Roe v. Wade 35th Anniversary-37 Million People Cannot Attend the Party
Today marks the 35th Anniversary of Roe v. Wade, and it is estimated that over 37 million babies have been aborted since 1973 in the United States. To put that in perspective, if you wiped the total population of New York City, Chicago and Los Angeles off the map–that would still be a few hundred thousand short of 37 million.
There are news stories all over the web today about this–and some sites are having a party. The National Organization of Women says on their webpage that “continued vigilance is necessary.” In fact, the President has this to say: “This year we have the chance to elect a new administration and send new members to Congress who will help protect and expand our reproductive freedom. Come November we must elect a president who will be vigilant in upholding a woman’s right to make her own childbearing decisions, including access to birth control and abortion,” said NOW President Kim Gandy.
I thought I would include her picture here:
You see, her picture can appear on this site because her mother did not choose to have her expelled from her womb before she was ready in an intentional act of killing her. Lucky Kim.
I like the new terms the pro-death crowd is using–“reproductive freedom” and “reproductive justice.” You see, “freedom” and “justice” are so valuable to us here in America. Throughout our history men and women have died to preserve the precious nature of “freedom” and “justice.” But the unborn child–his/her “freedom” and “justice” are in the hands of another. The unborn child, with no voice, no podium, no blog to write on has to rely on one person to protect his/her “freedom” and “justice.” That person is his/her mother. And who better? For only a mother will love, care and protect a child more than anyone else in the world. Only a mother understands the pain and joy her child experiences. A mother would be the first to give her life for her child if called upon to do so. And yet… Ms. Gandy calls upon mothers to be “vigilant” in her right to end the life of her unborn child.
“Vigilant” is a great word. It means to be keenly watchful to detect danger or to be wary. You only have to add a small “e” to the end of this word and you get “vigilante.” A “Vigilante” is any person who takes the law into his or her own hands. In its adjective form it means “done violently and summarily, without recource to lawful procedures.”
I think that since the “pro-choice” crowd has come up with new terms–to be fair “pro-lifers” ought to do the same. So let’s call them what they really are: “Reproductive Vigilantes.”
The definition of “Reproductive Vigilantes” therefore would be one who, without recourse to the rights and freedoms of the unborn, decides summarily and violently to end the life of that unborn child.”
Now with my new PC term in hand, let’s discuss the beautiful State of Vermont. Today an article hailing the Anniversary of Roe appeared. In that article we have the following quote: “For a generation of women and men born after Roe, it is incumbent upon us to remember that the right to make personal childbearing decisions has enable women to pursue educational and employment opportunities that were often unthinkable before Roe,” said Rep. Rachel Weston, D-Burlington.
Here is Rachel’s picture–lucky for her, her mom chose to not end her life before her voice could be heard in the Vermont Legislature. Lucky for her, her mother was not a Reproductive Vigilante.
But I suppose I’m being too harsh, after all, a very famous world leader expressed his pro-choice view when he said, ” in view of the large families of native population, it could only suit us if girls and women there had as many abortions as possible.” Who was that famous person? Well, lucky for him I can show his picture too:
Today of all days, we need to get on our knees and beg forgiveness that we have allowed this Country to end the lives of 37 million people (more than Hitler, more than Stalin) out of convenience and in the fraudulent names of “freedom” and “Justice” and “Equality.” To use such words in this context is a bullet to the head of the men and women who have fought for such rights only to see the U.S. strip those rights away from the most innocent among us. This is not a day to celebrate but rather a day to mourn. It is the anniversary of the death of numerous generations of children and grandchildren and furture scientists, doctors, lawyers, teachers and yes, directors of non-profit organizations and state legislators.
So I would ask us all to focus on those below, those who were fortunate enough to have loving moms instead of Reproductive Vigilantes:
God Bless every Mom who no matter what the cost, no matter the inconvenience, no matter their age, no matter their economic status, realized that life is precious and that the life of the unborn child growing inside them was more precious than their reputation, their social status, their economic status and their personal selfish plans for the future. Thank you for choosing LIFE over SELF.
