Parents Say Clinic Did Secret Abortion on Daughter Without Consent

Atlanta, GA (LifeNews.com) -- Victory and Genevieve Patterson may have been able to help their daughter find an alternative to abortion, but they say the Northside Women's Clinic never gave them the chance. They sued the abortion business saying it broke Georgia law by doing an abortion on their daughter without their knowledge or consent.

If FOCA passes, not only will parents not have standing for a suit like this, it will be the law of the land.

I am trying to get my liberal friends who are parents to under stand the broad reaching impact FOCA will have on parenting.

Sad. My boys were raised, understanding that if they got a girl pregnant they were expected to marry her and give their child a name.

FOCA will soon pass. This will destroy everyone, not just the unborn. It will destroy the very core of human relations: the family. Our nation will not survive very long unless by some miracle the conservatives get control of the media propaganda machine and spend the next 40 years reversing the psychological damage.

There is only a fool’s hope for this country and for the world.

That’s what my brother did and almost everything is working out wonderfully. There are no bad feelings in our family.

An abortion does nothing but destroy an innocent life, destroys families, and causes the mother to lapse into a dark and brooding depression. Even those mothers who are convinced that abortion is just the removal of tissue are no exception. They might walk by a school or playground and wonder what that “tissue” would look like today if they didn’t go through with the abortion. Perhaps they did it out of fear or a personal financial crisis that has now passed and they are left with one less good thing in their lives. Worse yet, they spend the rest of their lives never knowing the pride and joy that comes with selflessness and virtue.

Oh, no, they hide it well. Kids are very good at hiding stuff. Just think of all the kids that are raging alcoholics or drug addicts before the parents suspect. My cousin was six months pregnant before her mother found out.

A lot of young girls, first time pregnancies, don’t show until being well advanced. Usually it’s some weird thing that gives stuff away, like money missing.

America will survive FOCA, but the leiite leftist unborn children that will be murdered will not fair too well.

This is no a lost cause IMHO.

So I accept the fact that the commies are going to kill their own.

So what.

In some ways it’s better for an innocent, beautiful child to perish in the womb than to grow up to be an abomination. It’s still a horrible tragedy when the leftists kill children but in some ways it could be worse.

It would be far better yet to not be conceived at all.

I agree. It is sad indeed. The left has no respect for life.

I have decided it is no longer my fight. There are going to be bigger fish to fry. Just trying to prevent the re-education camps and national police force.

My boys were raised to keep it zipped until after they walked down the aisle...

And were ready to provide for:

(1) Spiritual and Moral Leadership in their home-
...Partnering with God and their spouse...

(2) Housing...

(3) Food...

(4) Transportation... and...

(5) Medical care...

...For themselves and their wedded wife--
And at least one KID that would be there sooner than they ever imagined!

They were also taught that conceiving and bringing forth a precious child is signing up for 18-20 years hard labor....

Kingdom math: 1 + 1 = 3

The problem is that liberals are immoral at their core. The basis of their very belief system is that it is okay to steal earnings from one group to give to another group without the consent of the first group.

With that as their basis the rest of the tree is corrupt.

The ones that don’t believe in God, Jung said they constellate the God complex within. Meaning they become in their own mind the highest source of what is moral.

This creates subjective morality. So killing millions is okay to institute socialism becasue you have already made the leap that it is okay to kill the unborn.

With this in mind, Obama cannot love anyone or anything.

A person who candisconnect from their core self and allow for a baby to die unattended after being born alive at a botched abortion is a person who is capible of killing twn thousand people without even batting an eye, twitch.

Our country is in for some very intersesing times as the left drains our wealth and re-distributes it around the world to all the other leftist thugs.

And mostly Americans will do nothing.

WHo is John Galt? I feel I am living in a novel.

Everything is in place for the rise of tyranny and fascism in this country. The dems accuse us of being fascist for not supporting silly things like gay marriage. However, history is on the side of our argument. For example, everything that led to the rise of Hitler and the Nazi party has ALREADY happened in this country. Fortunately, the founding fathers gave us a final safeguard against tyranny in the form of the US constitution. If the socialists are allowed to abolish, marginalize, or simply override this document, the entirety of the free world will fall.

We will see an age of inhumanity, cruelty, and murder so terrible that it will dwarf the sum of human history in its barbarity.

Whille I agree with your post I think we are past the point of the US Constitution saving us unless SCOTUS grows some onions.

But the founders did give us a remedy to our problem, The Declaration of Independance coupled with the second amendment.

“The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to possess arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed the subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing. Indeed, I would go so far as to say that the supply of arms to the underdogs is a sine qua non for the overthrow of any sovereignty.” -Adolf Hitler

Most liberals have never read anything by Adolf so they cannot understand the OBVIOUS importance of citizens bearing arms.

*****************************************************
FOCA will be the abortion industries cash cow for years to come (and will be a font of $$$ for pro-death politicians) ,,, what could be better than running a business shrouded in official gov’t secrecy where you can simply apply for taxpayer funds whenever you claim to do an abortion on someone with no $$$ ,,, these people are amoral as is ,, the temptation to invent customers on paper for the easy cash will be irresistable...

Well, you can’t blame the baby for mommy being a commie.

Sometimes the kid turns out all right.

David Horowitz, for example.

Most do not realize that NAZI Germany was a socialist country. National Socialist Workers Party if I recall.

And Hitler had three SS NAZI divisions made up of Muslims to execute the final solution in the Balkins.

We are standing at the abyss, people will read of our actions for generations. Did we preserve liberty at the ‘Hot Gate’ or fail to stand?

I agree on what it means to abortion in the US. I think it also will be the vehicle to totally undermine parental authority in general. A wall of privacy will be built between parents and children to prevent the parents for gaining knowledge of a child's health issues, since they could include reproductive issues. All to ensure that a parent will not have a chance to interfere with the child's decisions.

*******************************************
They’ve been working for years to erect that wall and use the children against the parents with such things as “turning them in” to the teacher if they smoke in the house or having doctors asking if the parents own a firearm... We’re becoming Cuba at a furious pace... When will enough people wake up so we can throw this all back...
