Of all the pro-life arguments that annoy me, and the list is long, the one that gets to me most is the idea that the “child” that is “murdered” could potentially be the key to some great discovery or medical breakthrough or piece of art or music or whatever else.

If you’re going to subscribe to a theory of predestination, fine, but subscribe to it fully. Any force or being that determines what people are meant for would also have to know whether or not said person will actually come to exist.

You can’t have it both ways.


Have you ever heard the saying that two heads are better than one? The more human minds we have available working on the problems facing us the better off we all are. Abortion has destroyed the enormous potential of over 1.7 billion human minds in the last 40 years alone. How many of these people would have been world leaders, congresswomen, senators, doctors, scientists, and teachers? How many inventions, innovations, and medical breakthroughs have we lost because of their destruction?

No belief in predestiny is necessary to realize that these impacts are real. Have you noticed that as our population has exploded over the last 100 years, so has our technology, medical science, longevity, food density, and standard of living? Do you think these advances might have something to do with the number of minds participating in developing solutions to our problems?
