PP Defunding Round-Up

IN Gov. Mitch DanielsIN Gov. Mitch Daniels, the first state executive to defund Planned Parenthood

It’s been an exciting 10 days or so for defunding Planned Parenthood on the state level. Indiana made history last week as the first state to end taxpayer subsidies of Planned Parenthood (to the tune of $3 million). Planned Parenthood sued for an injunction to block the law from taking effect–as if they were entitled to Hoosiers’ money–which a federal judge promptly rejected, allowing the defunding to commence immediately.

On Wednesday, we learned that Kansas is joining Indiana to become the second state defunding Planned Parenthood–in this case, stripping a little over $300,000 the abortion chain had been receiving from Title X.

Also on Wednesday, Wisconsin’s Joint Finance Committee voted to end family planning grants to any organization referring for or performing abortions, and today, the news just broke that the Tennessee legislature is barring Title X funds from Planned Parenthood as well.

It may take a little longer to defund Planned Parenthood on the federal level, but meanwhile, state governments across the country are rising to the occasion. The dominoes are beginning to fall one by one, but with what seems like an accelerated pace. Planned Parenthood is running scared and is watching Minnesota, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee, and Texas to see where the next blow will come from–looks like Wisconsin was out of their radar initially.

If you live in one of those states, contact your local pro-life group to get involved in helping end taxpayer subsidies of the biggest abortion business in America. If your state doesn’t have an effort to defund Planned Parenthood yet, start one! Planned Parenthood is the smiling mask that shields the entire bloody abortion industry from public scrutiny–as they fall, the peculiar institution of abortion will fall with them.

    It’s not only morally unethical that tax payers have to support such, let alone when it’s against your moral ethics. It’s wrong no matter how you look at it and to think they opened the $8 billion fortress in Kansas that will kill millions more ~ without their parents even knowing about it. Lord, let us end this corruption and those who choose to work or volunteer with planned parenthood ~ those who stand with planned parenthood stand in blood with planned parenthood and are part of the problem, not the solution.

      Theresa, Planned Parenthood has not opened a new eight-billion dollar facility in Kansas.  That story appeared on “The Onion” website: http://www.theonion.com/articles/planned-parenthood-opens-8-billion-abortionplex,20476/  The Onion does satire.  The stories are made up.  They’re fictional.  They’re imaginary.  They’re not real.  Only crazy people believe what they read on “The Onion,” and I’m sure you’re not crazy.

      • Theresa Czyzyk

        I didn’t get the info from Onion ~ PP has huge abortion mills throughout the US ~ and let’s not show your lack of factual information and lack of character by calling names. NOTHING that prochoice offers is of moral character, good for woman, or for the male and female babies that they’re killing. Look into how much they sell the brains, organs and tissue of these most innocent after they get the blood money for the abortion and it only reinforces the corruption. The choice is simple, LIFE or DEATH.

          Okay.  Why don’t you link to where you learned about the “$8 billion fortress in Kansas that will kill millions” and we can see where that site got its information?

        • 12angrymen

          LY112 is correct Theresa; Planned Parenthood does not have an 8 billion dollar abortion mill, that was a fake article put forth by the satirical “news” site “The Onion.” You probably did not get that information from their website, but it did start there first and then spread around the web like wildfire.

    YAAAAY!!!!!!

  • Lesgf8

    Did you know that only 4 of the 28 Planned Parenthood facilities in Indiana offer abortions? This is a political move for Daniels, who may vie for the GOP nomination for President. Luckily, after this, he will have no chance in the election.
    But we shall see how long this provision holds up in court.

    • Paisleyplaidco

      Yes, you will see!! You are seeing!!  Sometimes it takes a while, but the truth always comes out. PP has been exposed for the scum they are….no turning back now!!! 

      • Lesgf8

        Not necessarily, they will go back to court this summer. And you may eat your words.

