‘Trans’-Cultism and Sex-Selection Abortions

Reading articles like this about sex-selection abortions from the Illinois Family Institute’s Laurie Higgins makes me wonder — how is it that we are losing the information war? I’m reminded of Jon Lovitz imitating Michael Dukakis in the 1988 presidential date — “I Can’t Believe I’m Losing To This Guy.” We should NOT be losing.

Here is Laurie Higgins:

Anti-truth claims will always collapse into incoherence and self-contradiction, if not under the weight of the individual and cultural destruction that follows in their wake. Let’s look at the confluence of several “progressive” anti-truth claims and the intellectual and moral incoherence that results from embracing them:

1.)  “Progressives” claim that the product of conception between two humans is not, in reality, a person while in the womb.

2.)  Progressives” claim that objective, immutable biological sex has no relevance to either “gender” or “gender identity,” and no inherent meaning. “Gender” in their view is the aggregate of arbitrary socially-constructed roles, behaviors, activities, and attributes that societies associate with biological sex. “Gender identity” is one’s internal sense of being male or female.

3.)  While rational people recognize that doctors identify or confirm the sex of humans at birth, “progressives” claim that doctors “assign” or “designate” the “gender” of humans at birth. (Do doctors really “assign” social conventions to newborns? Hmmm…)

4.)  “Progressives” believe that “gender identity” supersedes in value, importance, and cultural relevance both “gender” (i.e., arbitrary socially-constructed conventions) and biological sex. “Gender identity” beats the non-gendered leg coverings off both sex and “gender.”

Since in the dystopian and incoherent world of “progressivism” (heavily laced as it is with radical subjectivism), the product of conception between two humans is not a person while residing in the womb, there is no moral reason to oppose having it killed. There is no more reason to oppose injecting digoxin into the hearts of womb-inhabiting non-persons (who oddly have human DNA and a sex) than there is to oppose the killing of a parasite that is feeding off the bodies of human hosts—you know, like the guinea worm.
