"When you get into a debate with an infanticide advocate."

I’ve always said that trying to converse with these people is like smoking crack, stumbling into a dark room and falling into a vat of cow manure. It’s bizarre, confusing, disturbing, gross, and a really poor way to spend your free time. You always come out of it with a horrible head ache and the lingering stench of bull sh*t in your nostrils.

Your Say

The main thing to remember when dealing with guys who are pro abortion, they fall into 3 camps.

1) guys who want to have sex without worrying about kids.
2) guys who have been raised leftist and never questioned it; true believers, red diaper types
3) guys who want to get laid and are afraid women will hate them if they change their minds on abortion.

Type 1 is unreachable because he doesn't even care about the morality or science of the matter. He's thinking with his wang and that's it.

Type 2 is unreachable because he's in a sort of insanity that only a life-changing event that forces him to rethink his worldview can reach him.

Type 3 is the most reachable and most common, but you have to be very patient, very kind, very "winsome" (an old word for being likeable, persuasive, and charming), and very honest. No yelling slogans, no cries of murder, no placards of aborted babies, just chummy down home facts and science.

Almost no one you talk to has spent five minutes of their life even examining or questioning what they believe in or know, so its like teaching them geometry to get them to examine their worldview. That takes time. Be patient and remember you're worried about the truth, not "winning" a debate.
