Anti-abortion Ad following Obama’s first presidential choices

I’m pro-abortion but I must admit that this is a brilliant ad. It’s the first time that I see the catholic movement opposing abortion not on the base of a religious principles, that are expression of individual sensitivity and shouldn’t therefore affect regulations, but on the ground of common interest.

In a secular, free society a woman’s right to choose abortion is more important than the religious views of others , even if they represent a majority. But is it more important than the right of the society to be benefitted by the man that fetus could potentially become?

 

Final Burp: This response to one of Obama’s first act as president is way more effective than the traditional dogmatic position of the Catholic Church.

One response to “Anti-abortion Ad following Obama’s first presidential choices

  1. Let’s be frank. No one is pro-abortion. Pro-choicers aren’t even pro-abortion, so I doubt anything that comes out of someone’s mouth following an introduction like that.

    That being said, no, I don’t think society has “rights to the benefits a man (or woman… jeez) could potentially bring to a society”

    Why? Because no one person owes society their life. Obama could have chosen to get into advertising, as an example. Is his right to choose more important than the right of the society to be benefitted by the man that fetus could potentially become?

    And don’t try and tell me it’s not related. You could easily flip the tables. Is a woman’s right to choose to keep a child more important than keeping the next Hitler from being born?

    What if Barack had been one of millions of spontaneous abortions/miscarriages? Died in a car accident? Enlisted and killed by a suicide bomber? There’s a million opportunities for the end or start of possibilities; potential. Some of these are a direct result of choice: the choice to have an abortion, the choice to drive a vehicle, the choice to enlist for your country. These are all human decisions with potentially permanent life-altering consequences. But we know that when we make them.

    The only reason this would stand to scrutiny is if you believed there was a god, with a plan for all of us. And if you have an abortion, you’re disrupting that plan – because every foetus has the potential to be either the embodiment of evil that will push the button that ends us, or the good that will save us all – but then how quickly it falls by the wayside that this omnipotent being KNOWS what choice a woman is going to make already. So it’s really irrelevant what you think about the potential human’s impact on society is going to be, because God already had this plan… and that potential impact wasn’t meant to happen. So it’s not really anyone’s place to speculate about what it could have been. Because, frankly, it didn’t. So it doesn’t matter.
