Just a few observations:
For all the howling about the "patriarchy", the abortion industry got its start keeping someone's "good name" from being sullied by the presence of little bastards running around, not to mention the likely social and fiscal inconvenience of some extramarital progeny. It was a quicker, less messy (socially) alternative to sending the little darling who had been putting on weight out of state to 'stay with their relatives' for a while, or off to the convent for the duration of an obvious 'condition' that was often a cause for social embarrassment for the rich, powerful, or those who wanted to preserve a squeaky clean image (an image that was a lie, obviously), in the days when pregnancy out of wedlock was considered a big deal and when bastard children complicated matters of estate and inheritance. (talk about "patriarchy"!)
In a time when over 40% of children are born out of wedlock, with rates as high as 70% in some demographic groups, that excuse really no longer exists.
Of all the animals, mammals in particular, and marsupials, which nurture their young, humans (supposedly the most evolved) have fought for the survival of their young. Mothers are famous for their ferocity in the defense of their offspring (never get between mama bear and the cubs!). Such is the natural order of things.
From a human nature standpoint, we have finally created a society where the fundamental nurturing instincts of the mother have been so overturned by lies and propaganda that over a million mothers a year choose to have their infant torn limb from limb, ripped to shreds, and/or chemically poisoned in ways we would not kill a convicted mass murderer, literally torn from their mother's womb. These horrors aren't being perpetrated by Concentration Camp denizens in medical experiments which would be rewarded with a noose to popular acclaim, but by nicely dressed people in nondescript clinics, paid for by people who have no choice but to render their taxes which are diverted so the abortionists can render children.
That we are even having this discussion is a measure of the depths to which our culture has sunk, that anyone could argue for such practices as a "right" is an indicator of a sickness which would guarantee the extinction of any other species.
Calling this a "Choice" is like saying that getting a room high up in a hotel and shooting up a concert crowd or setting off a bomb in a subway is a "choice", yet when that happens, people are screaming for the equipment used to be banned and surviving perpetrators to be hunted down, not howling they had a "right to choose" and blather about "their body", despite the obvious consequences for the other person involved. It's like arguing Mr. Paddock had a right to do with his trigger finger what he wanted to? After all, it's his body.
The reply, of course, is that other lives were involved, other bodies would suffer damage. Look
, and you tell me there aren't in this case, too (WARNING
, graphic image
). Maybe that's a chicken wing and not a human hand. Oh, wait..
For all the howling about separating children from foreign lands from their families, the Left argues vehemently for a "right" to separate American children from themselves (dismemberment) and their mothers (abortion). Definitely the stuff of logical malfunction.
One of the defining aspects of Western Culture is that we value human life. We don't do human sacrifices on pyramid peaks, we don't throw virgins to the fire god, we hold murder to be a most heinous crime. We naturally are revolted, even after decades of media desensitization, by the sight of dismembered blood and bodies, the smells of humans burned, of blood, of bodies ripped apart. The toughest veteran firefighter will vomit at the scene of a really bad car accident, the emotional scars of battlefield injuries and damaged bodies haunt many of our veterans, yet somehow it is to be considered normal for a mother to be indifferent to the fate of her own child within the sanctity of her womb, the one place that child should be safest. Biologically, she is constructed to protect that offspring, it floats in a sac filled with fluid, one of the most efficient shock absorbing systems ever, every normal instinct is for the preservation of the future of her bloodline and the species. There is nothing normal about destroying that offspring, especially for something as inconsequential as convenience. Nor is there anything normal, by Western standards, in men or other women trying to convince other people that this is normal, any more than it is normal to wrap your child (from a Western Civilization viewpoint) in a vest full of explosives and put them on the bus. This is a sickness that reaches every level of a culture, and when the courts, the protectors of the innocent, the guardians of our natural Rights, rule otherwise to legitimize this slaughter, they rule against Nature, the most fundamental of Rights (Life!), and the very foundations of our culture.
But this is just another unnatural act the courts have decreed to be okay.
The time has come to choose, and the nature of that choice is ever more evident. Our culture, our nation's foundations, and your eternity hang in the balance.
