Quotes of the day

posted at 10:31 pm on January 22, 2013 by Allahpundit

On the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, we reaffirm its historic commitment to protect the health and reproductive freedom of women across this country and stand by its guiding principle: that government should not intrude on our most private family matters, and women should be able to make their own choices about their bodies and their health care. Today and every day, my Administration continues our efforts to reduce unintended pregnancies, support maternal and child health, and minimize the need for abortion. On this anniversary, we recommit ourselves to supporting women and families in the choices they make and redouble our efforts to promote safe and healthy communities.

“The front lines of defending those rights are really in the state capitols, while there’s a bit of a stalemate on reproductive issues at the federal level,” said Anna Scholl, director of ProgressVA, which opposed Virginia’s widely publicized new law requiring women seeking abortions to undergo ultrasound exams. “The states are where the decisions that affect women, the soccer moms in the suburbs, are really happening.”…

While the antiabortion bills passed in Virginia grabbed the biggest headlines in 2012, 18 states restricted access to abortion services last year, according to the Guttmacher Institute. Arizona led the charge with seven antiabortion bills, while Kansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, South Dakota, and Wisconsin each enacted at least three measures.

In a sign that NARAL Pro-Choice America may be taking a more aggressive stance, the national abortion-rights group recently announced that its new president will be Ilyse Hogue, a former leader of MoveOn.org, a liberal advocacy group known for in-your-face tactics. “This is a critical moment to engage a new general of young people in the conversation about what choice means in a modern age,” Hogue said in a written statement.

***

The pro-choice movement has good reason for pessimism. These articles show that pro-lifers have developed some legislative strategies that have been quietly effective at lowering the incidence of abortion. More important, pro-choice groups are publicly admitting that they are having trouble engaging young people. When NARAL president Nancy Keenan announced her resignation in May 2012, she expressed concern about an “intensity gap” among young people. Indeed, NARAL’s own survey data indicated that young pro-lifers seemed to see the abortion issue as more important than young supporters of legal abortion. Other survey data supports this: The General Social Survey (GSS) has been asking the same battery of question on the legality of abortion since the early 1970s. During the 1970s and 1980s, young adults were significantly more “pro-choice” than average. However, surveys taken between 2000 and 2006 show that the Millenials are actually the most pro-life demographic cohort. An additional survey taken by the Polling Company this summer found that young people often feel more comfortable restricting abortion in certain circumstances than older Americans do…

Of course, the 2012 election was a disappointment. However, as I often remind pro-lifers, electoral politics is important, but it is not the only game in town. The pro-life movement has become increasingly entrepreneurial, strategic, and innovative. And we have to work harder and smarter than our opponents. After all, the government does not pay us to protect unborn children. Similarly, we have little support from elite institutions in academia, the media, and the entertainment industry. Older initiatives such as sidewalk counseling, local pro-life chapters and crisis pregnancy centers continue to do invaluable work. However, newer outreach efforts including Students for Life of America (SFLA), the Silent No More Campaign, 40 Days for Life, and LiveAction films have already produced very impressive short-term results. Overall, it should come as no surprise that our opponents are concerned. And I have every confidence if we stay the course, victory will someday be ours.

Florida senator Marco Rubio marked the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade with the following statement:

Today marks the tragic anniversary of one of America’s most blatant instances of judicial activism that paved the way for the destruction of innocent unborn life. Since this decision, tens of millions of our nation’s unborn babies have been denied the chance to celebrate a birthday, begin kindergarten or go on to contribute their God-given talents to our world.

As a U.S. senator, I am privileged to serve in a position that allows me to fight for the lives of the unborn. I will continue to fulfill my duty to fight to reduce the number of abortions. As with many of our nation’s most important debates, the battlefield of this issue is in the hearts and minds of the American electorate, and I pray that we can one day live in a society that fully cherishes every life from conception until death.”

***

Members of the Congressional Pro-life Caucus on Tuesday marked the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade by highlighting the stories of women who regret their abortions.

“Women who have been so hurt by abortion [are] truly the untold story that needs to be told on Capitol Hill and everywhere else in the United States,” said the co-chair of the caucus, New Jersey Republican Rep. Chris Smith, who called the years since Roe v. Wade “40 years of government-sanctioned violence against women.”…

“Future generations will look back on America and wonder how and why such a seemingly enlightened society — so blessed and endowed with education, advanced science, information, wealth and opportunity — could have failed to protect the innocent and inconvenient,” Smith said. “They will wonder how and why a Nobel Peace Prize-winning president could have also simultaneously have been the abortion president.”

