MSNBC Host: Thank God and Country Abortion Was There to Save Me
Townhall.com ^ | January 28, 2013 | Katie Pavlich

We're used to MSNBC's Toure saying outlandish things, but his latest commentary in celebration of the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade is by far the worst. During a segment last week, Toure went on what he called an abortion rant in which he thanked God and country abortion was there to "save him" at a time when taking care of a baby and becoming a father would have been inconvenient for him. He also refers to abortion as a "safety net."

Got that? Toure was willing to end the life of an unborn child so his own life could remain convenient and less responsible. He's proud of it, too. His argument is similar to that of the one made in Salon last week titled, "So what if abortion ends a life?"

I never wavered for a moment in the belief that I was carrying a human life inside of me. I believe that’s what a fetus is: a human life. And that doesn’t make me one iota less solidly pro-choice.

I would put the life of a mother over the life of a fetus every single time — even if I still need to acknowledge my conviction that the fetus is indeed a life. A life worth sacrificing.

The good news is, hundreds of thousands of people were in Washington D.C. last week marching for life and sent a message that all life should be cared for and protected.

“...he thanked God and country abortion was there to “save him” at a time when taking care of a baby and becoming a father would have been inconvenient for him.”

But the little fairy had plenty of time to screw? Wonder how he would have felt if his dad had the same philosophy?

A: Imagine your arms and legs being cut off and brain sucked out. Yeah, that’s how you would have felt.

“I would put the life of a mother over the life of a fetus every single time”

I hope that argument was actually about weighing life versus life. Almost always, however, it is the convenience of the mother versus the life of the child, in which case right and wrong are manifest.

A life worth sacrificing.

This, FReepers, is the left. They do not cherish life, and any life that gets in their way is "A life worth sacrificing." You hear it in their comments about NRA members, banker, "the rich", etc. The sooner we as a country realize this, the quicker we can fix the problem.

These are the people whom we will someday be fighting. Obviously they have no compunction at all for slaughtering children.

pro-abortion butt-wipe A$$holes like this guy considers unborn babies nothing more than a hindrances to be disposed of. Hey jerk, wait until the child you did keep becomes a teenager, you’ll probably want to kill them too. At least the US has all the illegals babies to help fill the void left by all the killing of the American citizen’s babies.

If Japanese soldiers were still catching babies on their bayonets, these folks would be cheering them on. It makes the crocodile tears they're shedding for the victims of Sandy Hook even more sickening.

He and the baby momma killed his child. The abortionist was merely a facilitator. I can’t imagine celebrating the abortion/annihilation/destruction/murder of your own child.

I highly doubt that God played into it. Not in something like this.

He shows no concern over the affects on the baby’s mother. I bet she’s not on TV. Let’s hear from her.

There is no such thing as a "pro-choice man". Men protect women and children ... sometimes at the cost of their own lives. There's no such thing as a "pro-choice boy", either. Boys aspire to be men.

No, these pro-choice creatures are neither boys nor men ... they are simply rutting animals (or demons), devoid of any trace of humanity. I have more respect for most male animals, than I do for these pro-choice creatures.

Correction accepted!

I’d add that another reason there should be no “pro-choice” boys is that boys should be so busy getting covered in mud and setting things on fire that it never occurs to them to think about reproduction. (If they wonder where the new brother came from, they can learn, “He came from God, sweetie, just like you did.”)

Aw, the little fluffy things are so cute! They’ll be nesting here in just a couple of weeks. Last year, there was a pair with a nest on a landscaped median in the Walmart parking lot. Safe from coyotes, dogs, and snakes, at least.

You mean you never heard of Katie Pavlich?

Journalist Katie Pavlich arrived on the political scene in Washington DC in 2010 ready to challenge the status quo. As news editor for Townhall.com and a contributing editor to Townhall Magazine, Pavlich has focused attention on topics that many inside the beltway would rather forget or ignore such as illegal immigration, bias in education and the Second Amendment. She has shared her conservative perspective on multiple media venues including, Fox News, MSNBC and Fox Business, in addition to a host of national and local radio shows. Pavlich’s deep love of the outdoors and respect for firearms are rooted in the formative experiences of growing up in the mountains of northern Arizona, rafting the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon, and hunting big game with her father in the forests and deserts that Barry Goldwater called home. She is also the author of the New York Times Best Seller Fast and Furious: Barack Obama’s Bloodiest Scandal and Its Shameless Cover-Upand a graduate of the University of Arizona.>Source

Or do you mean Touré?

I've read about him especially in articles in NewsBusters.org

on second thought, maybe it’s just as well for someone like that not to procreate. Ever.

Had a chat with a young woman being indoctrinated in the local school collective.

I asked her if she realized that abortion kills a living human being.

She said “yeah, it’s no big deal.”

I asked her if she had ever seen photos of these murdered babies and if she could not recognize them as murdered human beings.

She said that the school showed them a video of an abortion. The video plainly showed the arms and legs being torn from the baby and squirted into a receptacle by the sucking machine.

She said they were told, “See? Just body parts. No big deal.”

I told her the Nazis used to show their children films of mass executions of the Jews and Gypsies. They would show them liked up in front of trenches and machine gunned; men, women, and children, young and old alike. And the Nazi children were told, “See? Just Jews. No big deal.”

He must be referring to the other 9000 people who could have done this job better than he does, except they were all aborted.

But not terribly cuddly ... and if you try, Mr. & Mrs. Goose will move to intercept, flapping their wings and hissing all sorts of horrible goose-curses at you. We humans could stand to learn a thing or two from them.

Best to leave them be.

That line of argument strikes me as unintentionally dangerous, that the soul of an aborted child is within the care of the Lord.

Carry that logic out. An aborted child, having committed no sin, goes to Heaven, yes? Yet through life, you stand the possibility of losing that chance due to your own actions. So couldn’t a mother assuage her guilt in this manner? “My baby’s going to Heaven; he’ll be happier this way!” Ultimately, by this logic, you conclude that abortion is a charitable act of mercy.

And so does Satan smile with glee.

So clearly, ‘aborted children go to Heaven’ is a false premise.

More confirmation of what I’ve always believed, i.e., that feminism was/is actually almost more beneficial for the men than the women. It’s allowed them to shirk their responsibilities in general. They have a free ride when it comes to indiscriminate sex, and don’t have to take responsibility as fathers, via abortion. They don’t have to be responsible as providers, as feminism made women believe they’re nothing unless they take men’s jobs in the workplace and abandon their roles as wives and homemakers. How is that not great for men?

Don’t thank God. Do you think God is happy you killed a person who he created in his image? I think Lucifer is who you are really looking to thank, and I’m sure he says you’re welcome.
