Opponents of choise use religion, not fact

Posted8/13/2019 1:00 AM

It boggles the mind that writers like Michael Ellegood and other anti-choice fanatics continue to assign human qualities to what amounts to a clump of cells in a woman's body. I strongly encourage you to invest in a dictionary to see that your use of "baby" is utterly incorrect:

"noun 1.a very young child, especially one newly or recently born; "his wife's just had a baby"; synonyms: infant, newborn, child, tot, little one; More"


Most of the legally terminated pregnancies are of embryos, not babies.

Because the Catholic church defines it as a baby does not make it one.

Have your beliefs if you wish, but realize that they are rooted in your religion, and you have no right or invitation to impose them on anyone else. Maybe the church should worry about ridding its own closet of demons and caring for those that already exist in the world instead of trying to impose its archaic thinking on others. Instead of protesting a woman's legal right to terminate an unwanted pregnancy, why don't you volunteer at a food bank or homeless shelter or adopt a child?
