Good to hear the words.

Abortion is a business, people make money on it, but you’ll hear the works “abortion services” as if it were a give away. People make money on abortions.

Abortion is Big Business!

And further proof of this being the case is the full page ads in the phone book. I mean, do you have any idea what that costs?

Roe -v- Wade: Worst decision in SCOTUS History

rattrap47 on May 10, 2007 at 10:28 AM

Good lord, what a load of moralistic nonsense. As if abortion isn’t stigmatized enough in society – even DEMOCRATS push the whole “safe, legal, rare” line. No Democrat will actually say he/she favors abortion, when what they should be saying is that more abortions would have tangible social benefits. This movie isn’t doing anyone any favors by continuing to push the idea that abortions are morally reprehensible.

We all know that teenage out-of-wedlock childbirth is a MAJOR FACTOR that contributes to poverty in America. If public funds were available for abortions for the poor, there would be a lot less poor people.

What kind of “culture of life” says that it’s better for a girl to guarantee herself a life of poverty than to terminate a pregnancy that she’s unprepared for? It’s really better for young women to saddle themselves and their families with the burden of a child than to have an abortion? By stigmatizing abortion in America, we’ve created a social structure that keeps poor, mostly minority women from achieving economic independence, all in the name of some fabled “culture of life.”

What exactly are the benefits of this “culture of life?” The people that whine on incessantly about how abortion is ruining our moral character are the same people that don’t give a tinker’s cuss about locking up men for non-violent felonies; they’re the same people that favor the death penalty; they’re the same people that don’t mind launching wars. The “culture of life” is an insidious Orwellian construct that serves NOTHING. Maybe you “culture of life” folks think you’re on the right side of Jesus on this whole abortion thing, but you’re doing it at the expense of poor young women everywhere.

Obviously we should take the psychological consequences of abortion seriously, but maybe those consequences would be different if we lived in society that recognized abortion as a personal decision, not some grand tragedy of our times.

Aaaaaaaaand I’m done. Thanks. :)

And people (students) are being forced to watch An Inconvenient Truth! What is more of an Inconvenient Truth, a ¼ degree in the overall temperature of the entire planet earth, or the mass murder of millions of children!

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal and endowed by their creator with certain inalienable rights. Among these are the right to life, the right to life, the right to life, the right to life…beyond that there is no liberty and no pursuit of happiness!

austinnelly on May 10, 2007 at 10:59 AM

Enrique, killing off the elderly in this country would solve the “poverty problem” just as easily…AND you’d be getting rid of the least productive. At least the children offer a coming lifetime of service to society…

Are you for that too??

We don’t have either a population OR a poverty problem in this country. Our “poor” would be considered wealthy in truly poor countries.

tickleddragon on May 10, 2007 at 11:01 AM

For around 90% the abortions are a method of birth control (as opposed to rape or medical reasons). When did the choice move from before consenting to sex to after having sex?

eforhan on May 10, 2007 at 11:10 AM

Enrique,

I don’t know where to start. You are just wrong on just about every point you made.

Since abortion became legal every social ill has increased. Poverty, violent crime, suicide, drug abuse. You name it. So how does abortion help stem these things again? Good grief.

Believe that each human life is precious sorta kinda benefits a society imo. When you look at the ones who didn’t (see Hitler) you see what happens.

I don’t believe in the death penalty either, so there goes that point.

Anyone who thinks that poor women (or any woman) benefits in any way from destroying her own child is fooling themselves.

Rightwingsparkle on May 10, 2007 at 11:21 AM

Enrique, you certainly cannot be serious. Adoption is an option adn there are plenty of people who want a child who cannot have one for some reason or another. As for your statement Obviously we should take the psychological consequences of abortion seriously, but maybe those consequences would be different if we lived in society that recognized abortion as a personal decision, not some grand tragedy of our times.

, well I only have this to say to you, it is a grand tragedy of our time and anyone who says they’re not affected (either male or female) is lying to themselves, including that crowd that wear their “I’m proud to have had an abortion” t-shirts.

Catie96706 on May 10, 2007 at 11:23 AM

Yes, because we’d be killing them all off.

In fact, that’s what Margie Sanger wanted in the first place: to kill off an entire group of people, namely blacks. She would be proud of what has happened.

Esthier on May 10, 2007 at 11:30 AM

Not only that, but teen single mothers have actually INCREASED since abortion became legal, so obviously abortion isn’t even helping to keep teens from becomings poor, single mothers.