        • Paisleyplaidco

          You must be in support of  the sex trafficking of minors, sexual abuse of young girls and statutory rape? You sure can’t be supporting all of the quality healthcare they provide….because they don’t! PP does not provide comprehensive healthcare for women….that’s merely a smokescreen to hide their illegal activity. No one is denying that women and young girls should have affordable healthcare. The services they provide are already provided at local health depts. for free! PP money needs to be allocated to an agency that actually cares about the well being of women,not one who cares about how much money they can make from selling abortions. Do some research of your own, instead of relying on what you hear from the news. Facts don’t lie. They will go down. Libs love to hide the truth….but it ALWAYS comes out.

          • Lesgf8

            This is where I would usually engage you in some form of debate, correct your false claims, offer you some reliable sources to back up my corrections, etc. But honestly, I’d rather not. All of you people seem content to sit back and drink the kool-aid, so fine, be content. Gobble up the propaganda. Find a scapegoat to despise. Form misguided opinions. Support fringe political agenda groups who exist to spread ignorance, anti-intellectual conservatism, and unenlightened religion. I don’t care. 

            But if I were to give any advice, it would be this: turn off Fox News, put down your bible, and get back to reality.

          • Overthehill

            “drink the Kool-aide” — I am so tired of this lame expression! “Put down your Bible” ??  Whoa — you are treading on thin ice. So who do you depend upon for your moral compass??

          • Lesgf8

            Um.. morality exists outside of religion. As a matter of fact, religion gets its morality from humans. People are capable of distinguishing right from wrong – it is a result of our evolutionary history.

          • Rmankersen

            So if “religion gets its morality from humans” why then do you say “put down your bible”.

          • Lesgf8

            A human being’s conscience is more often than not a better indicator of moral behavior than an antiquated book written by men with an agenda. Especially a book so riddled with cruelty and absurdity.

          • Overthehill

            So  when you become a lawyer and the case involves say rape.  You will take the stand that this young man had the right to rape this young girl because his conscience is OK with that.  He feels no remorse. Now the “antiquated book” (the Bible) would call this sin.  The civil law calls it a crime.  How would you argue??

          • Paisleyplaidco

            “book so riddled with cruelty and absurdity. ”

            …cruelty like killing the unborn?

          • Lesgf8

            Actually, yes. God did that too. Numbers 31:15-17, Hosea 9:14, 9:16, 13:16. 

          • Theresa Czyzyk

            Isn’t it refreshing that the survey reveals that Prolife is the majority ~ and to see the prodeath minority scurry! Thanks for defending life!

          • Paisleyplaidco

            Debate? Typical lib…backs off when the truth is called out.
            So you’re going to disprove video after video exposing what PP is really all about. Video that shows them engaging in the cover up of criminal activity. Repeatedly encouraging the lying to officials. Promoting underage girls in prostitution rings. You really think this isn’t all about MONEY??!! 

            Funny…you say something’s wrong with us because we want to protect an unborn child and the woman carrying it??!!  We want to protect the young girls that go into these clinics…. 
            REALLY?! WE NEED TO STEP AWAY FROM THE KOOL-AID??!! Wake up! There’s more protection and rights for animals in this country than for a human baby, and you really see nothing wrong with that???

            The only propoganda is the mainstream libtard media. The only ignorance is the fact that most of society takes what they hear on the news at face value, never questioning it. Do some digging you’ll see that all of the big media outlets are owned by left wing democrats….PROMOTING THEIR AGENDA!!! Follow the money trail! Suppose you think NPR is unbiased as well.

            One last note,National abortion rates have dropped by about 25%, but PP’s abortion rate has risen by 50%.
            NOW THAT”S REALITY!!!

          • Tired of the Stupidity

            Perhaps you are the one who needs to do research. 1) The video’s validity is in question (it most likely was edited). 2)  she was helped in the endeavor by James O’keefe, the man who released the heavily edited videos that helped end ACORN. 3)  Most people are accomidationg by nature and some will even break the law to do so, its only a matter of time till you find one who will. 4) She visited or sent people to visit several PP offices across six states, the odds of finding these people increases with each clinic visited. 5) PP repported to the FBI That their offices had been visited by people seeking abortions for young girls (13-15) in a possible multistate underage human trafficking scheme a full week before any of the videos’ release. Why did it take so long to release the videos if they wern’t doctored?

