IS THE LEFT LOSING ON ABORTION?
American Spectator ^ | 3.11.14 | Natalie deMacedo

Posted on 03/14/2014 8:15:16 PM PDT by neverdem

It looks like the Democrats are steadily losing the war on women.

The state of West Virginia, which votes for Republican presidents but has a Democratic governor and state legislature, passed a ban on abortions after 20 weeks because babies are viable outside the womb and can feel pain.

West Virginia is the first Democrat-ruled state to do so, and the vote was not even close:

The state’s Democrat-led House the House passed the bill 85-15, according to the Associated Press. The Senate had previously passed the bill 25 to 9, according to the Herald Dispatch.

The outstanding support for the ban should encourage the pro-life community. Even liberals are having a hard time justifying abortions when premature babies have survived outside the womb after 20 weeks.

Likewise, Wendy Davis won her Texas primary with ease, but the counties she lost had large Hispanic populations. Davis’s only chance at winning rests on securing the female and minority vote, but with large Catholic Hispanic populations, she underestimated how important abortion would be to that sector of her base.

And in Missouri, legislators have more than 30 pieces of pro-life legislation on their desks. These laws include requirements for a three-day waiting period and a mandatory video and information packet women would have to watch/receive before having an abortion. One law requires that minors inform their parents and acquire consent from at least one parent before an abortion. Another requires abortion clinics to have quarterly state inspections. For monetary incentive, some bills provide tax credits to crisis and adoption centers and ease advertising restrictions on pro-life organizations...

Democrats love dead babies. Especially dead black and hispanic babies. Yet, the GOP-E refuses to engage them on this...most likely because GOP-E enjoys dead babies as much as Democrats do.

Abortion is more popular in theory than in practice.

Just think of that poor little baby. It hasn’t hurt anyone. It just wants to be loved.

Doesn’t it make more sense, given what we know about it’s growth and activity inside its Mom, to give it the benefit of what little doubt there is and accept it as human life?

It’s a sign of how poor we are inside our hearts if we can’t say yes to this little, helpless baby.

Yes. They will eventually lose on abortion. If they are not losing now, they will. Just a matter of time

Abortion is horrible Biblical proportions

This is a situation that challenges the boundaries of “conservatism as we know it.”

In fact it challenges them so badly one might be moved to wonder why liberals aren’t stepping up to the plate as readily as they do for the whales and puppy dogs they want to save.

Humanity, thy name is inconsistent. Happily God’s name isn’t.

It’s so ironic. Were Democrats to preach more respect for God’s creations among the underclass they say they so love... pretty soon they’d win a demographic battle.

The answer is not in any mortal political party. It’s in the Lord, and the platform is the Gospel.

And yes, we need to choose the fear of the Lord again. We get lots of warnings before going to hell. Listening to them will do a lot of good.

Think of all of the child sacrifice back in the ancient days. Dems are just modern day throwbacks from that period.

How a Leftist can be a Christian and love abortion eludes me. Maybe they think killing a child is a form of love or something. That sure would put a whole new spin on what the Christian’s rabbi said about the children.

Baby murder has an intimate connection to satan.

Some actually believe that abortion is a bloody sacrament.

Indeed the Christ is the only one who deserves to be called Great and Teacher against the backdrop of the rest.

Christianity (and Christ) also warns about false teachers. They’ll take something good out of Christianity and pervert it. The self sacrifice of Christ can be twisted into the gratuitous sacrifice of children. One is a blessing, the other a bane.

mark my words.

abortion will someday be looked back on as the greatest holocaust in human history. And all those who advocated for it will be vilified for all time.

My hope is that those chiefly responsible will one day be hunted down just as the Nazi’s were till the day they die.

The key to eventually ending all abortions once and for all is to drive a wedge between those who advocate for it and those women who have undergone the procedure.

The reason so many on the left are so fiercely pro abortion is that they have had one and don't wont to admit they are capable of murdering someone, much less an innocent baby.

THIS is the key to ending this abomination!

Instead of only portraying the innocent child as the only victim, the women who have had abortions must also be made to feel like victims. They were brainwashed by those abortion peddlers into believing their unborn child was nothing but a lump of cells. This will enable them to rationally switch to a pro life position without condemning themselves in the process.

This in my opinion is the KEY to ending this once and for all.

What surprises me (that it never comes up) is that nothing is ever said about prostitution.

If a woman has the “right” to do with her body as she pleases, even as far as killing her unborn child, who should be able to tell her that she can’t sell access to her body to whomever she wants to?

What gives anyone the right to stop her from doing whatever she wants to with her body?

Does that seem odd to anyone else?

Do the leftists/liberals dare to use the word babies when they refer to unborn children? No, they justify their so-called beliefs by sticking to the word fetuses.

They know damn well that all of us, including them, begin our lives at conception. It will never be proven otherwise.

Some pro-abortion advocates have done a 180-degree turn around. The rest of them have to wake up and realize what an awful mistake they commit.

Hopefully not before they abort themselves completely out of the gene pool.

How a Leftist can be a Christian and love abortion eludes me.

How their churches continually let them wallow in their sins and turn a blind eye eludes me, especially the high profile Catholics like Nancy Pelosi, Joe Biden, the late (definitely not great Ted Kennedy), and so forth. Those people should have been excommunicated for their beliefs on abortion alone.

No. There is a firm pro Roe majority in the Supreme Court, and at most one vote of nine that would permit Congress to ban abortion. Together (now) with gay rights, abortion support is a price that the dependent class is required to pay in order for the liberal elite to keep their gravy train running.

I’m surprised lawyers haven’t argued that murder is nothing more than a very late term abortion.

That ancient evil didn't die and hasn't left the building, it's just become more rationally sophisticated when/if necessary.

It has never stopped lying to us and leading us astray, but it's worldly reign will be brought to an end, perhaps sooner than we think or when we least expect it.

Just make sure you are on the right side of that battle well before that ending or yours, whichever comes first.

Yes, the left is losing.

Even young liberal women are getting it -— abortion hurts, maybe forever, and YOU in addition to your baby. However, young black girls aren’t getting it and their men are pushing strongest FOR abortion (to the girls they get pregnant). We need more ways to reach young black girls.

What I want them to know: that guy who just sweet talked you into bed? Well, he would have slept with any of these women (then show pics of random girls) instead of you. Yeah, sure, maybe you are cuter or nicer, but he just wanted to put “it” somewhere. You did nothing worth anything to “get” him. When your friends brag about who they have “done,” be PROUD of doing NO ONE - tell them that instead, you were studying for your pilot’s, or real estate, or manicurist’s license, and you passed! Tell them you were hiking up a beautiful hill, you were composing a song, you learned how to surf / play tennis / play the drums. THOSE ARE THINGS SQUIRRELS IN HEAT CANT DO. Those are actual achievements. ANY YOUNG WOMAN - and some not so young - could have gotten that young stud into bed.

Of course the left is losing. As long as conservatives are keeping their babies, while liberals are aborting, sterilizing and sodomizing themselves out of existence, the nation will naturally become more conservative, and more pro-life.

Videos of babies in the womb should be required as part of biology or health class. Young people of both sexes should be made aware of the consequences of sex. Young men need to realize that they are supposed to be the protectors of women and children.