***

The hypocrisy of it all, however, is that while the President publicly acknowledges the value of “even one life” when it advances his own political agenda, he fails to acknowledge as much when it comes to protecting the lives of children soon to be born. In that same speech, he proclaimed that “when it comes to protecting the most vulnerable among us, we must act now.” Well, who is more vulnerable than those who find themselves at the mercy of others to honor their existence and receive them into our world? Are these—the truly vulnerable—not worthy of the protection of which the President speaks? Why is it that their cause is never the subject of one of his lofty addresses to the nation? Has he ever even mentioned the March for Life that takes place in his own back yard and ought to be worthy of at least a scant mention? If indeed we have an obligation to save “even one life,” when will we hear our President rally Americans to stand alongside women who find themselves in these less than ideal circumstances to offer the support they need, to encourage parents to choose life, and to promote the option of adoption? Instead, he has committed himself to the most liberal of abortion agendas—so much so that as a Senator he couldn’t even bring himself to support the Born Alive Act that would save the lives of babies ALREADY BORN and needing medical aid. Further, he believes taxpayers should betray their consciences by paying for his abortion agenda. This same President has stated he didn’t want his daughters “punished with a baby,” and remarked that it was “above my pay grade” to answer a pastor’s question: “At what point does a baby get human rights?” Yet now we are to somehow believe that children are the priority in his current aggressive campaign against the Second Amendment?

***

It’s natural to focus on events that have happened instead of those that haven’t, and on people we have interacted with as opposed to those we’ve never met. But today it seems worth reflecting on some of those people we haven’t met: the 54 million who have died in abortions in the past four decades.

It’s hard to mourn them because we know virtually nothing about them, except they once existed. So much of them remained potential. We don’t know how many of them would have been eager and well-behaved, and how many would been hellions, and how many would have been, like most of us as children, a mixture of earnest affection and efforts and tantrums. We don’t who of them would have been the clowns, mugging it up behind a teacher’s back. We don’t who of them would have been quiet dreamers, spending long hours staring at the clouds and thinking. We don’t know who of them would have been able to hit home runs, and who would have been able to do math equations in their head in the blink of an eye…

It’s curious to notice who isn’t there. But it’s even stranger that we spend so little time wondering who they – and we – would have been if they were still with us.

Obama: we recommit ourselves to supporting women and families in the choices they make and redouble our efforts to promote safe and healthy communities.
I don’t know what President Obama means by ‘safe and healthy communities,’ but those in which abortion is encouraged can hardly be considered healthy. Our population is not growing at a rate sufficient to maintain itself, because families and reproduction have been hampered by progressive propaganda and policies, including taxes, the welfare state, the declining status of marriage, the declining standards of education, increasing levels of permanent unemployment, etc. That is not a healthy national community or society.

There are some pro-life groups that are very much in your face. And I don’t mean by being violent, but by graphically depicting the violence done in the womb. One group was at PA Ave in D.C. yesterday, holding up posters as Obama went by. There seems to be a proliferation of young pro-lifers who go that route. Lila Rose is a high-profile example.

Of those voiceless babies
No ifs’ ands’ or maybes’
Is dedicated to spread the word
I know we have ‘heard’…
Fight the good fight INC!!

Fred stands up to the trolls
He is really quite bold!
He’ll tear them off a strip
He doesn’t give a ‘rip’
His mind is fertile ground
He knows no bounds!
Fred is a friend at HA in deed!

Never a word goes unbroken.
He can be quite funny
But he is always on the ‘money’…

Nite,once again:)

canopfor on January 23, 2013 at 2:03 AM

Many are not mine (poems) and I posted the authors…

Here is one:

In the world I long to be,

is magic, wonder, and fantasy.

Full of Dwarfs, Sprites, and Elves to see,

yes, that is the world for me.

In the thick forest you take the chance,

a beautiful Unicorn you may glance.

Flying high in the sky above your head,

my gosh, a Dragon, I thought they were dead.

On a clear night, lit by a full moon,

a wondrous Pegasus will be flying soon.

As tiny faeries flit about on wings,

the beautiful voice of the Sylph as she sings.

Up on a hill the majestic Castle stands,

there with her Wizard to protect the lands.

His magic is more powerful than,

any others in this land.

The Faeries, Elves,Dwarfs,and Sprites,

all know his magic is good and right.

