"Good deeds do not require long statements; but when evil is done the whole art of oratory is employed as a screen for it. (Thucydides)"
Actually, Thucydides wasn't referring to abortion, but his aphorism fits the abortion debate to a tee.
What we see in the pro-abortion argument is a tsunami of sophistry-- the euphemism of "pro-choice" to describe the killing of a child who is denied the fundamental choice of life, idiot assertions that human embryos 'aren't really human beings', the unmoored insistence that "a woman has the right to control her own body" (she does, unless she is killing someone), analogies between being pregnant and being tethered to an elderly violinist on dialysis, the bizarre insistence that a procedure that isn't successful unless someone dies is "health care", and the chant that the primary method of femicide in the world today-- abortion-- is essential to protect women's rights (sex-selective abortion has killed 100 million girls in Asia over the past few decades).
Killing children in the womb is wrong. The elaborate oratory to the contrary is a screen for evil.
