Politics

Governments have the ability to significantly affect the institution of abortion. We favor laws that prohibit abortion and respect the rights of the preborn. These posts consider the government’s role in the abortion conversation.

Person 1: I’m personally pro-life, but I’m politically pro-choice. Person 2 (our hero): I’m glad you don’t support abortion. I’d like to understand you better. Would you be willing to explain why you’re personally against abortion? Person 1: I don’t like the idea of the government forcibly preventing the women who want abortions from getting them. Person 2 (our hero): Neither do I. I wish it never came to that. I want everyone to reject abortion out of love and respect for the preborn. Person 1: I’m pro-choice because I’m liberal. Person 2 (our hero): Many liberals are pro-life. Social justice requires that we protect vulnerable members of our species, such as the poor, minorities, and the preborn. Person 1: If abortion is outlawed, women will die in unsafe illegal abortions. Person 2 (our hero): I’m concerned about this too. I value the mother and fetus equally. I’m working for a future where nobody performs or seeks an abortion, legal or illegal. Person 1: I’m pro-choice because I’m libertarian. Person 2 (our hero): Most libertarians think the government should prevent aggressive violence. Ron Paul and many others think that includes abortion. Person 1: If abortion is outlawed, women will die in unsafe, illegal abortions. Person 2 (our hero): I’m concerned about this too. Abortion is worse when the mother dies. But I’d say abortion is never safe, since I value the mother and fetus equally. Person 1: We shouldn’t tell women what to do. Person 2 (our hero): I agree that we should generally avoid restricting people’s freedom, but we should make exceptions to keep people from hurting each other. Person 1: Don’t impose your religious beliefs on me. Person 2 (our hero): I don’t want to violate your religious freedom. Would you be interested in having a non-religious discussion about abortion? Person 1: Abortion restrictions unfairly affect poor women who can’t afford to travel to another state. Person 2 (our hero): It’s true that poor women are affected differently. I think women and fetuses should be respected and protected regardless of income. Person 1: Abortion should be legal based on the separation of church and state. Person 2 (our hero): I support the separation of church and state too. Would you be interested in having a non-religious discussion about abortion?
