Roe v Wade Roundup

“Ask Them What They Mean By ‘Choice’” Blog Day

The idea is simple. Any time any of us reads pro-aborts spouting their obscure “choice” rhetoric on a blog, website, Facebook, or Twitter, we call them out on it. We ask them to explain what the “choice” is.

Is it to eat carrots rather than broccoli? To wear red instead of blue? No, of course “choice” is code for killing babies. What’s their problem with the A-word?

Yes, this is a shameless scheme to suck oxygen out of the pro-aborts’ social media universe, to deny them any time whatsoever to support abortion without defending it.

Pro-lifers don’t help people after birth? Nonsense. As I’ve noted many times, pro-lifers do way more for the women before and after birth (and even post-abortion) than pro-legalized abortionists do.  They do it with their own time and money.

But note that they aren’t obliged to do so.  When the pro-aborts reflexively spout the “pro-lifers don’t help” canard, ask if they could speak out against infanticide even if they weren’t willing to adopt the children.

Also, if they are truly pro-choice and not pro-abortion, they would have the same obligation to help after birth.

Read the first chapter of Unplanned for free

Unplanned is a heart-stopping personal drama of life-and-death encounters, a courtroom battle, and spiritual transformation that speaks hope and compassion into the political controversy that surrounds this complex issue. Telling Abby’s story from both sides of the abortion clinic property line, this book is a must-read…

Regulators Ignored Killer Abortion Doc: Grand Jury – the pro-legalized abortionists hope this story goes away soon.  They try to feign outrage but they bitterly fight for the right to destroy the children just before birth.  How can they be so shocked that someone will finish the job when the abortion fails to deliver a dead baby?

What should be highlighted, but isn’t, is the faux outrage from the pro-choicers about this “doctor.”  Of course we know what he did was beyond reprehensible.  But their view is that his real crime was not doing the abortions right the first time.  Had he killed the babies literally minutes earlier everything would have been fine with them.

It is just another name for infanticide:

When Ruth Bader Ginsburg writes that partial-birth abortion (performed by delivering the baby in the breech position, stabbing it in the head with scissors with the neck lodged in the cervix, suctioning its brains out, and then delivering the corpse that had been alive moments earlier) is a constitutional right, she sanctions the murder of babies who have already been born – because those babies are no more human, no more special, than the ones who are fair targets.  As Abby Johnson wrote in her new book, “Unplanned”, while assisting in an abortion,

“But this time, the image was complete  I could see the entire, perfect profile of a baby. It looks just like Grace at 12 weeks, I thought, surprised, remembering my very first peek at my daughter, three years before, snuggled securely inside my womb.  The image before me now looked the same, only clearer, sharper.”

Respecting human life is not an optional part of a civilised society, which is why the “pro-choice” language is so fallacious.

Ironic title of the year from the Huffington Post (yeah, it is early in the year, but this one may still be tops come 12/31): Remember Roe v. Wade — and Stop the Violence (it was a pro-abortion piece, of course).  Uh, yes . . . the violence . . .

The comments there were a litany of bad pro-abortion bumper sticker reasoning.

These are simple, essential ways to protect women’s health. Thank you! It’s baffling to me that a simple medical procedure produces so much violence and controvers­­y.

This procedure kills an innocent human being. That is a scientific fact.

It’s hard to believe that we still have to fight for our right to reproducti­­ve freedom.

That is an argument against someone saying you shouldn’t have the right to use birth control. In the case of abortion, one has already reproduced a human being. So this has nothing to do with reproducti­ve freedom.

Link arms shout out loud, stay away from my medical decisions! This is mine, my family and my doctors business.

As with nearly all pro-abortion arguments, this ignores the unborn human being who gets destroyed.

Amanda Marcotte: Hey, let’s blame another mass murder on conservatives – You have to be super-duper-pro-abortion to try and pin the Philly doctor murders on pro-lifers.

How much evidence do we need to know that a “No strings attached” sex culture will lead to pain, misery and death?

Texas doctors opting out of Medicare at alarming rate — just more of the Law of Unintended Consequences at work.  Guess what? If the government makes bad laws and tries to stiff people then behavior changes.  But of course, the 2,000+ page health care bill that none of its supporters actually read won’t have any negative consequences . . .

Naked liberalism: The desire for Congressional mandates to have conservative web sites link to liberal sites. Give it a listen.  It is ridiculous on multiple levels.  Aside from the pesky un-Constitutionality, how would you possibly measure and enforce it?

What is morbidly ironic is Obama’s chiding to listen to opposing views.  That is a two-way street.  I love asking liberals how much conservative media they consume (other than the extremely well informed Libs that hang out here ;-)).  It is usually something in the neighborhood of zero.

Also fun is asking them to state your positions, even though they disagree with you.  For example, I know all the most popular pro-abortion arguments and am glad to debunk them.  No straw men required.  But it is very rare to see a pro-abort be able to articulate the views of pro-lifers, even though they disagree with them.

