Abortion is worse than pedophilia

“The right to life is the first among human rights.”
– Pope Francis

Abortion is worse than pedophilia. It’s not even a maybe. Abortion is worse than pedophilia.

The two share much in common. They are both highly self-centred acts lacking in all compassion for the innocent. They both serve the purely selfish desires of the individual. They both involve defenceless children. They are both acts of extraordinary depravity. And they are both irreversible.

What distinguishes the two rests very much in the latter commonality. While they are both irreversible, only abortion has absolute permanence.

A child who has been abused can still have a life full of meaning and happiness. He or she can never erase the memory of what happened, but they can find peace in the same way as a loving parent who has lost a child, or a soldier who has returned from war, can. They can appreciate the beauty of every day; they can smile; they can laugh; they can have a family of their own which they can protect, and to which they can bring joy. Once they find peace, they can help others like themselves have it, too. In the end, their life can have more meaning than ours.

The victims of abortion can do none of these things. They see the light of day only once, as it shines through the warmth and security of their mother’s womb. It is the only light they will ever see. Before they experience life’s incredible joys, they are literally tortured to death, and by the one person who nature has entrusted to protect them. Unlike the abused child, there is no coping mechanism for what happens to them. There is no way out. They can’t scream, nor can they tell anyone about it. They suffer an assault unlike any we can empathise with, and all at the will of a mother who loves herself more than she loves them.

The true disparity rests in their respective psyches. The pedophile knows what he does is wrong, so he hides his sin, shameful of the desire which he fulfils. He knows his own self-centredness, and he knows serving it to be immoral.

The mother who aborts her child wears a smile cloaked under the veil of ‘choice’. She declares her own freedom and gluttonises her own selfish desires. She finds support in those as immoral as herself, and together they fight for a world in which morality is nothing more than the fulfilment of their own wants.  The mother does not share the pedophile’s shame, nor does she recognise her own sin. Instead, she tells the pedophile that fulfilling his selfish desires is wrong, and she calls him immoral. Hypocrite!

The pedophile who recognises his sin can be helped. The woman who calls her evil good can never be helped. She, more than any other, is destined for spiritual damnation.

    Glad to see you finally write about this topic.
    The amount of mental gymnastics that “pro-choice” people use to justify their actions would be laughable if it weren’t so tragic, and the fact that they’ve bizarrely managed to convince much of the public that abortion is a moral “right” is incredibly disturbing.
    Also, at the rate our societies are going, it’s really only a matter of time before pedophiles no longer “hide their sins,” and they too “declare their own freedoms and gluttonize their selfish desires.” What do you think, another twenty years? Or is that too high? Maybe ten?
    Right truly has become wrong, and wrong has become right.

      At a time when the selfish were not the majority it was harder to get people onside with such ideals. Today, with the rise of secularism and man acting as his own law-maker, it is far easier. We need only appeal to man’s desire for absolute personal freedom. Tell him that if he agrees with you he can do what he wants, and he will grant you the same, so long as your interests do not conflict. But I know that you already know this.

      Society has already approved the greatest sin there is. The clock is ticking on everything else. 10 or 20 years? I’d say closer to 30, but who knows anymore.

        Is it not selfish for you to ask a woman to carry a child she does not want? I can and have communed with God and I assure that the way you see the world is not a way in which he would agree with. I know when you leave this life to go the next you will be the one with the unfavorable outcome.

    I am sorry that I found your site… did you ask that fetus to put its’ picture up on the internet? Big assumption that a mother does not have shame but a pedophile does? Toma you really need to stop the scary generalizations /conclusions? Have you ever been abused, a pedophile, a pregnant women, and an aborted fetus? Probably not… I know that what i say clearly won’t matter; but maybe your options are hurtful and bigot-like. I am sure the pope and Jesus would be so proud :)

      Actually they would agree that abortion is worse than pedophilia. Catholics widely consider it the worst of all sins.

      I greatly appreciate it when comments are relevant to the articles, as opposed to being about me. I would very much like to know your thoughts on why it isn’t worse than pedophilia.

