"The unborn" are a convenient group of people to advocate for.

By Methodist Pastor David Barnhart:
ďThe unbornĒ are a convenient group of people to advocate for. They never make demands of you; they are morally uncomplicated, unlike the incarcerated, addicted, or the chronically poor; they donít resent your condescension or complain that you are not politically correct; unlike widows, they donít ask you to question patriarchy; unlike orphans, they donít need money, education, or childcare; unlike aliens, they donít bring all that racial, cultural, and religious baggage that you dislike; they allow you to feel good about yourself without any work at creating or maintaining relationships; and when they are born, you can forget about them, because they cease to be unborn. You can love the unborn and advocate for them without substantially challenging your own wealth, power, or privilege, without re-imagining social structures, apologizing, or making reparations to anyone. They are, in short, the perfect people to love if you want to claim you love Jesus, but actually dislike people who breathe. Prisoners? Immigrants? The sick? The poor? Widows? Orphans? All the groups that are specifically mentioned in the Bible? They all get thrown under the bus for the unborn.Ē

3. As George Carlin put it about these people, '"if you are pre-born, you are

golden. I f you are pre-school, you are fucked."
