‘Something is deeply wrong’: Kirsten Powers slams ‘hero worship’ of Wendy Davis

Fox News contributor Kirsten Powers sees a massive rip in the moral fabric of America and is defending herself from backlash on Twitter after writing this tweet:

While some expressed support, Powers is still receiving and responding to criticism, some of it facepalm-inducing:

Does one need medical school training in order to have a valid view of what’s moral? Apparently:

        No, we actually go after our own with equal veracity. We’re at least intellectually honest with our convictions. Libs, notsomuch. That’s why it’s so much fun watching the left get their panties all in a wad when one of their own step out of line.

    Kristen still is pro-choose but she might have started to realized that the choice ends at a time much sooner then birth thanks to Gosnell.

        nothing wrong with that haha she will soon be one of us haha

    • Stone Bryson

      Actually, for as long as I have been watching Kirsten Powers she has always been a pro-life liberal. I could be wrong, but I believe she has written several past articles – well before Gosnell – condemning the practice.

      • TJ

        Looking at her old tweets from Nov 12′ pro-life is the only box she would check not to be a liberal. Something like a 98% liberal and the pro-life box get squished out for the most part. But Gosnell and this 20 week ban opposition may have give one to rethink the rest.

        • Stone Bryson

          Nah, I doubt it with Ms. Powers – she is a traditional liberal (not sure I can put her in the progressive category, though she is treading it), and I cannot see her changing her views on anything else. Abortion, and the other hand, has always been a moral issue for her, which is why she is such a passionate voice against it.

  • Momo

    Kirsten Powers is able to acknowledge that some people’s blind allegiance to the act of abortion at any time for any reason is not only sickening, but it is dangerous.

    These people who glorify the act of abortion on a 20 week old baby should be required to view photographs and detailed explanations of this brutal procedure.

    Why didn’t the “heroic” Wendy Davis spend some time relating stories about the abortions of 20+ week old babies when she took her oh, so principled stand in the Texas Capital the other day?

    She is a ghoul and a most dangerous kind of villain.

    Kirsten Powers is a reasonable and fair minded person. God bless her.

  • John

    As someone else mentioned, it’s always struck me as ironic that those who want to determine who should or shouldn’t be allowed to be born all seem to have the benefit of having been born. THEIR mother chose LIFE! Giving them the life to spill their drivel all over the place.

    And it’s always the same people that protest outside of prisons to keep convicted murderers, that have nothing to contribute to society, alive. Because life is sacred and government shouldn’t be in the business of killing people.

    • Bathing Suit Area

      “THEIR mother chose LIFE! ”

      CHOSE. Important word, that.

  • http://amandakmelson.wordpress.com/ GreenEyedGal

    If you had told me a year ago I’d be agreeing with anything Kirsten Powers said, let alone retweeting her in agreement, I would have called you crazy. She’s changed a lot over the last year though. It’s good to see. She still has a long way to go, but I’m cheering for her.

    • MarcusFenix

      One step at a time, right? :)

      • http://amandakmelson.wordpress.com/ GreenEyedGal

        That’s how you get from point A to point B: one step at a time.

          Agreed :) Would be nice to skip a step or 2 sometimes, but then that takes away from the journey.

            pssst, there are a few of us hard core conservative libertarians who in our younger days were…..Democrats. Took me over 30 years to get here.

    • Love of Country

      IMHO, she’s actually been bucking the system for the last ten years. Case in point … Alan never knew exactly what to expect from her back when she frequently guested on Hannity and Colmes because she so frequently told the truth instead of just propping up all of Alan’s lies and willful misrepresentations. Good times.

