Men can’t have opinions about abortion

What might be the biggest hypocrisy in this argument is how almost always, pro-abortion men are lauded as champions of women’s rights. Men who push and encourage women to kill their children are not barred by this “no men allowed” rule. Men who are vocal supporters of abortion are more than welcome to their opinions.

It seems to me that the issue isn’t that men are involving themselves in a “women’s issue” but that the opinion is unsatisfactory to the women who want the power to unilaterally decide life and death.

If men aren’t allowed to have opinions, then all men should be barred from the discussion. But they aren’t. There is an inherent bias. It has nothing to do with men having opinions. It’s with men having opinions that conflict with the people making this absurd argument.

It’s none of your business if it’s not your baby. It’s personal and private.

So, you’re saying that the taking of another human being’s life is none of my business? I’m curious, why are murder trials “The People Vs…”? What about rape? If a man is never involved in a rape, are you saying it’s none of his business to condemn it?

I’ve never been involved in any type of sexual assault. Why should rape be any of my business? If a man I’ve never met decides to rape a woman I’ve never met, why should I care? That man made the personal and private choice of raping a woman. His body, his choice, amiright? The problem is, as everyone can agree, it doesn’t involve just his body. It involves her body too.

Likewise, abortion doesn’t just involve the women’s body, it involves the body of another human being.

I don’t have to be Jew or German to condemn the Holocaust. I don’t need to be Sudanese to be outraged over the genocide in South Sudan. I don’t need to be Iraqi to care that ISIS Daesh is murdering, raping, torturing and killing people.

The killing of 58,000,000 children since 1973, the genocide of 1.3 billion children worldwide since 1980, has a global, societal impact. One person can have a profound effect on your life. How can 1.2 billion dead children have no effect on me? How is that NOT my business?

The killing of another human being is my business… 

If someone should kill another human being—I should be outraged. We know murder is wrong. It’s one of the most basic, most sacred laws around the world. It irrevocably takes a life. Yet, when it comes to a precious baby, it’s none of my business? I don’t think so.

This claim boils down to this: sexism, selfishness and power trips. Women who want to be free to kill without guilt or shame don’t want to hear men—or women—who convict them. It’s a lot easier to do something evil when nobody is telling you it’s evil.

Mankind is my business. It’s all of our business.
