FOR UNBORN FEMINISTS
By: Matt Barber
When youre on the wrong side of Planned Parenthood, youre on the right
side of history.
The lefts disingenuous and intellectually lazy war on women talking
points have blown up in its face. Most polls show Mitt Romney fast gaining on President Obama with female voters. Some polls even
show him pulling ahead.
Still, its the multi-billion dollar abortion industry that may just give Romney
the boost he needs to take a permanent lead. Just days after pro-life investigative group Live Action released devastating evidence that Planned Parenthood
systemically engages in the grisly practice of sex-selection abortion a charge to which it now admits
the cash-flush abortion Goliath has done Obama an ironic disservice by endorsing his
re-election bid. The group has additionally launched a $1.4 million advertising campaign
to smear Mitt Romney.
Lets put aside for a moment the scandalous disclosure that while Planned
Parenthood receives over 350 million per annum in your taxpayer dollars, it nonetheless
spends millions engaging in partisan politicking for the DNC. Troubling as that may be,
utterly horrific is the revelation that this extremist organization which absurdly
presumes to defend womens rights has been caught red-handed
torturing little girls to death in mammas womb, simply because mamma wanted a boy.
This discovery eerily reminiscent of Communist Chinas forced one-child
sex-selection policy has shocked the conscience of an entire nation. So disturbing
are the facts that on Thursday the U.S. House of Representatives voted on the Prenatal
Non-Discrimination Act (PRENDA), H.R. 354, introduced by Republicans in Congress.
Unbelievably, because the bill required a two-thirds majority for passage, Democrats were
able to narrowly abort the measure by a vote of 246-168.
The legislation, which would have outlawed sex-selection abortions altogether, was also
opposed by President Obama. This comes as little surprise when you consider that, while a
state senator, Obama repeatedly fought Illinois Born Alive Infant Protection Act.
This law simply required that when a baby survives a botched abortion when she is
born alive further attempts to kill her must immediately cease, and
steps must be taken to save her life.
But according to our president leader of the
civilized world a law preventing the abortionist from finishing her off
is really designed simply to burden the original decision of the woman and the
physician to induce labor and perform an abortion.
This, coupled with Democratic support for sex-selection abortion (now on record),
represents the true war on women. This is misogyny at its deadly worst. Take
note, America: Obama and Democrats have officially endorsed the Mengelian practice of
explicitly targeting little girls over boys for live dismemberment.
Still, there is good news here. This entire saga has placed in the national spotlight
the irreconcilable incongruities central to our nations ongoing policy of legalized
abortion on demand.
Consider, for instance, that under current federal and state law, if an off-duty
abortionist if any man, for that matter physically assaults a woman and her
unborn daughter dies, that man has committed murder. Yet if mom walks into Planned
Parenthood and authorizes that same man to rip her baby girl limb-from-limb, its her
choice. First case: murder. Second case: choice. Both cases: dead
Furthermore, consider that as established by a 2006 Zogby International poll of over 30,000 Americans in 48 states
86 percent support a law banning sex-selection abortion. Doesnt it stand to
reason, then, that since the vast majority recognize the objectively reprehensible nature
of sex-selection abortion, they, too, might recognize that its equally reprehensible
for mom to have baby killed for no reason at all? This is what current law allows, without
restriction, through the ninth month.
Indeed, incongruities abound. Still, it is the indefensible nature of empty
pro-choice rhetoric that, I believe, will ultimately end legalized abortion in
America. Truth, even when buried for decades, eventually has a way of rising to the
Its inevitable. Roe v. Wade will, in time, be tossed, alongside the
slavery-justifying Dred Scott decision, exactly where both shameful scars on Lady Liberty
belong: in the trash heap of historical inhumanity.
Just as those who excused slavery are reviled by history, so, too, will be those who
called themselves pro-choice.