His friends are the Unicorns and Pegasus, too.

On the back of a Dragon , he once flew.

His manner is friendly, yet at times stern.

His face is lined from all he has learned.

His eyes are as deep as the deepest well,

he has knowledge beyond comprehension, you can tell.

I dream of stepping out into a stream,

hoping to see something rarely seen.

The magical, mystical Unicorn pure and true,

Innocence is the only lure.

I would reach out to touch the velvet nose,

feeling the pure love surge clear to my toes.

The Faeries with their castles underground,

sing and dance round and round.

The Sylphs and Sprites blend into the trees,

the Elves and Dwarfs see to their needs.

Yes, I want to be where there are Dragons and Sprites,

Wizards, Elves, Faeries, and Dwarfs, that’s right.

Unicorns, Pegasus, Sylphs, oh what a life.

I’ll manage to get there one of these nights.

Scrumpy on January 23, 2013 at 2:04 AM

I’ll do them in 2 sections…

There is a lad named Sparky
He gets up to all kinds of malarkey
He’s a bit of a flirt
Will take off his shirt
Swims naked in the lake
And loves Camel Meal Tea
With two humps!

Then there is Schad
Also a bit of a lad
He is the magistrate
So he keeps us all straight
No breaking the rules
As his name implies, he garners
Great pleasure at others ‘demise’.

Our Moon Goddess is simply divine
She helps keep us sane in this time
Her heart overflows
Her music doth flow
She is witty and wise
Writes wonderful prose
Our Jackie is remarkable woman!

Axe is a whole ‘nother story
A gentleman, tho a tad hoary
Not in age, no, not at all
But in wisdom on whom it befalls
He’s quite magical you see
And in a second he may flee
With a *poof* he gone like a flash!

RWM is a warrior of words
She relishes her chance to cross swords
With a few of the resident trolls
Who poke around like moles
They don’t know what hit them
She knocks them about with a rhythm
Her words they cannot dispute!

MarshFox is Keeper of the Flame
He guards us well, he’s not tame
His armour of burnished gold
Lends a warm light in the cold
When firelit brightly
Which he tends to nightly
Our Warrior Knight to be sure.

KCB Ken is quite shy
But he is quick to let fly
With wit and succor and more
For those who are troubled, be sure
His words are kind and tender
His only to be a defender
Of souls troubled with strife.

Bmore is a master craftsman
Wondrous things this man can
Make with throwaway stuff
But it’s not enough
He is also learned and wise
Without any visible vise
He can bring such joy and pleasure.

Arnold keeps us all down to earth
His is one of humor and mirth
He doesn’t like bossy women
That’s a natural given
He is sweet and kind and dear
One needs to have him near
He’s our anchor here in the Glade.

KOOLAID2 has a serious side
That he does not hide!
He teases with Sparky
About his malarkey…
He is for that the law be upheld
He won’t sell out for gold
K2 is profound that I know!

Anti-Control has a dramatis personae
Surprise! Not yet a subpoena
He makes us think twice
Do we stay on topic and be nice?
His heart aches for a fish
Apparently she’s quite the dish
Methinks he’s really quite funny!

Mike_CA is a somewhat of a Joker
He likes to jab at folk with a poker
Not in any literal sense…
He just has this bent
For frivolity and laughter
It’s what he is after
We laugh at his antics for sure!

Scrumpy is a delightful sprite
Who will at times run from a ‘fight’
Her poems uplift I am sure
Those words can be a cure.
She tends to be a little niave…
But has that certain ‘qui vive’
Little passes by her un-noticed…

EG does not yet play in the Glade
He prefers to stay out of the shade.
Outspoken he is at times
Never one to belie his ‘rhyme’
Sincere is he thats for sure
His heart and soul are pure
One day he may join us in fun!

Cozmo, he is somewhat of a puzzle
He has a dear friend, he’d like to muzzle
It’s done all in good fun
Somewhere there is a pun!
Bunny suits are his weakspot
I gave it a shot!
Now I am done…

Scrumpy on January 23, 2013 at 2:06 AM

Our dear friend ALT, works so hard
She sometimes seems weird for a lark!
She now has a gun we are told
My my this Lady is bold!
Shoot true and shoot straight
To learn is never too late!
Keep Texas the land of the free!

AZfederalist is our man about God
All it takes is a wink and a nod
He sets the trolls straight
Quoting scripture out the gate!
Better watch out
And don’t you dare pout!
Az knows his stuff hereabouts!!

