TYT on The Turnaway Study

There are so many flaws with the Turnaway Study, it’s laughable.  First, one need only look at their website or their Facebook page, to see the obvious bias, and what they are trying to do, which is to validate abortion.

The video below is a report from The Young Turks (TYT), on the Turnaway Study.  Let’s watch and listen.

Take note of the screen shot below, specifically, the 1st bullet point. What does this tell you?  You have to reverse the psychology of what is obviously an attempt to justify abortion.  That 1st bullet point could just as well read:  “No mental health consequences of women denied abortions" Full. Stop. 

image

The 2nd bullet point “Later abortion is safer than childbirth”, may be true, if of course you don’t count the baby who is killed by it.  There was another article which quoted the following:

We find physical health complications are more common and severe following birth (38% experience limited activity, average 10 days) compared to abortion (24% limited activity, average 2.7 days). There were no severe complications after abortion; after birth complications included seizure, fractured pelvis, infection and hemorrhage. We find no differences in chronic health conditions at 1 week or one year after seeking abortion. [emphasis is mine]

Using the fact that women who have given birth, need time to recuperate?  Really? 

And lastly, the 3rd bullet point indicates that having children can put you in the poor house.  No one ever said raising kids was cheap, and no one I know killed their unborn children because they couldn’t afford them.

Now, go back to the video and listen at around the 1:20 mark.  Listen as the female co-host jumps in saying the overall feeling of the women who had abortions, was relief.  That’s cool, I can deal with that.  But she followed that by saying that the women who were denied abortions, had to deal with the stress of being stuck in a situation where either physically, emotionally, or financially, they knew they were not going to be able to handle.  EXCEPT THEY WERE!!!

image

The stats speak for themselves.  86% of the women who were denied an abortion, were still living with their babies a year later, while 11% put their babies up for adoption.  What pro-life has been saying all along, is that women will most likely keep their babies, if they’re not allowed to legally kill them in the womb.

What Question(s) Should The #Savita Inquiries Answer?

There has been so much emotion, understandably, regarding the death of Savita Halappanavar. Her husband Praveen, has every right to know if her death could have been prevented. Hopefully, the inquiries into her death will answer any questions he has.

Many, like me, have seen her death as being exploited into a demand for legalised abortion in Ireland. Having said that, what is the one question you want answered from these inquiries? I'll go first, with the obvious question.

Would terminating Savita's pregnancy have saved her life?

ProLife Ireland, You’re Being Set Up

JenI just read Dr. Jen Gunter’s latest post where she explains why (in her opinion) the panel set to investigate the death of Savita Halappavanar must be changed.

There is only one international expert and three of the doctors on the panel work at Galway, the hospital where she died.

She goes on to say that Dr Sabaratnam Arulkumaran (the one international expert) is a good choice to lead the panel.

The head of the panel is an expert from England and a good choice.

What she fails to inform her readers of, is that Dr Sabaratnam Arulkumaran is NOT unbiased when it comes to abortion.  In fact, he co-wrote a paper titled “Safer childbirth: A rights-based approach”, which having read the abstract only, says:

This paper highlights some of the current global efforts on safer pregnancy with a focus on reproductive rights. We encourage readers to do more in every corner of the world to advocate for women's reproductive rights and, in this way, we may achieve the MDGs by 2015.

Now we all know that “reproductive rights” means “abortion rights”, right? RIGHT?  So why would a team of experts set to investigate Savita’s death, be headed by a guy who believes women should have the right to kill their unborn baby? 

This reeks of a pro-abort set up to change Irish laws to allow abortion on demand.

#ProLife ALERT From Youth Defense

From Facebook:

BREAKING: British doctor who will lead Savita inquiry has previously written that countries who restrict abortion should be CHALLENGED.
He favours "liberal abortion laws" which make "choice of a termination of pregnancy a right for women".

Indeed he has.  Spread the word.

Are We Conservative Enough?

From Care 2 “Conservatives Say Next Election Needs More Abortion, Rape Talk”

Well, I wouldn’t have put it that way, but I’m not the one spinning abortion and rape into a faux “war on women” either.  Yes, faux.  There was never a war on women.

From the article:

According to groups like anti-abortion Susan B. Anthony List Mitt Romney should have spent more time debating President Obama on abortion. In a statement released Wednesday Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the Susan B. Anthony List, said Romney took a weak position on abortion that set the tone for Senate candidates and caused those losses as well. She said Romney was “wobbly” on social issues and called on conservatives to redouble their focus on abortion.

“Abortion meant rape in the minds of many voters because the debate was not fully engaged,” she said. Dannenfelser said Republicans seemed to have called “a de facto truce on social issues” while Democrats “launched a war.” Seriously.

Seriously.  Pro-aborts made up a phony war on women, striking fear in women who actually believed that Mitt Romney would take away their birth control, and overturn Roe v Wade.  How do you defend against a faux war?  You can’t.  When everything thing you say is twisted and exaggerated, it’s best to avoid that topic.

Mitt Romney has a history of flipping on issues, depending on where he’s running.  In Massachusetts, he was pro-choice, because he had to be to get elected. 

To this day, I don’t know what his personal position is on abortion, and neither do millions of other people, hence why they didn’t vote for him, or why they didn’t vote at all.  We put up the wrong candidate, not because I think Mitt Romney is a bad person, he’s not.  But because of his history of flipping, people couldn’t really trust him.

One last snippet from the Care 2 article:

Social conservatives claim the answer to their electoral woes is to become more conservative, and that the answer to their shedding of women voters to become more anti-woman.

I would  disagree that we need to become more conservative.  We’re conservative enough.  As for the shedding of women voters, as much as I hate to say it, the loss of women voters only shows how vulnerable gullible women can be.  And you wonder why they didn’t allow us to vote back in the olden days?  This is why ladies!

Women are smarter than this, but they need to be educated on conservatism.  They need to know that they need not fear conservatives.  Conservative women, are women too.  We fight the same battles they do, we just don’t use our unborn children as pawns in the battle to attain truly equal rights.

We’ve Come A Long Way Baby!


