A Rational Look at Abortions and Planned Parenthood

Standard

Let’s start with Planned Parenthood.

Except in the case of medical necessity, abortion is a life choice that should be made by a woman and a medical professional; not by a politician, religious official or a government agency. As a life choice, unless the mother’s life or health is endangered, the choice to abort should be paid for by the woman, not by taxpayers. How or why Planned Parenthood ever started getting paid by the feds for performing abortions is irrelevant, that funding should stop! Not all funding!

Apparently Planned Parenthood performs many helpful services for women who cannot afford testing or medication on their own, Personally I have no problem with them getting our money for that, as long as the people who use their services actually need that financial help.

Unfortunately, some people who are well off financially got that way and stay that way by cheating the system: getting charity, assistance, food stamps, tax breaks, etc. that they don’t need or deserve. Those are the people who should be ‘cut off!’

As I started out saying, I believe that abortion or no abortion is a decision that belong solely to the prospective mother. I find it bizarre  that, when the prospective mother makes the decision to terminate her pregnancy, suddenly every moralistic idiot in our society finds something to say about it.

Born or Not Born

If a woman made the decision to “have a baby”, not one of the aforementioned moralizing idiots would know about that child until it is born (born defined by Websters: “brought into life by the process of birth”) The well being of that child would be the mother’s ‘legal responsibility. It would be a life protected under our laws and our Constitution. If that child then died by normal circumstance: disease, organ failure or accident, it’s a tragedy for that mother and for that family unit. If that child died through neglect or an intentional act, the law would attempt to bring someone to justice for the act.

If a woman decides, for whatever reason, NOT to have a baby, but she is already pregnant, I believe she should have the right to terminate the pregnancy at some point before the baby is born, i.e., “brought into life . . .”. That decision does not give anyone else a moral responsibility for that baby’s life. That decision does NOT make a woman’s baby public property — that decision does not suddenly make that baby EVERYONE’S child, everyone’s concern or everyone’s problem. The unborn baby is still inside the mother, still feeding on her nourishment, still requiring her blood and respiration. To assume, at that point, that ANYONE but the mother has ANY moral claim to that unborn baby’s existence is completely illogical as well as morally absurd.

The social rules were made centuries ago: women have children or do not have children the circumstances of either case should not be open to discussion or governed by anyone’s moral code, except for the woman’s and, in most cases, the biological father’s.

Planned Parenthood Selling Baby Parts??

(Selling Baby Parts: That’s what Planned Parenthood”s opponents call it because they want the public suitably shocked!)

Having watched some of the videos that have come out it seems that some of Planned Parenthood’s activities may border on illegality, if that is the case, the people who are acting illegally should be brought to justice, like every else who breaks the law. That may justify a federal government supervised reorganization, (since they are using tax money), but as usual the moralizers want to whip everyone into a frenzy and will continue to pretend that totally de-funding the organization is the only option.

Shutting down Planned Parenthood is a poor option. Their mission statement emphasizes reproductive health and education as well as abortions, unless you are ready to assume that Planned Parenthood does NO GOOD for the community, there is no reason to judge it based only on their ability to perform safe, legal abortions or based on someone’s self-righteous opposition to abortion.

Go Donald GO!

Standard

We finally have a presidential candidate who understands what the United States is becoming under the Obama administration and under Liberals in both parties and he’s declared war on the establishment!

The establishment that is allowing our country to be invaded by foreigners who ignore our immigration laws because they know that our leaders are soft and our president has no respect for our country, its laws, our borders or our national sovereignty. They know that our leaders are more interested in gaining the love and praise of the Liberal media than they are in maintaining the security and stability of our country’s borders.

The establishment that has our military nuetered and declawed for fear of making our enemies feel like endangered species; the endangered species they should be in a civilized world and the endangered species they will become if the American public has the intestinal fortitude to elect a president in 2016 who says “enough is enough” — a president like Donald Trump.

Yes, Trump has stepped on some toes and angered many candidates, but anger from Liberals and from Conservatives who are more Liberal than they are Conservative is to be expected when you speak the plain unvarnished truth as Trump is doing.

On John McCain: Trump was too brash and frankly wrong when he spoke out against John McCain, who certainly WAS a hero as is every other soldier who puts on a uniform and risks his or her life by fighting America’s enemies. That was not the John McCain Trump should have been going after; the John McCain, who, as a Senator and the ranking member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, has NOT raised enough holy Hell about the treatment of our veterans to get the system changed is the McCain who deserves his and our wrath. The McCain who in his fifth term as Senator is so enmeshed in the Washington bureaucracy, he has become impotent.

America, now in its darkest hours because of a president who is far more anti-American than he is patriotic, needs a man like Donald Trump. Trump is not part of the Washington establishment and he speaks his mind — and, if you’ve been listening, you’ll realize that almost all of what he is saying not only makes sense, but it is a way to save our country after the last decade of its decay.
