About four years ago, or so, I was at a picnic with friends when the topic of conversation at one point became about abortion. A female friend of mine, who was / is a democrat, stated very clearly that she was for abortion. (Obviously). When I said that I thought abortion was nothing more than killing a kid in the womb, she emphatically opposed me. She said that a fetus is not a child.
I responded with the question of, "Well, when does a fetus stop being a fetus and becomes a child?" To which she said, "About six months."
My next question to her was, if it's six months before a fetus becomes a child, then at what point before that does it even become a human being? Is it six months also? Or does that occur before six months?"
She ended her participation in the conversation at that point and time. I respected her wishes and stopped asking her any further questions. In reality, however, I got my answer. But the typical response by a democrat when the questions get a little too tough to deal with, one of their most famous responses, is to just walk away from the conversation. Just like my friend did.
Fast forward a year later. I see her in the grocery store one morning, and she comes up to me with the biggest smile ever. "Hey Carroll, guess what?"
I looked at her, matching her smile and replied, "What?"
"I'm pregnant!" She exclaimed, "Dan and I are finally going have a baby!"
"That is so cool." I told her. We embraced with a short little hug before I asked the obvious next question. "How far along are you?"
"Three weeks." She informed me, while shaking her head in wonder, "I can't believe I'm pregnant with my first child."
I was really so happy for her. "That's just great." I confirmed again, displaying my happiness for her. Then it hit me. "Wait," I stammered, "I'm confused about something."
She looked at me queerly. "Confused about what?"
"You just said you couldn't believe you are pregnant with your first child, right?"
"Well, yes." She answered. "I can't believe it. What's so confusing about that?"
I looked right into her eyes. "Last year at the picnic you told me that a fetus is a fetus until six months, but just now you called your three week fetus, a child. Shouldn't you be happy to be pregnant with your first fetus?"
An exasperated expression consumed her. "Carroll, I am not having this conversation with you again."
"Fine." I said. "But could you at least explain to me why last year a three week fetus was a fetus and now it's a child? Could you just answer me that?"
She brushed me off by saying, "I got to finish shopping, and I have a ton of things to do today. Talk to you later." And off she went.
I pursued the matter no further, and went about my day. That was a few years ago, and while we are still cordial, friendly and civil when we bump into each other, I haven't been invited to anymore picnics. (Although she, Dan, her little boy, and I sometimes end up together at some of our other friends picnics and gatherings).
I know it's because I called her out on her "beliefs". And hey, I don't mind that people have different views and opinions than I, but at least know why you believe what you believe, and don't keep changing the rules of what you believe just to fit your politics. If you don't know why you believe what you believe then at least take a few steps back and evaluate it.
To go from calling a three week pregnancy one day a fetus, to calling it a child a year later, is about as stupid as it gets. But there lies the problem with democrats, they don't know why they believe half the shit they do, they seemingly believe things on the fly. There is no commonsense behind most of what they believe. For example, they want people to stop smoking cigarettes, yet they care not if you smoke weed. In fact, they encourage it. They want to make smoking weed legal to do all across the land, but they will be damned if they will let you smoke cigarettes.
It's like another woman told me once that she believed in abortion because it's legal. And if it's legal then it's okay to do. I then proceeded to ask her that if pedophilia was legal, would it be okay to do? Her answer was an emphatic "NO!". But that only led me to ask her, "Then why is abortion okay because it's legal, but if pedophilia was legal, it's not okay to do?"
I stumped yet another democrat. "Look," I continued, "if killing a child in the womb isn't wrong because it's legal to do, then pedophilia wouldn't really be wrong if it were legal to do, right? I mean, if you defend abortion because it's legal then you would have to defend pedophilia, too, if it were legal. Or have I missed something here?"
That woman also abruptly ended the conversation.
It's okay to have different opinions and views, but if you have an opinion on something, at least be consistent. Democrats tend to think that laws represent morals and values, and that's not exactly true. It doesn't matter that it's okay legally to get an abortion for no good reason, but it's still murder. It's still killing a human being. The fact that it's legal to do it doesn't mean it's not murder.
And yet, democrats on twitter call me a supporter of pedophilia or being a pedophile just because I think a pedophile has higher moral standards than a socialist. (To which in my opinion, the democratic party is a socialist party).
I do think a socialist has higher moral standards than a communist and a terrorist so, they should be happy about that. But just because I would vote for a pedophile over a socialist doesn't mean I support pedophiles. I hate both, pedophiles and democrats. They are both evil.
Still, they get pissed about that and try to tell everyone that they love kids, when in fact they say it's okay to kill them while they're inside the womb - because it's legal. That's how bankrupt their morality is. Then they dare judge me, and everybody else.
It just doesn't make any sense.
They defend abortion with, "A fetus is not a child until six months" one day, then a year later, "I'm three weeks pregnant with my first child."
Just be consistent. That's all I ask. Or is that just a little too much to ask for?
