The inconsistencies in Ben Carson’s pro-life views have been a fairly hot topic in the alternative news. Surely leftists (including the republican establishment) will use this to stick a fork into his candidacy.
The truth is that virtually all pro-life people have inconsistencies in their views. We have grown up in a culture which has a very utilitarian view towards human life, so that becoming respectful of life requires a good deal of research, thought and energy. Becoming more consistently pro-life is a process. Ben Carson, a neurosurgeon, probably ignored reproductive medicine and developmental biology most of the time.
Medicine has been impeded by the birth control and abortion scam since the beginning of time. Before the birth control hormones and abortion pills, herbs and various poisons were used.
False claims touting the reliability of these modalities encouraged alterations in people’s sex behaviors, to the extent that they thought they could separate sex and reproduction. Societies have been bamboozled by a myriad of false medical claims, Many of these affected mainstream medical practice in ways that would astonish you. Recent retractions of prior medical dogma have changed the way hypertension is treated, and which dietary modifications are needed for weight loss or cardiovascular health. Likewise, the birth control practices have been codified and entrenched based upon claims and assumptions which are simply not true. None of the birth control methods and drugs work as well as touted in actual use. Many, especially morning after pills, have become an under dose as the average size of women has grown larger. To alter the dose would bring huge research and regulatory costs to the manufacturer. It’s cheaper to bring a me-too or a generic drug to market.
Chemical birth control has become an abortion selling scam, and a war on women conducted for profit. People need to face the fact that reproductive activity causes babies.
Those who see human life as the most valuable thing will move further to the pro-life side as they do research and are forced to think about the issue harder. Politicians should not necessarily be excoriated as they think out loud about being pro-life. Many politicians who claimed to be pro-life have not lived up to their promises. We should be looking at the candidates who have not been bought out by special interests, and whose personal honor is linked to keeping their word. If those kinds of candidates pledge specific pro-life actions, (such as de-funding abortion sellers, and protecting pro-life health care, religious and business practice.) maybe they are the ones to support. With that kind of help the grass roots pro-lifers could defeat the abortion disease.
