How the Left Uses Words to Manipulate You

See the source image

Democrats:  Call a spade a spade?  Never

Democrats:  Truth in advertising?  Never

Democrats, Progressives and the Manipulative Media use language against us to manipulate our thoughts and get us to acquiesce to murder being ok, acquiesce to believing that giving up our free speech is real free speech!  You need to keep you wits about you and when you hear a word or phrase that seems out of whack, it probably is!  If it is coming from the Left and their media, you are about to be manipulated.  If the left and the media cannot create a thought bending word or phrase to soften the blow of their anti-American rhetoric and policies, they scream at you for being POLITICALLY INCORRECT!  The definition of Politically Correct is:  Conforming to a belief that language and practices which could offend political sensibilities should be eliminated.  in other words, Political Correctness is actually a REPRESSION OF FREE SPEECH!  Ironically, when you use BING to look up the words Politically Correct, the synonyms that are shown are socialist · communist · communistic · Bolshevik · leftist · ultra-left · anticapitalist · radical · revolutionary · militant · red · progressive · liberal · reforming · social-democrat · politically correct · Labor · Laborite · Marxist · Leninist · Marxist–Leninist · Trotskyite · Maoist · commie · lefty That should tell you all you need to know about those who promote Political Correctness as a anti-free speech tactic…

#1:  The worst  example is the Left’s labeling of an unborn BABY as a FETUS.  Following Roe V Wade, Americans repelled against the killing of babies on a wholesale basis.  The Left then began a campaign in the media and in our schools to teach that unborn BABIES are really just a blob of cells and not really a BABY, hence changing BABY to the term, FETUS.  The Origin and Etymology of “FETUS” is; “Middle English, from Latin, act of bearing young, offspring; akin to Latin fetus newly delivered, fruitful“.  As long as you can separate unborn babies from actually being a real human being, then the public can feel better about themselves for supporting the killing of a human baby.

#2:  “Racism/Racist” (xenophobia) is an example of taking a specific label that describes a specific action or an individual who performs that action and transformed it to apply to anyone the Left and their media want to silence and disparage, with or without factual basis!  The Left and the Media immediately jump to the Racism/Racist label anytime they are trying to shut someone down and squelch their free speech!  The only good news is that the left and their media has used racism as a label so much that is has lost its meaning and impact to a large degree.  But, the use of such non-factual labels does shut down free speech and an interchange of ideas and ideals that we as a society need to engage in.  When you hear anyone on the left or its media use the phrases, racist, xenophobe, islamophobe, misogynist, etc., beware that they are trying to shut down speech and use these phrases to discount any points being made by their opponents.  

#3:  “Illegal Alien” is the statutory definition to describe someone entering or remaining in this country illegally.  The dictionary describes “Alien”  …“as relating, belonging, or owing allegiance to another country or government : foreign alien residents”.      .  Illegal obviously means with legal status, hence Illegal Alien.  But, the Left and their media had to soften this phrase to make those who are in fact illegal aliens appear to be sympathetic characters.  Hence, the left and their media coined UNDOCUMENTED ALIENS, then ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT, then just IMMIGRANT!  This is a mechanism of taking a phrase and transforming it over time to mean the same thing as a generally acceptable word or phrase.  No one can argue with IMMIGRANT as all of us are immigrants or offspring of immigrants!  Then the left and their media try to silence your free speech when you use the phrase illegal alien by saying that God made all people so how can the immigrants be ILLEGAL.  By mixing God with Illegal, they conflate the two into an illogical but within their own bubble an effective speech killer.  Sometimes they over think their wordsmithing to the point of absurdity!  

There are many examples of the left and their media using various forms of wordsmithing to warp meanings and trap you into  questioning your own values!  For more on this, I recommend that you watch this short video from Praeger U:

If you unfortunate and for some reason have to watch “news” on CNN, MSNBC, NBC, CBS, or ABC, put on your “word helmet” to protect yourself from getting sucked into agreeing with their word warp!  If it sounds nuts, it probably is…  Remember, an unborn BABY is a BABY no mater how long the BABY has occupied the womb.  the Killing of a BABY no matter its age, is murder, PERIOD.

Overturning Roe v Wade, Why, How, and When?

