OPINION: You Cannot Change The Minds of Evil People. Evil People Must Be Defeated.
Earlier this week, New York's Senate passed an abortion bill I can only describe as pure evil. Yes, abortion itself is pure evil. But since abortion has been sold as a woman's healthcare option for decades, many people honestly believe abortion is women's healthcare. There's probably someone in your life who is pro-choice but you know isn't evil. I don't want to get too bogged down in this tangent, but I needed to make that distinction. Okay? Okay.
But what New York did is evil. They celebrated the passage of a bill which allows a woman to kill her unborn child even if it's moments from being delivered. Yes, I think it's just as wrong to kill a child ten seconds after its conception. But at ten seconds after a child's conception, that child isn't felt by the mother in the mother's womb like she can feel her child in the second and third trimesters.
So while I'm adamantly against abortion in all stages of pregnancy, I can understand how women abort their early pregnancies: they don't feel and have little to no emotional connection with the child. Because, due to the small size of their baby, they cannot feel their baby.
Which isn't true in the third trimester.
To know and feel your child, for six, seven, eight and nine months, then decide "Yeah, you know what... Imma kill it" is the height of evil. There are few acts in this life more evil than killing your unborn child, especially as you've come to feel and know it.
It's my position and assertion that we, voters and pro-life people, should behave as if this kind of evil cannot have its mind changed. Hear me out.
After New York cemented itself as celebrators of infanticide, my mother called to ask, "How were they able to do it?" wanting the details of what laws, what precedents, and upon what facts New York was basing this new law. She, like so many others, was trying to understand how such a monstrous thing could happen. Which is a totally normal reaction. We all put ourselves into various situations to try to understand what caused an event to occur.
But that's where she, and everyone else, is in error. What New York did, what all die-hard abortionists do, has nothing to do with facts, logic, science, or ethics. To try to apply facts, logic, science or ethics to the situation is to fail to understand the true nature of such a passion for abortion.
Facts, logic, science, and ethics fail the abortion position each and every time they're applied. So passionate pro-aborts muddy the abortion waters with whatever philosophical pretzel then can twist themselves into to justify the evil they support. Abortion is about power from money. Planned Parenthood is a cash cow. Abortion rings the till. Funds are then funneled into PACs which support Democrats for election and re-election. Lather, rinse, grab the forceps and take off the calvarium.
Such people, people like Andrew Cuomo of New York, Cecile Richards the former President of Planned Parenthood, and many of the "doctors" who perform abortions, are not open to being reasoned with about abortion. They don't care about ethics. They're not interested in science. Their hearts are not moved by your "Choose Life" bumper sticker.
Such people need to be defeated. Resoundingly. Waste not your energies trying to understand or change the minds of those whose minds are resolutely closed and blinded by evil.
No, I'm not saying to stop fighting for life, to stop talking to people who are pro-choice or to cease efforts to change hearts and minds. I still contend most Americans are decent. They've been sold a lie about abortion. But I'm not talking about the common man or woman you'd meet at a Change my Mind event. I'm talking the upper crust elites who know the truth of what abortion is, and fully endorse the evil for the money and power it brings. I'm talking about Planned Parenthood, politicians like Andrew Cuomo, Nancy Pelosi, Kirstin Gillibrand et al. Such fierce advocates for killing unborn children, who derive power from the continued "right" to kill children, need to be defeated not understood.
New York is a vastly liberal state. It bleeds deep blue. So while I'm generally not a fan of the GOP and how it's failed to defund Planned Parenthood, I cannot deny there is still a difference in what a Republican state would do with abortion versus a Democrat state. We've witnessed the horror of it this week.
As it turns out, party lines still matter. It's often a line between life and death. My God do I wish that were hyperbole.
