Life Liberty and the Pursuit of Abortion ^ | Jul 08,2005 | Steve Bowers

Posted on 07/08/2005 9:18:44 PM PDT by bitt

It's a little known fact that George Washington and James Madison really decided to fight for our independence so that Martha and Dolly could get abortions. So little known, in fact, that John Kerry and the brainiacs who do his email updates are the only ones who knew it. What other conclusion could you draw from the text of this email sent out by John Kerry on, of all of the 364 other days it could have been sent in 2005, Independence Day?:

Subject: 4th of July, 5-4, and the fight for freedom:

"Dear Steve,

The Fourth of July is a time for family, fun and fireworks.

But something happened today that ought to remind everyone what this holiday really symbolizes -- the freedom that makes America great.

That's exactly what hangs in the balance now that Sandra Day O'Connor has resigned from the Supreme Court.

This is no small deal. Over and over, she was the Justice who cast the critical vote in 5-4 cases deciding the most important issues in our nation.

Here's our bottom line for the community heading into the holiday weekend: we can never let her be replaced by a Justice who does not respect the right to privacy and Roe v. Wade, and who doesn't understand the freedoms protected in our Constitution.

So, this weekend, as you enjoy the Fourth -- take a minute to think about what it means."

Forget for the moment the liberal Supreme Court hysteria and focus on the larger "fight for freedom" message.

First of all, I don't need these bimbos to remind me to "think about what (Independence Day) means". I'm a conservative. I go out and live it every day. Monday, on my 700-mile drive home from my weekend in the Rocky Mountain states, I had plenty of time to reflect on this great, vast country where I'm free to drive hundreds of miles through the glorious and ever-changing countryside on a high-speed interstate highway in a nice vehicle that I bought with money earned by putting my skills to use for an employer in a free marketplace. I thought about the genius and vision it took the founding fathers to conceive of, write and execute the Declaration of Independence and Our Constitution -- the documents that gave birth to what has grown in a mere 229 years to be the greatest, most free and powerful country the world has ever seen. And, most importantly, I think about those brave men and women down through those 229 years who loved our country, our freedom and their fellow Americans enough to put their lives on the line -- millions of them giving the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. As I wrapped up my Fourth of July holiday weekend, I thought about the brave soldiers who, even as I sped in comfort and security back home on Interstate 80, were putting their lives on the line to preserve for all of us the right to live free. As we drove through Omaha, Nebraska at dusk and the interstate was ringed all around by fireworks as far as you could see, I knew that I was joined in celebrating the 229th anniversary of our country's independence by millions of Americans who were equally grateful for the sacrifices made down through the years and today to keep this forever the land of the free and the home of the brave! These were my thoughts about "the fight for freedom" and what it means on Independence Day 2005.

What were the thoughts of the Democrats' former lead jackass in the 2004 presidential contest -- the guy who they hoped would now be sitting in the White House -- on the same topic? Well, it's quite obvious that John Kerry's "fight for freedom" doesn't mean thinking about the genius of the founding fathers. It doesn't mean thanking them and God (!!!)for the fact that he is able to freely traverse the greatest country in the world in his sugar mama's gold plated Gulf V that she bought with her dead husband's hard earned money. It doesn't mean being grateful for the sacrifice thousands of young men and women are making to preserve our freedom from the tyranny of terrorism. No, it doesn't mean any of these things. For John Kerry, "the fight for freedom" means finding some non-existent "right to privacy" that enables women to kill their inconvenient babies. This was John Kerry's Independence Day thought to all of his faithful liberal flock: Freedom means being able to kill your baby.

And don't think John Kerry is alone. Just look at the leadership of the Democratic Party -- those standard bearers who may be stepping up to the plate for the Democrats in the 2008 presidential contest (Hillary included). They hate the fight for freedom in Afghanistan and Iraq and seek to sabotage this effort at every turn. They heap scorn on patriotism and patriotic acts even as they make apologies for America's enemy "allies" -- France, Russia, Germany, the United Nations et al. After all who are we to judge whether or not our aims in the fight for freedom are nobler than those of the terrorists? We're no better than Hitler or Pol Pot some of them say. They have an open contempt for the free expression of religion and the rich religious traditions exemplified by our nation's heritage -- unless, of course, the religion is Islam. Their ideas of "the fight for freedom" encompass sycophantic and self-serving notions such and aborting your baby, marrying someone of your own sex or providing all of us crappy cradle to grave health care and a lousy Social Security check and free prescription drugs in our declining years. And these folks, with their twisted notions of freedom that are 180 degrees out of phase with the majority of freedom-loving Americans, hope that we'll decide to put them in the White House three years from now. Before they do this -- maybe even before they hit the campaign trail in 2006 -- I think they should ditch the jackass (or is that a donkey?) as their party symbol and adopt one that more accurately represents their ideology to the American people -- a little truth in advertising if you will: A blood-red flag with a large picture of an aborted fetus emblazoned right in the middle with the motto "in abortions we trust" in bold letters underneath.

My read of the article is forthcoming, but the title "Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Abortion" contains a self-contradiction. Can you spot it?

There is a reason the DemocRATs and libs are so supportive of abortion "rights." They think that by exaggerating the importance of the "right" to an abortion, we won't notice when all of our real rights are stripped from us.

It should read: Death, and the freedom to pursue it...

"Life, and Death" could be the article's name.

30 Million

American babies aborted since Roe v Wade.

I've seen figures as high as 45 million. At any rate, it dwarves the number of victims of Hitler and exceeds even those of Stalin. Think about that next time someone compares our pro-life president to Hitler.

Very, very well written piece by the way.

He who does not fear Hell will spend eternity in full consciousness of what he did to deserve it.

They will also have time to consider how the imposition of their religious views on their victims carried far greater effect (to wit, death) than the imposition of the views of those they decried (responsibility).

A new day is dawning though. The massive silence on the "other side" of this issue - the babies killed by abortion - is slowly being breached. More people are seeing that it's not just an "unviable mass of tissue" being ripped out limb-by-limb, but a living, moving human being. The facts are out there for any who care to know the truth.

Baby at 7 weeks, slightly before the point at which most abortions are performed.

Unviable mass of tissue? You be the judge.

This is what I came up with for a T-Shirt to make people think. At least I hope it will make people think.

Yes! The backlash is growing daily. Here's a link to The Awareness Project. They dare to show pictures of aborted babies to shame the participants.

As you can imagine, the evil side is willing to do almost anythingto get these pictures out of sight. Their little demons become very active when their dark deeds are brought into the daylight.

I am quite aware of this work and have contributed in the past, and will do so again soon. Great educational campaign and work they are doing.

My tagline contains a link to an offshoot of that work, spearheaded by Michael Spielman. Check it out if you haven't.
