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:

Honest liberal: Roe v Wade abortion decision “hardly a secure footing”

Roe_v_Wade_Bad_Law abortionI’ve written before that it isn’t only pro-life scholars who believe the U.S. Supreme Court’s 1973 Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion was fundamentally flawed: Honest abortion proponents agree.

In a June 17 Truth-out.org article, pro-choice sociologist Salvatore Babones writes:

NY birth/abortion center hopes to “lessen stigma” of abortion

morrisonby Kelli

At a time when abortion rights are in jeopardy — Louisiana’s governor recently signed a bill that would close three of the state’s five clinics that offer abortions, Texas is likely to have only six clinics by September, because of a draconian new law, and other states are cracking down — fresh ideas like this might lessen the stigma of abortion….

  • Pro-Life Action League does not apologize for picketing hospitals that invite the “P.R. disaster” that will come as a result of granting abortionists admitting privileges:

    Admitting privileges legislation has made hospitals the gatekeeper for abortion clinics’ ability to remain open. That’s allowed protests to move away from the clinics themselves and back to the hospitals, a far more vulnerable target.

Moral of the story: Don’t depend on abortion for birth control or have sex with creeps

drive long distance abortion andrea grimes rh reality checkOn June 3, RH Reality Check’s Andrea Grimes wrote about the “abortion access crisis” in East Texas where, due to clinic closures, women are being forced to “travel hundreds of miles roundtrip to Houston, Dallas, or Shreveport for legal abortion care.”

Save one, the examples Grimes gave to draw sympathy didn’t, at least from me:

  • Republican senators in New York plan on blocking Governor Andrew Cuomo’s abortion legislation:

    The Republican leader of New York state’s Senate said Tuesday that he will block any abortion proposal from Gov. Andrew Cuomo, whether it’s to allow later-term abortions or protect current standards.

    “Expansion of late-term abortion is extreme, in my opinion. It’s not progressive, it’s extreme,” Senate Republican leader Dean Skelos said Tuesday.

Irish protest against legalizing abortion

On the cold, dark, wet winter’s evening of Jan. 19, without any media promotion and with little notice, an estimated 35,000 Irish people gathered in Dublin to oppose the government’s proposed legislation. In American terms, this would be equivalent to 3 million people attending Friday’s March for Life. The event was described as “extraordinary” and […]

Daily Kos editor: Pro-life “terrorists” to observe “Fetuspalooza”

Ah, January in Washington D.C. Bare trees, icy sidewalks, inauguration plans underway — and terrorists dressed up like sweet little grandmothers bussing to the nation’s capital, ready for their annual celebration of restricting women’s access to health care. That’s right, it’s time for Fetuspalooza 2013! Ever since the Supreme Court held in 1973 that yes, […]
