Respect Life 2001
part three
They had their choice: Freedom lost!

    Privacy and choice. Those are two catchall words that couch the liberal agenda so well. The truth of the matter when it comes to abortion, it's not a private issue concerning a woman's decision. It is not our right or "choice" to decide who lives and who dies. It's like slavery -- when human beings were not considered whole persons and had no rights and were subject to the will of their owners, many played gods. So also today. Abortion is the most important issue of public principle that America faces today. Are we to be a nation under GOD with compassion, love and decency, or a barbaric nation of degeneracy, which embraces the ideology that one of our freedoms should be TO KILL, if we so choose?

    Respect for life is a principle and when women are given the power to decide if a helpless baby in their womb is going to die, then don't be so surprised when they think that a baby is subject to their will, and kill it five seconds after it's born and throw it in a dumpster, or five years after it's born. The principle of violence is the same. And don't be surprised when the killing of 1.4 million unborn babies yearly, becomes a major factor in the public's perception that life is cheap. That perception will be stored in the brain, where it will be retrieved to determine all future actions and reactions.

    Now, we have to suffer the consequences of that perception. Do you like what you hear or read when you turn on the news, or read the newspapers these days? So don't be surprised if a person's disrespect for the sanctity of life rubs off on their children, and don't be surprised when children kill children, or anyone else, who gets in their way and in general, don't be surprised at anything humans do to humans.

    Our populace has become so self-indulgent -- what's in it for me -- whatever makes me feel good -- that to kill a human being is secondary to their comfort zone.

    The pro-choice people condone the killing of unborn babies, for one reason only, and don't let anyone tell you otherwise. It's NOT because they are compassionate people and are concerned about women's health. Their motive is ulterior and selfish. Someday THEY, their DAUGHTERS, their WIVES, or their GIRLFRIENDS may want to kill their unborn baby and they want to make sure it's a "legal killing." They will NOT be inconvenienced.

    This is the bottom line and when organizations such as Planned Parenthood, NARAL, NOW and other groups tell you that they are just concerned for women's reproductive freedom and for women's health -- don't you believe them. They do NOT speak the truth. They have conned the American people. There is MUCH more suffering and deaths due to abortions on demand now, then before the infamous Roe Vs Wade decision.

    Prior to Roe Vs Wade, the pro-choicers said that thousands of women die every year from back alley coat hanger abortions, so they have to be made legal.

    The fact is, there were NOT thousands of deaths prior to Roe Vs Wade. That decision and all the suffering and deaths as a result of that decision, was built on a LIE.

    Dr. Bernard Nathanson -- who was one of the original leaders of the American pro-abortion movement and co-founder of N.A.R.A.L. (National Abortion Rights Action League), and who has since become pro-life -- admits that he and others in the abortion rights movement intentionally fabricated the number of women who allegedly died as a result of illegal abortions.

    Regarding the claim by the pro-choicers, that there were 5,000 to 10,000 deaths a year from botched abortions prior to Roe Vs Wade, Dr. Nathanson said, "I confess they were totally false, but in the "morality" of the revolution, it was a useful figure, widely accepted, so why go out of our way to correct it with honest statistics. The overriding concern was to get the laws eliminated, and anything within reason which had to be done was permissible."

    The truth is, that in 1972, the year before Roe Vs Wade, only 39 abortion related deaths were reported by emergency rooms and morgues, to the Centers for Disease Control. Currently, more women die yearly from complications of abortions, than before Roe Vs Wade.

    You would think that if pro-choicers were so concerned about women dying from botched abortions, that they would be in the forefront to abolish abortions on demand. These deaths no more concern them, than the killing of 40 million unborn babies since Roe Vs Wade, or the excruciating pain that many suffer when they are torn apart. As you continue to read the next three installments, you will see the shredding of the pro-choice arguments before your very eyes. They care NOTHING about women's health.
