Stanek weekend question: What is the pro-life response to illegal, unsafe abortions?

by Suki Carder I read a quote in Al Jazeera on April 26 by Dr. Linda Valencia, Guatemala Program Officer of Planned Parenthood Federation of America:

Snapping picture peeves Planned Parenthood peddlers

I asked Jenani why they were collecting signatures. “We’re not.” She said. “We’re collecting donations. Planned Parenthood has lost $19 million in government funding.” “Good.” I thought. A customer walked out of the store and said to me, “I think I probably agree with you.” She then began to speak her mind to Jenani regarding […]

Zo’s latest rant: Worshipping Mother Earth

You see, God had a real problem with people worshiping other gods because of the things that people would do in their idol worship. Things like incest, cannibalism, child sacrifice, and God really hates child sacrifice. Tribes that worshiped other idols had a bad habit of doing that. And the same mentality of those tribes […]

war-on-women

I’m a pro-choice individual who actually acknowledges that those who disagree with me are not raging, full blown misogynists. What’s my reasoning you might ask? I’m happy to oblige.

First and foremost, I don’t buy the idea that people who are pro-life hold that position because they seek to control women’s bodies. This is a myth perpetuated by many Democrats as part of the “War on Women.” To attack the pro-life position as a “War on Women” is to completely ignore the much more widely cited reason for being pro-life, which is concern that fetus’s [sic] being aborted are in fact alive and sentient….

Here’s another reason why pro-life individuals are not inherently sexist. It’s seemingly obvious but is almost completely ignored in the abortion debate. Tens of millions of women are pro-life. According to Gallup polling, as many as 41 percent of women identify as pro-life. That’s almost half!

Did Anthony Brown and Mark Udall intend to convince voters that almost half of all American women are self-hating sexists, Hell-bent on waging war on… themselves? Regardless of their intentions, women saw through their illogical and downright dishonest allegations. Both candidates lost easily winnable races.

Women are smart. Democrats know that right? I mean come on! You’ve got some of the smartest women in the world as your rising stars…. Women see through cynical pandering.

Next time, try running on your accomplishments. It’s not like you have a dearth of other issues to talk about. Same sex marriage and the minimum wage have been trending your way for instance. However, if you use those issues, please try to refrain from calling people against same sex marriage homophobic and those against an increased the minimum wage classist. Instead, try actually having an honest debate about the policies themselves. You’ll catch more flies with honey than with vinegar. Similarly, you’ll catch more votes with good policies, than with disingenuous accusations of prejudice.
