Devil’s Advocate

Friday, September 11th, 2015

So it went down like this, he said, “Let me just play devil’s advocate here for a minute.  Let’s say that a 10 week fetus were just a blob of cells, would you still be against abortion at 10 weeks?”

I said, “How about we don’t just say that, because it’s not even remotely true and we don’t need more people in the world thinking that way. “

Turns out that sometimes when people play devil’s advocate, they really are advocating for the Devil.
