The Totalitarian Face of Abortion Revealed
We have entered a new and shocking phase of Progressive abortion support. Long gone are the days of “safe, legal and rare.” In its place we now find the claim that abortion support is a pinnacle of virtue. Even more appalling, it’s no longer abortion under constrained circumstances, but rather up to the moment of birth and even after birth (i.e., infanticide). It is this murderous position that Progressives now consider to justify absolutely vile public conduct.
Hateful Harasser of Young Girls and Old Women
For Exhibit A I give you Brian Sims, the Pennsylvania State Representative (D) who publicly assaults young girls and an old woman as they peacefully pray and demonstrate in front of abortion clinics. His actions are well summarized by Rep. Jerry Knowles (R) and his memo seeking Sims’ censure.
On the first occasion, Representative Sims recorded himself berating, harassing, and violating the First Amendment rights of an individual, whom he labeled, an “old, white lady” for peacefully protesting and praying in public.
On the second occasion, Representative Sims again recorded himself berating, harassing others. He went a step further the second time, though, calling for the “doxing” of three minor children and one adult female. By soliciting strangers on the internet for their personal identifying information (i.e. names and addresses), Sims placed these citizens in reasonable fear for their own safety, merely because they were exercising their constitutional right to peacefully protest.
It should be noted that Representative Sims also used his elected position to intimidate the individuals with whom he was interacting, clearly stating on the videos that he was a member of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives.
Bloody Minded Madness
Exhibit B is another state representative, this one being Alabama State Rep. John Rogers (D) during a hearing on a proposed abortion bill. Apparently this statement was intended to change the hearts and minds of those supporting the bill (emphasis added).
“All I’m saying to you is it ought to be the woman’s choice,” Rogers said. “I’m not about to be the male telling a woman what to do with her body. She has a right to make that decision herself. Through rape or incest. Some kids are unwanted. So you kill them now or you kill them later. You bring them in the world unwanted, unloved, you send them to the electric chair. So, you kill them now or you kill them later. But the bottom line is just that I think we shouldn’t be making that decision.”
Since 1983 sixty-six people have been executed in the state of Alabama. The last execution by electric chair occurred in 2002 (all have been by lethal injection since then). In other words, less than two people per year have been executed since 1983. Between 2006 and 2015 an average of 9,641 abortions per year have been preformed in Alabama. So, by the logic of this bloody minded monster were abortion eliminated:
- Un-aborted babies would grow up by the thousands to commit capital crimes;
- The number of executions would rise from less than two per year to thousands;
- Alabama would reinstitute the electric chair to execute these thousands of new capital criminals per year.
This is the generous but implausible interpretation. He most likely means that mothers should have the right to condemn their unwanted children to death after birth.
But this vile man wasn’t done (emphasis added).
This [above statement] set off a firestorm, with the president’s son tweeting, “This is stomach curling and makes Ralph Northam look like a moderate on abortion.”
Rogers fired back Thursday, defending his remarks on abortion and personally attacking Trump saying, “That’s an honor. Thank God. Right on … Him being born is the very good defense that I have for abortion. His mother should’ve aborted him when he was born, and then he wouldn’t have made that stupid statement.”
Note that this second quote supports the less generous interpretation of this man’s beliefs.
So where were the supposedly morally superior Democrats on this man’s evil rantings, virtually nowhere (emphasis added).
On Wednesday, Republicans denounced comments by State Rep. John Rogers, D-Birmingham, suggesting that children killed in abortions would have to be killed in the electric chair later if they had lived.
Morally Vacuous Presidential Candidate
Lest you leave with the misapprehension that this moral idiocy is limited to low level state politicians I give you the vacuous musings of a U.S. Senator and presidential candidate Kirsten Gillibrand (D., New York).
“If you are a person of the Christian faith, one of the tenets of our faith is free will. One of the tenets of our democracy is that we have a separation of church and state, and under no circumstances are we supposed to be imposing our faith on other people. And I think this is an example of that effort.”
I challenge anyone to discover the logical progression of ideas within they statement.
But Senator Gillibrand wasn’t done. Later on she compared pro-life beliefs to racism, anti-semitism and homophobia. Here’s what she said while discussing appointments to the judiciary.
“I think there’s some issues that have such moral clarity that we have as a society decided that the other side is not acceptable,” she said.
“Imagine saying that it’s okay to appoint a judge who’s racist or anti-Semitic or homophobic. Asking someone to appoint someone who takes away basic human rights of any group of people in America—I don’t think that those are political issues anymore.”
In what moral universe does a presidential candidate denigrate roughly half the population as the equivalent to racists, ant-semites and haters of homosexuals for being pro-life? In the Progressive moral universe exposed by the 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
Just when I was finishing composition of this post the following pathetic example rolled-in (emphasis added).
A routine House debate nearly exploded Wednesday when California Democrat Norma J. Torres implied her Republican colleagues were “sex-starved males” for opposing abortion.
“Mr. Speaker, it is tiring to hear from so many sex-starved males on this floor talk about a woman’s right to choose,” Torres said as lawmakers debated a rule setting up amendment consideration for a four-bill spending package that includes funding for public health programs.
Torres, one of the newest members of the House Rules Committee, clearly broke House Rules — members cannot personally impugn their colleagues on the floor.
Note that this item nicely ties together the feminist misandry of the previous post with the abortion totalitarianism of this one.
No further comment is necessary.
