Lautenberg to Pro-Life Republicans: 'Donít Go Near My Daughters'
CNS News ^ | February 08, 2011 | Nicholas Ballasy

Posted on 02/09/2011 6:11:16 AM PST by IbJensen

“If they want to make a choice, that’s up to them and it’s with the advice of a doctor and loving parents and a loving family.”

(CNSNews.com) - In expressing opposition to the House Republicans' "No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act," Senator Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J.) said politicians should not interfere with his family’s health and well-being. He also had a message for the GOP, saying, “I won’t attempt to voice my views on your family and let my family alone. Don’t go near my daughters.”

“I’m experienced. I’m the proud father of three daughters, two more that my wife brought to our marriage, six granddaughters. My wife brought two more to the marriage. So we got a full house of healthy and well-being young women. I don’t want politicians making decisions for them when it comes to their health and well being,” said Lautenberg on Capitol Hill.

He was joined by other Democratic senators at a press conference held to "express their opposition to legislation being pushed by House Republicans this week that would endanger women's health by severely limiting their access to affordable health care and reproductive health services."

Lautenberg continued, “I call on my colleagues in the House. Do as you wish with your family. Tell your daughters, tell your wife, you do that. That’s the wonderful part about America. It’s choice. It’s choice and there should be no force used here but don’t interfere with my family’s well being.”

“I won’t attempt to voice my views on your family and let my family alone," he said. "Don’t go near my daughters. If they want to make a choice, that’s up to them and it’s with the advice of a doctor and loving parents and a loving family. So we’ve got to strike down this outrageous assault on women's rights."

The focus of the Democrats’ criticism is the “No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act,” sponsored by Rep. Chris Smith (R-N.J.). The legislation would prohibit “the expenditure of funds authorized or appropriated by federal law or funds in any trust fund to which funds are authorized or appropriated by federal law (federal funds) for any abortion. Prohibits federal funds from being used for any health benefits coverage that includes coverage of abortion.” It would also re-install a ban on D.C. abortion funding.

Lautenberg, who appeared with Sens. Patty Murray (D-Wash.), Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) and Al Franken (D-Minn.) at the press conference, also said the GOP’s efforts to limit access to abortion services reminds him of a Third World country.

“If they had their way, the reproductive rights of American women would be tossed away and it sounds to me like a Third World country that’s requiring women to wear head shawls to cover their faces even if they don’t want to do it," said Lautenberg. "This is America. It’s not one of the third world countries that we see these tragic decisions hoisted upon the women."

I could not understand the mindset of Nazis camp guards. Having met "good" people who support child murder I have learned of the total disconnect of their thought process. They simply refuse to even consider the humanness of the children. I'll never understand them.

The Inca culture sacrificed children in a ritual called capacocha.

Scientists have found that ancient Mexican and Mayan civilisations sacrificed children.

Sen. Lautenberg, Sens. Patty Murray (D-Wash.), Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) and Al Franken (D-Minn.). -- Great Philosophers.

All of these distinguished thinkers are well aware that the 'great civilizations' of the world practiced the sacrificial offering of children to the great spirit or to evil spirits, or to the ju ju bird or whatever was de rigueur to the current zeitgeist of the time.

If we want our economy to improve we must sacrifice too! Congress could make doctors wear the traditional Aztec Jawillabilla while they dismember the fetus and scatter its parts.

“Pro choice” - phooey! Only choice is for the mother. The baby simply gets killed. The baby has no choice.

Senator Lautenberg, don’t go near my daughters and force them to pay for somebody’s abortion. Don’t go near my women folk and steal more of their money to fund your pet projects. Give them and me the choice.

“I don’t want politicians making decisions for them when it comes to their health and well being,”

I love the hypocrisy! This dipshiite doesn’t want the government telling his daughters how they should care for their health, yet he votes to FORCE medical coverage on the rest of us AND make us pay for procedures for others that we oppose.

Do we need any more examples of D.C. elites imposing laws on the minions while exempting themselves?

-—I don’t want politicians making decisions for them when it comes to their health and well being,” said Lautenberg on Capitol Hill.-—

Is that so? What was/is his position on ObamaCare? What has the good Senator said about other FedGov overreaches?

Or is it, like the rest of his ilk, that abortion, homosexuality, and blasphemy trumps everything else.

The term “reproductive rights” is so misleading.

