So, the Pew Research Center produced a report today regarding what issues are considered moral issues by Americans, with the following paragraph:
“Regardless of their views about the legality of abortion, most Americans think that having an abortion is a moral issue. By contrast, the public is much less likely to see other issues involving human embryos – such as stem cell research or in vitro fertilization – as a matter of morality.”
Illustrated by the following chart:
Not surprisingly, views on these issues are related to religiosity:
I’m interested in this which, I think, gives the game away:
“However, a majority of those who think abortion is morally wrong consider embryonic stem cell research to be either morally acceptable (23%) or not a moral issue (29%).”
And they also do not object to IVF.
This basically that the whole “pro-life” thing is a sham. Opposition to abortion is not based on destroying life, or opponents to abortion would picket IVF clinics and places where stem-cell research takes place. So, what gives? Since these practices involve “destroying lives”, from their point of view, why would they consider one more morally objectionable than the others? It’s not a matter of embryonic development since the majority of abortions takes place in the first trimester.
Look again: abortion, IVF, stem cell research… only one involves a woman controlling her sexuality. That is what makes it objectionable to abortion opponents. Not IVF, which does destroy embryos. Not stem cell research, even though it involves using cells that have “potential for life”, as it is claimed. But neither IVF nor stem cell research involves the direct control of her sexuality by women. No, the big difference, and what makes abortion objectionable, is that abortion allows the sluts to avoid the punishment for their sluttitude… being stuck with a baby (and it deprives the deserving but infertile parents from a potential child), hence the related opposition to contraception (which does not destroy embryos).
