It sickened me to read James Battle’s solution to unwanted children – kill them.

First, how does he know which children are not wanted? Second, killing babies is never a good solution to a problem.

As for his argument that men should have no say in the pregnancy decisions, that’s like saying non-Jews should not have had a say in the liberation of the Jews from Nazi Germany.

I would ask Battles, were you ever an unborn child? And if so, if it’s not OK to kill you now, why would it have been OK to kill you when you were younger?
