Quote of the Day, July 23, 2009

In government health care reform debates, abortion coverage is the third rail. Should some abortion be implicitly, if not explicitly, covered? Should Congress promote the use of contraception? And if abortion were covered, would Barack Obama’s mother have had one? ~ Ben Buchwalter, as quoted by Mother Jones, July 22.

Georgetown U’s pro-abortion women’s law fellowship program

Pro-life Dem Stupak: “It would be easier to fit a camel through the eye of a needle than to pass this bill.”

The Dem din is growing louder on the topic of abortion. Some good quotes in this

Has Obama lost his cool?

It’s been awhile since I went off topic, but this one’s fun. Brett Breitbart made an intriguing comment last night on Hannity. He said Obama began losing his cool cat appeal with the American people after his latest teleprompter malfunction and goofy reaction. Strike 1… Strikes 2 and 3 followed in quick succession when Obama […]

Ronan tells more about the patients and their reactions to the abortions.

Some cry and shake. One cheekily chatted up the abortion staff and offered them discounts at her jewelry store. Ronan finds the distressed ones much easier to work with, though she stresses that she is not judging the matter-of-fact ones. She says that “Pain breaks down barriers” and makes it easier to do her hand-holding and hair-stroking.

She doesn’t touch on any incongruity between the banality of abortion as a routine medical procedure and the tiny arm in the bucket.

To do so, after all, would be to judge, which seems to be the only sin recognized in an abortion practice.

They’ve been taught, after all, to see no sin in a grown man impregnating an 11-year-old girl….

She accepts the mangled little bodies as the price that is paid for “a woman’s life, allowed to proceed as she wants it to.” As if that 11-year-old girl is a woman whose life, after she leaves the facility, will proceed as she wants it to.

For her, for all but the most flippant women, it’s not over. It’s never over.

~ Christina Dunigan, reacting to a NY Mag piece written by “abortion doula” Alex Ronan, Real Choice, September 18