    • Overthehill

      Sorry — but he is not even running for president.  He eliminated himself yesterday.  As far as Planned Parenthood, it is amazing that only 4 of them can run up a bill of 3 Mil. dollars!!!  If your state is having financial problems, 3M is 3M — no matter how you look at it.  Only animals kill their own young.  My question::  WHERE THE HECK IS OHIO IN ALL THIS??
      WE COULD SAVE SOME STATE DOLLARS HERE!!

      • Lesgf8

        No, there are 28. Only 4 of which do abortions. 

        And news flash: we are animals.

        • Rmankersen

          I’m not an animal.

          Also…why do they need our money again?

          • Lesgf8

            You are an animal. It is a scientific fact.

          • Rmankersen

            Does that mean I get to cook you for dinner? :) 

          • 12angrymen

            If you are a cannibal I’m sure a person would be very tasty, but alas we have laws against that. Another carnivorous animal however, I am sure would love to sink their teeth into a juicy human. In addition, I am sure you do not eat all animals Rmankersen. I wager you’ve never had dog, elephant, tiger, giraffe, or cat?
            Human beings are mammals, more technically in the class of “homo sapiens” of the animal kingdom.  

          • Djushee

            I’d just like to say that I disagree with you. Some certain people will say ‘No we’re not so *there*’ but anyway. Can I ask you, why do you believe that people are animals? Not as an athiest-basher, I’ve been taught to ask questions and I’d like to know why you believe this.

          • Lesgf8

            Humans and chimps share 96% of each others’ genetic sequence, as they are our closest living relative. 

            But in a more general sense, humans are a part of the animal kingdom. If we are not animals, what are we? Plants? Fungus? Bacteria? 

        • Overthehill

          Maybe you consider yourself an animal — I do not.  I was specifically created in the image of The Creator for a purpose.  He knew me.. before I was formed… He knew my name. ( Ephesians 2:10) I have a soul and the Holy Spirit guides me to know right from wrong. Abortion is wrong in so many ways.

          • Lesgf8

            I don’t mean to offend you, but you are an animal. 
            Kingdom: Animalia, Phylum: Chordata, Class: Mammalia, 
            Order: Primates, Family: Hominidae, Genus: Homo, 
            Species: Homo Sapien.To believe otherwise, (and again I do not mean to offend,) is a delusion.

          • Overthehill

            Of course, you are using a play on words … it is the Homo Sapien aspect that makes us very different from the way the pigs in our barn behave, think, eat, reproduce and care for their off spring. You must agree that human beings differ a great deal from what we refer to as an “animal”.  For one thing they cannot observe creation all around them without knowing in their heart that there is a higher power, a God & creator.

          • Lesgf8

            Not all people believe in a creator.

          • Overthehill

            I know — much to their great risk of spiritual death.  The loss of blessings alone in THIS life is a thing that saddens me.  But I have always wondered:  how do you look into the face of a newborn child and NOT believe in a Creator??  How do you observe the untamed fury and power of a tornado in Joplin that wipes out a whole city and turns trees into match sticks– and not believe in a Higher Power (God)???

          • Lesgf8

            I look into the face of a newborn child and can see millions of years of evolution, culminating in the love between two human beings who created a child together. Isn’t it enough to look at the beauty of the world without thinking that some magical being had a hand in it?

            And when I see the horrible devastation that happened in Joplin, I understand that the earth is a powerful and at times inhospitable place to live… and that natural disasters are just that – natural.

            Why would you want to believe in a god that would level entire cities at his or her own whim? It sounds megalomaniacal and cruel.

          • Overthehill

            When I look into a baby’s face, I see a miracle — such delicate skin,the eyes alone are astounding in the way  they produce vision. Fingers that are so small that all the bones and joints and tendons are almost microscopic.  The baby’s lips are like soft rose petals– and in her mouth are buds for both baby teeth and adult teeth in the future. The way the blood circulation changes from fetal circulation, thru the umbilical cord, to individual circulation is amazing. I have a hard time believing this is all an accident.   Hmmm.