I saw the tweet above awhile ago.  From "The British Pregnancy Advisory Service”, also known as BPAS, also known as Britain's largest single abortion provider. 
I seriously doubt women in the US have late term abortions for reasons much different than women in the UK, so I think this audit is valid for women here as well.
“BPAS’ staff audited every request for abortion above 22 weeks’ gestation during a randomly-chosen consecutive 28 day period in 2008.”
Of the 32 women audited, only one was for fetal abnormality.
#19 Woman is 23 years old and is 22 weeks pregnant. Couple already has two young children. This was a planned pregnancy. Severe facial abnormalities were detected during a routine ultrasound scan. The request for abortion was made following discussions with the care team attached to the local maternity unit. The plastic surgeon had said that, if the baby were born, it would need to undergo repeated surgeries and face a poor quality of life. The NHS unit was prepared to end the pregnancy, but had been unable to give the woman a date for this. The couple felt they “needed closure” and could not cope with the uncertainty of waiting. They paid privately to attend a BPAS clinic.
Not all of the 32 women audited, had abortions. Some were too close to the legal gestational limit, while others couldn’t get an appointment with NHS (for government paid abortion) within the legal time-frame.
For their reasons for abortion, I found “unable to cope”, the main reason women abort.  To me this is sad.  Other reasons include:
  • Girl feels too young to have a baby. (Not too young to have sex though)
  • Woman and partner were served with eviction notice
  • Mother with two children who feels she just can’t cope with a third.
In the United States, about 1.5% of abortions are performed at or beyond 21 weeks LMP. 
image
So when you hear a pro-abort defend later term abortions, remind them that approximately 10,000 babies aborted annually in the US, were a few short weeks from viability.  And remind them that feminism’s way of helping women cope, is for them to kill their unborn children.

Economics Is No Excuse To Kill, Except When A Pro-Abort Says It Is

There are too many orphans in the world. No one can argue that. What we disagree on, is that killing them before they're born helps them. Tempibones apparently thinks it does.

The Right to Know Abortion Facts | New Feminism

It seems the answer to the debate regarding induced abortion increasing a womans risk of getting breast cancer, could be answered with ONE question asked of women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer. One question! Have you had an induced abortion in the past?

To Pro-Choice, Abortion = Never Existing

Except that the human embryo DOES exist before it's killed by abortion. Why don't they get that?

The Alternative To "Choose Life" Is...

What is the alternative of "choose life" if not "choose death"? Seriously? This is the problem pro-aborts face when trying to deny abortion causes death.

Abortion Proponents Use Dead Teenager To Further Abortion Agenda

By now, you’ve all heard about the 16 year old in the Dominican Republic, who died from complications of leukemia.  As the doctor stated in the video below, she had a very poor prognosis when she was admitted to the hospital, not so much because she was pregnant, but because of the characteristics of her kind of leukemia.  

But would the pro-aborts pass up a chance to scream that a pro-life law, such as they have in the Dominican Republic, kills women?  No, of course they wouldn’t!  Here are a few of the tweets I’m referring to.

image

image

image

You get the idea.  All the tweets carry the same message, that the girl died because she couldn’t have an abortion.  This is nonsense.  Would an abortion followed by chemo have saved her? It's unlikely, due to the severity of the leukemia. Unfortunately, we will never know.

For the record, it would have been acceptable, even preferable, for her to have received chemo when she was initially diagnosed with leukemia, whether or not she was pregnant.  The chemo may have caused her to miscarry, but the chance of saving the girls life would have been greater.  Or, she and the baby may have died anyway, but they also may have both lived.

Amanda Marcotte Equates Being Pro-Choice With Being A Slut

I wonder how many Pro-Choice women (and men) cringed when they saw this tweet by pro-abortion Amanda Marcotte.

image

Disclaimer: What is written below is to no way indicate I support the “choice” of abortion, because I don’t.

I for one, know that the “pro-choice” movement, supports all choices, including birth and abortion.  There are clearly many, many pro-choice people who support the movement, not for them-selves, but for other women. 

According to Amanda, if you would never consider having an abortion for yourself, then you are placing yourself above those who would.  You are ‘better’ than they are.  You look at women who abort as sluts.

It will be interesting to watch the backlash from her statement.  Here’s an example, albeit a mild one.  Her response did more damage, in my opinion, than helped the situation.

image

I cringe at the thought of pro-choice women and men defending her statement.  Hopefully, they won’t.  I also hope this brings to light the thinking of those ‘at the top’ of the pro-choice movement, women like Amanda Marcotte.

Roe Is Not About Rape

Because this is an opinion letter, and will probably be deleted soon, I am posting it in it’s entirety.

From the Pueblo Chieftain

Letters: Roe v. Wade

Since so many in Washington would like to cancel Roe v. Wade, I would like to know what their logic is. Any girl or woman should be allowed the morning-after pill as soon as possible if they have been raped or coerced into having sex.

I have wondered for many years how men would feel if they were rape victims and they could get pregnant. Could they handle carrying a child for nine months?

If they did, how would they treat a child forced on them by rape?

Could they give it up for adoption?

In the 1930s, ’40s, ’50s and ’60s, if a woman was raped, it was considered to be her own fault. If she had an abortion, many times she was unable to have another child if she lived through the surgery.

Many of those girls were in their teens and had never been told about sex, and had not been given the chance to decide if they wanted a child at such a young age.

I was glad to see Roe v. Wade become law. It prevented a lot of women from having to go through carrying a child to term and having to give it away, or have a back-street abortion, from which many died.

I cannot remember any man going to jail for rape in those days. If men had to go through what women who have been raped go through, they might think differently. In the old days, as well as today, when a young man asks a girl out on a date they usually expect to be repaid, and if the girl gets pregnant, it will always be her fault.

Roe v. Wade should never be canceled. It is critical to the health and well being of all women.

Clayetta H. Speltz

Pueblo

Ms. Speltz has clearly bought into the lie that Roe v Wade is about protecting rape victims.

The logic behind the reversal of Roe v Wade?  Simply, 1.3 million unborn children are killed by abortion every year in the US alone.  Around 3% of those abortions are reported as following rape.  While most rapes go unreported, most rapes don’t result in pregnancy either, so the percentage would not be much higher than 3%. I’m sick of women and men using rape victims as an excuse to keep abortion on demand as law.  Roe v Wade is a product of the sexual revolution.  It’s not about protecting women, it’s about women being free to have sex without the consequence or responsibility of the baby who results from that sex.

So what happens when Roe is reversed?  Women and men will be forced into responsibility when they make the choice to have sex.  There will be no more Saturday trips to the abortion clinic, because you forgot to use a rubber, or because you neglected to take your birth control pill for 3 days.  You will be forced to think (with your brain) before you act on your urge to copulate.

Don’t think you can control that urge?  Then consider yourself as having the same mindset as a rapist, and consider the child you create and kill by abortion, as the victim.

Hey Maddow, You Neglected A Few Truths

Rachel Maddow spewed her venom at the Associated Press,  for what she referred to as a "shockingly bad article".  The article, which by the way was written by a woman,  was titled “Abortion Fight Defines Kansas Prosecutor Race”. See video below.

From HuffPoo:

Maddow seemed shocked by the Associated Press' description of the race in Kansas and inclusion of a quote from Operation Rescue. "What? This is just astonishing," Maddow said. "Yes, the blame for the doctor being shot to death by the anti-abortion activist...lies with the district attorney who didn't prosecute that doctor for something or other. He didn't get prosecuted so obviously, he had to be shot, so says Operation Rescue”

Rachel Maddow was taking issue with this statement from Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue.

