Liberal Washington Post columnist Kate Cohen sought to refute faith-based arguments against abortion Wednesday as she bemoaned the “fantastical” and “scary” idea that people have souls, and that those belonging to aborted babies never got the chance to live their lives on Earth.

Fox News reports:

In a piece headlined, “‘How would you feel if your mother had aborted you?’ Easy. I’d feel nothing,” Cohen argued that aborted babies “feel nothing” because they wouldn’t have ever existed following the abortion, and that if it came down to a choice between her “potential existence” and her mother’s “freedom,” she would choose the latter every time.

“When Elizabeth Spiers, an adoptee, wrote a thoughtful essay about the limits of adoption as a simple replacement for abortion (as suggested by Justice Amy Coney Barrett), she received a cascade of responses along the lines of: ‘If your mother felt she had a choice and chose differently you’d be fine with it?'” Cohen wrote while also referencing Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, an ongoing Supreme Court case challenging Mississippi’s recently enacted law restricting abortions.

“I’ve got the answer! She wouldn’t beanything — fine or not fine — because she wouldn’t be,” Cohen added. “To those of us who don’t believe in God, this sounds fantastical. And a little scary coming from the House floor,” Cohen wrote.

“Human lives, when seen this way, inhabit a strange kind of solidity even in the abstract: Before they live — even if they never live — these people were meant to be. And, ifthey do become (actual) people, their existence is retroactively deemed inevitable and necessary, ‘God’s will’ and not just one of a zillion possible combinations of sperm and egg and time and chance,” she added.

I think her mother should abort her now, just to see if she feels anything.

It is never to late. She is still eligible to be a Late term abortion.

yeah, but then they want to call it murder. What’s the difference. Actually, none. It’s just when the actual murder happens, before or after birth. Same results.

Too bad her mother didn’t abort her.

No brain, no pain. That fact might escape her today as it would have in the womb.

Your mother loved you enough to endure child birth. You must have LEARNED to be an idiot.

Anyone who looks around this earth, sees all the wonders and complexities, and is an atheist is correctly called “a fool.”

Cohens own words actually gave credence to the right to life. She is saying that if her mother had killed her before she was born she would not know anything. She is right, she would have been murdered before she was born and before she had the ability to learn about death. She would have been murdered simply knowing only about life.

That little child in the womb would be with the Lord. If these people think that child has no soul, it is the other way around. That person wanting to kill that baby is the one without a soul. That child will go immediately to be with my Lord. It is only those who are born that have a choice to accept or reject Christ. How can she say she is a Christian, and she should be very fortunate that her mother decided not to kill her.

This woman needs to return to her Hebraic roots as a daughter of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Her name means ‘priest’ in Hebrew. I pray that she will return and experience a reawakening, lest more lives be lost.
