Sex and the City Actress Cynthia Nixon Promotes Taxpayer-Funded Abortions
Life News ^ | 12/22/09 | Steven Ertelt

Posted on 12/22/2009 4:08:02 PM PST by wagglebee

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- The Hollywood elite and abortion promotion have long been synonymous but Sex and the City actress Cynthia Nixon is quickly becoming one of the leading pro-abortion voices in Tinseltown. Nixon followed up her Planned Parenthood fundraising letter earlier this year by wading into the health care debate.

Nixon is joining abortion advocates who want to ensure taxpayer funding of abortion remains in the Senate government-run health care bill.

Just one week after returning to the United States from filming the sequel to the popular television franchise's first feature film, Nixon is bashing a congressman's ban on abortion funding that made it in the House bill.

She explained to CNN why she "can't keep quiet" about promoting abortions -- at taxpayer expense.

"It's a very basic female right that we need to protect," Nixon said. "What's so frightening about this Stupak ban is that he's found a backdoor way to basically not cover abortion for the vast majority of American women."

In the CNN interview, Nixon, who plays the character Miranda on Sex and the City, talked about her decades-long abortion activism and said it stemmed from personal reasons.

"I've been involved since I was 15, so we're talking almost 30 years now," she said.

"My mother had an illegal abortion pre-1973, and it's something that I would never want to face or want my daughter to be facing or any of her friends. Abortion is a right I feel must not go away, and I feel like people aren't mobilizing so much because it's so complicated and it's difficult to understand," she said.

Nixon called "patently false" the explanation that the Stupak amendment keeps the current federal law against abortion funding in place and said abortions should be "covered as a complete given" and called abortion "a major component of women's health care."

The actress also has advice for a pro-abortion movement increasingly on the defense and on the outs with more Americans -- as polls show a majority of Americans are pro-life and even larger portions oppose abortion funding in health care.

"I think we can continue to tell stories about backstreet abortions and how horrible they are. The idea of making access to safe abortions harder and more expensive and more difficult, having to travel across state lines -- that puts women's health and lives in jeopardy," Nixon claimed to CNN.

Nixon also has nothing good to say about pro-life advocates.

"The people who concern me the most are the people who want to illegalize abortion," she said.

Nixon's character in Sex and the City faced the decision of having an abortion ultimately to come away keeping her baby, with whom she develops a real fondness. Still, the episode only emboldened Nixon's pro-abortion views, according to the CNN interview.

"The message was choice. Miranda is a fighter. If she had to fight to get to that abortion, if there were forces working against her, she would have fought and fought and fought to get there and she might not have stopped to think," she said.

"But she was able to sit there in that doctor's office, about to go have an abortion with the support of her friends, and think to herself," she added.

Nixon appears to understand her comments cold lose her supporters in movie-land.

"Abortion is a hard thing for Hollywood to deal with because it is so controversial and you don't want to alienate half your audience by sending one message or the other," she tells CNN.

"My mother had an illegal abortion pre-1973, and it's something that I would never want to face or want my daughter to be facing

So which part bothered her? The "illegal" part, or the part where she had to pay for it?

Or the "abortion" part?

Since its legal now, and she's still up in arms, it must just be the "having to pay for it" part.

Sadly, the world would have been much better off if all the mothers of today's baby murdering advocates had chosen to murder their children.

Stop lying, you filthy slut! Nobody ever had an abortion performed in a back alley-that’s a lie promulgated by the baby-murder lobby. Those seeking an illegal abortion would enter a doctor’s office after hours via the back door which often faced an alley. Abortions were then as now, performed by the dregs of the medical profession.

Lets give the poor gal some credit. Before she went lesbo -——>>>>

Nixon has two children, daughter Samantha (b. 1995) and son Charles Ezekiel (b. 2001),[7] with Danny Mozes, an English professor, with whom she was in a relationship from 1988 to 2003.[8][9]

Let's replace some of the above with the following:

"I think we can continue to tell stories about bank robberies and how horrible they are. The idea of making access to the bank's money more difficult -- that puts customer's lives in jeopardy. Therefore I am for safer bank robberies".

Is this evil woman not bothered that her mother killed her sibling?

Cynthia is part of the chaff. She won’t know it until it is too late.

Luke 3:17 “His winnowing fan is in His hand, and He will clear His threshing floor. The wheat He will gather into the granary, while the chaff He will burn with unquenchable fire.”

This entire tirade is coming from Nixon- an avowed Lesbian.

Hard to get knocked up when you are swapping spit with another woman.... She is clueless.

Exactly! Cynthia, you’re an advocate of murder! My two sisters both went through very difficult pregnancies including one of them having a miscarriage. Thank God they didn’t ‘’choose’’ abortion.(they wouldn’t have anyway) Today I have three very strong, handsome, intelligent nephews and two beautiful young nieces, one of whom is soon to graduate from Penn. State. Screw you Cynthia Nixon.

What the pro-Abortion crowd really hates is for anyone to tell them there is right & wrong, that wanton promiscuity is wrong, that a pregnant woman is not holding a glob of gook in her belly, but a growing baby. Can’t believe that Cynthia really thinks she has taken a risky stand in Hollywood. With whom? Names, please.

Cynthia Nixon is a Lesbian. What’s it to her?

She is, after all, an actress which means she has the reasoning abilities of a 15 year old. She might not know how babies are made.

When I see the comments from this mentally challenged hollywood actress I reflect on the statement made by Patricia Heaton “As a Christian, it will not be Barbra Streisand I’m standing in front of when I have to make an accounting of my life”. Cynthia will one day stand in front of God and have to defend her remarks.

"It's a very basic female right that we need to protect," Nixon said.

Stopping the murder by abortion of their pre-born baby daughters and sons is the most fundamental right of men.
