Democrat candidate calls for post-abortive women to stand for applause at conference

PROVIDENCE, June 14, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) - A Democratic congressional candidate called for attendees at a progressivist conference to exercise “cultural power” by proudly touting past abortions, and urged post-abortive audience members to stand and be recognized.

Darcy Burner, who is running for a seat in the House of Representatives for Washington State’s first district, was the opening speaker for an afternoon plenary session of Netroots Nation, a convention for liberal activists held this past week in Providence, Rhode Island. The session was titled, “The War on Women,” and the theme of Burner’s talk was “Going on the Offense.”

“If you are a woman in this room, and statistically this is true for about one third of the women in this room, if you’re a woman in this room who has had an abortion and is willing to come out about it, please stand up,” Burner exhorted her listeners.

The number of women who stood, says conservative blogger Melissa Clouthier, who was in attendance, was “difficult to estimate,” but Clouthier describes them as “sprinkled throughout the audience.”

A tentative smattering of applause began to break out, but Burner interjected, directing the audience to hold their applause for a moment.

“Now, if you are willing to stand with every woman who is willing to come out about having had an abortion, please stand up,” she said, then added, to applause: “This is how we change the stories in people’s heads. Now you may applaud. We need to make it ok for women to come out about the choices that we’ve made.”

The demonstration, according to Burner, was an instance of “cultural power,” one of the six “types of power” that she urged listeners to employ in pushing the feminist agenda.

Darcy Burner has lost 2x’s already. This is rather amazing considering that she’s from “liberal” Western Washington.

Is it just me or does it seem to anyone else here that a lot of these women seem to think that a woman is not a real woman unless she has at one abortion in her lifetime. It is like they are obsessed with the subject.

I have one: I just butchered my dog and put him on a spit over the BBQ. Anyone who has done the same or agree with the idea, get up from their keyboardS and give me a standing O.

How incredibly ironic!!

“Burner was adopted at birth in Alaska and grew up in a Republican household in Nebraska farm country. Her father, Ralph Gibbons, spent 20 years in the Air Force, settling after his military retirement with his wife and five kids in Fremont, Nebraska. Burner was the Civil Air Patrol National Cadet of the Year in 1989.[1]”

Anyone who doubts that such people could easily be led to an acceptance of forced euthanasia for the elderly is stupid.

Unless society comes to its senses then someday such people will be proud that they assisted in the murder of the elderly and infirm. Such creatures can justify anything.... fear them.

A new wrinkle on an old ploy, I guess. IIRC, Mizzzz Steinem (in)famously ran something in one her mags about women who were proud to have their abortions. More recently (last 10-15 years ago or so), another mag did something similar. I remember actress Amy Brenneman was one of the people who “came out” for the article.

I dunno, man. I guess I’m just a neanderthal, meat-eating, bitter clinger and all that, but I don’t see anything to applaud here whatsoever.

Indeed. It’s like abortion is a “sacrament” in the pagan religion of feminism.

Abortions and homosexual behavior certainly seem to go together. They’re both anti-life and anti-procreation.

What’s truly ironic, actually sick, is not the fact that she comes from a conservative family, but that she was ADOPTED at birth... yet she’s promoting abortion! If her natural mother had had her views she (Burner) wouldn’t be around today - and her natural mother would be standing and applauding her death at the NUTROOT!

Did she then call for all convicted murderers to stand up and take a bow?

“Anyone who doubts that such people could easily be led to an acceptance of forced euthanasia for the elderly is stupid.”

You are absolutely right, and they will dangle the same bait: the physical and financial comfort of those responsible for their care. With the elderly there may be additional financial incentives to kill them off as well: inheriting property rather than spending it on their care.

Frightening; we are becoming Red China...

Your aboftion was gotten under the recently-discovered right to privacy. Please, invoke that.

Why do people scream "privacy" over things that they shout down Main Street.

“Pride” in baby killing. “Pride” in fudge packing. We are one sick nation.

And our presumptive Republican nominee has lead the way for this kind of sickness.

An anti-life, pro-gay president means the bulk of America has told God to get lost. So far it is only one sided...the democratic side that elected Obama.

With Romney, that will give the other side a chance to do the right thing. He, too, is an anti-life, pro-gay candidate. A vote for Romney will convict almost all of America of the same thing: rejecting God.

Then the nation will be ripe for judgement.

However, as with Abraham and the angel visitation prior to the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, perhaps if there is a remnant of believers God will relent and send revival instead of destruction.

It is for America in the eyes of God that we stand against BOTH Obama and Romney.

But, when it begins, judgement will begin in the household of God.

Perhaps her natural father or birth mother was mentally ill as well. Pathetic woman, a true self-loather. Bob