            You must love research — law is a field of much research thru dusty tomes of civil law — I would like to challenge you:  Read the book of John in the New Testament — only 21 short chapters.  Approach it as you would a novel — open minded and let the writing carry you along. Then let me know what you think.

            Btw, several scholars, including Churchill have stated that a person’s education is not complete until he/she has read the complete Bible— because of the history of Israel and the poetry and wise sayings & the many prophecies that were made in the O.T and completely fulfilled in the N.T. 

            I am eager to hear what you have to say.

      • Tired of the Stupidity

        I’m pro-life, but I also hate ignorance and misinformation. Planned Parenthood is banned from spending the money it recives on abortions, aditionally abortion services only account for 3% of PP’s total services, wich are aimed at contraception and screening for STD’s. Also, in the larger argument of humans being animals, anyone who opens a science book would see we are part of the animal kingdom and therefore animals. You say only animals kill their young, but we kill our young so we must be animals, using your own logic. On one last note animals don’t kill for sport or money and destroy their environment.

    • Rmankersen

      Ya know what, who cares? 4 out of 28, 25 out of 28…what difference does it make? Planned Parenthood will live to see another day (unfortunately) with or without my money or yours. At the end of the day, Planned Parenthood is an irrelevant drain on taxpayers. If the earth opened up and swallowed the Planned Parenthood down the road from me…the majority of people wouldn’t notice or care. 

      People have sex, people have babies…that’s the way it’s been for 200,000 years. If you wanna stop it…fine. Leave me out of it because I don’t give a damn.

  • Xxbrokenangel66xx

    This is absolutely WONDERFUL. I can’t wait till more states start cutting the funding to PP. Just think about how much money our government could make by cutting all that? I know a few billions of dollars won’t do a WHOLE lot.. but maybe if we start with the defunding of PP we can then move to other was to cut our budget. :)

    Wow..Lesgf8 i keep seeing these posts you make to every single article on this site.. and I’m wondering why in the world do you sit here watching each and every post from a Pro-Life website when you are clearly against everything Pro-Lifers stand for?? And you seem to disagree with every single post made.. It seems like you would have better things to do then sit there and put down peoples beliefs..
    Its one thing to disagree with people, but to put them down by saying “But if I were to give any advice, it would be this: turn off Fox News, put down your bible, and get back to reality.” Is just childish. If you don’t agree with what people and what they do thats one thing but your implying that if someone does these things they’re not in reality. Thats more then wrong. State your opinion just don’t be rude about it. 

    • Lesgf8

      My reasons are twofold: foremost, I am a law student, and I like to practice debating people with wildly different views. Secondly, I am an activist for women’s rights, and I hate to see the dissemination of misinformation from groups like Live Action.

      Lastly, if you watch Fox News, you are not getting reality.

      • MommaQuigs

        @dc7ccc52c0d55e039f7f98f6bf3aa3c0:disqus I get the “I’m a law student…” thing.  (BTW, good luck – law isn’t always easy) but those of us who are pro-life are also activists for women’s rights….but we include unborn women in this.  I realize that sounds trite, but we are thinking of current as well as future women.  And while you believe pro-life groups offer misinformation, there is pretty continuous proof that PP just lies – and isn’t that I can’t see what the heck I’m typing!misinformation?  The difference is

        • MommaQuigs

          This darn comment box is not big enough! Grrr.

      • Paisleyplaidco

        Law student?  Say no more. That explains EVERYTHING!!  There is no morality in that profession.

        • Lesgf8

          No morality in that profession? Wow. Defending people who are wrongly accused of crimes? Prosecuting people who commit heinous crimes? Providing pro bono legal counsel to those who are in need? Arguing for changes in unjust laws? 

          Who do you think does those things? Fairies with pixie dust?

      • Elisa

        Hi there Lesgf8. I was just wondering. Have you had an abortion? Have you ever counseled someone who has? Well I have. One case in particular was of a young woman who took the “abortion pill” to end her pregnancy and was told that she was just discarding “tissue” nothing more. Imagine her surprise when she ended the life of her child and saw the remains of that little person in the toilet?  Who was looking out for this young woman? It is not all about the baby. She is the one who drank the kool-aide, But you know what? It was not her fault. She simply believed what this medical professional told her. Let’s not make this a religious thing. Do me a favor. Talk with some women who are Post Abortive. It just may give you some insight that you cannot get by studying any book.

