Video: 12-year-old lays down the law on abortion

posted at 8:36 pm on February 11, 2009 by Allahpundit

Via Ace, because young talent in the service of a righteous cause deserves some extra publicity. Worth watching for the sheer precocity of the performance, which suggests she’s destined someday for Hollywood. She’d better learn to keep ideas like this to herself if she wants work.

some here do not like the fact that a 12 year old dares have an opinion …..yet the left will fight for the right of that 12 year old to end her own babys life on her own.

not very consistent

hey dave what do you think

if you have already addressed this sorry.

I wish the pro abortion nuts would tell us how in detail on how the operation is performed. Are they ashamed of it? They don’t want it shown on the media at all. For those who think Jesus is a myth are gambling on their eternity like a bull plowing through a china closet. I would not bet that amount of time ( no end to it by the way) on some of their on ideas. Remember Isaiah once said in the last days that people would call good evil and evil good in the last days. Those who would abort even up to the ninth month are indeed calling evil good. Isaiah was not far off was he?

Another thing libs, is the Bible can’t be picked and chosen. It reveals we are all sinners with free will. All the misery that was listed is because of the sin nature and people choose to keep doing it and its not God’s fault. The God of most High will not be replaced by libs such as Think again.

garydt on February 12, 2009 at 8:20 PM

I dread yet – I confess it – look forward to seeing the final, ultimate justice of unrepentant abortionists as they’re cast into the Lake of everlasting Fire.

Well, actually, the center of hell is a frozen lake! At least according to Dante. If I recall, betrayers are down there. I’d say the murder of 1 million+ babies a year falls into the betrayer category.

And I am pretty sure Al Gore is worried that lake in Hell will melt if we continue to be happy modernized and wealthy.

I didn’t read any of the previous comments….Having said that, I’m certain I’m repeating …
Those of you under 40 will see this young lady …again and again and again…
She will be a player for years to come for those who can’t defend themselves…
I applaud her efforts and pray she continues…god speed.

Hmm. Liberals (see: Vermont) think it’s a-ok to allow (and encourage) a 13 year old girl to get an abortion WITHOUT parental consent (or even knowledge of the abortion).

So Davey, I guess the messenger (who scared you so much) should have waited a precious year and THEN she would be juuust perfect, right?

Disgusting.

You say something you claim I would say and then you say you’re disgusted by the thing you claim I would say, but, of course, I have never said it. You’re a fu**ing moron.

what did you say dave?

jerrytbg on February 12, 2009 at 9:40 PM

David you seem so angry and I know the reason why and its because you seem to have no peace in your heart. You know when you failed to tell us the procedures of abortion that secretly you are ashamed. You need to do some soul searching and calling others morons and idiots won’t help your anger.

Do you ever sleep or eat or are you just a computer program claiming it’s from Canada and calling everyone stupid whom you disagree with?

I’m betting computer program. No actual human would spend this much time monitoring an out of country, opposition ideology website for the purpose of contributing such repetitive, predictably inane posts.

What a wretched creature you are, satisfying yourself with sadistic fantasies of seeing those who disagree with you suffer in agony for eternity. Any god that’d punish his creation in such ways would be a monster and a psychopath, which is why I’m glad none of those things (god, hell, heaven, etc) exist in reality.

If you truly oppose abortion you’d request that unwanted embryos be implanted in your body and raise the kid after. But of course even you don’t want to be stuck with that problem-its just easier to try to force others to do the same while you get all holier-than-thou on them from the sidelines.

For those who reject God’s mercy, it is right that they be punished as much as they deserve.
Aren’t you glad when, say, a notorious murderer is finally caught & sentenced?
Mercy for some, justice for those who reject mercy.

Abortion opponents are far more likely to adopt than pro-choicers.
We are far more likely to financially support others who adopt.
Those who don’t adopt have a right to oppose murder.