      It’s been my observation that Kirsten has been “extra honest” ever since she looked and felt like such a fool during and after challenging Megyn Kelly over the Black Panthers voter-intimidation scandal some 3 years ago on Fox.
      http://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=megyn+kelley+kirsten+powers+new+black+panthers&view=detail&mid=8D2CBA8F54F3235E1F5D8D2CBA8F54F3235E1F5D&first=0&FORM=NVPFVR&qpvt=megyn+kelley+kirsten+powers+new+black+panthers

      But more to your specific point, it was perhaps during the last twelve months that she’s received so much hate mail from her own side just for telling the truth on a variety of subjects/scandals that’s she’s actually grown more comfortable calling them all out rather than shamefully kowtowing and being a shameful, submissive little liar like all the other liberal talking heads on TV barring half-a-dozen standouts such as Doug Schoen, Pat Caddell and Peter Johnson Jr.

      • John W.

        I think you’re exactly right about Kirsten’s turning point. For quite a while, I regarded here as just another liberal who dutifully spewed the WH talking points during her interviews. A couple of years ago, I started referring to her as “the occasionally sensible Kirsten Powers”. Now, I find myself looking forward to her FNC appearances.

      • http://amandakmelson.wordpress.com/ GreenEyedGal

        Wowza! I had never seen that clip with Megyn and Kirsten before. I don’t always agree with Megyn, but I sure do love her. She’s just feisty as all get out!

        My few experiences with Kirsten prior to this evolution I’ve been witnessing over the last year have been ones where she seems like every other dem I’ve ever seen – willing to twist themselves inside out and upside down to spin the facts and make them fit the narrative they’re pushing. I never watched Hannity and Colmes for two reasons: Colmes, of course, and Hannity! I did see Powers in something last year and she did what all the liberals do and I remember commenting on a site that in order to believe as she does, she had to be evil or stupid and I didn’t think she was evil. I really think she’s come a long way. Having said that, she’s on Bret Baier’s show from time to time and every once in awhile, she reverts back to her old ways and I just shake my head, but I have great hopes for her. I really think she’s changing. I think my initial analysis of her was incorrect. She’s neither evil nor stupid. Perhaps she was blind, but now she’s beginning to see.

          Our little Kirsten is growing up….

  • trixiewoobeans

    I wonder how many Pro-Choicer’s had parents, or grandparents, who called returning Vietnam vets “baby killers?”

    • ObamaFail

      That’s a good point. Pro-baby killing libs hate being called baby killers. But they didn’t mind calling our returning troops that. And the same people who advocate abortion, are the same people who think executing killers is wrong. And they’ll even say, “all life is sacred” when speaking against the death penalty.

      • trixiewoobeans

        It’s also interesting to note how many vegetarians and vegans, who can’t stand to eat or use an animal or it’s products, and animal-rights supporters, are TOTALLY cool with and loudly support human abortion. I have no problem with those people, I’m an animal lover and Rescue supporter myself, but the disconnect and hypocrisy is mind-boggling!

        • Bathing Suit Area

          Why do people keep bringing this up? Even the most hardcore animal rights nuts don’t think you should have to let any creatures live inside your torso.

          • trixiewoobeans

            Not a “creature.” That’s sick…you’re seriously messed up…but then, look at your summer job. Trolling Con. sites and arguing for the “right” to kill. Do you step on baby chicks in your free time?

          • Bathing Suit Area

            Why would I do that?

  • Lady 12

    Here’s the trick: ask any of these people if they would be okay if they suddenly discovered their mother tried to abort them.

    • Bathing Suit Area

      The real trick is how would you feel if your parents had never had sex? You wouldn’t exist! It’s like you would have been murdered. Quick, outlaw abstinence!

    • Bathing Suit Area

      If our parents were pro choice, it means we know that our mothers wanted us. You’ll never know if you’re mother wanted to have you, or if she was forced into it against her will.

  • MarcusFenix

    Why is it that even supposedly educated liberals act like they’re dumber than an empty lunchbox? 5 month fetus vs baby? *facepalm* It’s kicking and moving, but WHAT COULD IT BEEEEEE?

    Liberal ideology: If I can’t disprove your argument, you should shut up because you’re a poopy face and I don’t like what you’re saying.

