Daily Kos Article Says Number of Abortions is "Too Low," Doesn't Want Them Rare
Life News ^ | 4/30/10 | Sarah Knoploh

Posted on 04/30/2010 4:18:19 PM PDT by wagglebee

LifeNews.com Note: Sarah Knoploh is a conservative, Christian and a freelance writer for the Culture & Media Institute. The item previously appeared on the NewsBusters blog and is reprinted with permission.

April 28 was apparently Abortion Uber Alles day at the liberal Web site Daily Kos. Aimee Thorne-Thomsen of the Pro-Choice Public Education Project stated that the number of women who receive abortions is “too low” in “Keep Abortions Safe and Legal? Yes. Make it Rare? Not the Point.”

A separate article blasted the new law in Oklahoma that makes it mandatory for woman to receive ultrasounds by making crude comparisons and calling it “blackmail.”

Even though 1.21 million abortions were performed in 2005, this was not enough for Thorne-Thomsen. She wrote, “On the other hand, if those 1.21 million abortions represent only the women who could access abortion financially, geographically or otherwise, then that number is too low. Yes, too low.”

She never explained how many abortions a year would be enough for the Pro-Choice Public Education Project, but continued to write, “We say we care about women and want them to have access to all the information, services and resources necessary to make the best decisions they can for themselves and their families. That is at the core of reproductive justice. Not reducing the number of abortions.”

Of course, Thorne-Thomsen didn't “care for women” enough to mention the negative consequences of abortions. Suicide, depression, infections, sterility, and even death can result from abortions, according to National Right to Life.

Rather, as an abortion absolutist, she asked, “Do we dare admit that increasing the number of abortions might be not only good for women’s health, but also moral and just?”

Unfortunately, the other Daily Kos article about abortion was not any better. The author complained that Oklahoma’s new abortion law, which mandates that women undergo an ultrasound of their fetus before aborting, is “tantamount to emotional blackmail. And it's not even blackmail of a particularly subtle variety. It's insulting and demeaning and humiliating and patronizing all at once.”

The author described that in the earlier stages of pregnancies the fetus resembles a “fleshy jellybean” and complained that Oklahoma has become, “a testing ground for radical anti-abortion lawmaking.”

The author also felt that having a pregnant woman view her fetus before receiving an abortion is the same as:

A: Setting a firefighter on fire before he can rush into a burning building
B: Requiring a soldier to get shot before he is issued a firearm
C: Showing a man seeking a vasectomy his own vas deferens by sticking a camera in through his urethra.

Not really anywhere equivalent to a pregnant woman looking at her unborn baby before an abortion. But good enough for the abortion absolutists at Daily Kos.

Too low? That's a murdered baby EVERY 24 SECONDS you heartless bitch.

They should lead by example and commit suicide. Heck, if they want unlimited abortions, then having them far removed from birth should be just fine.

Likely when there are NO live births, she'll consider the number just about right.

I feel sick.

God's going to have to forgive me for wishing that she'd feel the pain for eternity that every baby who was ever aborted was forced to endure.

____________________________

I’m not sure if you’re correct on this.

But Obamacare will definitely dramatically increase the amount of money spent on abortion in America.

Right now, many abortion mill patrons don’t have medical insurance coverage for abortion and pay cash money. Once insurance companies and the government begin paying for it, the revenues will definitely pick up to catch up with the rest of the medical field.

Many in the pro-choice movement are for popualtion control. Marget Sanger created Planned Parenthood for that reason. At least some groups see abortion for what it is. It is genocide against the poor, handicappe and minorities.

Can’t credit liberals for very many smart analogies. I’d love to see them try to sell that tired old feminist liberation garbage today.

The author makes reference to abortion being like setting a fireman on fire before rushing into a building, a soldier being shot before being issued a firearm, and a man having to view his vans deferens before getting a vasectomy.

This is a ridiculous analogy and completely wrong. It would be more fair to compare a fireman watching his child be set on fire, or his child being shot. It has always been a puzzlement to me when pro aborts go nuts about the ultrasound thing. If a woman wants an abortion, an ultrasound will NOT change her mind, UNLESS she had been convinced by someone that the baby she is carrying is a clump of cells, not a life. Abortions will NOT be reduced by this law unless most women don’t know they are carrying a baby in the first place, IMHO, and therefore, ultrasounds won’t deter them from their choice. That said, if they have been lied to about development of a baby in the womb, and this window in shows that, then there will be a dramatic drop in the number of abortions because of this law. Just what exactly are the pro aborts worried about? Perhaps misleading those women coming in to PP about abortion? Seems silly to me to be so off their rockers. They are the ones who always talk about learning, education, enlightenment, and all that. You would think educating a woman about this stuff would be a natural for those who consider themselves so progressive and enlightened, no?

Interesting that in the photo accompanying the article that a clenched fist—a communist symbol—is featured on the yellow protest banner.

Can there be any doubt that the real goal all along was not just the lives of the innocents, but harvesting the souls of those poor misguided women who aborted them?

You might as well hold a Black Mass and use the Blood of the Innocents as communion wine.

There will never be enough. Moloch is a hungry god.

Some do.

At the AMERICAN HOLOCAUST MEMORIAL in Baton Rouge a pentagram is on the floor in the attic. 30,000 babies were aborted there from 1986 to 1994.

Everyone involved in abortion are committing horrifically evil acts, but some are actually involved in abortion as a part of their satanic religion. Over the course of 20+ years, some have proudly admitted this to the owner of the Memorial as he prays in front of many abortion mills.

A documentary was made about this subject:

http://www.americanportraitfilms.com/shop/item.aspx?itemid=242

The Massacre of Innocence: The Occult Roots of Abortion

DVD

“At last, a presentation that ties up loose ends and looks at the spiritual realities behind abortion. Well-done, incisive and prophetic…every Christian needs to watch it.” Gary Bergel, Executive Director – Intercessors for America

The classic pro-life documentary that has helped change thousands of lives, save only God knows how many babies, open eyes and hearts, and inspire prayer, activism, the creation of crisis pregnancy clinics and all manner of pro-life activity around the world.

The Massacre of Innocence looks at the spiritual roots of abortion and exposes the myths surrounding child-killing. Little known historical facts about abortion, drawn from both the scriptures and occult history, establish the links between pagan child sacrifice, witchcraft and our modern, technocratic form of "pregnancy termination". Though produced in 1985, this video remains the definitive work on the spiritual roots of abortion and has not only been effective in converting many to a pro-life position; it has helped launch a number of pro-life ministries. The section on 'the travail of child-birth' and restitution has also been helpful in bringing healing to women who have had abortions.

Now for the first time on DVD; digitally re-mastered from the original source tape.

Showing a man seeking a vasectomy his own vas deferens by sticking a camera in through his urethra.

Might be a good idea.

Abortion is genocide and Planned Parenthood and other abortion clinics should be put out of business!
