Brave New World – Planned Parenthood has announced on their website that they are now promoting the right to “safe” abortions. Yes, that is what I said,“safe abortions!” More specifically the site states:
So, here is my question, isn’t murder always inherently unsafe to the victim? I am not a seasoned occupational safety guy, but I have yet to find an OSHA standard for safe murder! What could it possibly say if it existed?
The fact is there can be no such thing as a “safe” abortion anymore than there can be a safe murder. By definition they are all unsafe! Planned Parenthood’s site goes on to note that 19 million women around the world have unsafe abortions each year. What they fail to mention, is that in the United States alone since 1973 over 49 million babies have had unsafe abortions. They, unlike the 19 million women of concern, are all DEAD.
So let’s hold onto this thought for a moment and go way back in time (make the go back in time noise here) to the trial of our good friend Ted Bundy. You remember Ted right? Say hi Ted…
Ted confessed to the brutal murder of about 30 women. Authorities concede however, that the actual number may have been as high as 100. Ted brutally bludgeoned and raped each one of his victims in addition to committing other unspeakable acts. Now, let’s apply the Planned Parenthood “safe murder” doctrine to Ted’s trial.
Judge: Mr. Bundy – you are charged with the brutal murder of 30 women. What do you have to say for yourself?
Ted: Guilty as charged judge.
Judge: Fine. Before we begin this trial however, I just have one question for you.
Ted: Yes your honor?
Judge: How are you?
Ted: Excuse me sir?
Judge: Well you beat those girls to death with pipes and bats, and all reports say you were not wearing any eye protection or protective outer garments. You could have really hurt yourself!
Ted: Well I appreciate your concern, but I don’t see what….
Judge: Mr. Bundy, do you know how many murderers accidentally hurt or even kill themselves in the process of murdering? Murdering people is dangerous…what if one of those girls had poked you in the eye? You could have slipped on their blood and broken your neck! What were you thinking?
OK … you get it – right? That is a pretty twisted scene I just dramatized. No one would have stood for it with Ted, yet we embrace the exact same scenario with abortion to the tune of 1.2 million infant deaths per year. Our caring compassionate society commits murder and focuses its concern on the welfare of the perpetrator. This is, at best, mass insanity. The numbers below make Hitler look like an amateur.
According to the National Right to Life website:
Not only are we failing to stand up for the victims, we have a nationally recognized institution that is committed to the safety of the murderers. History also reminds us that any society that kills its own people will ultimately destroy itself in the process. When I think of the twisted hypocrisy of Planned Parenthood’s position and how we have accepted it as…well acceptable, I cannot help but recall one of the three slogans carved on the Ministry of Truth building in George Orwell’s 1984:
IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH
Clearly these words ring true for the Pro-Choice crowd. Let’s make unsafe abortions safe for the victims, and we will solve the other problem as well.
Great post! I definitely share your views here. The idea of a “safe” abortion is a ridiculous oxymoron.
The insanity of the whole thing just baffles me. I am hoping to really pursue this issue more in the future. I also want to take on the viability issue. That one will be fun too. Thanks for checking in!
I really love American Missive. Great writing. I will be checking in often. I also have you guys on our blog roll
Great post. I do think the pro choice poeple miss some important concepts that make their statements supporting abortion seem ridiculous.
I have heard the pro choice argument that “a woman has a right to control her own body”. OK, great, control your own body. But the baby is not her body. It’s the baby’s body. Why doesn’t the baby get to control it’s own body?
If a baby is born and the next day the mother kills the baby, that’s murder. If she has an abortion the day before it would be born it is not murder. That makes no sense at all.
Agree Completely! You should start blogging!
I should not be allowed to have a blog. I can’t even spell people.
