A Word About Abortion

In the last couple of weeks, a group called Live Action has come out with three videos exposing the practice of aborting babies because of their gender.  The videos are definitely worth watching.




It’s so sick to me, that anyone could carry a child long enough to be able to tell what gender they are, and then choose to kill them because they aren’t happy with the child’s gender.  At 18 weeks of pregnancy, many women can feel their baby move.  The baby also has arms, legs, internal organs, bones, muscles, eyes, nose, mouth, ears, and maybe even some hair.

You can read about how baby has developed at 18 weeks on Baby Center.

I don’t understand how this is allowed.  The pro-abortion people often say abortion is a women’s health issue.  How is this in any way a health issue??  Killing a child for the sake of killing because you don’t like the baby’s gender?!  This is beyond horrific to me!

I wonder if the people who choose to do this really value the children they choose to let live.  And, at what point does the baby become a valued member of their family?  I mean, if you can just kill the baby, when they are clearly a baby, where do you draw the line?

And, these are some of the same people who, rightly, get upset because people in some parts of the world do kill their babies after they are born if they are girls.  Of course that is heinous and horrific!  I have to ask though, at what point does it become wrong to kill a child?

My answer is that it is always wrong!  There is never, ever a point where it’s OK to have an abortion.  People can debate “when life starts” all they want, but I want to put it to you like this:

If scientists discovered a once celled life form on another planet, everyone would be very excited about the new life we’ve found.  And they should be.  So, why don’t we value human beings the same way?

And why is the baby not considered alive when it comes to abortion, but if someone were to kill a pregnant woman, they would be charged with 2 counts of murder?

Many abortion providers fight against ultrasound laws.  Why?  Because they know that many women will choose not to have an abortion when they see a beating heart and a baby’s body.  When you can see your baby’s heart beating at 7 weeks, there is no doubt that is a living being.

I’ve never understood the mentality of having an abortion.  To me, that baby is a life.  And let me add, this is not a religious issue.  This is a human issue.  A life is a life!  Period.

I wish people who are so quick to run to Planned Parenthood for abortions would consider the many loving couples that do all they can and simply can’t have children of their own.  While some women are quick to kill their babies because they are inconvenient or the wrong gender, there are so many who would do anything to have a child.  There are many families who would gladly adopt the baby these women are so eager to dispose of.

Like I said, I’ve just never understood what could make having an abortion ok with people.  It makes absolutely no sense to me.

They say it’s a health issue, or a women’s right’s issue.  But, what about the health of the baby?  What about the rights of the baby?  And, what about some of the fathers that fight against a woman having an abortion?  What about their rights?

I believe abortion is the most selfish act.  If you don’t want a baby, don’t have sex.  If that’s too hard for you, use some protection.  It’s really not that difficult.  Be responsible.  And, if you do find yourself pregnant, there is always adoption.  You don’t have to kill the baby.  There are people just waiting and waiting to give that baby a loving home and family.

I’m going to need someone to explain this to me.  Seriously.  And, I guess I should specify.  I would like a democrat to explain this to me.  I honestly would, because it just doesn’t make sense to me.  I’m not looking for a fight, just a simple explanation.

Ok, this is what I fail to grasp.

In New York City, the liberal government wants to ban the sale of large sugary drinks.  It’s supposed to help people be healthier.  Apparently, people aren’t capable of making their own choices when it comes to what they drink.  And, it’s not just large sugary drinks.  Trans-fats, too.  And even lunches children bring to school from home are being monitored.  All under the guise of making sure we stay healthy.  So, just to be clear, they believe the government has the right to regulate what you consume.  Do I have that correct?

Next, liberals fight for abortion rights.  Shoot, Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider, just endorsed Barack Obama and donated $1.4 million to his campaign.  Liberals and the abortion industry seem to go together like peanut butter and jelly.  They fight for the “right” of women to have abortions.  For women to be able to “choose.”  After all, they argue, it’s a woman’s body, and she should decide what happens with it.  Do I have that right?

I’d hate to be going on wrong information here.


Why is it not OK for the government to tell a woman what she can do with her body, but it is OK for the government to tell her what she can eat or drink (which, I think would be considered what she can do with her body)?

Is anyone else confused by this?