    Also….one of the posters, Auragasmic, has this on her Twitter feed:

    “Yes, and again care = SOCIAL DEPENDENCE. An infant doesn’t have a right to my blood, marrow or kidney”

    Of course…she forgets a few things, such as her right to be responsible for her own actions. Or that pesky part where she didn’t ask for those things from her own mother before taking them. I wonder when this mental midget is going to give all of that back to her mom and apologize for taking it without her permission in the first place?

    • dbry258

      the fetus vs baby argument is a bit more insidious…a baby is a person, a human; in their view a fetus is not. The de-huminzation of the unborn is the cornerstone of the pro-abortion crowd. As long as the unborn child is not considered human, then anything they do is allowed. In their ideology this de-humanized unborn child, now bereft of humanity and all that goes with it, has no more right to existence than any other tissue mass in the body. I can think of some others who de-humanized a class a people before exterminating them…

      • Adela Wagner

        Too bad they can’t go in for a 20+ week abortion and as the “fetus’ is half-way out, be handed the “snippers” to perform a Gosnell on the back of the babies neck. Wonder what they would call it then. (sorry, I know this is over the top, but so are they)

      To Auragasmi, (and the “Doctors” who compared babies to tapeworms and colonoscopies) a vagina is a magical passage which inexplicably bestows life upon all who exit it, but not so much as a nanosecond before. Because, SCIENCE!

      • Bathing Suit Area

        Uh, no. They just happen to remember that a vagina is part of a person, and that person has final say on who goes through it.

        • AdoEdem

          I’m sure that made perfect sense in your head.

          On the other hand…if my suspicions are correct, that’s some amazing parody trolling. You didn’t just smack into Poe’s Law, you drove a Mac truck into it.

          • Bathing Suit Area

            What part of my comment didn’t you understand?

          • AdoEdem

            Whoops, you did misstep a little there. In order to truly get into the moonbat mental mire, you have to make a bigger production about looking down your nose at people, even if they’re better educated/more intelligent/write better than the supposed leftist would be. Appeals from education can be a little tricky, so I can’t completely recommend using them. It’s a fine line between accurately mimicking leftist inferiority complexes and making up something a little too perfect, like a Sociology major at San Jose State.

            When you make an apples and oranges comparisons/non sequitors/red herrings, (that was very good, BTW) when the response asks what did it have to do with what they were commenting on, the most effective way to portray a moonbat is to make a comment that essentially translates to “Haha! I’m so brilliant that you couldn’t follow my brilliant logic even though it had next to nothing to do what what you were saying!” The evasion of the actual content was excellent, but throw in another false comparison fallacy just for a little extra gilding the lily.

            And when in doubt, use the standard ad hominem fallacy. Leftists never get tired of that one. Keep in mind, though, that leftist canards shift constantly. What bumper sticker mantras are fashionable right now could get bumped down the hierarchy as a group with higher oppression street cred moves up.

            Hope that helps! 😀

          • Bathing Suit Area

            I was honestly just asking if I could clarify anything for you.

      “give all of that back to her mom and apologize for taking it without her permission in the first place?”

      Some women do have babies voluntarily, you know.

      • MarcusFenix

        And you’re right. But the twitter account I was commenting on was making the case that the baby had no right to her body. Voluntary or not, she still didn’t ask permission, and as adamant as she is about the subject, you’d think she’d recompense her mother in some way.

        Having a child, almost exclusively, is a voluntary procedure anyway. Outside of some random example of being forced to have a child, she’s basically making the argument that she’s allowing the child to be a parasite. Seems some gratitude would be in order, right? But the twitter idiot didn’t *ask* for those things, as she’s loudly stating when it comes to pregnancy. Allowed or not, there was clearly no permission and according to her, that’s *wrong*.

        Seems, however, she has the very interesting perspective of not being aborted and shoved into a medical disposal bag from which to deliver us her wellspring of selective breeding.

  • LinTaylor

    Apparently, in the mind of Leah Torres, MD (and many other liberals), an unborn baby is analogous to fecal matter.

