Quick Saying about Abortion

Not sure where I heard this before or if this is the exact quote, but I think it's a good thing to think about in relation to abortion:

If abortion is not murder, no explanation is necessary.
If abortion is murder, no explanation is sufficient.

Sometimes abortion advocates will use the so-called "difficult cases" to argue that abortion should be legal. But, if abortion is not killing a baby, and it is just a clump of cells that is being extracted, no explanation is necessary. People have warts removed all the time and do not feel the need to explain it to others. They certainly don't use rape or incest as an argument to keep wart removal legal.

On the other hand, admitting that the baby in the womb is a real person, then no explanation will suffice in the taking of an innocent life. This would be no different than killing a 3-year-old because the mother was raped.

I believe this is a quick and effective saying.
