Native Texan and Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards raised eyebrows Friday, February 28, 2014 by claiming there was no relevance in arguing when life beginsthe same day the organization launched its national Women are Watching campaign. Fusion host Jorge Ramos tried to pin down the daughter of former Texas Governor Ann Richards on Friday, Why would you think it would be so controversial for you to say when do you think life starts? Richards immediately balked by questioning whether the issue was controversial at all and argued the relevancy of the matter wholesale. Prominent pro-life voices were quick to offer reactions to Breitbart Texas on the matter. Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser expressed outrage: Cecile Richards comments were insensitive and unfeeling to any woman who has ever been pregnant, especially those women who have suffered the pain of miscarriage. During the Ramos interview, Richards attempted to reframe the matter by arguing that I think every woman has to make her own decision, and restated the goal of making sure women are apprised of all their options. Dannenfelser countered: This is an example of the problem of getting so wrapped up in the politics of reproductive choice, that the real experience of pregnant women becomes secondary. Richards statement misses what most Americans understand about pregnancy, especially women. There are two human beings involved. Cecile Richards arguably shocking statement was not without proper political timing. Earlier in the day, Planned Parenthoods political arm announced its intentions to heavily influence 2014 U.S. Senate and gubernatorial battles in North Carolina, Montana, Alaska, Florida, Texas and Pennsylvania. Texas Senator Wendy Davis is likely to benefit considerably from Planned Parenthoods campaign expenditures, given strong public relations support in the past.

(Correction)These people are sick individuals.
In other words, murdering another person at any point isnot immoral.
Well, not if they are black. (/Sanger)
We have no choice to do with our bodies as we want.
We must bake.
Amen!These people are severely sick.
These people believe in DEATH
More specifically, murder.
Based on President Cecile Richards beliefs, I guess if someone shot him their defense could be, “No your honor it was a late term abortion.”
Right on! It's a human BABY the instant that the mama DNA and the papa DNA fuse together and become a human expressing itself to life. No God, no trimester bull$hit just life and reality and actuality.
That's pretty much what 'partial birth' abortions are. The baby is born but they only let the head emerge and then the vicious unfeeling bastids stick a pair of scissors through it's head.
Hence, 'partial' birth abortions.
I am relieved to now know that Mizz Richards must think that life begins at birth; thus what some folks think is a human child carried in the womb is apparently a mass of fat and tissue that is “miraculously” turned into a living person during its journey through a woman’s birth canal.
(please note the above is said with 300% sarcasm and distain for Mizzz Richards)
Can someone then just end her life and argue that either a) it hadn’t yet begun or b) her life went on past its limit?
that’s why we refer to them as the culture of death.
They might as well just admit that they are murdering human babies.
Sometime, in the not too distant future, people are going to look at our era and say, “And they killed their babies too!”
That is,,, if we actually have a future!
So then yours can be ended since you don’t know when yours started.
Did you read that article that was here in the last day or two that it's like 2/3 of black babies that are getting aborted, then hispanics then whites at the bottom of the list.
Guess I shouldn't be surprised. Dems aborting Dems.
More black babies being aborted in NYC then born. But that’s another matter for discussion!
Does Cecile Richards' life matter?
[insert Philip K. Dick reference here]
In a sick and twisted way, she’s right. Once you accept the notion that murder at any stage of fetal development is okay, the start of life really is irrelevant. In effect, she says, “We don’t care when life begins because we’re going to end it any damn time we want.”
A child’s life and a mother’s pregnancy begins at conception. The pregnancy consists of the embryonic and fetal stages of the unborn child’s development. Abortion is defined as the deliberate termination of a human pregnancy. The “deliberate termination” is accomplished by killing the unborn child. Murder is defined as the unlawful, premeditated killing of one human being by another. Abortion avoids the murder charge simply because judges and courts have deemed it lawful.
