“Pro-Choicers”: Why You Can’t Support Abortion While Opposing Puppy Murder

Barb Wire

Matt Walsh is a 27-year-old conservative blogger, writer, and talk radio host.  He calls himself a “professional sayer of truths,” and in a recent column, that’s exactly what Matt does as he boldly enters into the abortion debate.  He hammers home the inconsistency of many on the Left when it comes to their unreasonable stance regarding life.  As he adeptly points out, it is all a matter of the intrinsic, value of human life at all stages of development.  “Intrinsic” means that it is NOT “earned, acquired, and conditional.”

You cannot be upset about the killing of animals if you are not firmly disgusted by the murder of innocent human life.  Well, you can, but not with any sense of reason or coherence. You cannot, as a sane adult, find animal killing to be morally offensive but abortion to be morally neutral.

In the days of slavery, a horse was granted a higher legal status than an African slave. Abortion has returned us to a similar dynamic, only we haven’t dehumanized a race or ethnicity – we’ve dehumanized an entire stage of life.
