Pro Choice is Pro Life

30 08 2008

Its very funny to talk to people about politics.  Most of the time I get the impression that it is the party that they are rooting for that tells them what to believe.  Maybe when they first call themselves a Democrat or Republican they know what they believe (maybe).  But over time people stop thinking for themselves and just believe what their party says…no questions asked.  That is scary.  I think it is important to objectively question what you believe.  Asking yourself the question “Why do I believe what I believe?”  and a big one, “Who told me what to think?”.  The reason I have a strong relationship with Christ is because I ask these questions to myself.

I say that to say this:

I asked myself the question “Why am I for (pro) life?”  I’m going to try and sum this up in a few statements.

Pro Choice is not Pro Choice.  Sure the woman can choose…but the little human inside her can’t.  At conception there is life…and if you don’t believe that, at least agree that there is potential for life.

For pro choice to be pro choice both the woman and the child should have the right to choose.  If someone is for the option to choose, let’s let everyone choose.

Pro choice is pro life.  If you want to give everyone the right to choose whether they live or die you have to let them live first.

If you are pro choice then you are for giving someone the right to choose.  If that is what you believe then its not just the woman that you want to give the right to…its also the baby that should have the right to choose.

This all seems to make sense to me.  What do you think?

Here is a great quote from a song called “Loves Not” by Mars ill (one of my favorite groups)

Love’s not caught in mug shots or seen in drug spots
Love’s not sex or who you do next Love’s not
Road rage, porno pages in the eyes of a racist
Loves not whoring and love’s not abortion
Of course then love doesn’t bomb clinics to make it finish
