Abortion Activism at its Best

Some pictures from a recent pro-abortion rally were brought to my attention at Catholic World News. See the full list of them here.

Although there were several pictures…many of them over the top, I noticed this one in particular.

Now I thought the shirts that said “I love pro-choice boys” were pretty sad. I mean basically, these girls were saying, “I love boys who only want me for sex.” But claiming that God is pro-choice is not only sad but sick. God is for population control. I bet he was sitting there the day after he said “be fruitful and multiply” and thought to himself, “oops, my bad. Should have thought that one through. Well we got too many babies now, just kill em before they’re born.”

That’s not quite the picture I have of God.

  1. The t-shirt said the “she” is “pro-choice.” Since many abortion fanatics have dug some old pagan goddesses out of mothballs, her deity may well cherish child sacrifice.What I find instructive is her sign, “If you can’t trust me with a choice, how can you trust me with a child?” The answer is, “Obviously we can’t, which is why we need laws against abortion.”

  2. this is one crazy post, brian. First of all, you don’t know what god would say about abortion today. The bible was written at a time when abortion was not an issue. Instead, the bible instructed men on how to beat their wives and treat their slaves. I hate to break this to you, but she did not reach down from the sky with a big quill pen and write the bible. A bunch of contradicting men wrote the bible to the best of their abilities, and even this has been misinterpreted and mistranslated.In defense, ‘God’ gave us the freedom of choice. We can even choose to do the ‘wrong’ thing. God may do with us what she pleases, but the government cannot possibly force women to carry a parasite for nine months because the bible appears to be against medical abortion. As for the t-shirt. did you actually ask the girl with the ‘offensive’ shirt what she meant by it? You cannot just assume things, Brina. I love pro-choice boys, so do you assume that I want to be used only for sex? I think that claiming God is pro-life is sick. Acts of God kill her babies all the time. So who’s ‘right’ here, brian?My picture of God may not be the same as yours, and unlike you, I do not intend on claiming my take on the great creator as the ultimate truth.

  3. Liz, Yes I do claim that my understanding of the creator is the ultimate truth. If I did not believe a view to be correct, why would I adhere to it. That seems kind of stupid. And this is exactly what is wrong with liberals like yourself. You think that because someone has convictions, they hate those with different convictions. That is incorrect. They simply disagree with others and would like to illustrate through whatever means (in my case writing) where the members of the opposing view have erred. Along those lines you say that you don’t claim that your take on the creator is the ultimate truth. Then why do you have a take on the creator at all. If you don’t think that it is any more accurate than any other view, then there is no point in having one. So, ultimately you believe in nothing.

  4. brian, as a journalist I am upset that you want to “illustrate through whatever means (in my case writing) where the members of the opposing view have erred” with no proof aside from your own belief that ‘we’ are wrong. As a ‘token liberal’ I am also offended that you assume that I “think that because someone has convictions, [I] hate those with different convictions.” You assume many things Brian, and this may be your downfall. I do have beliefs, but I RESPECT those who may not agree with me. Believe it or not, I don’t hate you; I respect you.

  5. Ok, I am going to break this post down.1) “brian, as a journalist I am upset that you want to “illustrate through whatever means (in my case writing) where the members of the opposing view have erred” with no proof aside from your own belief that ‘we’ are wrong.”- As a member of Carolina Review, I opine as well as report. And as one who opines, I must address the oppositions position and refute it. If I did not, we would not have a magazine. Secondly, I do have proof and reasons for why liberals are wrong. I have shared them on many occasions. In our little debate, I explained how it is pointless to adhere to a certain belief if you do not think that it is any more right than a different belief. As far as abortion goes, I have written at length on how, for example, 95% of abortions are solely for birth control reasons and how their is proof that life begins way before birth.2) “As a ‘token liberal’ I am also offended that you assume that I “think that because someone has convictions, [I] hate those with different convictions.” You assume many things Brian, and this may be your downfall. I do have beliefs, but I RESPECT those who may not agree with me. Believe it or not, I don’t hate you; I respect you.”-I do not assume anything. I interpret one who calls a fetus a parasite to be someone who is either trying to get a pro-lifer POed. It is not very respectful to engage someone in this manner. If you truly believe that the fetus is a parasite explain the medical and philosophical reasons for this.

  6. par·a·site (from Websters) ( P ) 1. Biology. An organism that grows, feeds, and is sheltered on or in a different organism while contributing nothing to the survival of its host. 2. 1. One who habitually takes advantage of the generosity of others without making any useful return. 2. One who lives off and flatters the rich; a sycophant. 3. A professional dinner guest, especially in ancient Greece.

  7. Ouch. Liz kinda socked it to you. Also, although life clearly begins for all of us before birth, that is an entirely empty statement. A sperm and egg are alive. As are the cells which compose a mouse embryo. It says nothing, means nothing.

  8. this sign uhhh i have one dont get pregnut duh! Murder happens everyday. Some people that decide to commit the crime don’t even know what they are doing is murder. But that’s why I am here today to tell you the truth. By the end of today you will understand that abortion is killing a human being no matter what anyone says. You will also understand the difference between pro-choice and pro-life, which I consider the good and the bad. Last but not least you will learn a different route people can take (instead of abortion)First things first. People say all the time that abortion is not killing anything or anyone, wrong! At 11 weeks an unborn baby can kick, make a fist, and usually sucks his or her thumb. Which is proven buy lifer resource network. When time for the abortion comes the baby is living, meaning a breathing heart beating human being proven by American life league. I’m a pro-life girl who believes abortion is murder, which is unfair, and not right. Pro-choice people believe that a woman has a choice between life and death. Basically she has a choice weather she wants to kill a baby or save its life. What would you rather choose?Speak about adoption experiences and different types of adoption….People ask why this topic is so important to me. It is extremely important to me. I hold it very close to my heart. The reason why is because I am one of the grateful people whose birth mom chose life. Yes, my mom had a choice between abortion or adoption and I thank God everyday she chose adoption. Adoption is when people become the legal parent of the child of another. Some look at adoption and think it’s not right, but don’t you think its right that it saves lives everyday. Yes, when I was younger I thought my birth mom didn’t want me so she gave me away but that’s not it at all. In my case she was doing me a favor. She could not raise me at the time. She wanted what was best for me. There are different types of adoption. There is something like my case or adopting less fortunate from foster care and orphanages. People can even adopt from another country. Some situations the kids have to be taken away from their birth mother and/or father and placed for adoption. Those cases the police and court are involved. Those kids are so grateful because their abused or neglected. Adoption is such a wonderful thing.

  9. For some it has nothing to do with the issue that your source [of which is adamantly partisan, claiming itself “your pro-life source”] says that there is a child growing in you with a personality, or whatever else you were trying to claim, when a mother is pregnant. Perhaps you should try looking at peer-reviewed and scholarly journals by the evil liberals also known as scientists. and perhaps I missed a comment that negates adoption as another option … that’s part of the choice of the woman who is potentially in danger of killing herself or in turn killing her child after a long road of hardships which our government doesn’t help a woman get through anyway. You have no idea what each and every individual woman’s situation is in the United States. And until you do, you have absolutely no soap box to stand on claiming you know what’s best for them, which is what you are doing in turn by stamping every act of abortion as murder. A bill to make abortion illegal, among other things is neoconservative idealism to strip away the national “god given” rights of a woman to chose. So YOU make the choice, not between good and evil, not between life and murder, and not between right and wrong. If you do that, you inevitably turn this into a small scale mirror of the civil war, when men and women alike fought for the ability to live their lives and make choices outside of the religious monarchy that they lived under. Strange how history repeats itself.
