Posted on 01/27/2014 4:26:22 AM PST by Kaslin
Our UNC-Wilmington LGBTQIA Office is committed to equality. One of the ways they seek to promote equality is by promoting the dismemberment of innocent humans while they are trapped inside the womb. If you think these folks are compassionate then you're probably not on their mailing list. I received the following email from them just last week. It's reprinted below and interspersed with my usual biting commentary:
"Good Afternoon, The semester is off to a busy start, and there are many program [sic] to look forward to this Spring. I wanted to remind you of an event being co-sponsored by SGA, UNCW NARAL and the LGBTQIA Resource Office next week."
First, note that the student government association, or SGA, is sponsoring this event. It isn't without cost to the public. This significance of this will be apparent as we read the rest of the email sent by government employees using government resources.
"On Tuesday, January 21, to celebrate the 41st Anniversary of Roe v. Wade, there will be a showing of After Tiller at 7:00 in Lumina Theater. This showing is free and open to the public."
Note that the event is not free to the public because the taxpayers who attend pay for it with their taxes. Note also that this is not a discussion of Roe v. Wade. It is a "celebration" of Roe v. Wade. One hundred percent of UNCW money dedicated to discussion of abortion is decidedly pro-abortion. No dissenting opinions are ever funded by UNCW. The university has a clear position on abortion. That position is decidedly pro-Roe v. Wade. That is why university officials have lied to crisis pregnancy centers to keep them off the Women's Resource Center web page in the past - even as they promoted the services of Planned Parenthood, including, but not limited to, the termination of the lives of unborn human beings.
"About the film: After Tiller intimately explores the highly controversial subject of third-trimester abortions in the wake of the 2009 assassination of practitioner Dr. George Tiller. The procedure is now performed by only four doctors in the United States, all former colleagues of Dr. Tiller, who risk their lives every day in the name of their unwavering commitment toward their patients. Directors Martha Shane and Lana Wilson have created a moving and unique look at one of the most incendiary topics of our time, and theyve done so in an informative, thought-provoking, and compassionate way."
It's tough to go on for an entire paragraph with such nonstop moral confusion. In fact, just about everything in the paragraph you just read was either wrong or deeply morally misguided. First of all, third-trimester abortions really aren't controversial. That is why, overwhelmingly, people reject them as morally unacceptable cold-blooded murder. Nor are the doctors who perform them courageous. It takes no courage to dismember a developed human fetus that is trapped in the womb and can't fight back. Nor is it "moving" to celebrate child murder. Nor is it "compassionate." It is simply twisted.
"Reviews: According to the Hollywood Reporter, 'Whether one is pro-life, pro-choice or without opinion on the issue, After Tiller provides personal insight into a heart-wrenching, complex reality. The film does not pretend to be an answer to the abortion controversy but rather a presentation of the people who are demonized, correctly or incorrectly, for their actions.'
Interesting, isn't it? The LGBTQIA Office has included a set of reviews of the pro-abortion film. This one, by the Hollywood Reporter, actually suggests that the film is morally neutral on the issue of late term abortion. It isn't. This false characterization requires a substantial obfuscation. This is accomplished by characterizing a very simple issue as a "complex reality." It really isn't. Regardless of ones position on early term abortion, most people who are morally developed know that it is wrong to kill a developed human fetus.
"Additionally, Variety states, 'Martha Shane and Lana Wilson manage a rare feat in After Tiller, making a calm, humanist documentary about a hot-button topic Well contextualized and sensitively shot with extraordinary access, the pic reflects the personal, moral and ethical struggles of the doctors as well as their patients, and deserves the widest possible audience.'"
Sensitively shot to depict the ethical struggle of the doctor? Does it have a shot of the little one struggling while he (or she) is being torn limb from limb by the "struggling" abortionist? I agree it deserves a wide audience. Too bad 55 million potential viewers have been aborted and won't be there for the showing.
"And, Movie City News says, 'A+! A terrific documentary that handles sensitively this controversial and heated topic.'"
Actually, I don't think the topic is heated at all. It is cold. It is heartless advocacy of cold-blooded murder. And your taxpayer dollars are going to support it. Amy Schlag, Program Coordinator of the LGBTQIA Resource Office and UNCW Instructor of Women's Studies, left her office public phone number at the bottom of the mass email she sent promoting this event. This number is published publicly on the UNCW web page. Therefore, it is entirely appropriate for pro-lifers to use it to express their concerns. If you call, please be more compassionate than she is. Thankfully, that wont be difficult.
