Obama Gives Presidential Medal of Freedom to Abortion Activist Gloria Steinem
Life News ^ | Steven Ertelt

Posted on 08/09/2013 11:20:10 AM PDT by Morgana

President Barack Obama has named sixteen recipients of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, which is the nation’s highest civilian honor. Abortion activist Gloria Steinem will be one of the recipients.

The Presidential Medal of Freedom is “presented to individuals who have made especially meritorious contributions to the security or national interests of the United States, to world peace, or to cultural or other significant public or private endeavors,” and Obama apparently believes dedicating one’s life to promoting abortion is a part of that list.

Obama said “The Presidential Medal of Freedom goes to men and women who have dedicated their own lives to enriching ours. This year’s honorees have been blessed with extraordinary talent, but what sets them apart is their gift for sharing that talent with the world. It will be my honor to present them with a token of our nation’s gratitude.”

Steinem has a long history of pushing abortion as the founder of Ms. Magazine who held fundraisers for Obama during his campaign.

Obama has given the Presidential Medal of Freedom to abortion activists before.

Sen. Ted Kennedy has earned pro-abortion records for decades for repeatedly voting to promote abortion, including his opposition to a ban on partial-birth abortions. yet he received a Presidential Medal of Freedom from Obama in 2009. Obama also awarded a medal to pro-abortion former Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor.

Not only did O’Connor repeatedly promote an unlimited right to abortion throughout pregnancy during her tenure on the Supreme Court, she authored the high court decision that overturned state bans on partial-birth abortion. The Supreme Court had to go back, years later, and reverse her decision to allow the national partial-birth abortion ban to stand.

Obama also gave a presidential medal to Billie Jean King, the acclaimed professional tennis player in the 1960s and 1970s. However, King joined the pro-abortion group Emily’s List in march 2007 to work for the presidential campaign of abortion advocate Hillary Clinton.

Reverend Joseph Lowery also received a medal from Obama even though he participated in an event in October 2006 where he joined with pro-abortion black leaders Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson in saying abortion is not an issue for black Americans.

Obama also gave an award to Mary Robinson, the first female President of Ireland and former United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights. Although Ireland laws protect unborn children, Robinson supports abortion as a human right.

Obama awarded a Presidential medal of Freedom to pro-abortion Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens.

While Obama is supporting abortion activists with a high civilian honor, President George W. Bush awarded the medal to pro-life advocates. Former member of Congress Henry Hyde received one as did Cuba pro-life activist Dr. Oscar Elias Biscet.

This year marks the 50th Anniversary of the Executive Order signed by President John F. Kennedy establishing the Presidential Medal of Freedom, as well as the first ceremony bestowing the honor on an inaugural class of 31 recipients. Since that time, more than 500 exceptional individuals from all corners of society have been awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

A devalued honor, like the Nobel Prize.

Sort of like the old Soviet Union, where the comrades would walk around with their fronts covered with all kinds of shiny medals for potty training, party loyalty, etc.

Steinem who proudly wears a t-shirt that says “I had an abortion” which she had before ‘73 in The UK and thought, “This is so great, it should be legal in the US”.... The woman is EVIL personified.

There never was any meaning in these silly awards anyway. They have always been an excuse to reward political pals, and make the elite feel even better about themselves. Who gives a rat’s butt?

Yup. But I find it interesting how the politicization of the Medal of Freedom so closely parallels what happened to the Medal of Honor. The Medal of Honor was created during the unCivil War. By the end of the war it was being handed out to party hacks and politically connected. I think it was in the 1870s during the Grant administration, it was decided to restore the Medal to it’s original intent. I forget now, but I think over a hundred recipients had their Medals taken back. Now it is one of the most valued medals for valor in the world or even in history.

“If you don’t win it in competition it is meaningless.”

I like the way you think. Our oldest son says that any competition without an objective measure of success (points scored, best time, etc.) isn’t a real competition. Figure skating, for example, is silly. It may be pretty, but it’s not really competition nor a sport.