        • Lesgf8

          Well Elisa, since you seem awfully presumptuous, I will answer you. Yes, I have had an abortion. I took mifepristone at the age of 19. It was the most physical pain I have ever experienced, and that doesn’t do justice what it was to me emotionally. 

          I was raised by a single mother, and grew up seeing first hand the struggles she faced to raise my brother and I alone – she worked full time while finishing her degree at night, all so she could give her children opportunity. The first house we lived in was so old that we would boil water to bathe in, because there was no hot water sometimes. She worked so much to just provide financially, that we barely ever saw her. It still brings tears to her eyes when she talks about missing her children grow up.I vowed to not let my children grow up the same way. So when I – in all of my youthful stupidity – opted out of condoms a few times with my boyfriend, I became pregnant. I was devastated. I was broke, hadn’t yet finished my education, and completely blindsided. I will never forget the heaviness that sank within me the moment I saw two lines on that pregnancy test… I knew that I would never be the same. And I haven’t been.

          It was with great consideration and many late, tearful nights that I decided upon abortion. I had always been pro-choice, but now it was my choice, and it was by no means an easy or flippant decision. I chose the pill because it was still so early, and it seemed more private, and somehow more natural… absent the sterile, mechanical environment of a surgical procedure.

          There were two medications; the first softens the inside of the uterus, the second causes contractions. I spent an hour on all fours, doubled over in pain during the contractions.. it was awful. Shortly thereafter, the bleeding started. There was nothing that resembled a fetus that was discharged, just blood and tissue. Not that there needed to be.. I knew that what was coming out of me was the makings of a child.. the makings of my child. That night, I had in essence given birth, but to nothing. 

          In the days after, I felt empty. I questioned my decision, and I questioned my very self. I wondered if I would be karmically punished.. that perhaps that would be my only chance to conceive. A week or so later I went back to Planned Parenthood for a follow-up exam. I remember crying while talking with the doctor, telling her of my emotions and fears. And I will never forget the genuine compassion with which she looked at me and said, “You are going to be a wonderful mother some day.”

          She gave me some clarity, and some perspective, and some assurance that I could be confident in my choice. And in my own way, my abortion was an act of love. An act that took a part of my very soul, but one which I do not regret. I made the choice to forego early motherhood, so that I could build a life that my future children deserved. And I stand firmly in my  belief that every woman deserves that choice.

          • Paisleyplaidco

            I know this is going to sound quite insensitive,so I apologize, but I’m really trying to digest what you wrote as truth. In this forum you have shown yourself to be a debater, so I would expect no less since you like to have the last word, always.

            Assuming it’s truth…….

            I feel great sadness and pity for you. In fact, my heart aches for you, that even in reflection you still say you have no regret of your decision.

            I find your comments full of hypocrisy and contradiction.

            I am trying to wrap my mind around how you could possibly equate your abortion as an act of love. Perhaps self love, but ending another life because it is inconvenient to your particular lifestyle is anything , but love.

            I find it interesting that you study a profession that should be based on ethics and law, yet even now see nothing wrong with ending the life of your own child. Furthermore, you state that you believe that every woman deserves ” that choice.” What about the potential (50% chance)woman that was growing inside of you? You snuffed out her choice. Every woman but her, deserves a choice??

            I guess I’m just always blown away by the blatant hypocrisy of the pro-choice movement. Every woman deserves a choice, but in truth the very thing that you stand for(pro-choice)you’ve eliminated for the one growing inside another person’s body. It would be much more approporiate to call it “Pro-self.”

            And lastly, isn’t the basis for women’s rights that of empowerment and advancement?? Tell me, isn’t it more empowering when you take responsibility for your actions, instead of opting out of repsonsiblility for convenience sake??

            I would bet your mother feels very empowered by the fact that she stuck by her children in the face of adversity and fulfilling her parental responsiblity rather than eliminating them.

