Atheist WaPo columnist bemoans idea babies have souls, says she'd 'feel nothing' if mother aborted her

In a piece headlined, “‘How would you feel if your mother had aborted you?’ Easy. I’d feel nothing,” Cohen argued that aborted babiesfeel nothingbecause they wouldn’t have ever existed following the abortion, and that if it came down to a choice between herpotential existenceand her mother’s “自由,” 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 多布斯诉. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, an ongoing 最高法院 case challenging Mississippi’s recently enacted law restricting abortions.

I’ve got the answer! She wouldn’t be anything — fine or not fine — because she wouldn’t be,” Cohen added.

Cohen claimed thatnot beingwas a difficult concept for people to grasp or accept, 然后 “despite evidence to the contrary,” people in ancient times came up withstoriesexplaining we existed before we were alive on Earth and that we’ll still exist once we pass away.

She cited a number of Bible verses that mentioned how God forms and creates people, as well as Rep. Madison Cawthorn’s, R-N.C。, recent comments while speaking out against abortion, in which he described souls as beingeternal” 和 “sanctified by God.

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. 和, if they do become (实际的) 人, their existence is retroactively deemed inevitable and necessary, ‘God’s willand not just one of a zillion possible combinations of sperm and egg and time and chance,” 她补充说.