  • cfc1905

    The death of the GOP will be traced back to our inability to set the debate. Instead of the question being a woman’s right to choose being limited to X weeks , why not try a different approach. Have liberal women explain how long after a child is born should it be the woman’s “right” to abort the baby’s life, since it clearly cannot survive on it’s own. If they want to allow the Gosnell’s of the world to carry on, shove it right down their throats. Make them answer if they do or don’t support eugenics. You believe in a woman’s “right” to choose? For how long into the child’s life, exactly? Life of the mother in danger you say, I say how many woman with PPD kill themselves? Why do liberals care so little for the “rights” of those women? Liberal policies are evil at their core, it’s time we started forcing them to answer the tough questions…

    • Ark

      Well said.

    • MarcusFenix

      I think the answer to your questions lies at the heart of liberalism…the idea that whatever going on right this second is all that matters, and that doing what you want is paramount to structure or decency. Anything that happened before now doesn’t matter, and anything that will happen just needs to be about them feeling good, not having to deal with consequences of negative or risky behavior, and about whatever craptastic move they’re making to ensure they can do it, guilt free.

      • mickeyco

        Right, Marcus. Libs have no real belief in absolute true/ false and good/evil. It’s only what feels good or what feels right or what is more expedient. That’s why a conservative really can’t argue abortion with a lib. To us, it’s morally impossible to murder an innocent. To a lib, if it’s in the way, get rid of it.

      • cfc1905

        You’re right, of course, but I think the divide between liberal and conservative may stem from exactly what you point out: liberals want instant gratification with zero consequences. Their policies attempt to remove, as much as possible, consequences for their bad behavior.

        • Bathing Suit Area

          If the consequences are removed, why is the behavior still bad?

    • LinTaylor

      While you’re dead-on here, there’s a simple problem (beyond what Marcus said): liberals have become consummate champions in the fields of evading, deflecting, and redirecting critical questions. Even if you found a Republican with the backbone to confront them as you suggested, said Democrat would pull off their debate Judo and manage to get things right back to where they started, painting the GOP as if they despise women.

      • Adela Wagner

        And yet, their Ayers inspired Common Core Curriculum is based on “Critical Thinking”, demanding you declare evidence for any answer you present.
        I’m still not sure what that means, but I am more into analytical thinking, creativity and theory based on fact.

        Seems to me you are nail heading it. When faced with someone who does not go along with their canned response, they avoid the continuous path, and veer off, coming back from behind and attack with anti-GOP/Teaparty Conservative BS finger pointing….oh, and RACIST! They loves that one.

        • AdoEdem

          Actually, at this point of time “critical thinking” is just a cute little catchphrase for them to pretend regurgitating talking points is the same as seriously examining evidence and drawing a conclusion.

      really, why can’t it just be “don’t like abortion? don’t get one!” because really it’s simple as that, people shouldn’t limit a womens options in an unwanted pregnancy simply because of /their beliefs/ (believe it or not people actually do have different beliefs!!)
      And really, men shouldn’t have a say on whether abortion should be legal or illegal and such because they can’t get pregnant.

      • Stephen L. Hall

        So, I take it you agree with me that men should be allowed to deny/abort their financial obligations, as women shouldn’t have a say on whether child support should be legal or illegal and such because it’s not their money.

        As for your assertion that a fetus can’t think, by analogy, every liberal must still be a fetus as they can’t think either. Nor do they seem to understand the process of illustrating bad logic by analogy.

      • Netmilsmom

        A 12 week old Pre-born baby has Rapid Eye Movement, therefore he/she dreams. They think. I don’t think they reason, but it’s silly to believe that a working brain at 19 weeks sits there yet magically at 20 weeks (if it doesn’t get in the way of a woman’s “reproductive health”) suddenly turns on and a human baby appears.
        When do you thing a fetus begins to “think” Ouffi?

      • Adela Wagner

        I am pro-choice. However, I do draw a line where a fetus is coming into it’s own as far as surviving on it’s own. I know women who have given birth to babies that were carried for 6 months. And turned out with a few problems but grew into strong children.

        And,because of medical advancements, more and more premature babies live long healthy lives, being born earlier and earlier.

