Unlike the weather, few people like talking about abortion. Nevertheless, much like the weather, abortion is real and omnipresent. A principal difference is that the weather is sometimes beautiful and abortion is always ugly.
In America, the foundation of the right to legally kill a pre-born child is rooted in the Supreme Court’s split 1973 Roe v. Wade Decision based on a woman’s non-existent constitutional right to privacy. Just as with SCOTUS’ flawed 1857 Dred Scott Decision, Roe v. Wade will some day be overturned.
In the interim while we await that surety, the most committed pro-abortion president in history, Barack Hussein Obama, may have inadvertently provided the next president a precedent to scrap Roe v. Wade or, at the minimum, render its enforcement useless.
By announcing he has the authority to bypass Congress and rule by executive decree and by making so-called recess appointments when the Senate was not in recess, Obama has established two principles: First, that the Chief Executive has the power to govern by fiat and, second, that he can appoint Supreme Court justices without the advice and consent of the Senate whenever he determines that body is in recess, whether they are or aren’t.
Of course, that whole scenario is a stretch. It’s based on the assumptions that the next president will be a pro-life Republican, that he is not a “constitutional scholar” like Obama, but that he flouts the laws of the land anyway.
Unfortunately, that stretch is the only recent plus in the ongoing battle of the Abortion Lobby against those who believe in the sanctity of human life.
Two stories–not scenarios–reveal that the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, PPFA, is a conglomeration of liars and that a recommended abortafacient drug can be almost as deadly to mothers as it is to babies.
The PPFA has for decades billed itself as a beneficent enterprise dedicated to, well, planning parenthood, providing pre-natal care and information on “reproductive health,” etc. As such over the years, it has been generously rewarded for its beneficence with billions of taxpayer dollars with which to continue its planning and caring and informing despite the fact it functions primarily as the nation’s busiest abortionist.
Exposed repeatedly as facilitators of child prostitution, purveyors of smut to children, and illegally performing underage abortions, PPFA still has friends in Congress and a major buddy in the White House, all of whom refuse to cut its public funding–46% of its billion dollar budget.
In view of Planned Parenthood’s annual report, rational thinkers might expect its supporters would re-evaluate their position but don’t bet on it.
PPFA’s annual report indicated the organization conducted 329,445 abortions in 2010 while providing prenatal care to 31,098 women and referring 841 women to adoption agencies.
Do the math: Ninety-one percent of pregnant women consulting Planned Parenthood had their babies aborted. PPFA’s version of planning and caring consists primarily of destroying innocent lives.
As further evidence of PPFA’s true nature and activities, the number of women receiving pre-natal care at a Planned Parenthood facility declined by 25% from 2009 to 2010 and adoption referrals fell by 14% over the same period. Evidently, the abortion business is far more lucrative than the planning, caring, or referring business. http://bit.ly/ygnSjb

Margaret Sanger, the racist geneticist founder of Planned Parenthood, would be very proud of what she wrought.
As if that were not sufficient evidence to convince people that Planned Parenthood should be re-named the Abortion Federation of America perhaps an FDA report on the adverse effects of PPFA’s highly-recommended abortafacient will help.
RU486, the “morning after drug,” intended to supplant morality and discretion by conveniently eradicating the products of immorality and indiscretion following sexual intercourse, isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.
Unmentioned by PPFA or by other abortion providers is an FDA report that RU486 is almost as great a danger to women as it is to the pre-born.
Without fanfare, the FDA reported that fourteen women have died and more than 600 were hospitalized–half requiring major blood transfusions–after using RU486. The FDA noted further that serious or severe infections occurred in 256 patients and that more than 2,200 women reported serious medical problems as a consequence of RU486. (http://1.usa.gov/MloA2)

Deciding between having an abortion or giving birth to a child has to be one of the most traumatic choices any woman can make. Opting to cause the ultimate trauma, the death of an innocent human being, has to be even more soul-wrenching and certainly life-changing.
