Video: Don’t forget to vote for abortion rights tomorrow, mommy

posted at 8:49 pm on November 5, 2012 by Allahpundit

Via Life News, a bit of election eve good cheer from the Twitter feed of Planned Parenthood’s PAC. Just this morning I was thinking, “You know what America’s abortion debate needs? More spokes-toddlers.” Reminds me of when companies in the food industry try to sell their product with cuddly cartoon representations of the creatures they’re harvesting. If only someone would take the logical next step and do a vid of an animated fetus extolling the virtues of “choice,” I think we might finally achieve the long elusive national consensus.

Coincidentally, I’m working on a pro-death penalty video featuring four-year-olds entitled, “Throw the Switch.” Exit question for moms: You’re not really going to vote for Mitt Romney tomorrow and deny your daughter the chance to deny you a granddaughter, are you?

Appeals court questions Arizona’s late-term abortion ban

SAN FRANCISCO | Mon Nov 5, 2012 8:45pm EST
********************************************

(Reuters) – A federal appeals court panel on Monday sharply questioned lawyers defending an Arizona law that bans late-term abortions starting at 20 weeks of pregnancy except in medical emergencies, which opponents say is the toughest in the United States.

In San Francisco, a three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals heard the case after it blocked the Republican-backed Arizona law from going into effect earlier this year. Three abortion providers challenged the law in court.

The Arizona law bars doctors from performing abortions starting at 20 weeks of pregnancy, except in medical emergencies, and could send doctors who perform them to jail.

The American Civil Liberties Union, which is suing to stop the law, said it was more extreme than similar laws elsewhere, because the way Arizona measures gestation means it would bar abortions two weeks earlier than in other states.

Those states also set the limit at 20 weeks but have different ways to calculate gestation time. Arizona already bans abortions at the point of viability, when a fetus might survive outside the womb, generally at 23 to 24 weeks.(More…)

The “parents” and I use the word loosely, are worse than the evil people who came up with this ad. I hope every child in it grows up to be a staunch conservative and asks their parents some VERY hard questions!

Thank God, this beautiful child was not aborted. I didn’t have to watch the video to come to that conclusion.

Vote Romney.

Fallon on November 5, 2012 at 9:31 PM

It’s sad they way they use kids as props for their agenda. They could instruct the kid to tell everyone that Ann Romney should be whipped with a Sam Brown belt and the kid would be like “What? Ok. Good.”

As if toddlers even know what the hell is being said in this vid.

Bishop on November 5, 2012 at 9:33 PM

I’ve never understood how a mother can be pro-choice.

Many years ago I was told my unborn son had trisomy 13. The sonographer described his deformities to me in detail, her voice growing progressively more horrified, and wound it up with “You’re keeping him? You’re really not having an abortion?” She could not fathom it.

RIP, Joshua.

With medical science today (pre-ObamaCare) there are almost no instances in which if a mother’s life is endangered, the baby is not also viable outside the womb. (In an ectopic pregnancy I believe both would die).

I’ve recently read someone who said there are now none, but I cannot remember who.

During the 2008 election, McCain carried evangelicals 55-45 over Obama. Your are not hearing polling about how the evangelicals are turning this election cycle. Why? Not good for Obama! If Romney can increase his lead to a +18 or greater, I don’t care what the pundits say, Romney carries Ohio big.

“…The very smallness of children makes it possible to regard them as marvels; we seem to be dealing with a new race, only to been through a microscope. I doubt if anyone of any tenderness or imagination can see the hand of a child and not be a little frightened of it. It is awful to think of the essential human energy moving so tiny a thing; it is like imagining that human nature could live in the wing of a butterfly or the leaf of a tree. When we look upon lives so human and yet so small. . . we feel the same kind of obligation to these creatures that [God] might feel. . . ” – GK Chesterton

Imagine the following:

A major figure of a mainstream political party spent vast amounts of time and money campaigning on making sure every man, woman, child, and church subsidized Viagra with your tax dollars, claiming it was a Men’s Rights issue, and anyone opposed to such was virulently anti-man. And I mean every single stop they declared the was a War on Men, that the opposition hated Men for not subsidizing Viagra, and that to oppose their position on the subsidy of Viagra was an admission of disgusting misanthropy.

You would laugh such a person out of serious contention for any office.

Two points:

1. Viagra actually restores function to the male reproductive system whereas birth control by and large operates by making an otherwise healthy female reproductive system infertile.
2. The entire Democratic Party makes the subsidy of birth control an issue at every single level of political office, and insinuates anyone opposed to such subsidy is virulently anti-woman.

The entire birth control issue is condescending and stupid. I don’t know how the Democratic Party gets away with it.

Here is what is so freaking stupid about the brouhaha over “Arizona is counting differently!!!” Let’s say you ovulate today and get pregnant. You find out about it 2 weeks from now when you miss your period. You go to the Doctor, and they ask you WHEN YOUR LAST PERIOD WAS. That is when the counting starts. They don’t ask you when your baby was conceived. They ask you when your last period was, and start counting 40 weeks from then. All doctors do this, all information about pregnancy does this, every freaking time someone talks about gestational age, they start about 2 weeks before you ovulated/conceived (depending if you have regular periods or irregular periods)

http://www.americanpregnancy.org/duringpregnancy/calculatingdates.html

Except for abortion. Then, you have to start counting exactly when sperm meets egg. Pushing the “weeks” milestone out another two weeks compared to every other medical doctor out there.

When we hear about “viability” they are talking about a regularly measured weeks count, so 22-23 weeks, just as Arizona and all of America’s doctors are counting. That means other states are allowing “2 weeks after viability abortion.”

The kid ought to be saying something about ducking a bullet or whatever.

A friend of mine worked on Broadway for many years, and his chiefest pleasure was and is girl dancers, which are quite a bunch. They have very short working lives, and lots of injuries. None the less, he found that everyone of them who had had an abortion regretted it, and I believe he was working with a large sample.

Based on the people I know who support it, I would say that I would have been happier if their parents had been able to avail themselves of it.

Lastly, people should count the costs, and remember the burdens that their coercion puts on others. For the lifers, I would ask if they personally would taken in a child that their laws would save.

William Eaton on November 5, 2012 at 9:40 PM

There are no health or life of the mother situations where putting a hole in the skull of a viable baby would benefit her. None. In fact I can think of several where that is extremely dangerous to the mother. If you know of one, please share it with us because I can’t think of one.

There might be situations where the baby is stuck in the birth canal and it would be iffy to allow the situation to continue, but even that wouldn’t be resolved by killing the child.

C-sections were named because even the ancients recognized there was a living child growing in the womb.