It really should be stated otherwise, i.e. “option to abort”

And another thing, it is not a “right”

From my understanding of the leftist mindset,
if “the government” doesn’t pay for it,
you’re “restricting the freedom” of those who can’t afford it.

I know, it’s totally upside down and inside out,
but what do you expect from people whose worldview is premised on Luciferian lies?

Lautenberg actually has daughters under 50. I looked it up yesterday and if I recall correctly the daughters are now aged 47, 52, and 56.

Lautenberg is 87 years old.

“I have learned of the total disconnect of their thought process. “

If you think about it is part of the hate diseae that has infected the World.

The pro-aborts are not unlike the Islamofascist.
They hate the unborn just as much as the Muslims hate “infiedels”.

Abortion masked as "choice."
A doctor who has sworn to "do no harm" surrounded by all those "loving" people.
How vile, how disgusting.

Phyllis Schlafly explains that feminists are really dictators who want to leave women no choice but to follow a humanist, politically correct lifestyle:

The feminists whine endlessly using their favorite word "choice" in matters of abortion, but they reject choice in gender roles. The Big Mama of feminist studies, Simone de Beauvoir, said, "We don't believe that any woman should have this choice. No woman should be authorized to stay at home to raise her children . . . precisely because if there is such a choice, too many women will make that one."

So I'm guessing he doesn't consider grandchildren a part of his family.

What an empty way of thinking. Choosing to kill my grandchild is ok, if my family decides it is.

But the rest of us slugs have to pay for it!

No need to keep getting into the weeds about abortion. It is very simple:

Are you in favor of killing babies? Yes or No.

Why even discuss any of the minutia?

That doesn’t work.
The pro(had)-aborts that I know of simply say “it’s not a baby”,

and no amount of sonograms, DNA tests, or saving of way pre-mature babies

will even be considered, even to the point of the
fingers in the ears “na na na I’m not listening to you” denials.

Last election cycle here in Australia a leftie woman told Tony Abbott (Conservative Pro-life Leader) that she didn’t want him rummaging around in her daughters knickers. This is almost the same but toned down for an American audience. I am amased at how much I see the lefts retoric seemd to get repeated in each country.

She had the choice, to engage or to not engage in the activity that created new life. It should not be her choice to destroy it.

Senator Lautenberg needs to have retired a long time ago. I don’t want him near my daughters. If he feels this way I hope he makes it clear on zerocare issues. I don’t want my daughters going without mammograms etc. I wish this old man would just retire, he falls under my too old list & needs to be checked for dementia etc.

This is another example of how insidious are the lies about abortion, that this man thinks abortion is a loving choice for his daughters to make and her family to accept and condone.

Could he say this after seeing a 3D or 4D sonogram of one of his grandchildren? If he could, he is truly lost.

Too many people think of abortion as an abstract choice and not as the murder of an innocent human.

I've attended more "office" lunches and dinners with 20 or more participants than I can count. By choice, I drank water and ate lightly. Others "pigged out" and consumed several alcoholic drinks.

The waiter was usually told, "bring one check, and we'll divvy it up ourselves" -- so the total check was divided by the number of attendees.

My "share" frequently came out way over twice the cost of what I'd consumed. So. I started taking the radical step of asking the waiter to bring the bar bill separately.

Often, the bar bill was higher than the food bill -- and when I said "count me out of the bar bill participants", the libs often squealed at how "unfair" that was!

~~~~~~~~~~

I wouldn't pay for Lautenberg's booze; why should I pay for his daughters' abortions?

(I haven't yet figured out how to avoid being taxed for Lautenberg's -- and others' -- gluttony...)

~~~~~~~~~~

When I finally started asking the waiter to bring me a separate check -- and tipping handsomely for the privilege, I invariably still came out 'way ahead. And when the office libs called me "cheap", my response was, "Not so; I simply refuse to participate in Socialism when I can avoid it."

Agreed!
I wonder what Lautenberg would say to Kermit Gosnell about his daughters?

Sadly, we are seeing more parents/grandparents pressuring for the abortions of their prosperity. Many sidewalk counselors share accounts of girls being dragged kicking and screaming into abortion facilities by their own parents. One baby was saved in Austin recently. The authorities were called and through the Texas Justice Foundation, letters were given to the parents warning about coercing an abortion and then an injunction was placed.

It did save the life of THAT baby!
