2. As the OP made clear in their original post about 12 Years a Slave…
There is one very powerful scene in 12 Years a Slave which succinctly sums up the position of the pro-life movement and our core opposition to abortion.
It takes place between Samuel Bass (a Canadian carpenter played by Brad Pitt) and Edwin Epps (a brutal Southern slave owner played by Michael Fassbender).
Bass: ‘The law says you have the right to hold a nigger, but begging the law’s pardon… it lies. Is everything right because the law allows it? Suppose they’d pass a law taking away your liberty and making you a slave?’
Edwin Epps: ’Ha!’
Edwin Epps: ’That ain’t a supposable case.’
Bass: ’Because the law states that your liberties are undeniable? Because society deems it so? Laws change. Social systems crumble. Universal truths are constant. It is a fact, it is a plain fact that what is true and right is true and right for all. White and black alike.’
Imagine this was a conversation about abortion, and the treatment of unborn human beings, and you might start to get a handle on why the modern pro-life movement is so very necessary.