Esthier on May 10, 2007 at 11:31 AM

You know what, you’re a man, so clearly, according to pro-choicers anyway, you have no say here.

I’m mostly sarcastic, but it’s also true. As a man, you simply don’t get what it’s like to have life growing inside you, and you simply don’t get what it’s like to be the one responsible for ending that life.

This guilt is something women feel even when it’s not their fault, even when they miscarry.

Part of it is simple hormones that course through our veins during a pregnancy. Imagine that, our bodies don’t want the baby growing inside us to die.

You just don’t get it.

Esthier on May 10, 2007 at 11:34 AM

Michelle & Bryan,
Bless you both for daring to play this trailer and air this clip. You will no doubt receive rebukes for this but know this…the truth always casts light on the dark.
When my wife and I first heard my son’s heart beat in the womb is sounded like a sparrows heart beat. Rapid and strong. Today our son is 14 years old and a gift from God.
May God richly bless you.

Wow. I can hear the liberal wailing and gnashing of teeth from here….

Good job.

And please don’t act like MM is brave for doing this. Speaking truth to liberals is like breathing for Michelle.

unamused on May 10, 2007 at 11:39 AM

Ugh. I hate to defend him, but as long as men have no choice to legally abort (cut all ties with the mother and infant), men –even pro-choicers– do have a say. We don’t, and even if we say we don’t want the baby, we’re still forced to pay child support (yes, it’s irresponsible, but since when does responsibility matter? ;) ).

As a man, you simply don’t get what it’s like to have life growing inside you, and you simply don’t get what it’s like to be the one responsible for ending that life.

Well, there’s no doubt about that.

On the pro-life side, I would argue that one can be against slavery without being Black–and that one can always be against murder, no matter what sex he or she is.

eforhan on May 10, 2007 at 11:48 AM

Enrique on May 10, 2007 at 10:40 AM

You were done before you even started that screed of vile claptrap.

csdeven on May 10, 2007 at 12:04 PM

To be fair, I’m not saying that men shouldn’t have a say, but in reality, when it comes to abortion, they don’t. If I was pregnant and wanted a divorce, even my husband would not be able to prevent me from having one.

Those are just facts.

Men are allowed to debate this, but that doesn’t mean they get a say when it comes to the actual decision.

And of course, men can have an opinion on the matter, that’s not what I was saying.

I’m only saying that as a man, he doesn’t get that the guilt these women feel is not simply a product of their environment. The guilt is real and is more a product of themselves than anything else.

Women are very much hormonal, and our hormones are primarily geared towards getting us to create life. When that is disrupted, it’s a big deal.

I wasn’t pulling the “it’s my body and men don’t know” thing. I’m only saying that the emotions women feel have nothing to do with the “stigma of abortion.”

And last, if abortion were left to be decided on by women, and men were left out of it all, it would not be legal. So in one sense, I do wish only those directly effected had a say.

Afterall, slavery would not have been legal if blacks had the only say. The victims of any crime, and I’d put women in the category of abortion, will always be quicker to take a stand against that crime than anyone else.

I don’t want men out of this debate, but if they’re going to pretend to understand why women feel a certain way, they may as well chunk their computers out the window.

Esthier on May 10, 2007 at 12:38 PM

You can be nine years old and walk into any free clinic and get free condoms in the bathroom or free birth control pills under false names like Mickey Mouse. There are no excuses for unwanted pregnancies in our country besides:
1. rape
2. incest
3. irresponsibility.

Granted young girls and boys don’t necessarily understand responsibility, but what better way to learn than creating a life and putting it up for adoption or raising it with help of family and/or “the village”/welfare state?

Six weeks ago my baby and I both almost died in labor. We both fought so hard to live. It’s a travesty and disgrace that so many lives are irreverently destroyed in a “civilized” country like the US when so many people would give anything to have the chance to save them. And they use the sorry excuse of “women’s rights.” We have the right to choose whether or not we get pregnant!

NTWR on May 10, 2007 at 12:47 PM

What kind of “culture of life” says that it’s better for a girl to guarantee herself a life of poverty than to terminate a pregnancy that she’s unprepared for?

Option 1: use birth control
Option 2: adoption

It’s really better for young women to saddle themselves and their families with the burden of a child than to have an abortion?

See Options 1 and 2 above.

hey’re the same people that favor the death penalty;

I’m against abortion and the death penalty. So that argument doesn’t fly.