First of all, you need to know a couple of facts surrounding Roe V. Wade.

  1. The Supreme Court’s decision on Roe V. Wade was fundamentally based on a false “right” that is not in the US Constitution either explicitly or implied, that is the “Right to Privacy”.  At the same time, the right to life is explicitly stated in the 14th Amendment of the Constitution.  Further, Federal Law explicitly provides for a double homicide if a pregnant mother is murdered resulting in the death of her unborn child.  Clearly Federal law recognized the unborn child as a life!  Over 30 States have similar double homicide laws!
  2. The Left always clings to what is known as “Settled Law” or more technically known as “stare decisis“, which literally translates as “to stand by decided matters”. 
    1. One, there is NO provision in the US constitution that recognizes settled law as binding on future Supreme Court decisions regarding similar or related matters! 
    2. Two, many prior court decisions have been overturned by subsequent courts in order to remedy MISTAKES by earlier courts.  New facts may evolve that make the earlier decisions moot or based on false assumptions.  Sometimes politically motivated court decisions are reversed by more balanced courts.  No one attributes infallibility to one or all of the Supreme Court Justices and they can make mistakes just like anyone else.  A couple of examples include these cases that the Left loved but will not mention when discussing settled law that has been overturned:
      1. Gay Sex Ban:  Bowers v. Hardwick (1986):  SCOTUS upheld the Georgia law forbidding oral or anal sex between two persons of the same sex.  In 2003, the Supreme Court decided the case of Lawrence v. Texas by rejecting Texas’s anti-sodomy law, essentially declaring that the Bowers decision was incorrect. Justice Anthony Kennedy’s majority opinion stated, “Bowers was not correct when it was decided, and it is not correct today. It ought not to remain binding precedent. Bowers v. Hardwick should be and now is overruled.”
      2. Illegal for Blacks to have Sex with Whites or to Marry:  Pace v. Alabama (1883):  SCOTUS found for Alabama law and upheld its anti-miscegenation laws that forbid blacks to have sexual relations or marry whites.  This decision was not overturned until 1967 when in Loving v. Virginia, the Supreme Court finally ruled unanimously that such laws had no legal standing and were merely state-sponsored racism.   It took over 80 years for this settled law to be overturned!  So much for time being a test for settled law!
      3. Institutionalized the Inferiority of Blacks:  1857, Dred Scott v. Sandford:  Quite simply, the 6-3 decision handed down in 1857 declared that black people were inferior to whites, weren’t and couldn’t be U.S. citizens, had no right to file federal lawsuits, and were property that couldn’t be taken from their owners without due process. Furthermore, western territories could no longer ban slavery, and slaves brought into supposedly free territories were not, in fact, freed.  This decision was overturned by two US Constitutional Amendments, the 13th and 14th Amendments.  The 14th Amendment reset the equality of Blacks as citizens but also contains language that may be partly used to overturn Roe V. Wade.  It is;  “…nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”  While the horrible Dred Scott Supreme Court decision was rightfully overturned, the remedy grants the right to life to EVERY PERSON in this country.  With the advances of science, it can now be proven that a fetal heartbeat can be detected at 4 weeks!  
    3. Federal versus State Control:  Prior to Roe V. Wade, the States were free to allow or regulate or prohibit abortions.  Abortion is not reserved under Federal versus State jurisdiction in the Constitution but SCOTUS in its decision created a Federal protection umbrella for abortions by creating a “new right of privacy” that superseded State’s rights.  The Federalization of abortion in this case failed to protect the “life” of the unborn and gave the mother sole control over the life of her child.  
    4. Overturning Row V. Wade Does Not Prohibit Abortion in the US:  The left constantly states that if Row V. Wade is overturned, that Abortions will be banned in the US and that women will be subjected to coat hanger abortionists!  NOT TRUE.  If Roe V. Wade is overturned, then the control or abolition of abortion will be left to each of the 50 States to decide.  Obviously the majority of States would adopt some form of legal abortion.  

