Two Choices in the Life Debate
Scott Roeder, heinous murderer, was rightly convicted of Murder One today. I’d have voted for conviction, without giving it a second thought.
And it’s interesting: there are two positions when it comes to the sanctity of life. One position holds that it is not acceptable for one person to take the life of another person without the consent of the other person. This is the pro-life position, and I am pro-life. The other position holds that one person ought to have the right to unilaterally choose to end the life of another person without the other person’s consent. This is the “pro-choice” position. People who believe that they ought to have the prerogative to chooose to end the life of an unborn child are labeled pro-choice. Scott Roeder believes that he had the prerogative to choose to end the life of George Tiller.
Ergo, Scott Roeder and abortion supporters are in the same camp. Period.