Maybe you “culture of life” folks think you’re on the right side of Jesus on this whole abortion thing, but you’re doing it at the expense of poor young women everywhere.

So killing an unborn child will raise the poor out of poverty? What an incredibly simplistic comment.

The women are the victims? What about the unborn children (half of whom are female)? Are they victims? Do they get a say?

Csdeven, we’ve gone a couple of rounds before – but today, I salute you!

The Ritz on May 10, 2007 at 2:29 PM

As I write this, I have my three month old baby on my lap.

When I would go to my Midwife appointments while I was pregnant, there was a chart on the wall that showed the baby’s progress from month-to-month. It showed a picture of the approximate size of the baby, and a little paragraph about what the baby is doing that month. I’ve never been to an abortion clinic, but do they have that poster on the wall there? I’m guessing not.

It might make a difference if they did…

Starfox5253 on May 10, 2007 at 2:40 PM

We have the right to choose whether or not we get pregnant!
NTWR on May 10, 2007 at 12:47 PM

Thank you for putting the emphasis BACK on individual responsibility where it belongs.

Everyone does the wrong thing at some time in their life – the key to growth and maturity is to accept responsibility for the poor choice and to do what it takes to ensure others don’t suffer for that choice. The day that my irresponsibility costs someone else their life is a tragic day indeed. This is what “poor mothers” need to hear.

Speaking the truth is authentic compassion. But it’s also only the beginning. Pro-lifers should also be willing to support those agencies and ministries that come along side moms-to-be and do the hard work of assisting them to adoption or all the way through delivery and into young motherhood.

The Ritz on May 10, 2007 at 2:44 PM

The women are the victims? What about the unborn children (half of whom are female)? Are they victims? Do they get a say?

aunursa on May 10, 2007 at 2:06 PM

As a general rule, no, dead people do not get a say.

Some of you are picking on every little thing I write. Just because I didn’t mention that the murdered babies are also victims, it does not mean that they are not victims.

I was only saying that women are live victims of abortion. I’m only saying that abortion does more harm than good to women.

Am I clear enough yet?

Esthier on May 10, 2007 at 3:07 PM

It is murder; It is reprhensible; and The Good Lord does not think it is moralistic nonsense.

Abortion is a reality, not a good one. One that should be condemned. That the decision presently resides as a “constitutional right” of the impregnated woman does not make it correct; No more that the right to murder (abort) is correct.

MarkB on May 10, 2007 at 3:18 PM

MM’s shirt says “Love Is A Dirty Word”.

Regarding abortion, I was pro-choice up until I saw the first ultrasound of my eldest daughter. After her sister was born, I got m’self fixed. So, that’s not so much an issue in this household. No Krydor Jr.’s but a couple of Krydorettes.

Regardless, there is a serious issue here regarding unwed mothers with multiple pregnancies. Is that a road that is permissible to travel in this discussion? Plenty of conservative taboos to be tweaked and some 300 lb elephants in the room, to boot.

Krydor on May 10, 2007 at 3:39 PM

Krydor on May 10, 2007 at 3:39 PM

Of course that’s a serious issue, but abortion isn’t the answer. If it was, these unwed mothers would be less in number than before, not more.

Esthier on May 10, 2007 at 3:44 PM

Thanks MM for this vent. I feel that everyone here hasn’t been aborted……….right? I find that is a good thing and I for one am glad my mother didn’t abort me or my other 9 siblings. Youth wasn’t easy but who said life has to be easy? I feel that taking this issue out in the open is the best way to get our country back on track. How many lives have been wasted since this was made into law? I feel it was the worst curse on our country and UNTIL abortion ceases to be preformed our country will not be founded on its’historic principles.I pray for all abortions to be a thing of the past. I hope it comes to our country sooner than later.

bones47 on May 10, 2007 at 4:14 PM

As a general rule, no, dead people do not get a say.

Some of you are picking on every little thing I write. Just because I didn’t mention that the murdered babies are also victims, it does not mean that they are not victims.

The unborn children are not dead before the choice is made. Do the unborn get a choice as to whether they will be aborted or born?

I was only saying that women are live victims of abortion. I’m only saying that abortion does more harm than good to women.

That’s like saying that a person who is killed isn’t a live victim of murder after the fact because he is now dead.

I submit that abortion does more harm to the unborn child than to the mother.

aunursa on May 10, 2007 at 4:33 PM

The women in that movie seem to be victims of a society that calls killing an unborn baby a “surgical procedure” –and not the completely safe procedure people are led to believe.

eforhan on May 10, 2007 at 4:51 PM

The unborn children are not dead before the choice is made. Do the unborn get a choice as to whether they will be aborted or born?

