Daily Kos Article Says Number of Abortions is 'Too Low,' Doesn't Want Them Rare

April 28 was apparently Abortion Uber Alles day at the liberal Web site Daily Kos. Aimee Thorne-Thomsen of the Pro-Choice Public Education Project stated that the number of women who receive abortions is “too low” in “Keep Abortions Safe and Legal? Yes. Make it Rare? Not the Point.”

To make a few of my own comments about this article, I think it's really disgusting to hear people like Thorne-Thomsen call abortion a matter of "reproductive justice". There is nothing just about killing the innocent.

Thorne-Thomsen talks about "caring for women" when promoting abortion as a right, and yet I wonder if she has talked about the harmful consequences of abortion for the women who get them.

Even secular studies have shown that women who have abortions are more likely to have thoughts of suicide, experience depression, infections, sterility, and even death. Why don't the pro-abortion politicians and Planned-Parenthood and the like talk about these things if they care so much about women?

It's time to realize that women are EXPLOITED by the abortion agenda.

Maybe Thorne-Thomsen and some others "think" they care about women, but if they really care about women, they would ENCOURAGE them to have their babies and not kill them.

The truth is, that it is the PRO-LIFE people who really care about women, as much as the babies in their wombs. It is the Pro-lifers who are there to help pick up the broken pieces of women's lives who have had abortions and suffer the mental, emotional, spiritual trauma that inevitably follows.

Who really cares about someone and encourages them to do something that will most likely cause them to experience long term depression, thoughts of suicide, infection and possibly death? Is that love? Is that caring?

If they aren't aware of these things, why aren't they?

Thorne-Thomsen also said, “Do we dare admit that increasing the number of abortions might be not only good for women’s health, but also moral and just?”

How can anyone think that taking an action that even secular studies have shown to increase rates of suicide, depression, infections, sterility, and even death, is good for women's health? And then to top off witht the absurd notion that increasing the number of abortions is "moral and just". But as I said already, there is nothing just about killing the innocent.

Baby Boy Survived Abortion, Lived Two Days After Doctors Left Him to Die

A couple of comments on this article. 1) It says that: "A 22-week old disabled boy survived an abortion attempt in southern Italy, but doctors left him to die afterwards and he survived for two days before passing away. The boy's mother was pregnant for the first time but decided to have an abortion after prenatal scans suggested the unborn child was disabled."

As a person with a disability I say, watch out my fellow handicapped brothers and sisters! It's a dangerous thing when disabilities are seen as legitimate reasons for abortions. What does it say about our value as people in the eyes of society? It says we're not worth having around. It's the same kind of eugenics mentality that Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood had, who Hitler and his ilk respected.

Disabled or not, there is no legitimate reason for abortion. Every baby has a right to live, even ones conceived in rape. After all, why should a baby have to die for the crime of the man who committed th rape? And many women say the same thing.

Another part of this article states: "Italy's abortion law allows abortions up to 24 weeks of pregnancy in certain cases but it also requires doctors to do all they can to save the life of a baby who survives a botched abortion attempt."

Apparently they think it's ok to kill the baby as long as it's still in the womb, but one outside, suddenly the baby has a right to life. Don't they see they are admitting that the baby is a person even inside the womb? How tragic that people like that are the ones making the laws.

New safety label for birth control pills - Bayer to include blood clot risks on Yaz and Yasmin packages

I wanted to post this link because I think this warning helps to highlight the evil behind birth control, which is an intrinsic evil. The culture of death is very self-centered, and is willing not only to put up barriers to new life (contraception), but also destroy it in the womb (abortion), which Fr. John Corapi calls, "the unholy offspring of birth cntrol". The contraceptive mentality is so obstinate, that even with the risk to women's health, contraception is still sought after and practiced. Granted there can be risks involved in legitimate medical treatments, but that's a very different matter. Legitimate medical treatment is ordered toward the preservation and maintainance of a person's health, while contraception is (dis)ordered toward preventing new life, which is not a legitimate medical treatment.

The link follows:

WASHINGTON - Bayer HealthCare said Friday it has added new information about the risks of blood clots to its contraceptive pills Yax and Yasmin.
