The coming collapse
of the abortion lobby

Fox News, by Dr. Charmaine Yoest

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 1/26/2013 6:08:40 AM

Forty years after Roe v. Wade, a powerful shift is taking place within Big Abortion. What abortion advocates could not win through choice, they intend to impose through coercion. Even Time magazine recently acknowledged on their cover that, for those so inclined to celebrate Roe’s anniversary, the rejoicing over abortion on demand should be tinged with concern. On January 14th Time asked “What Choice?” and then answered their own question: “40 years ago, abortion rights activists won an epic victory with Roe v. Wade,” the cover noted and then concluded: “They’ve been losing ever since.”

A wonderful article. Any news that our nation is turning back to God is like a drink of cool water in a desert land.

You know there is something really wrong or sick about a society that defends the right to have a baby killed.

55,000,000 American kids have been aborted.
One of them might have cured the disease that will kill you someday.

What is amazing is how tone deaf the Dems are. This can be seen in their latest convention where abortion was one of the primary platforms that they put forth. They cannot imagine how appalling it is for many Americans to put the killing of a baby in the womb as the most important reason for supporting a party. I think that if the Repubs ever quite listening to the stupid non-social/moral issues members of their party and came strongly and rationally against abortion as Reagen did we would win on the issue. We do not even have to run on an overturn of Roe v Wade. Simple issues like parental consent, waiting periods for abortions and alternatives presented to those seeking abortions would win the day since most Americans are for such things.

The problem is most establishment republicans are so afraid of the issue that they do not speak out as they should so it is left to the nuts Aiken to do so, and we see where that has gotten us.

There is no question that we were a more moral nation before the SCOTUS up and declared a right that nobody had sued for. One problem we face is rooting out all the hidden sources of funding for Planned Parenthood. We were avid supporters of Susan G Komen March for Life, for example, until we learned that hidden deep in their agenda was money donation to Planned Parenthood. Talk about a contradiction! A March for Life donating to a death dealing ooutfit like PP! The State of Texas, among others is in the process of withdrawing any funding to PP.

Let´s talk "cold-blooded murder", shall we?

Abortion has been responsible for 55,000,000 deaths in this country over the last 4 decades. People killed those little ones not guns. They were all "Pro-Choice" or "Pro-Death" advocates.

We don´t need more "Gun Control", we need "Abortion Control"!

Wake up America!

Yet please note that this is one issue that apparently helped Obama win & the Dems win the Senate. Recall how their campaigns proclaimed that any Republican or Conservative would deny all women their ´right´ to ´reproductive freedom.´

Amazing that the Dems find the right to an abortion in the Constitution and anything short of free abortion on demand is a limit to that right. Yet they want to ban the right to bear arms, which actually is in the Constitution...you know, for the children...

Thanks for posting this ray of hope for this weary pro-life warrior to read!
I wonder if the libs will regret their "choice" when social security collapses under the weight of the baby boomers with a significantly thinned out generation to follow?
The pro-life debate of the future will be whether Obamacare will be allowed to withhold medical care to let the broken down old people die off, which will save taxpayers money.

What all those abortion advocates refuse to acknowledge is that we have come a long way down the road. When this decision was handed down, it was understand there would never be taxpayer funding for abortion. Now most abortions are funded by taxpayers in one way or another.

Next up on that slippery slope, the option of having an abortion will become the duty to have an abortion with the government deciding who will be undergoing the procedure.

Abortion is evil. And people who promote it should be called out at every turn.

Re #14...There are numerous felony laws on the books, state and federal, prohibiting aggravated assault, burglary, motor vehicle theft, forgery, arson, murder etc. Yet these crimes are still committed on a daily basis. Therefore, should society simply disregard these laws?

Here is how you win on the issue at federal level - stop making it a federal issue. Federal government has NO reason to be discussing, legislating and funding abortion. Republicans should simply tell libs you are right it is none of the federal governments business what you do with your body therefor we are not going to do anything about it including funding it. Say it is a state and local issue where individuals have more say and pull with their law maker. Same goes with gays!

The article uses an apt analogy of the abortion lobby and the Soviet bloc: the latter eventually collapsed under the shaky foundation of its own lies and the indefensibility of its basic arguments in application.

