Pablo writes, “So you oppose abortion, but not the death penalty? If so, then you’re only pro-life some of the time.”
Response: The death penalty is a punishment reserved for violent, depraved criminals. Abortion, on the other hand, is a death sentence for innocent, defenseless babies. There is no moral equivalence in these scenarios.
The truly unconscionable position is to oppose the death penalty while favoring abortion rights. If we can conjure up compassion for violent, depraved criminals, why can’t we do the same for innocent, defenseless babies? Why should we value the former over the latter?
The short answer is because we’re selfish and morally bankrupt. We like having the option to kill babies in order to prevent them from interfering with our lives.
It’s difficult to imagine anything more disgraceful.
