Abortion: "The pro-aborts have painted themselves into the same corner that the pro-slavery movement found itself in so many years ago."
"The reality of what is in the womb is no longer at issue. In essence, it is no longer an issue about what the baby is, but rather where the baby is. The argument is the personhood of the baby. The pro-aborts have painted themselves into the same corner that the pro-slavery movement found itself in so many years ago. As the argument went then, a slave really isn't a person. The argument was that there were two different "persons" in the U.S. Constitution. One for slaves, and one for everyone else. As ridiculous as that sounds today, it held water for many years, primarily by judicial fiat perpetrated by activist judges legislating from the bench rather than upholding the Constitution. An ironic parallel in history indeed. The pro-aborts are in the same place today. If ever you want to condone murder, simply redefine someone as a non-person. Viola! Problem solved! Reality, of course, is quite different and not subject to man-made legal definitions."
This is an exact quote of a post I ran across at a site called Acting Stupidly. They said they were quoting it from another blog. They did not name or link that blog or name the author.
