The past few years haven’t been great for abortion. More and more people are calling themselves pro-life, including more young Americans than ever before. Pro-life laws are being passed in record numbers each year. While it would be foolish to say that pro-lifers are winning the war on abortion, it wouldn’t be wrong to say that we’re making progress — and that has the pro-aborts panicking. Some pretty crazy statements are being made in their desperate attempt to keep abortion on demand legal at any time, for any reason. Some are flat-out ridiculous, some are insulting, and others chilling. These are ten of the dumbest things said in defense of abortion.
10. Women shouldn’t have to choose between their cell phones and birth control.
In a stunning display of entitlement, students at the University of New Mexico got upset because the school would no longer be subsidizing birth control. While pro-aborts often try to give sad, sad stories about women who need birth control out of medical necessity, or need abortion because they will DIE without it, the truth is, it’s often merely a matter of convenience. The reason women should get free birth control? Because otherwise, students might be forced to choose between their birth control and… their cell phones! Or their gym memberships! Oh, cruel world! It is just an unthinkable notion that a college student be forced to work out for free at the icky gym on campus, or go with a cheaper cell phone model — or, even worse, pay for the ultra-cheap generic brand birth control at Wal-Mart. Worst of all is the notion that they might be forced to abstain from sex, since they can’t afford birth control and aren’t ready for a baby. Because in the pro-abort world, women are merely animals, incapable of controlling their sexual urges, right?
9. Pro-lifers need a lesson on the birds and the bees.
Nancy Pelosi makes her first appearance on our list, where she responded to laws limiting (but not outlawing) abortions in North Carolina and Texas by saying that pro-life politicians needed “a lesson on the birds and the bees”. Because the only people who understand sex and pregnancy are the pro-aborts, right? Unfortunately, that has turned out to be less and less true over the years. Pro-lifers have embryology on their side, as well as the science of pregnancy and fetal development. Meanwhile, pro-aborts just try to insist that a baby is just a clump of tissues, or that fetal pain laws are dumb because fetal pain doesn’t exist, or that there are no adverse risks that come with abortion. It doesn’t matter that the science isn’t on their side — they’ll still keep claiming, like Nancy Pelosi did, that it’s pro-lifers who are the idiots in need of educating.
8. Women should go into debt to have an abortion.
Abortions are often expensive, costing thousands of dollars when late-term. Ripping babies into pieces is hard work, after all. But this can mean finding the money for the abortion is difficult for some women. Thankfully, pro-aborts like Leela Yellesetty are here to help! What does she do when women are struggling to afford an abortion? Why, help put them into debt, of course! Yellesetty bragged about how she would talk women into taking about payday loans with interest rates over 300%, pawning their valuables, and putting the money for their procedure onto already maxed-out credit cards. Who cares that these women will be breaking their backs to pay off a $3,000 abortion funded by a payday loan with a 322% interest rate? The abortionist got their money, and that’s all that matters.
7. White people are trying to eliminate abortion to “build up the race”.
Pro-lifers have long since spoken out about the overwhelming number of black babies that are aborted. We speak out against the fact that black babies are being aborted at higher rates than other babies, or that many abortion clinics intentionally target minority neighborhoods. And why is this? According to CBS analyst Nancy Giles, this is all because white pro-lifers want to build up the white race. Yep, that’s right. Our dastardly plan is to build up the white race by opposing abortions of black babies, therefore leading to… erm… the births of more black babies. Makes perfect sense.
6. Men don’t deserve to have a voice on abortion.
According to many pro-aborts, men shouldn’t be allowed to talk about abortion, at all (unless they’re for abortion, in which case it’s totally cool). This is because men can’t get pregnant, so as one pro-abortion blogger said, male voices should be silenced in the abortion discussion. Nevermind that the baby is half the father’s. Men need to just shut up about abortion! And meanwhile, anyone who isn’t black can’t speak about slavery, and anyone who isn’t Jewish can’t talk about the Holocaust. Right? It’s the same logic, after all.
5. You’re only a person if you can play tennis.
A few years ago, Choice USA released a video about pregnancy that was just hilarious. To show how ridiculous the idea of a fetus being a person is, a pregnant woman is told that she has to play doubles tennis instead of singles, must pay for two tickets to see a movie instead of one, and must split a bill between two people three ways — because her unborn child is a person. Get it?? Because everyone knows that a person is defined by what they can or cannot do. In a wheelchair and can’t play tennis? Well, clearly this means you aren’t a person worthy of life.
4. As a Catholic, abortion is sacred ground.
Nancy Pelosi makes her second appearance on our list, where she talks about her wackadoodle version of the Catholic faith. Pelosi defended not only abortions, but late-term abortions, by saying that as a practicing Catholic, keeping late-term abortions legal was sacred ground. Abortion may be a sacrament for pro-aborts, but in the actual Catholic church, protecting all human life is what’s actual sacred ground. Pelosi’s fight to keep abortion legal goes against Catholic teachings, and pretending she’s a pro-abortion warrior because she’s a Catholic does nothing more than make a mockery of the Church.
3. Women who don’t support abortion are men with breasts.
It’s not unusual to hear a pro-abortion feminist say that women can’t be feminists unless they support abortion. Unless you fall in lockstep with their abortion worship, you can’t be a part of their club. But they also insist that they’re pro-choice, not pro-abortion. Actually exercise a choice they don’t agree with, though, and they’ll turn on you before you can blink. Case in point: Pennsylvania State Representative Babette Josephs, who smeared pro-life women by calling them men with breasts. Because you can’t be a real woman unless you’re willing to advocate for the brutal murder of your unborn child!
