Below is a video that’s making the rounds this week….
Now, setting aside the insane and laughable circular “logic” this unfortunate professor is using, the real argument she’s making is that unborn babies have little to no worth.
If I go out and buy myself a 16GB flash-drive for $10, and realize when I get home that it has fallen out of my bag and is lost, I’ll be ticked off, but I’ve really only lost $10 and the time it took me to buy the thing. However, if I get the flash-drive home and plug into my computer and transfer all my kids’ baby photos, my wedding photos, video of my kids’ first steps, photos of the last vacation I spent with my dad before he passed away, and the novel I’ve been working on for the last ten years and is 99% finished, and erase my computer as I’m going to sell it, and then lose the flash-drive…. Well, that would be a tragedy.
The nutty professor in the video sees human beings in the same way. A person only has worth if he or she has experiences, memories, and relationships. An unborn fetus has none of that and is therefore quite worthless and easy to replace.
And this is the true evil of abortion: the low opinion that pro-abortionists have of the intrinsic worth of human life (i.e. being created in the image of God). They love to say they have a high opinion of women’s rights, but that’s complete BS. There are few people who hate women more than pro-abortionists.
So who is God according to this result-of-affirmative-action professor? The pregnant woman is — she alone can arbitrarily decide if the unborn person has worth or not simply by choosing to have an abortion or to not have one. And when she chooses not to have an abortion, the future experiences and so forth of the child will retroactively give the unborn baby the value it needs in order to make the abortion of it wrong…. or something like that…..
