“How to Stump Anti-Abortionists”—BlogLogic from Daniel Florien


At the Unreasonable Faith blog, Daniel Florien has posted advice on “How to Stump an Anti-Abortionist with One Simple Question.” Here we have another example of that unfortunate syndrome I call BlogLogic. By his own reasoning he paints himself into a corner. Go here to see his post. Here’s my brief reply:

You’re kidding, right? No, I suppose not. But you should know better than to engage in such hasty generalization. (I believe I know you do know better.) Thoughtful pro-lifers have thought about this and won’t be stumped if you ask them.

Here’s one for you: Suppose abortion IS the murder of an innocent and defenseless human person; what do YOU think should be done about it? It’s silly to say that because nothing should be done about it, it isn’t murder. You’ve got the reductio ad absurdum turned inside out.
