"The only moral abortion is YOUR abortion"

I'm assuming you have heard the phrase "The only moral abortion is MY abortion"? It's a method that "pro-choicers" use to point out hypocrisy of the pro-life side. They hold up examples of preachers and other pro-lifers who have had or have sent their daughters in for abortions while maintaining that abortion is wrong "except in their particular and unique situation".

While I find the behavior of these so-called "pro-lifers" hypocritical, offensive, and quite sad, I also submit to you that the "pro-choice" side bears their own burden of hypocrisy, combined with a hefty dose of elitism and judgment.

You see, it's very popular today to proclaim "I believe that it is wrong to kill an unborn child, and I would not do it to my child. But, I think it's okay for other unborn children to be aborted if their mother so chooses, especially if the mother is young or poor or the child is deformed."

In other words "The only moral abortion is the abortion of YOUR child. Please, do your substandard kid a favor and end his miserable life before he is born."

It's important to understand that this "pro-choice" view is much more prevalent than the former "pro-life" view. Understand that there are disengenuous people on both sides and that none of them deserve respect. Consistency is the only truth.

"Life is full of misery, loneliness, and suffering - and it's all over much too soon." - Woody Allen (1935 - )

I had a friend who claimed she was pro-choice. She took her friend to get an abortion and she went on and on about how she was so good for supporting her friend's abortion and then she added, "but I could never have an abortion." Why? Is it because you see it as a baby? Your baby? Do you think abortions hurt women? Then why would you want your friend to get one?
