Pro-Lifers Can Stop Losing By Refusing To Argue On Pro-Abortion Turf

New York’s new law allowing abortion up to the moment of birth has shocked many people. It is barbaric, plain and simple. A baby born one minute could have been killed a minute before, for no other reason than a mother has a supposed right to choose.

Meanwhile, states with pro-life majorities cannot pass bills that restrict abortion past 20 weeks, regulate abortion clinics, or require an ultrasound. The simple fact is that the pro-life movement is losing the argument.

The two main reasons pro-life voices are losing are, first, they accepted legal half-measures for expediency, but in doing so, undermined the foundational argument for life. Second, they largely accept the moral logic of the pro-abortion world in how they speak. In both cases, pro-life people are fighting on pro-choice turf. They need to stop.

The Legal Claims

Most legal attempts today to curb abortion merely restrict when a woman can get an abortion, and this is where the pro-life movement has erred. Any argument that abortion should not be legal in only one part of a pregnancy, even with a detectable heartbeat, is an argument that abortion can be legal in another. This means abortion might be made less possible, but it accepts that it will always be allowed.
