What do you think of when someone says "As American as ???" Yup. If you are like me you think Baseball, Apple Pie, maybe even Rock and Roll. Elvis ETC. But the one thing I do not think about to describe America IS Abortion. That all may change soon...
That is if some in the Movement get their way. It is not a new concept. Some have wanted to GLORIFY Abortion for years. But the Latest incarnation of drive toward this is by our Idiot of the Week.
Now she is not stupid. She even tells the TRUTH. Abortion IS the Killing of a Life. But her point of view is SO? It is GOOD. I'm not making this up. According to The American Spectator - 'Abortion Is as American as Apple Pie' By George Neumayr on 1.19.12 @ 6:09AM
In 2004, Planned Parenthood began selling T-shirts emblazoned with the declaration, "I Had An Abortion." This was part of its campaign to "demystify and destigmatize" the practice. Prominent abortion advocates felt at the time that their movement had grown too timid.You DO see how sick these people really are? It is MORAL for them to MURDER an Innocent Life? It is GOOD because the Life is a "liability, a threat, and a danger to the mother and to the other members of the family."Seriously. I almost wish THEIR Parents felt this way before they were Born.
Alexander Sanger, the grandson of Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger, argued that feminists needed to go beyond the rhetoric of "choice," jargon he regarded as cowardly and vague. They should celebrate abortion directly and unapologetically, he said. After all, the unborn child, as an annoying interloper, deserves to die. "The unborn child is not just an innocent life," he wrote, but a "liability, a threat, and a danger to the mother and to the other members of the family."
Amidst such comments, the website Imnotsorry.net sprung up. The founders of the site explained that it "was created for the purpose of showing women that exercising their legal right to terminate their pregnancy is not the blood-splattered guilt trip so many make it out to be." Space was provided on it for women to post testimonials expressing their "relief" and "joy" after an abortion.
Ron Fitzsimmons, president of the National Coalition of Abortion Providers, also found "choice" rhetoric insipid. "We have nothing to hide," he said to the press. "The work we're doing is good. We are there to help women, and it's important to talk about abortion so that it's not a stigma."
Abortion, he said, is more than just a choice. It is a good choice: "We can no longer respond to [pro-life arguments] with 'it's your right to choose.' We need to recapture the notion that abortion is a difficult moral choice for women, but one that is, in fact, a moral choice."
But now we have a NEW advocate for this SICK and Demented attempt to Glorify MURDER...
These days abortion advocates are considerably more circumspect, returning to the "safe, legal, and rare" formula that Bill Clinton popularized. But a few still hunger for raw honesty. In apparent anticipation of the upcoming Roe v. Wade anniversary, Salon interviewed one of them on Monday. Merle Hoffman, a New York "abortion provider," told the online publication that the "pro-choice movement is uncomfortable with itself," as it still treats abortion as a regrettable act. "I've always said that, and I've always believed that," she said. "We're not comfortable with the banner we're under.""I've always said that, and I've always believed that," she said. "We're not comfortable with the banner we're under." Because you KNOW it's a LIE. "You know how many women have had abortions?"Know how many people have Raped Women, Robbed Banks? Guess we should just make that Legal too. "Abortion is as American as apple pie." Complete and utter BS...Apple Pie does NOT MURDER Innocent, Defenseless Children. Abortion DOES. Abortion is LOVE??? You are a SICK, Demented, Murdering, Idiot.
This makes no sense to Hoffman, given the large number of Americans implicated in abortion. "You know how many women have had abortions?" she said. "Abortion is as American as apple pie. I think it's one in three. But we'll go on TV and say, 'I just had my tits done or had a bikini wax,' but not had an abortion. If you could see that constituency rise up at one point in time -- but they don't, because there's this cloud."
Hoffman bluntly acknowledged that abortion involves killing an unborn child: "In the beginning [pro-lifers] were calling it a baby. We were saying it was only blood and tissue. Let's agree this is a life form, a potential life; you're terminating it. You don't have to argue that abortion stops a beating heart. It does." Nor does she insist that abortion is a minor medical procedure: "I can't say it's just like an appendectomy. It isn't. It's a very powerful and loaded decision."
Like Alexander Sanger, Hoffman sees abortion as a laudable act of self-defense against the encroaching unborn child. Referring to her own abortion, Hoffman writes in a soon-to-be-released memoir, Intimate Wars: "With my choice I was fighting for the right of all women to define abortion as an act of love: love for the family one already has, and just as important, love for oneself. I was fighting to reclaim abortion as a mother's act. It was an act of solidarity as significant as any other I had committed."
Hoffman's career as a founder and owner of an abortion clinic has been lucrative. Salon describes her as a bejeweled millionaire: "Impeccably coiffed -- signaling more Upper East Side doyenne than die-hard boomer activist -- she wears an enormous glittering ring she designed with the symbol of Choices, combining the caduceus and infinity symbols." The "Choices" to which the ring refers is the euphemistic name of the abortion clinic Hoffman runs. So her brutal honesty evidently has limits.
You admit it. "In the beginning [pro-lifers] were calling it a baby. We were saying it was only blood and tissue. Let's agree this is a life form, a potential life;" Not Potential, IT is A life, with a name and Destiny to fulfill until someone like you PRAY on the Confused and uneducated Woman who is caring it. "You don't have to argue that abortion stops a beating heart. It does." Of course it DOES you Twit. "I can't say it's just like an appendectomy. It isn't. It's a very powerful and loaded decision." Yup. And I have never met a HAPPY Female that has had an Abortion. I know a FEW, and they ALL regret it.
Now this Twit wrote a book, or something. If you want to know what it is Google her. I'm not plugging her.
This is who these people are. Remember, Obama Voted FOR Infanticide THREE times when he was in the Senate. If the Baby actually survived? Just set it aside and let it DIE. Remember that? These people have NO Morals. They have no Intelligence. They have NO Faith. They are simply glorifying each other and making themselves feel better about themselves.
Congratulations Merle Hoffman, you are the Idiot of the Week. One thing I am extremely thankful, YOU are in the Extreme Minority.
