The Polk County Democrats shared the following image on their Facebook page on Saturday. It’s an image of a protest and the “message” is “men unhappy being told what to do with their bodies.”

There’s obviously one big, obvious, glaring difference between what is being protested in this photo and the comparison to the pro-abortion movement protests.

These men are being forced by government to stay home, presumably. They’re not showing up at a Capitol building to demand a right to kill someone else. They’re simply showing up to stand for basic, God-given constitutional freedoms that many believe are being restricted during the current COVID-19 crisis.

It is cliche, but it is also true. I don’t know how I could possibly break this concept down any simpler than this, but I’ll try…

Let’s say there’s a woman who is 16 weeks pregnant. Most states protect both her and her unborn baby, meaning if a drunk driver would slam into her car as she pulls into the Planned Parenthood parking lot for her abortion and the accident would result in the death of the unborn baby, the driver would be held accountable for that loss of life.

If the mother is also killed, then that driver is held accountable for the loss of two lives.

Two lives must equal two bodies, right?


Yet, if that mom turns safely into the Planned Parenthood parking lot, walks into the facility with an unborn baby and walks out after an abortion and no living, healthy unborn baby, one of those two lives was still intentionally exterminated, right?

However, no crime was committed.

This math simply does not add up.

But neither does this comparison.

Nobody I know of is out protesting for the right to kill anyone else in these rallies throughout American right now.

They are simply voicing support for their God-given, unalienable constitutional rights that are pretty explicitly covered in our founding documents.

And no, abortion does not fit into that category.

Life, however, does.
