Shall We Play A Game?

I never thought I’d see the day that something this serious would be the seed for a video game.
Choice: Texas' Abortion Video Game Encourages Players to Overcome Obstacles to Have an Abortion
Emily Horne, a Texas Right to Life lobbyist, says the game ‘reduces abortion to a dry, simplistic view and it completely ignores the voice of the unborn baby, who obviously has no voice or perspective in this at all.’  It does all that, and more: it turns what is unarguably one of the most savage acts of humanity – the willful butchering of an unborn baby – into a game, where ‘players’ run an obstacle course, the obstacles being Texas’ new and stricter abortion laws.

And what sickens me further?  Ms Horne says she ‘wouldn't be surprised to see a video game promoting the pro-life perspective sometime in the future’.  No, no, a thousand times no!  I can understand using your enemy’s tactics against them, but creating their own pro-life video game isn’t the way to do it.  No, in this case I would highly suggest letting the enemy’s actions work against them – show this video game for what it really is: the revealing that the abortion industry considers abortions nothing more than a game.
