Overview

Abortion is Not Logical by E. Reltso

Arguments in favor of abortion are humorously exposed as illogical, by way of compelling (but rather bizarre) examples, logical reasoning and historical/legal research. Justifications for abortion which are shot down in this volume are: the 'right' of privacy; the assertion that 'it's my body and I can do what I want with it;' in vitro fertilization; social problems allegedly linked to fertility; the fallacy that unsafe abortions will occur if abortion is not legalized; and more.

Well, we are all entitled to our own opinions, however hilariously stupid they apppear to an educated person. Another throw-away book.

The author somehow believes that a plethora of weak metaphors equate to a valid logical argument.

This book was pretty good. The author presented logical arguments for the most part, and she didn't really bring religion into the argument, which is good in my opinion because I think the religious aspect of Pro-life organizations and writings turn some people away from truly thinking the arguments through. All in all, I would recommend the book, whether your Pro-lif or Pro-choice.

I can't help but notice the silly things people say about the book, and to be honest those reviews just make me like the book even more! Here are three such negative reviews, with my responses: "Well, we are all entitled to our own opinions, however hilariously stupid they apppear to an educated person. Another throw-away book." People may be entitled to stupid views, but stupid beliefs don't merit our respect. And when those beliefs are /dangerous/, they should be rooted out from society by rational persuasion (not violence, lest anyone think I would say we should hurt people who happen to hold extreme views). "The author somehow believes that a plethora of weak metaphors equate to a valid logical argument." Mr. Reltso obviously used more than /just/ weak metaphors, and anyone who actually read the book would know better than to give that impression. He also gives some analysis. "Absolute drivel." It's all too easy to write off another person's thought about an issue without addressing it at all. There was ample space to give an example or two of what's wrong with the book. I probably would have given this only one star, if not for silly comments. I have problems of my own with the book. First, Reltso doesn't seem to realize that abortion exists /because/ of our contraceptive mentality, which also fuels our modern attitudes towards homosexual marriage and extramarital sex. Of course, if he had argued against contraceptives in the book, he probably would have received more thoughtless responses about how poorly done it is, assuming the reviewers are responsible enough to read before posting. Second, he could have given a more thorough treatment of some of the arguments he wanted to address. For example, in chapter seven, he discusses in vitro fertilization, and makes a passing remark to how the practice makes human life into some medical commodity, rather than the precious thing both sides claim it is. It would have been great to look more into that concern! How does it impact policies on human cloning, for example? The subject of abortion will naturally influence our views on everything else, if we're consistent about it. In fact, I think exploring these common concerns would have been more effective than the examples he gives elsewhere in the book. Third, I think the book could have been better organized. As the claim is that abortion is not logical, it would be good to break each argument given down into its basic premises before hand, and then address them individually.

This book takes all the pro-choice logic and follows it to it's insane end. It is short and snarky enough to hold anyone's attention. The only thing I found missing was from the abuse/poverty argument. I would have loved for him to point out that child abuse stems from having no value for human life. Therefore, legalized abortion contributes to this problem rather than helping to stop it- as pro-choicers claim. When you teach the world that life is not sacred, you cannot be upset when people treat life as if it is not sacred.

Is killing a baby. If you believe killing is wrong, you should be against abortion. If you say fertilized eggs are not humans, then you are wrong. Those fertilized eggs just have not yet grown limbs. But if you let them, they will. If you let them continue growing, they will eventually become an adult. An abortion stops that chance. This is simple logic, yet many do not understand. I am a feminist. Abortion is not "the right to chose." If you not want a baby, do not have a baby. What about rape, you may ask? I am a woman and I think that women should learn to protect themselves from rape. (it would also be wonderful if RAPISTS DIDN'T RAPE)

I enjoyed the logic of it. There is a chapter in which parts have been blacked out that is a little annoying.

Love this!!!! I am certainly pro-life and if there's one thing that knocks me off my chair its the right to abort babies.
