Skip to comments.NOW President: Babies Wouldn’t Die So Much If We’d Just Kill Them Before They Died
Posted on 05/14/2014 3:36:58 PM PDT by NYer
National Organization for Women (NOW) president Terry ONeill published an editorial on the Huffington Post today entitled, Abortion, Like Contraception, Is Essential Health Care That Saves Lives.
Let that sink in for a second. A procedure thats taken over 50 million lives in the U.S. alone since 1973 . . . saves lives.
How does ONeill get to the conclusion promised in the title, that abortion care saves lives? Easy! She ignores 50% of the people involved in every abortion.
The first place she looks for saved lives from abortion is high infant mortality rates. Theyd be so much lower if more of those pesky underprivileged women would just get more abortions. Thats right, her solution to high infant mortality rates is to kill the babies before they get the chance to die!
From the article (emphasis mine):
We have a premature birth crisis in this country that can be directly linked to our failure to provide adequate contraception and abortion care. About half of pregnancies in the U.S. each year are unintended, and for those women who carry their pregnancies to term (more than half do), the prognosis is anything but great. They not only experience higher rates of premature birth, but also are more likely to have inadequate prenatal care, low birth weight and small size infants, maternal depression and anxiety.
From a public health point of view, abortion care, no less than contraception, is an essential measure to prevent the heartbreak of infant mortality . . .
To avoid the heartbreak of infant mortality, we should just kill the infants before anyone starts keeping statistics about them.
Again, from the article (emphasis mine):
. . . as more states like Texas and North Carolina restrict access to abortion care, more women are dying in childbirth or pregnancy, and more infants are not surviving to their first birthday.
Theyre not surviving to their first birthday because you didnt even give them the chance to be born, Terry!
Killing the poor would be an efficient way to reduce poverty, disease, recidivism, and any number of other problems, except that its wrong to kill the people who have problems in order to solve problems!
ONeill mentions maternal mortality, which I wont address in detail because its never right to kill someone in order to solve your problems, and so abortion cannot be a solution to the problem of maternal mortality. But it should be noted that the data actually shows that direct abortion is never necessary to save a womans life.
But, at its heart, ONeills piece is an attempt to make the phrase abortion care happen. Planned Parenthood and their ilk have been using the phrase for a while, though apparently not everyone is getting on board with this bit of Newspeak, or ONeills piece would not have been necessary.
Abortion care is yet another attempt to shift focus off the human being whos being killed in every single abortion procedure. Abortion can only be called care if youre not thinking about the person whos being dismembered.
But controlling the narrative is at least half the battle in a culture war, so its imperative that we who recognize the inherent value of the child in the womb combat their twisting of language.
Dont let the phrase abortion care go by unchallenged if its used in your presence. All thats required for a pernicious phrase like abortion care to slip into the American lexicon is for you and me to say nothing.
Ask about what care is being provided to the child. Show the images of abortion victims to abortion care advocates, and ask what kind of care they would call that. Ask how killing a child so it doesnt die solves the problem of infant mortality.
But whatever you say, keep the focus on the child in the womb, whose life is an end in itself, not a tool to be used to fix statistics we dont like.
THAT is what militant feminazis are like.
Serial murderer by proxy.
Women with a history of one or more abortions are at significantly higher risk for premature birth with subsequent pregnancies.
Bingo. They have no conscience.
These statements are why the left almost always wins. They succeed in using language that directs attention away from the murder of infants.
40+ years of sickness
And getting worse
How about someone kill this NOW President..and we can discuss it later..sound like a plan
She’s a degenerate ghoul.
Many people feel the same way that NOW does. They feel that abortion is good and a women’s right and that anyone who disagrees with them hates women. They will attack anyone who disagrees with them.
Why don’t we just gas girls and throw them into ovens as soon as they begin to menstruate. That will really save time.
I want to see liberals get slaughtered in the same manner they prefer babies to be killed in the womb, see how they like it..notice the ones who love abortion so much have themselves, never been aborted
“Shes a degenerate ghoul.”
YES, and no surprise that she’s also a lawyer! (But I repeat myself;)
Liberals wouldn’t Die So Much If Wed Just Kill Them Before They Died
