Support Pro-Life on Oklahoma Rose Day (letter to the editor)

Quote
At age 15, Lila Rose founded LIVE ACTION, a pro-life nonprofit organization that specializes in investigative journalism, media and youth education. LIVE  ACTION  works to expose abuses in the abortion industry and advocate for human rights for the pre-born. Rose currently serves as president of this organization, having led numerous undercover investigations exposing corruption and illegal activity at Planned Parenthood, the nation's biggest abortion chain. Her work has documented rampant sexual abuse cover-up, racism as in discrimination toward African-American babies, dispensing inaccurate medical misinformation, assistance to sex traffickers, and false statements made by PP officials.

I quoted the middle paragraph because it makes the agenda of this organization much clearer.  Like most "pro-life" groups, it's really only focused on stopping abortions, and "exposing" so-called abuses of organizations like Planned Parenthood.  What they fail to mention is that it was far worse when abortion was illegal.

"Over 50 million unborn babies have gone into eternity since Roe vs. Wade legitimized abortion."

And over those 40 years, approximately 600 million people have died of starvation, at a rate of about 15 million per year.  http://www.statisticbrain.com/world-hunger-statistics/

Want to keep it closer to home?  Here in the US, approximately a half a million children are currently homeless.  http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/archives/20-facts-about-child-hunger-and-child-poverty-that-will-break-your-heart 

As we push the limits of our global resources, with huge percentages of humanity dying of starvation, contaminated water, and other struggles over minerals and other commodities, the idea that we need to add to our world population by insisting that unwanted children be born is absurd.

I agree that life is precious.  I believe that every precious human being deserves food, shelter, water, a home, an education.  And every child born deserves parent(s) and a community that will love and cherish and nurture the child.  And feed the child.  And educate the child.  And protect the child.  And find access to medical care for the child.  And not abuse or neglect the child. 

Forcing childbirth a woman who does not have the desire, capacity or resources to parent is detrimental to the woman, to the unwanted child, and in many cases, to the community. 

And you, Ms. Lila Rose?  What do you do to improve the quality of life for those children that have already been born?

Why is it, I wonder, that some insist on excising a specific aspect of life and demand that all decisions be made in relation to that isolated factor, rather than keeping the situation in context? A pregnant woman is pregnant within a setting that is specific to her situation, and the factors involved are not always wonderful and exciting and full of happy anticipation. When they are not, it helps to have choices to make rather than legislation to comply with. Especially when said legislation is unbearably restrictive.

If we lived in a world with only one kind of soup, one color shirt, one size of car, one shape of house, one television station and one television show, and you wanted to say that there was only one choice when a woman is pregnant, then at least there would be some consistency in the stance. But when the people who insist that they can't afford more taxes are among those that demand every child be born, regardless of the affordability, regardless of the health of the mother, regardless of the social circumstances, regardless of the rape or incest, then I need to know why their selfishness is more important than the ability of a pregnant woman to make an important and informed choice.

Especially if, in the meantime, that person is also going to insist that affordable, nationalized health care is a commie plot. Do they not realize how many more pregnancies would be carried to term if the medical part was affordable?

People unclear on any concept shouldn't be the ones insisting that they are the most qualified to decide for others. Especially when they simultaneously insist that nobody can tell them what to do.

It's not so much about killing unborn cell clusters, it's about making sure that everyone has sex in the eyes of god, while married in the eyes of god, and while committed to each other until they reach heaven.  Bwa ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha

Yeah, these pro life nutjobs want everyone to be a good little bitch for their god.  That's all it is.

Bastards.

And don't forget that you are not suppose to enjoy sex.  Just get it over with and reproduce.
Yo, put that in your pipe and smoke it.  Quit ragging on my Lord.

When they are not, it helps to have choices to make rather than legislation to comply with. Especially when said legislation is unbearably restrictive.

The motivations of many pro-lifers seem to boil down to controlling adult women's bodies. Reducing them to baby-bearing non-persons, whose needs and wants are secondary to those of the fetus.

If it was really about the children and sanctity of family, then pro-lifers would be more consistent in making sure mothers (married or not, single or not) have proper support before and following delivery. Prenatal health, hospital care, childcare education, daycare for working parents... the list goes on and on.

Yet many of them find it more convenient to resort to legislation mandating, for instance, invasive ultrasounds, as discussed in this thread from last year:http://whywontgodhealamputees.com/forums/index.php/topic,21539.0.html
