I am not suggesting that Christians should be pro-abortion. In contrast, all Christians should be and perhaps are obliged to be pro-life. What I am asking is weather the term pro-life has been successfully hijacked and thus devoid of any real meaning or ability to advance the cause. I believe and from what I’ve observed, the pro-life side has largely won the argument as to when life begins. We have finally started advancing legislation through the states that challenges Roe V Wade instead of merely trying to mitigate it. In response to these victories, the pro-abortion side has resorted to a no true Scotsman fallacy.
Now what do I mean by that? Well a no true Scotsman fallacy is hard to explain without an example so let me give you one. It’s when people try to say that you cannot be pro-life and not support a welfare state, death penalty, Medicare for all, open borders, etc. They’re trying to create a new definition of pro-life that excludes the well-established qualities of what it means to be in this group in the first place. Pro-life has always been defined as people who believe in abolishing abortion and physician assisted suicide. No more no less.
Despite this, why do we find ourselves in a position where a logical fallacy is winning? And the answer is that many people call themselves pro-life because there’s money to make in being pro-life. The March For Life that happens every year only exist so that there will be another March for Life the following year. You can look at their website and see that their accomplishments are all related to the March For Life. None of them are legislative accomplishments and they don’t even pretend to take credit for the state victories. And the National Right to Life is the same. They are a scam as well as they are basically Mitch McConnell’s super PAC. Now combine this with a lot of evangelical organizations that are embracing critical race theory and intersectionality organizations like The Gospel Coalition and the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission who gladly expand the definition of pro-life to guilt evangelicals into supporting socialist policies.
The supposed allies of the pro-life cause are surrendering this fight. They have given so much ground on what it means to be pro-life that it would be a great distraction to the cause to reclaim this ground, this definition, and so I’ve been pondering that we should surrender the definition in favor of a new word. Let us call ourselves anti-abortion or abolitionist as the term pro-life is bogged down in fallacious debate.
Let us be clear that the end goal of this cause is for an unborn child to have their right to life legally protected. Let us be clear about the end goal of the cause that is to abolish and criminalize abortion and not just for the doctor who performs it but those who seek it. This is the logical conclusion for those who believe that moral personhood occurs in the womb. And I don’t think we should run from it. I don’t think we need to hide behind oblique terms like pro-life. I think it’s about time we just be forthright with Americans about what we believe. And I’m tired of those who call themselves pro-life using our beliefs as a whipping post to get us to support immoral policies. I’m uninterested in being pushed around by those who lack conviction to stand firm behind a righteous cause and instead succumb to the pressures of Moloch.
Patriots stepping up to save independent media from COVID-19 woes
We were on the verge of a disastrous end, but you guys have been stepping up big time. We’re almost there.
This year has been a roller-coaster ride for tens of millions of Americans. We’ve experienced the hardest economic downturn in history thanks to the coronavirus lockdowns and many are still trying to recover. We’re among them. Despite record-breaking surges in traffic, our revenue has fallen dramatically. It’s strange knowing that we’re working harder and getting the truth out to more people, yet revenue on the site plummeted.
We have called on our patriotic readers and podcast listeners to pitch in what they can to help. The outpouring of support has been tremendous and extremely humbling. As a conservative, I have a hard time “begging” for funds to keep our news outlet running, but COVID-19 lockdowns and subsequent reduction of revenues have made it necessary. Nevertheless, the last month has shown us that patriots appreciate pro-American news as a contrast to the anti-American mainstream media outlets spreading lies incessantly.
We asked for help and you guys have been delivering. We raised over $3200, enough to keep us going for the rest of August and part of September! I cannot stress how much of a blessing this has been for not only NOQ Report as an organization but also for my family. This isn’t a hobby; we operate NOQ Report and all of the podcasts associated with it as a more-than-full-time job. Every day we’re producing tons of content and spreading the truth that mainstream media refuses to report. Even when they do report it, they do so with a leftist slant while pretending to be unbiased. We do not use subterfuge. We are unabashedly conservative in our opinion but the news we report is factual. It all comes from a conservative, America First perspective, but we do not lie.
This isn’t about propaganda. If it were, we would be no better than the mainstream media outlets we abhor. Instead, we focus on the truth because we know that being honest gives us credibility. Besides, conservatives almost always have the truth on our side.
The best way NOQ Report readers can help is to donate. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well. We need approximately $8,300 to stay afloat for the rest of 2020, but more would be wonderful and any amount that brings us closer to our goal is greatly appreciated.
The second way to help is to become a partner. We’ve strongly considered seeking angel investors in the past but because we were paying the bills, it didn’t seem necessary. Now, we’re struggling to pay the bills. This shouldn’t be the case as our traffic the last year has been going up dramatically. June, 2018, we had 11,678 visitors. A year later in June, 2019, we were up to 116,194. In June, 2020, we had 614,192. We’re heading in the right direction and we believe we’re ready to talk to patriotic investors who want to not only “get in on the action” but more importantly who want to help America hear the truth. Interested investors should contact me directly with the contact button above.
Election year or not, coronavirus lockdowns or not, anarchic riots or not, the need for truthful journalism endures. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report going.