Check out Roxanne’s post on Throwing Women Under the Socialist/Progressive Bus.  Just a sample:

Then there’s the complete disregard for women’s health and well-being.  The Left is furious that crisis pregnancy centres do not provide abortions nor refer women to them; nevertheless, they seem to not care that Planned Parenthood promotes abortion and will refuse to provide adoption referrals and gives almost no prenatal care to pregnant women.

The Left cares no more about women’s health than about their reproductive autonomy. Although the link between abortion and breast cancer has been well-established (and studies that find anything else are methodologically unsound ), Obama’s change.org toutedRep. Harry Waxman’s report which criticised crisis pregnancy centres for mentioning the connection – and justified themselves with one single report from 1997.  They also claim that women who abort do not experience future fertility problems, despite the fact that women who have abortions are three times as likely to deliver a premature baby in the future,first-trimester abortions are associated with a higher rate of subsequent miscarriages, and abortion can cause infertility, PID, and a host of other problems.  The Leftist’s claim that abortion does not cause psychological distress would be comical, if not for the horrible pain that women experience post-abortion.

Brrrr… Scientists Issue New Warning of Imminent Food & Ethanol Shortages Due to Global Cooling – Shocking!  But those scientists couldn’t be wrong.  Hat tip: Wes

It is truly a bizarre, upside down world in international politics: Iran was elected to the United Nation’s Commission on the Status of Women.

Then the U.S. representative apologizes to China for our “human rights abuses” in Arizona.  Hey, just ask China what they do if people come into their country without paperwork and demand free food, clothing and education.  Ask them about the North Korean refugees they send back to certain brutal deaths.

And more and more Obama representatives admit they haven’t even read Arizona’s bill — even though they condemn it.

Great response from Arizona to Los Angeles over their boycott — Paraphrase: “Hey, we supply 25% of your power, so if you are serious about your convictions then we’ll send the electrons elsewhere.

Hillbuzz on Ann Coulter: Priceless.  We live in strange times.  Here are some tidbits.

Now, for just a moment, appreciate the Bizarroworld we currently live in:

(1) We are gay guys in Boystown who, until 2008, detested Ann Coulter

(2) We are now reading Ann Coulter

(3) We agree with every damn word Ann Coulter says

(4) Sometimes, we think we’ve actually moved to the right of Ann Coulter

We’re still the same guys we always were, except that our eyes opened to the lies the DNC always sold us about Republicans and conservatives in general.

If the DNC has permanently alienated guys like us — who never in their lives thought they’d be reading and agreeing with Ann Coulter — then the Democrat Party is as good as Whig already.

The current Socialist-Democrat party has no moderates.  It is 100% lefty, baby.  And its PC-policies towards Muslims — those misunderstood murdering Care Bears — are going to get an awful lot of people killed, once the Religion of Peace stops sending its B-team to blow things up and dispatches operatives who know how to work clocks and who can successfully light their underoos and diapers on fire.

We now love Coulter so much, she just might make us straight.

David fired up his blog again — great stuff, especially for someone who just finished his first year of college!

I used to think that a triple-X domain for p*rn would help with that awful problem provided that it got it off the .com domain, as it would make it easier to filter bad sites.  But the efforts to make that happen go the wrong direction.  Too bad our gutless, paid-off politicians of both parties do nothing to enforce existing laws (kinda like the border situation).

Half of abortions done to foster care girls are by a judge’s order — Truly twisted.  Abortion is the opposite of justice.

Obama [Administration] Removed Faisal Shahzad From Terror Surveillance List Before Attack

Sources tell CBS News that would-be Times Square bomber Faisal Shahzad appeared on a Department of Homeland Security travel lookout list – Traveler Enforcement Compliance System (TECS) –between 1999 and 2008 because he brought approximately $80,000 cash or cash instruments into the United States.

The person who killed 14 people at Ft Hood last fall was one such suspect whose JTTF investigation was suspiciously shut down around this time last year.

Our luck may run out soon . . .

Iran Gains Seat on UN Commission on the Status of Women. Obama Administration Silent — Fox, meet henhouse.  Why no complaints from the major feminist groups?  Is this another one of those Clinton-style things where as long as someone is pro-abortion the “feminists” will never criticize him?

At least 32 African-American Republicans running for Congress this year — Oops, someone forgot to tell them we’re racists.  Seriously, I hope the scales start tipping and more blacks realize that the Democrats have done nothing but hold them down for many decades.  Liberals are all for the “choices” that result in black abortion rates being three times as high as whites, but opposed to school choice that would help more blacks succeed.  That’s just one example of many.   Need more?  Go visit Detroit, the petri dish of Liberal politics, education and unions.

Excellent points by Pastor Timothy on Franklin Graham’s dis-invitation to the Pentagon.  I’m with Timothy on the National Day of Prayer (“meh”) but isn’t it sort of a “duh” statement for a Christian minister to think Islam is false?  If he thought Islam was true, wouldn’t he become a Muslim?  Are the Imams required to say Christianity is true?