        Here is a story of a baby born at 21 weeks gestation. http://tinyurl.com/3fyluuz
        And although men cannot become pregnant, they are still fathers. I have known men that loved their children more than anything. So how can anyone say a father cannot weigh in.

        And just this question alone, shows that pregnancy affects more than just the woman, and it should not be something that happens all willy nilly, nor something that should be taken lightly. It is a shame that this is being made into something else that can just be part of the “throw away” attitude that so many are slipping into.
        If we all looked at it as no big deal, no restrictions at all, would you be okay with a woman going into full labor at 9 months and right on the table saying “oh I had a big fight with my boyfriend yesterday and I’ll show that SOB, just go ahead and kill it” or deciding partying (ala Casey Anthony) is way more important right now,and my friends are going on Spring Break so I don’t wanna stay home, just kill this 8 month “fetus”….

        And now with the morning after pill being so available, I suspect this will become a moot point as all these SO responsible, SO educated, SO much Smarter than Conservatives, So well informed liberal women will be able to take care of their own business and the taxpayers won’t be STUCK with yet something ELSE we have to provide….subsidized abortions…amiright? yeah riiiight.

        I swear, I see people get way more wadded up over a litter of puppies than a baby. And we are a “civilized” society?

        And really, men shouldn’t have a say on whether abortion should be legal or illegal and such because they can’t get pregnant.

    Does Dr. Torres hold “lawmakers” trying to regulate firearms to the same standards? I’ll bet not.

    I’m totally pro-life, but if one must have an abortion, I can’t for the life of me see why you’d wait to 20 weeks, when it’s more difficult for the mother. Also, have any of you seen the photos/ posts on FB of the 19 week old non-viable infant? Tell me that wasn’t a child.

    I am pro-choice, but TWENTY WEEKS?? Wow. The thought is still making me squirm. Wendy is nothing but a bandwagon wannabe-heroine — she is pandering and it’s hilariously obvious to anyone willing to see it.

  • Damien Johnson

    Liberal logic;

    It’s ok to use one person, Adam Lanza to demonize all gun owners. More gun restrictions will prevent Adam Lanzas. You do not have the right to a “high-powered rifle.” Despite there are no limitations on the type of gun in the 2nd Amendment.


    It’s not ok to use Kermit Gosnell to demonize all abortionists because he’s just one person. More abortion restrictions will create more Gosnells by turning more of the currently legal abortionists into Gosnells, because the only way you can create more Gosnells by adding more restrictions is if they are the currently legal abortionists who will be affected by new restrictions. Abortion on demand, at any time, for any reason, is a right. Despite that it is nowhere in the Constitution.

      I read a pundit (can’t remember who) who compared the leftist world view to that of a toddler. They don’t want rights per se; they want the “right” to say bad words and put anything in their mouths. Examining the Constitution, it outlines what the Founders recognized as natural rights granted to us by our Creator, and from there limited the government’s scope of what it was permitted to do for the sake of the welfare of individual citizens.

      But to a leftist, all that doesn’t matter. They have “rights” to healthcare, food, iPhones, consequence-free behavior, (usually drugs and sex) and limiting other people’s speech rights when they don’t like that speech.

      That abortion is a sacrament to the narcissistic death cult of leftism pretty much says all you need to know. Dress it up in “women’s rights” sloganeering, conveniently forget that there is no such thing as 100% bodily autonomy for *anyone*, and hide what it really is: a vehicle of convenience at the price of a human life. (The narcissism really shines through in the insistence that life doesn’t begin until a child passes through the magical vagina. My my, how very convenient)

    So why do these people never talk about women who were psychologically and physically adversely affected by abortions if they’re so-called “women’s rights?” Could it be because they themselves never had an abortion?

    Liberals have no moral conscious, no respect for human life, thus no shame.. because they care only about control. Control over people, environment, property, over life itself, which is a fascist statist mentality.

    What they want, believe, and think should be allowed to live, or not live, is predicated according to what their current ideological political agenda tells them at the moment- not what humanity says is right, ie; Moral Consciousness. Which is also why they must destroy religion- specifically Christianity, that which is the entity that cradles, nurtures, embodies, and expands the righteousness and truth of goodness, morality, and humanity.

