One things all these angry, screaming feminists don’t seem to understand, and never have done so, is that America already had an “argument” much like the one they’re fomenting and the outcome was bloodily decided. They just refuse to understand that they’re likely on the wrong “right” side of history when it comes to killing their unborn children aka abortion.
We’ve heard and read time and time again how the South claimed – and many Southerners still claim to this day – that their secession from the Union, which sparked the Civil War, was predicated upon States’ Rights and the Federal Government’s infringement thereupon. And, in all truth, that is an accurate claim. However, the only States’ Right so violently in contention was the right for citizens to own Blacks as chattel slaves.
And now and in recent times we’ve heard and read time and time again how Women’s Rights are being stripped from them. And, again, it is a single right that is in violent contention – their right to have an abortion for any reason or no reason at all.
Not a very great deal of difference between the two positions since they’re predicated upon the victims of that right not inherently being persons. Both the slaveholders of the 19th Century and Feminists of today strongly believe that their rights trump the basic rights of the victims… who, as they aren’t considered persons, can’t be victims in the first place, merely property to disposed of at will.
OK, there is one significant difference. In the South it was illegal for a master to deliberately kill their slaves except for a small number of reasons, and a few – I believe 4 – masters were tried, convicted, and executed for it. That’s right; the South granted more legal right to life to their property than Feminists acknowledge for their children.
Hence, Feminists really need to consider that they may well be on the wrong right side of history in a many we’ve seen and dealt with before. I doubt it’s a history that they really want to repeat.