SW lives in the Wilderness
Of Mirrors no less!
He speaks the truth
He has much couth!
His passion knows no bounds
He is like a hound
Nose to the ground a huntin’

Dr. ZhivBlago makes no bones
About the truth, to be known.
Defender of the Constitution
Speaks hushed tones of ReVoLuTiOn!
The good Dr cures what ails us
By exposing the ruse
A goodly Sherriff of HA!

Bishop reigns supreme
Being first is his ‘meme’
Most of us defer to him
Not to do so would be a sin!
Full of vim and vigor
His place is ‘de rigeur’
All hail the Bish!

Kingsjester is no ones fool
His take is quite quite cool.
He knows thereof the plot
But Obama is what we got.
His words provide succor
With a touch of rancor.
Somthing we take not for granted!

PercyB is a Wordsmith
His poems are herewith
The best around.
He is unbound.
I wish he’d write more often
Ne’er to be forgotten.
Slay them with your pithy way!

CheshireCat keeps us grinning
This style is winning!
Likened to a Wonderland
The prose goes hand in hand
With Alice and the rest
It is the best!
Fits well within the Glade’n.

Canopfor stands tall in the frozen north
All linkys this man durst quoth!
He guards the rear
Not out of fear.
He’s resolute to defend
Right until the end
Everything America stands for!

22044 comes loaded for Bear
Seeking and finding with care
All things that make sense.
Tho sometimes takes license
To proclaim ideas have legs
Then speechless no less,
Searches for some commonsense.

Predator steals in on silent wings
His one liners have such a ‘zing’!
Always quick witted
He is so gifted.
So charming and delightful
His words tho can be frightful!
He searches out foes to defeat.

4Grace is graceful and serene
Nothing about her is mean.
Her faith is strong
She is far from wrong.
With God on her side
With Him she abides.
But she knows how rock the house!

INC is an angel in disguise

Absolutists? Is that a new Obama word? Did he use it at the inauguration. I haven’t read the text–only a few quotes.

Absolutist is kind of a silly-sounding word. It reminds me of a kid trying to call someone a name, but who can’t come up with anything.

Obama is the original Absolutist. He’s always absolutely sure he’s absolutely right about everything.

Thank you, thank you, Scrumpy! First for writing and then for re-posting them for us! You’re a gem!!

Obama is the original Absolutist. He’s always absolutely sure he’s absolutely right about everything.

Goodnight, good Scrumpy! Continued prayers for your health!

Just close your eyes think a thought and then write what you see!!

Scrumpy on January 23, 2013 at 2:13 AM

The only thing I see now is my nice warm bed.

Goodnight & God bless to INC, ALT and anyone else that is still here!

4Grace on January 23, 2013 at 2:24 AM

That reminds me. One of Obama’s favorite propaganda tricks is Name Calling:

Bad names have played a tremendously powerful role in the history of the world and in our own individual development. They have ruined reputations, stirred men and women to outstanding accomplishments, sent others to prison cells, and made men mad enough to enter battle and slaughter their fellowmen….

One of the most treacherous things about Name Calling is that bad names, like Glittering Generalities, are omnibus words. They are words that mean different things and have different emotional overtones for different people.

That’s from “The Fine Art Of Propaganda; A Study of Father Coughlin’s Speeches” by The Institute for Propaganda Analysis, Edited by Alfred McClung Lee & Elizabeth Briant Lee, and published in 1939.

The Institute was started in the 30′s out of concern over USSR and German propaganda. We’ve forgotten everything they wrote.

The only thing missing from that video was the slickster saying after his sardonic laugh,” Pleased to meet you; hope you guessed my name. What’s confusing you is the nature of my game.”

