It never ceases to amaze me how often I see pro-lifers attempt to argue against abortion by just calling it something that it, literally by definition, is not.

Not only is the argument weak and painfully over-simplistic, but it’s objectively untrue.


You are correct that abortion is not legally defined as murder within the United States, but neither was the slaughter of the Jews under Nazi German law. But I suspect you would have considered their killing murder, or am I wrong?

Would you instead be amazed at those who argued against their killing on the grounds that it was murder simply because the Reichsgericht did not consider them people?

Would you consider their argument ‘weak’ and ‘painfully over-simplistic’?

Would you dismiss a German soldier shooting a Jewish child in the head as something other than murder in the interest of being ‘objective’?
