Why Some Women Think It’s Economically Responsible to Kill Our Kids

Ever the liberal website, Jezebel makes the argument that birth control and abortion are economic issues.  Their reasoning goes something like this:

Here’s a really important, apparently little-known fact that might blow some minds, if only it would sink in: pregnancy and childbirth cost money. A lot of it. And many, many organizations have been trying to point this out for a very long time. People’s grandmothers have already gotten headaches from banging their heads against this wall. So why the notion that women’s health is separate from “the economy” still a notion that’s given any credence whatsoever?

The author then launches into this cost estimate for raising a child, and since there are costs both for the parents and for the country, the reasoning goes, it’s an economic issue that can be solved by either preventing pregnancy from happening or removing the pregnancy if it happens.

What’s telling is the following paragraph:

Why I Would Never Be On Wife Swap

Cherry Blossom Couple HeaderI’m sure that if you haven’t ever watched a show then you’ve at least heard of the concept.  Two couples—usually from wildly different backgrounds—offer to have their wives trade places for the week.  Usually it entails the wife living under the host family’s rules for a day or so, followed by the guest implementing new rules for a day or so, then a big meet up where everyone talks about what they have learned about.

Just About Anyone Can Get On News Programs

It seems that this young man was able to get onto a Fox News program in order to share why he voted for Obama in 2008, but was now voting for Romney in 2012.  However, when he got on camera he was more interested in flirting with the interviewer than he was in Romney.  In fact, he states that he will be voting for Romney only because he lost a basketball game.

Man Buys Delorian and Takes It Out for Pictures

imageI don’t know if any of you have ever seen Back to the Future, but it makes popular a very rare car—the Delorian.  So one man actually purchased one, and he lives near by the place where the movie was filmed.

So here, in 2012, you have a Delorian parked outside of what was Doc Brown’s house, George McFly’s house, Loraine’s house (where George fell out of the tree) and the house where Marty came back to in Back to the Future 1- after he fixed his father’s mistake.

Pretty cool, in my book.

In the above image, taken from another thread on Reddit’s Atheism board, we’re supposed to laugh at the Christian that compares 9/11 to Jesus and Christianity, because “9/11 Actually Happened.”  What’s amusing to me is that this breaks one of the fundamental arguments that Atheists use to defend their case that there is no God.

What is Considered Life?

Facebook Pro-LifeI often read article and pictures on the site reddit, which has some interesting things as well as some stuff you should avoid…  One of the things I like about the site is the ability to look at and analyze the arguments of those that do not agree with us, and see insights from the other part of the culture.

I strongly believe that Christianity is the truth, and that we have answers to all of the questions that can be brought up, but unfortunately we are often ill equipped to deal with reason and logic.

So, I’ve bookmarked some of the things there, and I’ll use this blog to help you see what I’m seeing and how to deal with these types of arguments, if you so choose to do it.

They Don’t Believe It’s Not a Big Deal

The same sex marriage proponents would have you believe that it’s not that big of a deal that same sex couples are given the permission to enter into a “marriage” relationship.

One of the arguments is “it won’t affect your marriage.”  The reasoning follows the line that each person must enter the relationship themselves, and what others choose to do has no bearing on what you have chosen to do.

And it goes further to say that traditionally married couples have done more to harm marriage with divorce, annulments, etc., than permitting same-sex couples to enter into a marriage will ever do.

Let’s unpack these arguments, shall we?
