Notice how extreme elements of the pro-abortion crowd scream loudest when some Doctor of Death gets offed? Could it be guilt? The stuck pig squeals loudest? But they insist on no reasonable regulations on abortion. Can we at least be informed when our minor daughters are seeking an abortion? No. Can we show prospective mothers an ultra-sound of their baby? Nope. Can we stop abortion as a means of choice of the sex of the baby? Ugh ugh. Can we at least protest and waive photos of aborted children so the mother can see what she is about to do? NO NO NO! Can we stop late term abortions? No way. Can we at least stop partial-birth abortions, where the babies brains are sucked out? Not a chance. So the pro-abortion crowd refused to allow reasonable regulations.
Abortion was not voted on in a republican form of democracy. It was shoved down the throats of the entire nation by a majority of the Supreme Court. Unelected former lawyers all. Who, thanks to life-time tenure and zero accountability were able to cram down our throats what a majority did not want. Eventually, a majority came to favor the Court’s decisions, true. But even then, a majority of We, The People, favored reasonable restrictions on abortion. And the extreme pro-abortion crowd, such as President Obama and Planned Parenthood, fought such restrictions every step of the way, which in effect sanctioned some of the more abhorrent abortion procedures and policies.
Late term abortions are an abomination. No reasonable person can be in favor of them. Sure, some might hold their noses and vote to allow them under cirtain extreme conditions. Or might have such an abortion themselves. But not a reasonable person who was not under duress. The extreme elements of the pro-abortion crowd supplied that duress. Thus, the pro-abortion crowd short-circuited the normal democratic process.
And then they kept up the pressure by forcing politicians to support pro-abortion judges. They forced a “litmus test” of all Justices that they favor Roe v. Wade. Even after they had a majority in favor of the right to abortion. The repeal of Roe v. Wade would not outlaw abortion. It would only throw the decision back onto the politicians, where it belongs.
The abortion on demand crowd also howled and demanded that abortion protesters not even be allowed to picket near abortion clinics. Some of our most draconian laws against free speech are directed against protesters at abortion clinics. The pro-abortion leaders, such as Teddy “Chappaquiddick” Kennedy, slander anti-abortion groups: “When we have a national organization like Operation Rescue that has as a matter of national policy firebombing and even murder, that’s unacceptable.” [Then a cowardly court threw out a slander suit against Kennedy, ruling that the slanderous “remarks about Operation Rescue were made, at least in part, to inform the public of the reasons for his position on a legislative matter.”]
They successfully sued Operation Rescue and accused them of racketeering under the RICO Act (a law which was originally intended to stop such groups as the Mafia) in 1998. Only eight years later was that jury decision over-turned by the U.S. Supreme Court, after thousands, probably millions, of dollars were spent defending themselves. The Supreme Court decision was 8-0 in favor of the anti-abortionists, a very clear signal that the entire lawsuit was spurious to begin with.
So the pro-abortionists foisted this abomination on an unwilling public, short-circuited the democratic process, refused to compromise in the least, outlawed freedom of speech against abortion clinics, and sought to criminalize abortion protesters. And the pro-abortionists did all this and more in support of an abominable practice that most moral and ethical citizens believe to be a mortal sin. And knowing that some citizens believe strongly that this abomination is worth dying to stop.
The pro-abortion crowd screams that because there are such people out there that therefore the anti-abortionists are to blame when one of them goes off. They say our words encourage them, our philosophy supports them. I say the pro-abortion crowd has it exactly backwards.
The actions of the pro-abortion crowd are responsible. President Obama calls abortion “a political decision” that is not worth killing over. Yeah, right. And slavery was just a “political decision” that wasn’t worth fighting a war over, right, Boss? When you trample on the rights of the powerless, those who cannot speak for themselves, and support a racist group such as Planned Parenthood that makes millions in the abortion racket, you have to expect that some looneys are going to kill and maim in protest. Look yourselves in the eyes, and repeat this phrase if you are one of those crazies who support abortion on demand and who refuse to allow the imposition of any reasonable restrictions on abortion: “Sorry, Dr. Tiller, I’m partially responsible for your death. So are you, by the way Dr. Tiller.” No, stop squealing like stuck pigs. Admit your culpability. At least go to this web site to learn more about the procedures that you so adamently suppurt.
