Laws, lies and videotape

The cleverly named pro-abortion group National Advocates for Pregnant Women has become alarmed at the number of personhood initiatives popping up in various states.

So it has produced 4 attack ads attempting to show how giving preborn babies legal status as persons usurps pregnant mothers' legal rights, forcing them through the courts to maintain pregnancies even if doing so kills them and forcing them to deliver babies via c-section against their will, etc.

The latest American Life League video report shows the ads, dissecting their lies and adding doses of truth. This report shows how pro-aborts twist, turn, and omit factual details to make their false points....


Yeah, I've seen these guys on YouTube. They really make me mad. They are SOOOOO disingenuous! If there's anything I really really hate, it's people attempting to misrepresent themselves to garner support from people who don't know any better.

It was funny, because throughout the entire thing, they tried to act so pro-life, but then at the very last, a woman characterized her unborn baby as a "potential child", and I knew what they were all about.

These people infuriate me!

Dear heavens, I clicked on their website and found a list of hateful articles against anti-violence measures, measures which seek to protect more pregnant women from violence as well as children.

How can they call themselves supportive of women's rights and still be alright with violence against women and children, just because their bias says, "Oh, these are the useless members of society." Yet they call themselves advocates of minorities? They have probably never even set foot in a Hispanic community, or set foot in an African American community, or have no experience working with the members of society who they are trying very hard to eliminate.

They have no idea what life is like for some of these women...

As pro-life activists, we may not know, either, but we can allow them a medium with which to communicate their feelings and do what we can to stand with them, to treat them as more than a statistic.

I hate propaganda. I'm actually seeing red spots I'm so furious with a group like this, that would do that to women and children and tell them, "It's good for you." I don't think that profanity is appreciated on this website, but I have some very choice words for them...

they need someone like HisMan's daughter to do these short videos. ;)
the young man in these video's doesn't have the appeal and once again it's a man telling women what they must do.
just doesn't go over well in my books......

it's all about PR!

After reading your comment, I went ahead and clicked on the link. Boy-o, were you right! Not that I expected good things after some of the comments I've recently run across regarding this particular organization, but wow!

Talk about a wolf in sheep's clothing!

The National Advocates for Pregnant Women not only responds to this video, but publishes an 8-page document attempting to refute the video and ALL's President, Judie Brown, claims.

Here's more on Laws, lies:

Bear with me for just a moment to give you the facts.

In 1930 the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) came into being to advocate for the rights of American children.

By 1937 the AAP developed the definition for whom they advocate for -- they called it the "Age Limits of Pediatrics."

On December 1, 1971 (more than 13 months prior to Roe v. Wade) this Age Limits definition was further expanded to include from conception. Yes, I said from conception.

The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), who traditionally is thought to have the purview of the unborn, approved this pediatrician involvement in decisions regarding the unborn.

Age Limits of Pediatrics remains the policy of the AAP to the present.

With Roe v. Wade, several organizations filed amicus briefs, including ACOG, Planned Parenthood and the AMA. The American Academy of Pediatrics did not.

Surviving AAP leaders provide no answer why the AAP remained silent. Current leaders of the AAP also offer no comment.

How could Justice Harry A. Blackmun conclude that “we need not resolve the difficult question of when life begins?” It appears the decision reached by the Justices on Roe v. Wade hinged on this mistaken conclusion.

The AAP had already answered the question -- how can they advocate for children, from conception, if human life does not begin at that moment? The AAP does not advocate for tissue or a clump of cells. They advocate for children, from conception.

Why did the Court not seek the opinion of the one organization who advocates for the child?

Why did the AAP leadership not choose to comment on such a crucial issue?

If this is true, and I believe it is, then we have denied life to millions of American children!

Why wont anyone listen?

I have documentation for all the facts included.

Paltrow's response to A.L.L.'s video is an 8 page document.
