Huffington Post Writer: Caring About Someone Else’s Baby Isn’t Christian But Creepy

Joining other ultra-liberals like Tosh.O’s star Daniel Tosh, is the Huffington Post’s Gavin Schulman.  Apparently, making light of abortion and viewing it as comedy is now the cool thing to do.  This morning, I was appalled to find an article defending abortion on Huff Post’s comedy page.  Cause yeah, people, abortion really is comedy central.

Mr. Schulman’s favorite line in his oh-so-funny article appears to be “who cares?”  Who cares about abortion?  It’s not a big deal. I mean, come on, Americans…stop giving a rip about anyone else’s baby besides your own!  Those babies who are starving to death in Africa…stop caring!  Those babies who are being killed in India just because they’re girls…stop caring!  Those babies who are being aborted in the U.S. and around the world…stop caring!

Mr. Schulman demonstrates his abhorrent lack of care for basic human decency with this toxic paragraph:

Plus, they’re just babies. It’s not like they can do anything. They can’t even walk. They just sit there and gurgle. What good does that do anyone? And even worse, they’re other people’s babies. Isn’t that the most obnoxious kind? Who actually cares about someone else’s baby? That’s not Christian, it’s creepy. That’s not protective, it’s perverse. That’s not righteous, it’s wrong. And weird. No one should take that keen an interest in someone else’s baby. You should bop them on the nose, take a picture, and go about your day.

Whether it’s written as comedy or as a true belief, it is NOT FUNNY in the absolute least to say that people who cannot walk don’t do anyone else any good.  My husband’s best friend has a little boy who can’t walk.  I know for a fact that he does this world a WHOLE LOT of good.

Pro-abortionists need to stop thinking that the statements they make can be isolated only to unborn babies.  Science has clearly proven that human life begins at the moment of fertilization.  Therefore, these people should be willing to have the statements they make applied across humanity.

If their reasoning behind devaluing unborn babies is that they can’t walk, then voila, any human who is unable to walk has no value.  You can’t pick and choose which humans your standards apply to.  They either apply across the board or they don’t apply at all.

What’s appalling to me is that this is not an isolated view, relegated just to supposedly comedic articles.  I personally debated an avidly pro-choice “expert” on TV.  She specifically stated that one should not be considered a person unless they could walk, talk, and breathe.  And trust me, she was not joking.

Gavin Schulman also illustrates his lack of scientific education when he writes:

I‘m not here to defend abortion. In fact, I’m not here. I’m just a narrative voice. But I will use that voice to reiterate one point about abortion — who cares? It’s not your baby. And, really, it’s not even a baby. But just as I can feed my baby go-go juice and have her dance in a diaper to win a crown, you can opt to not have a baby that could someday shill for stock-trading software. Yes, as humans we should care about one another. But let’s wait on that caring until we’re humans.

His standard is that humans should care about one another once we’re humans.  However, there are two problems with his viewpoint.  First, he spends a large portion of his article detailing in a “humorous” manner how he doesn’t care about your baby one bit, and he’s clearly talking about babies who are indeed already born.  So, Mr. Schulman actually doesn’t care about humans even though he claims otherwise.

Secondly, if he would care to pick up any embryology textbook, he would find that, from the moment of fertilization, a new HUMAN life has begun.  At least the people who debate about whether or not the unborn are persons have some philosophical viewpoint to stand on (however ridiculous).  But to state that unborn babies aren’t even human?

I’m sorry, but that causes me to ask what planet Mr. Schulman was on when he went to school.  He must have been sleeping during his biology classes.  Because, you know, who cares about the facts anyway?

    Apparently, to liberals, the welfare of children overseas is important, but concern for the welfare of US children is creepy. More evidence that liberalism is a mental illness.

    I’m to the left of liberal and I agree the article you reference is creepy.

    No more baby showers, then. Who buys presents for someone’s baby before the baby’s even born? Too much interest! Creepy!

    I take it Gavin Schulman doesn’t have any children – or, at least, not any surviving, born children. By the time I was born, I’d already flown to Florida and back, spent months listening in on a fifth-grade class, and kicked to the beat at orchestra concerts.

    As for the pro-choice “expert,” one of my cousins didn’t bother to talk until she was four because her older sister could always figure out what she wanted. My fiance’s friends’ little boy talks a whole bunch, but he has a speech impediment and no one can understand what he’s saying. Kids who are born without functioning legs are apparently, never, EVER human.

    A few months ago, I was watching an old video my mom filmed of me when I was five months old. I couldn’t walk or talk at that age, but I was a smiley little kid who liked paging through books (I still love books), could reach out and grab the support structure of my baby swing and stop the swing (I’ve always had strong arms) and clearly loved my mom (I still love my mom). I guess I must’ve been a grub or something.

       He did say “But just as I can feed my baby go-go juice and have her dance in a diaper to win a crown. . . ” which I hope to God he was saying figuratively and not actually specking of his own baby. I pity any child born to this moron.

        I believe that was a reference to the show “Toddler’s and Tiaras.” And seeing as how you don’t actually know him, I would hold off the judgement. For all you know he could be a wonderful father. 

        • Guest

          That seems unlikely based on available evidence…

    Did the author get the “it takes a village” memo from Hillary Clinton??

    Okay relax with the not being able to walk thing, it was clearly a joke. It was in horrible taste, but nonetheless, it was a joke and not meant to be an actual standard of one’s value to society. That kind of reaction is why people don’t take Christians seriously.

