Pro Child, Pro Family and Pro Choice - What?

April 23rd, 2007

So, last week on my way to work in the liberal city of Palo Alto, I noticed a sticker on the back of a car that read Pro Child, Pro Family and Pro Choice. I was quite confused of the messaging and still dont understand the true meaning of the sticker.  Now, I usually stay away from the whole abortion topic because it is very sensitive to most people; but I thought I would chime in anyway. If you are one of those overly emotional liberals, please do not read further.

It baffles me to think how someone can actually be Pro Child, Pro Family and Pro Choice at the same time; much less advertising it on the back of a car.  But what my experience tells me is that most liberals are more emotional than they are rational which I think explains the sticker.  Essentially, what this person is trying to do is make them self feel better about taking a human life or at least agreeing with it. Perhaps this person is confused, doesn’t know the facts (uninformed) or is a blatant idiot. That of course is always a possibility.

Okay, its out…Im against abortion. Why?  Because it is an undisputed fact that life begins at conception.  No, I am not a freak and I dont protest Planned Parenthood on the weekends nor do I look down on someone who has had an abortion.  Its their life and conscious that they have to deal with.

Pro Choice? What about the fetus, do they not get a choice? By the way, the Latin word for fetus means little child or young one.

    Michael - I agree with your summation for the motivations for place such a sticker on a vehicle. To me it is completely transparent that they are trying to appeal to their own justification for having a pro-abortion position.

    To me this issue has more facets than can be put into a hyphenated term. Also as a man who can never gestate a fetus I also recognize my diminished authority in this decision. I understand how a person can believe at some point cells become a person. I respect other peoples opinions in relation to that issue. The part I don't get is where ones opinion is more important than the mothers. We all know the varied horrible ways to become pregnant, so no need to list the ones I can think of. But more to the point Jane decides for herself that now is not the best time to have a baby. Some how another persons opinion supercedes the mothers decision for herself. I just can not fathom the justification on this. I am not talking about the serial welfare mother with 14 kids and 14 paternal fathers. I am talking about my rights ending at the tip of your nose and vice versa. Yes have an opinion, I don't begrudge it. But recognize other people have theirs as well. The last thing a young mother with no to low finances, no husband/partner and a whole lot of baby would need is to be screamed at for trying to make the best decision she can. I am thinking if a person has the conviction to rant and rail about the fetus being a person, they should perhaps either get to adopting these children or tone it down a bit. What do you think?

    Illuminati - you are right. This is a very complicated issue and I am not here to debate it becuase you will never change my mind and I will never change your mind.

    The point of this post goes back to being Pro Child, Pro Family and Pro Choice at the same time. Perhaps the person who wrote the sticker should have worded it differently (i.e. Pro 'Born' Child, Pro Family and Pro Choice). Whatever the case, I will go back to the point of life and when it begins. You talk about a Mother's right...well, when did she get the right to take the life of her child?

    Excellent article. Just a quick note. You misspelled conscience in the third paragraph.

    I am personally opposed to abortion, on ethical rather than political grounds. However, I think u are a little unfair about the sticker. The Pro Life lobby is just as emotional as Pro Choice, and just as stupid sometimes, in both actions and words. The point of the sticker, I think, is to say that just because X is pro choice does not mean they are anti family or anti children. This should not need saying but there is plenty of evidence to suggest that some pro lifers would suggest just that, namely that pro choice does mean anti family and anti children.

    Adam - thanks for the message; and perhaps you are right.
