Pro-Life Women Are Watching Also, Cecile Richards

On the 39th anniversary of Roe vs. Wade, women are indeed “watching” and they are angry as hell that the monstrous, evil practice that is abortion has not yet been overturned.  But if you were only to listen to radical feminist, Cecile Richards, President of Planned Parenthood Action Fund, you would get the impression that all women fully supported abortion, and fully support Roe vs. Wade.  What is Cecile Richards response to the fact that scores of millions of women in fact oppose abortion and are working hard to overturn Roe vs. Wade?  Answer?  Repugnant, indignant silence.

Cecile Richards, Planned Parenthood, liberal feminists all make it sound as if abortion is a fundamental and imperative “woman’s right” issue, and that without it women are inferior and less equal to men and/or second class citizens in America.  That, if Roe vs. Wade was ever to be overturned, women would somehow loss something of value, some piece of their identity, some inherent and innate freedom and right.  But the only thing that is “lost” when Roe vs. Wade is overturned is a woman’s right to kill her unborn child.  That is, and has been, the defining issue for the past 39 years.  Every time a woman has an abortion she is in actuality killing her unborn child, whether she is aware she is or not.

There is no reason to doubt Cecile Richards, or Planned Parenthood, NARAL and NOW all know abortion kills unborn children.  There is also no reason to doubt they do not care.  To them, pregnancy is like a terminal cancer.  Pregnancy, to them, means a life sentence of stay at home mother-hood.  This is what they fear most.  More women staying at home to raise the kids, either leaving the workforce or never entering it.  In other words, pure, unadulterated selfishness.

Richards celebrate Roe vs. Wade as:

The time the Supreme Court recognized the inherent right to privacy for women…

But at that time, in 1973, because science and medicine were both more primitive, the Supreme Court was forced to make an error of judgement in ruling on the side of abortion, and granting, a right to it.  The Supreme Court, because the evidence did not yet exist, did not recognize that an unborn child is a human being from the moment of conception.  Science was not as advanced in 1973 and the technology to peer inside the womb was unavailable.  And yet, while this technology has been available for years now, we are still debating whether or not abortion is the killing of an unborn human being or merely the removal of a blob of tissue or collection of cells, or whatever other disgusting euphemisms the pro-abortion movement ascribes abortion as being.

Cecile explains the fundamental and critical importance of Roe vs. Wade and abortion this way:

[As] an urgent issue given that women were dying in emergency rooms across the country from self-induced abortions.

In other words, we are supposed to keep abortion on demand legal for all women because a tiny, tiny minority of women, a fraction of the actual number and percentage of women have, in the past, and of their own free will, self aborted, and died???  And should Roe vs. Wade be overturned, there is the possibility several woman could be forced, of their own free will, to revert back to the illustrious “back-alley abortions”???  The infamous metal coat hangers???  The storied and “heroic” long trips across the country to find the one person who can end their pregnancy in secret and save them from mother-hood???

Ladies and gentleman – Cecile Richards is engaging in deception, as is Planned Parenthood and the entire pro-abortion industry.  The vast majority of women who became pregnant prior to Roe vs. Wade carried the pregnancy through.  Granted, in cases of young girls, there was still that stigma and shame attached, and perhaps they were sent away to visit an “Aunt”.  However, abortion is not now legal, is not now so rigorously fought for strictly to keep women from engaging in those dangerous “back alley abortions”.  Abortion is kept alive, and fought for by Richards, Planned Parenthood, NARAL, NOW, etc. for two reasons.  One – to keep women and girls from having to decide over caring for a child or a career.  Two – because abortion is not done pro-bono, it remains a very profitable business and money-maker.

Another of Cecile’s canards:

But today, women across the nation are disturbed to see a set of politicians doing everything they can to undermine this landmark decision that has stood as a critical safeguard for women’s health for four decades.

To the many millions of American women who are pro-life, abortion has never “stood as a critical safeguard for women’s health”.  That is a feminist prevarication.  It has, of course, stood as a critical safeguard for liberal feminists who desire to indoctrinate other unsuspecting girls and women, into believing abortion, under the guise of a “right to privacy” is a woman’s right issue that cannot, must not be breached.  Because if it is, all women, so feminists profess, will be unduly subjected to the “horrors” and “unimaginable dangers” of the past.  Richards always invokes “dangerous and illegal abortions”, but what her greatest fear is, is seeing America revert back to the 1950′s and the “Father Knows Best“, “Ozzie and Harriet“, and  “Leave it to Beaver” way of life that makes feminists like Richards cringe and squeal in disgust.

