I hate including a link to their silly "journal" but I suppose I must, just for proper attribution purposes.
All I can say is they love dead babies, and they love moms who kill them.
In order to prevent themselves and their readers from thinking about the very inconvenient fact that abortion kills a human being --- as well as the other inconvenient fact that abortion is never medically necessary --- they distract by writing the word, "rape" many times.
As if that were the issue.
Ultrasounds Save Lives
They are afraid that a mom might see an ultrasound of that little guy or gal, and be moved to change her mind about killing/aborting. They are afraid of that because it has happened many times. Many moms have changed their minds when seeing the little person on an ultrasound.
dailykos doesn't want "choice." They only want abortion.
When Did My Party Become the Abortion Party?
Governor Walker has a great pro-life record. That's why I voted for him, even though I have been a registered Democrat since 1969 --- the year I first became old enough to vote.
Here's a quote from the dailykos article:
Since penetration of a woman's body without her consent is rape, and since Republican Legislatures are legalizing just that, Republican legislators should be brought up on rape charges. That includes Governor Walker, every Legislator who voted for a state mandated rape law, and every Governor who signed one into law.
Law suits need to be filed by women's groups. The American Medical Association should sign on as co-plaintiffs, refusing to be forced into being accomplices. Individuals subjected to such assaults should file class action suits.
All of us who are appalled at this twisting of our laws in order to hide Republican assaults upon our families, friends, and neighbors need to be raising our voices in righteous outrage.
This author actually wrote this with a straight face?
Of course she or he doesn't mean it. It's just pretense.
Pro-aborts love to pretend to burst with righteous indignation.
An ultrasound is a little sensor on the tummy, while you're fully clothed. (Maybe you have to pull your shirt up so the sensor can "sense" better?) I know this because I've had six kids.
I am sad to say that I have also had two abortions, may God forgive me.
(I received Absolution for these abortions, of course, before returning to the Sacraments for which I had longed so earnestly.)
Somebody on EWTN said that in the past, one could not simply receive Absolution for abortion in regular Confession. The priest had to go ask the bishop for special permission because it was rare back then --- before 1973. The penitent had to wait for that permission from the bishop.
Unfortunately, abortion is no longer that rare.
Still, I wish I could have my babies back. I think of them always, every day. I miss them. I wish I could see them again, but they are with the Lord. I was the one who sent them there prematurely.
The worst thing about an ultrasound is that it can hurt the baby's ears, I've heard. It makes a loud screech, that only the baby can hear.
(That is, of course, unless you want to promote abortion. In that case, everything about ultrasound is bad. That's why dailykos is so against it.)
I wish grievously, sadly, powerfully, that someone would have "forced" an ultrasound on me on those two dates. Because then my babies would be here with me now.
No, not "might."
One commenter posted this brilliant (NOT) insight to the article:
" . . . I asked a close friend, who's also conservative and devoutly Catholic -- what he thought of this. And he put it perfectly -- the way any thinking, feeling person on the Right should see it: "Abortion is wrong. But destroying the dignity of women doesn't make it any less wrong."[NB: Why all the labels? "Thinking?" ---- "feeling?"---- "on the Right?" ---- "conservative"?" What about the actual issue --- a baby has died, or will die in abortion? Why doesn't it make perfect sense to do as much as possible to prevent that death? ]
Would that all religious conservatives had that sensibility."
Abortion destroys the dignity of all involved.
Abortion destroys the life of a healthy baby.
Abortion also sometimes destroys the life of the mom, as well. (We don't really know how frequently moms are killed by abortion.)
If you don't want "penetration," don't get an abortion. Just let the little guy or gal continue to grow until she or he is ready to meet the world and continue growing in the outside world, as nature intended.
Yes, abortion IS wrong. But, just making that statement doesn't do anything or change anything. It's static.
Abortion is much more invasive and penetrating than any rape could ever be.
If you find yourself unexpectedly pregnant, be grateful that your body is nice and healthy. Then, start checking out all the sources of help that are out there, whether you decide to raise the little guy or gal yourself, or to look for an adoptive family.
Be sure to start with Title IV-D at your local county, if you are keeping the little guy or gal. Title IV-D is a federal program, totally free in every county of the U.S.
I will write more about Title IV-D in another post.
