...However, birth control and abortion are issues where words like murder and infanticide get thrown around. This is when the self-righteous zealots that are protecting the rights of the unspoken for feel it incumbent upon themselves to dictate their morality upon others. Many of those who want to legislate the internal organs of women are strong adherents to a Biblical viewpoint. So,let me invoke from the Gospels and the words of Jesus in Mark 7:1 (KJV) - Judge not, that ye be not judged. This should be an issue of help not hate. For many on the pro-life side the views are fueled by Christianity but not seemingly compassion.
The second speaker, Martha Skeeters, a representative from the Oklahoma Coalition for Reproductive Justice, did a magnificent job in her short speech. She used a more diplomatic and traditional approach in her oral presentation. She first inquired as to why the crowd of 50 or so was standing at the state capitol on a rainy, dreary Monday night. After others chimed in, I patiently asserted I am here because I am tired of the government infringing upon our privacy. To me, that is the heart of the issue. The universal appeal of rallying for such a right is inherently that it stands for privacy and freedom. For some there I am sure there are much more personal reasons to come out and protest. However, it is the idea that the government wants to come into every aspect of our life and even inside ones body and tell a person what they can and cannot do, and be the force which becomes an arbiter of morality, and that infringes upon the privacy of the individual. This notion that the government knows best needs to be eradicated.

Ummm...Mark 7:1 doesn’t say that. Matthew 7:1 does and this person clearly has no understanding of its context.
Jesus was not saying not to judge sin...just that we must judge righteously and without hypocricy. Last I looked I hadn’t murdered anyone...I’m gonna go ahead and judge them.
Defining a dog’s tail a leg does not give a dog five legs. No one has ever sought to interfere with anyone’s REPRODUCTIVE Rights. The only thing that is being interfered with is people murdering other people. This is enough to make me puke. I understand kids can be a “drag” on one’s personal economy. Don’t make them, then you won’t have to kill them. Abortion is the termination of something, in this case a human life. No one is interfering with a woman doing what she wants with her own body, it is the body of a human child she carries within her that has a right to live that is being talked about. If there is a right to kill the child, how long does that right extend?
If you purport to be the author of this, why have you excerpted it?
In these days of modern contraceptives there is no excuse for Abortion.
>> “Reproductive Rights”
It’s not about the right to avoid getting pregnant, but about having the right to kill.
Abortion enthusiasts are like the SS guards escorting the Jews to the ovens.
yup if the focus of these “ladies” was really “reproduction” they’d be taking the “pill” and insisting that their “boyfriends” always use a condom. both are very easy to get. while claiming that people of traditional morality are “self” righteous they do not offer any other origin besides themselves for their own notions of “righteousness.”
Uh... a baby is not an organ, it is it’s own separate person. These people love using creative language to justify their evil actions!
Warning: graphic images of aborted children.
Mr. Woodward says he's tired of the government infringing on his privacy. Maybe he should discuss real privacy with AG Eric Holder, the NSA, and his President, King Zero.
But what is this "privacy" he's so up in arms about? The "right" to murder unborn children? How in the name of the living God is that a right? Please don't tell me, Mr. Woodward, that our rights come from the Constitution. That is a liberal fallacy. Our basic rights are enshrined in the Constitution but not derived from it.
Our rights as humans are eternal and constant. A document can be changed at the whim of one person, if he has enough power, or believes he does, as does the current occupant of the White House.
Our rights come from the divine, not a consensus. We are born with our rights, they are not given to us. The Constitution was meant as a way to halt government tyranny, but the liberals/Dems have worked hard these past 200 years to turn it around and make it a limit on the People's rights and to give the government free reign.
People like Mr. Woodward think they believe in privacy rights, but in reality it's just a very small, limited scope of privacy rights he and they are interested in: privacy for him and others like him, but none for any who dare disagree with him.
Like unborn children.
I’m Pro-Choice! I believe all Democrats should be aborted.
Abortion is a moral right—which should be left to the sole discretion of the woman involved’ - Ayn Rand
Ayn Rand is not a very good moral compass. You can do much better than that.
Holding your breath waiting for a reply?
Naw, it’s a blogpimp.
Most of them aren’t even aware of replies here.
They focus on their hit counters.
What about the reproductive rights of female babies?
He also hasn’t posted anything for almost three years. Maybe he was in prison, lol.
