You are still confused about “moral authority”.
To imply morality you have to choose a set of standards.
Mine? Nope, I’m a flawed human being.
Yours? Nope, you can’t even figure out the proper use of your own anatomy.
The Government’s? You and I both agree, we don’t trust them.
That leaves only one other source of standards – The Creator of Life’s.
He says “Thou shalt not kill.”
And the first mention of eye for eye, tooth for tooth and life for life in the Bible is refering to the baby in a woman’s womb.
It’s worth reading his piece to understand how this type of coercion takes place. But the article also brings to mind something extremely troubling: how little most on the pro-abortion Left care about this coercion, and thus how little they truly care about choice. In fact, the pro-abortion movement almost uniformly ignores the reality that coerced abortions take place. Frighteningly, many of the most virulently pro-abortion voices on the left actively claim that this type of coercion never takes place at all. Whatever happened to “her body, her choice”?
So what does it say that so many lefty men are willing to scrap it in an attempt to pander to some vague fantasy of a vast, disgruntled, anti-choice center? What kind of cringing, bewildered invertebrates roll over and capitulate to the losing side of a debate at a time when they’ve never had more leverage? What contortionist of logic came up with the proposal that alienating 75 percent of one’s constituents, and declaring half to not deserve control over their bodies, can strengthen a party’s numbers? This is not broadening our coalition; it’s flagrantly shrinking it.
