Here’s a test:
I’m holding a baby in one hand and a petri dish holding a fetus in the other.
I’m going to drop one. You chose which.
If you really truly believe a fetus is the same thing as a baby, it should be impossible for you to decide. You should have to flip a coin, that’s how impossible the decision should be.
Shot in the dark, you saved the baby.
Because you’re aware there’s a difference.
Now admit it
The fetus is different… in that it’s already dead. It had to be removed from its mother to end up in the petri dish. Because of that, it would be dead by now, or would die soon unless it was put back into the mother surgically.
[i]It is dead.[/i]
Were it still in the womb, it would be [i]alive.[/i] And every life is precious.
No, I don’t advocate abortions.
But I’m not an idiot.
If it was rape, get a damn abortion. It’s not your fault. If you had unprotected sex, though, that is your fault, so live with the decision.
Yeah, I always hated this example. It’s so fucking dumb. Or better yet:
I have a gun pointed at an old lady and a gun pointed at a newborn. Which one do you want me to fire at?
The grandma because she already lived a nice life? Well then we should legalize grandma-killing since you chose her!
Just because people chose something in a Catch-22 doesn’t actually mean squat. And it certainly doesn’t mean you can make a logical fallacy of “You saved A, and killed B, therefore it should always be legal to kill B in all circumstances.”
I’m not even making a judgement call here on abortions, just saying this is the absolute dumbest fucking example they could have possibly made.
