Abortion supporters clash on whether late term abortions are tragic or trivial

151

It was pro-abortion President Bill Clinton who first coined the term “safe, legal, and rare” in the early 1990s to describe his supposedly moderate view on abortion.

The phrase served Clinton well during the years-long partial birth abortion debate, making him sound reasonable even as he vetoed a ban against the heinous procedure twice. The conflicted masses liked it as well.

But abortion zealots got stuck on that word “rare.” As proponent Jessica Valenti wrote in The Guardian last year:

  • A newborn baby boy in Utah is in critical condition after his mother abandoned him in a trash can and was found by neighbors who thought they were hearing a kitten:

    Police say the 24-year-old mother later returned to the scene and told officers that she’d left the baby there about an hour before he was found.

  • Time has a piece by Laura Stampler attempting to promote abortion advocates and their lame Taco or Beer challenge. The piece is entitled “New Viral Fundraiser,” despite only having 127 posts (at this moment) on Tumblr.

Insider photo verifies Planned Parenthood has abortion quotas

Evidence of Planned Parenthood abortion quotas, awards

The photo above was taken by a former Planned Parenthood employee, who forwarded it to former Planned Parenthood clinic manager Abby Johnson, a converted pro-life activist. Abby explained what the award meant:

Live Action “Inhuman” investigative video #5: hotel room abortions

2013-07-01_1048

Today Live Action released the fifth in its Inhuman investigative video series on late-term abortions in America.

LA’ new video exposes an abortionist at Southwestern Women’s Options abortion clinic in Albuquerque, New Mexico, admitting that part of the process of a late-term abortion may be delivering one’s expectantly dead baby alone in a hotel room (beginning at 3:55) – but in that event, for goodness sakes, don’t call 911….

From “safe, legal and rare” to an abortion free-for-all

Whatever happened to keeping abortion “safe, legal, and rare”? Those goals just don’t fit the needs of the abortion industry anymore. Last night the abortion crowd, or perhaps I should say “mob”… managed to filibuster a [Texas] bill which would help regulate abortions…. Why did a senator oppose the bill with hours of filibustering? Why […]

Obama dances around topic of Gosnell

Obama-Gosnell

In a Today Show interview taped earlier in the week but airing today, President Obama was (thankfully) asked about Kermit Gosnell. Watch video beginning at 3:00…

  • Another Philadelphia abortionist testified for the prosecution today in Kermit Gosnell’s murder trial. While pro-choice bloggers are crowing about access to abortion in Philadelphia, today’s witness notes that he is one of 4 abortionists left in the city:

    Dr. Charles Benjamin is one of about four abortion providers left in Philadelphia in the wake of Dr. Kermit Gosnell’s arrest two years ago. His testimony was received by “an influx of reporters.”

    Benjamin, by his own count, has performed 40,000 abortions over a 30-year career. He doesn’t do them after 21 weeks, or three weeks shy of the 24-week limit in Pennsylvania, he said.

    Gosnell is accused of performing illegal, late-term abortions and running a dangerously outdated clinic staffed by untrained workers. Benjamin said that he has registered nurses on staff to monitor patients, and that only he or a nurse anesthetist give anesthesia, unlike Gosnell’s clinic, where workers hired to clean instruments or handle paperwork have testified that Gosnell trained them to administer potent intravenous drugs….

    An influx of reporters attended the trial Monday, spurred by criticism that some broadcasters were not covering the trial. A gag order prevents lawyers from speaking outside and no cameras are allowed inside the courtroom.

Abortion is “no more a political issue than slavery”

Two Posters on Not a HUMAN BeingOddly, at its root, abortion really isn’t a political issue at all. It’s a cultural revolutionary ideal and tactic. It has been indispensable in advancing radical feminism. It becomes political to the extent that it was thrust on this nation by the US Supreme Court in one of the most raw acts of judicial activism. Strictly speaking, it is a state’s rights issue, and the people have been robbed of their ability to decide this at the ballot box, or through their elected representatives.