No, since they cannot speak, very clearly they do not have a voice. So my comment still stands.

That’s like saying that a person who is killed isn’t a live victim of murder after the fact because he is now dead.

Yeah, that’s exactly what it is. A dead person is not a live victim.

I submit that abortion does more harm to the unborn child than to the mother.

aunursa on May 10, 2007 at 4:33 PM

Right. Killing something is worse than emotionally scarring and causing bodily harm to someone. I NEVER SAID IT WASN’T.

Really. Please. I can see that you’re passionate about this, but don’t let your passion blind you. I’m on your side in this fight.

The only thing I was saying is that abortion is bad for women. PERIOD.

I also agree that it’s bad for unborn babies, but I would hope that goes without saying. Aparently in this case it did not.

Esthier on May 10, 2007 at 5:06 PM

eforhan on May 10, 2007 at 4:51 PM

And that’s exactly the point I have been trying to make.

NOT that abortion is good for babies but just that it harms women.

Esthier on May 10, 2007 at 5:07 PM

Why does Enrique feel the way he does? John 3:19-21–“And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.” Becasue those who live in the darkness do not want to come to the light.

The whole, “Women should be able to get abortions because of poverty” line is really old, tired, worn out, and patently false. Whether or not a child lives in poverty, it is not up to us decide whether he lives or dies. Like tickleddragon said, why not just kill off the elderly, and thus solve the Social Security mess? Because it is wrong.

Enrique, the reason we keep up the “abortion is murder” drumbeat is because for the last 30+ years, the pro-abortion side has been banging the “choice” drum. And finally, this country is starting to hear us. And we ain’t about to stop now.

And if these pro-abortion people are all about “reproductive rights” and “reproductive health”, then why are they so opposed to placing sanitary standards on abortion clinics, to bring them up to the level of even a dentist’s office?

Bradky on May 10, 2007 at 6:14 PM

Looks like a must see documentary. I can practically hear the shrill cries from the Left about what this documentary clearly dicusses which is the cruelty and inhumanity that is abortion as a means of birth control. Unfortunately the only documentary we’ll be hearing about on the news is Michael Moore’s “Sicko”, especially since he’s in some trouble with the law over his trip to Cuba.

Yakko77 on May 10, 2007 at 7:24 PM

To get an indepth idea of what “BIG Abortion” has done to the minority population and why, read “The New American Revolution” by Tammy Bruce and “Bamboozled” by Angela McGowan. The libs always call us cons “racist” yet it is they, not us, who want as many black and hispanic children as possible to die before they’re even born (and that makes no sense, they’re aborting their most important voting bloc) and it is we, not they, who want those children to live (regardless of who they’re gonna vote for).

Tony737 on May 10, 2007 at 8:09 PM

Esthier on May 10, 2007 at 5:06 PM

I misunderstood your comments. My apologies.

aunursa on May 10, 2007 at 8:28 PM

I feel VERY strongly about abortion.
I was planned and preemie and “normal” at birth. I was born before Roe V Wade btw.
As a pre-schooler the educrats noticed something was “different” about me-I was bright but I moved in an unusual way etc.
I was thrown in the special ed system and for the next decade my parents fought tooth and nail for their quirky daughter.
This is ON topic.
3 1/2 year years ago I finally was given an answer to the question of “Why am I so different”.
I have Asperger’s Syndrome-a form of very high functioning autism. Emily Dickinson, Einstein, and Thomas Jefferson were all likely Aspies.
My son also has some very Aspie traits.
One of my friends has an obviously severely autistic daughter.
This all fits into this topic here:
Doctors in GB are trying to come up with(if they haven’t already) an inter-uterine test for autism-kind of like the one that already exists for Downs Syndrome.

If the test is positive for “autism” the mother with be given the option of “terminating” her “defective” baby.

Who the HELL gave anyone the right to kill babies that might grow up to be like me, or Ashley, or my son?!!!!
We may be a bit atypical but we are not-nor is any disabled person- a MISTAKE that should have been destroyed rather allowed to be born!!!
Heaven forbid that someone might be inconvienienced because of a less than perfect baby.

And yet the abortion industry fools mothers of potentially disabled babies into believing that the most mercifulthing the mother can do is to make “it” disappear.

