On Jan. 22, our nation commemorated the 40th anniversary of the Supreme Court’s ruling on Roe v. Wade that legalized abortion in America by a 7-2 vote. Steeped in “right to privacy” language, the court ruled that women should have a legal right to abortion. On Friday, hundreds of thousands flocked to the nation’s capitol to commemorate the 55 million lives that have been lost to abortion in the last 40 years, and the mothers and fathers who still bear the scars of their choices. We remembered the 55 million children’s lives lost to abortion, but also that millions
Abortion has in fact become a tool for men to pressure women into sex objects for the formers sexual gratification with the expectation that any natural issue there from can be eliminated. All rights but no responsibility. The irony is that with the advent of "women liberating" contraception and abortion the rate and nature of sexual relations has radically change to become one of mutual exploitation. At the same time the rate of STD´s and out of wedlock children has exploded.

This is a moving article. Oh Yeah the culture would have us believe it is all about men and their sexual mores--Well think again. No one who has watched a young man in the agony of losing his potential child without even a right to protest while tears of loss shakes his entire being accepts that false mess of pottage. Those same not daddies can even never trust a woman again long enough to seek a real relationship. while such a young man grieved his equally young sister-in-law cried with him because she could not born the child she wanted so much. The perplexed wife who so easily threw away her child also threw away her marriage on mommy´s advice.
To me,when you look at white abortionists killing black babies it´s a form of genocide under the cover of a law that´s not even on the books.Instead of being dragged before the Hague for a genocide tribunal,they get paid handsomely by the taxpayers for murdering the black baby.
This isn´t by chance either,it goes back to Margaret Sanger´s war on black babies,so the left never gives up on their most heinous people,no matter how evil they are.
The other leg of abortion is taking God out of the equation.Abortion is aout the coldest slap in God´s face you can make but if you don´t believe in God,you don´t fear retribution.
I have relatives who raised their own children, several foster kids & even managed to take in & raise another family member´s children when she was going through severe depression. They loved having a house full of kids & never saw them as a burden. Growing up, I remember being dismayed that they seemed to have too many kids to manage - I thought their family situation was unseemly & chaotic. Today, the mom & dad are elderly & are having health problems. Each of their children, who all live close by, take turns spending the night with them throughout the week. This distributes the care-giving responsibility & greatly comforts the parents who no longer drive. I now think their situation is ideal. Large families tend to take care of each other. Children may seem like a burden to the young, but they sure come in handy when you are old & lonely.
One day I saw a TV program called The Long Island Medium. She is like John Edwards in that it is hard to disbelieve her. In this episode a woman had come to her to see if she could contact her deceased child. The Medium said she saw someone showing her two blankets, one blue, one pink. The woman said sheepishly, "one was a death and one was a termination". She had not counted the termination as a child.
As we are being made to live within a secular society now, makes it a lot easier for people to make others (i.e., the gummint) responsible for the bad decisions the people make. Like we are surprised that belief in the Creator is being replaced by obeyance to and faith in the State. Big difference, no?
Have you ever read ´Heaven is for Real´? It´s the story of a 3 year old boy who has a heavenly experience while in surgery. About a year later, the boy tells his mother who had a miscarriage prior to the birth of the boy, that he had met the sister in heaven. Jesus´ father adopted her. The little boy did not know of his mother´s miscarriage prior to meeting the sister. Book is easy to read.
Well Femanazis you took the Ladies off the pedestal and put them in a fox hole. As usual with leftist the law of unintended consequences has not provided fulfillment, happiness or liberated women, soon they may have to get a draft card. Welcome to the "Hookup" "Oral Sex isn´t sex" world where the Bill Clinton´s Rule and nobody like the opposite that well.
Many excellent posts here. Abortion is mens liberation making it possible for them to avoid responsibility and never become real men. It is also black genocide fulfilling Margaret Sangers racist, elitist, hitlerian eugenecist vision of purifying the gene pool of inferior life.
Even Roe in the infamous case has decried her arbortion. She was shocked at the emotional repercussions that she experienced by having an abortion. About 20 years ago I saw her on a news program telling her story. It was short and sad. If she had it to do over again, she wouldn´t. She isn´t the only one. Pretty damning testimony.
an excellent read "In reality, Roe v. Wade imprisons women by denying the very apex of femininity: the bearing and nurturing life". I have even read the comments below and would put them 50% vs. 50% with the left repeating garbage about all those poor neglected kids. The problem with poor kids as we know is Government bureaucracies which tie up money meant to help them and their parents, foster parents using said $ for their own gratification. This year during 2013 MFL my hopes were confirmed the tide is turning. Forget the MSM those kids who were 5 yr ago in High School are now in colleges, I have seen them then and I saw them now. 300 people from Nashville, TN driving 12 hr in buses, Arizona, TX and many more. 10 years ago I didn´t see banners of Notre Dame and Vanderbilt. This genocide will end thanks to the Pro-Life generation.