Bingo, either by clock or score against an opponent. Anything based entirely on being judged is a subjective pant load.

Study Links Abortion, Race And Lower Crime

Old Free Republic thread ^ | 5/17/2001 | George Lawson

A controversial study linking a reduction in crime during the 1990s with legalized abortion two decades earlier has been published in one of the nation’s foremost scholarly journals.

The study, entitled The Impact of Legalized Abortion on Crime, was published in the May 7 edition of the Quarterly Journal of Economics, which is edited by the Economics Department of Harvard University and calls itself “the oldest professional journal of economics in the English language.”

Authored by researchers John J. Donohue III and Steven D. Levitt, the study had been privately circulated since 1999, but had not been accepted for publication in a scholarly journal until now.

An abstract of the study, published in November 2000 by the National Bureau of Economic Research, states, “legalized abortion appears to account for as much as 50 percent of the recent drop in crime,” during the 1990s.

The study also suggests that abortion particularly among young black women results in a significant decrease in crime.

“Fertility declines for black women are three times greater than for whites,” stated the study. “Given that homicide rates of black youths are roughly nine times higher than those of white youths, racial differences in the fertility effects of abortion are likely to translate into greater homicide reductions.”
Donohue and Levitt state that their study is not an attempt to promote abortion, which opposed by about as many people who support it.
“In attempting to identify a link between legalized abortion and crime, we do not mean to suggest that such a link is ‘good’ or ‘just,’ but rather, merely show that such a relationship exists,” the researchers note.

In conducting their study, Donohue and Levvitt, researchers at Stanford Law School and the University of Chicago, respectively, the two said their data show that the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion nationwide was followed by a significant drop in crime during the 1990s.

“Abrupt legal developments... might plausibly have a similarly abrupt influence 15-20 years later when the cohorts born in the wake of liberalized abortion would start reaching their high-crime years,” the study states.
The analysis included four primary factors: race, teenage motherhood, unmarried motherhood and whether the conceived child was indeed wanted.

Pro-life groups and some African-American organizations denounced the study when it first became public in August 1999, referring to it in terms of “prenatal racial profiling” and “eugenics,” which deals with controlled human mating.

The group Project 21 said two years ago that “widespread acceptance of the conclusions of studies like “Legalized Abortion and Crime” could be used to resurrect... Margaret Sanger’s racist “Negro Project” of the 1930s,” which was an effort to reduce the size of black families.

But since it’s emergence in 1999, the study has been steadily accepted in the academic community and is now listed among the requirements of numerous university courses and in a growing number of university libraries.
The William M. Rains Library at Loyola Law School in Los Angeles listed the study in its February 2001 Accessions List, and a Fall, 2000 economics course at Harvard University listed the study as part of the course’s reading requirements.

The research by Donohue and Levitt is also among the scholarly readings available at the Georgetown University Law Center and the report is listed among the readings for courses in Labor, Economics, Public Policy and Human Capital at the University of California-Los Angeles.

FDR, MARGARET SANGER, THE BLACK PROJECT AND THE TUSKEGEE STUDY.

UNDER FDR AND TRUMAN, BLACKS AND GUATEMALANS WERE INFESTED WITH SYPHILIS IN NAZI-STYLE EXPERIMENTS

President Obama personally gave an apology to Guatemala President Alvaro Colon by studies carried out by the health authorities of United States that infested their citizens with sexually transmitted diseases, especially terrible syphilis between the years 1946 to 1948, under the Government of the Democratic President, Harry Truman.

Such atrocity has its antecedent and genesis during the administration of Franklin D. Roosevelt, under whose protection Margaret Sanger, progressive Democrat activist and founder of the family planning, promoted the eugenic theories aimed at creating a superior white race “eliminating the useless eaters”, which is how they qualified to blacks, Hispanics, Slavs and other ethnic groups that the democratic progressives considered genetic and intellectually inferior.