Cleombrotus on January 23, 2013 at 4:12 AM

[4] Ah, sinful nation,
a people laden with iniquity,
offspring of evildoers,
sons who deal corruptly!
They have forsaken the LORD,
they have despised the Holy One of Israel,
they are utterly estranged.
[5] Why will you still be smitten,
that you continue to rebel?
The whole head is sick,
and the whole heart faint.
[6] From the sole of the foot even to the head,
there is no soundness in it,
but bruises and sores
and bleeding wounds;
they are not pressed out, or bound up,
or softened with oil.
[7] Your country lies desolate,
your cities are burned with fire;
in your very presence
aliens devour your land;
it is desolate, as overthrown by aliens.
[8] And the daughter of Zion is left
like a booth in a vineyard,
like a lodge in a cucumber field,
like a besieged city.
[9] If the LORD of hosts
had not left us a few survivors,
we should have been like Sodom,
and become like Gomor’rah.
[10] Hear the word of the LORD,
you rulers of Sodom!
Give ear to the teaching of our God,
you people of Gomor’rah!
[11] “What to me is the multitude of your sacrifices?
says the LORD;
I have had enough of burnt offerings of rams
and the fat of fed beasts;
I do not delight in the blood of bulls,
or of lambs, or of he-goats.
[12] “When you come to appear before me,
who requires of you
this trampling of my courts?
[13] Bring no more vain offerings;
incense is an abomination to me.
New moon and sabbath and the calling of assemblies –
I cannot endure iniquity and solemn assembly.
[14] Your new moons and your appointed feasts
my soul hates;
they have become a burden to me,
I am weary of bearing them.
[15] When you spread forth your hands,
I will hide my eyes from you;
even though you make many prayers,
I will not listen;
your hands are full of blood. Isaiah 1:4-15

It’s interesting to note that, in ancient Israel, after they began sacrificing their children to the god Molech, God told Jeremiah 3 TIMES! “do not even pray for these people, for I do not hear you.” Jeremiah 7, 11, & 14.

Is it too fanciful to say that America, and the West in general, is under God’s judgement?

Cleombrotus on January 23, 2013 at 4:33 AM

good morning folks

burning question of the day….will hillary tell the truth during the benghazi hearings?

cmsinaz on January 23, 2013 at 5:37 AM

or perhaps, will hillary place all the blame at her feet and give dera leader a free pass?

more than likely…

cmsinaz on January 23, 2013 at 5:39 AM

@cmsinaz No, Hillary will NOT tell the truth. She’ll obfuscate, pretend that she doesn’t particularly recall, and try to turn the issue into a nothingburger. And the MSM will dutifully play along.

tommy71 on January 23, 2013 at 6:02 AM

the folks do not know that the senate hasn’t passed a budget in 1365 days
-norah on morning joe

well, ummm you could have reported it, ya think?

will the lsm now report about the missing budgets? probably not

cmsinaz on January 23, 2013 at 6:10 AM

tommy71 on January 23, 2013 at 6:02 AM

you’re right…no responsibility by the admin and the lsm will defend them…

*sigh*

cmsinaz on January 23, 2013 at 6:12 AM

The Hillary kabuki will play out and be forgotten in 2 days. Whats more worrying is that Reid wants an immediate deal on filibuster reform. In 24 hours is what he said. Or he’ll go in for the nuclear option. That would be catastrophic. I’d focus on that issue for today and tomm. If the nuclear option is exercised, it’ll significantly reduce the power of the minority and will impact our future legislative battles.

tommy71 on January 23, 2013 at 6:21 AM

Good morning, all. Not a word so far on Morning Joe about Hillary’s appearance in the spotlight later today. Maybe it’s not newsworthy?

Mornin’, y’all. “Obama: Abortion? “Good.” Gun Control? “It’s For the Chi.”ldren.” My take.

kingsjester on January 23, 2013 at 6:37 AM

Today marks the tragic anniversary of one of America’s most blatant instances of judicial activism that paved the way for the destruction of innocent unborn life. Since this decision, tens of millions of our nation’s unborn babies have been denied the chance to celebrate a birthday, begin kindergarten or go on to contribute their God-given talents to our world~Marco Rubio

How is abortion different in principle than the incident at Sandy Hook in Newtown, CT? And abortion advocates want to ban assault rifles even as they advocate the ritualistic killing of the truly inocent?

Behind the scenes, though, the new incarnation of OFA will undoubtedly diminish the DNC’s relevance and overshadow Wasserman Schultz.

Cleombrotus on January 23, 2013 at 4:33 AM

I’ve thought of that many times, especially the day after the election and again on Monday. Is Obama part of God’s judgement? A nation that turns its back on God cannot expect Him to bless and protect them. I pray for America every day, always for a revival. God may say yes, He may say no, and He may not even hear my prayers. Because I do not know which it will be, I continue to pray, trusting it is good for me, if nothing else.

Good post, KJ. I’m with you.

Naturally Curly on January 23, 2013 at 6:57 AM

I am pro-life. Pro-choice is a term that leftists hide behind. Being pro-choice means you think a woman has the right to make a choice between allowing her baby to survive full-term or to commit government-sanctioned murder.

