The subject of abortion, albeit a heart wrenching and gruesome subject, is not complicated. The first right we all have is the right to life and the evidence that we all have the right to life is written in the first sentence of the second paragraph of the Constitution of the United States of America:
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
The words are plain and simple, clear and concise, that all Americans are to be legally, politically, socially and morally guaranteed the right to life. Since we are created with the unalienable right to life and because life begins at conception, then here you have it–the unpretentious, forthright and honest answer to legal abortion is “no”.
A recent Pro-life display on the campus grounds of Winthrop University in South Carolina prompted an angry response from the Pro-abortion group of the same student body. The feminists in the latter group are a walking and talking example of what Kevin Fobbs at the Free Patriot writes about when he states, “It just goes to show you that a college education does not equal intelligence or decency after you see what these moronic students took part in.”
The Republican students were bound with decency to honor the souls of dead infants of South Carolina, babies that were never allowed to be born, and give them the respect of acknowledging their short but meaningful life. This visual display created a woeful memory that lingered in the air as students walked past their exhibit and took pause, to imagine.
These conservative young women “planted 3,000 pin and green flags to represent 18,933 aborted children in the area since Roe v Wade in 1973”. Their intent was to step in line with the steady pressure of resistance to abortion that is seeping into the moral fiber of our country. The nobility of the flags under the midday sun was affecting testimony to the heinous results of the legal practice of abortion. The sight of such a disturbing loss of life covered the spectators with a blanket of sadness that angered Winthrop’s feminists.
The Feminist students created a stirring response of their own when they displayed their ‘Abortion 360’, replacing the flags with wire coat hangers. Whether the display is considered distasteful or not, their display is most definitely not honest. I say the feminists in South Carolina need to get a grip and tell the truth. If their plight is to remind the voting public of the mortality rate before abortion became a legal Holocaust, then be honest and integral with your coat hanger count.
For each and every woman that sought out an illegal abortion and died in its path, her baby died too.
Why is there a respect for the mother who passed away during an illegal abortion at her own hands, but there is no recognizing the life of the baby? It is because the liberal left still professes an unborn baby does not count as a human being. People like Professor Peter Singer, “the Ira W. DeCamp Professor of Bioethics at Princeton University’s Center for Human Values” who thinks we draw the line a human being a few months after an infant is born. The skewed liberal mindset is that abortion has nothing to do with systematically snuffing out the most innocent and pure being known to mankind. Instead they somehow think abortion infringes on a woman and her ‘reproductive rights’….whatever that means. There is no such thing as ‘reproductive rights’ but there is most certainly a right to life.
So regarding the wire coat hanger count I will do the math for you: One and one still equals two. I went to school before Common Core mathematics, so I know that the death of a mother and her baby add up to two coat hangers, not one. If the creators of the Abortion 360 display were out for an exhibit of irreproachable fairness they should have planted two wire hangers for each spot in the lawn.
I will also say to all of the feminists that if you really care about women do, talk to the hundreds of thousands of women who have lived a lifetime of sorrow with the imprint of their dead child’s soul on their own beating heart. Listen to some of these middle-aged women who belong to the group ‘Silent No More’ and the grief that has colored their world.
I find it interesting as well that since the time our beloved President Obama has been in office there is this continual balanced shift in public opinion about abortion. Several polls are consistent that since the spring of 2009 Americans are experiencing an awakening and gaining the power and strength to speak out. “Not only that, those who identify themselves as “pro-choice” fell dramatically in the same time period that pro-life sentiment rose.”
There is a steady drumbeat from the conservative pulse of America that is a haunting monument to millions of innocent souls, slaughtered while still in the womb. Men, women, and children, young and old, all walks of life through a beautiful blend of color and creed will not sit down and be quiet. The Pro-Life movement will not be stilled like the millions of tiny hearts that beat no more, because of abortion.
And for those of you who think legal abortion is safe, think again. Recently when Texas conservatives battled to limit abortion to the first trimester, testimony of legal abortion came to light:
“In the process, the decision discussed some of the testimonies and some of the facts related to abortion in Texas, and one thing that caught our eye was a statement saying that Planned Parenthood conceded that at least 210 women annually must be hospitalized after seeking an abortion.”
And for those of you that think legal abortion saves lives, how is that humanly possible? The process itself is the intent to kill a tiny developing infant. And perhaps just perhaps if abortion was illegal many women would make good and darn sure they did not have an unwanted pregnancy, this would save lives.
Times have changed, which is evident in the steady rise of the pro-life population. The subject has always been one of polarizing appeal with a lack luster answer. Without question most people I have ever asked has said the same wishy- washy response, ‘Oh, I would never do it but it should be legal’. Gag me. Why do people shudder and say they would never do it? I know why, because it is horrid. The left has never addressed the issue other than to plead a woman’s reproductive organs are her own. And true, they are. But again, this has nothing to do with the unborn baby’s right to life.
The federal “Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act” introduced by Congressman Trent Franks, passed the U.S. House by a margin of 228-196. Florida Senator Marco Rubio said last week that he will introduce the bill in the Democrat-controlled Senate, where it faces an uncertain future.
President Barack Obama has promised if the bill were to pass, he would veto it. Banning such abortions, he said, “shows contempt for women’s health and rights, the role doctors play in their patients’ health care decisions, and the Constitution.”
No President Obama, with all due respect, you are wrong, dead wrong just like when you voted in favor of infanticide as an Illinois Senator. Unlike many areas in the political arena, there is no wiggle room with abortion. There is no grey area or compromise. The people of our country who believe in life and who respect the words of the Constitution are growing stronger in the voice of their convictions.
Oh and by the way, just because you can’t hear the innocent soul wail as it is being violently ripped from life inside of the womb doesn’t mean he or she isn’t screaming. It is not your body. It is the baby’s body.
This is the reason for the two wire coat hangers.
