KNOWLES: We Don't Want To See The Left Abort Their Children, Either

In today’s episode of "The Michael Knowles Show," Michael gets an interesting question in his mailbag about how abortion can get rid of liberals in the future.

When a listener identified only as "Tan" asked if abortion was "natural selection" working to "eliminate liberals from our society," Knowles responded first by sharing the simple argument that made him pro-life.

"One of the arguments that really brought me over from supporting abortion to being pro-life was from a bio-ethicist I was having lunch with and I gave all those stupid freakonomics arguments for why abortion’s great, and she said 'Which of these arguments isn’t an argument to go kill ethnic minorities in the inner cities who are young men?'" Knowles recalled.

Knowles went on to say that even if abortion is mainly used by the Left, it should still be opposed on moral grounds.

"For the Left, everything is about politics. It’s their god. It’s the god they worship. We don’t worship that god, hopefully," Knowles said. "We’ve got other things going on, so we don’t want to kill them. We don’t want to see them killed. Hope spring eternal in the human breast. Where there’s life, there’s hope and we should try to bring them up in that way we’ll have more conservatives. We’ll be able to convert them."

Next question, from Tan.

Dear Michael,

In the current climate, this might be a brave thing to ask and an even braver thing to answer, but here goes. Isn’t abortion also a natural selection type way to eliminate liberals from our society? I still feel it’s unequivocally murder and will continue to fight for their innocent lives but perhaps part of the Left’s problem is that they are okay with killing their progeny. Please just call me Tan. Thanks :)

Ok Tan. Well, all right, so you’re saying that it’s murder and then you’re saying but that’s not so bad, is it?

I don’t know (laughs), are you going to go out and murder liberals? Are you going to go and kill them?

One of the arguments that really brought me over from supporting abortion to being pro-life was from a bio-ethicist I was having lunch with and I gave all those stupid freakonomics arguments for why abortion’s great, and she said which of these arguments isn’t an argument to go kill ethnic minorities in the inner cities who are young men?

Uh, yikes, that’s tough.

So what do you think? I mean, yeah, there’s a sort of irony that these lefties who put all their hope into politics seem to be killing off their progeny, but I don’t think that’s something we should be celebrating. For the left, everything is about politics. It’s their god. It’s the god they worship. We don’t worship that god, hopefully. We’ve got other things going on, so we don’t want to kill them. We don’t want to see them killed. Hope spring eternal in the human breast. Where there’s life, there’s hope and we should try to bring them up in that way we’ll have more conservatives. We’ll be able to convert them.

One time Governor Mitch Daniels, I was talking to him, we asked, this was in 2012, we said everything is looking so bleak. Is the west over? How are we ever going to defeat the forces of leftism? And he said, "Well there are 2 ways to do it Michael. You can either persuade them, or you can out breed them, and the latter is much more fun."

Good advice. We gotta be pro-life, even if, even if I suppose we could win more elections if we slaughtered all the lefties, but I don’t think that would be a good idea.
