This clever meme is circulating on Facebook, but it falls short. Here is a more appropriate comparison.
Abortion is actually like falling into the water with an innocent child and using him as a flotation device. He dies, while you manage to climb back on shore and dry off.
You do this even while there is a dock just a few feet away which can provide safe harbor until you are able to not only ensure the child's survival but your own.
Rather than teaching people how to jump with both feet into the treacherous waters as adolescents, along with the often ineffectual life jackets that are notoriously misused by children and adults, we should teach them to avoid the rapids until they are able to swim more effectively, and preferably with a buddy.
A committed buddy, who would sacrifice their own life for yours.
As in, marriage.
Finally, if you and the child were pushed into the water through no fault of your own, please return to the top of this post and reread.