        I thought not accepting the holy spirit was the worst of all sins. Isn’t that what your fairy tail says? Mathew 12:31 So I tell you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven, but blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven.

        All sins are weighed equally in gods eyes. It is us humans who place weight on which we consider worse. In gods eyes the vast majority of us are no better than serial killers. The point is that our sins can be redeemed.

        • Nick
          June 26, 2014 at 3:34 PM #

          Yes, but sins can only be redeemed if one acknowledges one’s sins. One of the points of the article is that the pro-”choice” crowd not only refuse to see the evil of their philosophy, but they celebrate it as good and right under the guise of “choice.” And that’s just disturbing.

      I’m sorry I found his site too. I have been raped and molested and I can tell you that I would have rather been aborted than forced to go through that. I am still picking up the pieces of something that happened over 10 years ago. You know what is really messed up? I feel guilt over allowing it to happen to me! I was a child and logically I know it wasn’t my fault but feelings aren’t always logical. I have never had an abortion but I assure you if I was put in a position to consider it and went through with it I would certainly feel guilt over it. The opinions of this Toma guy are very closed minded and he is one of those people that makes me lose faith in humanity. Of course he would say the same of me.

    This article does nothing to help the cause of abortion and the image you used is inflammatory and offensive. Simple-minded tactics like comparing abortion to pedophilia is nothing but an excuse for you to feel morally superior to people who hold a different opinion than you. History teaches us that limiting access to safe abortions only leads to people seeking backdoor abortions that put the woman at serious risk. This, of course, is intentional on the part of the “pro-life” movement, which has always sought to punish women rather than protect life. If you were truly interested in saving lives and reducing the number of abortions, you would write an article about the need for expanded sexual education and increased access to affordable birth control, as these are the only things that have been proven to decrease abortion rates. Instead, you resort to this hyperbolic picket line bullshit. You are worthless as a writer and an embarrassment to the cause you’re pathetically attempting to champion.

      Decreasing abortion rates is easy. Don’t be a whore. That should result in a 95% reduction. Instead we choose to pollute our bodies and our spirits, and to then murder our own offspring. It’s a true cycle of self-centred fulfilment.

      If on the other hand we chose to actually marry who we love, and have sex afterwards, all the while appreciating the gift that it is, and the magic that stems from it, would we not be better off?

        April 15, 2014 at 2:56 AM #

        You’re comment of “Don’t be a whore” is very telling. You’re not interested in stopping abortion, but in slut-shaming. You’re uncomfortable with the idea of women who express sexuality outside of the narrow paradigm of what you see as traditional marriage. You’re a hate-filled person, who has no interest in actually trying to stop abortion, unless it’s by stopping everyone from having sex. Good luck with that, you pathetic simpleton.

        • Toma
          April 15, 2014 at 6:35 AM #

          Even more telling is your outright assumption that my use of the ‘whore’ only referred to women. That makes you a chauvinist. If men stop being whores that too will reduce abortions, will it not?

            Where did James say female slut-shaming?
            Look, humans are built for sex. I am a virgin, but I’m open to sex before marriage, with birth-control, safe-sex, and a consenting partneer.
            Abortion is completely my choice if I am with child though.
            I have anixety, and panic disorder. Also, I am not of stable economic position. If I need one, I’m getting it. I am not going to die from not being able to breathe during a panic attack based of baby worries. Though I’m also not going to deny myself pleasure.

              Quote from James: “You’re uncomfortable with the idea of women who express sexuality outside of the narrow paradigm of what you see as traditional marriage.”

              Right after the sentence about slut-shaming. No reference to men. It was strongly implied.

    Toma, you should try to get your pictures from sources that better represent what you are attacking. Judging by the specimen in the picture, less than 1% of abortions take place at the stage of development depicted.

    Also, whether or not someone is a hypocrite, in short, depends on whether or not their values are internally contradictory. You merely projected YOUR values onto the people doing the things you think are wrong, and claimed that results in a hypocrite. Of course it does! That’s a tactic anyone could use by anyone to call anyone who disagreed with them a hypocrite. (It’s a fallacious, incorrect way of thinking.) It’s simply close-minded and transparent.

