Common Thread of the Left: We're killing babies So What...

ALL ANI­MALS ARE EQUAL BUT SOME ANI­MALS ARE MORE EQUAL THAN OTHERS

George Orwell: Ani­mal Farm 1945

Our new gov­ern­ment is founded upon exactly the oppo­site idea; its foun­da­tions are laid, its cor­ner– stone rests, upon the great truth that the negro is not equal to the white man; that slav­ery sub­or­di­na­tion to the supe­rior race is his nat­ural and nor­mal condition.

Alexan­der Stephens March 211861

One of the first argu­ments that gen­er­ally come out of the mouth of a per­son who sup­ports abor­tion when con­fronted by the argu­ment on inno­cent life is that you aren’t killing baby in abortion.

Not any­more. Mary Eliz­a­beth Williams has decided to go the other way here is the title or her Salon Piece

So what if abor­tion ends life?
I believe that life starts at con­cep­tion. And it’s never stopped me from being pro-​choice

Mary Kather­ine Ham notes the think­ing process:

This was the exact thought process that led me to the exact oppo­site posi­tion. I, too, noticed a dis­tinc­tion between how women approached an in-​utero child when they wanted the child and how they felt about it when the preg­nancy was unex­pected and unwanted. Log­i­cally, it made no sense to me that the mother’s dis­po­si­tion should change the bio­log­i­cal dis­po­si­tion of the baby. There­fore, it made no sense that it should change the ethics of the sit­u­a­tion. But Mary Eliz­a­beth Williams goes a whole dif­fer­ent direction

Mary Eliz­a­beth Williams doesn’t just go in a dif­fer­ent direc­tion she goes all Com­rade Napoleon on us

All life is not equal. That’s a dif­fi­cult thing for lib­er­als like me to talk about, lest we wind up look­ing like death-​panel-​loving, kill-​your-​grandma-​and-​your-​precious-​baby storm troop­ers. Yet a fetus can be a human life with­out hav­ing the same rights as the woman in whose body it resides. She’s the boss

Kat­rina Trinko calls asks the obvi­ous:

By this same logic, isn’t infan­ti­cide also fine and dandy? After all, if we’re talk­ing about auton­omy, kids aren’t exactly inde­pen­dent as soon as they are born. No infant can take care of them­selves. And even later on in child­hood, chil­dren rely heav­ily on the adults in their life to pro­vide shel­ter, food, and emo­tional sup­port. What about kids and adults who become dis­abled in life? What about quadriplegics?

Eliz­a­beth Scalia, mean­while is hor­ri­fied:

When ter­ror­ists flew jets into tall build­ings, they believed that those 3,000 lives were “worth sac­ri­fic­ing” for the fur­ther­ance of their sit­u­a­tion. When Nazis led peo­ple with dis­abil­i­ties into gas cham­bers, those lives were “worth sac­ri­fic­ing” for soci­ety. When Herod had all the male chil­dren killed Beth­le­hem, those lives were “worth sac­ri­fic­ing” for his ease of mind.

The util­i­tar­ian mind­set is a crys­talline bru­tal­ity of effi­ciency. If human beings of unknown or dubi­ous worth can­not con­tribute to the com­fort of a soci­ety, or the suc­cess of an endeavor or the hap­pi­ness of one’s life, they are swept aside and away.

I’m shocked none of these ladies men­tioned slav­ery, the ulti­mate util­i­tar­ian argu­ment, con­sider these words from Williams…

She under­stands that it saves lives not just in the most med­ically lit­eral way, but in the roads that women who have choice then get to go down, in the pos­si­bil­i­ties for them and for their families.

..and remem­ber the argu­ments in the past con­cern­ing the black man, and the red man and how their sub­or­di­na­tion allowed the supe­rior the more impor­tant to advance and achieve, to give them roads to go down and pos­si­bil­i­ties for them and their families.

And it also ignores some­thing else, the costs of abortion:

A recent study pub­lished by Great Britain’s Royal Col­lege of Psy­chi­a­trists (H/​T Alveda King Blog) includes data col­lected from 22 stud­ies, con­ducted over 14 years, involv­ing over 887,000 women, of which at least 166,831 had abor­tions. The results? Eighty-​one per­cent of women (81%) who have had abor­tions suf­fer an increased risk of severe men­tal health problems.

All these reac­tions have merit but they miss the real story of the Salon piece although Eliz­a­beth comes closest…

Were I a car­tog­ra­pher, I would has­ten to warn Ms. Williams against this route; I would mark the map, “Here be Monsters.”

