern for the well-being of their society can be pro-life, but you are correct: they will have their minds on the real solutions and not real delusion.
