Kirsten Powers: I Donít Stand With Wendy Davis
The Daily Beast ^ | July 2 | Kirsten Powers

Posted on 07/02/2013 7:40:21 AM PDT by Hojczyk

If the majority of Americans oppose elective late-term abortion, why do we have Davis complaining to CBS’s Bob Schieffer that the male politicians who are championing the late-term abortion ban are “bullying women”? Maybe it’s she who is bullying the rest of us into supporting a view that is mocked by scientific advancement; namely 3-D sonograms. Maybe we should be thankful for the men and wonder what is wrong with the women who think protecting the right to abort your baby for any reason up to the 26th week is a “human right.”

Human-rights movements have traditionally existed to help the voiceless and those without agency gain progressively more rights. Yet in the case of abortion, the voiceless have progressively lost rights at the hands of people who claim to be human-rights crusaders. Abortion-rights leaders have turned the world upside down. They want us to believe that a grown woman is voiceless, that she has less agency than the infant in her womb who relies on her for life. A woman has so little agency, we are told, that she is incapable of getting an abortion before the fifth month of her pregnancy. To suggest she should do so is a “war on women.” It’s an insult to women dressed up as “women’s rights.”

On ABC’s This Week, Peggy Noonan responded to the chants of “I stand with Wendy” by noting, “What she is ... standing for is something we would recognize as infanticide, late-term abortion, the taking of a little child’s life.” Standing for that is not heroic, and it is not something to be cheered.

She used to be an atheist and is now some form of Christian. That might have some bearing on her changing stances.

I remember when Kirsten made me mad everytime she opened her mouth. I think she has changed...because she articulates her point of view too well not to believe what she is saying. Just my opinion.

I added some additional words in bold I wish she had included for greater accuracy:

Human-rights movements have traditionally existed to help the voiceless and those without agency gain progressively more of our God given rights taken away and withheld from us by a tyrannical government.

Yep, progressives have turned Liberty into License. In regards to abortion, a license to kill.

The "War on Women" is a fabrication, but there is a war on unborn babies where there are actual casualties and deaths.

Good for Kirsten.

NOT wanting to murder Babies in the womb is a good bench mark to have that too many never even come close to meeting.

I am Proud for you Kirsten.

Who stands behind Windy? The answer is simple: no one with a modicum of goodness and sanity!

Bravo for Kirsten who has always seemed to me to be more of a moderate on issues that demand comment by a person possessing a working brain and a belief that God and goodness are involved in the recognition of evil.