2. Women would be nothing without abortion.
Carly Manes is 19-years-old, and defines herself as an abortion activist. She’s able to do all kinds of cool stuff, and so are other women. Why? Because of abortion! According to Manes, it is only because abortion is legal that women are able to devote their energy to do things like go to school, work as an activist, be an athlete, or decide to be vegetarians (like Manes!). Women owe everything to abortion. Without the ability to kill our unborn children, women would be able to accomplish nothing. Girl power!
1. Abortion takes a life, but it’s a life worth sacrificing.
Salon blogger Mary Elizabeth Williams takes the number one spot on our list, with easily the most chilling statement. According to Williams, abortion is taking a life — but that’s OK because it is a life worth sacrificing. Williams claims that an unborn child is a life, just not one worth as much a mother’s feeling that a pregnancy is inconvenient. For Williams, some lives simply have more worth than others, with the “others” being disposable. It takes a truly depraved mind to argue that it’s acceptable to take a life merely because that person isn’t worthy of life.

Pelosi needs to check into an asylum for the criminally insane.
Doesn’t pelosi have six children? Does she regret not having aborted them? Does she hate children and families so much that she considers aborting them at full term ‘sacred ground’? Has anyone ever asked her? Has she had an abortion? Would she like it if her children had her grandchildren all aborted? If abortions are so good for women that they’re touted as ‘women’s health’, why don’t demon=crats open abortion spas and brag about them to their friends and families? If abortions are healthy, why don’t demon=crats simply abort themselves off the planet? If abortions are just an expression of personal freedom, then why would any democrat want to have children at all, ever? It must imply being enslaved anytime one becomes pregnant, no?
Post partum psychosis??
Wow….speechless….they have proven over and over how stupid their reasoning is….
Every one of the arguments in the article is simply ridiculous. Please note, voters in Marin County, your congressional representative and former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi uttered some of the most ridiculous things in the article. Every Catholic vote she gets should cause the voter to immediately confess it as a sin and then seek some intense psychiatric help, they’re as sick as all get-out.
“1. Abortion takes a life, but it’s a life worth sacrificing.”
You’ve gotta be kidding!
Would the mother ‘sacrifice’ her own life?
Would the abortion doctor ‘sacrifice’ his own life?
Would the people screaming about ‘pro-choice’ sacrifice their own lives?
No — they only want the defenseless child in the womb to be sacrificed!
What’s next, following this logic?
“We can kill our teenage son, because he’s driving us nuts?”
“We can execute our two year old daughter, because she’s depriving us of sleep at night?”
If human being are inconvenient, well then…!!!
There have been several pro-life leaders who have sacrificed their own lives for the unborn!
God bless, yours in Their Hearts,

The SF Chronicle recently carried the first editorial in decades suggesting that abortion “rights” may be threatened, so the Death-eaters are feeling some heat. The last dumbest argument (#1) is pure Nazi: unborn children as untermenschen at the disposal of the woman. It is the most appalling, and yet may be the hardest to crack among the elite, since it resonates with their other arrogant notions of entitlement.
On. No. 7.(“White people are trying to prevent abortion to build up the [white] race”), Cal Catholic types all know the truth regarding the high rate of black/African-American abortions and the Margaret Sanger-type goal for race supremacy. But has anyone noted that throughout the 90’s and 2000’s, the US black population was regularly quoted as being either 15% or 16% of the general population? Yet now the intelligentsia-class that gives us the news (NPR, MSNBC, ABC, etc) has begun regularly pronouncing that the US black population ratio is “12%”. Has no one but us noticed that the old devil herself, Margaret Sanger, has succeeded in her goal of declining the population of black Americans? US black Americans have dropped in number from nearly 1 in 6 members of the population to 1 in 8…and I suspect the actual number is precipitously fewer..
Steve: Could the different statistics represent disagreement on the counting of multiracial people? Obama is biracial, but counts himself “black”, while Tiger Woods calls himself “multiracial”.
In reply to Tom Byrne, I dont know why the quoted numbers by the intelligentsia-media has changed, but it is notable: if it is a re-definition of statistics, I would think that the Al Sharptons and the Jesse Jacksons (and Obama for that matter) would want their identity group to be larger, not smaller. However, in the 90’s and 2000’s, black Americans were always “narrated” as being 15-16% of the population. And now, NPR especially, these types call the ratio 12%. Wow. 4% drop. Chalk it up to the old devil (I mean Margaret Sanger, there could be confusion in some of the names I mentioned, and I dont want a drone flying over my house..)
In regards to men “…don’t deserve to have a voice in abortion…”
50% of those aborted are male.
Abortion decisions affect mother, father, child, the people who perform the abortion as well as the society that supports it….
Women choose abortion out of fear. Fear of failing, fear of losing their own selves to another, fear of difficulties, even fear of babies. Fear is useless; what is needed is trust.
First, careful folks, you’re being monitored that you don’t go over your allotted number of words; O darn, I just reduced my allottment by 24. Oh well, better luck next time. God Luv ya, Markrite
Contra the claim that men have no right to speak about abortion the article says: “And meanwhile, anyone who isn’t black can’t speak about slavery, and anyone who isn’t Jewish can’t talk about the Holocaust. Right? It’s the same logic, after all.”
Actually, that argument is a little off. Pro-aborts argue that women benefit from abortion and that only women should be allowed to have an opinion on it. But blacks did not benefit from slavery and Jews did not benefit from the holocaust.
The argument should really read something like: “And meanwhile, anyone who isn’t a slave owner can’t speak about slavery, … Right? It’s the same logic, after all.”