And, while youre at it, email UNCW Chancellor Gary Miller at email@example.com. Ask him what LGBTQIA stands for. Is it Leveraging Government Budgets To Quietly Increase Abortion? If not, then why does the university refuse to fund the other side of the issue?
And, more importantly, ask Gary Miller if anyone employed by the LGBTQIA Resource Office is splitting time working for Planned Parenthood? I already know the answer. I bet you do, too.
...To be continued.
Uh ... they can’t reproduce without outside help ... they have no say in this.
They’ve got as much right to speak as I or any other man. It doesn’t make them right but it does once again prove the hypocrisy of the left.
Just the other day on FOX Andrea Tantaros declared that men have no right to speak on birth control or abortion because theyre private matters and men need to shut up about them.
Ive got a bunch of problems with that crap. Right off the top is the 1st amendment which doesnt mention that I dont have a right to speak on specific issues. As far as them being private matters, they stopped being private when taxpayers were forced to pay for them. Until women can produce children with zero input from men, I have just as many reproductive rights as any woman.
Its been a very effective tactic for the left because it immediately eliminates half the population from the discussion. They dont stop there and then declare it off limits for various segments of the female population as well.
So remember ladies, whether I wear a condom or have had a vasectomy is none of your damn business. For that matter, if you want to find out if Im the father of your child, maybe my genetic material is off limits to your test.
OK so we discover there is a Homosexual gene and that gene could be discovered long before birth and people started aborting those with the gay gene, I wonder how they would think about it then.
So homosexuals who through their chosen life style can’t reproduce with natural means, want to murder the babies they produce with turkey basters?
Really? If they ever find a gene that predisposes one to homosexuality, we’ll see how keen this group is on letting women dispose of such “fetuses.”
It is quite meaningful that homosexual advocacy and abortion advocacy are so closely linked.
However, it requires a deep understanding to see the connection, one that most people see as a contradiction.
-——homosexual advocacy and abortion advocacy are so closely linked-——
It will be hard times for queers when the queer gene can be detected in an unborn child that will be instantly aborted.
That's okay. I don't need a test to know who the father of my children is (it's not you).
What we are hearing is a handful of loudmouths who presume to speak for the entire “gay” community.
And we’re seeing a “gay” community that (by its own nature) is so weak it will let itself be led around by the nose.
Sheep currently looking to the wrong shepherd. Maybe this is part of a divine plan to bring them into situations so absurd that even they will know this road needs to be abandoned.
I can’t remember who said it, but that gays would only become pro-life if people started aborting babies after a genetic test said they’d be homosexual, the way we are nearly wiping out Down Syndrome babies after genetic testing.
But they’d lose the argument, if you can kill the baby for any reason, why not for a genetic defect like all the others we terminate for?
When the gay gene is detectable by amniocentesis, the gay activists will be fire-bombing abortion clinics.
... I mean, if I were a “gay” and I had half a scruple I’d begin thinking about rebelling at this point. “Gays” with ethics? What? Is this a contradiction in terms? Well no, surprisingly it isn’t. If you read some of their actual discussions, sure they like their sin, but they are conflicted with wishes for the well being of society and family and friends. In the long term, of course, the sin will undermine those. And these ghastly new leaders will bring the issue to a head quicker.
God is in operation, and it isn’t just to smack an indiscriminate hammer down on the whole scene. Pressure is being applied which will (to take another metaphor) eventually pop the spiritual zit here. I believe that is what the Great Physician is up to. Hoot at me if you want. But I look for silver linings in clouds.
If such a thing could be identified.
I kind of doubt that it could. I think with enough applied research, sets of genes that would increase the likelihood of falling into that sin might be found, but we would likely also find those same genes represent a temperament of child that is a greater challenge to raise. A child that is more sensitive and that has greater spiritual capacity than most, and when frustrated he (or she) seeks satisfaction in “idols” which the devil opportunistically presents. Raising the spiritual awareness of society in general will head off a lot of these tragedies (which God can still remedy, although in later life).
I saw that. I don't think she said they have no right. I think she was saying that it is a very bad strategy for a Republican male in an upcoming election debate, since the left will perceive it as the "oppressive white male theocrat" theme and make a big stink in the media when men talk about women's birth control. She could have explained it better.
She can explain it any way she wants, she can still kiss my ass.
Want to stop the ending liberalism at universities like UNC-Wilmington? Simple, STOP FUNDING.
Stay classy, there, cripple creek.