Look at it this way – if abortion really provides a safeguard to women’s “health”, the challenge for Richards is to explain what the specific “health” issue is, which she and the rest of the feminists never do.  And if it is not life threatening, then it is treatable for both mother and unborn child.  So, why kill the child in the womb if both it and mother can live?  Until Richards and the entire pro-abortion movement, can be thoroughly challenged to define what specific “health” issue(s) warrants the killing of an unborn child, they will keep using “health” as a generic euphemism for what really amounts to their fear of America, and American values, returning to the era of the 1950′s.

There is nothing “anti-woman” about being pro-life.  Abortion rights are under assault now because more and more American women, and men, are coming to that conclusion.  The tide is indeed turning, and the filth of Cecile Richards, Planned Parenthood, NARAL, NOW and the entire pro-abortion movement is slowly washing away.

We know Roe vs. Wade will celebrate its 40th anniversary next January 22nd.  Let us hope (and pray, for those of you who are religious) that there is a Republican in the White House by then, and the House and Senate is controlled by a majority of pro-life conservatives who will finally topple this national disgrace which has seen the killing of over 50 millions human beings, the vast multitude of which were exterminated needlessly and selfishly.

As new measures are introduced to put an end to the despicable, evil practice of abortion, Richards and her feminist pro-abortion ilk will kick, scream and move about even harder to keep the killing of unborn children legal.  We know that.

We also know that unborn children have the ability to kick and move about in the womb – a sign of life.  As Richards kicks and flails about madly, insanely, irrationally, fighting to keep abortion alive, will unborn children have to kick all that much harder to let their mothers know they are fighting to keep alive, that they want the chance to live  – and they do not want to be killed?

  1. What a great point you make. What is the specific “health risk” to which the proborts refer? Good post!

  4. What a sad and beautifully ignorant little article you have here, sweetheart. I’m glad I have the option of going to college and pursuing my dreams, rather than being chained to an unwanted child.

  5. When it is adoption which comes to mind of one who is pro-life, it is death to the unborn child for the selfish mother who can only think of herself. Being pro-life does not mean advocating the mother be forced, “chained” to a new born, and ‘unwanted” child. It does mean, however, she take some responsibility and make some adult decisions. When you grow up, perhaps you will realize that.

  6. Ohhhhh! I suppose it was /my/ fault that my birth control was sabotaged by my abusive ex boyfriend who stalked, harassed and beat me, then tried to make me stay with him by using my uterus as his ransom. Damn, I guess my lawyer and licensed therapist were all wrong. Perhaps when you grow up… oh wait. Please don’t, you’re much more useful in the playpen.

  7. 1. This is a straw man argument and a non sequitur. Pro-life advocates do not wish to force you to keep the child, we merely want you to acknowledge that you have a human life inside of you that has value and worth, and as such to carry it to term and give birth to it rather than kill it.

    2. Your silly ad hominems do not make a very convincing argument as to why abortion ought to remain legal, and why you should have the right to end the life of your unborn child.

    3. It will be your fault for the unborn child’s death if you “choose” to kill it.

  8. Sweetheart, this is extremely old news. This happened when I was 18 and didnt know how to be myself and not let myself be controlled. I’m 24 now, in college, with my own apartment and car, and two jobs. And I have never regretted it.

  9. Ann Burlingham on said:

    You seem to be one of those anti-abortion people who does not acknowledge that, while _you_ may believe a fetus is a person from the moment of conception, other may have their own view. Certainly Mother Nature aborts quite a few pregnancies her ownself, without assistance.

    Happily, you get to choose, and I get to choose. Even more happily, you don’t get to make my choices for me. And nobody gets to make me a walking incubator risking my life and health against my will. Hooray! Thank goodness for NARAL, the ACLU, and Planned Parenthood (whose main business – it’s right there in the name – is helping women control their own reproductive lives, so that they are healthy and able to have children, if they want them, when they want them).

