‘Jane Roe’ To Nancy Pelosi: 'Don’t Put Abortion in Heath-Care Reform Bill’

(CNSNews.com) - Norma McCorvey, the “Jane Roe” of the infamous 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion on demand in the United States, protested the health-care reform bill on Capitol Hill Tuesday because it proposes federal funding for abortions.

“No abortion is to be paid for with tax-funded dollars,” McCorvey, now a pro-life activist, told CNSNews.com after the protest. “It’s against the laws of God. Roe versus Wade is a bad law and I’m sorry that I ever did it.”

McCorvey, joined dozens of other protestors in the office of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) to speak out against the legislation, which currently involves using taxpayer dollars to fund abortions.

Pelosi was not in her office at the designated time of the protest, but her staff was prepared to meet the protestors when they arrived.

Also among the protestors was Olga Fairfax of National Right to Life and Human Life International. Fairfax said she sees the pro-life movement as her war against the modern-day Holocaust.

“I’ve been in this war 35 years,” Fairfax told CNSNews.com.

“The Jews lost probably 5 or 6 million (in the Holocaust during World War II)--horrid--even one Jew is too many killed,” she said. “But I can’t reverse history. I can’t go back 60 years, but today I can stop some abortions.” . . .

Zero seems to believe that the disabled have the right to life, but should still be killed.

Thread by me.

New United Nation's Treaty Obama Favors Targets Disabled Unborn With Abortion

President Barack Obama’s much-anticipated pro-United Nations treaty campaign has been launched with a White House ceremony declaring support for the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.

But despite the title and language of the treaty, including the affirmation of a “right to life,” it is doubtful whether the treaty would protect the rights of unborn children with disabilities, such as those with Down syndrome.

Through its affirmation of “sexual and reproductive health"-a phrase that clearly means access to abortion and abortion rights-the treaty also supports abortion, even though it has been estimated that over 90 percent of pregnancies in the United States with a diagnosis of Down syndrome are terminated through abortion.

This controversial aspect of the seemingly non-controversial treaty has been completely ignored in the many stories hailing Obama’s endorsement of the “legally binding” measure. However, it explains why a pro-abortion administration would support such a measure. This treaty, for the first time in history, establishes an international right to abortion.

On the left, the George Soros-funded Human Rights Watch called it “the first international human rights treaty signed by the United States in nearly a decade” and identified “several other important outstanding treaties” that should be signed and/or ratified, including the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) and the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC). . .