            Do we care that generations of (aborted) women have been eliminated all in the name of empowerment and women’s rights?? Seems a bit ironic. Are we as women really advancing? show more show less

          • Lesgf8

            Just because I don’t regret my decision, does not mean that I have not questioned it. If I were to be completely honest, there have been times where I have felt regret, but it does not change what happened, or the choice I made. Instead, I have made peace.

            Perhaps you do not see it as an act of love, and perhaps it was insensitive of me framing it in that light given the nature of this site. But for me, and millions of other women, who want to give our future children stabile and loving homes – with two parents who have educations and good jobs, who can provide opportunities for them – that is love. 

            It was not a matter of “inconvenience.” Getting stuck at a red light on the way to a job interview is an inconvenience. Getting pregnant as an uneducated teenager is life shattering. Any young woman who is in that situation has the right to make her own choice, and it need not be the same as mine. 

            It was also not about “empowerment.” The only thing empowering about the situation, is that I own my actions after the fact, but I did not feel empowered at the time. Just as I would not have felt empowered had I given birth – I would have been very scared.

            I understand you do not agree with my decision, and that’s fine. But, I do ask that you respect the fact that it was an important and very emotional, personal, and life changing decision for me, that has already been made. I ask that you do not assume you know why I did that, or that I somehow didn’t respect that I had a life growing within me. It is very easy to cast judgement, it is harder to understand.

          • Elisa

            Hi. I have been out of town, but have thought of you often and your
            response to me. I would first like to say I am sorry for your loss all
            those years ago. It is a brave thing to share your story in such detail.

            I too have a similar story. I got pregnant at 19 myself
            and had to also make a very hard decision. For me I was young and totally messed up. I had lost my mother at the age of 12 and had no real role models to guide me. God knows I was freaked out when I saw those two lines! I grew up poor also and was 1 of 5 children. I was poor, but oh so loved and that is what motivated me to carry my child to term and parent him against all odds. My son is now 11 and there is not a birthday of his  that goes by that I don’t thank God for giving me the strength to do the right thing.Our life has not been easy by any means, but I believe (just as in your case) my son will one day be a  strong young man with incredible character and appreciation of the opportunities given to him.

            That is the whole point. Yes, he was an accident, a mistake, however would it be fair to look at my son and all those millions of little aborted faces and say “would you rather have this hard life and see what happens or no life at all?”No one should have the right to decide that for another person. You and I had 19 years of life before we came to that cross roads. All the children killed don’t get to make mistakes or accomplish great things like becoming a lawyer or doctor or teacher.

            And as far as being a good mother to future children ( having two parents, a good career, nice home etc), well my son and his two younger sisters have that now :) But none of that is guaranteed to last. I could lose my husband like my dad lost my mother. I could get laid off and my home could go into foreclosure. All those things are just “things”.
            A life is not something that should happen because of circumstances. You see?

            I do pray that you get the opportunity to become a mother again some day. Enjoy every minute of it!

            (I would like to remind all
            my pro-choice people at this time to remember the word COMPASSION.
            Although we stand firm in our beliefs that abortion is the ending of a
            life and NEVER the right choice we are dealing with people. Hurting and scared
            people. Yelling and/or judging those who have chosen abortion will
            never “win this battle.)

            Thank you for the thoughts and prayers. I respect and admire the choice you made, though it was not one I felt I could have undertaken.

    So if you believe that we’re animals,  you believe that killing the unborn (and them being animals?) makes it ok? Wow ~ your intention to change the actual English language to prove your point  doesn’t quite make it ~  and if you think you can reasonably debate killing of animals ~ wait till PETA hear about this! In the meantime, we’ll be praying for you!

    • Lesgf8

      “We are animals” is not a belief, it is a fact. I’m not sure why it is so hard to accept for some of the commenters here. And I’m not sure where I attempted to “change the actual English language.”

        The comment that your intention to change the actual English language is that animals and humans are not one in the same ~ it’s just  not so. And possibly, if you were open to the truth versus what fits your vocabulary, you may prosper. My daughter is a big advocate for the rights of animals and such would never conform to your ideology that to discard or murder life were ethical by any means. Take time to read your Bible and May God Bless you!