Was Einstein a “mistake”, Bill Gates, Edison…?

You tell me.

annoyinglittletwerp on May 10, 2007 at 8:45 PM

Looks pretty powerful.

As someone who used to be pro-abortion, and turned pro-life at the same time I became a conservative, I can identify with the guy in the film who said he was short of breath after realizing that what he was talking about was a life. I felt the same.

To go from being pro-abortion to pro-life was one of the most liberating experiences I’ve ever gone through. I look back on my pro-abortion days with shame, but also know that having a good idea of how a pro-abortionist things helps me to be able to understand their rationale – or lack thereof – and helps me more in being able to precisely dissect their arguments.

SisterToldjah on May 10, 2007 at 9:12 PM

Great Vent Michelle, hard hitting is becoming an understatement. Thank you for presenting this trailer.

The topic is important, life and death important. The discussion we are having here will be an important part of the Republican primary process. My vote will go to the pro-life candidate. So, in a way similar to your “I am John Doe” Vent, I say…

I am Pro-Life.

Zorro on May 10, 2007 at 9:16 PM

Oops – that should be “thinks” – not “things.” Where’s that preview button when you need it? :)

SisterToldjah on May 10, 2007 at 9:19 PM

The pro abortion people and we pro-lifers live in parallel tunnels. Human life is human life. To the pro abortion advocate that life has no value until it escapes the womb. To the pro-life advocate human life has value period. There is NO common ground. There is NO place of compromise. All the high minded excuses for the killing of the unborn don’t carry any water in the face of the eternal value of life.

We all know that teenage out-of-wedlock childbirth is a MAJOR FACTOR that contributes to poverty in America. If public funds were available for abortions for the poor, there would be a lot less poor people. Enrique on May 10, 2007 at 10:40 AM

..stupid on so many levels. …or in other words “if we killed more poor people, there would be a lot less poor people.” There is just no way around it. Killing a person a few months before they leave the womb is still killing them.

I ordered the documentary today. It’s on backorder…so cool, they ran out already!

jjjen on May 10, 2007 at 9:45 PM

There is NO common ground. There is NO place of compromise.

Who says? I bet you’d be surprised how many pro-lifers would walk away from the cause if we knew abortion was only used in rape cases or medical reasons. Not all, sure, but quite a few. I would.

eforhan on May 10, 2007 at 10:26 PM

I thought we were through punishing the children for the sins of the fathers. Guess not.

Mojave Mark on May 10, 2007 at 10:35 PM

And one more thing! Hillary and those like her approve of a 14 year old girl waltzing into a Planned Parenthood Clinic to get an abortion on demand; a procedure which could scar her for life, cause a lifetime of pain and discomfort, complicate any future delivery, prevent her from every having a child or, worse yet, COST HER HER LIFE!

Yet they yell and scream about kids being exposed to Howard Stern, Opie and Anthony, Video Games, Movies and Music because of the “damage these things do to them!!!!” WHAT THE HELL DO YOU CALL THAT?

Well there is a God! There really is a God! And He is just and they will be called to answer for killing His children.

Dread Pirate Roberts VI on May 10, 2007 at 10:36 PM

At 13 I needed my parents signed permission to get my ears pierced- but not to get an abortion.
What. Is. Wrong. With. This. Picture?

annoyinglittletwerp on May 10, 2007 at 10:43 PM

I think the federal government should pay for abortions, but only for minorities and the poor.

(OK, if this were a liberal blog, that’s where I’d stop, but here, let me say that Of course I’m being sarcastic! Hey, as long as I’m on a roll, any pro-abortion rallies happening on Mother’s Day?)

On a serious note, when the subject is global warming, you often hear the argument that if they’re wrong, at least let’s err on the side of caution. I never hear that about abortion.

DuffBeer on May 11, 2007 at 12:34 AM

Ironic that this Vent was posted on the day my son was born. Abortion is the ending of a human life. This is not religious dogma, this is scientific fact.

Men are allowed to debate this, but that doesn’t mean they get a say when it comes to the actual decision.

We can vote, we can take care of our children, we can use birth control. We can reassure a woman who is pregnant that we will provide for that child so that that excuse cannot be used in the decision to kill. We can, as a part of a community, shun people who take life or allow it to be taken casually.

Bill C on May 11, 2007 at 8:57 AM

That is so very true. And I pray that if more men do these things that more women will run out of excuses for ending the life of their children.

I just think it’s tragic that the ultimate decision is completely taken out of their hands.
