Why Some Women Think It’s Economically Responsible to Kill Our Kids

Ever the liberal website, Jezebel makes the argument that birth control and abortion are economic issues.  Their reasoning goes something like this:

Here’s a really important, apparently little-known fact that might blow some minds, if only it would sink in: pregnancy and childbirth cost money. A lot of it. And many, many organizations have been trying to point this out for a very long time. People’s grandmothers have already gotten headaches from banging their heads against this wall. So why the notion that women’s health is separate from “the economy” still a notion that’s given any credence whatsoever?

The author then launches into this cost estimate for raising a child, and since there are costs both for the parents and for the country, the reasoning goes, it’s an economic issue that can be solved by either preventing pregnancy from happening or removing the pregnancy if it happens.

What’s telling is the following paragraph:

Is This Billboard Shocking or Unsettling?

That’s what CBS Outdoor thought:

This time CBS said that the picture needed to go because abortion “is a potentially emotional topic that might be unduly disturbing to young women who may have made the kinds of choices that the displays deal with,” according to the complaint.

A message from the company to Counsel board member Betty LaRosa stated that CBS could not accept “images which might be deemed shocking, unsettling or even manipulative,” the complaint states….

CBS “insisted that if LEC would just get rid of the baby picture, the advertisement may run,” the plaintiffs says.

In The Window

Pregnancy should be the most exciting time in a young woman’s life.  It should be the time where you count the days (and sometimes hours) until the new life inside the womb makes an appearance on the world’s stage.

Unfortunately, for many new mothers, pregnancy is accompanied by worry, concern, and shame.

For all the cheering from the feminists about how science may yet prove that men are not necessary because women may be able to have children without the need for that pesky X chromosome, the truth is that it’s not the male gender that is in danger—but the female.

Pro-Life Fridays

A Walk in the Park

We’re going to resurrect Pro-Life Fridays and start looking again at life in the womb by answering some more Pro-Choice questions.

This is an exciting time for the Pro-Life movement, for in the middle of a terrible health care bill came a surprise in the further limiting of Federal Funding when it comes abortions.

So, this should be an interesting topic as the question of life comes back to the foreground.

When it comes to sex, America is considered prudish compared to the rest of the world.  The rest of the world sees itself as liberated, without the moral boundaries that some in the States still cling to.

From England, we read this shocking piece of news:

“I’m Personally Pro-Life”

Says the person with a conflicted conscience.

The society that we live in today has a problem.  It is at the same time very opinionated as well as believing that the moral high ground rests in not telling others their opinion, all the while telling you their opinion.

The Pro-Abortionists Know

Pro-Life causes took a hard hit last night.  First, the selection of Sen. Obama means that we will have a President with a 100% approval rating from NARAL.  There were also two Pro-Life Constitutional Amendments on the ballot—in Colorado and South Dakota—that were intended to challenge Roe v. Wade.

In some small way it’s good that they didn’t pass.  You would want them to pass when you have a good chance of getting it to the high court, and I’m not sure if there will be a good one in an Obama Administration.

However, buried in the AP article on all of these measures is an interesting bit of news:

Why Should Muslims or Christians Vote Obama?

October 14th, 2008 Viewed 1132 times

profile3_obamaHolly’s asking a very valid question over at her blog—why should a person of faith vote for someone that will not protect innocent life?

I would add, that Sen. Obama goes further than that, seeking to protect “the right of the mother to kill her baby” at the price of not wanting to vote to protect those babies that are born via botched abortions and left to die in “comfort rooms” because of intent.

He doesn’t respect innocent life, why do you trust him?

Sarah Palin, on abortion: 10-11-08

Sarah spoke these words today, in Johnstown, Pennsylvania.  How long has it been since we’ve heard someone from the top of the ticket speak so bravely in favor of all life?  God bless you, Sarah.

“In this same spirit, as defenders of the culture of life, John McCain and I believe in the goodness and potential of every innocent life. I believe the truest measure of any society is how it treats those who are least able to defend and speak for themselves. And who is more vulnerable, or more innocent, than a child?

When I learned that my son Trig would have special needs, I had to prepare my heart for the challenges to come. At first I was scared, and Todd and I had to ask for strength and understanding. But I can tell you a few things I’ve learned already.

Yes, every innocent life matters. Everyone belongs in the circle of protection. Every child has something to contribute to the world, if we give them that chance. There are the world’s standards of perfection … and then there are God’s, and these are the final measure. Every child is beautiful before God, and dear to Him for their own sake.
