It grieves my heart
Generation X aborted ping.
I'm not a "Reagan baby", but I did come of age in the Reagan Era, and it had a profound effect on my life and politics.
Well, I guess that makes me a 'Reagan Baby.' I'm not ashamed of that term in the least!
"Second, the pro-abortion constituency is aging rapidly. A comparison of membership lists between Planned Parenthood and the National Right to Life Federation reveals that the average pro-abortion activist is ten years older than the average pro-life activist. The face of the abortion industry in the twenty-first century is the rapidly aging 'liberated' radical."
Excellent! So, since these people believe in abortion on demand, they'll also be the FIRST to euthanize themselves when they all get very old and/or ill, right? That's a win-win. ;)
The flood of abortion since Roe has very odd cultural ramifications, while I am pro life, I can't help but take some stock in the notion that lower crime rates are due to increased abortion rates. Furthermore, it has increased the percentage of children being born into stable families which leads to the phenomenon discussed in this article.
The effects are very Malthusian, and that was the intent of the early abortion advocates.
Yes and this trend will continue. The left is killing its future one abortion at a time while conservatives are becoming better and better at passing on conservative viewpoints and family values. Modern liberalism is by definition an empty philosophy that only appeals to a very cynical narrow group of people. The only way that it can surive is through deception because it has so detached itself from its roots that its only way to gain vitality is through parasitism.
The mainstream liberalism of today is the impotent radicalism of the past which like a vampire can not see its own reflection. The fangs, the teeth, the gnashing and clawing persist as if by pure fear alone their goals can be won. It is this inability to see the monster in their ways that keeps them from enchanting anyone but children and the mentality and emotionally disturbed.
So a quarter of the younger generation was killed via abortion - and the survivors know it and take it seriously.
Just think of it this way: suppose that a woman was pregnant with identical twin girls, and she had one of them aborted. Would not the survivor be a daily reproach to her mother? Who would be able to bear it?
Likewise, forensic science is learning how to predict the appearance of a child who has been missing for years. Since we know that twins with identical DNA are hard to tell apart, it's obvious that the DNA essentially defines an individual's appearance. It follows that advances in computer modeling are likely in the future to reach the stage where it will be techically possible to present to a pregnant woman images not only a fetus' current state of development but images of the developing child's future appearance at any age - analogous to having photos of an identical twin whose sister was dispatched in utero.
Indeed, the technology would not likely be limited to flat 2-D images. How, exactly, does a woman opt to prevent the development of a child she has looked in the eye?
Technically, I'm a "Carter Baby" as I was born in Aug. 77. But I consider myself an adopted Reagan kid.
45 million divided by 34 years = 1,323,529 babies killed per year and still counting. Innocent, defenseless human beings snuffed out at the beginning of their lives. I fail to see how some consider this a good thing.
I'm a Reagan baby, even though the first six months of my life Carter was President. But I cried most of that time, lest any doubt my allegiance.
First, it's a Zogby poll. Second, most pollsters consider anyone who believes an abortion should be legal for any reason (rape, incest, protect life of mother) are pro-choice. Conversely, when they are talking about politicians, they believe that anyone who believes there should be any restrictions on abortion is "anti-choice." Therefore, if a politician believes that minors shouldn't be able to get an abortion without parental consent, they are "anti-choice", but a citizen who believes abortions should only be available for medical reasons is pro-choice. They do this to push the most radical abortion viewpoints among politicians, while trying to convince people that most Americans support abortion on demand.

With Sunday January 22nd being the 33rd anniversary of the human holocaust that we have wrought with Roe v Wade, this list may be higher volume than usual...

Reagan generation bttt! I think that being raised during the Reagan presidency always made me very interested in all things soviet, and also gave me eternal optimism about this country. Nothing we can't do if we all work together.