Eliz­a­beth Eliz­a­beth Eliz­a­beth you are so close, being kind-​hearted you con­clude that Ms Williams is tak­ing her­self on a mon­strous route unknow­ingly, but observe her argu­ment care­fully. This is a place she has been for­ever, in fact an hon­est read­ing of her piece admits the pro-​abortion side has been there all along. The only rea­son she is mak­ing this state­ment in pub­lic is she believes it will advance her cause.

In short Ms. Williams is not tak­ing the route toward the mon­sters, she is the MON­STER and the mon­ster has decided it is strong enough to show true col­ors. By it being printed in a national mag­a­zine pub­licly it informs oth­ers that they can openly dis­cuss this topic with­out fear.

That begs the ques­tion why now? Well that’s a piece is for tomorrow.

ALL ANIMALS ARE EQUAL BUT SOME ANIMALS ARE MORE EQUAL THAN OTHERS

George Orwell: Animal Farm 1945

Our new government is founded upon exactly the opposite idea; its foundations are laid, its corner- stone rests, upon the great truth that the negro is not equal to the white man; that slavery subordination to the superior race is his natural and normal condition.

Alexander Stephens March 21, 1861

One of the first arguments that generally come out of the mouth of a person who supports abortion when confronted by the argument on innocent life is that you aren’t killing baby in abortion.

Not anymore. Mary Elizabeth Williams has decided to go the other way here is the title or her Salon Piece

 

So what if abortion ends life?
I believe that life starts at conception. And it’s never stopped me from being pro-choice

Mary Katherine Ham notes the thinking process:

This was the exact thought process that led me to the exact opposite position. I, too, noticed a distinction between how women approached an in-utero child when they wanted the child and how they felt about it when the pregnancy was unexpected and unwanted. Logically, it made no sense to me that the mother’s disposition should change the biological disposition of the baby. Therefore, it made no sense that it should change the ethics of the situation. But Mary Elizabeth Williams goes a whole different direction

Mary Elizabeth Williams doesn’t just go in a different direction she goes all Comrade Napoleon on us

All life is not equal. That’s a difficult thing for liberals like me to talk about, lest we wind up looking like death-panel-loving, kill-your-grandma-and-your-precious-baby storm troopers. Yet a fetus can be a human life without having the same rights as the woman in whose body it resides. She’s the boss

Katrina Trinko calls asks the obvious:

By this same logic, isn’t infanticide also fine and dandy? After all, if we’re talking about autonomy, kids aren’t exactly independent as soon as they are born. No infant can take care of themselves. And even later on in childhood, children rely heavily on the adults in their life to provide shelter, food, and emotional support. What about kids and adults who become disabled in life? What about quadriplegics?

Elizabeth Scalia, meanwhile is horrified:

When terrorists flew jets into tall buildings, they believed that those 3,000 lives were “worth sacrificing” for the furtherance of their situation. When Nazis led people with disabilities into gas chambers, those lives were “worth sacrificing” for society. When Herod had all the male children killed Bethlehem, those lives were “worth sacrificing” for his ease of mind.

The utilitarian mindset is a crystalline brutality of efficiency. If human beings of unknown or dubious worth cannot contribute to the comfort of a society, or the success of an endeavor or the happiness of one’s life, they are swept aside and away.

I’m shocked none of these ladies mentioned slavery, the ultimate utilitarian argument, consider these words from Williams…

She understands that it saves lives not just in the most medically literal way, but in the roads that women who have choice then get to go down, in the possibilities for them and for their families.

..and remember the arguments in the past concerning the black man, and the red man and how their subordination allowed the superior the more important to advance and achieve, to give them roads to go down and possibilities for them and their families.

And it also ignores something else, the costs of abortion:

A recent study published by Great Britain’s Royal College of Psychiatrists (H/T Alveda King Blog) includes data collected from 22 studies, conducted over 14 years, involving over 887,000 women, of which at least 166,831 had abortions.  The results? Eighty-one percent of women (81%) who have had abortions suffer an increased risk of severe mental health problems.

All these reactions have merit but they miss the real story of the Salon piece although Elizabeth comes closest…

Were I a cartographer, I would hasten to warn Ms. Williams against this route; I would mark the map, “Here be Monsters.”

Elizabeth Elizabeth Elizabeth you are so close, being kind-hearted you conclude that Ms Williams is taking herself on a monstrous route unknowingly, but observe her argument carefully. This is a place she has been forever, in fact an honest reading of her piece admits the pro-abortion side has been there all along. The only reason she is making this statement in public is she believes it will advance her cause.

In short Ms. Williams is not taking the route toward the monsters, she is the MONSTER and the monster has decided it is strong enough to show true colors. By it being printed in a national magazine publicly it informs others that they can openly discuss this topic without fear.

That begs the question why now? Well that’s a piece is for tomorrow.