  10. Nevertheless, you could still have had all that you have now, given birth and given the baby up for adoption. Obviously the abortion provider you went to did not offer alternatives to abortion. Six years isn’t exactly “extremely old news”, and many women do come to regret having an abortion once they realize they did have options, and that the fetus was not merely a blob of jelly or a collection of cells, but a human being as a sonogram would show. There are many other young women out there right now, going through exactly what you once went through. You don’t seem as though you had anyone to turn to, hence you were taken advantage of not only by the father of the baby, but the abortion provider as well, which probably had complete “control” over you once entered their facility. Is that a situation you would recommend other girls and women find themselves in?

  11. Uh no, babe. I had complete control over my own body and decided before I even went to the clinic that I wanted an abortion. What you’re implying is that they talked me into keeping a child that would permanently alter my body, that I never wanted to begin with. Its called having a spine.

  12. Preach it.

  13. It’s not a belief, but a scientific fact that a fetus is a human being from the moment of conception. Indeed, sadly, “Mother nature” aborts quite a few pregnancies. She doesn’t need any help from Planned Parenthood or any other abortion provider. When we talk of “choice” and such euphemisms, we are really talking about ending the life of an unborn child. It’s not (the unborn child) really your body, but a separate human body growing and developing within you. The law should protect that individual life from being destroyed. Abortion to NARAL, Planned Parenthood, and the ACLU is a money making business. Planned Parenthood to do the abortions; NARAL to direct women and girls to Planned Parenthood; the ACLU to defend Planned Parenthood, abortion rights organizations and women seeking a right to end their pregnancy in “privacy”. Nobody wants you “risking you life and health”. And in this day and age, there is very little risk to pregnancy, and not much in the way of “health” either. If a problem arises, and it is truly life threatening, that is one thing. By the way – the main business of Planned Parenthood is abortion.

  14. You opted for abortion because that was the only option you were familiar with or knew about. Abortion clinics do not talk people out of having abortions and “having a spine” means having courage. Having the baby would have been more courageous than killing it. But if all you hear in schools all your life, and on the television shows you watch, and the videos and music you listen to is feminist, pro-abortion propaganda it is hard for one to make any other decision but abortion. if you never hear about the alternatives.

  15. Semantics! You can’t defend your pro-abortion views so you resort to this. I will continue to “preach it”, and offer substantive solutions to, and alternatives for, abortion.

  16. Translation: You’re only free and have your own mind when you do what I/we agree with. Ha!

  17. And by the way, babe, I was raised Christian, so I knew all of the “friendly,” anti-woman approaches to it. I chose to have an abortion, having had all the information either shoved down my throat by my family and at the time church, and having researched my own options. You know, that thing called making an informed decision with your own research, instead of letting someone else make it for you, or talk you into making the choice someone else wants you to make – you know, the thing you’re advocating.

  18. In your opinion.

  19. In my “opinion” what?

  20. The “thing” being advocated is life. There is nothing “anti-woman” about being pro-life”, You have been severely misinformed throughout your young life. And whatever “research” you have conducted” does not negate the fact that abortion is the killing of an unborn child. Telling yourself otherwise, to feel less guilty about having the abortion, does not change anything.

  21. It’s not a matter of agreeing” with any one side or position. It’s about examining the facts. Abortion is the killing of an unborn child. The “ha” is not proof of anything, nor does it lend credibility to your argument.

  22. I find it humorous that you had a list of preconceived notions on how I came to an an abortion(you were only told about abortion. you were misled. the abortion provider talked you into it. your school told you[I was homeschooled]. you never heard the alternatives), but all of them were wrong. What happens when someone who is raised in a pro life system is essentially raped and made pregnant against her will, her uterus used as ransom? Oh horrors, she chose abortion! The pro life movement wants to use her uterus as moral and political high ground – she is not a person, but essentially, a walking incubator, a slave in service to her reproductive system.