"If Nola Foulston had done her job with George Tiller, he would still be alive today," said Troy Newman, president of Wichita-based Operation Rescue.

From the Fresno Bee :

The district attorney [Nola Foulston] had refused to allow then-Attorney General Phill Kline to prosecute Tiller in her jurisdiction, resulting in a judge dismissing charges that the doctor had performed illegal late-term abortions.

What Troy Newman said was the truth.  If George Tiller had been properly prosecuted, he would have been in jail, and therefore protected from people like Scott Roeder. 

Does this mean Nola Foulston was responsible for Tiller’s murder?  No, but then again, neither was Bill O’Reilly.

18,000 Sacrificial Lambs

An opinion piece written by Christie Zink, and published in The Washington Post, tells of
“a real live, breathing woman who terminated a much-wanted pregnancy at almost 22 weeks, when her baby was found to have severe fetal anomalies of the brain.”
Ms. Zink begins her article with this:
Introduce me to the woman who has an abortion after 20 weeks because she is cruel and heartless. Introduce me to the lazy gal who gets knocked up and ignores her condition until, more than halfway through her pregnancy, she ends it because it has become too darn inconvenient for her selfish lifestyle. If such a woman exists, I have never met her. Sadly, however, she appears to have influenced the thinking of even savvy, politically informed people in this country. Otherwise, how could they argue that carrying to term is always the right decision late in pregnancy? In fact, the myth of such callous women has been compelling enough to push along a bill that would ban abortion in the District after 20 weeks of pregnancy; the bill was approved this month by the House Judiciary Committee, moving it forward for consideration by the full House, perhaps as soon as Tuesday.
Perhaps Ms. Zink never heard of Kermit Gosnell, the notorious abortionist from Philadelphia. From Slate:
In 2004, a 27-year-old woman went to Gosnell, pregnant with her first child. She testified that she was surprised when Gosnell told her she was 21 weeks pregnant. On the first day of what was to be a two-day procedure, Gosnell inserted dilators in the woman's cervix. After Gosnell had finished inserting the laminaria, the woman asked him what happened to the babies after they were aborted. She testified that Gosnell told her they were burned.
At home, thinking over how Gosnell disposed of the fetuses, the woman had a change of heart. She called her cousin and the cousin called Gosnell to tell him that they wanted him to take the laminaria out. Gosnell said that he could not do that once the procedure was started. And he did not want to return the $1,300 that the patient had already paid. The pregnant woman ended up going to the Hospital at the University of Pennsylvania to have the laminaria removed. It was determined at the hospital that she was 29 weeks pregnant. A few days later, the 27-year-old delivered a premature baby girl. She was treated at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and is today a healthy kindergartener.
Clearly there are women who abort their babies after 20 weeks of pregnancy. Most, but not all, for fetal anomaly. From the website of abortionist Warren Hern MD:
Patients coming in for very late abortion - over 26 menstrual weeks' gestation - are almost always seeking services for termination of a desired pregnancy that has developed serious complications. This usually means the discovery of a catastrophic fetal anomaly or genetic disorder that guarantees death, suffering, or serious disability for the baby that would be delivered if the pregnancy were to continue to term. Occasionally a woman presents at this stage for pregnancy termination because of her own severe medical illness or a psychiatric indication. [emphasis is mine]
Almost, usually, occasionally.. means ‘not always’. The 'psychiatric indication’ could be as simple, and as temporary, as depression caused by the mother being dumped by her no good boyfriend. Clearly, there are many healthy babies who are viable at the time of the abortion.
Even one healthy baby killed for no reason other than the woman changed her mind, is one baby too many. Aborting healthy babies, later term or otherwise, doesn’t matter to pro-aborts. If they fought for the life of even one of these babies, they would have to fight for the rest of them as well. So they use them as sacrificial lambs instead, by saying things such as “only 1.5% of abortions are performed after 20 weeks”, not seeing 18,000 babies destroyed and often dismembered. These are the sacrificial lambs rarely mentioned by the proponents of choice.

Production Prevention

Tweets like the one below are so disheartening.  Pro-aborts just don’t get, or won’t admit, that children are created by the act of sex.  They aren’t created at birth; they are created at conception.imageSpeaking of ‘produce’, is a piece of fruit any less a piece of fruit, before it’s picked from the tree?  No, of course not.  An apple is still an apple, before it’s picked, and after it’s picked.

Birth doesn’t change who or what a baby is.  It’s always been the same developing human being, since the day of his/her conception.

ABC News Tweets Bias In Full Public View

This is just so wrong.  On Twitter, @ABC (ABC News) tweeted the following.  Click on the picture to go to the link, then read the title of the article when the new page opens up.

image

Now look below, at the link you just clicked on.

http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/power-players-abc-news/rick-santorum-says-nominating-pro-choice-vp-candidate-112520804.html

Whether or not this was an accident is not important. What IS important is that @ABC has not corrected the tweet, or the link to the article. They clearly showed what we’ve always known.  The mainstream media is clearly biased when it comes to the subject of abortion.  This is completely unacceptable.

Were Babies of Pro-Life Parents Wanted?

I need to dispel the myth in the tweet below. 

image

Pro-aborts seem to think pro-choice parents choosing which of their unborn babies will be allowed to take their first breath, while choosing death by abortion for others, is better than a pro-life parent choosing to love their babies whether they were planned (wanted) or not.

I think they’re misguided.  If my parents had been pro-choice, would I be better off knowing that I’m here because they didn’t make the choice to kill me in utero?  I think not.  I wouldn’t want to think of my parents as people who would choose death for any of their children.

My parents chose life for all the babies they had.  They chose to love all the babies they created.  That’s a choice I can live with.

Pro-Choice Supports Murder

So you think pro-choice doesn’t support women who commit murder?  They clearly do.  The tweet below, which I fully expect to go viral in the pro-choice community, tells it all. #freeBeiBeiimage

From the Washington Post (as linked in the tweet):

A Chinese immigrant who Indiana prosecutors say ate rat poison when she was eight months pregnant rejected a plea agreement Friday that would have negated a murder charge in her newborn baby’s death.

Background:

Shuai was eight months pregnant on Dec. 23, 2010, when she ate rat poison after her boyfriend broke up with her. Shuai was hospitalized and doctors detected little wrong with the unborn child’s health for the first few days. The premature girl, Angel Shuai, was delivered by cesarean section Dec. 31, but died from bleeding in the brain three days later after being removed from life support.

imageSo a clearly distraught woman, who was abandoned by her boyfriend, attempted suicide.  This doesn’t change the fact that in doing so, she caused the death of her baby.  Unnamed women’s rights groups have stood up to defend Bei Bei Shuai, saying:

a conviction in the case could set a precedent by which pregnant women could be prosecuted for smoking or other behavior that authorities deemed a danger to their unborn child.

