You are wrong to mischaracterize my argument in the above referenced post. I never said anything about wanting to go back to the days when we were hunter/gatherers. I enjoy the fruits of our evolution as much as anyone else. I believe that rape is wrong for the same reason abortion is wrong – it is a violent assault on another person’s body.
You are using semantics to reframe a basic human right. Let’s compare each other’s way of stating the same thing…
You: You wish to see a world in which people who can bear children are at the mercy of those who inseminate them, willing or not.
Me: I wish to see a world in which people who can bear children are at the mercy of their own values and would never be willing to kill their own child, regardless of how they were conceived.
Human behavior will not change without a change to the laws that govern that behavior and laws will not change without a change in human behavior. One must come before the other as the two rarely converge perfectly in time and space. I work every day to change the behavior driving human abortion while simultaneously supporting changes to the laws that prevent this human tragedy. One will come before the other, however, they are both an iterative process. What I am certain of is that the killing of our unborn children will someday be remembered with the same disdain as slavery and genocide. You are on the wrong side of history, but it is never too late to join the fight to restore our humanity and embrace the dignity and value of all human life.
