Over the last few weeks, I have heard quite a few terrible arguments with all of the talk surrounding abortion in our culture. These bad arguments include:
- It’s a women’s right to choose.
- Abortion should be legal if the unborn is disabled.
- Abortion should be legal if the unborn isn’t thinking.
- Abortion is legal.
- The fetus isn’t a child.
- The unborn isn’t a human being.
- The fetus doesn’t have a social security number.
- The fetus can’t apply for a driver’s license.
- Making abortion illegal will cause abortions to become more dangerout.
- Men can’t talk about abortion.
- Would you save 1,000 embryos or a child from a burning clinic?
- Pro-life people don’t do anything to support single mothers.
It is amazing that people continue to discuss certain issues without addressing the most important questions. So, this week I address these bad arguments in order to show how to respond in truth and grace and get back to what is important.
