I Couldn’t Turn My
Abortion Into Art

New York Times, by Lisa Selin Davis

Original Article

Posted By:garnet, 7/3/2014 10:03:36 AM

I had just turned 22 and I had the self-esteem of a squashed toad. This may explain why I was having an affair with a married 36-year-old sound mixer whom I’d met on a film shoot a couple of months earlier. I’d had only one serious boyfriend by this time and recently had been asked for the first time, “Can I buy you a drink?” by a man. (He was an actor in a film I’d worked on the summer before; he asked everybody that question, but still it felt like progress.) Somehow, by that tender age, I had convinced myself

It was a sad read, for me; the saddest part being, she suffered much, but learned little.

You woke up crying because in your heart you knew what you had done was horribly wrong. You say now you didn´t want that baby--but I´ll bet that baby wanted you.

It is all about her, no thought for the life she chose to destroy. Very sad and sickening. A view into the life of an naïve narcissist who wants her daughters to grow to be just like her.

Until the last few sentences, I was sure this woman would have realized that abortion is the deliberate killing of a tiny human being and that women harm themselves, too, when they have an abortion. Alas, in typical liberal feminist fashion, she found it impossible to divest herself of her liberal Sandra Fluke feminism.

I want my daughters to have the option of safe and legal abortion, of course. I just don’t want them to have to use it.

That is a non-sequitur: If you don´t want them to have abortions, tell them it´s wrong to get pregnant to begin with. If you truly don´t want your daughters to have abortions, you tell them that abortion is morally wrong, not that it´s a "last resort."

This woman has had her fifteen minutes of semi-fame by writing this opinion, which I am certain she believed was her duty, that she is still a morally upstanding person, but all she did was to cement into place that abortion is a "woman´s right" to kill babies.

Where is the baby´s right to be born? It was sucked out of her by the sterile, polished people in black robes who sit on the Supreme Court of the United States.

Before the "coat-hanger, back-alley" people start protesting, there is no middle ground here: A fetus is either a living baby or it isn´t. If it isn´t, why are some people given longer prison sentences for killing a pregnant woman than a non-pregnant one? Because the fetus is not a baby?

(I know I shouldn´t have begun this rant, but I couldn´t let Ms. Davis get away with having her baby and killing it, too.)

My concern about abortion is for the child that is being destroyed as if it didn´t matter. But if more women would admit how awful this is, and tell the true story of the abortion industry (which is what propels this constant screaming for ´choice´)and what it does to women, it would be a step in the right direction.

Definitely fits the profile of an Obama supporter. This is what happens when parents send their children forth without a spiritual foundation. She never did say whether her baby´s father paid up when he returned.

What a contrast in the comments on the NY Times site and here. The NY Times commenters really live in an intellectual vacuum, not to mention the spiritual vacuum and nihilism. What this piece really says is that there should always be a cheap way out, but unfortunately abortion is an unpleasant experience. Who knew? Maybe the baby didn´t enjoy it either. But we should all soldier on and have sex on our own terms. And aren´t those conservatives a bunch of meanies the way they refuse to support children. Yeah, just like the pro-life cab driver who would have worked a second job and raised that child as his own.

There are thousands upon thousands of women in this country who have had this same experience, it takes courage to talk about it, even in the New York Times.

She´s right, of course: a generation which was brow beaten into being convinced it was "a right" - a hard fought-for right. So they went in there, their psyche´s dulled from the experience even before they walked in the door.

Her reaction was real, both physical and emotional pain and torment. All she encountered made her question everything. (And the woman who was having her 8th??? Too horrible to consider!)

Women of several generations who were browbeat with surly conviction by feminists - they feel "I had one, do I have the right to say no, don´t do this????" It´s a knife in the heart that never leaves.

So she says to her daughters the very true thing: do whatever you have to do to not put yourself in that situation so you´ll never have to do what I did.

We´ve lost so many generations of young ladies to the leftist sense of "right" that we forgot to talk to them about the right to be loved, treated with respect and tenderness, without exploitation, with awe towards conception. That is what should be focused on, not condemnation.

