As ridiculous as the story we’re about to share is, we should probably be celebrating. If the pro-choice community has been reduced to making arguments that are this far off the map of sanity, then we must be on the verge of seeing a major shift in America’s views on abortion.
Well, either that, or we are really headed for dark waters in our cultural discourse.
According to College Reform, a pro-choice professor at Purdue University, apparently losing in his debate with pro-life activist Seth Drayer, chose to attack the common technique of showing fetal abortion photographs as…well, just hear it from the professor himself:
“He thinks fetuses are children, and he belongs to an organization that likes to show images of fetuses,” said biology professor David Sanders, referring to Drayer and his group, Created Equal. “What would you call the public display of a butt naked body of a child? I would call it child pornography. Do they have their permission? Do they have the permission of the fetus? Obviously not.”
College Reform reported that one baffled member of the audience said that Sanders himself basically just admitted that unborn fetuses were children, which he quickly rejected.
“I didn’t admit it,” he said. “I’m using his language. He thinks it’s a child. I do not.”
In a conversation with The Liberty Conservative, Drayer said Sanders’ argument was nothing short of asinine.
“The claim that displaying abortion victim images in public is equal to child pornography is absurd,” he said. “And laughable, based on the reaction rom the crowd gathered for the debate.”
Drayer went on to explain, legally, how there was no connection between child pornography and the display of aborted fetuses, but we don’t really need to reproduce that argument here, do we? We might as well mount a legal argument against calling pet ownership slavery. Sometimes, when your ideological enemies make absurd claims, the best thing to do is just to let them stand on their own ridiculousness. To argue is to lend their claim a false sense of legitimacy, and we can’t afford to give these pro-abortion whackadoos any more of that.
Our sincere hope is that by highlighting Sanders’ comments, we’ll show pro-choice Americans that they are ideologically tied to some of the most radical, insane people in the country. Many of them don’t know that. They don’t really hear from the seedy underbelly of the pro-abortion movement. They don’t realize just how sick these folks really are. Some people have to be shocked into a state of full awareness.
Then, perhaps they’ll wake up to the sick practice they are supporting.