    Finally, I won’t say anything detailed about how judgmental your arbitrarily prejudice is to claim anyone who gets an abortion is doing so for selfish desires. The world is not so simple that you can settle on reliable conclusions based mostly on your arbitrary preconceptions. Putting more effort into representing everything your supposedly inerrant holy book says rather than cherry picking the parts to use religion as justification for your irrational cynicism would help you find that ‘better life’ you claim a lot of other people lack.

    The difference is, the mother is a person who is conscious. The mother knows what life is and what she wants to do with it. A foetus won’t lose anything by dying because he/she never knew what life was. The brain structures and nerve-cell connections that characterize the thinking and feeling parts of the brain are not completed until between the 7th and 8th months of gestation. Only after 30 weeks do the brain waves show patterns of waking consciousness when pain can be perceived. The baby won’t lose anything since he isn’t consicous of te thing called life and he will live in a better world (since your a catholic), the mother on contrary will maybe suffer her whole life by looking at her child because his father raped her. The mother can be depressed her whole life because her child is disabled and unhappy and she can’t do anything anymore to grow in her life and the child never asked to be alive in such a condition. An unwanted child will feel the mother wanted to live her life different and will maybe suffer his whole life because of it. A child born in war or with parents who have no food will maybe live a horrible life. Sometimes its just the best for the mother AND the child (since the child doesn’t lose something he has, he doesn’t realise anything).The child has no clue of what life is and can’t think in a early stadium, he doesn’t lose anything, only the prospect of life wich he doesn’t realise. While a person who is raped has to live in a world full of uncertainty and the returning pain and he or she maybe wants to die. You can lead pain by a disease, die,…All those unpleasant things in live. A foetus will never realise those things because he never really existed as a conscious person. Thats why i choose not to have children,in this uncertain world, rather adopt. Besides, we are all already overpopulated. Indeed, people should try not to make mistakes by having safe sex, but a ‘stupid’ teenage girl shouldn’t pay a price that high for her actions, She has the right to life her live the way she wants ( with lots of love, knowledge, fun,…whatever fits for her) and she has the right to do with her body what she wants since the baby (sorry to say this) is actually just a ‘parasite’ in the beginning. Its not that she takes the life from her baby since he doesn’t really have one at that time. Its not that i’m pro abortion, its always better if the child stays alive of course, but i’m pro choice, the most important for me is that the mother makes a choice that makes her happy, since she doesn’t make her baby unhappy in a early stage by aborting it.

    There is no scientific consensus as to when human life begins. It is a matter of philosophic opinion or religious belief. Human life is a continuum—sperm and eggs are also alive, and represent potential human beings, but virtually all sperm and eggs are wasted. Also, two-thirds of human conceptions are spontaneously aborted by nature.
    Many people believe that bringing an unwanted child into the world is a crime, and that forcing a woman to have a child against her will is morally wrong. Being born is a gift and not a right.

      In other words, your definition of morality is individual-centric. It’s all about the individual, and individual “choice” and the individual getting what he or she wants based on his or her perceptions and personal definitions.
      Personally, I don’t believe that’s morality at all. In fact, I think it’s literally the opposite of what it means to be moral.
      Anything can be justified if you put the individual at the center of the justification. Name any act considered to be “evil” by most people, and I guarantee it can be “justified.” In fact, I’m pretty sure that’s what happens all the time – how many people who do “wrong” really consider themselves the “bad guy?”
      At the end of the day, debates over when “life” begins are nonsense and they’re pointless, because definitions are ultimately arbitrary, and the “pro-choice” crowd can and will always choose whichever definition suits them. Yet what they don’t realize is that the precise definition of “life” really doesn’t have anything to do with the morality of abortion and is ultimately irrelevant.
      Abortion is wrong because ninety-nine percent of the time, the mother is doing it for herself and her comfort, no matter how much she convinces herself otherwise. Taking a process that is, by definition, inherently about something more than a single individual and making it all about an individual – that is, literally, evil. For perspective, it’s the same reason that gay “marriage” is wrong – not because it will directly “destroy” society, but because it takes an institution that is inherently about more than the individual and makes it all about the individual and individual happiness based on the imposition of the will of a vocal, militant minority over the majority.
      These two examples are symptoms of what our society now values – me, me, me, above all else, and that is not a good thing, and that is what makes them wrong.
      When it comes down to it, the very fact that the center of pro-abortion ideology centers around the individual and individual “choice” above all else is how you know that it’s wrong.