  23. That “slave in service to her reproductive system” is pure pro-abortion, Planned Parenthood, liberal feminist drivel. Your “situation” seems to be more extreme than the normal “unplanned” and “unwanted” pregnancy, so far as that scenario goes. However, it is not the unborn child who is the enemy here, nor is the unborn child the one who is “holding your uterus for ransom”. It is whoever impregnated you to begin with that is at fault. The unborn child is merely an innocent byproduct and innocent bystander. You thought by killing it you would have your revenge on the father and on society, perhaps. And also, perhaps, because you thought killing it would resolve any psychological or emotional attachments to it. But here it is, six years later, and you still haven’t gotten over it. You still talk about the incident. You use what happened to you as justification for why all women and girls should have the right to kill their unborn children. Your child would be six years old right now, had you opted for life. You could have given it up for adoption, placed it into a loving home where it would have had a chance to live. You took that “choice” away from your child because you could not handle, did not want to handle – were told by pro-abortion advocates – you did not have to handle it for nine months because all that meant to you, and them, was being a “slave” and a “walking incubator”. What is nine months, compared to the six years that has now passed?

  24. Something that was never born cannot die.
    FYI my previous boyfriend (who killed himself because of depression that was caused by being sexually abused in care homes through out his childhood) was put into the adoption system.
    Adoption isn’t the wonderful miracle paradise you think it is.

  25. I am allowing this comment merely to show the lack of real intelligent or intellect on the pro-abortion side. Ad hominem attacks and ignorance are no excuse for one’s opinions. An unborn child in the womb is very much alive, so yes, it can die.

  27. Rhyssa on said:

    Since you keep going on about adoption, how many children have you adopted from the foster care system? Out of the thousands who are already in the system, still waiting to be adopted and/or the children who are older and have simply been shuffled around from home to home, most likely without a chance of actually being adopted because they are too old, too brown, too imperfect.

    Please stop implying that adoption is the perfect solution for unwanted children. It’s not an option for everyone and tbh, not the best solution for the children either.

  28. Is death for the unborn child better than a chance at life? There is no logic to that. I will never “stop implying” adoption is a better alternative to killing an unborn child. That not every child is lucky enough to be adopted is not a valid reason to kill it in the womb. Being lucky enough to be born, and given a chance at life, is what the pro-life side is advocating. The pro-abortion side is advocating, “choosing” death for the unborn child. Is that really the “choice” an unborn child would want for itself, had it the “choice”?

  29. Yes, thank you for “allowing” it, because it shows beautifully and plainly how full of poop you people are. ♥

  30. I am not ashamed of it, because animals like YOU, my dear, would have people like me shut up and never talk about it, and then when we stand up and say “This is what happened and I AM NOT ASHAMED” you have the gall to say I “haven’t gotten over it.” Are you a licensed therapist? Nope, you’re a psychotic moron ranting on the internet about things you will never fully understand. And I speak because animals like YOU would shut us up, speaking our minds and experiences for us, rather than letting us do it. You would have the world believe we are ashamed and broken. In short, you’re a manipulative liar who wants to twist facts for your own agenda. Here, honeybun, are some real facts for you:

    It is estimated there are between 143 million and 210 million orphans worldwide (recent UNICEF report).

    The current population of the United States is just a little over 300 million… to give you an idea of the enormity of the numbers… (The current population of Russia is 141 million)

    Every day 5,760 more children become orphans

    2,102,400 more children become orphans every year in Africa alone

    Every 15 seconds, another child in Africa becomes an AIDS orphan

    There are an estimated 14 million AIDS orphans in Sub-Saharan Africa (a number higher than the total of every under-eighteen year old in Canada, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, and Ireland combined)

    This figure is estimated to reach 18 million orphans in Africa alone by 2010 (only two and a half years away)

    8 out of 10 children orphaned by AIDS lives in sub-saharan Africa

    Approximately 250,000 children are adopted annually, but…

    Each year 14, 505, 000 children grow up as orphans and age out of the system by age sixteen

    Each day 38,493 orphans age out

    Every 2.2 seconds another orphan ages out with no family to belong to and no place to call home

    In Russia and the Ukraine, studies have shown that 10% – 15% of these children commit sucide before they reach age eighteen

    These studies also show that 60% of the girls become prostitutes and 70% of the boys become hardened criminals

    Another Russian study reported that of the 15,000 orphans aging out of state-run institutions every year, 10% committed suicide, 5,000 were unemployed, 6,000 were homeless and 3,000 were in prison within three years.

    There are about 120,000 children for adoption in the USA at any given time. With about 600,000 in the care of children’s services. In 2002, only 10% of those children were adopted. The rest are left in various stages of foster care.

    Yes, the kinder option.

  31. Also, it had nothing to do with revenge, and everything to taking control of MY body, something that was robbed of me by my boyfriend of the time, something the government tries to own. My body, my uterus, my choice, my life. End of discussion. And it always will be.