    This is liberals mission- to deny and destroy morality, the value of human life, whether in a hospital, a court room, or in a legislative law making, let alone in a lynch mob setting.. however it can be exploited and expounded. For if they do not, and cannot, to them, they lose their self-appointed power and control over human life in society, especially in govt authority. This is what Obamacare / Govt Mandated Socialized Medicine is all about govt power and control over human life- human freedom and liberty.

    They like to pretend they have some moral high ground, but it is just myopic rhetoric, false justification used to validate their actions and position.

    “Not old white man governing their bodies.
    I’m not an ‘old white man’. I am an adult female. I ALWAYS knew
    what to do when I didn’t want to have any more children than the 3 I had. It’s called personal responsibility, aka birth control. The straw man argument to ‘Let women choose their own path in life’ ignores the murdered unborn women who NEVER have a choice. Keep your legs crossed if you’re too stupid/lazy/irresponsible to take advantage of We, the People, for your FREE birth control.

    • mickeyco

      Amazing concept: personal responsibility. No one on the left has ever heard of it. Something I’ve never understood: why do the fathers of these babies have no say? Just because the woman says it’s her body- which of course, it isn’t?

    Once God was removed, rejected from their lives, the mother of all major disconnections moved in. Where there were once answers, although not the ones some people liked, now there is made up stuff. Made up by themselves! There is no higher authority in their lives to be considered. Things are whatever the rainbows and unicorns people want them to be. It is truly something to behold. Not an ounce of logic or reason exists in their brain. It is, however, great fun to poke them with a stick every now and again.

    I did a little digging (OK, so procrastinating on my manuscript) and I found out a little more about our “good doctor”.

    My own personal experiences with some very stupid doctors aside, (I used to be a surgical nurse; you should have heard some of the scathing insults some of the surgeons had for outpatient clinical “doctors”. Sending sharps to CMS? Really?) it would seem that the certifiably psychopathic can obtain M.D.s. “Saving a life” doesn’t mean actually saving a, yannow, life, it means saving a sex life. Who knew?

    Also, her undergraduate was apparently a BA in Spanish at the University of Michigan. ¡Aiaiai! I wonder if she became a racist committed to systematically killing off women of color during her undergraduate studies? Dirty Mexicans! ¡Callate tu pinche boca!

      It’s actually the pregnancy that’s aborted, please try to be more precise in your terminology.

      • Rena

        So what exactly is being aborted during the “pregnancy”? Air, water, dirt, a tumor, a black hole or void in the woman’s uterus.. perhaps to you its some alien life form… oh wait you probably don’t think its living so there is no life… right?

        A human fetus (and all species for that matter) has its DNA coded as soon as it is conceived. This “pregnancy” as you call it, has its brain, spinal cord, lungs starting to form by 5 weeks, just when a woman learns she is pregnant, and by six weeks its heart begins to beat. I don’t know about you but this seems to be a living being, as something that is not living can’t change, grow, its cells can’t multiply and so forth. So this “pregnancy” sure seems to be more than just air, water, dirt or dark void….

        Like Ive said in other posts, what one doctor will do everything in his power to save at 23 weeks and some even earlier, even give pain medications to, an abortionist will will slice and burn with chemicals. If our medical doctors and scientists can’t agree when it is a child then we shouldn’t kill it, because we are still discovering more and more about our selves with better and better equipment.

        • Bathing Suit Area

          The pregnancy is what’s being aborted. It’s not my fault that you don’t know what words mean.

          • Rena

            Ok so the “pregnancy is being ended by aborting the fetus… is it my fault that you lack the intelligence to know the difference? You have to end something during that abortion, which is you are ending the life of the unborn baby. Don’t try to mix words hun… you are only making yourself look very retarded.

          • Bathing Suit Area

            No. Aborting the pregnancy is ending the pregnancy. Learn what words mean before you use them.