Foundation for Overturning Roe V. Wade:

Since Roe was decided in 1974, huge medical advances have been made in fetal research and knowledge of the gestation process.  DNA research has determined that at the point the female egg is fertilized by the male sperm, a new “person” is formed with DNA separate from the mother and father but made up of characteristics of both.  The chart below shows current understanding of the status of the unborn child as it develops in the womb.  There is no doubt today that the baby’s heart begins to beat after 4 weeks.  By week 5, the baby’s brain and other organs are formed!    Also, the baby had already developed pain receptors after 8 weeks of life.  In short, it is difficult to argue that a separate human being and life has not been created at conception and by the end of a month a human life is formed.  

So, a case will be brought forward based on the science to back up that life begins at conception and at the very least when the heart begins to beat at 4 weeks!  This sets up the Constitutional arguments to protect the life the unborn child that are granted in the 14th Amendment;  “…nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

See the source image

How about the Right to Privacy Argument?

This case will pit the mother’s right to privacy against the right to life of the child, with the latter being explicitly protected by the US Constitution and the former being a contrived right created by SCOTUS in deciding Roe V. Wade.  The Left has already argued many times that the Constitution often protects PEOPLE versus Citizens and the 14th Amendment grants the right to life to PEOPLE specifically.  Therefore, the left cannot argue that life protections do not apply to the unborn child since the child is not a citizen since the Constitution and the 14th Amendment protects People, not just Citizens!  Will the left hide behind “settled law”?  Of course.  But it is  weak argument given the number and seriousness of prior SCOTUS decisions that have been overturned!  Many widely acclaimed by the Left.

When will SCOTUS Overturn Roe?

Hard to say.  But once President Trump’s latest nominee to replace Kennedy is seated, it is a matter of time.  Roberts will still be an unknown but if Ginsburg or another Justice leaves the bench during the Trump Presidency, then overturning Roe is almost a certainty during Trump’s tenure.

Mother’s Day-God’s Eternal Bond

See the source imageWomen have been blessed with the ultimate gift from God, Motherhood; with it, the love that springs forth from a woman’s ability to bring new life into this world; and to care, protect, and nurture their children, and all those who are blessed to know them.  Motherhood is that natural giving quality God gave to only women and they in turn spread God’s goodness to their children, or if they are with or without children, to everyone they meet.  God’s special gifts to women provide humanity with a yearning to protect life, care for those in need, and to spread their love to those dear to them and to those they meet only casually.

God placed a mother’s love on the same level as His own for us. In Isaiah 66:13 He taught us; “As a mother comforts her child, so will I comfort you; and you will be comforted over Jerusalem.” Mothers, and women without child, have the unique ability to comfort those they meet in need, and the ability to protect those who cannot protect themselves, and to offer love to the loveless.

This Mother’s Day, honor your own mother but also all women you meet.  Know that they have been given the gift of life from God and the awesome responsibility to ensure that life is not only created through them, but all life is nurtured and protected by them.

This Mothers Day, pray for those mothers who have or are contemplating an abortion Consider their agony when you think about God’s gift to these special persons and their place in God’s plan.  Each and every life created by God at the time of their conception is a new life made in the image of God Himself.  Each unborn child that is given up to abortion is a part of God Himself and an affront to His greatness, mercy and love.

Seek Life and enjoy God’s Eternal Bond.

Finally, A US President Who Stands for the Most Vulnerable!

From Our “Christianity In Vogue” Site

Update:  President Trump’s Address to March for Life:

March for LifePresident Donald Trump will address the annual March for Life in Washington, D.C. live from the White House Rose Garden on Friday, January 19th, 2018.  Our President is the first President to address the March for Life group live via a live video feed!  This unprecedented endorsement of the March for Life, Pro-Life, advocacy is a watershed moment for a path to limit abortions in the US since Roe v Wade was decided in 1973.  Since this court decision, at least 58,000,000 babies have been killed at the hands of abortionists!  President Trump’s stand on eliminating abortion confirms that he is NOT A RACIST!  Abortion kills more babies of color than any other cause of death in those communities.  President Trump is trying to eliminate this left-wing Democrat ethnic cleansing practice!

Top Banner

Black Genocide:  Of these 58 million infanticide deaths, 15.5 million of these precious lives were black babies!  According to BlackGenocide.org;  “Minority women constitute only about 13% of the female population (age 15-44) in the United States, but they underwent approximately 36% of the abortions.  According to the Alan Guttmacher Institute, black women are more than 5 times as likely as white women to have an abortion. On average, 1,876 black babies are aborted every day in the United States.”

Black Abortions since 1973

Trump to Protect Healthcare Providers Who Object to Performing Abortions!

Yesterday, President Trump signed an Executive Order that creates a new division under the HHS Civil Rights division to prevent healthcare providers who object to abortions from being forced or coerced to do so!  According to HHS Secretary Eric Hargan,  “President Trump promised the American people that his administration would vigorously uphold the rights of conscience and religious freedom…”  “That promise is being kept today.”  President Trump is the most overtly Pro-Life President since infanticide was legalized in the US in 1973.

So, enjoy your tax cut windfall and thank our President for not only improving our economy but for protecting the most vulnerable citizens of the US, our unborn children!  To my Black and Hispanic readers, remember that the founder of Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger, who was a left-wing eugenicist who vowed to rid this nation of blacks and Hispanics, uttered these unbelievable racist words:

  1. “We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population.”
  2. “I accepted an invitation to talk to the women’s branch of the Ku Klux Klan.”
  3. “They are (people of color)…human weeds,’ ‘reckless breeders,’ ’spawning… human beings who never should have been born.”
  4. “Birth control is nothing more or less than…weeding out the unfit.” (unfit include people of color, mentally ill, or disabled)

Dr. Alveda King (niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.) remarked the error of Planned Parenthood’s abortion-on-demand corporate ideology:

“The most obvious practitioner of racism in the United States today is Planned Parenthood, an organization founded by the eugenicist Margaret Sanger and recently documented as ready to accept money to eliminate black babies.”

We Are At War With ISIS, But Not US Infanticide (Graphic Content)

Why Is This Not AcceptableBut This Is! Actual Pictures

ISIS Death Toll Since 2013 (1):

Approximately: 40,000

US Infanticide Deaths Since 2013 (2):

Approximately 4,762,000

People were shocked to see an ISIS beheading execution on television but many of those same people looked the other way when the selling of aborted baby body parts we uncovered and reported by the Center for Medical Progress, an advocacy group that reports on medical ethics.  In fact, the abortion industry was able to find a pro-abortion judge to block the videos; “The Los Angeles Superior Court order issued Tuesday prohibits the Center for Medical Progress from releasing any video of three high-ranking StemExpress officials taken at a restaurant in May. ”  (This case will be reviewed by the US Supreme Court this year.) 

If people had to confront the real horrors of abortion, seeing actual medieval procedures, the brutality of this industry, and the callous disregard for life, they would change their views on abortion. It is not safe nor should it be legal in a Judeo-Christian nation.  There is always at least one life lost with abortion.

Just pretend that you were reading a novel about a terrorist group torturing its victims.  This is a bit graphic but bear with me.

Novel Excerpt:  “ISIS Brutality”  (Not a real novel)

“A war-weary Donny Brown was embedded with an Iraqi Army counter insurgency group outside of Mosul.  He had spent the better part of the year with the Iraqi Army who had the mission to drive out ISIS and other terrorist who had dug in between Baghdad and Mosul.  He longed to be back home with his family in the warmth and comfort of their Mid-West home,  Suddenly the troops were surprised and then overwhelmed by heavily armed ISIS fighters.  All but two of the Iraqi troops were cut down by the rag-tag ISIS fighters.  Barely surviving, Brown and the two soldiers were bound, gaged and hooded, then taken to an ISIS stronghold just outside of Mosul.  Brown was restrained in an isolated, filthy, 5×5 dirt floor room and left completely in the dark.  All Brown could sense was the sounds of muffled voices and a metal on metal clicking sound.  Seconds later, Brown felt increasing pressure on his left shoulder that tightened quickly, crushing his collar-bone, just before his shoulder and arm was ripped from his body.  Burning with a white-hot searing pain in his left shoulder, the pounding surges of his blood pumping out of his body, Donny once again felt the same pressure and clamping on his right shoulder this time.  Suddenly, as before, his right arm was ripped from his pain wrapped body…”

Now, imagine Donny was a baby in his mother’s womb and she was undergoing an abortion.  The pain, the fear, the disorientation would be the same but with an added “bonus”.  You had been in the safety, the warmth and the comfort of your mother’s womb and not in a dirty 5×5 dark room when you were literally ripped limb from limb.  You would have no idea what had happened and seconds later you would be dead, just like the prisoner Donny! 

