This seems to start out as a good quote:
I am pro-life. I believe strongly in the value of living beings on this planet. I celebrate life in a variety of ways through my daily activities and spiritual life.
I could go along with that. But, you probably figure there’s more to the quote than what is above. You’re right, there is. Here is the remainder of the quote:
I recognize the lives gained through abortion. I see the lives of women and their children who are stronger and more stable because of a decision toward abortion…. A decision about abortion is decidedly pro-life. It is a respectful and moral option….
Did I mis-read this??? “The lives gained through abortion???” A decision favoring abortion is “decidedly pro-life???” It’s a respectable, moral option??? But, she goes on, appealing to the conservative crowd:
Luckily, if you do not share this place on the spectrum in the discussion, Roe v. Wade also protects women from forced abortion. Therefore, you have the power to decide that abortion would not be a good decision for you and focus on the two other pregnancy options — parenting or adoption.
So this is why abortion is acceptible in America. It’s not forced, nor is it denied. If you don’t want to abort, you can parent the child or put it up for adoption. If you don’t like those options, you can abort. It’s all in your power! This is almost as bad, if not worse than the stance of personally opposed to abortion, but pro-choice.
Before I forget, I suppose I should state who said this: It was Karen Kubby, executive director for the Emma Goldman abortion clinic. In a dinner earlier this month, she gloated about how the clinic was able to raise enough to fund over 1,100 child-murders and she hopes that this year is just as successful. Sickening!