And not getting a conviction could set a precedent by which pregnant women who use cocaine during pregnancy, are not held responsible for the life growing inside them, even when the unborn child dies.

How far gone are pro-choice feminists who support actual murder?  Well, if you’re guessing “going, going, gone!”.. you'd be close.

Pro-Choice Rhetoric Curving To Meet Technology?

Katie Roiphe wrote an article in Slate, “Preglimony and Pro-Choice Rhetoric”.  What is preglimony you ask?  Preglimony would be financial support from the father, for the mother’s care during her pregnancy.  There is new technology which can answer that question “Who’s the father?”, at only 8 wks or so in the pregnancy, with a simple blood test.  Don’t get too excited.  At a cost of up to $1750 dollars, to say it’s cost prohibitive for most of us, is putting it mildly.  But with all new technologies, the cost is sure to come down, and it will probably still be cost prohibitive for most of us.

As a single mother, I read with interest the law professor Shari Motro’s eminently sensible and humane op-ed in the New York Times arguing for what she somewhat clunkily calls “preglimony.” Her point was that given new technologies that allow very early, safe paternity tests, why shouldn’t the father of the baby-in-progress be responsible for medical and other costs during pregnancy?

As you may have noticed in the quote above, the rhetoric is changing already.  What was once a ‘clump of cells’, and more recently a ‘potential child’, is now becoming a ‘baby in progress’. 

The implications of Motro’s sensible stance to the pro-choice movement, though, are complex and thorny. The interests of protecting expectant mothers do not necessarily coincide with the interest of protecting abortion rights. Once you admit that the father is responsible to a woman carrying his fetus, you are halfway, at least in an imaginative sphere, to admitting that the fetus is a “life.” You are, in theory, extending the idea of “paternity” and implicitly the idea of the child, to pregnancy.

Sometimes even pro-aborts surprise me in the way they think. “You are, in theory, extending the idea of “paternity” and implicitly the idea of the child, to pregnancy.”  We can’t have that, can we?  Just imagine the father of the unborn child, being recognized as having responsibility (he should) to the woman he impregnated! 

I don’t actually think it is in the interests of feminism or the pro-choice movement to cling so rigidly to outdated notions of “life.” It no longer helps our cause to try to argue that the fetus is not “life.” The reason for this, as people have noted, is that technological advances, like sonograms, where you can see feet on a fetus in the first trimester, have made those claims clearly and patently hollow to even ardently pro-choice people who have seen the black and white staticky fuzziness take shape into human form. How can we possibly claim that the moving creature, with feet and toes that we can see, is not “life”?

Yes, technology has proven the humanity of the ‘baby-in-progress’.  No longer can pro-aborts claim it’s ‘just a clump of cells’.  No longer can they claim the human fetus is not a life, when it so clearly is.

The only question that remains is; How long will it be before the pro-choice movement is forced to admit abortion kills unborn babies?  My gut tells me, not much longer.

This Is Not A Difficult Concept

She Felt She Had No Choice

I found this post on 45 Million Voices.  Women go there to tell their story about their abortion.  We can learn a lot, if we just listen to them.  This is only one of many stories, of women who felt they had no choice. “Pro-choice” should do better, and actually offer young women a choice.

***I’ve posted this in it’s entirety because there is no individual link to each story on their website, and I don’t want to lose any part of this one due to new stories being added.  The author of the post was not identified.

Bruce and I weren't talking to each other anymore. He told me he never wanted to see me again and I was really hurt, because I still had feelings for him. One morning I decided to take a pregnancy test, I was feeling nauseous for the last couple mornings and couldn't remember when I got my last period. I just thought, "It's just being irregular, I'm gonna end up wasting this pregnancy test." I took the test and watched as a "+" formed. I thought, "That's weird. I never saw that before." Then I thought, wait, am I pregnant? I didn't want to believe it and thought the test was broken. I even went on the internet and searched what that particular pregnancy test brand looked like when it was positive. Yup, I was pregnant. I immediately sent Bruce a text telling him I had something important to tell him. He didn't answer. I decided not to get too worked up over it because I had to get ready for class.

Later that day I got to school and sent Bruce several text messages and called him countless times. He would not answer. I knew he never wanted to talk to me again. I was frustrated so during class I just sent him a text saying, "I'm pregnant. Thought you'd wanna know that now, not the day I give birth." He replied, "No you're not, and even if you were, you'll just get an abortion." I was pissed that he said that and replied to him that it was my body and I'll make whatever decision I want. We texted back and forth and his text messages were getting nastier. He said things like, "I already have a daughter. Nobody is going to replace her....Go ahead and keep that kid, he'll never have a father, I'll never be in his life....See you in 9 months...." I started crying right there in the middle of the class. How could someone I trusted and liked be so hurtful like that?

The next couple days were awful. I went to Planned Parenthood and the counselor said I should tell my parents. I told her that wasn't an option, not unless I was sure I would keep it. Can you imagine? I don't think my parents even knew I kissed a boy. Yeah I was 19 years old, but they didn't know I hung out with guys and was sexually active. My parents would flip out on me! We were a traditional Hispanic family. No sex until marriage!!! That would mean that I would have to get an abortion. I had no other choice. I wasn't thrilled with the idea, but it was the only way my parents would never find out. I told Bruce I thought I knew what to do. The abortion would cost $400 and we would each pay $200. Now he started being nice to me and started caring about my feelings. He agreed with the abortion, he said "You know what, this experience will bring us together. Our relationship will be stronger because we'll be going through it together, and I want you to know that I'm going to help you through this."

Of course, my nightmare came true. My dog had chewed up the garbage bag that I threw the pregnancy test in. I came home to an angry mom holding the test. I try not to remember the conversation. It was really painful. She was disgusted with me. My mom said nasty things to me, she called me a "whore", "slut", even a "pervert". She asked what I planned to do. I told her about how I was planning on getting an abortion. Her response? "Good, 'cause if you keep it it'll ruin your life." It wasn't a response I expected from a mother and it really upset me.

The next 2 weeks were awful. My mom would not talk to me, look at me, or even be in the same room as me. I felt as if I had some deadly contagious disease and she was trying to stay away from me. At this point, I hated her. I couldn't understand how a mother can be so cruel to her daughter who needed her help and support the most. My father was disappointed but he tried to act like nothing was wrong.

Then I thought, well my parents know, maybe I should keep the baby. The worst has already happened. I called Bruce and told him about how my parents found out and how I was thinking about keeping it. He panicked. "You can't keep it! I'm not gonna help ok? If you keep it, I will seriously hate you forever Monica. You don't have a good job, you're not gonna have money to raise this thing! I'm not gonna baby-sit, I have a daughter already. She's my only daughter and my world is around her ONLY." I heard a little boy's voice in the background say, "I think you should keep it!" "Who was that?" I asked. "My nephew, he thinks you should keep it." Bruce said. "I'm on speaker phone?!?!?!?!" I flipped for a good 5 minutes.

