How to Answer Abortionist Logic

Today’s article in the Gazette has set off progressive liberals in the online comments section.  They are making two stunning arguments.

First, they effectively say that because unwanted pregnancies, carried to term, end in a child living in squalid conditions to abusive parents, it is better that they be killed than continue to live in such deplorable conditions.  Someone should ask Leonardo da Vinci about that sometime.  Conceived in an unwanted pregnancy and born to a peasant woman in the dark ages, Leonardo’s early life would have surpassed even the poorest among as as the most regrettable of circumstances.  But, because he was given life, the world is much the better.

And, moreover, if we can morally justify the killing of pre-born humans to stem the tide of children living in squalid, abusive conditions, what is to stop us from killing born human children to stem the tide of children living in squalid, abusive conditions?

Second, they are lecturing anyone who dares be “pro-life” that you’re not really pro-life unless you adopt.  The argument fails as soon as it is argued, but it moves us to point out two compelling resources.  First, Focus on the Family has created website and the “Wait No More” campaign.  Adoption has always been close to the heart of pro-life activists – including Jim Daly, new President of Focus on the Family who is himself an adopted child.

In addition, Live Action Films has created a series of You Tube videos that help you answer these self-defeating – but oft-intimidating – arguments.  To this question about adoption, consider the following video:
