Okay, since people in the reviews were saying that the unborn babies killed in abortions could also be dangerous people and stuff other than curing cancer and things, I reply like this:
The point is, you don't know what they will be, maybe a bad person, maybe a good person. So let them live and find out. They have free will, they can be whoever. It's not a guarantee that they will not be cruel and mercifulness, but at least you aren't from killing them when they were innocent.
Again, take in the story for its overall meaning. I know there are more ingredients than egg and milk to a cake. That is obvious. But for this situation, just pretend those are the only ingredients. Can you do that? Just like most of you wouldn't be jealous of the man who cured cancer; the point was you were going to kill the man at an earlier stage, and that was supposedly alright because he wasn't born yet. Here we go:
Imagine you want to bake a cake. There are two ingredients you need; an egg, and milk. When you combine these two ingredients in an oven, with time and heat, you make a cake. Do you call the milk, cake? No, because milk is milk. Do you call the egg, cake? No, because an egg is an egg, nothing more, nothing less. It's only when you combine them together that they are called a cake. What about the cake batter? Is it cake? Well, it's the combination of the milk and egg, it just hasn't been baked. It's cake in an earlier stage, it just needs time to bake, then it's nice and fluffy and tasty, if you bake it right. It's called cake batter, isn't it?
Sometimes there are flaws in the cake, like it's lopsided or a little undercooked, but it's still cake, and it still tastes good. But when exactly do you call the cake, cake? Is it when you mix the ingredients? Is it one minute of baking? Ten minutes of baking? Right after you pull it out of the oven? Pulling it out of the oven sounds logical, but why is it just suddenly called a cake, just because it's pulled out of the oven? I mean, two seconds beforehand, when it's already fully baked, but still in the oven, it's the exact same as two seconds later, so why isn't it called cake then? There is no significant change, except when you mix the two ingredients. Then, it's called cake, or uncooked cake, or cake batter. They are all the same. It's cake at an earlier stage. It's cake at every stage as soon as you mix the ingredients.
What about whose milk you put in it? Let's say you accidentally added 2 milk instead of vitamin D milk. Does that make the cake taste terrible? Is it such a difference that it's not worth baking? No, it's still a cake, no matter what kind of milk it is.
But let's say you have an egg, and you don't want a cake. You leave the kitchen and come back to find someone you know had mixed your egg with their milk and put the batter in the oven. You are on a diet, and cannot eat this cake, and you don't crave the cake either. Neither does the person who mixed the ingredients want the cake. So, what do you do? You could take it out of the oven and waste a perfectly good cake, or, you could let the cake bake in your oven until it's cooked completely, then give it to your neighbor who would love to have that cake. Someone out there is dying to eat a cake, why not give it to them, instead of wasting it? Why not give that cake a chance to be eaten, a chance to show how tasty it is?
Sorry, no one final question this time, just a translation of the top paragraphs with what I'm talking about.
Imagine you want to learn about the formation of a baby. There are two things you need; a human egg, and sperm. When you combine these two sexual cells in a person, with time and patience, you make a fully developed baby. Do you call the sperm, a baby? No, because sperm is sperm. Do you call the human egg, baby? No, because an egg is an egg, nothing more, nothing less. It's only when you combine them together that they are called a baby. What about the unborn baby? Is it a baby? Well, it's the combination of the sperm and egg, it just hasn't been developed. It's a baby in an earlier stage, it just needs time to develop, and then it has feelings and a personality and all the other basics of a born baby, if you let it. It's called anunborn baby, isn't it?
Sometimes there are flaws in the baby, like it has aids or is paralyzed, but it's still a baby, and it still has feelings and has rights. But when exactly do you call the baby, a baby? Is it at the moment of conception (sperm and egg cell unite)? Is it one month of developing? Ten weeks of developing? Right after it is born out of the mother? Born out of the mother sounds logical, but why is it just suddenly called a baby just because it's born out of the mother? I mean, two seconds beforehand, when it's already fully developed, but still in the womb, it's the exact same as two seconds later, so why isn't it called a baby then? There is no significant change, except at conception. Then, it's called a baby, or human or unborn child, or fetus. They are all the same. It's a baby at an earlier stage. It's a baby at every stage as soon conception.
What about the father of the baby? Let's say you were raped by a stranger now instead of a husband years from now. Does that make the baby evil or unworthy of life? Is it such a difference that it deserves to die? No, it's still a human, a baby, no matter who's the father or mother.
But let's say you are able to get pregnant, and you don't want a baby. Yet you sleep with your boyfriend or someone and get pregnant. You do not want this baby, and cannot afford to keep this baby, and you don't want a baby any time soon. Neither does your boyfriend or whoever who had sex with you want the baby. So, what do you do? You could kill your child, while it's helplessly connected to you, or, you could let it live and grow inside you until it's completely formed, then give it up to someone who would love to have that child. Someone out there is dying to have a baby, why not give it to them, instead of killing it? Why not give that child a chance to live, a chance to show what he or she can do in this world?
Wow, that was my best Imagine story yet! Please pro-choice people, do you understand what I'm saying? Do you know now how morally wrong abortion is now, because of this metaphor? If not, then I will pray for you, for hope in understanding.
Thank you for reading this chapter,