After lots of crying, I decided that maybe the abortion would be the best decision. I was so upset, I just imagined having a little baby boy bringing so much joy to my life. I wouldn't need to worry about getting a boyfriend or going out or any of that. I would have always have someone to love and they would love me. That's all I needed.

Finally, THE day came. My best friend picked me up from my house and we drove to Bruce's. I knew something was wrong when Bruce got in the car. He didn't say hi or anything. He was glued to his phone texting. I just shrugged it off, I figured he was probably upset about the abortion like I was. We got to the abortion clinic. My friend dropped us off and went to class to take a test, she would be back in about 2 hours. 10 minutes after she left Bruce looked at me and said, "I left my money at home." "Are you serious???" I was pissed. "Yeah, tell your friend to get over here and drive me back to my house." "That's gonna take forever!!! Whatever, when we drop you off, give me the money." I was so aggravated, I had bad morning sickness and was thirsty and starving. I looked at the protestors in front of the clinic. They were holding signs up saying "Abortion is murder!" I felt horrible. I then stared at the one old lady, I recognized her from the year before when I drove my friend to get her abortion. I never thought I would be back at this place.

I did the walk of shame and quickly went inside the clinic. I paid for the abortion myself. After the urine test and blood test, I soon had my ultrasound. I got upset, usually when women get ultrasounds they're excited. I leaned over and looked at the screen. There was a little blob. Soon after, I had my "consultation" with the counselor. It was really just signing a million forms. There was no question like "You sure you wanna do this?" Just, "Ok sign this paper, this paper, this one too and I need to sign here and here and here..." Then the woman said, "You're early."

Then it was time to get it. Since I was the first patient of the day, there was hardly any waiting for me. I got dressed into the paper smock and was lead into the room. I laid on the operation table. I never been so scared in my life, especially when the nurse strapped my legs with those Medieval looking belts. I just stared at the bright light on the ceiling, it reminded me of sitting in a dentist's chair. I felt the nurse stick these circle stickies all over me. She put the IV in me and I heard the heart monitor beeping. The doctor walked in "Hello there! You must be Monica!" He told me his name, but I don't remember. He then put a liquid into my IV, "This is gonna knock you right out, okay?" I just laid there helpless, hoping that nothing would go wrong. Then I start feeling whoozy. "How you feeling?" Someone asked. "I feel drunk." I replied. "What?" "I feel drunk." I then felt something cold be inserted in my vagina. It hurt.

I opened my eyes and was lying on my belly. My first thought was, "I'm on my belly? Where am I? It's all over. I'm not pregnant anymore." I laid there for...I don't know how long. I then heard a bed roll next to me. I saw a girl about my age. She was still under the anesthesia and was talking, "Can I scratch my nose?" Then I heard a couple more beds roll in.

I put my clothes back on and was told to wait in this small room where I had waited previously just before the abortion. I sat down. "Did you get it done?" I looked up and saw a woman, about in her late 20s. I nodded. "Did it hurt?" She asked. "No, they put you to sleep." I said. "Oh ok, I'm really scared." A couple minutes later the nurse called her in. I waited in that waiting room for about 2 hours, starving to death. There was a TV, Whoopi Goldberg was bitching about something on the View. I heard she had several abortions, even one she gave herself. More and more women came in, some who had gotten the surgery done and ones who were waiting to be called in. I looked around and noticed that they were all different types of women. One was about my age and had 3 kids already. Another was in her 40s, her kids all grown. Another was my age, and said she needed to finish school. There was one girl I wondered about. She was busy texting on her phone, sobbing. I felt bad and wanted to give her a hug. Then I threw up.

After what seemed like an eternity, I was told I could leave. I walked outside and saw my friend and she immediately gave me a big hug. I looked around for Bruce. I saw him in the car, sitting in the front passenger seat listening to his ipod. We got in the car, Bruce didn't say a single word. Not even a "You ok? How'd it go?" We got to his house to drop him off. He got out the car. "Bruce, go in real quick and we'll go to an ATM and get the money." I said. "I can't,” He said, "My daughter's coming over she'll be over in a few minutes. I'll talk to you later."

I finally got home and immediately plopped onto my bed. My phone buzzed, I got a text from Bruce. "You're really stupid you know that? You actually thought I was gonna pay you the money?" I was immediately in tears, "What are you talking about? You PROMISED YOU'RE PAYING ME BACK!" "I don't have to do anything! You're so stupid the only reason I was nice to you was to make sure you got that abortion. And now that you're not pregnant with my child, you're not my problem! Bye!" I was enraged, "you're paying me back whether you like it or not, you fucking promised and you're gonna do it!" "Don't you dare come to my house uninvited, remember, that red bandana I wear in my pocket has a real significant meaning and coming over here can be hazardous to your health." "I don't give a shit!!!! You're paying me back I don’t care what the fuck you wear in your pocket!" "Text me again, and I'll report you to the police for harassment." "Start calling them now! I'm not gonna stop texting you."

I never cried so hard in my life. I couldn't even breathe. I was so disappointed in myself. How could I be so stupid? How could I believe that he would pay me back? I hated myself for being so gullible. I should have waited until I got the money from him first. Why did I trust him?

I hated Bruce. I wanted the worse thing to happen to him. I wanted him to get shot and never be able to move again. I wondered, how many girls has he done this to? How many has he screwed over and tricked? How could someone be so heartless and cruel?

A few hours later my mom came home. She walked in my room and sat on the bed, "I'm sorry you had to go through this. See what the consequences are? I'm going to have to bring you to the gyno and you'll have to get tested for every STD. Who knows what you have." I didn't say anything. She was finally talking to me, I wasn't diseased anymore. "You know,” She said, "You're really lucky you live in this. In Costa Rica abortion is illegal. You're lucky you were able to get this done." She walked away.

Yeah, real lucky.

Before this all happened I always told myself that I would get an abortion if I got pregnant. It's nowhere near as easy as it sounds. For the next couple weeks I would have to deal with bleeding and almost passing out several times. It was the most difficult decision I had to make in my life. The pain is incurable. I worry if I'll have trouble getting pregnant again. I feel angry and jealous when I see a pregnant woman, I feel as if she's trying to "show off". I get upset when I see a teen mother. I despise my mother for not supporting me like all those "goody goody" mothers do on those TV shows. Any decision making, as simple as deciding what to have for dinner, triggers a meltdown. As much as I am hurting, I'm glad that I did have a choice, even though I felt like I did not.

