War Between the Fetus


Let's say half of the states in America want abortion to remain legal.

And half of the states in America think it's literally a crime against humanity and try to pass federal laws to make it illegal. So, the half that want abortion to remain legal decide to secede from the Union, rather than remain under a statist regime that ignores the rights of the states.

The other states, determined to preserve the Union at all costs decide that engaging in battle against these states is the only remaining option.

Is this war justified?

If not, then are you prepared to defend the Confederacy as well?

Do you have any statistics on this? I'd be curious to know which states are generally more pro-choice vs. pro-life. Is it straight up blue states vs red states?

Sabai said...

this is simply a thought exercise to prove a different point.

but, i would guess that red states are more likely to put abortion restrictions up for vote.

Again, I grew up near Lisle so I'm not really sure what your question is. But I don't see anyone going to war over abortion. I think America is too complacent to ever go to war over an ideological issue (and I'm not saying that is a bad thing). A financial issue on the other hand...

ok, this is frustrating that noone's picking up on the analogy i'm trying to make. anyone???

The Great I'm Not said...

nah i get it, civil war. its not a perfect analogy by any means though. bobby said it right, the US today would never go to war on ideology.

Sabai said...

sigh. that's the point. That's why (i thought) it was a good analogy.

Noone would argue for that war to happen today, and yet defending the rights of Southern states today means you're a racist.

the typical defense of the civil war was an ideological one.

The Great I'm Not said...

I would argue going to War to preserve the union, not on the basis of pro-choice vs pro-life. The typical ideological defense for the Civil War is one that stems from lack of understanding. I'm still not convinced that the South had any right to secede.

Who knew there was a recent post about secession?

you spend quite a bit of time doing research on 43 presidents, and some things stick in your mind. :)
