We’re Off to See…

January 19, 2009

The tens of thousands of people who are converging on Washington, DC to commemorate the anniversary of the Supreme Court decision, Roe v. Wade. Should be interesting.

You will see more about this over the coming months from me, but isn’t this interesting:

  • Planned Parenthood’s clinics are usually located in economically depressed communities.
  • Planned Parenthood’s clinics are usually located near concentrations of African-American households of lesser economic means.
  • Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, was a avid supporter of eugenics. Eugenics is the “science” of attempting to improve the human race by careful selection of those who mate and produce offspring. Guess who Marge didn’t want to have out there breeding? that’s right, Black Man: YOU.
  • Planned Parenthood has been responsible for the majority of the 50,000,000 children killed through abortion since 1973 in the United States.
  • Planned Parenthood is the recipient of a decent chunk of federal funding for its efforts (of course *none* of those funds are used directly in providing access to abortion…of *course* not).

Pro-choice…pro-life…interesting choices of words. Time somebody else stood alongside the hundreds of thousands trying to rid our country of this scourge. Guess I’m up!

    As Mother Teresa of Calcutta so eloquently said: “It is a poverty to decide that a child must die so that you may live as you wish.”

    Truer words…

    But read not judgment in my words, y’all. If you have been touched by abortion, whether you have had one, or have had a partner have one, you are wounded. It’s my prayer that those wounds will heal, and I am happy to assist in the process.

    I had no *idea* what it was that I believed in when I was out there saying, “I’m personally opposed to abortion, but I would never impose my choice on anyone else.” I had this elaborate way of reasoning through things: I would only have sex with someone with whom I was willing to raise a child if necessary; I would never push an abortion on anyone; I would offer to marry any woman who became pregnant by me. And Thank god I never had to actually face those choices.

    But O my God, how many people did I make feel OK about the “choice” to kill their child? How many did I encourage to “take care of their problem because it could ruin their career”? My fellow 2d LT at Ft. Sill; other girls I knew in high school. My very attitude of acceptance was damaging, because it legitimized a choice to *kill* an innocent human being!

    And those who think that it really doesn’t have an effect have obviously never been touched by it. Abortion can have effects two and three people removed from the mother who is violated, and the child who is killed.

    But who knew?

    Now YOU know.

    “It is a poverty to decide that a child must die so that you may live as you wish.”

    Truer words…
