Do you get a bit weepy when Sarah McLachlan sings “In The Arms of The Angels” alongside images of abused, sickly, and starving pets? Are you, like me, excited about the prospect of “life” – bacterial or microbial – being found on Mars, or elsewhere in our solar system? Are you vegan, or actively concerned about the care and treatment of livestock slated for human consumption? If you answered yes, then you probably think yourself a caring person with a functioning heart, like me. Now….with that said…..are you also a supporter of Planned Parenthood and unlimited access to abortion at any time….perhaps on the basis of “a woman’s right to choose” what happens to “nothing but a clump of cells”? If so, no matter how compassionate you may think yourself….you are actually a monster.
Since 1973, according to the Guttmacher Institute (AGI) and the CDC, more than 53 million legal abortions have taken place in the United States. As of 2014, 19% of pregnancies in the U.S. ended in abortion. That’s roughly 1 out of 5. The place that does the most business for abortion providers in the U.S. is ( shockingly ) Washington, D.C., where – as of 2014 – 38% of pregnancies ended in abortion. That’s roughly 4 out of 10, in case you are a recent college graduate. Again, according to AGI and the CDC, 86% of abortions are undertaken by unmarried women. In the same report, women with multiple abortions accounted for 35% of the 2015 total. 80,000 of the 913,000 abortions performed in 2015 in the U.S., were given to women who had 3 or more procedures previously. Huh. That’s weird. That sounds like the most horrible form of birth control ever. And just think, about 14% of all of these abortions were paid for by public funds, or in other words, your money.
If those numbers weren’t shocking and saddening enough, they don’t reflect the recent law passed in New York….a law celebrated by Governor Andrew Cuomo – you know, the brother of CNN “journalist” Chris Cuomo – both sons of lifelong Democrat politician Mario Cuomo – and given a standing ovation by the state legislature. The cause for the applause and flowery language about “women’s rights being upheld in the age of Trump”? Because now, in NY, you can have an abortion for any reason up to 6 months, and from 6 months up until the due date you can have an abortion for any “health reason”…..including being nervous, anxious, or depressed. The best part of this super-empowering law? If the baby survives the procedure, now clinic workers can legally kill it. Oh, I say “clinic workers” because another part of the law is that an actual doctor isn’t required…..almost any person employed at the place can now perform an abortion.
For some progressive politicians, like Virginia’s Governor Ralph Northam, the New York law doesn’t go far enough. He thinks that you should be able to deliver a healthy baby and “make it comfortable” for awhile while the woman and her physician decide whether or not to kill it. After normal birth. Sound crazy? Well, let him explain himself:
Still not sold? Well, at least we’re not leaving the little tykes to die of exposure on the side of a mountain when they are unwanted, like the ancient Spartans did, right? We’re not barbarians….barbarians would use tongs to dismember recognizable little babies in the womb, pull out the pieces, and then sell them. Oh wait…..oops…that’s exactly what we’re doing.
Let’s be clear: I am not saying that victims of rape and incest shouldn’t have “reproductive choice”. I’m also not saying that women who’s lives are threatened by a problem pregnancy, or those pregnant with a catastrophically disabled child, shouldn’t have abortion as an option. What I am saying is that if you’re ok with the current justification for, and rate of, abortion…..and the standards with which it is implemented, then you seriously need to reconsider what guides your moral compass, if you have one.
Former Planned Parenthood clinic-director Abby Johnson ( check her story at AbbyJohnson.org ), has extensively detailed the agenda of the industry she was once employed by : everything from monthly quotas to the absence of any offered prenatal care….all the way up to performing so may abortions per day that the sterilizing auto-clave couldn’t keep up – requiring the use of dish soap to wash instruments between customers. Does that sound empowering to you?
It used to be the old mantra of “safe, legal, and rare”. Now it has become “anytime, everytime, and as often as possible”. Welcome to State-sanctioned infanticide, brought to you by the Progressive Democrat party, and endorsed and cheered on by millions of your neighbors.
