somewhat compelling argument, but still fallacious. For now, we will NOT be able to sell the complete PRO LIFE platform to the people, but also it is only fair to permit, as in the case of [legitimate] rape, the CHOICE to the victim... anything else is not only un-American, but un-Christian.... That is not to say that we should not encourage even those who were so victimized to not throw the baby out with the bathwater.... Stating it alternatively, AND WITHOUT IN ANY WAY DENIGRATING THE ISSUE OF LIFE, i just do not see God REQUIRING each and every one who was legitimately voiolated in this way to "keep" the "fruit" of the crime... As O'Reilly says, where am I going wrong...?

Imagine for a moment that your home is invaded by thugs who will do harm to your family, or perhaps even kill them. But then one of them takes a look at your three children and offers you a sinister Faustian bargain: pick one to die and the others will be allowed to live.

Would you helplessly choose one of your own children to die so that the other two may live? Would you trust a person whose moral conscience is so far gone to even offer such a deal to live up to his end of it?
