March for Life in San Fran

Go here to see the story from the San Francisco Chronicle:

Well, I'll be honest, I'm not too surprised. There seems to be a slight leaning in the article, of course, towards those who support abortion, simply by calling pro-lifers "anti-abortion". While it is true, it's definitely a much more negative title then the others.

And the article does do a good job at showing the utter lack of logical coherency. The pictures speak lourder then words (re: the picture section of the article, especially the woman who's got "My Baby is Pro-Choice" written on her stomach). As I've heard others say, how can a piece of tissue mass have a conscience? How is it that a "non-person" can have a moral opinion? If you don't believe a baby is a person, then how is it that your baby is making a moral opinion? Furthermore, just simply seeing the pictures of the pro-choicers compared to those who are pro-life speaks volumes. We're quiet and peaceful, while they have to scream and yell and make fun of people because they know they have no point.

It reminds me a lot of what happened last year at UVic with regards to the vote at the UVSS. We had a vote to take off of the UVSS's policy that "the UVSS supports a woman's right to an abortion." It was opposed by Youth Protecting Youth, a pro-life club at the school, because of the fact that the UVSS is thus forcing students to pay fees into a Student Union that supports a position that is contrary to their fundamental beliefs. Del did a great job at putting together a very coherent argument for the pro-life side. Unfortunately, because of the scare tactics of the pro-choicers, we didn't win the vote because they would be taking down our signs and so forth and scream across campus.

It just goes to show that when you deny human life, you fall down the slippery sloap. You deny babies are human beings and so you start to think that you're nothing but a silly animal and so the only way to win is to scream and yell and destroy because it's your only way of expressing an opinion. No coherency to the argument. I pray for them, that they may see the error of their ways.