        What’s wrong with individuality? I don’t think it is unmoral of me when i want to see people happy. Its the most important thing in live, being yourself, being happy, to live your life as a spiritual being connected with others or nature.Nobody is happy when they have to live in a lie. Thats what i love to do, making people happy, having deep conversations with them, show compassion to people, listen to people to understand them, learning things about psychology, develop myself and help people who are feeling very guilty because the judgemental nature of humans. I find it selfish to force someone to be unhappy because of a mistake. I know where you comming from, but what do you want then? That everyone devalues themselves and that everyone has to sacrifice themselves completely? The world would be very depressing. Everyone strives to be happy, you too. How would you feel if i denied you the right to be what you want to be? How would you feel if i told you to leave your wife because the majority of the people is gay? Not everyone has to follow the majority, you just get copies then and mainstream people, not everyone is the same; You don’t have to suffer because you’rd the majority, but gay people also deserve to be happy with a person they love like anyone wants. If people would just mind their own happiness by not trying to destroy the happiness of another person, the world would be so much better. Morality is subjective in every culture. Its wrong if you hurt anyone, but its also wrong to hurt yourself. Why would you hurt yourself then if you don’t hurt anyone by aborting a foetus? If your happy, you can make others happy, you can do things for others. if you live your life in a lie you can’t. You do more wrong than good by forcing someone to keep a child if she is raped, by making a person unhappy, while otherwise nobody would be unhappy.

      Thanks for taking the time to share your opinion in such detail. A few thoughts:

      - if consciousness is the true indicator of life, then all those poor bastard lying in vegetative states should be legally dead. The fact that so many ‘unconscious’ people regain consciousness establishes that it is not. Unless we believe that they died and came back to life.

      - how a mother chooses to respond to and raise her child is as much a choice as aborting it. If she is the victim of rape, no doubt the child could be viewed as a reminder of the trauma, but only if she takes that perspective . The consciousness you speak of permits us to choose our viewpoint.

      - if being born truly is a gift, it truly is the greatest gift of all. To give a gift of such magnitude is the greatest act of selflessness possible. To not do so is an act of selfishness beyond comparison.

        - No that poor person has had a life, so its worth fighting for. He knew people, people loved him, he loved people. But honestly,in his situation i think i wouldn’t want to be kept awake. Because i know i would never be the same and i wouldn’t be able to live my life the fulliest. Better one full live and die. I would be mad at first at my family i think for putting me trough that ordeal, altough i would be very happy to see them again and hug them. But that’s my personal opinion of course. I wouldn’t want them to sacrifice anything for me and i expect the same from others towards me. Of course i would visit often. But to stop completely living your life? Why would my live be less important than the live of that person? expecting from others to sacrifice to much is wrong, if everyone was just a little bit more responsible for his own happiness.

        - Yes but not everyone is able to do that. You wouldn’t be that happy. You wouldn’t be able to give as much to world because you’re more unhappy. You can imagine a situation where you wouldbe entirely unhappy too. Without your wife, children. Alone in a mine where you have to work 24/24. You wouldn’t be happy if i told you you were selfish by nothing it. Well, the situation is different but it can feel the same for a person who is totally not ready for a child, for a person who wants to give so much to the world but has to stay home al day. Some people just really can’t handle a child.

        - I would doubt if its a gift is all you have to do is live your live like others want it. I would be rather death than be controlled and forced to live a horrible life. You deny the gift to a possible child everyday by not making your wife pregnant again, or by using anticonception. al that semen that dies, such a waste.