As the 12-year old wiz in this video reminds us, 99% of the cases are because the mother didn’t do something to prevent the conception. Then, after she fails to prevent the conception, the obligation to take care of the resulting child becomes a stranger’s obligation. When a person requires and demands that someone else to take care of their self-created problems, they bear the mark of the Democrat.

Consider further that your reasoning is applicable to children of any age. Why should birth suddenly obligate the mother to take care of the child? What has changed in the dependency arena — the child must still be sheltered and fed. In fact, it’s worse because the child is now pooping.

Since your reasoning is, therefore, applicable to children of any age (every child a wanted child, right?), then you must also be a fellow traveler to those rural villagers in China and India who practice post-natal abortion by exposing their unwanted female newborns.

In ancient Roman days the father had the right of life or death over his minor children. Since the father was the person providing the environment for the children, this too seems natural to your way of thinking.

Basically, to a person of your moral stripe, if a child is an inconvenience, it can be discarded. That was the point this 12-year old, infinitely wiser than you, was making with her Horton-Hatches-A-Who commentary. She is forcing you to look in the mirror and consider from whence you came.

Well, if you really oppose working conditions in foreign nations, you’ll spend your own money to pay those people more money. If you really oppose raping women, you’ll supply your own body for the sexual gratification of men who would otherwise take it out on women. If you really, truly oppose robbery, you’ll give everything you have to those in need, right?

/sarcasm

We don’t need to prevent the underlying reasons for wrongdoing in order to condemn it as wrong. I am under no obligation to pay for psychological help for every whack job out there who wants to beat, murder, rape, rob, and pillage; I’m only required to speak out against the evil those people would perpetrate, and, of course, not do it myself.

I would say, “Duh!” but common sense is lost on liberals.

jgapinoy on February 13, 2009 at 12:14 AM

Here let me quote you something equally nonsensical from a different work of fiction than the bible:

The 3 Laws of Robotics (Asimov):

1. A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.

2. A robot must obey orders given to it by human beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.

3. A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.

I am grateful for God’s Jabba the Hut’s mercy.
For those who reject God’s Jabba the Hut’s mercy, it is right that they be punished as much as they deserve.
Aren’t you glad when, say, a notorious murderer is finally caught & sentenced?
Mercy for some, justice for those who reject mercy.

As the 12-year old wiz kid coerced/coached to repeat the pro-life talking points in this video reminds us, 99% of the cases are because the mother didn’t do something to prevent the conception. Then, after she fails to prevent the conception, the obligation to take care of the resulting child becomes a stranger’s obligation.

So when you fail to repair your brakes/furnace/faucet, it becomes a stranger’s obligation? No its the mother’s responsibility and decision alone to fix it any way she pleases. Either by having the child or aborting it-that’s not for you to decide.

Basically, to a person of your moral stripe, if a child is an inconvenience, it can be discarded. That was the point this 12-year old, infinitely wiser than you, was making with her Horton-Hatches-A-Who commentary. She is forcing you to look in the mirror and consider from whence you came.

unclesmrgol on February 13, 2009 at 12:36 AM

An embryo is not a child and yes it can be discarded for being an inconvenience. I’m sorry if the idea of being forced to raise a baby you don’t want for 20 years and aborting it, troubles you that you cannot tolerate someone else making a decision for their own betterment. Christians are the biggest, most annoying busy-bodies sticking their noses where it doesn’t belong.

Roxeanne de Luca on February 13, 2009 at 2:14 AM

Your analogies do not hold water. You are unable to change the laws for workers in foreign countries, but you are trying to change the laws for abortion.

If you support the raping of women (like forcing them to carry unwanted babies), then yes one could expect you to volunteer your body for the cause. In which case you’ve bolstered my argument.

If you support robbery and the thieves suck at it, then you could give them money, but that’s irrelevant.

In the case of abortion you want women to be forced to have children they do not want and 77% of the country agrees with my position that abortions should be legal.