  32. Abortion (death) is not the solution to the problem. But if it is, perhaps the children who are now waiting to be adopted ought to be put to death “for their own good”. Perhaps those with AIDS ought to be put to death “for their own good”. Perhaps those with mental disabilities ought to be put to death “for their own good”. Perhaps prostitutes ought to be put to death “for their own good”. Abortion is never done “for the good” of the unborn child, for sparing them a life that will contain difficulties. Abortion is always done “for the good” of the woman who wants to be spared nine months of pregnancy and having to give birth. I do have the gall, and you can’t take that away. Where you got the idea I would want to “shut you up” and prevent you from talking about it is anyone’s guess. Planned Parenthood, feminist propaganda, perhaps. Twisting facts? Abortion is the killing of an unborn child, a human being, a separate and distinct life, though within the woman, not the woman. That is a fact. What is so “twisted” about that?

  33. Your boyfriend took something away from you, a “choice”. You did the same by taking away your unborn child’s “choice” to live. You took control of your unborn child’s life and terminated it because of something a piece of garbage did to you. You robbed your unborn child of its choice and its chance to live. You will recover from your wounds. Your unborn child will never have that chance.

  34. Indeed, my choice to be pregnant was taken away, but it was corrected. It is a clump of cells at the time of legal abortion. End of discussion.

  35. You’re a sad, sick little girl. The difference between a legal abortion and children in the adoption system is obvious. And since you can’t clearly see what it is, this discussion is over. I have better things to do than trying to explain common sense to someone who kicks, screams and flails when they cant get their way, and make everyone bow to their reproductive choices. And that is all this entry was – screaming and crying that you can’t get your way.

  36. “End of discussion” is always meant and understood to be a cop out because the person – in this case, you – cannot contribute anything intellectually stimulating or relevant to the conversation. In other words – you cannot defend your position.

  37. You have been the one “screaming” and “crying”. And again, this “end of discussion” is just your way of saying, ad hominems aside, you don’t have a rebuttal. If all I had to learn about common sense was from you, I wouldn’t have any but ad hominem attacks either.

  38. Why did you delete my comment on what a real abortion looks like, sweetheart? Does the truth hurt?

  39. Abortion kills unborn children. That is the real truth which Planned Parenthood, NARAL, NOW and all pro-abortion groups and supporters are in denial about. If you, or anyone else, can disprove that – please try.

  40. Except the fetus doesn’t get a choice. Until approximately 24 weeks, the fetus isn’t viable outside the womb so before that time, the woman gets to make the decisions about what is best for her and the fetus. If the woman doesn’t want to be pregnant, took measures to prevent becoming pregnant, and yet she still ended up pregnant? Then she has the right to make her own decision on what happens to that fetus. In fact, as long as that fetus is inside a woman’s body, she gets to make the decisions, full stop. If she wants the baby, fine. If she doesn’t want the baby, fine. If she wants to give it up for adoption, fine. If she wants an abortion, fine. It is HER decision on what to do, that’s the essence of choice, after all.

    I’m all for limiting access to abortion after a certain period (typically after 24 weeks, like the rest of the sane world where this issue isn’t even on the radar) unless there is a valid reason. And in fact, that’s typically how things do work here now in the US, as long as the anti-choice folks aren’t sticking their noses into places they don’t belong.

  41. Whether a fetus is “viable” outside the womb or not, at whatever time period does not diminish the value of that life. A fetus is just as alive at 23 weeks as it is at 24, and just as it is alive all those weeks prior. The point of being pro-life is not to punish women, to “enslave” women to become “walking incubators”, but to help women understand that once pregnancy occurs a human life is created. Even if she never meant to become pregnant, and even if she took every measure possible to prevent becoming pregnant – she still became pregnant. And she became pregnant because she engaged in sex of her own free will, knowing that, even taking all known precautions, there is always the chance of becoming pregnant. After having had sex, and becoming pregnant, she ought to woman up and accept that she, in part, is responsible for creating a new life, and prepare herself for the pregnancy and the birth. Adoption may be the best alternative then for a woman who cannot care for another child. And although adoption, regrettably, does not end up benefiting every single child in the system, what child would have honestly preferred their mother had aborted them rather than given them life?