But if we are to the outcomes post-Soviet collapse and the pending collapse of the abortion lobby, we must consider where pro-abortionists will migrate to. Communists didn´t go away. They eventually scuttled over to the environmental/AGW cabal to push a statist, anti-capitalist agenda. Likewise, pro-abortionists will re-locate to kindred spirits in coercive, statist entities like CAP, American Bridge, etc. to continue their agenda under a different guise, (i.e. health care).

"And with all deceivableness of un-righteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness."
2 Thess.2:10-12 The only way that God will remove the delusion is America acknowledges its Sin and repents. Do you really think that is going to happen? If anyone cannot see the judgment that we are under these days they are those that have believed the lies we have been promoting for decades.

If Planned Parenthood is really so necessary to women because they provide primary care to these women, and since Planned Parenthood claims this is their primary reason for existence, they should just stop performing abortions. Plain and simple.

Of course we know they are liars beyond belief. Their president is Cecile Richards, daughter of Ma Richards of Texas fame. Perhaps she couldn´t continue to be paid $400K per year without the profit they derive from federal government funded 333,000 abortions per year.

More mandatory ultrasound laws. Let the women see for themselves on the scopes and then make an informed choice whether to believe their own eyes or the Leftist lies about it not being murder.
And let´s not allow the Left to conflate abortion or the day after pill with ´´family planning.´´ The Left loves to play with the language in order to bamboozle, BUT, family planning is taking preconception steps, not post conception action.

#30, such ultrasound laws might save a few lives, and I welcome that, but it won´t really make much of a dent. You would be forcing a medical person to force someone to look at something, which their heart will not be into doing when the person is resistant. Nowadays, EVERY woman except maybe a young teen knows EXACTLY what the baby looks like at what stage and she can likely feel it moving around even at 3 months. Cold blooded freaks that have abortions will just say, yep, I saw it, now go ahead with the procedure.

Turning abortion into a tax paid high speed industry was as harmful and sending our kids to die is some damn remote desert we´ll never visit. Desolate. Killing thousands of babies on an assembly line.
Abortion welfare is horrifying. Kids abandoning caution because of abortion welfare. Tax payers ready to cover your mistakes. What a mess. Socialism, the State, communism, in any form does not work.

I am respectful of those who couch their pro-life arguments in religious terms. I sometimes do, as well.
However, I have found that citing science (blood typing, DNA, ultra sound) is more effective with many people, including religious people, who don´t like to acknowledge the moral aspects of their actions or political positions. A few people have hesitated - and some may have had occasion to alter their view - when confronted with "science" rather than faith.

Or go to Lifesite News and read about the unsanitary and septic conditions of those clinics in operation today. I bet you wouldn´t want to clip your toenails in places like that.

One-sixth of the USA has been murdered in vitro. Potential tax payers and heaven knows we need more tax payers and social security payers. It amazes me that the money mongrels of the dem party, who search for everyone elses money, don´t see their folly by endorsing, since 1973, aborting potential tax payers. Now, my example is horrid. I in no way support abortion. It sickens me to think 55 million innocent lives have been snuffed out. Now those of you Lucianne fans born after Jan, 1973. You do realize that your mother could have snuffed your life out, legally? You were on the do or don´t ledge of being exterminated because...now in the case of rape or incest...both are punishable crimes. I don´t know if there have been many prosecutions for the rape or family molestations. It´s all been a word game with pro aborts. Refine this. refine that so that we eventually lose the meaning of abortion. I fervently pray that I see the end of abortion. The haters have to lose. Repulsive haters.

I am no fan of abortion and would never have one. But I think the biggest problem with the issue is that it never stayed the way it was originally intended...i.e. "making it legal, safe and RARE" and only allowed in the first trimester (unless the life of the woman is in danger). Instead, the left pushed it almost into a religion. They turned it into a form of birth control and pushed it not only past the 2nd trimester but all the way to "partial birth" abortion with some even advocating "post birth abortion", like P. Singer. While I feel all potential for life is a gift from God, I can accept that people´s beliefs differ. So, if abortion is going to be legal, then we should limit it to the first trimester before it´s fully developed. But it should be state regulated and education required to discourage it. We can make it rare without outlawing it outright. We just need to discredit the left´s pro-murder agenda.

