-----Drove by----saw a coterie of protesters thrusting their ugly signs at the public---no doubt feeling very righteous in their anti choice cause. It baffles them that half of Americans don't agree with them----indignant with any opposition---asking: When does life begin? Are you in favor of murder? Even Obama stammered when quizzed in this fashion. (during the campaign--remember?)
My fury rises---I park my rig nearby and bicycle back---carrying pro choice info--I will answer their challenge.
What's wrong with this picture? It does not show proportionality---it needs a giant human thumb the size of the baby next to it to be accurate. But they are more than dishonest--they are fanatical and fundamentally mistaken.
4. Unrestrained reproduction will wreck our world. Overpopulation is the root cause of most of humanities' current problems. (global warming, hunger, resource depletion, deforestation, etc.)
Unrestrained reproduction overpopulated India, China, Pakistan, Indonesia, the Philipines and Mexico. Each attempts to export its surplus to first world nations. Thus, the Muslim world, the fundamentalist and Evangelical Christian world, and the Mormon world are leading humanity into catastrophe. They are the community equivalent of a crazy "cat lady" who lets her pets breed unlimitedly.
7. Abortion is a regretable but necessary backup solution to unwanted pregnancies. Unless it is safe and legal, it will be unsafe and illegal---imposing tremendous cruelties on women. Forcing the victim of a rape or incest to carry a child to term is a cruelty only religious fanatics would support. (as the Republican Party Platform advocates)
9. Though I didn't say this--I wish I had: Pro-life fanatics are guilty of what I call VALUE TRUMPING: Embracing one value (human embryo life)--declaring that it TRUMPS--(is-greater than )other values like: THE OVERALL GOOD OF THE HUMAN RACE OR THE ENVIRONMENT OR CONCERN FOR SPECIES BALANCE. A FERTILIZED EGG DOES NOT TRUMP HUMAN FREEDOM, DIGNITY NOR THE PROBLEM OF GRINDING POVERTY. (read the book ISHMAEL) The Quakers, for example, took the value of non violence and let it trump self protection--They whimpered to Benjamin Franklin in the French and Indian war to defend them.
