Unwanted pregnancy is not like rape, feminists

When I engage in an abortion debate, I am sometimes gobsmacked at the stupid theory the opposition comes up with to support the killing of preborn human beings. One I have come across quite a bit in the last two years is that forcing a woman to bear her unborn child is akin to rape, when it actually isn't called rape.

Leftists are prone to that kind of verbal inflation. They take highly emotional-charged words that mean one thing and then make them mean something entirely different.

So, I feel almost dumb having to explain why forcing a woman to do nothing about her pregnancy (which is what an anti-abortion law is) is not like a rape. Christina Dunnigan gives the run-down of the arguments. Save this post for your next twitter debate.