#38 In my case, I had no knowledge of, or opinion about abortion until the day in the early 80s when I saw the film "Silent Scream" on public television. When I saw the ultrasound of that little baby moving around in the womb to avoid the instrument that was invading its space, and then the open mouth...in that moment I became a pro-life advocate.
But over the years as Bible verses have popped up that speak so powerfully on the subject, it is difficult to stay with science alone.

Time for "prenatal emancipation". Take care of mom for nine months; then give baby to a couple who´ll love and appreciate it. The recent flap with Putin over Russian adoption - not to mention the cost of adoption these days - should remind us how precious all children are.

I´m as pro-life as anyone but I have to say: the Dems made abortion one of the centerpieces...and they won the Presidency during a very stagnant economy.

So I´m forced to conclude that the strategy of picking off a few groups--dominating blacks, Hispanics, unmarried women, gays, muslims (about 2% of the vote but helpful when you only won by 3-4%) was helped by their pro-abortion strategy. It kept young unmarrieds on the plantation, got millions of Hollywood money flowing in (which they wouldn´t have gotten with a pro-life platform)...meanwhile pro-lifers sat on their hands because mittens or williard or "the Mormon" wasn´t Christian or conservative enough.

So this time around, it worked for the Dems.

When I see that there have been at least 55,000,000 abortions that means that 27,500,000+ women have been denied their reproductive rights because they have been denied their right to trial by jury before getting a death sentence.

Men should also beware as 27,500,000 men were also denied their right to trial by jury before getting a death sentence.

How many who push for abortion want to do away with the death penalty for murderers?

"Safe, legal and rare." Riiigghhhttt.
Let´s cut to the chase folks: abortion is big money. BIG money. It´s not about helping women or helping children or helping society or any of that other clap trap. It´s big money. They prey upon people (men included) at one of the toughest times of their lives. Think of it as impulse buying at its worst, only there´s not returning your purchase if you are unhappy with it.

When it comes to innovations in language, give me a Puritan. Not a regressive, arch-conservative type, whose pleasures might be in the way things allegedly once were and forever should be, but a linguistically fun-loving fellow with buckled shoes and a closet full of black. Poking around in Perry Miller’s classic anthology, The American Puritans, one might come upon many a tasty morsel of linguistic innovation. To take just one example, in the Massachusetts Bay Colony one Nathaniel Ward (1578-1652), minister of Ipswich, turned to the rather un-Puritanical subject of women’s fashions. When he did so he found new language

Harry Reid isn’t on Nevada’s ballot this year, but he may as well be. The shrewd Senate majority leader is putting the strength of his formidable political machine behind a Democratic candidate for lieutenant governor whose fate could have major implications for Reid’s own three-decade congressional career. The race is rapidly becoming a proxy war between Reid and popular Republican Gov. Brian Sandoval, who is viewed by both parties as the toughest potential challenger to Reid in 2016. If a Democrat were to win the lieutenant governor’s race, it’s widely believed that Sandoval wouldn’t challenge Reid, since it would mean

Individuals in Mexican military uniforms drew their guns on a U.S. border agent earlier this year after having crossed the southwestern border into Arizona, a U.S. senator claimed, raising concerns once again that Mexican officials are illegally crossing into the U.S. and, worse, potentially aiding the drug cartels. The incident described by Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., would appear to be one of dozens over the past decade where Mexican military and law enforcement officers have crossed into U.S. territory. Most are presumed to be accidental, but they also raise the possibility that Mexican military members -- or individuals posing as them

Court ruling in land dispute

WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court´s ruling in an obscure Wyoming land dispute Monday could result in the loss of thousands of miles of bicycle trails or cost the government millions of dollars in compensation. The justices ruled 8-1 that government easements used for railroad beds over public and private land in the West expired once the railroads went out of business, and the land must revert to its owners. Chief Justice John Roberts, writing for the majority, said the case was decided based on an 1875 act of Congress and a 1942 Supreme Court decision involving the Great Northern Railway Co.

