Debate moderators and reporters love to ask pro-life candidates hard questions about abortion. Curiously, they dont do the same for pro-choice candidates.
Here are 10 questions you never hear a pro-choice candidate asked by the media:
1. You say you support a womans right to make her own reproductive choices in regards to abortion and contraception. Are there any restrictions you would approve of?
2. In 2010, The Economist featured a cover story on the war on girls and the growth of gendercide in the world abortion based solely on the sex of the baby. Does this phenomenon pose a problem for you or do you believe in the absolute right of a woman to terminate a pregnancy because the unborn fetus is female?
3. In many states, a teenager can have an abortion without her parents consent or knowledge but cannot get an aspirin from the school nurse without parental authorization. Do you support any restrictions or parental notification regarding abortion access for minors?
4. If you do not believe that human life begins at conception, when do you believe it begins? At what stage of development should an unborn child have human rights?
5. Currently, when genetic testing reveals an unborn child has Down Syndrome, most women choose to abort. How do you answer the charge that this phenomenon resembles the eugenics movement a century ago the slow, but deliberate weeding out of those our society would deem unfit to live?
6. Do you believe an employer should be forced to violate his or her religious conscience by providing access to abortifacient drugs and contraception to employees?
7. Alveda King, niece of Martin Luther King, Jr. has said that abortion is the white supremacists best friend, pointing to the fact that Black and Latinos represent 25% of our population but account for 59% of all abortions. How do you respond to the charge that the majority of abortion clinics are found in inner-city areas with large numbers of minorities?
8. You describe abortion as a tragic choice. If abortion is not morally objectionable, then why is it tragic? Does this mean there is something about abortion that is different than other standard surgical procedures?
9. Do you believe abortion should be legal once the unborn fetus is viable able to survive outside the womb?
10. If a pregnant woman and her unborn child are murdered, do you believe the criminal should face two counts of murder and serve a harsher sentence?
Good list. But true they are never asked to defend their position.
Are there any restrictions you would approve of?”
...why, yes. Soda, salt, smoking, drinking, trans fats and conservatives’ voting rights.
Not just for politicians, but anyone who supports abortion
Memorize these questions - you can use them anywhere.
Better question than any of those:
“Assuming that a test is developed that allows the sexual orientation of a fetus to be determined in the womb, do you support a woman’s right to terminate a pregnancy based solely on the fact that the child will be a homosexual?”
Maybe alveda should lose the tendency to inject false racism/genocide/supremacy into the mix. Then she'll see things as they really are. Ever listen to black/latino music, alveda? How about black/latino television? Ever spend time in Middle or High Schools and observe what goes on?
Unwed black/latino youngsters have more abortions because they get pregnant more, plain and simple. There's a higher rate of pregnancy because the b/l culture openly promotes frequent sexual activity very, very often.
It has nothing to do with the supposed ‘white supremacy’ which, by the way, is a very small part of the population, if they exist at all. Grow up.
As far as I remember (and I'm no expert) the only reference I see in the Books of Moses referring to assault or injury to the unborn, is in Exodus 21:21-24, where it says that if two men are fighting and one of them hits a woman and she miscarries, if the result is just a premature birth but no further injury, the assailant shall pay such penalty as the baby's father may demand; but if the woman or baby suffers further injury the penalty shall be an eye for an eye, a life for a life, etc.
Note three things:
Where do you find your reference to different penalties based on different levels of prenatal develoment?
I'd like to look it up and study it.
First, Alveda King doesn't say that racism is the only problem. At no point does she say that cultural distortions within the black and latino communities (like casual promiscuous sex, and contempt for women) is not a problem. But you can't fault her for not laying out her total social meta-analysis every time she speaks.
Second, she's not saying the whole white society is racist. She's observing a continuities of racism at the top of the pro-depopulation elite: she often specificially refers to Planned Parenthood.
As you may know, PP was founded by a well-known in-your-face racial bigot named Margaret Sanger. It was Sanger who said
It was Sanger, in a 1939 letter to Clarence Gamble, who enthused about her 'Negro Project' with these words:
It was Sanger who courted German race-supremacists and eugenicists like Ernst Rudin to contribute to her "Birth Control Review" in the 1930's.
And even more pointedly, Sanger is a heroine to Planned Parenthood to this day. They give out awards at their annual gala Margaret Sanger fund-raising dinner. They further the aims of her propaganda. They wear Sanger T-shirts, march behind Sanger banners.
They locate 85% of their clinics (analyzed by census tract by Life Dynamics) in, or within easy walking distance of, neighborhoods with the largest Black and Latino populations.
I’ve always believed that a baby receives a soul at the instant of coneption. God knows all things.
I agree with this is well. I think the current falderal in the news over Mourdock's contention of God's will whenever a child is conceived even in a rape is further proof that the anti-life forces have no understanding nor appreciation for the wonder of human life. God both "opens and shuts the womb" (Isaiah 66:9), so I agree with Mr. Mourdock about God's will EVEN in the case of rape. He isn't saying God wills the rape, but that if a pregnancy happens from it, it is God's will for it to happen. We have many wonderful people in this world who came from that beginning, and EVERY one has a right to life no matter how he or she was conceived.
I remember learning in biology class how intricate and precise the action of conception actually is and how tiny variants can make the difference in whether or not a pregnancy ever happens. As Scripture says, "I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made. (Psalm 139:14) If more people were educated about the miracle of birth and the privilege we have been given by our Creator in that process, I think it would make a huge difference in the number of those who both think AND vote pro-life.
“10. If a pregnant woman and her unborn child are murdered, do you believe the criminal should face two counts of murder and serve a harsher sentence?”
Ask Scott Peterson if an unborn child is a human to be protected exactly like anyone else.
He is currently serving two life sentences. First degree murder for killing his wife and first degree murder for killing of the unborn child in her womb.
