A Terrible, Horrible Anti-Choice Abortion Law

Read it and weep, liberals:

Conditions: Between 12 and 18 weeks of gestation, the women must discuss the procedure with a social worker. After 18 weeks, permission must be obtained from the Board of Health and Welfare.

Abortions must be performed by a licensed medical practitioner and, except in cases of emergency, in a general hospital or other approved healthcare establishment…

Can you believe those knuckle-dragging, bitter-clingers of Texas trying to impose that kind of burden on a woman’s choice?  The nerve of those Christo-fascists!  Leave a woman’s vagina alone!  Keep your Rosaries off their ovaries!

Oh, wait…that is Sweden’s abortion law….

When our liberals claim that we’re engaging in a “war on women” because we want reasonable restrictions and regulations on abortion, all we’re doing is bringing American law in line with the rest of the civilized world.  Only a few Western nations ban abortion outright – Chile and Ireland being notable exceptions to the general run which allows abortion…but in almost all Western nations, only unrestricted in the first trimester.   In a very real sense, only in America can a child a day or two away from birth be murdered at the sole discretion of the mother – and that is the situation our liberals wish not only keep, but to make government-subsidized and available to minors without parental knowledge or consent.

As you all know, I’m pro-life – I’d like us to mirror Chile and just ban abortions outright.  We’re not, however, likely to get that any time soon – but we should at least be as cautious about abortion as the ultra-liberals of Europe, shouldn’t we?  Isn’t human life worth at least something?

Bottom line, anyone who does not get on board with laws like that proposed in Texas – which really does no more than put a few restrictions on late-term abortions and require abortuaries to maintain minimum health standards – is essentially coming down on the side of infanticide.

Gosnell Guilty: Justice Remains in America

Just has to note this because it is a good thing – Gosnell, of course, is just typical of what happened to the ‘back alley abortionist’ after Roe – he hung out a shingle, listed his number and took out an ad in the Yellow Pages.  But he was still the same back alley abortionist..and those who continue to do abortions are of the same species of person.  Not doctors (I don’t care what their degree says), but people who are paid to kill.  Small wonder that the Gosnell horrors came about – and I don’t doubt for a minute that similar stories can be told of most abortion mills, especially those who do late-term abortions.  Decent medical people don’t do that – decent people who go in to medicine do it to help people, not kill babies…not to provide a Final Solution to a temporary problem.

Since we cannot ban the savage practice of elective abortion at the moment, the lesson here is to start strictly regulating the abortion industry.  Time to start applying a little bit of liberalism’s onerous regulations to this one area of the economy liberals have demanded a free market in (except for they also demand that the taxpayer’s subsidize it).  Independent inspections must be part of this – at least quarterly all records of an abortuary must be examined by competent, outside medical, legal and accounting experts who are not in any way connected to the abortion industry.  This will at least reduce the number of Gosnell-like horrors…and it will be firmly pro-life in effect because I’ll bet money that strict supervision will drive a significant number of abortionists out of business.

Aside from that, we have to make sure that “pro-choice” owns this.  This is what pro-choice, in practice, leads to.  You want to say that no one can in any way, shape or form interfere with the ability of a woman to kill her unborn child?  Then this is what you get – because under the cover of “pro-choice” the abortion industry has ensured that Gosnell can happen.  Pro-choice now equals Kermit Gosnell.

Memo to Pro-Life Republicans

If you believe there should not be a  rape exception for abortion and you get asked the question, “do you believe there should be a rape exception for abortion?” then your answer is as follows:

I believe all of us desire that we should be just and merciful in our actions and I just can’t see how justice or mercy are served by executing a child because her father is a rapist.

Thank you for your time and attention to this message.

Obama: The American Dream is Unattainable without Abortion

Believe it or not, that is essentially what he said.

Barack Obama says the 39th anniversary of Roe v. Wade is the chance to recognize the “fundamental constitutional right” to abortion and to “continue our efforts to ensure that our daughters have the same rights, freedoms, and opportunities as our sons to fulfill their dreams.”

Really? Apparent children are not the future, they are obstacles.

Because Legal Abortions Are So “Safe”

Yup.

Two employees of a Philadelphia abortion clinic where live, viable babies were allegedly killed and a patient died after being given on overdose of painkillers pleaded guilty on Thursday to murder.Guilty pleas to third-degree murder were entered by Adrienne Moton, 34, and Sherry West, 52, who both worked for Dr. Kermit Gosnell at what prosecutors have described as a decrepit and unsanitary clinic known as Women’s Medical Society in West Philadelphia.

Due to a court-issued gag order, attorneys declined to comment on reports that no plea agreement was reached in the case.

Sentencing was set for December 2 by Common Pleas Judge Benjamin Lerner. The maximum penalty for third-degree murder is 40 years in prison.

Seven more defendants face charges in the case, including Gosnell, who a grand jury in January said, “killed babies and endangered women. What we mean is that he regularly and illegally delivered live, viable babies in the third trimester of pregnancy — and then murdered these newborns by severing their spinal cords with scissors.”