I find it awfully hypocritical that liberals can fight for abortions under the guise of “it’s my body and I can do what I want,” but they feel perfectly justified and logical in dictating what people can and can’t eat and drink.

So, it’s OK to kill babies, but not to drink large sodas?

Just looking for some clarification and reasoning here.

It’s been a while since I’ve posted, and that’s for a couple reasons.  The first, I’ve been really super busy.  Second, sometimes words seem inadequate to express my thoughts on certain things, generally politically.  But, there are just way too many things going on that I’d like to comment on, so I’m going to touch on them today. 

First, what seems to have become a big story:  Sarah Palin vs. David Letterman.  I find it ridiculous that Letterman would joke about a 14year old (and yes, it was the 14 year old daughter not the 19 year old) girl being sexually assaulted.  I find it ridiculous that Letterman would joke and call Gov. Palin “slutty.”  On this, I have two questions.  1.  What would have been the repercussions if a conservative comedian made those kind of jokes about liberals, say Hillary and Chelsea Clinton, or the Obamas?  There would have been extreme outrage.  (And let me just say the jokes were distasteful, and I would think the same regardless of who the jokes were about.)  However, because the jokes were about conservative Governor Sarah Palin and her family, there are just excuses being made, none of which I buy, by the way.  It is absurd the extreme double standard that exists in mainstream media.  Of course that is nothing new, but it’s still irritating.  2.  What would Dave say if someone made jokes like that about his child or wife?

Second, the elections in Iran.  Initially, I favored the defeat of Ahmadinejad because I thought the contender, Mousavi, would be better on international issues.  However, I don’t think there would be much difference between the two as far a international policy.  However, I still think Mousavi would be great for the country because he supports more freedoms for the people of Iran, and he has a great deal of support from the citizens in Iran.  And, personally, I think any steps toward freedom are good, and in a country like that, they will be small steps.  Now, this morning, it’s coming out that Ahmadinejad has been declared the winner of the election.  The results are highly contested and controversial.  This was supposed to be a very close race, and it seems astounding that he would loose by such a huge margin, let alone in his own home town.  People have taken to the streets in protest, and frankly, that’s a great thing to see in a country so tightly ruled.  The Interior Ministry of the country has blocked communications, including text messaging, and pulled newspapers from the stands.  So, we actually know more here, than the people in Iran do.  Something is foul about all this, to be sure. 

What next?  Ah, yes, North Korea.  First of all, I think we can all agree that Kim Jong-Il is completely crazy.  The idea of this guy being in charge of weapons (more…)

Jerk of the Week

Along with the hero of the week, this week I have to include an entry on Jerk of the Week.
Jerk #1 is NBC News! It is utterly despicable that they would run the video of the crazy lunatic killer at Virginia Tech! First of all, it was only 2 days after the attack. If they had to run it, why so soon? Why not let the nation, and especially the families of the victims, to mourn for a while first? Second, they are giving the guy just what he wanted, fame. They are playing right into his hands. They are also paving the way for those other sickos out there that think they might want to do the same thing. They send the message that if you do this kind of thing, you will get fame and glory.
Their whole reason for airing this, over and over again I might add, is pure and simple ratings. They may claim that this was a hard decision, but I don’t buy it! They aired it only a couple hours after receiving it. That is hardly time to make such a “difficult decision!”
I can’t believe that they could be so amazingly callus! Well, actually I can. This is what the left-wing media does. They exploit for their own gain. It is just sick what they have done!

Applauds to the families of the victims that were going to be on the Today Show this morning, but backed out after NBC aired this! I wouldn’t go on any NBC show after such a blatant disregard for the feeling of those affected.
Applauds also to those stations that did not air this garbage! I think all the television networks aired it, but many radio shows did not. Applauds to Neal Boortz, Rush Limbaugh, and Sean Hannity, who refused to air any of the audio.

Jerk #2 is the crazy liberals who are against the Supreme Court decision to uphold the ban on partial birth abortions. I don’t understand how anyone, regardless of their stance on abortion, could be in favor of this. Partial birth abortion is probably the most heinous things I’ve ever heard of! It is absolutely sick, and anyone who would oppose a ban on it is also sick. I would go so far as to say that if they are against this ban, then they are in favor of murdering children. That’s what this is. If you are unfamiliar with the procedure, look it up. It is disgusting!