Now, imagine this happening to over 60,000,000 babies since 1973!

As a nation, we have to be better than this.  As a Christian nation, we cannot allow this to continue without expecting our God to rip us from His Grace just as our unborn babies are ripped from their mother’s womb.  We have a President who is a strict Pro-Life leader.  We need to absolutely apply a Pro-Life litmus test to the Congress men and women and Senators we vote for and help this President to rid this scourge from this nation, then from this earth. 

It is pathetic to see progressive-left activists call for taking a hard-line against human rights violations in other countries when we condone, pay for with tax payer funds, the murder of millions of unborn babies a year.

(1)  Estimated total.  There is no definitive source of ISIS responsible deaths due to the co-mingling of deaths in Iraq and Syria that could have been attributed partially to Iran, Iraqi and Syrian non ISIS combatants.

(2)  Based on Planned Parenthood’s Guttmacher Institute data.  2016 and 2017 are estimated.

Hollywood Decadence Mirrors Progressive-Left Societal Goals

Hollywood Left(Reprinted from “Christianity-In-Vogue”)

The single most important goal of the Progressive-Left is to remove God from our society. By removing God, you remove morality.  When you remove morality, you have created a society where there are no absolute values or moral certitude.  In other words, sexual deviance, disrespect for life, lawlessness, and ethical decline become the societal norm.  Hollywood is the mirror of the Progressive-Left’s moral relativism that is driving pop culture to redefine our nation.  Rappers talk of whores, beating women, objectifying women, and are considered as ROLE MODELS to minority youth!  Movies normalize out-of-wedlock sadomasochistic sex between “casual” sexual partners.   

Hollywood’s recent self-admission of moral and ethical deviance is merely an indicator of this societal slide into moral relativism.  Sexual favors for advancement is merely another form of human-trafficking prostitution.  Pedophilia is masked as an extension of gay behavior or rape of a minor is considered to be a right and a favor to the victim!  Movie themes push the decline of decadence with each frame to deaden the conscience of moviegoers and make abhorrent behavior be accepted as a social norm.

Are the Progressive-Left winning this war on God?  So far they have won almost every battle.  While abortion is not supported by the majority of Americans it is still permitted by the laws of our great land.  When was the first time you had to think about Transgender individuals?  Did you ever think that everyone has the “RIGHT” to change their sexual identity by merely saying they think they are a man while being a physical female or visa versa.  Then, those same individuals can enter a bathroom, shower, dorm or other facility that had been traditionally segregated by physical sexuality.  How long did it take in the last administration to change the definition of marriage that had been created by the world’s religions but appropriated by the State!

In Genesis 19:24 our Lord destroyed the evil cities of Sodom and Gomorrah;  “Then the Lord rained down burning sulfur on Sodom and Gomorrah“.  How much worse were these cities compared to our society today?  Were millions of unborn babies butchered in these cities?  Were men allowed to debase and abuse women and children with impunity?  Were human beings sold into sexual and drug slavery?

The only people who can change this direction is us!  We have a President that recognizes the role of our Lord in our land.  How do we know that he is not a “false prophet”? Matthew 7:16 tells us:  “You shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?”  Ask yourself, if the President was misleading us, why would he do so in the name of our Lord and ACCORDING TO HIS WORD?  We are not alone.  We have an advocate in the White House to reverse the damage that has been done by the Progressive-Left.  Will it be easy?  No!  Christ’s life was certainly not easy nor did he go along to get along!  Neither can we if we want to reclaim the gift God gave us that we know as the United States of America…

Christ Would Approve of President Trump’s “Hot” Faith and Message!

(Reposted from Christianity-In-Vogue)

Image result for revelation 3:16

One of my favorite passages is Revelation 15-17.  John was admonishing the Church at Laodicea for not being fervent in their belief in Christ and not on fire to spread the Word of the Lord.  The passage reads:

“I know your deeds; you are neither cold nor hot. How I wish you were one or the other. So because you are lukewarm — neither hot nor cold — I am about to spit you out of My mouth!  You say, ‘I am rich; I have grown wealthy and need nothing.’ But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind, and naked.…”

Christ suffered and died for each of us so it is not surprising that He would abhor Christians who were lukewarm in their faith.  The passage uses the term lukewarm as in water.  Lukewarm water when consumed, has a tendency to induce vomiting.  In verse 17, we see people bragging that they are rich, in worldly riches, but they are wretched in terms of spiritual riches.