Some Democrats hope to minimize the importance of Obamacare as a political issue by focusing on other topics in this November´s midterm elections. Some hope to win by promising to fix the flawed national health care plan they passed in 2010. And others hope to turn the issue on Republicans by appealing to voters who have been helped by the law. The problem is, none of that will work. The importance of Obamacare as an issue in November 2014 cannot be controlled by either political party. It will be determined by just one thing, and that is the performance of Obamacare

The news that CBS News investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson is leaving the network does not come as any great surprise to those who have followed her career. Last year, at a time when we learned that the Obama Justice Department was spying on Fox News’ James Rosen as well as a group of reporters at the Associated Press, Attkisson reported that her computer had been hacked. But, as Dylan Byers wrote in Politico, Attkisson had an even bigger problem: most of her colleagues at CBS didn’t like the fact that she had spent the last few years reporting aggressively about

Senate Democrats’ pointless
all-night global warming talkathon

Viewers tuning in to C-SPAN 2 on Monday night and going into the wee hours of Tuesday morning might have thought they had stumbled into a sci-fi channel. The apocalyptic language from the Senate Democrats’ all-night chat about global warming was the stuff familiar to fans of B-movies and science fiction. Two dozen Democrats signed up to keep the Senate lights on and the cameras rolling through the night — dramatically increasing the Senate’s usual titanic carbon footprint — to rally support for legislation to tax carbon dioxide. The famous Sen. Beauregard Claghorn would have been impressed. The Senate Climate Action Task

Hillary Clinton has her own private NSA. American Bridge PAC spent last week spying on the private conversations of attendees at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). The group also plans to spy on the private lives of GOP delegates to the 2016 Republican National Convention wherever the convention is located, but Politico reports ABPAC has issued the following threat if the GOP selects Las Vegas as its host city. American Bridge has set up this website at “SinCityGOP” and announces (bold print supplied): While the Republican Party debates where to hold the Republican National Convention in 2016, American Bridge is preparing our

With the incorporation of Crimea into Russia by force of arms about to become a fait accompli next week, speculation is increasingly turning to the longer-term implications of Vladimir Putin’s audacious land grab. Historical parallels like Hitler’s Sudetenland thrust or the Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia in 1968 are useful up to a point but ultimately irrelevant. There is however, a historical precedent of uncanny similarity and predictive power that has remained largely unmentioned in the ocean of ink already spilled on the Ukrainian crisis. It’s also a precedent that is about to prove philosopher George Santayana right when he said

The Pentagon may be spending hundreds of thousands of dollars studying Vladimir Putin’s body language in order to “better predict [his] actions,” but Putin does not need a study to read President Obama’s body language. While more Russian forces were pouring into Crimea this past weekend, and Russian legislators announced their readiness to annex the Ukrainian province, where was our commander in chief? Monitoring events in the Situation Room? Meeting with the Joint Chiefs at the Pentagon? Holding an emergency meeting of NATO leaders? Nope.

President Obama talks, talks, talks about jobs. The first 20 minutes of his State of the Union address in January was all about jobs. Immigration reform would “create jobs for everybody,” he said. His energy policy “is creating jobs.” Obama said he’s assigned Vice President Biden to make sure training programs match workers with “good jobs that need to be filled right now.” Last week he described his new budget as “a road map for creating jobs.” Yet for all the talk, his record on jobs is pathetic. It raises this question: Does the president have a clue about what

The 300,000-member union that was the first to endorse then-Senator Barack Obama has released a devastating Obamacare report that says Obama´s controversial healthcare program will slash worker wages by up to $5 an hour, reduce worker hours, and exacerbate income inequality. The report by Unite Here--a North American labor union that represents workers in the hotel, gaming, food service, manufacturing, textile, distribution, laundry, and airport industries--is titled: "The Irony of ObamaCare: Making Inequality Worse." "Ironically, the Administration´s own signature healthcare victory poses one of the most immediate challenges to redressing inequality," states the 12-page report. "We take seriously the promise

CBS News investigative correspondent Sharyl Attkisson has reached an agreement to resign from CBS News ahead of contract, bringing an end to months of hard-fought negotiations, sources familiar with her departure told POLITICO on Monday. Attkisson, who has been with CBS News for two decades, had grown frustrated with what she saw as the network´s liberal bias, an outsized influence by the network´s corporate partners and a lack of dedication to investigative reporting, several sources said. She increasingly felt like her work was no longer supported and that it was a struggle to get her reporting on air.

