Abortion's Hell's Angels?
South End (Wayne State University) ^ | 9/16/03 | Eric Czarnik

Posted on 09/17/2003 5:13:33 PM PDT by madprof98

The waiting room of a Pittsburgh clinic is covered with rows of pink paper hearts with messages on them. But it's not Valentine's Day.

"To my little angel," reads one, "You will always be my baby. I will see you in heaven, sweetheart. I love you!" This message, like the others, is addressed to a freshly aborted baby.

These paper hearts are the brainchild of the November Gang, a small network of abortion clinics who want to help women see the softer side of fetal dismemberment. Much to the chagrin of pro-life organizations, the Gang was recently profiled in Glamour magazine.

Established in November 1989, the Gang recognized how alienated some women felt when they listened to the pro-choice movement's impersonal rhetoric on abortion, which was just regarded as a surgery.

But to the Gang, choosing abortion is sort of like puberty. The process can be complicated and painful, but it's often liberating and beneficial in the end.

Before an abortion at a Gang-affiliated clinic, a counselor will ask the woman how she feels about abortion and then "echo her language" from there. If the woman uses words like "baby," the counselor won't disagree. However, if a patient calls her fetus "a bunch of cells," the Gang won't talk about "stuff that's not there," as one Texas clinic owner put it.

In other words, the objective reality of stopping an unborn child's heart is irrelevant. What is important is how the woman feels about it. And if the November Gang can gently steer her feelings toward rationalizing the abortion while erasing her guilt and worries, they have another pink heart to add on the wall.

This isn't to say the Gang forces women to abort. If the patient describes abortion as murder, the clinic will suggest that the woman wait and think about her decision.

But Gang counselors carefully direct questions in a way that could make a spin-doctor's head spin. One question they often use is, "Can you see abortion as a 'loving act' toward your children and yourself?"

And when a churchgoing young woman asked whether God will forgive her for "killing my baby," the counselor asked, "Do you think there are any things that God considers completely unforgivable?" A moment later, the woman shook her head.

(There was obviously no mention of Jesus' command in the Gospels that "You shall not put the Lord your God to the test.")

But the November Gang doesn't only rely on manipulative words. They also engage in a series of bizarre rituals that brainwash their clients into thinking that abortion is loving and compassionate.

Aside from the heart-shaped Valentines ritual, religious women are encouraged to mock Christian beliefs as they give "baptisms" to their aborted child by sprinkling holy water over its mangled corpse (euphemistically called "fetal tissue" in the Glamour article).

The Gang glows over their strategy's success. "It's wonderful to see someone, perhaps for the first time, making a choice based on love for herself and belief in herself and not simply letting life happen to her," said one member.

But life didn't just "happen" to these women. None of the women quoted in the article claimed they were raped or were in mortal danger by carrying a child. But two women said they became pregnant because the Pill failed for them.

By choosing to gamble on contraception and then consciously choosing to have sexual intercourse, these women chose to have "life" happen to themselves. But the unborn children had no choice in the matter.

In fact, for an article entitled, "Are You Ready to Really Understand Abortion," it sure doesn't go much into the actual abortion part.

It doesn't really describe how the November Gang tenderly destroys an unborn child by sucking it up in a vacuum, or how the unborn is lovingly hacked into bacon bits with a curette.

And it doesn't mention that the child's limbs begin moving at eight weeks, or that it starts leaping in the womb at 11-12 weeks, according to an article last weekend from London's Guardian newspaper.

But who can blame Glamour? Info like that might cause their readers to smear their L'Oreal.

I can't judge the November Gang on whether they think they truly care about women. But they certainly don't care about the unborn. Their "counseling," complete with its borderline human-sacrifice rituals, is more than misguided-it's satanic.

Like the serpent in the Garden of Eden, the Gang tempts a woman by assuring her, "Ye shall surely not die...ye shall be as gods." It promises godlike power to create one's own destiny through so-called "choice," even to the point of rationalizing self-interest above the concern for others.

Evil needn't manifest itself through blazing, bloody pentagrams. It manages to work quite well through pink paper hearts.

When will enough people be sick to their stomachs to realize these mother's "freedom of choice" is to unknowingly supply a black market with priceless body parts?

WHEN THE STUPID MEDIA, which is our #1 enemy and co-conspirator IN ALL OF THIS tells it like it is.

