Have They No Shame?

The pro-choice crowd always goes ballistic when pro-lifers publically show the graphic images of abortion.  And that is certainly understandable.  After all, genocide is more palatable when no one but the killer sees it.

Now, in their fight for secrecy, abortion apologists are saying that we should not be allowed to show these pictures in the public because they may inflict emotional trauma on women. 

Like I said many times before, the gall and hypocrisy of these people has no limits.

Let’s make one thing clear.  The only women who might be emotionally damaged by seeing these images are those who have had abortions.  After all, women who have not had abortions have no reason to be traumatized by them.  In other words, it is abortion that causes the damage not the pictures of abortion.  If that were not the case, the effect of the graphic images would be the same on women who’ve had abortions and those who haven’t.  But that is not what happens.

When abortion apologists say that women who’ve had abortions would not be traumatized if they didn’t actually see what they had done, it is just more evidence of the paternalistic attitude these people have toward women.  The fact is that the abortion industry survives only because it will go to absolutely any lengths to keep its customers and the public in the dark.   

Now if that is not true, here is a way to resolve this whole problem.  If the abortion industry is so concerned about post-aborted women being traumatized by seeing these images, why don’t they show them to their customers before they do the abortion?  That way, the women who might be traumatized could make another “choice” and no woman would ever again be able to claim that she didn’t know what she was doing.

Of course, that’s the very reason this will never happen.  Abortion profiteers know that many, if not most, of their customers would fly out the door if they saw beforehand what abortion really is.  That’s why they would rather them not get that sort of information until after the abortion is over and the money is in the bank.        

The bottom line is, the pro-choice gang has inflicted a staggering emotional trauma on American women, and now they are trying to blame it on the people who tried to prevent the abortions in the first place.

Just Show Me the Money

Now that the Democrats are back in control of congress, we can expect the shameless abortion lobby to renew its call for more government funded abortions.

Isn't it interesting that, on one hand, these people say that abortion is a private decision in which the government has no right to be involved.  Then, out of the other side of their mouth, they demand that the government pay for abortions and force even pro-life taxpayers to buy abortions for other people. 

In other words, having an abortion is supposed to be a choice, but paying for an abortion which you didn't even have is not.  And even people who recognize abortion as the cold-blooded murder of a helpless child are not to be exempted.   

Our enemies defend this naked hypocrisy by pointing out that government often requires taxpayers to pay for things with which they disagree.  For example, they will say that people who are opposed to war have to pay taxes which fund the military.  But remember, their argument is that government has no right to even be involved in the abortion issue. 

So the question is, why should government pay for something which the recipients of those funds say is none of the government's business?  After all, if we concluded that national defense was none of the government's business, we would not use tax money to buy jet fighters.

As for their assertion that when a woman can't afford an abortion she is, in effect, denied her constitutional right to abortion, let's not forget that just because someone has a right to do something doesn't mean the government has an obligation to pay for it.  Americans have the right to own guns, but the government is not required to provide free pistols to poor people.  We have a right to free speech, but the government doesn't buy newspapers and public address systems for poor people. 

And, of course, if you really want to hear the godless left squeal like pigs caught under a fence, suggest that since every American has a constitutional right to the free exercise of religion, the government has an obligation to purchase Bibles for poor churches.