This story made me sad.  Sad that this young woman was given no other option, but to abort her baby. Sad that she had been used by a useless POS boyfriend, who wanted nothing more than to have sex with her.  Sad that her mother wasn’t willing to ask her what she wanted to do, but instead pushed her toward aborting her baby.  Sad that the family unit that once protected all their members, even the unborn ones, has been broken, and may never be repaired.

And it didn’t get by me the type of “counseling” she had at Planned Parenthood either.  Though the first counselor told her she should tell her parents, the second one didn’t seem to counsel her at all.

I had my "consultation" with the counselor. It was really just signing a million forms. There was no question like "You sure you wanna do this?" Just, "Ok sign this paper, this paper, this one too and I need to sign here and here and here..."

I suppose when you’ve herded enough young women through the process of getting an abortion, they all look the same. Never mind that they are individual women, with their own story to tell.  These clinic workers seem to have become complacent to abortion, and the effect it has on women, not to mention their babies, who are not allowed to take their first breath.  It’s clear to me that this young post-abortive woman, resents not having been given the choice, to give her baby life.

It’s All About The Agenda To Feminists

50396_280460422037043_691008167_n[1]The current #Pro-choice chatter on Twitter is regarding Jennie Linn McCormack, who took abortion pills to end her pregnancy… at approximately 18 to 20 weeks gestation.  It is against the law in Idaho, where she lives, for a woman to perform her own abortion.

From what I’ve read, the criminal case against her was dismissed, though charges could still be pressed against her.

Because there was no physical evidence – no sign of drugs in the fetus, no medicine package – a judge dismissed the criminal case, but left the door open to new charges if new evidence came to light.

I guess her admission to taking RU-486 isn’t proof enough?  In any case, that’s not where I want to go with this post.  I want to write about what I see as women endangering themselves, not only by taking abortion pills without being under the direct supervision of a physician, but also by their own risky lifestyles.

Jennie Linn McCormack could have bled to death.  At her advanced stage of pregnancy, with a well established placenta, she could have died.  I’ve seen no pro-abort mention that.  All I’ve seen is the typical feminist lip-syncing, when all they’re doing is advocating she continue the same lifestyle which got her in trouble in the first place!

Pro-aborts don’t care about Jennie Linn McCormack, the person, they care about their agenda!  She is a single mother of 3, and had just had an abortion a year and a half earlier.  Hello!!! Do we see a pattern here?  Yes, a pattern of risky, even stupid behavior, that lead to a well developed baby being killed and left on the back porch.  A pattern of risky behavior that has left a woman raising 3 kids alone.  A pattern of risky behavior that could have killed the mother of those kids.

But do pro-aborts care? No, it’s all about their desire for orgasms without consequences, and their abortion agenda.

To see what an 18 week fetus looks like, go over to Big Blue Wave. Suzanne has images to scale on that page.

All Ireland Pro-Life Rally, From A Pro-Aborts Point Of View.. Literally!

This morning (my time), I watched as @ariel_silvera on twitter, posted pictures she took as she counter protested, the All Ireland Rally For Life.  I thought it would be enlightening to post a few of her pictures, captioned of course, with her comments from twitter.  So here we go!
image
Pro-life participants were estimated to number several thousand.
image
Remember, those are her words, not mine. I don’t see ugly, I see happy people, attempting to defend against pro-abortion zealots.
image
Yes, because we must document events in which pro-aborts harass peaceful pro-lifers.  That harassment often ends up like this:
image
I wish I had a picture of that, I really do!

***Update.. someone just posted the following video.  Listen as the pro-aborts scream, I have no idea what they're screaming, but their attempts to get their message across are in vain.  I was supprised to see it was what appears to be a grown man who was arrested, and not some loud mouth with wierd hair.  Yeah, I said that.

I'm unable to embed the video, but you can watch/listen HERE

***Update.. Apparenty Ariel thinks she's hated, because I posted her pictures.  Not true Ariel. I think you've had a bad life, and I think you need help.  But hated?  No, you're not hated.

Pro-Choicer @blackdove78 Supports Terrorism and Violence Towards Women

Yesterday, my follower list on Twitter, was trolled by @vochoice, Voice of Choice, Todd Stave.  One of my pro-life followers, @MohamadanWatch, has apparently made it his/her personal mission to tweet about Muslims, Islam, and anything to do with Jihad.  @vochoice told me to look at @MohamadanWatch’s profile picture, I did. I posted it below.  It’s disturbing to say the least.  But racist? No.

Note the caption “is your daughter ready?”.  He obviously believes Muslims are a threat to society, and a threat to women and young girls. It is my opinion that he is entitled to his belief.  @vochoice pushed me to unfollow @MohamadanWatch, based on racism.  I refused.  I believe @MohamadanWatch’s opinion is not racist at all, rather, it’s religious.
I trolled @MohamadanWatch’s twitterfeed and posted the tweet below, in response to @vochoice.
image
The link in the tweet leads HERE.  That is just one example of the type of links @MohamadanWatch posts.  So while he brings attention to Islamic violence, @blackdove78 defends the terrorists.
image
So what started out as me being called a racist, was quickly changed to bigot.  Yes, I was called a bigot.  Surprised?  Me neither.  She obviously didn’t read any of the links posted by @MohamadanWatch.  She doesn’t care that people are killed by terrorists.  She doesn’t care about any possible threats toward women and girls.  I assume she would rather keep her head stuck in the sand when it comes to Islamic violence.  It’s like that pre-abortion ultrasound, what she doesn’t see won’t bother her.
She continues the harassment even today.  The Tumblr hate post she references regularly is HERE.
image
I felt the need bring to light how the left twists things, in order to make you appear racist and bigoted.  I hope I’ve made my point.

Reaching Out For Pro-Life Help - From South Africa

I received an email some time ago from N.K.B.  She was gracious to allow me to share it with you.  Your advice is requested.

-------------

I have been searching for a South African Pro Life blog or site that I could contribute to or find up to date information on abortion stat's etc but so far I have found a few that have very little info and any stat's they have only go back as far as 2008. It's hard to find any Pro Life organizations here that are either still operating or who actually make an effort to provide information if you ask for it.

I only become Pro Life last year when I came across a bunch of people arguing about abortion on Twitter, I had heard of the term abortion before but for some reason never bothered to investigate further. I had no idea how horrible it was...I decided to do some research and ever since then I have taken on any Pro "Choice" person I have come across. I have learnt how absolutely full of nonsense they are, especially when it comes to their Pro Abortion reasoning and in fact I've been called a women hater about a million times....this has all only happened online as I have yet to come
across any pro life or pro choice people in South Africa who will actually go out and take a stand, join marches or anything. I know there are Pro Lifer's who sit outside the abortion clinics here but it is in no way enough to change the laws here regarding abortion. So many people are ignorant when it comes to issues like abortion and it's annoying me.