President Trump’s passion and fervor to reignite the US Judeo-Christian values and love for one another immediately came to mind when I reread this passage today.  Love or hate him, President Trump is red-hot and nowhere near Lukewarm in his beliefs and passion to “Make American Great Again”!

President Trump does not equivocate about abortion.  To him, it is murder and the government should not support it.  His supreme court and lower court nominees will all be pro-life.  Equality of all people to Trump is a universal God-Given right and he feels it is our responsibility to strive to make everyone equal in terms of opportunity, their personal pursuit of happiness, and value to themselves and to this country.

Every principal Trump clings to he does so with passion and a red-hot fever.  His passion is directed at making our inner-cities safe, clean, and an area that provides opportunity for his residents.  He backs this up with trying to upgrade our education programs so inner-city kids have education choice and can get the base education they need to succeed in life.  He also sees neighborhood safety as part of providing for opportunity to kids that are now dodging bullets and drug dealers on their way to and from school.

So when you are trying to relate to Trump’s style and being put off by his “New York/Queens in-your-face personality”, focus on his passion and draw from it.  Passion is contagious and focusing passion on making our neighbor’s life better, making our inner-cities safe and prosperous, exporting peace to the world, and re-establishing our Judeo-Christian values, is good no matter who is at the tip of this spear.  Embrace and enjoy it…  Make sure that Christ does not look at us and think that we are not worthy and should be “spit” out.

Progressives: Pregnant Women Can Drink Alcohol and Murder their Baby?

Pregnant Drinking

Many on the Progressive Left Stand Behind the Prohibition on Pregnant Women Drinking Alcohol.

And, Thinks is it Perfectly All Right for that Same Woman to Walk out of the Bar and to Planned Parenthood and Kill her baby, No Matter How Far Along She Is! 

NY City has dictated that bar tenders and wait staff cannot refuse to serve a pregnant women an alcoholic beverage.  The city is basing this decree on their opinion that “doing so would represent discrimination under the city’s Human Rights Law.”  NYC is being somewhat consistent.  They are encouraging the drinking of alcohol by pregnant women, which is deemed to be harmful to the unborn child, and also encourage and promote the killing of the unborn children via abortion, especially minority children!

How about smoking pot, doing drugs?  The left will do anything to condone behavior that may lead to increasing abortion but stands silent when pregnant women, children, and others are gunned down in the major progressive inner-cities of this nation. 

Yet, Progressives Feign Shock if you Accused Them of Promoting a Culture of Death! 

Planned Parenthood and the United Nations’ WHO continue to press for mandatory abortions for women infected with the Zika virus but will do nothing to lift the ban of using safe pesticides, that have been proven to work in eradicating mosquitos and controlling other diseases such as malaria.  Their agenda is death of the unborn rather than the overall safety of their citizens.

Who is speaking up for the unborn?  Not very many who are in power in the US. 

How about Protecting the Human Rights or Civil Rights of the Unborn!

Trump-Pro Life & the Illegal Abortion Hypothetical

Trump and baby

IF Abortion Was Illegal,

What Should be the Penalty for the Parent(s)?

Note:  This article is written from the perspective of one who has been involved with the Pro-Life movement for years on the ground, in front of Planned Parenthood, marching for Life in the Streets, helping to create effective side-walk counseling, working to provide shelter and support for women who decided to keep their babies rather than abort them but needed help in the process, and helping to create recuperative counseling for post-abortive mothers and fathers who often suffer from suicidal tendencies, substance abuse and depression.

Consequences for Abortion:  There are zero politicians on the face of the US map that would ever say that Abortion should be made illegal with criminal penalties for the mother, father.

OOPS, except Donald Trump who is arguably not a US politician. 

