D.C. Leaning Toward Funding Abortions

15 12 2009

Foxnews.com is reporting that the government of Washington D.C. is leaning towards allowing the use of taxpayer dollars to fund abortions.

“We’ve already started to study the issues,” a City Council staffer said, predicting the matter could come up in the spring — along with a change allowing the District to permit medical marijuana. One possibility is that abortion coverage could be added to the D.C. Healthcare Alliance, which is the city’s taxpayer-funded health program for low-income and other residents.

D.C. Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton applauded the passage Sunday of the $1.1 trillion spending bill, which contained the abortion provision.

She has argued that the restriction created “severe hardships” for poor women in the city and that the law singled them out for “unfair and unequal treatment” — since states can use their tax dollars for abortion services.

My question for Ms. Norton would be, “What about the severe hardships you’re creating for the babies of those poor women?” And doesn’t this legislation target poor and minority babies? How’s that for racist?

If I was a tax-paying resident of D.C., I’d be pretty upset for the city creating even more “services” with my tax dollars instead of using them for the highest-priority needs of the city.

What Abortionists Say

11 12 2009

I found this post at Pro-Life Blogs. It was posted by Sarah Terzo at Clinic Quotes. I have to say that after reading it, I was appalled at the coldblooded and clinical way in which these “doctors” describe the acts they are committing.

“If I see a case…after twenty weeks, where it frankly is a child to me, I really agonize over it because the potential is so imminently there…On the other hand, I have another position, which I think is superior in the hierarchy of questions, and that is “who owns this child?” It’s got to be the mother.” (2)

The late Dr. James MacMahon, who performed D&X (also known as Partial Birth) abortions

**********************************************

“I dare say any thinking sensitive individual can’t not realize that he is ending life or potential life.” (3)

Abortionist Dr. Charles Bender

**********************************************

“A lot of people say they’re killing their baby. You get a lot of that. Some people afterwards get very upset and say ‘I killed my baby.’ Or even before, they say ‘My circumstances are such that I can’t keep it, but I’m killing my baby.’ They wouldn’t rather have the baby, and give it up for adoption either. If you go into that with them they will say that they could never do that…and yet they still consider it killing the baby…well, they are killing a baby. I mean, they are killing something that would develop into maturity…” (4)

Clinic Worker Dora Greenwald

*********************************************

“When you do a D & C most of the tissue is removed by the Olden forceps or ring clamp and you actually get gross parts of the fetus out. So you can see a miniature person so to speak, and even now I occasionally feel a little peculiar about it because as a physician I’m trained to conserve life and here I am destroying life.” (5)

Dr. Benjamin Kalish, abortionist

*********************************************

“It [abortion] goes against all things which are natural. It’s a termination of a life, however you look at it.”(7)

Abortionist Robert Harris

********************************************

“[The author] said “Is this a fair way of expressing what you have just said, Doctor? You tell the mother “because your baby is defective, you have the right to kill it or not to kill it. If you choose to kill it, I will do the killing.” “Of course,” he [the abortionist] said. “There is no other way to say it and be honest.” (8)

Conversation with an abortion doctor

If any of your pro-abortion friends tries to argue for abortion by using the “it’s not a baby yet” argument, just direct them to these quotes. And to Clinic Quotes. I daresay that most of your pro-abortion friends are not as jaded and coldblooded as these doctors.

Tiller Killer Says More On Way

7 06 2009

Looks like abortionist George Tiller’s killer, Scott Roeder, is playing on the pro-abortion crowd’s conspiracy theories. He called the AP from jail and said that more killings are planned across the country. Here’s the story.

Roeder told the AP he know of “similar events planned around the country” as long as abortion is legal.

He would not elaborate.

Again, lest any pro-abortion folks accuse me of advocating unlawful violence to end the immoral act of abortion, I want to repeat that I believe that Scott Roeder’s actions were wrong. Period.

I’d also like to repeat that we should not forget that Tiller’s actions, while maybe not illegal (at least according to any court of law), were also wrong. We can’t forget about the thousands of babies he killed in the womb.





Baby Killer Tiller Shot, Killed at Church

31 05 2009

UPDATE: Christina from Real Choice cautions against automatically thinking that Tiller’s killer was from the pro-life side. He left a lot of victims besides the babies he killed.

UPDATE: Photo of Tiller’s body leaving the church: Body of George Tiller being removed from Reformation Lutheran... on Twitpic
The Wichita Eagle is reporting that abortionist George Tiller was shot and killed today while entering his church.

Tiller has long been a focal point of protest by abortion opponents because his clinic, Women’s Health Care Services at 5701 E. Kellogg, is one of the few in the country where late-term abortions are performed.

“We are shocked at this morning’s disturbing news that Mr. Tiller was gunned down,” anti-abortion group Operation Rescue said in a statement on its Web site. “Operation Rescue has worked for years through peaceful, legal means, and through the proper channels to see him brought to justice. We denounce vigilantism and the cowardly act that took place this morning. We pray for Mr. Tiller’s family that they will find comfort and healing that can only be found in Jesus Christ.”

Obviously, this act was the wrong way to go about ending the evil of abortion. And of course, it’s sad that this man led the life he did and, barring a miraculous last-moment act of repentance, is now starting an eternity in hell. Having said that, it is good that there is one less person in this world who is willing to kill babies in the womb.

On a different note, I would say that any church who would have accepted Tiller as a member can not be truly considered a Christian church.
