Does a fetus have the right to live? This is the big question when dealing with policy on the life issue. If you stand with the pro-abort community you would obviously say no. If you stand with the pro-life community you would tend to say yes… or would you?
A trend that happens among pro-lifers is the addition of these words into their vocabulary, “I am pro-life with exceptions.”
Most agree on the conservative side of the fence that life has value, that every person has the right to live, and that abortion is the greatest offence towards an individual in the womb.
However, many actively standing with the preborn are also saying that they have exceptions for such things as rape, incest, health of the mother, etc.
Why is this a big deal?
In an article that I recently read by a pro-death advocate, I realized why this is not only a huge insult to the pro-life effort but also a way to advance our oppositions agenda. How could having exceptions for such emotional cases such as rape, be a promotion towards the abortion industry?
It’s simple, the abortion supporters love pro-lifers that have exceptions to their moral compass. These exceptions tells them that you are willing to negotiate the lives of certain children depending on their conception circumstances.
What may seem like a good solid stance for a life advocate, now tells the opposition that you can say you are “pro-life” but there is a pocket of compromises you are willing to use, if a child’s circumstances fits into that criteria.
The writer states, “By compromising their ‘right to life’ in order to accommodate a women’s rights, they inadvertently acknowledge that women’s rights are more important than the ‘right to life’ of the fetus.”
While having exceptions to your pro-life stance may seem like a good place to plant your feet, you in turn are increasing the efforts of abortion and forming a stronger platform for them to continue butchering babies on the pretense that it’s a women’s right.
They love people with exceptions. She states, “They are our biggest advocates for abortion.”
If you are currently a pro-lifer, I encourage to take an all or nothing stance. No child’s life should be negotiated or compromised because of the circumstances involved in their conception. If we believe that every person has the right to live, then that means you cannot support the allowance of abortion in some instances.
Your compromise has to stop and you have to take a stronger stance against the killing of children in order to make a difference in the lives of the pre-born. If not, this writer feels you may as well crawl over the fence and stand on the side of the abortion advocates and hold a pro-choice sign.
In Indiana we have many who say they are pro-life and many who compromise. I encourage you to re-evaluate your point of view on this issue and find the strongest position you can possibly take, and then stand there.