In its magazine “The Birth Control Review” the Sanger openly supported infanticide promoted by the Nazis in 1930 program extolling Hitler agenda to achieve the supremacy of the white race Aria, arriving to Sanger as an advisor in your organization Ernst Rudin, the director of horrendous medical experiments of the Nazis programs.

Already in 1920, Margaret Sanger, with their enormous influence in the party and the Democrat Government, advocated the Elimination of what she describes as yerba mala of the human race, as well as the Elimination of the charity since this prolonged the life of the less fit, while he promoted the segregation of the morons, the mentally or socially misaligned and the forced sterilization of the races that she considered genetically inferior getting to open a clinic for the birth control in the Brownsville section of New York populated by Slavic, Latino, Jewish, and Italian newly-arrived immigrants in his crusade to “save the planet” of those individuals who qualify for inept. On its black list Sanger later added the fundamentalists, Catholics and the American Indians.

The organization founded by Margaret Sanger, Planned Parenthood, receives hundreds of millions of dollars of the American taxpayers to maintain their billionaire and macabre business while they advance the purposes and methods of its founder building his babies slaughterhouses mainly in districts predominantly black and Hispanic.

The first presidential decree to take over Obama was to rescind the ban on President Bush that the taxpayers money could not go to any of the organizations of the United Nations involved in the global promotion of abortion, thus opening Obama flag so that it forward the genocide of children still in the womb of mothers in the third world, paid for by our taxes.

Later, in 1939, organizes Sanger their “black project” designed to eliminate those members that were part of what she described as “inferior race” justifying its proposal because according to her “the masses of blacks, particularly in the South, breed irresponsible and disastrously, with the consequent increase of blacks, which grew even more than whites, blacks for them being the portion of the population least intelligent and capable.”

Wrapped in the occult, the Sanger increased their hostility both to Christianity as well as the principles of individual freedoms given by the creator that this nation was founded. His contempt for U.S. were captured when he wrote: “the birth control promotes the advancement of radicalism because it is calculated to undermine the authority of the Christian churches. We must achieve a humanity free both Christianity and capitalism.”

Margaret Sanger was admired by the Nazis, hugging communism and Theosophy, she was, as Hitler, a disciple of Madame Blavatsky, founder of the religion that rejects God and worship serves Lucifer, a cult which retains a powerful influence in certain circles in New York, Washington, D.C. and around the U.S.

It is no coincidence that the book that most influence has had on Obama, and that earned him to master the technique to achieve power, was “Rules for Radicals” and that its author, Sal Alinsky, is dedicated to Lucifer.

Margaret Sanger turned to use some black Ministers take their congregations propaganda for birth control, since I didn’t want to go to realize that its purpose was to exterminate the black population.

It was within this collusion between the democratic administration of F.D.R., who incubated under the reign of F.D.R. the macabre monstrosity, more worthy of Nazi Germany as a nation founded on respect for divine creation, of what was called the study of scientific research “Tuskegee” in which 400 black men were recruited by the Department of public health in 1932 and infested with syphilis under the delusion that they were going to be treated for their infections when instead they were not administered any drug in order to study the development of such devastating disease infested. The study continued for 40 years and the 400 survived only 125. No one was prosecuted or convicted of heinous crime.

In its “Plan for Peace” founder “Planned Parenthood” intended to segregate or forced sterilization of those who she considered genetically inferior. Between 2,000 to 4,000 forced sterilizations were performed annually under F.D.R. The Nazi Minister, Ernest Rudin, later resorted to forced sterilization of Jews in occupied Europe through rays X. Margaret Sanger was decorated by Hitler for his work on eugenics, science of which Hitler used to justify their mental alienations of creating a breed of Arian, pure and superior.

Not happy Democrats white supremacists with their historical record of supporting slavery, the KKK, the lynching of blacks, the denial of their civil rights, segregation and use blacks of Guinea pigs for medical experiments, under the Government of Harry Truman, those same monsters of evil led his diabolical experiments to Guatemala to see if the Hispanics reacted just like blacks against inoculation of the scourge of syphilis to see as this disease was destroying the bodies of those unhappy without receiving any treatment.