          Humans are animals. How are they not?

          • Lee

            Humans are collections of atoms too. So we may do to them what we do to say, sticks and stones? The problem here is a missing word, humans are indeed animals, but they are not *just* animals. Nor are they only bags of chemicals.

            So where does “drinking the Kool-aide” come from??

          • Tired of the the Stupidity

            Some radical End-of-the-World cultist laced kool-aid with cyanide and drank it commiting mass-suicide.

            Humans have souls and were created in the image of God. You choose to believe what you want but that doesn’t change the truth ~ just as abortion is morally wrong and whether you think were animals or acknowledge that we’re humans, doesn’t change that abortion is morally wrong. I wouldn’t even think to do to my pets what you believe is acceptable to do to humans or any life. Let us not discard the gift of life.

        Since we’re all animals, you’d better get out your bible and dust it off. Start praying too….

          What are you even talking about? And who is this ominous “they”?

  • Inhocsigno4

    Oh, hell no!!!(excuse my language) When in the hell was it decided for us to give our money to a morally-deficient group?  Who the hell made this happen?  Oh wait, the libtarded, rebellious, middle-aged-now-dying-out-generation, that our new youth empowered-by-the-truth-so-we-don’t-have-to-act-like-the-morons-on-the-idiot-box-that-promoted-baby-killing-and-smoking(e.g.)-to-look-cool generation will bring THE END OF ABORTION!!!  MITCH DANIELS ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! planneDparEnthoodplAnnedparenTHood…(creepy, isn’t it?)

    Oooooh, Elisa told you(wanna-be lawyer)!  I noticed how you were rendered response-less to her message AND changed the subject, too.  In the world of psychology, these two clues SCREAM that you were beat. Well, in the very least this fabulous website has got you included in some dialogue, or should I say poly-logue. Do you realize you are trying to tell everybody off, but as I have already mentioned, Elisa silenced you. I must say, it is very flattering how engaged you have become with this ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS PRO-LIFE WEBSITE.  BTW:  62% of Americans= PRO-LIFE!!!

    • Lesgf8

      Wow. Just, wow. 

      I don’t respond immediately and that means I’m “beat”? Really?

      Bask in the glory, then, sycophantic philistine. It’s probably the most fun you’ve had all day.

  • Paisleyplaidco

    I know this is going to sound quite insensitive,so I apologize, but I’m really trying to digest what you wrote as truth.  In this forum you have shown yourself to be a debater, so I would expect no less since you like to have the last word, always.
     
    Assuming it’s truth…….
     
    I feel great sadness and pity for you. In fact, my heart aches for you, that even in reflection you still say you have no regret of your decision.  

    I find your comments full of hypocrisy and contradiction.
     
    I am trying to wrap my mind around how you could possibly equate your abortion as an act of love. Perhaps self love, but ending another life because it is inconvenient to your particular lifestyle is anything , but love.
     
    I find it interesting that you study a profession that should be based on ethics and law, yet even now see nothing wrong with ending the life of your own child. Furthermore, you state that you believe that every woman deserves ” that choice.” What about the potential (50% chance)woman that was growing inside of you? You snuffed out her choice.  Every woman but her, deserves a choice??

    I guess I’m just always blown away by the blatant hypocrisy of the pro-choice movement. Every woman deserves a choice, but in truth the very thing that you stand for(pro-choice)you’ve eliminated for the one growing inside another person’s body. It would be much more approporiate to call it “Pro-self.”
     
    And lastly, isn’t the basis for women’s rights that of empowerment and advancement?? Tell me, isn’t it more empowering when you take responsibility for your actions, instead of opting out of repsonsiblility for convenience sake??
     
    I would bet your mother feels very empowered by the fact that she stuck by her children in the face of adversity and fulfilling her parental responsiblity rather than eliminating them.

    Do we care that generations of (aborted) women have been eliminated all in the name of empowerment and women’s rights?? Seems a bit ironic.   Are we as women really advancing?
