“How to confuse a pro-lifer with one question.”
this is awesome. i love it when people get other people to actually THINK.
This video is both amazing and disturbing to me.
Amazing because it really succinctly calls them out on their lack of compassion and demonstrates that they aren’t just ethically compromised but LOGICALLY compromised too. And when they’re confronted with that reality they either try to retreat into meaningless rhetoric (“that’s between her and god”, “I’m no lawyer I’ll leave it up to society to decide”, “all I know is that I’ve been called to do this, we just have to pray for them”) or like the last interviewee just completely shut down any dialogue that even attempts to apply reason and logic to this issue.
The disturbing thing is the reality that questions like this in all likelyhood aren’t going to change the minds of any of these people. They’re too far in it. Too much of who they are is invested and embedded to start thinking and doubting now.
Because the church has done such a fantastic job of tying this issue to their religion and their religion to their self identity the idea that just maybe they should think critically about abortion is literally repulsive. Critical thinking is an attack on how they define themselves as a human beings.
To truly question is to undo who they are.
No wonder these people are so small and hateful and dogmatic.