The culture of death here is just as prevalent as it is across the world and the absolute ignorance when it comes to using protection during sex is just almost unbelievable. I get so sick of hearing about women having to go for backstreet abortions or the countless women that are dumping their live newborn babies into anything they can find, toilets, buckets, dumpsters..you name it. In fact there have been many occasions where people driving along the road have seen women putting their babies into the storm drains and leaving them there and that's hardly the worst of it.  There is no point in trying to get the idea of abstinence across to the people here as it is still the culture of some men here to sleep with/rape loads of women who then become pregnant.

Some may argue that the number of babies being aborted here is still a relatively small number compared to the rest of the world and that we shouldn't worry about it but I disagree because the fact that over a million innocent lives have been taken through abortion since it was legalized here is more than enough for people to stand up and say it's time to stop the murdering.

I would love to start a Pro Life NPO here and do everything in my power to make a difference in changing people's minds about abortion. I knew someone who had an abortion and when she told me I was completely shocked, I had spent over 10 years of my life as her friend but I never knew she would go to those sorts of measures to get rid of a child because it was an inconvenience to her. I want people to stop thinking of babies in the womb as aliens or lumps of tissue as so many pro abortion doctors will have you refer to them as....people need to know that life begins at conception and that even though our government seems to take no stand for either side we need to make the change that will get the abortion laws
changed.

You will never find news of abortions gone wrong here or have Pro Life marches broadcast on television because this country doesn't seem to care either way and if someone disagrees with that then I would like to know what is actually being done and what groups and organizations that are not American are doing here. I want to know what South African groups are doing to change the killing.... I want my daughters to be able to talk to their friends about the evil that abortion is and have information to give them and suggest groups they can join to make a difference. I want the only outcome of women's choices to be living ones.

Regards
N.K.B.

This is so sad.  That people can become this complacent when it comes to unborn, and even born babies.

Post-Abortive Women Need Love And Compassion, Not Jail

Pro-aborts are currently shooting themselves in the foot, touting the video below as “How to Stump an Anti-Choicer with One Seemingly Obvious Question”, as seen on RHRealityCheck.  Watch the video.

Pro-aborts would like everyone to believe that ‘hatred for women’ is at the base of the pro-life movement.  It’s not.

Quotes from the pro-lifers who were targeted in this video with the question (I’m paraphrasing), “What should happen (legally) to women who have illegal abortions?”.  The question was what pro-aborts refer to as a ‘loaded question’.  The answers were fairly consistent, and love was at the root of them.

“We should treat them with love”

“They need counseling, and they need help”

Clearly, pro-lifers do not hate women.  Just the opposite is true in fact.  The video shows the compassion of the pro-life movement.  We should probably thank the pro-aborts for bringing our love and compassion to light.

One final note on this.. Toward the end of the video, when a women, obviously being pressured to answer questions she was not prepared to answer, told the man to go ask Joe Scheidler, who was right down the street, I find it telling that Joes’ answers were omitted from the video.  That is, assuming the interviewer had the guts to go ask him.

Pregnant Woman Bites Tip Of Abusive Boyfriends Finger Off

From Ocala.com, an excerpt:

TAMPA — Hillsborough deputies say a 22-year-old man wielded a kitchen knife at his pregnant girlfriend and punched her in the face. But she fought back and allegedly bit off the tip of his finger in self-defense.

The incident happened Monday. Officials charged Reginald Gefferie with aggravated battery on a pregnant female and false imprisonment. He was taken to the hospital but doctors couldn't reattach the finger tip. [emphasis is mine]

Hmmm, wonder why he was charged with aggravated battery on a pregnant female?  After all, it’s just a lump of cells in her womb, not unlike every other lump of cells that form her body. Right feminists?

As for his finger tip that can never be replaced… gotta hate that. Smile 

A Matter of Conscience

Robin Marty’s spin on a jailed woman being refused the second dose of an abortifacient, makes me wonder if she has a conscience, or even understands what it means to have one.

The article Robin links to is from Addicting Info; she pulled this excerpt:

A Tampa woman whom we only know as R.W., was raped. She was treated by the rape crisis center, who gave her two emergency contraception pills, one to be taken immediately and one to be taken 12 hours later. When she reported the rape to the police, they uncovered an arrest warrant on R.W. for failure to pay restitution and failure to appear. After she was arrested, a Hillsborough County guard confiscated her second pill, claiming it was against her religious beliefs.

Says Robin:

This isn't just about women denied access when jailed (Although that in itself is problematic -- should a woman fear reporting a crime because she may be arrested? [emphasis is mine]

Should anyone?  Robin apparently thinks women should be exempt from arrest should they, 1) Not pay restitution as ordered by the court, and 2) Not show up for court. Really?  What happened to equality?  What happened to responsibility?  Oh wait, these are feminists we’re talking about.

No, this case also brings to light how those who are "in charge" when it comes to dispensing are able to inflict their own moral beliefs onto someone else. In states like Kansas, which seek to expand conscience clauses well beyond health workers, the putative "rights" if those who wield power are being allowed to trump those of the patient in need.

Or is it that Robin believes people without a conscience, should be able to inflict their beliefs (or lack of) onto someone who does have one?  That’s exactly what it is.

First, I don’t know of any jail that allows prisoners to keep the drugs  they bring in with them, that includes aspirin.  So confiscating the drug was protocol.  Second, if the guard had given the abortifacient to another guard, who in turn gave it to the woman, the primary guard would still be responsible for killing an unborn child.  It’s no different than handing a hammer to someone else to beat a child to death, so you don’t have to live with it on your conscience.

When it comes to conscience, all I can say is, at least pro-lifers have one.

It should be stated that the jailed woman’s rape, which was tragic, did not result in pregnancy.

Going After Birth Control Means Certain Defeat For Personhood

The Raw Story has an article on the ill-fated Ohio Personhood Amendment.  Personhood Ohio failed to gain enough signatures to get the initiative placed on the November ballot.
This initiative was destined for failure.  Here’s why.  As written on their website:
The Ohio Personhood Amendment will insert Section 16(b):
"Person" and "men" defined:
(A) The words "person" in Article 1, Section 16, and "men" in Article 1, Section 1, apply to every human being at every stage of the biological development of that human being or human organism, including fertilization.
(B) Nothing in this Section shall affect genuine contraception that acts solely by preventing the creation of a new human being; or human "eggs" or oocytes prior to the beginning of the life of a new human being; or reproductive technology or In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) procedures that respect the right to life of newly created human beings.
Part B of the initiative clearly states that hormonal birth control pills (BCP’s) would be banned.  Ok, maybe it’s not clear to some people, but it’s clear to me.  It’s a well known fact that BCP’s can allow conception to take place, albeit rarely.  That being said, anything that can allow conception, would be banned.  Most women won’t sign up for something that would put them in a position to not be able to prevent pregnancy.
Does my opinion mean I’m not pro-life?  No.  It means I’m a realist.  When pro-life organizations start focusing attention on the fetuses killed by abortion, and stop focusing on what creates the illusion of ‘controlling women’, then these initiatives might have a chance. 
Until a better alternative for reversible birth control is invented, we must not try to ban women from preventing pregnancy with the only tools they have.

