The pro-life position isn’t one of ‘force’. It’s one of of non-violence.
The pro-life position is not one of force or coercion; the principle undergirding opposition to abortion is the recognition that violence against innocent human life is inherently unjust. Abortion is — quite literally — violent force used against a human being in the womb. Laws that protect preborn babies from abortion do not “force women to give birth”; they protect a defenseless human being from being forcibly starved to death, dismembered by suction or forceps, and thrown away as medical waste.

The weakness of the pro-abortion argument that pro-lifers are “forcing women to carry to term” can be seen in their callous capitalizing on pregnant survivors of rape. One pro-abortion writer objects to “the inherent cruelty of forcing survivors of rape or incest to carry their fetuses to term, some of whom are likely very young women.” His concern for the young victims of these crimes does not, apparently, extend to those who are ignored and further victimized by the abortion industry.  Click here for more.
