ubiquitin's Journal: Slavery versus Abortion 2

Journal by ubiquitin

Spoken by someone already free, spoken by someone already born....

SLAVERY - Although he may have a heart and a brain, and he may be human life biologically, a slave is not a legal person. The Dred Scott decision by the U.S. Supreme Court has made that clear.
ABORTION - Although he may have a heart and a brain, and he may be a human life biologically, an unborn baby is not a legal person. The Roe v. Wade decision by the U.S. Supreme Court has made that clear.

SLAVERY - A black man only becomes a legal person when he is set free. Before that time, we should not concern ourselves about him. He has no legal rights.
ABORTION - A baby only becomes a legal person when he is born. Before that time, we should not concern ourselves about him. He has no legal rights.

SLAVERY - If you think slavery is wrong, then nobody is forcing you to be a slave-owner. But don't impose your morality on somebody else!
ABORTION - If you think abortion is wrong, then nobody is forcing you to have one. But don't impose your morality on somebody else!

SLAVERY - A man has a right to do what he wants with his own property.
ABORTION - A woman has a right to do what she wants with her own body.

SLAVERY - Isn't slavery really something merciful? After all, every black man has the right to be protected. Isn't it better never to be set free than to be sent unprepared, and ill-equipped, into a cruel world?
ABORTION - Isn't abortion really something merciful? After all, every baby has a right to be wanted. Isn't it better never to be born than to be sent alone and unloved into a cruel world?

1857 -> Dred Scott decision
1973 -> Roe v. Wade decision

  • Excellent juxtaposition.

    I made a post on MeFi a little while back when a FPP cropped up on the S. Dakota bill. I've never seen a more dedicated group of folks with the insatiable desire to kill babies.

    I mean, women might have to wear "fat clothes" for a while and folks might just have to act responsibly in social situations! Gasp!
  • Slaves are sentient. Unborn babies (at least in the first trimester) are not.

    I respect your thoughts on the subject though, I just don't think the comparison is fair.

Be sociable. Speak to the person next to you in the unemployment line tomorrow.