Why am I pro-life? First, give me an example of anything that has a heartbeat and yet isn’t a living organism. Second, if you think the embryo/fetus is part of the woman’s body, why does it have DNA different than the mother’s DNA?

Pro-choice should mean that a woman has a choice of keeping and raising her baby or giving her baby up for adoption if she doesn’t want it, for whatever reason. That is a choice that relishes life.

justltl on January 23, 2013 at 7:25 AM

Greedy stupid women are not “punished” by live animal fetuses. They may not be able to do whatever the hell they want if they have to actually deal with the consequences of reproduction. To be pro-choice is about as base and selfish as one can get. Women avail themselves of their self-proclaimed right to abortion should be spayed on the spot as long as they are doing an invasive operation to kill a child. These women do not deserve to have children ever. No child deserves to have a “mother” with so little value for all life. They are not even deserving of being called human beings let alone mothers.

Similarly, if someone were to put down a sick dog the same way live-birth abortions are done, a criminal charge of animal cruelty could be brought.

An abortion itself sometimes results in permanent infertility. My former sister in law killed her baby at sixteen. When she married years later, she could not conceive. After years of trying and thousands of dollars spent on fertility doctors, she had to adopt to raise a family.

Liam on January 23, 2013 at 7:40 AM

Abortion is beyond hideous.

It’s time to divide the country.
Re-create America in one half.
Let the leftists/libs have whatever kind of hellish cesspool they desire in their half.

DevilsPrinciple on January 23, 2013 at 6:37 AM

It’s actually different in a couple key ways.

Abortion advocates insist that life doesn’t actually begin until the child crawls out of the womb and begins filing taxes and voting. Until that time, killing “it” is perfectly justified. They’ve spent a lot of time and effort spreading the propaganda that the so-called baby bump is nothing more than a collection of cells.

Secondly, abortion advocates and liberals in general have blinkers on when it comes to killings by ones and twos. Chicago had more fatalities than the troops in Afghanistan. Yet, since it was by ones and twos they ignore the reality of the situation.

Finally, and perhaps most importantly, the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary were propaganda fodder for those against the Second Amendment. Abortion advocates find their propaganda out of a few isolated cases of harm to abortion clinics and the butchers who perform abortions. I saw the story yesterday where the four “doctors” in America that are performing late-term abortions were lionized as brave heros. Well, Jack Kevorkian wasn’t treated so kindly and I see little difference. It is all in the propaganda.

Happy Nomad on January 23, 2013 at 7:47 AM

Liam on January 23, 2013 at 7:40 AM

That an abortion itself might result in infertility isn’t good enough. I want to make sure that any female who decides to get an abortion out of convenience forefits their maternal rights forever. I’m serious about that. Life is a gift and a woman that decides to kill a child doesn’t deserve another chance at motherhood.

I realize that the squishes on this site will find such a position harsh but I really don’t care. The feelings of those who opt to kill their children are not worthy of any consideration. A woman who goes to Planned Parenthood for a “procedure” is no different than Susan Smith or Casey Anthony (yeah, I know that she wasn’t convicted but that isn’t the final judgement on Caylee’s death).

I would argue we are already there.

The leftists have both coasts. They also have strongholds in the upper Midwest thanks to places like Madison WI and Minneapolis/St. Paul and the Hollywood types with “ranches” in Montana and Wyoming. Establish a liberal migratory zone along the Canadian border linking the two sides of liberal land (lets refer to them as Sodom and Gomorrah) and tell them to get the hell out of America.

Happy Nomad on January 23, 2013 at 8:17 AM

As someone who has divided feelings about this issue…
this is beyond sick.
Who ever said it above..show a video of a late term abortion
or a botched one with a baby dying in a closet..I guarantee that would change minds.
In my younger days..what it took for me to change my mind. I was horrified. I also was not aware at the time, this was even legal or happening!
The SO/Right-imo
needs to focus on this and the facts..stop with the rape screeching
and bs. Get down to the facts that I think the majority of people would be horrified over.
I do not believe the majority of people, if faced with the truth would go along.
Maybe I am wrong here..but in 2008- pro choice women I knew went apeshite when they heard the brief news blip about botched babies laying there dying.. they didn’t know.
They are letting the left control the debate..per usual.

bazil9 on January 23, 2013 at 8:20 AM

Ask them straight out-

Do you support letting a live baby die in a closet?
Do you support abortions by gender?
If we find a gay gene which can be detected in amnio, would you support aborting gay babies?

Ect Ect..not hard.
