16.a) “I’m personally against abortion, but I’m still prochoice. Its a legal alternative, and we don’t have the right to keep it from anyone. Everyone’s free to believe what they want, but we shouldn’t try to impose it on others.”
In response to this statement we answer:
” Some people have the illusion that being personally opposed to abortion while believing others should be free to choose it is some kind of compromise between the proabortion and profile position. It isn’t. Pro choice people vote the same as pro abortion people. Both oppose legal protection for the innocent unborn. Both are willing for children to die by abortion and must take responsibility for the killing of those babies even if they do not participate directly.”
it is a matter of principle, regardless if you would do it or not. It is like the pro slavery and against slavery, yet some would argue that it is morally wrong, but they believed that those who owned slaves should have the right to do so. Does that change the fact that those individuals were tortured and abused? Did that contribute to the change in the laws? No. The reality is that when we acknowledge that something is morally wrong, we cannot simply think that it only applies for ourselves and our moral compass. The reality does not change, and the unborn continue to be killed in their mothers womb every day. I cannot say that something is wrong for me, yet sit and watch others do it because they think is morally right. I have to stand for what I think is right. We cannot compromise the truth, because it is not relative concept. This is what made the difference in the issues of slavery, and the holocaust in WWII.