But, those same politicians have no problem charging a murderer with a DOUBLE HOMICIDE  when a pregnant mother and her unborn child are murdered!  As a matter of fact, this is Federal Law in addition to most States having the same statute, even CALIFORNIA.

So, when Trump was goaded into answering the gotcha, hypothetical question, by a “CATHOLIC”, PRO ABORTION CHRIS MATTHEWS, that IF abortion was ILLEGAL, whether there should be penalties for the mother (and presumably the father if he was involved) who aborted and killed their baby.  Trump answered that he thought that IF There WAS a LAW Making Abortion ILLEGAL, that there should be penalties for all involved, including the mother and father.  He did not specify what the penalties may be even though Matthews threw out prison terms.

Before you knee-jerk into saying that Trump was wrong, consider what a thoughtful society, one that valued life, may devise as a “Penalty“. 

All Abortion Decisions are Not the Same:  When you are on a sidewalk in front of a Planned Parenthood or other abortion provider; or counseling post abortive parents; or manning a pro-life booth at a county fair; you run into all sorts of circumstances.  (Below are a few examples)

  • There is the 14-year-old girl who is being pressured by her parents to have an abortion. 

  • You have the 18-24 year old girl being pressured by her boy friend to have an abortion as he does not want to be saddled with a baby to care for. 

  • You have a married couple with several children and are pressured by their economic situation to seek an abortion. 

  • You have girls who have been raped or the victim of incest by a family member. 

  • And, you have women and men who are back for their 6th or 7th abortion who are suffering from addiction or even a mental defect. 

In all cases, a child (children) have been killed but the circumstances dictate totally different “penalties” or consequences for the consenting parent.

If Abortion was Illegal, not necessarily criminalized, what “penalties” may be imposed.  For the parents (s) of the child, there could be graduated penalties/consequences resulting from the abortion:

Consider these circumstances and the possible consequences (penalties) of making a decision to terminate a pregnancy:  (Parents and/or Family Members)

  1. Minor Children and Abortion:  A minor (mother and father) who obtained an abortion would be referred to post abortive counseling to deal with the residual mental impacts of the abortion decision on one or both of the parents.  If their parents were involved in the decision, they would also be required to attend post abortive counseling sessions.
  2. Inconvenient Abortions:  Young married or unmarried parents who decided to terminate a pregnancy would also be required to attend post-abortive counseling to mitigate the impacts of their decision.  If their decision was motivated by adverse economic conditions, perhaps additional economic counseling could be provided to help alleviate their financial problems.
  3. Rape or Incest:  If the abortion was prompted by rape or incest, then there are two levels of “penalties” that should be provided.  One, counseling to deal with the impacts of the rape or incest.  Two, post-abortive counseling to mitigate the impacts of the abortion decision.  Many who are victims of rape and incest and who have abortions suffer from a double trauma.  Feeling guilty that they were raped or the target of incest, and then the guilt over terminating their pregnancy.  These situations are the most difficult to treat.
  4. Repetitive Abortions & Substance Abuse:  Often times these are women, or wives, or couples who suffer from substance abuse and terminate 1-6 pregnancies during their addiction cycles.  This would require a dual level of “penalty”.  One would include substance abuse counseling and intervention.  Two, would be to provide post-abortive counseling to help the mother, and the father if present, with the psychological impacts from the abortion.  Often, the abortion guilt cycles into deeper drug or alcohol addiction issues so it is imperative to break the addiction cycle to eliminate the next abortion. 

Penalties for Abortion Providers

If the provider was a licensed health care professional, the penalty would include the loss of their license which is the same for any illegal medical procedure that is performed.  Worse case would probably be a manslaughter charge of some severity.  Beyond that is pure conjecture and probably a flight of fantasy. 

The real irony of this article is that

All VICTIMS of Abortion Today Should Be “Penalized” as Stated above

And Given Counseling For Their Own Well Being

The Suicide, Substance Addiction, and Mental Illness

Is Over 30% Higher for Post-Abortive Parents

Than for the Average Person!

So, Trump Was Correct. 

There Should Be “Penalties”/Consequences for Parents who would have Illegal Abortions. 

But, these “Penalties”/Consequences Could be More Humane than with the LEGAL ABORTIONS we allow today! 

