As Pro-Life Republicans and one Democrat in the House of Representatives prepare to introduce HR 3, the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act, designed “to prevent federal funding for abortion procedures by codifying the Hyde Amendment, which has long barred federal agencies from paying for abortions,” the pro-abortion lobby is equally prepared to defeat it. 

NARAL, which regularly changes the meaning of that acronym, (National Association for the Repeal of Abortion Laws, National Abortion Rights Action League, National Abortion and Reproductive Rights Action League), predictably attacked the measure as astoundingly hypocritical. 

Nancy Keenan, NARAL president, claimed “It seems that they’re fine with government intrusion, as long as it involves interfering in women’s personal, private decisions.”  Her logic is that, “These same lawmakers voted to repeal a health-care law that provides prenatal care and the promise of no-cost birth control to women.  Now, they want to make it even harder for women to purchase private health insurance that includes abortion coverage with their own money:” 

Keenan’s statement is incorrect and is a misrepresentation for a number of reasons.  First, Right to Lifers opposed Obamacare provisions to clandestinely use taxpayer funding, not for prenatal care and birth control but to pay for abortions.  Secondly, whether taxpayer-funded or individually-funded, whatever the source of monies to pay for it, abortion is still an abomination. 

It’s also interesting to note that NARAL rarely uses the term, “abortion,” opting instead to refer to “reproductive rights” and other less honest euphemisms to describe the taking of a pre-born human being’s rights. 

America, STOP Murdering Our   However, lies and euphemisms aside, West Philadelphia, PA abortionist Dr. Kermit Gosnell is getting a bad rap simply because he used a scissors to complete seven abortions rather than the far more politically correct scalpel, suction aspiration, chemical burning, or other legally and socially-approved methods of terminating life in utero.  If Dr. Gosnell had done the grisly job right in the first place, he wouldn’t have had to resort to scissors in the second place but whether he should now be charged with murder is debatable.

Gosnell, whose “abortion clinic was described as a filthy, foul-smelling ‘house of horrors,’ ” according to one account, was also charged with an eighth murder for overdosing a pregnant mother with pain killers, but that’s a whole other story.  So, too, are the facts he lacked any obstetrical or gynecological training or credentials and that he became a millionaire from his butchery. 

Pennsylvania authorities were shocked by the conditions in his ”clinic which catered to poor, immigrant and minority women” and even more shocked at the state’s “complete regulatory collapse.”  With great indignation, the local district attorney announced that “Pennsylvania is not a Third World country,” even as he conceded, “There were several oversight agencies that stumbled upon and should have shut down Kermit Gosnell long ago:”

Very unfortunately for those eight women and for their babies, those agencies were oblivious of the conditions at Gosnell’s “clinic,” a word which used to describe facilities for outpatient care and now can describe an abortion factory. 

Abortion the truth about Pro-   More significantly, those agencies were totally unaware that Gosnell frequently performed what are sometimes called late term abortions and which could more properly, if gruesomely and offensively, be termed chopping and dicing or infanticide within the womb.  In practice for 30 years, Gosnell, described that procedure as, “snipping,” as in plunging his scissors into the infant’s skull, collapsing its brain, and snipping its spinal cord.  God only knows and bumbling, stumbling Pennsylvania authorities certainly don’t know the actual number of his criminal abortions. 

In defense of Dr. Gosnell, he was only doing what NARAL and some limited segments of American society want and for which they exert significant pressure on lawmakers, a quick disposal of the so-called “product of conception.”  

Gosnell’s major mistake was in being so obsessed with killing babies that he just forgot to maintain a nice, clean facility to conduct his gory chores.  Is that so bad?  NARAL wouldn’t think so.
