Comment: Why should...

(See in situ)


Why should...

...the baby be executed? He/she didn't commit the crime. How do you make up for the horror of a rape by adding the murder of another innocent?

If the mother gave birth to the unwanted baby and then killed him/her, would that be ok? No the personhood of the baby would outweigh the mother not wanting it to live. Now, of course you pro-choice folks have no qualms about this occurring before birth, rape or no rape, since you think the baby is just a parasite at that point and not a person. But what kind of a monster would you/I be if we did think the unborn was a person with the right to Life but still advocated for its murder in this situation? If someone is going to be consistently pro-Life, it shouldn't matter whether there was a rape or not: a person is a person, either way.

Please note: I'm not trying to convince pro-choicers to be pro-Life in this comment -- just pointing out what seems to me to be a truly consistent pro-Life position.