During House Minority Nancy Pelosi´s address at the 2014 California Democrats State Convention on Saturday in Los Angeles, she told a story about an unnamed House Republican telling her the GOP does not care about hungry children in America. Pelosi claimed the unnamed "friend" called the poor and hungry "invisible". Pelosi used that same exact same rhetoric in early February at her weekly press briefing only then instead of friend it was the rock band U2 that gave her the "invisible" line...

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) wowed the beltway elite and even Democrats during Saturday´s annual Gridiron event, showing why the Ivy Leaguer has confounded and been vilified by many with whom he shares the same intellectual pedigree. The annual D.C. roast is hosted by the exclusive Gridiron Club, which is composed of D.C.´s mainstream and "elite" journalists. Cruz has degrees from Princeton and Harvard, which those in the permanent political class covet, and he can do their social rituals better than they can. Yet Cruz refuses to be co-opted by them politically, instead choosing to be a staunch conservative who represents

A bit later, Mika Brzezinski piled on, calling Palin a "multi-million dollar moron." When Joe Scarborough challenged her, saying "you don´t think that, right?", Mika didn´t retract her slur, saying only that Palin is "savvy in selling a message that makes a lot of money." View the

Beyoncé and Jennifer Garner are among the prominent women taking a stand against the term "bossy" and what it stands for in regards to female empowerment. "Being labeled something matters," Garner, 34, says in a promotional video for the campaign. The effort against discouraging girls from leadership is a joint push from the Girl Scouts of America and the Lifetime network. The PSA also includes participation from Jane Lynch, Condoleezza Rice, Diane von Furstenberg, Secretary of Education Arne Duncan and "Lean In" author Sheryl Sandberg. "Girls are less interested in leadership than boys," Beyoncé says, while Lynch adds, "and that´s

Virgin CEO Richard Branson said that those who are skeptical of man-made global warming should “get out of our way,” joining the ranks of CEOs lashing out against those opposed to business investments in “sustainability.” Branson made his remarks in the wake of Apple CEO Tim Cook’s telling global warming skeptics to “get out of this stock” if they did not agree with the company’s green investment strategy. Cook made his comments after being confronted by a free-market activist who pressed him on putting the environment ahead of profitable investments. “If you want me to do things only for [return on investment] reasons,

You have probably seen all of the ridiculous speculating about the GOP nomination in 2016. This is still speculating, but my sincere hope is you don’t think it’s ridiculous too. Kentucky Senator Rand Paul is laying the foundation for his presidential bid in concrete and steel. First, forget about Jeb Bush unless you want to hand Hillary eight years in the White House. The latest Rasmussen poll shows her leading Jeb in a general election 47 percent to 33. His name is Bush and to the general public the specifics of how smart he is doesn’t matter one iota. Then there’s Ted Cruz,

The father of Sandy Hook Elementary School shooter Adam Lanza has spoken publicly for the first time to make the startling claim that he wishes his son had never been born. Giving a series of interviews to The New Yorker magazine, Peter Lanza dubbed his son Adam ´evil´ for killing 20 children and six staff at the Connecticut school just before Christmas in 2012. Explaining that his son spent his entire life troubled by mental illness, Lanza, a vice president for GE Energy Financial Services said that in his opinion he thought his youngest boy was an undiagnosed schizophrenic.

Writing a check on an account with an iffy balance, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell told The New York Times that he thinks the Republican establishment is "going to crush [our opponents] everywhere." It took zero-point-zero seconds for that quote to become precisely the sort of rallying point that Republican incumbents would probably rather their opponents not have. The Tea Party-versus-establishment war has rarely been articulated as plainly as in McConnell´s comments. Although it appears that McConnell was probably speaking within the fairly narrow frame of candidates challenging incumbent Republican senators. Last week, McConnell´s second-in-command on the Hill, Texas Sen.