    That being said the idea that you shouldn’t care about someone else’s child until they’re “human” (which I assume means until they are born as many pro-choice people will argue that human rights only apply to those who are born) absolutely disgusts me. It’s sickening, literally. 

    That sad thing is, though, that it is those kind of beliefs that are the reason it’s not worth arguing with people who are pro-choice in the first place. You won’t convince them you’re right through logic because they value human life differently. Instead of believing that human beings have dignity and deserve respect they believe that your rights are designated by whatever the general consensus is, usually the law.

    It sucks.

      Not sure what your basis is for asserting that the “walk thing” was a joke… The author stated that the comment you reference happened in the context of a televised debate, not a comedy sketch. If the individual who made the statement that someone should not be considered human until they could “walk, talk, and breathe” intended it as a joke, they certainly picked the wrong forum (if a right forum conceivably existed for such a statement). 

      I think the main thing standing in the way of most pro-choicers’ conversions is an unwillingness to admit a ponderous truth that would necessarily cause them to reevaluate their actions, their priorities, and even their own humanity. If an unborn human being is, in fact, a living person, then many of them have been accomplices, if not perpetrators, of murder. Even if they have not participated in the act, they have defended it and most likely entertained it as a solution to a problem they might actually be faced with at some point. To acknowledge it for what it is would be a huge moral crisis in many cases. Still, as several of the contributors to this very site can attest, education and experience lead many to eventually see the truth about abortion.

      when you know someone who can’t walk, it’s not funny at all

  • Fishybubblz

    Oh really?? Whats the thing growing in your stomach, if not human?? A raccoon?  A monkey? Please, these pro-abortionists have no LOGIC.

      It’s not growing in the stomach. If it were, it would die. It grows in the U-T-E-R-U-S

        He meant belly, where both organs are located.  It’s a thing people say.

    I could ramble on forever about everything that is wrong with what this “expert” stated but instead I will ask this: If unborn babies are not human then what species are they and when exactly do they transform into a human…..

    [They can’t even walk.]
    Got a problem with people who can not walk? Eugenics once again… so typical. This guy may be able to walk, but he clearly is not able to rationally think in the least of ways.

    [one should not be considered a person unless they could walk, talk, and breathe]
    Great. Now they have a problem also with patients under a coma or under general anesthesia too.

    [But let’s wait on that caring until we’re humans.]
    Did I happen to miss something, or had he not stated previously that “They can’t even walk, they just sit there and gurgle”, clearly talking about already-born babies? Poorly played, sir: that was quite predictable a contradiction.

    Asuming that this sad little person knows at least how to read anything different than his own silly – and contradictory – jokes, I feel compelled to recommend that he reads Langman’s Medical Embryology and shakes off that apalling ignorance of his. Urgently.

    Schulman is obviously rationally challenged. Pitiful! You should love others as yourself-as God loves them. But that’s just Christianity in a nutshell. Too difficult for a simpleton like Schulie.

    Just another example of the cold, mean ugliness of the pro-“choice” mindset.

    Off-topic, thank you for spelling it “voila” instead of “waa-laa” or one of the other silly variants created by people who don’t realize it’s an actual word… lol… Sorry for the vocab snobbery :-D

    Mr. Schulman’s article reveals much more about himself and the deep depravity of the pro-abort worldview than it reveals about us.  Fight the urge to hate him and instead pray for him.

  • Dana Edgar

    A man in Washington State hacked up his two young sons before blowing them up in their home. Ask anyone in Washington State if they wished they could have protected those babies from their father and you would have a resounding, yes. It has been in the news constantly. Everyone feels remorse, what a tragedy! I feel the same way about mothers who do the same in the womb. This is not creepy, we care. Who will protect them?

  • FacelessGrace

    Being that the purpose of an article is to be read, it
    would seem that we’ve given him what he wants. Attention seems to be what he
    wants. Writing a response, let alone a whole article, is only putting his word
    out there more. If he lacks scientific knowledge so much, and no one should
    believe him, what good does it do to rant about how awful he is? Maybe put our
    time to better use and pray for the fellow instead of hating him.

  • Wilmoth7

    Huffington Post writer is pro-life?   Had no idea.   Yeah I don’t understand the pro-abortion mantra that it’s just tissue and not a human life.   What is it then? 

  • Cmoore

    Kristi, thank you for standing up for the unborn! Even if someone doesn’t believe that it is a baby or human (which is, of course, ridiculous) that fetus should be protected by virtue of what it is going to become! 

  • Human

    There are a lot of vets that can’t walk, some can’t talk either. I suppose they are not human, or useful either? 

  • Meghan Burnett

    who cares, who cares, who cares what he thinks? Unborn babies are human and it’s wrong to kill them. I have one thing to say about abortion: Abortion Is A Hoax.

    They transform into human beings the moment you are willing to prosecute a woman for murder for having an abortion

  • Musiciangirl591

    i know a pair of twins (from stories one has told me), they didn’t talk to their parents or anyone else other than themselves until they were 4, i guess they weren’t human the first 4 years of their lives…

  • Guest

    I agree with the original writer of the article. If a total stranger who doesn’t even live in the same state as you started fawning over your baby and butting their noise into your reproductive matters, wouldn’t you feel the least bit creeped out?
