Dog in the Abortion Fight

Tyrus on the Clay and Buck show

Abortion is one of the headline topics of the current news cycle and Tyrus (on the Clay and Buck show) voiced his opinion. I heard the segment during my lunch break last week. Tyrus was candid about the fact that his mother chose not to abort him, a win for the pro-life side.

How Cute!

My two favorites on Gutfeld.

The conversation continued and Tyrus commented on the Supreme Court leak regarding the draft opinion reversing Roe vs. Wade.  He said, “I don’t have a dog in that fight”.

I took that to mean he doesn’t have standing when it comes to a woman’s decision to abort. The phrase stuck with me and I began to wonder, what if he did have a dog in the fight? Would he then have standing?

It took me a while to work through the conundrum but this is what I came up with. Despite the current liberal dribble to the contrary, it still takes a man and a woman to become pregnant the way nature intended. So, a woman discovers that she’s pregnant. She begins to consider her options and one of those options is whether or not to tell the father. If the mother elects to tell the father, does that mean he has a dog in the fight? Does he have standing? What if the mother is the father’s wife and she elects not to tell him. Does that mean he doesn’t have a dog in the fight? Does that mean he has no standing?

I’m just scratching the surface here. There are countless scenarios, but all have two things in common. A life is (naturally) created by a man and a woman. And, a woman has a choice: she chooses whether or not, to tell the truth. The question is; does the truth or a lie by omission, change a man’s standing?

Personally, I think men in general are lazy about this issue. If they get a woman pregnant, they’re more than just a little relieved when she handles it on her own. The less involved they are, the more relieved. I think women are lazy about the issue too. Pregnancy, as well as giving birth, are both hard work, and that’s just the beginning. None of this speaks to what’s right and just. It doesn’t speak to what’s moral and decent. It does speak to the poor values instilled by parents … and taking the easy way out on both sides of the equation.

P.S. – Tyrus. If somehow you get the opportunity to read this, I would greatly appreciate some clarification.
