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.

"Abortion still has not liberated women". Of course not, murder never liberates anyone.
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.
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) slammed Attorney General Eric Holder after an investigation by Goodlatte´s committee reported discrepancies between Holder´s congressional testimony and decision to approve a search warrant for emails from Fox News Correspondent James Rosen. "I find the lack of leadership at the Department of Justice extremely alarming," Goodlatte said in a statement on Wednesday. "The deceptive and misleading testimony of Attorney General Holder is unfortunately just the most recent example in a long list of scandals that have plagued the Department." The report released by the Judiciary Committee on Wednesday said Holder´s testimony included
WASHINGTON — Former Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. has filed his final House financial disclosure report more than six months late, a filing that sheds little light on how he will pay a $750,000 forfeiture for looting his campaign treasury. Jackson, 48, is awaiting sentencing on Aug. 14. Federal prosecutors want him behind bars for four years. His wife, Sandi Jackson, 49, a former Chicago alderman, will be sentenced the same day for a federal tax violation. The government has urged that she spend 18 months in prison. In his plea deal, Jackson agreed to pay the $750,000 forfeiture and
A new Republican poll shows Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.) in a potentially tough spot for reelection, with more than half of respondents open to reelecting a new senator next year. The survey, from GOP firm Magellan Strategies, reveals 51 percent of respondents say it´s "time to give a new person a chance" in office. Thirty-nine percent agreed that Landrieu has performed her job well enough to "deserve to be reelected." Though those numbers are bad news for Landrieu, they´re not a clear indication half of Louisiana voters will vote to oust her.
MORVEN, Ga. — Small-town police departments across the country have been gobbling up tons of equipment discarded by a downsizing military — bicycles, bed sheets, bowling pins, French horns, dog collars, even a colonoscopy machine — regardless of whether the items are needed or will ever be used. In the tiny farming community of Morven, Ga., the police chief has grabbed three boats, scuba gear, rescue rafts and a couple of dozen life preservers. The town´s deepest body of water: an ankle-deep creek. An Associated Press investigation of the Defense Department program, originally aimed at helping local law enforcement
ISLAMABAD, Pakistan- Secretary of State John Kerry met Thursday with the Pakistan´s new prime minister, Nawaz Sharif, whose election marked the first peaceful transfer of power from one civilian government to another. The Obama administration is seeking to rebalance the tumultuous relationship with the nuclear-armed Pakistan in an effort to work together on counterterrorism, to start peace talks with the Taliban as the U.S. winds down its involvement in neighboring Afghanistan, and to coordinate on other issues of strategic interest. "The common interests far exceed and far outweigh any differences," Kerry said during a joint press conference
WASHINGTON- President Obama will meet with congressional members to discuss Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act programs Thursday, the White House said. The daily schedule indicated Obama also will: -- Meet Vice President Joe Biden for lunch in the Private Dining Room.-- Meet with a group of bipartisan members of Congress to discuss key FISA programs. -- Hold a bilateral meeting with Yemeni President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi to discuss matters of mutual interest.-- Host a reception for the 50th anniversary of the Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights
Undocumented immigrants with temporary legal status soon will be allowed to pay in-state tuition rates at all Ohio public colleges as long as they meet other residency requirements. Until now, most of the state’s public two- and four-year schools have charged those students out-of-state or international rates that can be as much as three times what Ohio students pay. Today, Ohio Board of Regents Chancellor John Carey sent a letter notifying the state’s college presidents about the change, after state Attorney General Mike DeWine determined that immigrant students now may qualify for in-state tuition.
On Tuesday, conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh said the mainstream media get as much pleasure defeating conservatives as they do when they help liberals. "And I think they get as big a thrill, just as all Democrats do, of defeating conservatives as they do helping Obama," Limbaugh said. "The media has aligned with Obama to defeat Republicans, to defeat conservatives. And Obama is all about that. That makes them his best friend, and vice versa." Appearing on Fox News´ On The Record with Greta Van Susteren, Limbaugh said President Barack Obama can say whatever and "do pretty much
RESTON, Va.— Mark Stewart turns quite a few heads as he zips through the streets on his neon green ELF bike. With each pedal, his feet take turns sticking out from the bottom while a gentle motor hums in the background. What he´s driving looks like a cross between a bicycle and a car, the closest thing yet to Fred Flintstone´s footmobile, only with solar panels and a futuristic shape. It´s a "green" option for today´s commuters. Stewart, a 65-year-old family therapist and school psychologist from Cambridge, Mass., took the summer off in order to drive his new ELF
The White House said bluntly Wednesday that it considers the controversy over the Benghazi attack to be among the so-called "phony scandals" that President Obama has been complaining about in recent speeches -- even as new questions were being raised about the lack of progress in the investigation. Press Secretary Jay Carney was asked at the daily briefing about Obama´s repeated claim -- which he asserted most recently during a speech in Tennessee on Tuesday -- that Washington is getting distracted by phony scandals. Asked what the president was referring to, Carney listed the scandals
Fans of the TLC network reality show “19 Kids And Counting” will have to wait until next season to see what happens when the eldest son, his wife and their three children leave the Arkansas family nest on a cross-country trek to the nation’s capitol. But 25-year-old Josh Duggar said he’ll feel right at home as the executive director of FRC Action, the political arm of the Family Research Council. Faith and politics, he said, are the vehicles for promoting family values.Duggar, who ran his own business for six years before joining FRC,
President Obama weighed in on the state of journalism in an Amazon Kindle interview published Wednesday, noting the difficulties journalists face in the new media atmosphere and declaring that the “old times aren’t coming back.” “It used to be there were local newspapers everywhere,” Obama said. “If you wanted to be a journalist, you could really make a good living working for your hometown paper. Now, you have a few newspapers that make a profit because they are national brands, and journalists are having to scramble to piece together a living, in some cases as freelancers and without
FORNEY, Texas - George Zimmerman, the former Florida neighborhood watch leader cleared of all charges in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, was pulled over for speeding in North Texas on Sunday, CBS DFW reports. According to the station, Zimmerman was armed when officers pulled him over on Highway 80 in Forney, east of Dallas. (Snip) The officer reportedly did not recognize Zimmerman, who was driving a Honda pickup. Zimmerman told the officer he was armed and was then told to put the weapon in his glove compartment, according to the station.
