What does China’s impending weapons dominance have to do with abortion?

From Investors Business Daily, January 29:

Arms Buildup: A senior weapons developer tells Congress that Beijing’s massive defense buildup, emphasizing precision-guided and other advanced weapons, has placed the U.S. and its shrinking military at serious risk.

‘I am very concerned about the increasing risk of loss of U.S. military technological superiority,” Frank Kendall, deputy undersecretary for acquisition, said Wednesday. “We’re at risk, and the situation is getting worse.” He was testifying before the House Armed Services Committee at a hearing on the subject of defense and technological change.

The Chinese were paying attention to U.S. military dominance in the early 1990s after we won the arms race and the Cold War, he said. And they watched and analyzed our ability to project overwhelming power in Desert Storm after Iraq invaded Kuwait. “No one observed more carefully the dominance we demonstrated in 1991 than the Chinese,” Kendall observed.

China quickly went to work on its own power projection capabilities and what is called asymmetrical warfare…. Kendall says he became “alarmed as soon as I started seeing technical intelligence reports on China’s modernization programs.

What does this have to do with abortion?

The launch of China’s infamous one-child policy in 1979 also launched a gender imbalance, with a preference for boys achieved mostly through abortion.

This has resulted in 34 million more males than females in China by 2011. Two charts from The Mirror, November 11, 2014, explain it all:

Gender-imbalance-at-birth-china

china's-gender-imbalance-problem

I’m certainly not the first to envision a doomsday scenario where a Chinese army of “choice” takes us over. From the Washington Post, 2006:

Foreign Policy magazine has come up with a new worry to chew your nails over – hordes of hormone-addled, sexually frustrated Asian men.

This nightmare scenario appears in an article with a wonderful title – “The Geopolitics of Sexual Frustration.” But the scary part starts in the subtitle: “Asia has too many boys. They can’t find wives, but they just might find extreme nationalism instead.”

The problem began 20 years ago, when ultrasound technology gave Asian women a cheap way to determine the sex of their unborn babies, writes Martin Walker, editor of United Press International. In China and other Asian nations, millions of women chose to abort female fetuses so they could instead give birth to boys. Consequently, those countries will soon have millions more men than women.

The result, says Walker, will be “mass sexual frustration.” By 2020, he writes, China alone could have “40 million frustrated bachelors.”…

Valerie Hudson, a Brigham Young University scholar… agrees: “In 2020, it may seem to China that it would be worth it to have a very bloody battle in which a lot of their young men could die in some glorious cause.”

2020 – that’s now five years away. The timing of China’s impending weapons dominance would appear… odd.

I have thought for some time abortion will play into the end times.

Happy Friday afternoon.

Pro-life blog buzz 1-30-15

pro-lifeby Susie Allen, host of the blog, Pro-Life in TN, and Kelli

  • Live Action News reports on a perfect example of twisted pro-abortion logic from The Abortion Resource Handbook, in which author K Kaufmann tells teens that keeping their pregnancy and abortion a secret is positive and shows signs of maturity. (That’s interesting – I always thought hiding things from people was more a sign of an immature person with an inability to deal with the consequences of one’s own actions):

The photo above, via Cosmopolitan on January 23, shows progress on building an 8,000 sq. ft Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in New Orleans has obviously stalled.

Abortion proponents in uproar over pro-life handcuff mailer

pro-life-action-league

The abortion lobby has taken note of Pro-Life Action League’s mailer project and doesn’t like it.

On January 22, the 42nd anniversary of the Supreme Court’s Roe v Wade decision, the League sent a mailer to every abortion clinic in the U.S.

Inside was a pair of plastic handcuffs, a photo of Oklahoma City abortionist Naresh Patel being arrested last month, and a note asking, “Could you be next?”

Pro-life vid of the day: Media ignore March For Life

by Hans Johnson

Once again, the mainstream media couldn’t be bothered with doing much or any coverage of the March For Life on January 22. Some 200,000 people (a very conservative estimate, as other sources list the crowds at more than 600,000) from all around the nation took the time and effort to attend, but of the three major tv networks only CBS mentioned it – for fifteen seconds! That’s one second for every 13,000 people.

There is certainly no lack of reporting for much smaller protests. But the influence of the MSM is on a steady decline. There are now many outlets to find the truth, such as from Katie Yoder at the Media Research Center:

Liberals drool over idea that politicians may become pro-choice

15-tim-ryanby Kelli

Ryan identifies as Catholic and previously described himself as pro-life. He has supported several pieces of anti-abortion legislation during his time in Congress — including restrictions on minors seeking abortions, a ban on embryonic stem cell research, and a ban on so-called “partial birth” abortions.

But, according to his new op-ed, Ryan has since “come to believe that we must trust women and families — not politicians — to make the best decision for their lives.”

The congressman says he has listened to women across the country talk about their personal experiences with abortion. Some told him they became pregnant from abusive relationships or from sexual assaults. Others said they couldn’t afford to have another child.

Ryan heard from women who developed serious health issues during their pregnancies, and from underage girls are were afraid their parents would kick them out for getting pregnant.

“These women gave me a better understanding of how complex and difficult certain situations can become. And while there are people of good conscience on both sides of this argument, one thing has become abundantly clear to me: the heavy hand of government must not make this decision for women and families,” Ryan writes. “No federal or state law banning abortion can honestly and fairly take into account the various circumstances that make each decision unique.”…

Ryan’s change of heart may signal a potential path forward for reproductive rights supporters eager to shift the political landscape around abortion, which has remained largely unchanged for the past several decades.

Planned Parenthood down to 666 clinics

666_logo

Can you say, “Satan”?

Wow, headlines like that only come along once a year.

In this case there was another headline almost as good: “Planned Parenthood now has fewer abortion clinics than the year Roe was decided.”

And a third headline, not so good: “Planned Parenthood now operates over 45% of all U.S. abortion clinics.”

American Life League has just issued its “2014 report on Planned Parenthood facilities in the United States,” with some interesting finds:

NRLC ups ante and pushes new “Dismemberment Abortion Ban” of 12-wk-old babies

EXECUTION

You may have heard of the barbaric medieval practice of drawing and quartering, as described by historian William Harrison in 1557:

The greatest and most grievous punishment used in England for such as offend against the State is drawing from the prison to the place of execution upon an hurdle or sled, where they are hanged till they be half dead, and then taken down, and quartered alive; after that, their members and bowels are cut from their bodies, and thrown into a fire, provided near hand and within their own sight, even for the same purpose.

This is how Scottish leader William Wallace (played by Mel Gibson in Braveheart) was put to death.

And it pretty much describes a Dilatation and Evacuation abortion, wherein the abortionist reaches into the uterus blindly with forceps and starts grabbing and twisting off body parts of a living baby. Click to enlarge…

Tomlin

Well, since my earlier days, that’s a long time ago, and, my God, people barely talked about it. I mean, enlightened people might, I won’t even lay that on them.

I would say the people who were more conscious or more aware might discuss it or make that choice or whatever, but, most people, it was a secret… and the subject was taboo.

I’m talking about back in the 60s and 70s, in general society, although, that’s not really the absolute thrust of this movie. It’s more about our relationships.

So, yes, I think it’s much more open, as everything is.

~ Actress Lily Tomlin comparing the public discussion of abortion back in her day versus now and as it relates to the pro-abortion film “Grandma,”, as quoted by Slate, January 29
