Pro-abortion advocates will often argue that the unborn are not “really” human. They will argue that the baby is simply the property of the mother. They will say that if you don’t like abortion, then don’t participate in it, but you shouldn’t “impose” your morality on other people. These arguments are very familiar to the trained eye. They are all the same arguments that were made in defense of chattel slavery! Join us this week as we are joined by Nicole C. Mullen and Catherine Davis to discuss these shocking parallels on Straight Talk on Life Issues.

Abortion and Slavery: History Repeats
Ever since the Roe vs. Wade and Doe vs. Bolton decisions on abortion by the US Supreme Court in 1973, spokesmen for the Right-to-Life movement have been comparing the abortion issue to slavery. They have pointed to the core analogy of legal personhood for black Americans then, and of unborn Americans today.
The 1973 decision has been compared to the Dred Scott decision of 1857. Its identical court majority of 7-2, its holdings, even the arguments justifying it then, find almost exact echoes today in the abortion decisions.
