  •  James, you are parroting (9+ / 0-)

    The point is that there is no countervailing presentation of sanitized abortions.  There is no general sentiment to contradict.  NO ONE is out there pumping out millions of images, songs, messages, news, movies, and games talking about how fun and cool abortion is.  Their gruesome images are only underscoring an already accepted point:  Abortion is gruesome.

    This is why they NEVER want to have arguments about out-of-womb viability, constitutional rights, health care precedents, realistic exceptions about rape and incest.  Their argument is that we don't understand the BELIEF about the sacredness of life.  We don't accept what their faith in God tells them is TRUE.  And TRUE in a sacred sense that is not amenable to parsing or nuance. IT must be ALWAYS TRUE FOR EVERYONE.  Trying to debate or rationalize LIFE (LIFE!!!) only reinforces what they think is their entire point.

    What we are saying here is that these people that like to casually talk about gun death, that like to marginalize it to things that only happen to bad people like drug dealers or are only done be a few deranged psychopaths need to be corrected.  That is factually wrong.  We do not want them to understand our faith.  We do not want them to believe in the things we believe.  We want them to see the evidence that what they are talking about is WRONG.

    When someone says they need an assault weapon with a 30-round clip because the legal 10-bullet 9mm handgun is not enough should take a look at what an untrained shooter can do to a human body with a 10-bullet 9mm handgun.

    When they say we are seeking to ban a semi-automatic AR15 rifle firing .223 caliber bullets with a 3200ft/s muzzle velocity and a realistic rate of fire of 45-55 bullets per minute (or with a bump fire attachable stock, you could get 12 bullets per second if the barrel didnt overheat) just because we think they are a "scary looking gun" and not an actual threat then they should take a good long look at Noah Pozner .