So if you are so strongly in favor of preventing abortions, why not become the surrogate mother for those unwanted babies? There is nothing unreasonable in my suggestion and medical science can allow that.

However it shows great weakness and hypocrisy in your position if (just like the mother) you don’t want that baby either, yet you want to force her to carry it. Does that make sense to try to force someone else to do something that you wouldn’t do yourself?

I’m not a liberal, I’m a centrist, I think there are some great and bad ideas on both sides of the political spectrum.

Let’s turn the tables for a moment. What if there were pro-abortion religious fanatics that demanded all women should be forced to abort their babies because their god wants the earth to have a tiny population and the world was overpopulated as it is.

This movement had a broad following and they were working hard to change the laws. As crazy as that sounds, they were succeeding and doctors were now forced to abort your children.

How would you like it if you right to have babies was trampled on and you were forced into doing something against your will by some religious nutjobs with their own agenda?

This is exactly what you pro-lifers are doing in reverse.

thinkagain on February 13, 2009 at 11:25 AM

Think again the embroyo may not be a human as you see fit but Christ Himself said He knew us before we were even born. I would rather trust what the Great Book says then your own philosphy which would be a drastic gamble on where you would spend your eternity. You can Brush God away but there is that Great Day we will all have to be accounted for. None of the pro abortion folks told us the procedures of abortion. If this was done on your favorite animals you would probably protest of the cruelity of it.

Your “Great (fairytale) Book” also says that you and all of humanity are incestuous descendants of clones made out of sand. Eve was Adam’s genetic twin sister (by rib) and their “children” were all related. Never mind they only had two sons and one killed the other.

I could probably go all day pointing out all the laughable absurdities our primitive ancestors wrote in your ‘great book’, like talking snakes, burning bushes, a megalomanical mass-murderer your god was and all the other fairy tales in the bible.

But the point being, to use the bible as justification for your morals and beliefs would be no better than to use Harry Potter for the same reason either way its asinine and its time Christians (and all religionists) join the 21st century and discard these backward iron age mythologies.

thinkagain on February 13, 2009 at 12:33 PM

Better be careful ThinkAgain,,, you are talking about an endless eternity. I am still trusting that book over your philosophy. The bible has been around lot longer then Harry Potter and it has predicted some things that are happening that is stated in the last days. Christ has made Himself real to me and I know for sure that He exists and lives. Even if I am wrong I have nothing to lose but a great life. By some chance that you are wrong you have gained your eighy to one hundred years but then you will have to show your account that you blundered. For me its an all win for you yourself, you are getting your reward now.

Did you know that the story of Christ is a plagiarization of the life of Buddha and Krishna who predate him by many hundreds of years? His story was also spread to Egypt and Persia. This ancient mythologies have been circulating around cultures in different forms for a long time.

You’ve been duped by snake-oil salesmen who wanted your money and submission to their will-you’ll never be a free person until you give up these silly ancient beliefs.

There is no life-after-death, god or any of those figments of the imagination found in the mythological text called the bible. You have only one life, stop living in fear and accepting irrational ideas just so you can avoid burning in an imaginary hell. God is as real as Santa Claus or the tooth fairy.

Also which ‘book’ is the correct one to get you to this paradise?(Which incidentally is another silly human wish/fantasy.) Muslims, Hindus, Jews, Mormons, etc all believe their religion is the correct one. How does one know who is right? Well if there was a god he would’ve already settled this question-this is why we have religious warfare. You’re brainwashed by a silly ideology, time to wise up and grow out of it.

Thinkagain,repent or burn.

splink on February 13, 2009 at 3:34 PM

Spoken like a true christian fascist-threats of hell-fire (similar to the muslim ‘convert or die’ slogan) if I refuse to join you in your mental illness.

I prefer this one: it is better to die on your feet than live on your knees, so go fuck yourself. I’m not about to bow to any slave religion Christianity, Islam or otherwise.