Arizona Sen. John McCain was the Republican Party´s 2008 presidential nominee and he still wants the keys to the Oval Office. But he is beginning to sound more like a fan of likely 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. "She´s a rock star," he said in a newly released interview. "She has, maybe not glamour, but certainly the aura of someone widely regarded throughout the world," he added in a reference to her work as secretary of State. McCain, reportedly trying to win back his reputation as a GOP maverick, was asked by the New Republic
President Obama has been rolling up his sleeves campaigning across the country delivering a surreal stump speech message supposedly aimed at the middle class: big government works, Obamacare is manna from heaven, the wave of recent scandals are “phony” figments of the imagination, and all economic problems are the fault of the Republicans. Conveniently, he leaves out the bankruptcy of Detroit, a city run by his own party for more than half a century. His message is so stale and unconvincing, that even The New York Times and Washington Post have noticed. Both papers, usually loyal to Obama, remarked that
The former commander of special operations in Northern Africa told a closed-door briefing today that he was largely detached from events the night of the Benghazi attack as he was traveling at the time. The testimony of Col. George H. Bristol, USMC, Former Commander, Joint Special Operations Task Force-Trans Sahara, Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command Africa, had been eagerly anticipated by members of Congress. Originally, lawmakers had been told by the Defense Department that he had retired — the actual date is Aug. 1, an “administrative error” according to the Pentagon — and that they didn’t have
Gotta figure her lead would be even bigger without Joe Miller in the field here. Her nomination for the taking? Alaska should be a top tier pick up opportunity for Senate Republicans next year…but their top choice of a candidate is Sarah Palin. 36% of GOP primary voters in the state say they’d like Palin to be their standard bearer against Mark Begich to 26% for Mead Treadwell, 15% for Dan Sullivan, and 12% for Joe Miller.
Embattled Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner and an attorney in the Federal Election Commission’s general counsel’s office appear to have twice colluded to influence the record before the FEC’s vote in the case of a conservative non-profit organization, according to e-mails unearthed by the House Ways and Means Committee and obtained exclusively by National Review Online. The correspondence suggests the discrimination of conservative groups extended beyond the IRS and into the FEC, where an attorney from the agency’s enforcement division in at least one case sought and received tax information about the status of a conservative group,
Sen. John McCain — a Democrat? There was confusion Wednesday after the Arizona Republican mistakenly strolled into President Obama’s meeting with Senate Democrats at the Capitol. The room full of Democrats — who happened to be meeting in the same room where the Senate GOP usually holds their weekly policy luncheons — erupted in applause and laughter as the former Republican presidential candidate made his entrance. As McCain, 76, walked out of the Dem-filled space, reporters pressed him as to why he stepped foot in the room.
Mark Levin, who hosts one of America´s top radio talk shows and is considered by supporters to be the people´s pundit on the Constitution, is rallying his 8.5 million-strong audience to demand an historic convention of state governments to halt the "oppressive power" of the federal government. The author of two New York Times bestsellers on the threats to the Constitution, Levin hopes his latest, "The Liberty Amendments," out mid-August, will spark the state lawmakers to tap a rarely used Constitutional provision to institute measures that would brake President Obama´s use of executive orders, bar thousand-page laws and
In an interview on National Public Radio (NPR), House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said her new agenda for women will give mothers access to day care so they can “earn without carrying the burden of child care.” During the interview, aired on Weekend Edition Sunday, Pelosi spoke about her newly announced agenda, which is on her website, and is titled, “When Women Succeed, America Succeeds: An Economic Agenda for Women and Families,” a plan that includes universal pre-school and access to day care for working women, and an increase in the minimum wage.
Karl Rove and more than one hundred Republican donors sent a letter to Republican members of Congress on Tuesday, urging them to pass a comprehensive immigration reform bill that would include, among other provisions, granting "legal status" to illegal aliens who meet certain criteria. Anticipating that lawmakers will face resistance to the bill when they go home for the August recess, the letter marks the escalation of a campaign in which Republican leaders and donors are pressuring House Republicans to act on an immigration reform bill.
No matter how much you may hope for it, it seems unlikely that you´ll be using the phrase "Senator Sarah Palin" with any great regularity in 2015. A new poll indicates that the former Alaska governor is about as popular in the state as Barack Obama — which is to say, not very popular at all. But even more surprising, while the former vice presidential candidate has made Alaska a central part of her public image, the state´s residents split on the question of whether Palin is all that Alaskan. Conducted by Public Policy Polling,
In her first speech since taking over the Environmental Protection Agency, Gina McCarthy came out swinging Tuesday and promised to ramp up the aggressive climate change agenda laid out by President Obama.(snip)“Can we stop talking about environmental regulations killing jobs? Please, at least for today,” she said during remarks at Harvard Law School. “We need to cut carbon pollution to grow jobs. We need to cut carbon pollution to strengthen the economy. Let’s talk about it positively. Let’s approach this as an opportunity of a lifetime. There are too many lifetimes at stake.”
