Chicago NPR station issues bizarre plea: 'Go make babies today
American Thinker ^ | 01/30/2013 | Thomas Lifson

Posted on 01/30/2013 8:03:42 AM PST by SeekAndFind

Is the pro-abortion left beginning to have second thoughts? Could that be the impulse behind a campaign being conducted by Chicago NPR affiliate WBEZ?  Anne Sorock of Legal Insurrection highlights the curious appearance of this Facebook-based ad:

One of the principal features of life in the richest countries is the collapse of natality. Simply put, when people get rich, they tend to focus on themselves, and lose interest in having babies, which are expensive, and require a focus on something other than personal pleasure. The ready availability of contraception and abortion certainly keeps birthrates down, and the rising numbers of people

But.. Ms Sorock, the women aren’t choosing to have babies.
Are they?
And you, Ms Sorock, wouldn’t want to -how did Obama put it- punish them with babies wold you?

Oh the irony is just delicious here.
I doubt Ms Sorock would understand it.

The Leftists read the statistics, too. It’s a simple numbers game.

Leftists have anywhere from 0 to 2 children per family whereas Conservatives have 2 to 4.

Run that over time and Leftists quickly reduce themselves to irrelevance. But by their nature they worship death and destruction so this is too little too late.

Heh... this is something Christians and conservatives have always understood:

The Future Belongs to the BREEDERS!!!

Because you can’t have abortions unless you get pregnant First.

_____________________

Two questions to keep in mind:

1) Even with conservatives having more children than liberals, will conservative kids grow up to be conservative voters?

2) Will new immigrants be more liberal or conservative?

The answer to the above two questions will have a direct bearing on the future of our country.

In NPR-speak she is saying that only the ill-educated, incurious conservative Christian Republicans are procreating, and likely won’t favor NPR broadcasts. And we couldn’t have that now, could we?

That’s why liberals want control of the schools —so they can indoctrinate the children of conservative and christian parents to “the dark side” —never doubt that....

The left intentionally has taken over the education system.
You have to understand that if you’re conservative - you’re sending your kids to be raised and indoctrinated in the leftist worldview.

Fortunately, the homeschooling movement is growing. Fast enough? Dunno. But, evangelical, homeschooling families tend to be BIG. 5-10 kids. And those kids get a get a hardcore “armoring up” and understand the attacks of the left. They have an inverse “retention rate” of the conservative kids that are public educated. Instead of losing 90% of them, we “keep” 90% of them.

Paging Sandra Fluke! Paging Sandra Fluke! Sandra,, go tell this station to keep their hands/ears/eyes out of your bedroom! Go Sandra Go!

Or perhaps the abortion biz in Chicago is taking a hit and they need NPRs help to drum up some customers.

I know.
It’s just hysterical that she’s -in Obama’s terms- trying to “punish” her fellow liberals with children they don’t want and would abort at earliest “convenience.”
I can almost see her wild eyed and freaking out.
Perhaps her biological clock is ringing and she sees it as doom calling, and she doesn’t want to go down in flames alone?
Who knows.

It’s just ironic in a way considering the left and their religion of abortion as a convenience.

1) Unfortunately, the majority is about to go liberal. It might be a parents fault as well.

2) Asians, East Europeans, Russians are ultra conservative but there are a lot of red tape for them to make it here. Africans, Mexicans are after liberal cause. Arabs aren’t liberal but they are a fellow travellers for them and won’t support conservative agenda ever.

My four kids are all being homeschooled. One has started college on a scholarship, the next one is ready to start in the fall, likely with a full ride. They are both firmly grounded with a classical Christian education, and know how to do critical thinking.

We're fighting the good fight. Many people don't realize that homeschooling is one of the most subversive things you can do.

She want women to make babies so they can abort them. Planned parenthood needs funding.

So?
My point was that God commanded ALL of mankind to reproduce. -- Besides, the command to spread the gospels was given to the Christians, not mankind-in-general... otherwise there would be no need to "go [...] and teach all nations" because in order to teach one must know, and if all knew then there would be no nations to teach.

The left made a big mistake in not fighting for criminalization of homeschooling early on.

Of course, God had a hand in this blindspot of theirs.

It’s a bit too late right now, because short of tipping their hand and exposing their totalitarianism, they can’t prevent it at this point.

The HSLDA and Heritage Defense are well established and have experience and precedent behind them.

I’ve been telling people here on FR that if conservatives would just give the left what they want, good and hard, and crush their live childbirth numbers for 20 years... it would end them as a political force. Forever.

Conservatives should drive liberal women to abortion clinics with a smile on their lips, not preaching, not trying to get the liberal women to reconsider or have a care in the world.

We should offer free tubal ligation to women in abortion clinics, too.

The demographic collapse within the liberal cohort would be to the nation’s benefit.

Not really. When the number of new Dems gets low, they import more from third world holes.

Answer to question 1.
From what I have read, yes, most of the time.

Answer to question 2.
Yes, socially, and no, when it comes time to vote for more largess.

RE: Yes, socially, and no, when it comes time to vote for more largess.

So with these two values ( i.e. social vs. more government largess) in tension, which is more important by and large, and how do they generally vote?

Democrats are BOTH social and fiscal liberals. One has to choose which is more important.

You also have to keep in mind that children, besides attending home schools, are also attending charter, parochial and private ones. From the last I have read the percentage of children who are being home schooled is around four or five percent.

As the government schools continue to slide into the abyss of destruction a greater desire for other choices will increase and be created and utilized.

yeah, even leftists are looking at homeschooling because of the absolute abysmal failure of public schools.

Their kids are supposed to be educated to be the “ruling class”, so they’re really disappointed that they’re being dumbed down with the “masses”.

The left will never run out of children a long as we continue sending kids to public (government) schools. In the leftist worldview, our kids are their kids.

I agree about the HSLDA and Heritage Defense. My wife gets HSLDA e-mail updates on a regular basis.

We had the funds to do it when we only had one child, and we bought the “lifer” HSLDA at the time.

Recently joined Heritage Defense as well.

Their trouble is that progressivism is inherently anti-baby.

Importantly, when a country hits an economic plateau unique to them, their population growth drops from 6-8 per family to just maintenance, at 2.1 to 2.3 children per family.

And there it would stay, *except* that government and culture, while they cannot easily raise that rate, they can easily lower it. They do it by adding requirements and rules to parenthood. For every new rule, people decide to have less children.

The requirements and rules can seem good, or at least benign, but they aren’t. They include the minimal prosperity and materialism of their parents, and how thy “provide” for their children. These add up.

Other things include making contraception and abortion easy to get, and permissiveness to infidelity and adultery.

It’s funny how they continually shoot themselves in the foot with collectivizing the education system and everything else. All they can show for it are dead bodies, dead economies, war, starvation, poverty, ignorance, etc., etc.

That’s already being handled. More and more people who are middle-of-the-road are homeschooling. Charter school measures are winning.

The public education system and the idiot indoctrination camps we used to call universities are collapsing under their own fiscal mis-management. It’s the next bubble to collapse - you can see it coming in student debt numbers. About 25% of student loans aren’t being serviced (ie, paid, made good) by their borrowers.

Education can be turned around, once sane voters gain control at the polls.
