Therefore, I hereby intend to show you some of these obnoxious pins and critique them. I can't promise that I will remain calm. I will probably end up screaming a few times. But that's okay, because all like-minded readers can come and scream with me in the comments afterward, right? :)

Which are all very good reasons for justifying murder, right?
Seriously, though. This is just so twisted. It implies that the only reason killing someone is wrong is because it causes people emotional or physical pain, completely ignoring the sacredness of human life. In my limited experience with pro-abortion people, I've found that they often don't argue that a preborn baby isn't a person as much as they argue that killing an innocent human being is sometimes justifiable.
And while we're on the topic of "scientific facts": a preborn baby has its very own unique DNA from the moment of conception. So there.

The logic here is fatally flawed. It makes the case that war, hunger, poverty, etc., etc., are just as heinously wrong as abortion is. It completely ignores the fact that abortion is THE DIRECT TAKING OF AN INNOCENT HUMAN LIFE.
War is not murder - it's a horrible thing that pretty everyone wants to avoid, but which is sometimes necessary. Hunger and poverty and homelessness are not murder - they're unfortunate facts which, again, everyone is trying to fix. Our planet's degradation is not murder - quite often it's a lot of hype about nothing. Capital punishment is not murder - it should be avoided and used only as a very last resort, but it's not the taking of an innocent human life. As for human rights - fighting for the unborn IS fighting for the most basic of human rights - life! And what good are education and employment to a dead person?
Abortion IS murder. It's legal murder. That's why it's so horrible. That's why it's more urgent than all the other horrible things which everyone knows is wrong and everyone is fighting against.

THIS is something to worry about. Tell me this cause isn't worth fighting with all my might and main.

This one makes me so mad I might just have to go punch a pillow.
It's a just anger, though.
Just look at their reasoning. Just look at it. "Because this doesn't look like a human, it isn't a human." I thought judging people by their appearances was seen as a horrible atrocious thing in America! But here they are, not only pointing fingers and making fun of the way someone looks, but using the way a person looks as justification to kill them. This is OUTRAGEOUS, people. This is beyond bigoted. Not even racists use outward appearances as justification to kill someone.
Plus, look at how they contradicted themselves there. First they say, "This is not a person." Then they turn around and say, "This is a developing human organism," as though "a developing human organism" is a totally different thing from a "person." They just CHANGED TERMS on us and hoped the way "developing human organism" sounds will hide the reality of what a "developing human organism" is. Let's break this down:
"Developing" means "growing." The plants in my sister's upstairs nursery are developing. My cats kittens are devloping. My baby sister is developing. I'm developing. You're developing. The fact that we're developing doesn't make us less human than we are, and the fact that my baby sister is less developed than I am doesn't make her less human than I am.
"Human organism" means "person." I think that's pretty obvious. I'm a human organism. You're a human organism. My baby sister is a human organism. It sorta sounds like the term an alien from Lost in Space would use, but it doesn't change the fact that WE ARE PEOPLE.
And it doesn't change the fact that this little baby is a person, either.
So to translate what they just said to ordinary terms, "This is not a person. This is a growing human creature." Uh.....where's the difference?
