5 Common Pro-choice Arguments Refuted

We have all argued with a pro-choicer or at least witnessed an argument. Abortion advocates have been spoon fed the same easily refutable lies and spit them up over and over like intellectual infants, futile in their thinking.

“My body, my choice.” Saying “my body, my choice” is like saying “my house, my rules.” Just because it is your house, so to speak, it does not mean you have the right to kill anyone in it. If a friend leaves a baby in your home, you can’t snuff out its life. The same goes for the person living in your womb. Besides, it is not your body. Unless, that is, all pregnant women are scientific phenomenons with two sets of DNA, four legs, and four arms. Pregnant women aren’t aliens.

“It doesn’t have rights\isn’t a person.” Scientifically speaking, an un-born child meets all the criteria for life. All life forms have sense changes in their surroundings and respond to those changes, have a method for extracting energy from their surroundings and converting it to energy that sustains them, contain Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA), and all life forms reproduce (not only referring to sexually or asexually but also meaning cellularly).

“No uterus no opinion!” One does not need to have children or be able to carry a child to tell others not murder theirs. Morality and truth does not change based on the anatomy of whoever is presenting it. Side note; there is no other subject upon which a man is told that he cannot share an opinion with a woman because he is not a woman. In fact, many OBGYNs are men. I’m pretty sure women appreciate their opinion. This is like telling a woman she can’t have an opinion about rape because she’s not a man. The supposition itself is sexist.

“Outlawing abortion is just a way to control women.” If limiting abortion was about controlling and asserting dominance over a woman, wouldn’t there be unique restrictions and laws that only apply to women, such as driving, voting, owning property, which medical procedures (that don’t end a life) she is able to obtain? Men aren’t allowed to kill people, either. “Don’t kill people” is a law that should be gender-inclusive. If you want females to be autonomous over their bodies, start with not killing little girls int he womb.

“We care about females and want to keep them safe!” If you truly cared about females you wouldn’t be murdering girls in the womb; if you truly cared you wouldn’t be advocating for the murder of their babies.

A 2011 study published in the British Journal of Psychiatry states:

“34% more likely to develop an anxiety disorder, 37% more likely to experience depression, 110% more likely to abuse alcohol, 155% more likely to commit suicide, 220% more likely to abuse marijuana. The study found that 10 percent of these issues could be linked to the woman’s abortion.” The same study also found: “Women who had undergone an abortion experienced an 81% increased risk of mental health problems, and nearly 10% of the incidence of mental health problems was shown to be attributable to abortion. The strongest subgroup estimates of increased risk occurred when abortion was compared with term pregnancy and when the outcomes pertained to substance use and suicidal behaviour.”

Abortion is not pro-woman. Abortion is not pro-life. Abortion is not the best option and should not be considered an option for caring for the disabled, poor, or disadvantage. Eradicating people is not providing care. Being homicidal is not being compassionate.

Might we all more carefully consider the words of Christ, who brought children to be blessed, and not to be murdered.

“People were bringing little children to Jesus for him to place his hands on them, but the disciples rebuked them. 14 When Jesus saw this, he was indignant. He said to them, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. 15 Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.” 16 And he took the children in his arms, placed his hands on them and blessed them.” Mark 10: 13-16 NIV.
