Lucia Abortive Arguments by Deranged Feminists

Looking at left blogs is really bad for my health. The other day I had a quick look at Spanblather's Linky Love, to find a link to abortion and the hypocrisy of the Catholic Church, the author of which is really "hearted" by Span. Ok, I thought, let's have a look as to what this supposed "hypocrisy" is.

It was just the same old tired argument that abortion ought to be legal because if it isn't legal, then women are going to do it anyway, and if they do it illegally it's more likely to be dangerous and therefore kill many more women than if it were legal. The Catholic Church is being hypocritical in opposing abortion, because they are supposed to be about protecting life - and look, women getting illegal abortions are dying! Doesn't the Catholic Church care?

It's the biggest load of crap ever.

Apply the same argument to organ harvesting. People are dying because they can't get organs. If we allow organ harvesting of the unwanted, then people won't die anymore (apart from the unwanted, but who cares about them). It will be safer for all concerned to make this process legal, because if it's legal, it's more likely to be safe and also successful. If we keep it illegal, people are going to do it anyway, and more people will probably die of the people we care about - those sick people who need organs.

What? The Catholic Church opposes this? Something about the sanctity of life and all - call them hypocrites. If they really cared about people, then they'd be all for the harvesting of organs from the unwanted, just like they'd be all for the abortion of the unwanted. Whatever happens, the unwanted are going to die anyway, so why not have some good come out of it all?

Why doesn't anybody think about the children? Oh, wait, they do. They don't want us to be able to smack our children to discipline them, but they are happy for us to kill them if we don't want them. Before they are big enough for anyone to care, of course.

the debate is really quite simple - Catholics understand that all life is sacred - use that as the starting point and then apply that principal to all bio-ethical arguements. We say we are anti-abortion because termination is killing a pre-born human.

The "pro-choice" group talk about the woman's righ to choose, but they never ever talk about the choice to life of the yet to be born human life. They don't talk about the sacredness of life, or even the term "abortion" but rather such fuzzy words as Termination of Pregnancy, choice.

Seeing a little girl in our church who was born at 23 weeks weighing about 520 grams and it is no hard to understand why abortion is so wrong on so many levels.

Of course the Catholic Church cares as do the Orthodox Church, the Coptic Church and the Conservative Protestant Churches they all care.

The trouble is the solutions they suggest, chastity and sanctity of marriage goes against the grain for those who belive fulfillment in life derives from hedonism and pleasing yourself.

Kiwi Ethics 101.
So, ah, let me get this straight, you're against animal experimentation on dogs, cats, flatworms, rat and chicken embryos etc, you're against whaling, and against hunting and fishing.

You're for the preservation of fragile habitats. You're vegetarian because meat is murder, you ride a bike to reduce your carbon footprint, you keep physically fit, you belong to PETA, WWF, ONE and Oxfam, you wear earnest coloured wrist bands, and you think dropping a lobster in boling water is violent. And you also say the suction and cuttelage of a 10-week old genetically unique human is a "basic human right".

If there's a non-sequitur in there the majoity can't see it!

The "you" you speak of describes the typical NZ Greenie. I now begin to understand why they also want to legalise drugs and prostitution.

Many of the points in my above post are quite commendable. The problem lies in the coherence of application. Greens and soft centred liberals don't extend the same high value they put on animal and ecological life to human life.

This leads to been against smacking violence but for abortion violence, been against whaling but for prostitution.