          • Rena

            And what is the pregnancy? What does it mean to be pregnant in this issue? Is it some sort of void in the uterus? Is it fluid? Perhaps Gases and dirt? What exactly is this pregnancy? Seriously you are looking like quite the fool here. What happens when you abort the said “pregnancy”? You end the life of the unborn child…. Air is not released from this this abortion of the pregnancy but the mangled and destroyed lifeless body of the unborn child….

            I am through debating this topic with you about the meaning of “pregnancy” as you obviously are just a troll looking to rile people up or just aren’t coherent enough to comprehend what a pregnancy is in the human woman and to continue to discuss this with you is utterly useless and a waste of time… Good day to you.

          • Bathing Suit Area

            Pregnancy is a process. To abort means to halt and cancel that process.

          • Rena

            In this discussion what is this pregnancy related to? The process of what is going on during this pregnancy? Seriously you can keep trying to play games with words but you are on a losing battle. Being vague about this does nothing for your argument and makes it look like you aren’t very bright. So when you can come up with a better argument on this we’ll continue if not then the discussion ends here… Good night and God Bless :)

Good on her and shame on those who bash her simply because she goes against the grain of extremism. I disagree with some of what she says and believes but she provides a measured voice that has allowed me to see things in a different light on multiple occasions. Looking for someone heroic? She’s it.

  • Mark81150

    The fact that after 20 weeks, the baby can be perfectly viable outside the mother… and they STILL demand the “right” to murder that infant, tells who exactly what kind of immoral goons infest the pro-death movement at the activist level.. so damn fixated on distorting the nature of what an abortion is.. they fight tooth and nail to keep women ignorant of what they are doing..

    They scream bloody murder that an ultrasound be performed for the mom choosing an abortion..

    They refuse to allow any discussion of alternatives like adoption..

    even refuse more education on birth control.. because it cuts into the abortion mills income stream..

    They are demanding the “right” to be Gosnell.. and see nothing wrong with delivering that baby alive and screaming only to then sever it’s spine.. the only beef they had with Gosnell, was he got caught doing what they expected him to do..

    None of these Wendy fans has a shred of human decency inside them.. as cold and dead inside as a Nazi death camp guard..

    They’re referring to pro-lifers not wanting their taxes going to irresponsible parents who do irresponsible things with the free money.

    You could be right about it – I hadn’t thought about that aspect of things. Naturally, a left-winger would wring his hands about how “mean, nasty, wingnutses don’t CARE! We hates them forever!” because we expect parents, rather than taxpayers, should provide for a baby’s needs.

    Its interesting to see so many of you “pro-choicers” say that conservatives don’t care about people, especially the children born to these women, but then I suppose trying to force people to be self reliant, responsible adults is something that Liberals don’t understand or believe in.

    I have seen more conservatives and conservative groups, going out to help someone, stop on the road to help a stranded motorist, dive in lake to save someone in distress or give to charities to help after disasters than any liberal. Churches and religious organizations are abound throughout the US and world that dedicate their lives to helping others, such as unwanted children, poor families, missions established to house and feed the poor, soup kitchens set up in slums to help alcohol and drug addicted persons and the list goes on and on…

    However, Liberals as Ive seen, (but not all), care for only themselves as most have lost their common sense. They put criminals such as child molesters back on the street with the theory that they have learned their lesson, or murderers who claim to have had some sort of mental breakdown in mental institutions instead of prisons with only a slap on the wrist. And most seem to rather have everyone dependent on the government with more and more aid going to persons who don’t want to work or do anything that gives some sort of self pride as it is seen as putting others down… They want everyone so equal in mind or knowledge and money there is no room for growth. Read Harrison Bergeron.. this is what type of society Obama and Liberals are searching for and trying to change this country into in my opinion.

  • Hiraghm

    Which is why I don’t ever refer to myself as pro-life. I’m anti-abortion (on equal protection grounds; if a woman can kill a baby because its funny looking, inconvenient and dependent, then I should be able to go around shooting illegal aliens…) .
    But I do favor capital punishment. As you said, it’s something that is earned.