The angle of this is the imagined imminent denial of birth control the left is flogging since the Hobby Lobby decision the other day. It pulls at the heart strings and the very last line tells you what will stop this madness. Birth control! But only if it´s free for the user and paid for by others. Emotional extortion.

The comments on the Times´ site are scary. That so many people are so cavalier about what is really murder is awful.

Somebody tell the author that the movie was made about abortion--Love with the Proper Stranger. When the whole process was too sordid to go through with, she balked. Eventually, she decided to have the child, then decided to marry the father.

It´s not all lyrical "Cider House Rules."

Through waves of European revolutions, grand reform movements, the building and dismantling of history’s greatest global empire, two world wars and the establishment of one of the world’s leading welfare states, the United Kingdom has enjoyed remarkable political stability, always evolving to meet challenges but simultaneously holding to the ancient constitutional structures and traditions that have united and protected its people in an uncommonly successful multi-ethnic state. That has been good for Great Britain and good for the world. Now, the country’s future is in question, as Scotland prepares to vote Thursday on whether to secede. Polls show a closely

If past presidents are remembered for their signature achievements, Obama will be remembered for his signature lie: “If you like your health care plan blah, blah, blah.” The reader knows the rest. Although the most consequential of Obama’s lies — it got him reelected — it’s far from his only prevarication. I’ve counted 75 significant lies since his campaign for president began, but that doesn’t begin to tally the casual fibs and hyperbole he spouts seemingly every day. Here are five that illustrate just how much Obama’s presidency is built on falsehoods. 5. “My father left my family when I was 2

Democrats have a lot to worry about in the midterm elections but one of their sturdiest bulwarks against a GOP rout in the fall has been support among women. They have held significant leads over Republicans among women by a number of polling measures. But the latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News Poll has some warning signs for Democrats who are counting on women to help them weather a tough political climate. An important bellwether is the question of which party voters would prefer to control Congress, and it has long been the case that men prefer a Republican Congress and women favor

“Now let’s make two things clear,” Barack Obama told the world on Wednesday, adopting a brisk schoolmaster’s tone. First, ISIS, the self-professed “Islamic state” that has taken over large parts of Syria and Iraq, is not actually Islamic. Why would he say that? Because, as Obama explained, “No religion condones the killing of innocents.”Since Obama is neither a Muslim nor a scholar, that judgement is above his pay grade, as he would put it. As Bernard Lewis, a great authority on Islam, puts it: “It is surely presumptuous for those who are not Muslims to say what is orthodox and

After winning the presidency, Andrew Jackson sent a message to Congress suggesting that the office be extended to six years but limited to one term. His message caused wild speculation that the first “people´s president” would not seek a second term. That led to a dramatic Jackson proclamation, in a letter to Pennsylvania Democrats, that the “call of the people” trumped his “personal inclination” and he could “not refuse to serve them.” The truth is, he was never not going to run. Jackson may have been the first Democrat to be elected as president. But his secretary of State and eventual vice president,

There’s plenty of evidence to support Chuck Todd’s conclusion, and not just on foreign policy, either.

When President Obama sits down with congressional leaders this week to talk about fighting the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria — “ISIS” — they’ll probably not agree on anything, not even the proper name of the terrorist organization that now controls about one-third of Iraq and a larger part of Syria. The president insists on calling it “ISIL”, for “Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.” The “Levant” — an archaic term — refers to the area off the Eastern Mediterranean Sea stretching from what is now Anatolia in Turkey, through Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Israel and Egypt. By insisting on

Jim Webb could be Hillary Clinton´s worst nightmare. The former one-term Virginia senator and Vietnam War veteran is making sounds about running for president as a Democrat. He was in Iowa last month; a New Hampshire trip may be in the offing, and he´s giving a major speech at the National Press Club in two weeks. He seems an improbable candidate. He has taken illiberal positions, was President Ronald Reagan´s Navy secretary, has few relationships within the Democratic Party, and has no serious fundraising network. What he does possess is a long-held and forceful opposition to U.S. interventions in Iraq and Libya,

