Afternoon gents, it’s Max from The Young Gentleman’s Guide here! So, it should come as no surprise that the pro-life vs. pro-choice argument is VERY controversial and extremely passionate on both sides, but nonetheless, it’s something I’ve been wanting to talk about for a while. This was also inspired by our admin Mary’s article about the March for Life 2020, so be sure to check that out when you’re done here.
So if any of you reading are even remotely involved in politics, you’ve likely come across an argument for or against abortion in some capacity, because like I’ve said before, it is a very hot-button issue that both sides of the political aisle get very passionate about. In the light of certain events, I thought it would be worthwhile to put in my two cents on the issue (despite how many circles on the pro-choice side will argue how men shouldn’t even have an opinion on abortion). So without any further ado, let’s get started.
So, as Mary and I have both pointed out (though Mary may be more upfront about it than me), one of the most important things that a man should do is to stand up for and defend a woman’s honor. However, it’s not just the honor of women that need protecting, it’s the honor and dignity of every man, woman, and child deserving of it, and if you ask me, no one is more deserving of it than a child who has committed literally no crime or injustice; not against his or herself, and certainly not against the mother. Speaking of which, it’s important to be compassionate towards the mother as well as the child. It’s important to remember that any expectant mother, whether the pregnancy is planned or not, is in an extremely vulnerable position and will be seeking out the best situation possible for herself and her child. As such, any gentleman worth his salt should be doing whatever possible to provide that for her, whether said woman is his sister, cousin, mother, aunt, or especially his spouse. Nowhere on the list should that include taking the life of an innocent unborn child. Even if that child was conceived through such things as rape or incest, simply ending its life won’t magically undo what happened. If nothing else, all it does is create another trauma on top of the assault responsible for her situation in the first place. Not only that, but there’s no reason why the child should have to pay the price for the sins of the father; punish the one responsible for putting the woman in such a situation, not the the mother and especially not the child. Life itself is nothing short of a miracle, and men as well as women should be doing everything in their power to defend it, no matter how big or small. In the words of the incomparable Dr. Seuss, “A person’s a person, no matter how small.”
So based on all of that, should a gentleman be pro-life? If a gentleman want to properly fulfill his duty of defending the honor and dignity of not just women, children, and life itself, then yes, he absolutely should. If you’d like to learn more about the pro-life cause from those who have much greater authority to speak about it than I do, I’ll leave some links to some the biggest pro-life advocacy groups and what they stand for. In any case, I hope you enjoyed reading today’s article.
