Aborting a Baby at Full Term “No Different than Digging up a Tomato Seed”

A liberal’s response to the following question will help explain why Democrat Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz believes it’s OK to abort a 7 pound, fully developed baby. Here is the question asked by PolitiChicks own Ruthie Thompson:

“So, since you are pro-abortion, do you think it OK for a woman to abort her baby minutes before its birth? Just curious, when does the “clump of cells” become a baby? After it is born?”

Here is the answer given by a declared “Liberal and Feminist”:

“Really, R U THAT DUMB! If ya plant a seed before it becomes a plant, it dies, you pulled it or a dog dug it up. Did that PLANT GET MURDERD? Get real, U R A S%*#Disturber, LMAO Stop harassing these people, WHO DO YA THINK YOU R???!!! LOOK IT UP, GOOGLE IT!!! EWW! Like, SHUTUP! LOL! Eggs seeds, some don’t make it here, ya know, KCCO! Sheesh lady! CHILAXXXX! DAMN, I feel bad if you have a husband, for him!!! Back Down!!! Dang! LOL!”

Aside from all of the grammar, spelling, and general poor literacy, the true sad nature of this reply is that this liberal has taken the approach that something like a tomato seed and a human fertilized egg are the same from start to finish. This person has declared that a baby at 7 or 8 (or in the case of my son 10 pounds 5.2 ounces) is the same as a tomato seed just before it pops out of the ground.

Your basic garden variety tomato seed germinating. (These are on a paper towel.)

Just for a pictorial comparison here are the two items at the moment when they were either born or about to be “born”.






Shannon Grady’s son

This is my son, about 5 minutes after he was born. It is clear how similar the two living beings are right? Yes, that was an obvious attempt at pure sarcasm. Please excuse me for that moment of disdain for the ignorance of those on the left, on matters of humans and plant life.

I wish I could say that the ignorance of the left, on the life of a baby, ends with this as the dumbest thing ever posted, but there are too many out there competing for that prize. An article on Alternet.org by Valerie Tarico, listed her 10 reasons for supporting abortions. I will not traumatize you by posting all 10 of them here but you can click on the link if you wish. However, here are a few of the points Tarico lists in her defense of murdering babies.

I’m pro-abortion because being able to delay and limit childbearing is fundamental to female empowerment and equality.

Well, I do not agree that being able to abort a baby has in any way empowered women or made us equal. The hard truth is that we are NOT equal and we are never going to be equal. Let’s take that word out of the conversation about men and women and just leave it in math where it makes sense. 2 + 2 = 8 – 4. A man will never be equal to a woman nor will a woman ever be equal to a man. Now, this is NOT to say that a man is more or that a woman is more than the opposite sex. We are just unique and wonderfully made to perform gloriously different roles in life. Frankly, I have no desire to be the “same/equal” as my husband or any other man.

I’m pro-abortion because I take motherhood seriously…The idea that women should simply go with it when they find themselves pregnant after a one-night stand, or a rape, or a broken condom completely trivialized motherhood.

This one made me want to scream at my monitor but I did not because I’m more mature and I didn’t want to scare my son. However, I am adopted which means my mother made a rational decision that she wasn’t ready to be a mother. She is a hero in my book and her pregnancy (at the hands of a rapist, a broken condom, or a one-night stand) did not in any way trivialize motherhood. My mother has been anything but trivial in my life and I cannot imagine a world were either the Mother who raised me or the mother who birthed me did not exist. I am proud of her wise decision to allow me to have life.

This statement is the most heinous and narcissistic of all the comments Tarico made in her list of 10. In one single point, she has attacked every mother who gave birth to a child that was conceived out of wedlock, out of a rape, after a one night stand, after a failure of birth control, or when it was not planned period. She has signaled to ALL of those mothers that they have “trivialized motherhood!” How dare they decide to raise a baby born of those circumstances! As an elitist, Tarico is making it clear that only the wealthy, educated, and well planned family should be honored. Females should only be empowered when you fit her world view of qualified.

I’m pro-abortion because I believe in mercy, grace, compassion, and the power of fresh starts.

I am not going to list all the Biblical contradictions that exist in this one statement as I think it would turn this from an article to a novel. It is suffice to say that she has no idea of mercy, grace, compassion, or the power of a fresh start, as outlined by Christ. Pray for this woman and all those on the left who think there are words to justify the murder of innocent babies. I loved my son from the moment he was conceived. We spent enough time at the clinic trying to have him that it made my day when that little stick said, “Pregnant”! He may have only been the size of a dot on this page, but he already owned my entire heart.
