Video: Planned Parenthood responds to Tim Tebow ad by “honoring family” or something

posted at 4:45 pm on February 4, 2010 by Allahpundit

Via Media Blog, a web-only salute to the empowering freedom to purge yourself of the inconvenience within. Two oddities here. First, we’re not precisely sure what it’s responding to: No one’s seen the Tebow ad yet, so no one knows if he’s going to attack abortion rights or merely urge women to choose life. (Sounds like it’s the latter.) Second, what’s with the spokesmen? There were no women athletes willing and able to step up for PP to counter the appearance by Tebow’s mom? Maybe they thought a men-only ad would be more likely to appeal to male football fans or maybe they wanted to make the point that there are plenty of male pro-choicers too, but it’s strange listening to Al Joyner celebrate his little girl’s right to choose knowing that Joyner himself had no right to choose whether that same little girl was carried to term.

Exit question: In the vast galaxy of liberal athletes, these were the highest-profile guys that PP could get? Even among retirees? Jordan? Barkley? Bill Bradley? Hello?

Thank you for keeping your heart, mind, and options open. Adoption is a wonderful alternative to abortion.

Evolution is a series of mutations that improve survivability of a species. Discriminating used to be a compliment ie, discriminating taste in fashion or music.

Sorry to have to correct you, but you are wrong.
Mutations are rare events & do contribute to speciation & evolution, but the official def of evolution is a change in the gene frequencies in a gene pool.
Genes are selected by all sorts of conditions, i.e. climate, competition, mating behavior etc.
Evolution is NOT a series of mutations.

I have not been involved in an abortion, so far as I know, but I would counsel my daughter to have one and would pay for it. I also have given money to PP.

Jimbo3 on February 1, 2010 at 5:43 PM

Wow.
You realize this speaks volumes about you.

In a few generations (or less), we will be able to design humans, and those will be far smarter, healthier, and long-lived than we are. The aforementioned problems with killer genes will be treatable, and gone.

We will never be able to keep ahead of the evolving of microbes.
Their dividing rates are simply too fast.
Designing a human that is void of ‘killer’ genes will never happen.
We may think we can arrogantly control the ins & outs of these things, but it will never happen.

That said, I must retract my agreement with him. I should have known better that to agree without knowing your response.

You are an excellent teacher.

Bless you, your family, and your new addition.

–Thanks for your offer as well.

–Badger, I thought surely you lived in Wisconsin given your screen name. I would never have guessed North Dakota in a million years.

My thanks to you. & thanks for the prayers-we need all we can get up here. Times are tough.

I have a fertile barn cat named Badger.
Does WI have lots of Badgers?
WY does.
Whoda thunk.
I am surprised anyone even remembers there is a ND, they never hardly mention us in the news.
We are pop-wise, real small.

It is rather funny that Planned Parenthood made such an amateurish video which, we are to think, is in answer to Tim Tebow and his mom celebrating Life Choice.

Furthermore, it is funny, and almost pathetic, that these men try to express affection and concern for their daughters on what is supposed to be a pro-abortion choice video clip.

Really, do fathers REALLY want their daughters to lay on a table, open their legs, allow a man, or woman, to insert various forms of cutting tools, chemicals, etc., all not for the purpose of preserving his daughter’s health, for she is not usually in any danger from a health problem, and, usually, abortion would never treat the health problem.

No. All that is being done is the woman is putting herself at risk of internal damage, hemorrhaging, perforations, damage to her reproductive organs, intestinal perforations, damage to her womb, etc. In fact, often women have been treated like cattle for the slaughter, when left to bleed, in agony, by botched abortions. Women have been harassed, beaten, and murdered for refusing to abort. Still other women have been victims of statutory rape, and other forms of intimidation, that abortion covers up, and the abortuaries aid and abet such abuse of women.

Let’s not even get started with the misinformation and flat out lies, and made up out of whole cloth fabricated, false “Science” in which abortuaries lie to women about the actual facts that this is a living human being, alive, human, not a potential human, not a potential life, etc.

Moreover, all this is being done, why?

So those brave, strong men in the video can have their grand daughter or grandson killed by the induced abortion, performed by an abortionist.

Yeah.

That makes a lot of sense.

That is what all men really want for their daughters, and grand daughters.

Kill their grand child, and put their daughter at risk, all at the hands of what is, essentially medical rape, violating his daughter’s body in order to KILL her daughter’s child, his grand child.

Now, that’s a REALLY special, desirable, privileged experience that we must not oppose, isn’t it?

Bottom line, again, this past week, Abortion choicers have proven that they are not “Pro-choice” unless that choice is for people killing other people via abortion.

They oppose the choice of life, as they vehemently expressed in their diatribe against Mrs. Tebow and her son, Tim, and CBS television, because CBS sold 30 seconds of time for them to celebrate the life choice they made.

Okay.

We all know abortion is a bunch of crap. It is merely a means for people to avoid the responsibility of caring for a child, of being “inconvenienced.” It is unnecessary, for today there are numerous avenues through which one can farm out the responsibility of raising a child to another person who actually WANTS to raise the child.

Under all this, not only are those men in the video clip endorsing the abuse of their daughters via abortionists and the staff, and endorsing the sloughier of their grand children, it is only men who appear in the video clip. Men benefit greatly from abortion. It allows men to “get off the hook” when they get a woman pregnant, and then, surprise, they really don’t love her after all, and don’t really want to have anything to do with her, or her baby. Essentially women are allowing themselves to be enslaved by men who push them to abortion because the men don’t want to be fathers, and don’t want to be committed to the women they have sex with.

So, abortion is a “get out of jail (responsibility) free card for men.

Ladies,

Please think before you engage in sex. If the men do NOT commit to you and show respect for you and your baby, your pregnancy, then the men use you for their own pleasure then discard you.

Get a clue.

Just say “No” to sex with men who don’t respect you or life.

That way you can avoid any excuse for getting abortion, putting yourself at risk, and killing your baby, and you can enjoy the joy of motherhood, and of actually experiencing real love and commitment from a man who really does love you, commits to you, stands by you and your baby.

All-in-all, it is pathetic that any man would actually condone and endorse the abuse of his daughter and the slaughter of his grand child by an abortionist. That speaks volumes to the misplaced values, lack of awareness, and perhaps even lack of love and respect for their daughers, and for life, of such men, and Planned Murderhood, er, I mean, Planned Parenthood.

Well, that was creepy.

Isn’t this a random PLANTED PARENTHOOD ad?

Huh? Did I say anything about keeping ahead of the evolution of microbes? I was talking about manipulating the human genome. Killer genes are those associated with genetic (inherited) diseases which kill. The way they work is for the gene to be recessive and for a human to inherit two of these recessive genes, which then proceed to express themselves and to kill the human who has them.

Designing a human that is void of ‘killer’ genes will never happen.
We may think we can arrogantly control the ins & outs of these things, but it will never happen.

I do not think that word means what you think it means. Or, as Bond would put it, “Never say Never.”

unclesmrgol on February 5, 2010 at 10:23 PM

Lucky guys! I see they weren’t aborted either!