The Left refuses to even consider that there are negative consequences to abortion.  They ignore the 30%+ of the Post-Abortive parents who are suffering or who have ended their own lives.

IF Abortions were to become Illegal, the First Step Would Be to Help our Youth with Their Decision Making Regarding their Sexual Activities.

We can Eliminate 99% of Abortions Today By practicing Birth Control!

Less than 1% of Abortions are performed Due to Rape or Incest (1)

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

So, I am personally glad that Trump was asked the question regarding abortion.  The Republican Establishment, pundits, and the other candidates are going bonkers saying the Trump does not understand the Pro Life movement.  I think I do, and I do not see any issues with his position.  No one knows what Trump would have come up with as far as penalties.  Hopefully he would concur with those in this article.  But, I do believe that the consequences outlined here would be considered if abortion was illegal.   I firmly believe that post-abortion counseling is vital to the health and well being of the mother and father going forward.  It can help make them better parents to their other children and help to make abortion less of an option for the next generation. 

Trump will continue to catch flack over his interview but once again, Trump has brought an issue to the forefront of this election that would have been ignored if he had not been in the 2016 Republican Primary Race!  The establishment hates this issue and will duck it at all costs!

(1) In 1989 the Alan Guttmacher Institute, now a division of Planned Parenthood surveyed 1,900 women and only 1% said they were getting an abortion because of rape or incest.  Today it is even less due to the widespread use of birth control, even in young teenagers.

Abortion Truths! Don’t be Misled by Statistics

Abortions are Not Decreasing

Give Me A Chance
Give Me A Chance

A quote often attributed to Josef Stalin regarding counting:

“It’s not the people who vote that count. It’s the people who count the votes.”

Well, the same holds true for who is counting, and how, when it comes to the number of abortions performed in the US.  Just to be clear, abortions have to include not only the mechanical, medical procedure abortions but also those induced by abortifacients (abortion pills).  Why, the baby dies in both cases!

There are two major agencies that report the number of abortions.  One is our own Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the Guttmacher Institute (GI), which is owned by Planned Parenthood.  Ironically, the CDC numbers are usually lower than those of GI!  Both agencies have been reporting a reduction in abortions since 2006. 

To understand the reduction, you should be aware of the definition of an abortion by the CDC and GI:

“For the purpose of surveillance, a legal induced abortion is defined as an intervention performed by a licensed clinician (e.g., a physician, nurse-midwife, nurse practitioner, or physician assistant) that is intended to terminate an ongoing pregnancy.”  While they not that “some” states report “medical” abortions, induced by an abortion pill, the level of this reporting is almost non-existent.  PP typically treats abortifacients in the same service as birth control pills.

The other fact that is important is that reporting IS NOT MANDATED BY LAW.  In fact, California, New Hampshire and other states do not report at all!  From the CDC website, the following statement verifies that this is a volunteer reporting regime:

“States and areas voluntarily report data to CDC for inclusion in its annual Abortion Surveillance Report. CDC’s Division of Reproductive Health prepares surveillance reports as data become available. There is no national requirement for data submission or reporting.”

 

Year GI Reporting CDC Reporting
2006 1,242,200 846,181 *
2007 1,209,640 827,609 *
2008 1,212,350 825,564 *
2009 1,151,600 789,116 *
2010 1,102,670 765,651 *
2011 1,058,490 730,322 *
2012 1,058,490 ** 699,022 *
2013-15 1,058,490 **  

* Excludes NH, CA, and at least one other state
** NRLC projection for calculation

The chart above is misleading as it does not include abortions induced by abortion pills.  Many sources claim that 2006 levels have probably been exceeded if abortifacients are included.  But, the tracking on the use of abortifacients is non-existent along with the complications associated with abortifacients.  There are no good sources of information regarding multiple uses of abortifacients over time nor any information relating to impacts on fertility for young women using abortifacients.

At a minimum, we need to require reporting on both forms of abortions as well as tracking the impacts on women over time.  Planned Parenthood and abortion proponents fear that the gathering of statistics and the data would be used to oppose abortions.  While that may be one use of the data, it is imperative for women’s health to understand the long-term physical and mental health issues for women.

Obamacare is making both forms of abortion readily available to women.  Isn’t it humane to understand the long-term impacts of the procedures and abortifacients?