 

Susan B Anthony List Plans Pro-Life 2012 Ads

From Hot Air:

Susan B. Anthony list, a pro-life advocacy group that last week released an ad dramatizing the obscene partnership between President Barack Obama and Planned Parenthood, aims to raise enough money to run the ad in key battleground states. To that end, they’re in the midst of a 72-hour campaign to come up with just $21,000 — so small a sum in comparison to the price of an Obama fundraiser.

As the ad depicts, the president’s support for Planned Parenthood runs deep. Even when states have legitimately — and through the proper legislative avenues — sought to defund the abortion provider, the administration has stepped in to override states’ decisions. Earlier this month, for example, after the Executive Council of New Jersey decided not to renew a $1.8 million contract with PP, the administration stepped in and awarded Planned Parenthood of New England more than $1 million in federal funding. Just days ago, the First Lady hosted a fundraiser with Planned Parenthood Federation of America president Cecile Richards and EMILY’s List President Stephanie Schriock…

Click on the link if you can donate – one thing we do know for certain is that the Obama Administration has been lock-step in favor of the Culture of Death.  If there has been a way to advance abortion, Obama has been right there.  And Obama is counting on a lot of pro-abortion money to help fund his 2012 campaign.  This is the best way to fight that – especially in pro-life States like Pennsylvania which Obama must win to be re-elected.

The Anguish of Abortion

In spite of pro-abortion attempts to paint abortion as painless, the agony is very real – from Life News:

A new study published in the British Journal of Psychiatry by leading American researcher Dr. Priscilla Coleman of Bowling Green State University finds women who have an abortion face almost double the risk of mental health problems as women who have their baby.

Coleman’s study is based on an analysis of 22 separate studies which, in total, examine the pregnancy experiences of 877,000 women, with 163,831 women having an abortion. The study also indicated abortion accounts for one in ten of every adverse mental health issue women face as a whole.

“Results indicate quite consistently that abortion is associated with moderate to highly increased risks of psychological problems subsequent to the procedure,” the study says. “Overall, the results revealed that women who had undergone an abortion experienced an 81 percent increased risk of mental health problems, and nearly 10 percent of the incidence of mental health problems were shown to be directly attributable to abortion.”…

It is quite simply unnatural for a woman to abort her child – it is, indeed, a negation of all that “woman” means.  Call it biology or the will of God, the plain fact of the matter is that women are to create and nurture life…a woman can choose not to do this, but to take “choice” to mean the deliberate killing of a life already started is a horrific violation of the feminine spirit.  Given this, it is a certainty that there will be mental and spiritual pain associated with abortion.

My final awakening to the full effect of abortion was when, a few years back, I was privileged to meet some women from Silent No More – a campaign by women who have had abortions and now wish to warn other women of the terrible consequences.  While I have been, for most of my adult life, pro-life,  I still felt that as a man I was some how out of place in being a forthright and public opponent of abortion.  The ladies of Silent No More set me straight…bringing me to understand that my duty, as a man, is to defend women…including defending them against abortion, to the fullest extent of my ability.  The pain these women shared with me made it impossible for me do to other than continually speak out against this anti-woman, anti-human, barbaric practice…and to seek its abolition.

Let know one try to convince you otherwise – an abortion is the worst thing a woman can do to herself short of suicide.  However bad the circumstances of the pregnancy, to kill the unborn child will just make it worse, not better.  Life is always the proper choice.

Democrats Play for the Political Middle

By playing up to those moderate, middle-of-the-road, “mom and apple pie” folks at….Planned Parenthood – From Life News:

The chair of the national Democratic party headlined a small rally in Florida yesterday for Planned Parenthood, in what is the latest event having Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz working with the abortion business.

Wasserman Schultz was named by pro-abortion President Barack Obama recently to take over as the head of the Democratic Party nationally and prepare for his re-election campaign next year. At the time of her appointment to the position, Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards praised Wasserman Schultz as a “heroine” for her extensive abortion advocacy. The appointment made it clear Obama would not run from his lengthy pro-abortion record…

Yeah, that is what the people of America want –  abortion on demand.  And, hey, if you can get it funded via ObamaCare in the by and by, so much the better.   When Americans get up in the morning, they aren’t worried about their jobs or the future for their children…the only concern they have is whether or not Planned Parenthood stays on the public teat, sucking up money for butchering children.  That is the way in to America’s heartland…be closely identified with Planned Parenthood.

These people are starting to make this too easy…

Why Liberals Hate the “Conscience Exemption”

From Life News:

A new study provides more good news for pro-life advocates, as it shows fewer doctors are willing to perform abortions than before — creating a situation where the lower availability of abortion may be helping to reduce abortions.

The new report, published today in the journal Obstetrics and Gynecology, finds 97 percent of physicians surveyed say they have encountered patients wanting an abortion while only 14 percent of doctors are willing to do an abortion. That’s lower than the 22 percent of doctors who said they would do an abortion in the last poll, from 2008…

In the main, no doctor who is worthy of the name would perform an elective abortion.  Doctors know better than most that the unborn child is a unique, human life…and anyone committed to healing and saving will have a very hard time getting around this concrete fact.

