I think we need to argue against abortion on the grounds of equal protection under the law. I would begin with the right to life of the human in the womb, but to reach the legalists I would say the law does not grant equal protection. When a woman wants an abortion because she's not ready to be a mom, she can abort even when the father says he's ready to be a dad. When a man wants the woman to have an abortion because he's not ready to be a dad, he cannot legally force her to get an abortion. Moreover, he is required to pay child support, even when he didn't want a child.

Then there's the woman's right to kill the human in her womb if she wants to, and for any reason at all. It is not manslaughter if she does it accidentally, nor is it homicide if she does it on purpose. But if someone causes that human in her womb to die either accidentally or on purpose, that person is charged with either manslaughter or murder, even if the woman was on her way to get an abortion. How is this equal protection under the law? A law that allows two opposing outcomes of justice depending upon the whim of the woman is not a morally sound law.

At least Toure is honest.

On the 40th anniversary of Roe vs. Wade, the MSNBC commentator literally thanked God and country for abortion. Fifteen years ago, he was in a “committed relationship” with a woman “who I knew was just not the one.” As Toure explained:

“She got pregnant, and I was terrified…I knew that pregnant woman and I were not going to be able to form a lasting family. She decided it was best to have an abortion and days later she did, we did, and in some ways that choice saved my life. I remain committed to being pro-choice...
