It’s not “pro-choice”, it’s pro-ABORTION, and that means pro-death.

My take on the abortion issue starts with this.  Anyone who calls themselves “pro-choice” or who claims to be in favor of “women’s reproductive rights” has to answer just one question for me: do you believe there should be more abortions performed in the world, or fewer?  If you don’t answer the latter, then you are in favor of death.

Pro-abortion advocates always claim to support a “woman’s right to choose.”  Except that to them, the choice is always for abortion, never for keeping the baby.  I don’t care how often the claim is made that abortion must remain available in case of rape or incest.   With over a million abortions performed a year in the U.S., most of these abortions are performed for the convenience of the mother.  It is simply inconvenient for them to have a child come into their lives, even if briefly before being given up for adoption.

At some point, we must ask pro-abortion advocates one further question: at what point will even you draw the line and say that certain conduct is beyond the bounds of humanity?  When a child survives an abortion which was done because the baby had an easily correctable cleft palate, then survives the abortion and is left to die, what do you say to that?

Can human beings at least agree that this is beyond the pale?  This is eugenics, plain and simple, and it is here now.

Here’s the lasted Commie Tunes from Commie Blaster:

George Soros seems to pull the strings of the Obama administration…this postulates that he controls much of our information technology, as well, particularly Google (no surprise).   Apple and Microsoft apparently have similar political leanings, and are directly influenced by Soros’ “open society” (i.e., socialist) vision for the world.  Pay particular attention to part where Bill Gates is discussing ways in which to reduce the world population (this is particularly creepy): vaccines, health care, and reproductive health services (code words for abortion).  The abortion part, I get.  No babies = fewer people, if that is your objective.  But vaccines and health care are supposed to improve life expectancy, so WTF does he mean by that statement?  It sounds kinda sinister.

Discuss amongst yourselves.

This ain’t your Granny’s Girl Scouts.

Elphaba & Wiccapundit

Only a lefty-liberal would think that this is appropriate:

The sex guide explains, “…there are lots of different ways to have sex and lots of different types of sex.  …some people like to have aggressive sex, while others like to have soft sex and slow sex with their partners.  There is no right or wrong way to have sex.  Just have fun, explore, and be yourself!”

This is advice printed in a brochure for young people who are HIV-positive, produced by Planned Parenthood, called “Healthy, Happy and Hot.” The brochure was distributed at panel for adolescent girls sponsored by Girl Scouts of the USA at the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women.  Just unbelievable.  When Elphaba was a Girl Scout, the only things that they taught her to rub together were two sticks to build a campfire!

This is part and parcel of the Left’s continuing efforts at hyper-sexualizing young girls in order to advance the agenda of relaxed sexual mores.  By doing so, a self-sustaining demand for abortion necessarily follows.  This kind of activity goes far beyond the providing of health information and veers radically into the territory of advocacy of sexual activity by children.  What do Leftists have to gain by this?  Besides creating more “business” for the for-profit Planned Parenthood, by eating away at the moral fabric of society, the Left creates a base of voters with disdain for responsibility, and thus a strong resistance to conservative – and hence, Republican – values.  It’s “cool” to be “Healthy, Happy and Hot,” and totally “uncool” to be celibate and responsible as a teenager or even pre-teen:

At a Girl Scout conference in 2004, co-sponsored by Planned Parenthood, the Girl Scouts handed out a brochure to 700 grade-school girls with the title “It’s Perfectly Normal,” a guide that celebrated masturbation and that featured explicit drawings of couples having sex and a boy putting on a condom. It also listed, no surprise here, the top ten reasons for having an abortion.

Concerned parents would be wise to vet the material their daughters are exposed to, and not assume that an organization as seemingly innocent as the Girl Scouts is, in fact, that.

Wiccan Imbalance (We Make Stupak Look Good)

Let’s face it, I’m an a**hole. Back in the day when I was a “sold-out, the whole route”, Bible-bangin’, both barrels blazin’, born again Christian, I had a real love for eschatology. But more importantly, I absolutely loved apologetics. For those not in the know, this is essentially the field of study that seeks to rationally and historically support the validity and truth claims of the Bible, and to a degree, the Christian perspective as a whole. Yeah, I was an ardent self-styled defender of the faith. Even now, although the religion and views may have changed, I remain very much the same.

But I have always had a knack of being especially critical of the group I belonged to first and foremost. It has always occurred to me that in terms of truth and ethics, we must always strive to hold ourselves to the highest standards if we are to be worthy of claiming our religious system, and more importantly, if we are to be ambassadors of it. In short, I’ve simply always felt that we must be not only able but eager to call BS in our own house, particularly before we consider any others. This is likely one of many reasons why I prefer to navigate the outer perimeter of the Wiccan community, because most within it tend to have strong reflexive reactions to any critical assessment of what we really are, rather than what we tell others and ourselves we are.

Wiccans have a lot of self-descriptors, most of them cribbed from a stack of neo-pagan books by modern day hippies and pseudo-intellectuals who seem to have opted out in getting a clue throughout life. Favorites tend to shift from time to time, with the currents of fashion occasionally sweeping us into new levels of understanding and communal “self-awareness.” You know, all that clap-trap. But as an example of how we fancy ourselves, let’s consider a few of these. Let’s see…we Wiccans are: nature-reverencing, goddess-worshiping, life-affirming, ecologically aware, tolerance-promoting, non-judgmental, and balanced. For any who’ve ever known a Wiccan or neo-pagan, you’ll agree that the last thing we are is balanced. We might hold it as an ideal, meaning a goal for which we strive (and we should), but in all honesty, we don’t really take it all that seriously (which is sad). But aside of the balance issue, another item from that list is the notion of being a “life-affirming” religion. I’ve always found that this is a somewhat preposterous description for this group claiming it, for one glaring and simple reason: Wiccans are almost exclusively sold out to the radical political left, and absorb without question virtually each and every one if its dogmas, including an absolute endorsement of the pro-abortion agenda.

Obamacare and Eugenics

Fetus at 5 months of gestation

I have been following the abortion subsidy debate with regards to Obamacare with great interest.  I think that many Democrats are showing their true colors in the sense that “pro-choice” for them really means pro-abortion, and this raises some major ethical concerns.  James Taranto in his WSJ’s Best of the Web column, discusses this subject so well that I am excerpting it here, as I don’t think I can articulate it any better than he does:

National Review’s Bob Costa catches up with Rep. Bart Stupak, the Michigan Democrat who, although not opposed to ObamaCare, has said he and a dozen or so like-minded colleagues will vote “no” if it includes subsidies for abortion:

Stupak notes that his negotiations with House Democratic leaders in recent days have been revealing. “I really believe that the Democratic leadership is simply unwilling to change its stance,” he says. “Their position says that women, especially those without means available, should have their abortions covered.” The arguments they have made to him in recent deliberations, he adds, “are a pretty sad commentary on the state of the Democratic party.

“What are Democratic leaders saying? “If you pass the Stupak amendment, more children will be born, and therefore it will cost us millions more. That’s one of the arguments I’ve been hearing,” Stupak says. “Money is their hang-up. Is this how we now value life in America? If money is the issue–come on, we can find room in the budget. This is life we’re talking about.”

Stupak frames his argument too narrowly. Forget about “life” for a while–the Democratic leaders’ position ought to be equally shocking to those on the pro-choice side of the abortion debate.

What Stupak is hearing from his colleagues is not the pro-choice argument that the government should permit abortion as a matter of individual liberty. Rather, they claim that the government should encourage abortion as a social expedient–a cost-cutting measure. (more…)