   

 



 
Facing Dem attacks, could new GOP
strategy end birth control wars?
Washington Examiner, by Byron York    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 9/8/2014 8:59:40 AM     Post Reply
Remember the 2012 Republican presidential debate in which ABC´s George Stephanopoulos, seemingly out of nowhere, pressed Mitt Romney repeatedly for his views on contraception? After a contentious back-and-forth, a frustrated Romney declared, "Contraception, it´s working just fine, just leave it alone." In the 2014 midterms, Democratic candidates have taken up where Stephanopoulos left off, and they´re certainly not leaving contraception alone. In some key Senate races, Democrats have even charged that Republicans would "make birth control illegal." (That´s from Colorado Democratic Sen. Mark Udall, directed at GOP opponent Rep. Cory Gardner.) But now, instead of Romney´s

Civil rights leaders and community activists cheered when Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. announced on Thursday that the Justice Department would be investigating the Ferguson Police Department for possible civil rights violations—a move prompted by the August 9 shooting death of an African-American teen at the hands of one of the St. Louis suburb’s white police officers. The reaction is understandable. The Justice Department’s civil rights division—which is investigating whether Ferguson’s police force engaged in a pattern and practice of abuses—has for decades been instrumental in pursuing justice in matters and places where local action would have been unlikely.

This summer has seen gruesome beheadings, a passenger plane shot out of the sky, civil war, genocide, an Ebola outbreak and more.

Labor Day This was an educational summer. We learned this summer that when terrorists kill Jews, that’s legitimate anger and frustration. When Jews defend themselves, that’s genocide. We learned that Europe, which Henry Ford called “that slaughterhouse of nations” or something similar, is still chock a block with anti-Semites who are wildly happy to join hands with the emerging Muslim majority in Europe to torture the Jews. We learned that the elite media, especially the New York Times, will turn on Israel and the Jews and seek to curry favor with the enemies of Jews and of America in any way they can.

Former President George W. Bush put together a 48 member coalition for the Iraq War in 2003. 40 of those members supported military operations and 37 provided some number troops. In April 2003, the list was updated to include 49 countries, though it was reduced to 48 after Costa Rica objected to its inclusion. Of the 48 states on the list, three contributed troops to the invasion force (the United Kingdom, Australia and Poland). An additional 37 countries provided some number of troops to support military operations after the invasion was complete. Despite these numbers the liberal media continues to push the lie

Voter turnout during last month´s primary races was a little too good in some counties, Arizona elections officials said Friday. Some precincts in northern Arizona tallied more ballots cast than there are registered voters, the Arizona Capitol Times reported. According to officials, errors made by poll workers and elections officials in Apache and Navajo counties led to the miscalculations. Initial reports from some precincts showed a turnout of anywhere from 200 to 400 percent. In Apache County, the Puerco West precinct reportedly had 100 votes cast, but only 23 voters are registered there. The voter turnout added up to 434

New emails provided to The Daily Caller from the nonprofit legal research firm Cause of Action show the White House thanking the Department of Labor for “flagging” a public information request for “withheld” portions of Solis’ schedule.

There’s a lot of competition for Barack Obama’s biggest lie. The man who could assure the American public with a straight face over thirty times that they could keep their doctor under his health plan, when he knew that to be completely false, is one hellluva fibber. But execrable as that serial prevarication may have been, it doesn’t hold a proverbial candle to his most recent whopper — that the Islamic State is not Islamic — not to mention its corollary, or perhaps subsidiary lie, that real religions do not indulge in murder.

Is a mutiny happening around President Obama? It appears possible that the president may not have made two of his most recent decisions with complete free will. The announcement that he would delay his immigration initiative until after the election and his formal announcement that the United States would take military action against the Islamic State could have been coerced. Maybe Democratic leaders in Congress and a few members of the Obama team have had it. Could it be that, after President Obama briefed Democrats in Congress on the immigration plan, they balked? Maybe the president was told that, if he