If back in the fifties Hugh Hefner had predicted our current situation, with "hooking up," the public discussion of oral sex (because the President did it), and easy abortion, it would have been thought to be the wild dreams of a sexual deviant.
Now we have a world that no one could have predicted, and 55,000,000 dead babies.
As #1 said, all the benefits accrue to the men, with easy sex and no responsibility--so we have a society of grown men who act like frat boys.
This won´t be popular, but the end result is a demographic shift in this country. The lack of a replacement population for a growing economy meant that workers would flood the country to fill the vacuum. Many from Asia and Latin America. Families even a couple of generations ago had six or so offspring (my great grand parents had 10). Then it dropped to three and who knows where it is now. Let´s ask Obama if he cares.
You spent 20 years impairing your normal procreative power via conrtaceptive drugs and devices? Voila, hundreds of thousands of infertile women looking for expensive (and often futile) reproductive repair tenchnologies.
We spent 30 years avoiding, evading, deconstructing and devaluing marriage? Now you can´t find a decent marriage partner for love nor money.
We spent 40 years establishing the legal "principle" that human lives we think are a bother can simply be "terminated"? Behold terminal care in the UK and soon in the USA: sedate the old, cut off their nutrition/hydration and let them starve to death.
A society that´s killed 55 million of its children? Perhaps there´s a power (or Power) out there that could give us all the chance to play the fetus, and scrape us off the surface of the earth.
God said to Cain "What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother´s blood crieth unto me from the ground. And now art thou cursed from the earth, which hath opened her mouth to receive thy brother´s blood from thy hand;the blood of his brother, who he killed cried out to heaven." Gen. 4:11,12 What must the voice of 55 million babies blood sound like in the ears of God? What curse/curses of God must America now be under?
This was a letter to the editor in a local paper. "All this talk about gun control has got me thinking. Gun control legislation is to the Democrats as anti-abortion legislation is to the Republicans. Some people think the two are completely different.
For example, guns are violent and inflict death on innocent children, whereas abortion ... better forget that one — I guess there is no difference here.
The current popular paradigm in our country is to ban all guns, you know, protect innocent bystanders and little children from the nut with a gun.
Another popular paradigm is to keep abortion free (at taxpayers’ expense) and readily accessible.
What is the difference you may ask? With abortion, the bystanders are safe, while it is only innocent babies who are slaughtered (over 50 million since 1973).
As you can probably tell, I don’t see much difference between the arguing that is occurring about anti-gun legislation and anti-abortion legislation with the exception that by outlawing abortion we might actually do something to protect the lives of innocent children.
I see an area for compromise here. I would be willing to give up some of my gun rights if the federal government (and pro choice people) would be willing to give up some of their rights to free and unobstructed access to abortion.
After all, I strongly believe that if all this bickering between the president and pro-gun Americans is truly about protecting innocent children (from being murdered at another person’s hand) then the unborn innocent need to be included in the dialogue too."
I am with you #20. I am willing not to have a submachine gun, rocket launcher, and flame thrower if they are willing to give up all abortions except in the case that it will physically kill the mother.
Spot on. One of the most enthusiastic supporters of abortion was "saintly Catholic" Teddy Kennedy. Since he allegedly bedded thousands of women, the paternity suits resulting from only a few of the bimbos getting knocked up would have bankrupted him. No one can tell me he didn´t have a personal stake in the issue.
When I was in high school, I joined the ROTC initially because I was attracted to the uniforms. I figured they would provide an opportunity to escape the constant berating by fellow students owing to my outdated clothing. I was fascinated with the guns and became an excellent marksman, winning several marksmanship awards. I also led a drill team, which was very advanced with the art of disassembling and reassembling military rifles in record time. I advanced through the ranks, eventually becoming the city’s ROTC executive officer and was offered a scholarship to West Point. I gained great respect for
SHAW AIR FORCE BASE, S.C. -Officials at Shaw Air Force Base are trying to determine what to do about a holiday display after a Nativity scene was taken down last week. Air Force spokeswoman Lt. Keavy Rake said Tuesday a Nativity display was set up Friday by a group of volunteers from the base chapel at a small lake on the installation. The site was near where a tree lighting ceremony was scheduled Friday evening. Rake says the Military Religious Freedom Foundation lodged a complaint about the display through the Air Force in Washington. Paul Loebe, spokesman for the foundation, said
Majority Leader Harry Reid says the Senate will not extend current farm law if Congress can´t agree on a new farm bill before adjourning next week. House leaders have reserved space on their agenda this week for extending the current law until the end of January. Lawmakers fear that milk prices might rise sharply if dairy subsidies expire Jan. 1. The House and Senate have passed separate versions, but with widespread differences over crop subsidies and how much to cut food stamps. House Speaker John Boehner said last week that the House should extend the current law while negotiators seek
WASHINGTON — Majority Democrats in the Senate won approval Tuesday for one of President Barack Obama´s key judicial nominees, the first of his picks to win confirmation since they weakened the chamber´s filibuster rules. Senators voted 56-38 to approve Washington lawyer Patricia Millett to join the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, the nation´s second most powerful court. Both sides saw Millett´s appointment as pivotal. It will give Democratic-appointed judges a 5-4 majority over those chosen by Republican presidents for that court, which rules on the legality of White House actions and federal agency regulations. Obama praised
In response to Dylan Byers: MSNBC Is Everything the Left Accuses Fox News of Being: The Byers criticism of MSNBC was interesting and significant because it exists at all, but he´s still praising them with faint damn. He goes out of his way to drag Fox down to their level over and over again; he´s willing to concede that MSNBC might be as bad as Fox, when to any objective observer, there is simply no comparison. MSNBC is a gutter-dwelling performance-art interpretation of a shrieking-loon far left website, not a news channel with a high percentage of left-leaning opinion.
