The Abortion Business:
Abortion is a difficult, serious and personal decision for many; but for others it is a profitable business. Each year 42 million abortions occur worldwide, approximately 115,000 daily with one in every five pregnancies ending in an abortion in America. (See http://www.abort73.com) While the government should be doing more to prevent these abortions and encouraging life, Planned Parenthood enjoys the profitable billion dollar business.
Often women are forced into an abortion from a man who does not want the baby or teen aged girls, who have been statutory raped by an older boyfriend, will force her to have an abortion without the parents knowledge. (See http://www.afterabortion.org/petition/Forced_Abortions.pdf) and a 2008 ad http://www.yeson4.net/ ) A friend of mine, who does ultrasounds, recently told me of a couple who came in to find out the sex of the baby. When the couple found out “It is a Girl”, the couple left and returned approximately six months later. Again, “It is a Girl” and again the cycle repeated itself two more times until the fourth time, the couple was told “It’s a Boy”. Each time the child was aborted (three times) for being the wrong sex- a girl. This is wrong!!! Abortion should never be a means of birth control or determining the make up of your family. Often the emotional effects on the women can be mentally damaging with emotional trauma or even suicide. (See http://www.leaderu.com/orgs/tul/ pap1.html )
Another gruesome procedure is partial birth abortion, which is an abortion in the last trimester (seven to nine months) of the pregnancy, where the half-born baby is forced to keep part of its body in the birth canal, preventing it from being completely born or the procedure would be considered murder. Scissors are then stabbed in the back of the baby’s head to enlarge a rube to suck out the baby’s brains and collapse the skull. As you can imagine, this causes excruciating pain to the baby before death. (See http://www.abortionfacts.com/ literature/ literature_9313pb.asp ) Michelle Obama called the procedure “a legitimate medical procedure”. (See story by Illinois nurse Jill Stanek at http://www.wnd.com/news/article.asp? ARTICLE_ ID=51121 )
Occasionally, some babies are born alive before the abortion procedure is complete. Their live bodies were shelved in a utility room, without medical care, to die. When legislation was presented to force doctors to treat the child, then Senator Barack Obama voted four times against a bill that provided aid to the baby who survived being killed. One survivor, Gianna Jessen tells her story. (See http://www.richleonardi.blogspot.com/2008/09/born-alive-truth.html )
But why would Obama be against such a procedure? Follow the money given to Planned Parenthood. The Obama administration has given 1.5 billion to Planned Parenthood, including a 133% increase in funding for clinics in America. One billion in tax money has also been given for international abortions groups. Not surprising, all of the Planned Parenthood local action organizations and affiliates voted unanimously to recommend endorsing Obama for president and he has rewarded their endorsement. Within minutes of taking the Oath of Office, the official Whitehouse.gov website was changed to add language supporting pro-abortion policies. (See http://www.bpnews.net/bpnews.aspid=29694&ref=BPNews-RSSFeed0120 )
Planned Parenthood is an organization that profits from each abortion performed and accepted money in an undercover investigation from a man fronting as a racist donor who wanted his funds earmarked for aborting black babies. (See http://www.michellemalkin.com/… /planned-parenthoods-obscene-profits ) Planned Parenthood accepted the money. Does this mean Planned Parenthood is racist? Their founder, Margaret Sanger, has referred to blacks, immigrants, and indigents as “human weeds” and “reckless beaders”. She cautioned “We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population” but wrote that they were ” Spawning…human beings who never should have been born”. She said “the chief aim of birth control” is “more children from the fit, less from the unfit”. (See http://www.dianedew.com/sanger.htm )
The Democrats today are establishing many laws against the right to life. President Obama has appointed numerous liberals from pro-abortion organizations, such as National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL) into critical positions within the government. Obama and the Democrats are pushing through a federal bill, called the “Freedom of Choice Act” that would end parental notification or consent for abortions on minors, mandate taxpayer funding of abortions, allow abortions in military hospitals, end waiting periods before having an abortion, deny doctors the right to refuse to perform abortions, overturn many abortion clinic health regulations, and legalize partial birth abortion. (See http://www.cc.org/olcampaign/stop_foca )
On March 9, 2009, Obama also signed Executive Order 13505 to force taxpayers to fund embryonic stem cells, and removed funding for life-saving adult stem cells. (See http://creation.com/president-obama-okays- funding-embryonic-stem-cell-research-but-removes-adult-ster ) Therefore the government would fund the growing of embryonic stem cells of a human fetus up to eight weeks and abort it to use the stem cells for scientific purposes. Even though science have discovered in 2007 that adult stem cells were just as effective (See http://www.mercatornet.com/article/view/adult_stem_ce )
It is no wonder Obama has appointed John Holdren as the Science Czar. He has advocated the formation of a “planetary regime” that would use a “global police force” to enforce totalitarian measures of population control, including forced abortions, mass sterilization programs conducted via the food and water supply. According to Front Page Magazine and other sources, Holdren considers overpopulation as mankind’s greatest threat and he and his co-authors have advocated some of the following proposals in his book, called Ecoscience.
1. Forcibly and unknowingly sterilizing the entire population by adding infertility drugs to the nation’s water and food supply.
2. Legalizing “compulsory abortions,” i.e. forced abortions carried out against the will of the pregnant women, as is common place in Communist China where women who have already had one child and refuse to abort the second are kidnapped off the street by the authorities before a procedure is carried out to forcibly abort the baby.
3. Babies who are born out of wedlock or to teenage mothers to be forcibly taken away from their mother by the government and put up for adoption. Another proposed measure would force single mothers to demonstrate to the government that they can care for the child, effectively introducing licensing to have children.
4. Implementing a system of “involuntary birth control,” where both men and women would be mandated to have an infertility device implanted into their body at puberty and only have it removed temporarily if they received permission from the government to have a baby.
5. Permanently sterilizing people who the authorities deem have already had too many children or who have contributed to “general social deterioration”.
6. Formally passing a law that criminalizes having more than two children, similar to the one child policy in Communist China. (See http://www.informationliberation.com/?id=26965 and http://www.mantecabulletin.com/news/article/7433/)
Our Declaration of Independence reads “We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness”. While our Declaration of Independence refers to rights and life, the Democrats have clearly become the party of Death.