I am absolutely sickened over this. Flame away......but I don't know HOW God can bless America.

No doubt there are still plenty of college students who approve of abortion. But their numbers are definitely shrinking. The prolife movement is doing very well among the younger generation. Survivors, for instance, has been very effective in speaking to them. NARAL and NOW are losing support, and the Supreme Court is shellshocked that this issue simply won't go away, as they assumed it would when they passed Roe v. Wade and then Casey.

My impression as a long-time college professor is also that although the faculty is stuffed full of aging radical leftists, the student body is more or less normal. Some of them have never really given as much thought as they might to these issues, but they are definitely--with regretable exceptions--much less leftist than the professoriate.

"But I don't know how God can Bless America"

The day of a protective hand from Almighty God on America has long passed, unless we change course on a dime.

I shall never tire of saying: "A nation that lawfully permits the slaughter of it's unborn does not deserve prosperity."

Thank you for sharing your frustrations! Indeed, sometimes the outlook seems gloomy - but we have made significant progress. There are fewer abortion clinics today and more importantly, the attitude about abortions is shifting from a "yeah for abortions" more to an "I'm against them but don't want to be told I can't have one" attitude. That is a step in the right direction. Progress, not perfection.

Well picked up. I have worked in Security for a University for almost 20 years and have seen the student body turn from druken beer swilling Liberal louts (and that was just the women) into fairly serious, studious people. Even those studying enviromental subjects tend to be more presentable and less feral. The only groups that continue to worry me are Teaching, Social Work and the Arts and these are the very people who have the greatest influence on Democrat types.

God Bless,

Mel

The Dungster Harkin and the others you mentioned aren't moral free agents. The females might get a thrill from their rebellious behavior, but it won't last long. "Payday Someday."

It has been a long time since I have read such a hard-hitting post. Excellent job.

I thought nothing would top the pictures I saw of a funeral for a just-aborted baby. They were posted on an anti-abortion website (I forgot which one - maybe www.abortiontv.com?), and it turned my stomach. The "parents" of the murdered child posed with the body, which had been dressed up in a white dress. Thankfully, there were no close-ups of the murdered child's face.

This story is just as bad, if not worse.

With this most recent development from the demons of Hell into the demented minds of the defenders of the indefensible, we have the democrat party influence (their obsequious liberalism) once again composing an outrageous message designed to manipulate American pregnant women into hiring a serial killer to 'deal with the foreign tissue in her body'.

I witnessed Evil strutting around on the Seanate floor today and yesterday, served in full by the names Boxer, Harkin, Murray, and opposed weakly by the names Santorum, DeWine, and Brownback.

Thanks for your excellent post as usual, Marvin. What a sad state of affairs, isn't it?

A species that thinks like we do won't be around very long.

I'd like to think it goes more like "that portion of the species that thinks like they do won't be in the gene pool very long."

To quote another freeper friend;

"Respect for life is the issue from which all others flow. A politician who has no respect for the lives of the unborn has no respect for the lives of the living either. He will advocate depriving you of your freedom to increase his own power and influence, and not think twice about it. The only life he has respect for is his own, and the rest be damned"

That is so true. Explains the Democrat's policies and (sick) mindset all too well.

WELL WRITTEN.

WELL SAID.

UNWELL DISASTEROUSLY, HIDEOUSLY, HORRENDOUSLY TRAGIC.

At this rate, they WILL end up literally eating their young in our lifetime as many have had dreams and visions of. For some, it will evidently be a small step--merely a new and welcome item on the menu.

I pray to God, genuine believers are not around ATT.

Lord, God Almighty,

Please let Harkin, Murray and Boxer begin to display overtly externally all over their faces and in their lives, the hideous evil lurking so controllingly in their hearts. IF there's a remote chance they can be jerked from the jaws of hell, so be it. Based on genuine repentance, I'd be willing to forgive them.

If there's no chance, Lord, if their die has been cast and their eternal lot decided, then, please, Lord, make a spectacle of them publicly, openly before God and man. May they publicly and supernaturally demonstrate to a maximum extreme the evil lurking in their hearts and then be just as publicly and more supernaturally terminally disciplined accordingly by your Spirit and the Fire of your perfection, purity and love for all those murdered by their 'leadership' in the name of comfort and convenience.

In Jesus' Name, Amen. Let all who agree join similarly in this or a comparable prayer, Oh, Lord.