Environmental Protection Agency employees received light punishments for “employee integrity” violations and avoided prosecution when crimes allegedly occurred, according to the agency’s inspector general. The IG revealed a list of employee integrity violations that included assault, illegal possession of a weapon, and efforts to solicit improper personal payments from agency contractors, among other violations. Many received light punishments for the offenses, including ethics counseling, short leaves of absence, and informal discussions with supervisors. One employee was sentenced to 18 months of probation for attempting to carry a knife, stashed in one of his shoes, onto a plane. Despite the criminal prosecution, the
The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is spending an additional $55 million to “bolster” the healthcare workforce, as Obamacare contributes to shortages in the industry. HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius announced last week that her agency will provide over 270 grants “from diversity to dentistry” to address worker shortages in the healthcare industry. The funding includes $45.4 million to support the nursing workforce, $5.2 million of which will go towards “improving nursing diversity.” The grants also provide $2.4 million for training of doctoral-level psychologists to “address the behavioral health needs of vulnerable and underserved populations,” and $3 million to support
On his way to the podium at the memorial ceremony for former South African president Nelson Mandela, President Obama walked down the line of dignitaries, greeting other leaders there to pay their respects. Among the hands shaken: that of Cuban leader Raul Castro. Obama neither made a special effort to shake Castro’s hand nor to avoid him. A snub might have been awkward: In his speech, Obama praised Mandela’s “greatest gift” as “his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by
The Obama State Department has finally released a second round of photos revealing the harrowing devastation wrought by a terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012. The new photographs depict rampant damage to the consulate. They show charred walls, smoldering fires, Arabic graffiti defacing exterior walls, and scattered debris throughout. The extent of the damage would lead any reasonably serious person to conclude that this was a cold, calculated attack, carefully coordinated to mark the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001. Unfortunately for the American people, the Obama-Clinton-Rice cabal that led to the Benghazi cover-up was
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
A “presidential selfie” featuring President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service began making the rounds this morning, but it’s the person not included in the frame who caught everyone’s attention: As anyone with two eyes and a Twitter account has noticed, Michelle Obama does not appear amused. Of course, though a picture says a thousand words, not all of those words are necessarily true. FLOTUS might not have even known the photo was taking place. Or she could disapprove of funeral selfies. Either way.
Just how much do many Hollywood liberals hate conservatives? In an interview with Playboy, Ben Affleck said, "When I watch a guy [on film] I know is a big Republican, part of me thinks, I probably wouldn’t like this person if I met him": PLAYBOY: You developed a political profile campaigning for presidential candidates Al Gore, John Kerry and Barack Obama. How did that come about? AFFLECK: I grew up in a house with a mother who was a teacher and a Freedom Rider—very left-wing Democrats living in a heterogeneous working-class neighborhood. I picked up a lot of those values there, and I
MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry opened her program over the weekend with a commentary about the Affordable Care Act’s colloquial moniker: “Obamacare.” She said that the word was originally created as a “derogatory term,” designed by white men as a way to delegitimize President Barack Obama and his achievement. However, she said that the term will soon be synonymous with all of Obama’s accomplishments and she urged her audience to use the term with pride. “I want to talk today about a controversial word. It’s a word that has been with us for years, and like it or not, it’s indelibly
Barack Obama has arrived in South Africa to lead the American delegation at a memorial service for former South African President Nelson Mandela in Johannesburg. But his party is reportedly stuck in traffic and he is said to have arrived late at the stadium for the ceremony. [Snip] But Mr Clinton, Mr Carter and his wife Rosalynn have all traveled separately to the event. According to reports, Mr Obama and his delegation are stuck in a lines of traffic caused by tens of thousands of people making their way to the event. Mr Obama is among the foreign leaders who
