Abortion is a lot like slavery ft. Dinesh D’Souza | #TruthStraightUp

♪ D’Souza: The abortion debate
is really illuminated by by the Lincoln-Douglas debates.
Interestingly, Douglas argues, and this is in the context of
slavery, that each community, each state, should decide for
itself if it wants slavery. Douglas’ arguments are the
so-called “pro-choice” ones. He goes, “We have a big country.
We should agree to disagree.” Lincoln counters
by saying, “You cannot invoke the
principle of choice without regard to the
content of the choice.” In other words, you can’t
use your freedom to take away the freedom
of someone else, in that case, a slave.
The same could be said about the unborn.
You can’t invoke choice to cancel out the life choices
of another human being. I think by looking at history,
we can help understand our own peculiar situation
and learn from it. ♪

  • You mean people have a God Given right to "Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness?" And "Life" is NUMBER ONE RIGHT OF ALL PEOPLE WHO GOD Created? Including Babies? What a noble thought. HOW LONG WILL CHRISTIANS BE SILENT WHILE DEMS SLAUGHTER BABIES BY THE TENS OF THOUSANDS?

  • Come talk to me when you can take a 2-week-old fetus and set them free from the umbilical chord and let them grow and prosper.

  • What makes the abortion issue so thorny is nobody can agree on the basic dynamics of what is going on here. If you frame as "woman's body, woman's choice" that becomes easy to support. But the pro life side doesn't consider the child part of the woman's body, it considers the child it's own individual and therefore has rights and you can't kill it. Where people go wrong is thinking "anyone who opposes my position must be evil and lack morality" when the reality is you have similar moral values and are just applying them differently.

  • The pro choice position is that "fetus" isnt a human. Thats the hurtle. You can use science to argue it is, but they will deny it. Ironic huh?

  • hate the whole “my body my choice” thing. you didn’t get preg on your own; and abortion speaks more about our society on a broader scale which is why we all care for the same reason we care about a person we dont know in the city being murdered-it tells us about our society.

  • Could not agree more, and that is why baby killers choose to harp on the issue of "what defines a human being". If ou laws say it is not human until 30 days after birth, then it is OK to kill "it" any time up to, and including the 30th day. 🤔
    That is where our humanism is failing us miserably.

  • My friend works with women who’ve had abortions … Like Abortion Recovery. Some have been hiding their abortions 20 years. The pain and guilt never go away!! She tells me, as well as a dear friend, it is a guy-wrenching, difficult process as you name your baby and have its funeral!!

  • This is a category error in reasoning — not to mention a lack of what the phrase my body my choice expresses. What Einstein here thinks is the word choice applies to something else when choice only applies to a property owner: that is namely a woman who freaking owns the body the fetus must attach itself to. For crying out loud, the fetus does not have the right to attach itself to the mother’s uterine wall anymore than a tape worm can attach itself in the mother’s body. Replace fetus or tape worm with anything else does it have a right to attach itself to an independent life source? Do I have a right to attach a room to the exterior of your home without authorization? No, but I know you will say you don’t have the right to murder me also if I did an unauthorized action. Well if I violently attached myself I bet to defer. In GUN STATES usually in the SOUTH you gun totters love to murder home intruders in the name of protecting your family. In Florida the is stand your ground laws where plenty of murder have occurred so if I attach myself to one of these gun toting murderers you telling me he won’t kill me? I think he will murder me in plain sight and say it was self defense. I guess some human life is NOT SACRED after all. All human life is either always true or it is a false claim. You can’t be pro life and pro death penalty. Understand CONCEPTS and how to reason properly if you think you can do both.

  • It's simple Democrats like in the past believe that babies are not people like how they once believed that blacks are not people.

  • Slavery
    a condition compared to that of a slave in respect of exhausting labor or restricted freedom.

    Fetus who is a living being is denied the freedom of choice to live by its own mother.

  • I think you could apply this to the death penalty too. Those convicted made the choice to commit atrocities, so therefore, sentencing them does not deprive them of that choice.

  • It's just a fetus on earth in a mother’s womb, unless of course, it's a microorganism on Mars, then it's a sign of life.

  • Well, first off, Lincoln was tyrannical asshole. He had no business declaring war on his own country. I mean really. What kind of person does that? Let's go kill our countrymen because we disagree with the stance on slavery. I'm no for slavery, but to go to war in your own country over it? Stupid. There other ways of resolving the matter. The remaining southern states were on the verge of ending it. Just needed a some time. But oh no. Lincoln had an election to win. The guy was a scumbag and was despised by people in his administration. Secondly, the real debate is whether the unborn is actually a human life. I submit that it is not. The potential for life is there, but not until birth, imo, and according to the Bible. Genesis tells us when the breath of life occurs.
