CNN quoted NOW President Terry O’Neill saying something so outlandish I’m surprised CNN quoted it. Well not really but…you know.
“A fetus is not a life, sorry,” NOW President Terry O’Neill told CNN. “And no, nobody’s religious conviction justifies taking women’s ability to shape their own futures away from them.”
OK. Where do I start?
Uhm. Whether fetus is life is inarguable. To say it’s not is anti-science. I know us conservative types are the antediluvian primates who are anti-science and all but what O’Neill said is just imbecilic.
A fetus is not life? That’s not the question. The question of life is scientific. She might argue that it’s not life worthy of human respect, which is also absurd, but at least she’d have been attempting a moral argument rather than a scientific one.
The fact that CNN didn’t press her on this ridiculous assertion tells you all you need to know about CNN.
Proaborts lie. They do. Sorry. But to be fair, they have to in order to support their decision.
The part where O’Neill says “nobody’s religious conviction justifies taking women’s ability to shape their own futures away from them” is also laughable. If you ask me pro-abortion types should probably shy away from talking about taking people’s futures away from them.” Just sayin’. It kinda’ rings hollow.
But the point is that O’Neill obviously shuns both science and religious convictions as ways to shape her opinion on abortion. So what in her life instructs her position other than power? Nothing as far as I can see.
My thought to O’Neill is: Get a life.