Does Appearance Really Matter?

The appearance of a 6 week embryo is certainly different from the appearance of a 16 week fetus.  No one disputes that.  What pro-aborts do dispute, is that the result of an abortion at 6 weeks isn’t any different than the result of an abortion at 16 weeks, for the baby that is.  The end result is that in both cases, what is a developing human being, is killed.

From Baby2See.com At 6 weeks:

  • The embryo has reached a size of about 8 mm (1/4 inch) in length.
  • The spinal cord, which until now has been open, is beginning to close.
  • The first blood cells and blood vessels are developing.
  • Blood moves through these primitive vessels connected to the yolk sac.
  • A pipe-shaped heart is formed and begins to beat.
  • The brain begins to divide into 5 parts.
  • Optic pits form the start of the developing eye.
  • The cells destined to be the arms and legs are in place.

The human body is remarkable, and a 6 week embryo has went through some remarkable development in that short amount of time.

Someone posted pictures of her 6 week abortion. Another effort to de-stigmatize the tragedy that is abortion.

IMG_0840-1

We can see the blood, and I’m guessing the “blob of tissue” closest to us, is the gestational sac.  Personally, I would like to see the contents of the jar strained out, so Jane could see the embryo she just allowed the abortionist to suck out its not so safe harbor, the womb.  It’s likely she would see something like this.

embryo

At 6 weeks of pregnancy, my abortion looked very different than the images I saw when I entered the clinic that day. (From Jane’s post)

Yes Jane, at 6 weeks, it would.  The actual size of a 6 week embryo is about 1/4 of an inch long.  No, it doesn’t look like a newborn, or even a 16 week fetus, but to paraphrase Kathy Ireland, it looks exactly the way it’s supposed to at that stage of development.

Pro-aborts say abortion prevents this ‘blob’ from becoming a newborn.  But when you stop and think about it, doesn’t killing a newborn prevent it from becoming a teenager?  Think about it. Stop the killing.

Dear Canada, This Is Just The Beginning

I’ve been reading a bit on the “The New Abortion Caravan”.  First, a brief review of the original Abortion Caravan.

In 1970, hundreds of women gathered in Vancouver to protest limited access to abortion. They then climbed into vehicles and began to drive across the country in what history has come to call "The Abortion Caravan." Many Canadian historians credit this Caravan with laying the groundwork to the 1988 Supreme Court decision to strike down all abortion laws.

A core team of pro-abortion protestors drove from Vancouver to Ottawa. When they arrived they left a coffin—representing women who died from illegal abortions—at the Prime Minister's house and forced Parliament to shut down for over half an hour. The nation was forced to consider an issue they had previously ignored.

Now, The New Abortion Caravan, is forcing the people of Canada to look at the truth, of what abortion does to human babies.  It’s graphic, it’s emotional, and it has the pro-aborts outraged.

Watch this video, especially the girl with pink hair, as she assaults a man with a camera.

An article from Socialist Worker states:

Unions such as CAW, USW, OPSEU and CUPE were well represented at protests across the country.

It’s not surprising that union thuggery is seemingly as prominent in Canada, as it is here in the United States.  The article cited above is titled “Anti-Choice Caravan Fails”.  But it didn’t fail.  It’s brought the atrocity that is abortion, to the attention of people across Canada.  And this.. is just the beginning.

We interrupt this stupid fairy tale with some facts……..

A guest post by anonnermus:

There is this stupid post popping up all over Facebook . It has the ignorant (late) comedian, George Carlin (who by the way, now knows that atheism is not all it’s cracked up to be) spewing his little diatribe about how Conservatives don’t care for children after they are born.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AvF1Q3UidWM (yes, he is offensive)

Now there is enough ignorant ranting in this nine minute segment to sink a ship, but I’m just going to focus on the attack on Conservatives for not being concerned with children, or charitable (you will note, that every solution to the problem he listed as good, was government sponsored, which = cost to taxpayers, which is statistically shown to inhibit personal contribution to charity). At any rate, this is an oft used argument by the radical, okay-with-baby-killing, “pro-choice” crowd. For some reason, they would like us to believe that guaranteeing mothers the legal right to kill their offspring is a benevolent and charitable act that will spare someone else pain and suffering, and they would dearly love ‘everyone else’ (who ever that is), to pay for those abortions. A good parenting choice, you know. Yeah, sure…….every time I run into financial trouble, adverse life events, etc., the first parenting choice that comes to mind is to kill one of my kids…..yep….

But I digress……

Here are a few stats for you liberal, brainless, AND UNCHARITABLE people, whose best solution to poverty is to doggedly promote feticide, and doggedly push for a nanny state, cradle to grave welfare system, because apparently it is YOU all who don’t want to care for babies after they are born. These statistics are from research by, and published in a book written by Arthur C. Brooks (an independent, by the way), a professor at Syracuse University.

http://www.realclearpolitics.com/articles/2008/03/conservatives_more_liberal_giv.html

And just as a shout out to you poor ignorant atheists who doggedly cry “persecution!!!” but spend most of your time heaping persecution on Christians – and since George Carlin was a self-proclaimed atheist, I thought this paragraph was of particular interest:

“The single biggest predictor of someone's altruism, Willett says, is religion. It increasingly correlates with conservative political affiliations because, as Brooks' book says, "the percentage of self-described Democrats who say they have 'no religion' has more than quadrupled since the early 1970s." America is largely divided between religious givers and secular nongivers, and the former are disproportionately conservative. One demonstration that religion is a strong determinant of charitable behavior is that the least charitable cohort is a relatively small one -- secular conservatives.” (bold, underlined, italics are mine)

So…….once again we find the pro-baby-killers spewing the mindless, unsubstantiated drivel of the radical zealot. Mind numbed, kool-aide drinking folks who get their talking points from the hierarchy driving the abortion industry, i.e. the profiteers, without even realizing it. - people on the wrong side of a cause that uses them as (to co-opt a phrase by a well-known and charitable radio talk show host) ‘mind -numbed robots’. The fact of the matter is religious conservatives shell more of their personal money out to benefit the impoverished than wealthy liberals, or any liberal for that matter. Period. Full stop. End of discussion.

Let me leave you with this excellent quote by Texas State Supreme Court Justice Willett, in case you didn’t bother to read the article:

"The belief that liberals care more about the poor may scratch a partisan or ideological itch, but the facts are hostile witnesses."

I know that you would all like to believe that Christian, conservative, pro-life people don’t care about children who are in poverty……...and George Carlin would probably like some iced - water………….