There has been, over the years, a continual drop in the number of doctors who are willing to perform an elective abortion, greatly cutting in to the availability of the inhuman procedure, even without legislative restrictions.  Because of this, the pro-abortion fanatics are determined to force doctors and other medical professionals to provide abortion and other anti-life medical procedures – these people fought hard to ensure that ObamaCare had no meaningful “conscience” clause for medical providers who feel that things like birth control and abortion are immoral…and the pro-aborts will keep at it.  And here’s the bad news – as long as Roe is recognized as the law of the land, they are in a strong position.

If abortion is a right – and if health care is a right – then no doctor can refuse to perform whatever medical procedure a patient orders.  That, right there, shows that asserting a right to an abortion is absurd – no human right can ever denigrate another human right…you do have a right to choose, but this includes the right to choose “no” when asked to participate in an abortion.  But this bit of common-sense doesn’t matter to the pro-aborts…they just want their anti-life agenda to become absolutely the law of the land, and they’ll use every tool they’ve got…including asinine judicial rulings such as Roe.  And if they have to forcibly conscript our doctors and nurses in to the abortion industry, they’ll do it in the name of a “right” to an abortion.

I’ve said it before and I’ll keep saying it – the issue of life is the most important issue facing us today.  Next to it, issues such as the debt, the economy, war and all the rest fade to insignificance.  Whether or not we survive as a people depends on what we do about life.  Look around the world today and what do you see?  A dying world.  All of the nations of the Earth are locked in a dance with death.  Only a few nations retain a robust birth rate…while some nations have already entered terminal population decline (meaning that unless there is a massive turn-around in the birth rate, they will die out, as nations, within a bit more than a century).

We here in the United States are barely increasing – and a lot of that increase is due to recent immigrants, who haven’t quite been as poisoned by the Culture of Death as native people.  But even the nations the immigrants come from are now rapidly falling in to death…our illegal immigrant problem from Mexico will shortly solve itself…believe it or not, the Culture of Death has so corrupted Mexico that Mexican women (once know for their fertility) are not having children.  Our source of cheap, imported labor is drying up at the source.

I can’t really explain the motivation of those on the side of death – certainly there is an element of despair in them (likely stemming from some species of non serviam coming from the Enemy), but I’m at a loss to fully explain why they want us to die.  The only thing I know for certain is we must fight and destroy the Culture of Death.  We must not say that Life and anti-life are equal and worthy of respect…the pro-abort position is an illegitimate abomination, which can only be adhered to out of rank ignorance, or simple wickedness.  All our policies must be geared towards encouraging men and women to marry and have children, and providing them with the economic and legal basis to sustain a decent household for the raising of children.  Anything which detracts from this must be hindered, all that advances it must be fostered.

Remember, then, why you are fighting for small government, low taxes, sensible regulations, strong morals, decent education and religious liberty…not for your own self, but for all of those here today, and for those who come after.  All our efforts are not for political victory or so we can make money, or bomb our enemies to smithereens…but just so Joe and Jane Average can get married, have kids and raise them in a decent society.  If you’re not fighting for that, then you’re not fighting for anything worthwhile.

The Warm, Fuzzy Culture of Death

Looks like the pro-abortion fanatics are worried that the truth is destroying them…so, rather than just admit to truth and stop being so bloodthirsty in pursuit of abortion, they are hoping to put a smiley face on mass murder – from Life News:

I read recently that a team of researchers was beginning a study that seeks to reduce the stigmatization of abortion in society. Not surprisingly, the research team is being represented by the Guttmacher Institute, the former research arm of Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider (over 332,000 annually).

This upcoming study follows on the heels of a journal article published by a group of six academics which included an employee of the Guttmacher Institute. The article was titled “Abortion Stigma: A Reconceptualization of Constituents, Causes, and Consequences.”  The entire article is available on the Guttmacher Institute website.

The researchers noted five reasons abortion is stigmatized including the fact that scientific advances have “challenged previous constructions of boundaries between fetus and infant.” What most disturbs me about this “research” is that its aim is specifically to counter growing scientific evidence of the humanity of the unborn child…

There is just too much  money and power wrapped up in abortion advocacy and in abortions, themselves.  Some people have reaped vast fortunes and gained a great deal of power riding the “choice” label.  Now that label is being downgraded…the humanity of the unborn child is becoming ever more undeniable.  A desperate measure is to be made to counter this growing, common-sense view…a campaign of lies to convince people that, once again, it is just a “blob of tissue” which can be killed on a whim.

It is very sad to hear of this – that some people will so greedily cling to the passing, trivial rewards of this world.  Just to keep a bit of power and just to keep a bit of money, the Culture of Death will lie in defense of murder.  Imagine what this does to their souls, day by day.  It is bad enough for us just with the normal run of sin…I some times look in horror upon myself for my behavior.  Imagine what it would be like to be a normal, sinning human being and then tacking on advocacy of murder…and murder of the most innocent and helpless among us!  The darkness and pain these poor people feel in the dead of night, when the still, small voice of God tries to speak to them, must be terrible.

Keep up the fight – never forget the innocent lives which have been lost, and those which will be saved by the Pro-Life fight.  Work for that day when abortion is ended, and even its advocates recoil in shame over what they have done.
