A guy that Stephan is friends with, after Sandy Hook, said “why are we upset about kids dying when babies are being murdered every day by abortion”
I unfriended him and Stephan hasn’t really been all that close to him since.
As sad as this may sound I’m honestly not surprised at this. Anti-choicers will use any tragedy to step on to make themselves look right, and it only keeps proving our point: they don’t care about the already born.
I like how they didn’t give an answer but just ran from the question. Relating two different instances of the murder of millions of human beings hardly seems like using anything…besides logic.
Even though the loss of human life by abortion dwarfs the holocaust serveral times over? So sad.
I’m not saying abortion isn’t horrific and awful and the number of aborted babies is far too great, BUT.
1. There isn’t an evil dictator with an army that is breaking into people’s homes, kidnapping women, and forcing them to have abortions.
2. The ways people (grown people, with fully developed pain receptors) died in concentration camps are not really comparable to abortion at all.
As a side note, there recently was a guest speaker at my church who compared Margaret Sanger to Hitler, and all I could think about is my mom’s Jewish friend who she has been trying to witness to for years, and given that her grandparents died in concentration camps, if she had been at church that morning she never would have come back.
Comparing anything to the holocaust is problematic, and I don’t think sheer number of deaths is a good enough reason to make the comparison.
Love you, Jeff, but we’re going to have to agree to disagree on this one.
You’re know Jordan, I’m a way I totally agree with you.
There are no bad guys kicking on the door and committing atrocities against our will. In this newer, greater evil, we murder our own children freely, because we want to. And we feel good about it. 50 million slaughtered, and counting, all for the exaltation of self.
I love you too, I just think that’s a greater evil.
Cressida, unlike many of the other Capitol-born rebels, is unfazed by the poor living conditions of District 13 and the devastation of the war, which makes her a good film director.
