Skip to comments.Move on from abortion? Not on your life!
Posted on 04/20/2007 9:51:11 AM PDT by Jim Robinson
I hate to say it again, but guess it has to be said:
Free Republic is a conservative site.
As a conservative site, we are pro-God, pro-life, pro-family, pro-liberty, pro-America.
Like-minded folks know immediately what this means and why we will never "move on from abortion" as Rudy Giuliani and his supporters ask us to do.
Think about it.
You might as well be asking us to deny God. To deny the Creator that gave us life and liberty. To give up our children. To surrender our country to the left. To give up our freedom. To give up our faith and our belief in God's Word.
Why insult us like this?
IMHO, the root difference between conservatism and liberalism IS our belief in God. For the most part, we conservatives defend our Christian/Judeo founding and our God-centered traditional American society and family values system, and the belief that our most fundamental rights were bestowed upon us by our Creator. Rights given by man can be taken by man. Rights bestowed by God are unalienable rights.
Liberals, on the other hand, especially the Marxist/socialist liberal leadership and the big leftist feminist, homosexualist, abortionist, anti-religion organizations deny God exists. They deny our Christian/Judeo heritage, work overtime to destroy our traditional family values, and seek to destroy our freedoms, including, and especially our right to the free exercise of religion.
Our deeply rooted conservative belief in God and refusal to roll over for feminism, abortionism, homosexualism, socialism, etc., is the only thing stopping the left from completely overwhelming us with their godless, socialist perversions and completely wiping out our traditional Christian/Judeo God-centered free society.
If we cave-in to the left by nominating a supporter of abortion rights, gay rights, gun control, illegal aliens, etc., as our candidate for the presidency and de facto leader of the Republican party, then we will have destroyed our own pro-God, pro-life, pro-family, pro-liberty movement and will have destroyed all of our prior pro-life, pro family, pro-liberty work. The Republican party will have made itself a joke. It'll be left standing for nothing. Worse, it'll be left standing with NARAL, NOW, the ACLU, and every other feminist/homosexualist Marxist/socialist communist group.
Surrender to the abortionists? Not on your life!
This is Free Republic. We ARE the dissent! We fight for life and liberty! We fight for our traditional American family values! We proudly and diligently defend our Christian/Judeo heritage, our country, our constitution, and our right to be free and to freely worship our God!
IMHO, those of you who cannot or will not understand these simple truths will never understand what FR is all about, what the pro-life movement is all about, what conservatism is all about, or even what freedom is all about.
Amen and thank you.
Clear and eloquent. I wonder what their response will be? Probably another poll.
Thank you for defending preborn babies. God bless you.
Holding off on backing a candidate till at least early '08...
Amen... you unappeasable purist, you.
I agree. It’s sad that the Giuliani supporters are willing to sacrifice everything that we stand for in the name of promoting their “electable” candidate.
Support the REAL conservative in this race: Duncan Hunter
Title: To implement equal protection under the 14th article of amendment to the Constitution for the right to life of each born and preborn human person.
Sponsor: Rep Hunter, Duncan [CA-52] (introduced 1/22/2007)
Latest Major Action: 3/1/2007 Referred to House subcommittee. Status: Referred to the Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights, and Civil Liberties.
I would like to propose a moratorium on the posting of (non FR) poll results here until after 1/1/08.
BTTT! Right On!
How about we ‘move on’ from Republican pro-abortionists?
I can't see all the support for Rootie, he's just fine with abortion.
you must be part of some hunter or thompson conspiracy...think about it.....Fred Thompson plays ‘Jim Robinson’ in Barbarians at the Gate, coincidence? I THINK NOT!! They are the same person! </tinfoil>
..maybe I just need more coffee.
Thanks for the write up JR, you’re right on.
Thanks Jim. Well said.
It's wonderful not only to hear someone say it, but that we are still able to do so. Thank you, Jim.
My real thought is that if there are some 55 million abortions annually worldwide and 35 million in the U.S. alone, what does that say about women anyway?
Whatever happened to moms and apple pie? When did so many get to be murderers?
Oh, wait. These are the women who dont think unborn babies are real live human beings!
How come we, as a nation, are outraged when one gunman kills 32 people, and we arent outraged when 55 million women kill unwanted babies?
Whats wrong with this picture?
Hey, people. Wake up. God is watching! This is the same God who lifted up an entire island in the Solomon Islands during the last earthquake. The island rose ten feet. Do you have any idea how much power that took?
Its absolutely time for all of us to start being good. Dont know what that means? Get ahold of a copy of the Ten Commandments. And be quick about it.
Spot on! Thanks!
1. Where do our rights come from?
2. What is the purpose of government?
You'll get all kinds of answers. Rights are granted by the government, the Constitution, the Supreme Court...
Government exists to protect people, to enforce laws, to grant rights, to collect taxes...
Then tell them the answers.
1. WE hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights...
2.That to secure these Rights, Governments are instituted among Men...
Personally, I thing the Rudybots here support him primarily for his abortion stance.
“We supported your Republican anti-abortion candidates for the last 30 years. It’s time you support someone from our side.”
Old Church ladies say Thank You!
Nice rant. Are you telling me to ignore the polls?
Thank you, Jim. You make me proud to be a member of FR.
Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!!!
But... but .... but... you’re supposed to be REASONABLE. You are not supposed to be so UNREASONABLE. You are supposed to have an OPEN MIND and quietly listen to and give in to all the log winded explanations about how only Rudy can beat Hitlery and how he’s recently had a change of heart on so many things and will act as a conservatvie as president and he won’t appoint pro-abortion judges, or sign gun bans and National Healthcare Rationing legislation.
Thank God you are unreasonable about the important things. People have accused me of being unreasonable too. I wear it as a badge of honor.
It’s been a while and I’m surprised that no one has accused you of wanting Hitlery to win. That should be coming soon.
And see tagline.
Thank you, Jim.
Even if not all conservatives can understand the importance of the right to life, they MUST understand how important it is to their fellow conservatives. There can be no compromise on the inalienable right to life.
If our fellow conservatives want other things more, like spending cuts or immigration reform (real reform), then they need to support us on this so we can support them on those issues, which most of us believe in too. The right to life is the bottom line. Unless we support it the conservative coalition will destroy itself and give the country back to Democrat rule.
There can be no compromise on killing innocent babies or cutting them up for cells and body parts. That should be obvious enough, but if it’s not, people should remember that it was Roe v. Wade, more than any other single decision of SCOTUS, that destroyed the rule of law under our Constitution. Without the rule of law and the constitutional guarantee of freedom and basic rights, what do we have left? Tyranny by a self-anointed elite.
Uh...all the polls showing Rudy leading? You’ve seen them haven’t you?
Surely you know that war is already lost... we just need to set a surrend... er... withdrawal date at this point. </ScumbagReid>
Thank you Mr. Robinson. There have been so many posts by those defending Rudy’s argument on the morality of abortion (personally against it blah-blah-blah), but no matter what conditions or circumstances, to take the life of an unborn child is always murder and a direct transgression against the fifth commenadment, “You shall not kill.”
"Rights given by man can be taken by man. Rights bestowed by God are unalienable rights."
A great truth. Beautifully written essay, Jim. I remember that Source of rights on those occasions when I discuss abortion killing with the few who invariably show up on this conservative forum to try to rationalize the murder of the innocent. God knows why they show up here to do so - there's certainly nothing conservative about willful and deliberate baby killing - but as long as they do I'm sure there will continue to be as there has been in the past many, many articulate and rational defenders of life here to rebut pro-abortion sophistry and evil.
Thank you for what you do to support our God-given rights.
