Abortion

Hollywood's relentless abortion drive

The president of the Christian Coalition of America, Roberta Combs, last Friday wrote a commentary entitled "Parents' Rights Constitutional Amendment vs. U.N.'s Convention of "Rights" of the Child."  Mrs. Combs rightfully supported the bill  --  Parents' Rights Constitutional Amendment (H. J. Res. 42)  --   authored by Michigan Republican Congressman Pete Hoekstra and co-sponsored by the Republican leader, John Boehner from Ohio, and some 100 other Members of the House of Representatives.  

This past weekend, Hollywood came out with another political movie which undermines parental rights entitled "My Sister's Keeper" starring Camerson Diaz which, although interesting, advocates the rights of children over parental rights and of course managed to insert one of Hollywood's favorite motifs of the abortion movement:  "It's my body.  It's my choice."     

In the movie, Cameron Diaz and her husband conceived a baby to produce parts, including stem cells, a kidney, etc, for their older daughter dying of cancer.  The "designer baby," now a young girl of around ten years old, brings a lawsuit to court to supposedly gain medical emancipation from her parents with the help of her attorney, a member of the ACLU, played by Alec Baldwin.

Yet another poll shows majority of Americans pro-life

For the third time in a month, another poll hase come out demonstrating that a majority of the American public is pro-life.

Earlier this week it was the Gallup poll that got the headlines, as it was the first time in that polls history that it showed over half of the public as holding a pro-life position. 

Also this month, there was a Fox News poll, indicating the same thing...more Americans are pro-life than "pro-choice".

Well now we have a third poll, this one from Rasmussen, which should put to rest exactly "how" most Americans feel about the issue.  From the story:

The Rasmussen survey, released on May 5, asked a different question than the others and found that 58 percent of Americans say abortion is morally wrong most of the time. Just twenty-five percent disagree and the rest had no opinion.

The survey found women are more strongly pro-life than men as 64 percent of women believe most abortions are morally wrong, a view shared by just 51% of men.

Earlier
this week, in Sweden, health authorities ruled that gender based
abortions are a legal and legitimate practice. A woman, who already
had two daughters, requested to know the gender of her pending
pregnancy. Six days after it was revealed that she was carrying a
girl inside her womb, she had her extracted and terminated, aborted.
I wonder how many childless parents out there might have loved to
raise that baby.

Gallup poll shows majority of Americans are pro-life

While there have been many, many polls on the abortion issue over the years, and many that have shown more people holding a pro-life vs. a "pro-choice" position, this is the first time in the history of the Gallup polling company, that their poll has shown that a majority of the American people are pro-life.  From the story:

Gallup said on Friday that a new poll, conducted May 7 to 10, found "51 percent of Americans calling themselves 'pro-life' on the issue of abortion and 42 percent 'pro-choice.' This is the first time a majority of U.S. adults have identified themselves as pro-life since Gallup began asking this question in 1995."

"The new results, obtained from Gallup's annual Values and Beliefs survey, represent a significant shift from a year ago, when 50 percent were pro-choice and 44 percent pro-life. Prior to now, the highest percentage identifying as pro-life was 46 percent, in both August 2001 and May 2002." ...

Pro-abortion crowd pushing "UN Convention on Rights of the Child"

Backers of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, a United Nations treaty, are pushing Congress to ratify the document during the Obama administration. Although the treaty contains some language supporting unborn children, it has been used to push abortion on an international scale. The Convention on the Rights of the Child "recognizes that a child needs appropriate legal protection before, as well as after birth." At the same time it "doesn't recognize a child's right to be born", and has been used by UN committees, agencies and other non-governmental organizations to promote abortion.  Meanwhile, liberal maintain the treaty won't "usurp our national sovereignty", but will "boost our credibility globally".

Pro-life opponents of the treaty in Congress are fighting back.  Rep. Pete Hoekstra and pro-life Sen. Jim DeMint have filed a parental rights amendment that would defend against some of its provisions of the Convention on the Rights of the Child.  "We better lay the groundwork," Hoekstra told AP. "The last thing you want to be is unprepared if something pops up on the radar screen."  He is concerned that the Senate will have the votes to approve the treaty despite opposition saying it would potentially overturn parental involvement laws across the country.

Susan B. Anthony and Frederick Douglass would be proud

Congressman Trent Franks, a Republican from Arizona, has introduced a bill which would make the pro-life feminist icon, Susan B. Anthony, and the black American hero, Frederick Douglass, very proud. The Franks bill, when signed into law, will prohibit the practice of, or solicitation or acceptance of funds for, race-or sex-selection abortion. Appropriately enough, the congressman has named his bill, H.R. 1822, the "Susan B. Anthony and Frederick Douglass Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act of 2009."

In Monday's "The Washington Times," Congressman Franks points out that in America, according to a recent U.S. census, abortion clinics are "engaged in an insidious form of racial and sex-based discrimination." A Harvard University economist has estimated that more than 100 million women were "demographically missing" from the world because of widespread and underreported practices of prenatal sex selection.

This practice of aborting girls, including in America, is flourishing even though an astounding 86% of the American people support legislation which will prohibit abortion based on sex selection.

Congressman Franks, in his "Washington Times" column, condemns as equally repulsive, the widespread practice of aborting black babies in America. Indeed, an astounding 50% of black babies are killed before they have a chance of entering this world. One of out every two black babies are aborted in America today! Unborn black babies are five times more likely to be killed than unborn white babies.

FOCA coming "sooner, rather than later" Democrat says

“Sooner, rather than later.”  That’s when a leading Democrat in Congress says they will introduce the radical pro-abortion “Freedom of Choice Act” – a bill which would overturn all current state and federal restrictions on abortion.  No more waiting periods.  No more parental consent.  No more ban on partial-birth abortions.

When President Obama was campaigning for President, he let it be known in no uncertain terms what his position was on abortion.  Within minutes of taking the Oath of Office, the official White House website was changed to add language supporting pro-abortion policies.  Obama has appointed numerous liberals from pro-abortion organizations like Emily’s List and the National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL) to critical positions in the government.

Barack Obama: most radical pro-abortion president in history

Opponents of Barack Obama during the presidential campaign warned the independents and other fence sitters that the administration of Obama would be the most radical in history, not only in the realm of economics, but possibly in the foreign policy area, and most definitely in the realm of social issues policy.

Barack Obama has fulfilled those predictions in the space of the first few weeks of his administration and has already become the most radical pro-abortion president in American history. The latest evidence of this occurred today when an amendment to the pork-filled nearly half trillion FY09 Omnibus bill -- which Obama promised to sign with close to 9,000 pork projects and which would protect the pro-life Kemp-Kasten Amendment, in place since 1985 -- failed in the Senate by a vote of 39-55.
