9 Things You Should Know About Roe v. Wade:

On the fortieth anniversary of the landmark abortion decision, Roe v. Wade, a new poll shows the majority of people under 30 can't name what the case was about. Only 44 percent among those ages 18 to 29 know it dealt with abortion. In an attempt to help fill that knowledge gap, here are 9 things young people—and everyone else—should know about Roe:

Here's the thing...Hobby Lobby isn't asking to be exempted from providing birth control pills for their employees.

They're asking to not be forced to provide aborticients (morning after pill, "Plan B", Ella.)

Unlike a lot of (union) companies who have asked for waiver/exemptions from the whole thing, Hobby Lobby is asking that they not be forced to pay for abortion-causing drugs.

So...let's at least shoot for a little bit of intellectual honesty.

Another thing...

Co-pays. I pay a co-pay for all (ALL) of my medications. My dad pays co-pays for his insulin, heart medication, etc. co-pays will continue for thyroid meds, heart meds, pain meds, cancer meds, diabetes meds.

And liberals have their undergarments bunched up because they don't even want a co-pay for birth control!?!?

$20.00 co-pay for a life-saving drug...
$00.00 co-pay for a life-preventing drug.

They are truly more interested in preventing a life, than saving one.

And yet another

"Preventing" access to birth control...

Seriously. Do they really think that women are so helpless and dumb that if somebody else doesn't pay for their $9-$15 a month prescription, that they (women) can't figure out how to "access" it?

If women can figure out how to buy groceries, vitamins, panty hose...I'm pretty sure they can figure out how to access birth control pills.

What would you do if, after nine months of pregnancy, you gave birth to a baby who unexpectedly had Down syndrome? For two Portland, Oregon parents, the answer is sue. That’s right: they’re suing the hospital because they say doctors didn’t diagnose their daughter while they were pregnant.

Their entire argument consists of the fact that, had they known their four-year-old daughter had an extra chromosome, they wouldn’t have allowed her to live. How can a parent look at their child and then say, “if I had known you had a disability, I wouldn’t have let you live”?

Ethicists Argue in Favor of ‘After-Birth Abortions‘ as Newborns ’Are Not Persons’



The two are quick to note that they prefer the term “after-birth abortion“ as opposed to ”infanticide.”

Why? Because it “[emphasizes] that the moral status of the individual killed is comparable with that of a fetus (on which ‘abortions’ in the traditional sense are performed) rather than to that of a child.”

The authors also do not agree with the term euthanasia for this practice as the best interest of the person who would be killed is not necessarily the primary reason his or her life is being terminated.

In other words, it may be in the parents’ best interest to terminate the life, not the newborns.

This was on the back of a magazine a few years ago and a friend made a file of it and saved it. I want to keep it handy.

Dear Mom,

I'm not sure how to tell you this, but Jenny is becoming such a burden on our family here. Ever since her addition to the family in '24, she has been nothing but problems for us: finding a school, daycare, and even clothing have cost us money. After four years, her brother still isn't getting used to sharing his room with her, being as she's so curious about everything and goes through his things. She's so cute and she is showing signs of real intelligence.

We've discussed the problem with our pastor, and he said that sometimes, difficult decisions have to be made. We decided to seek the help of the state Family Planning and Assistance Center and we think we've come up with the best solution. Jeff is only a few years older than she is, so I don't think he'll understand where she went or remember her for long. We plan on telling her friends that she moved. We made the appointment as soon as they could get us a spot, they're so busy. Jenny has no idea of what it is, she thinks she's going for her vaccinations so she can start school with her friends next month. I'm not concerned since the shot is relatively painless and the whole termination process takes only five minutes, she won't feel a thing.

Mom, I don' t want you to think that we don't love her, we do, but it's just not fair to continue to keep her in a world where she's unwanted. A world of wanted children would be a better place, don't you think? Please, don't give us any of that "right-to-life" grief that grandma gave you about abortions, you know I don't believe in that garbage. I believe no one has the right to control how or when I choose to raise my family. At least they've barred those religious bigots from preaching that Jesus stuff at the centers. Well, anyway, I guess it's good that you and Dad never really spent much time with her, or it might make you feel different. Love to Dad. Let us know if you want some of her ashes.



P.S. I just found out that the IdentiChip we had to have put in her hand is returnable, so you and Dad can get your loan back.

The Dugger family is expecting their 18th child - due New Years Day.

This family was the object of (I'll say) "rage" when #17 came along. Ironically, the (I'll also say) "scorn" came from the "pro-choice" camp. That was when I stopped calling that political movement "pro-choice" and started calling it "pro-abortion".

It seems that they approve of "choice" right up until the point you make a reproductive choice they do not approve of.

"choice" means that a family has a choice. If they choose to have 17 18 children - that is their choice.

Eighteen is housefull of kids...and this is a family full of love.

I have two children. I would happily, gladly, thrillfully, willingly, you name the positive feeling...get more.

If it were physically possible (for a variety of reasons it is unlikely) I would have another. Eighteen? Most likely not. But for the Duggers, any "pro-choice" person who criticizes...is not pro-choice. They are pro-abortion, since that is the choice of having 18 children is not one that is "approved".
