"Not an infant til it is born." Let's examine this.
Not an infant to it's born.
An unborn baby is also NOT a toddler until it can walk, nor is it a teenager until it's 13, nor is it a senior citizen until it is 65. What does this mean? What's the significance? Does it mean that babies born premature (like me) are not infants until the 9th month and therefor have their right to live subordinated? Or does it mean they are not born until the 9th month even if they are? What is the significance of a statement like this?
The significance is that euphemisms and slogans try to couch nasty little truths so that the nastiness can no longer be recognized. "A women's right to her body" is a slogan that by omission discounts another person's right to their body, as "they" are not women. Others (the non women) don't exist therefore they have no say. But this is not true. Others do exist. Be they men, other women or the littlest, weakest or most innocent among us who are dependent on others for our very lives, be they born or unborn. Just because someone is dependent on others for their existence does not make them not a person or render them dead or non existent. Many people are sick in hospitals, the elderly, people with MD, MS or Down's and many of these are absolutely dependent and can not live on their own. They may not have the same awareness or even intelligence of you or I, but we are ALL different in these regards aren't we? And, they are all human, alive and precious, just like you... All human life is.
To say "it's not an infant till it is born" or the similar oft repeated "A woman has a right to control her body" is to deny existence and preciousness of human life be it dependent, independent, young, old, helpless, defenseless, born or not born. Elizabeth Warren is sort of right, just in reverse, those slogans are products of a gone and misguided time, the sick '60's, a time of perversion, drugs, excess and serious irresponsibility (let's face it). These slogans are convenient, slick, sick, evil and twisted, yet were highly effective propaganda that conned millions for decades as it excused and absolved them of personal and moral responsibility. These slogans were convenient. These slogans are wrong and worse, are pure evil. Enough with the cognitive dissonance already....
