I was doing a search for abortion videos on Youtube and I came across a clip from an episode of The View. It is one of the most interesting discussions I have heard recently on the topic of abortion. Joy makes the most compelling point when she argues that pro-life advocates and pro-choice advocates are fighting over two different issues. She argues that pro-lifers should change their title to anti-choice because that is a more accurate representation of what they are advocating. She goes on to say that it is offensive to her that people think she doesn't value life because she is pro-choice. I think this is an excellent argument. All the ladies on the show had intelligent, in-depth, extremely passionate views. Elizabeth was defending the pro-life movement, and even though the other women were giving her a hard time, she held her own and made some valid arguments as well. The discussion was completely candid and full of passion, and that is what made this clip hold my attention. I even watched it twice in a row because I found it so fascinating.
