Lifers are hypocrites. They insist that all they want to do is 'save babies' but that is a lie and they know it. Why are lifers hypocrites, and why does their position fail? - lifers are oposed to abortion, yet many of them seek to ban the very thing that will reduce abortions - birth control. In other words, this is about sex - specifically, women having sex. - lifers want to ban hormonal contraception, but they ignore the fact that millions of women are on contraception for medical reasons, no social reasons. But hey, women are just lying about the pain they experience, right? And we know that pro life men think that period pain is just like a headache to them. - lifers hate abortions because they claim the fetus can feel pain, but they want terminally ill fetuses to be born into a life of suffering far greater than any pain an abortion could create. - lifers claim to care about children so much, yet they don't care if a young child sees graphic images of 'abortions' on the TV or on a banner. - lifers care about children, but they take their children to an anti abortion protest, using them as a tool to promote their agenda. - lifers insist that by forcing women to view an ultrasound of her 'baby' she will change her mind and keep it. They claim this is so she will be aware of what she is doing - but would lifers watch the execution of a condemned man, including a botched execution, so they can be sure what they are supporting? - lifers want to reduce abortions, yet they complain about the number of parents on welfare to feed their kids. If those mothers had abortions when they were able to, they wouldn't be on welfare, would they? - some lifers are even so extreme that they won't even allow for an abortion if the woman would die. If you will die if you continue with your pregnancy, that's just tough (*)(*)(*)(*), and you have to leave your existing children behind because to save your own life and mother your existing children is just selfish and wrong. This argument has nothing to do with saving babies, and never has. Its about punishing women for having sex. By banning birth control, a woman cannot have sex without fear of falling pregnant. But while they ban hormonal birth control, I bet that no one will touch condoms - condoms affect men, after all, and its unfair to deny men the right to satisfy their sexual desires. Lifers demand that people keep their babies, or give it up for adoption, like there are millions of people waiting to adopt a child. Yet they want to prevent gay couples and single people from adopting, which means that there are babies that cannnot be adopted because the adoptive parents don't fit their criteria. Lifers want women to have their babies even if the baby will suffer from a severe disease or illness. 'Just give it up for adoption' they say. They tell choicers that aborting a 'baby' is like throwing it away like rubbish, yet they can't see that giving away your own flesh and blood to a stranger is the exact same thing. They also assume that people actually want to adopt severely disabled children. 99% of people who adopt want a healthy child, not a sick one. Lifers ignore this though, and of course they would, as it goes against their arguments. Lifers want to force their opinions on everyone else. They don't care if you are too young, or already have children, or can't afford a baby, or have broken up with your partner, or were raped. If you get pregnant, you must have that baby whether you like it or not. It isn't their bodies but they seek to assert their authority over YOUR lives and YOUR bodies. Its about time it stopped.
