  • Representative Christopher Smith
    or inconvenience or vilification to stop the violence of abortion in the United States and abroad We need to recommit ourselves to the least of our brethren in the womb and to their dear mothers and say anew to God as my favorite Christian rock group Petra sings I am available All of us must say I am available because so much prayer fasting and work needs to be done now You and I have a heavy burden knowing the uncomfortable truth that many refuse to see Abortion is violence against children and it exploits injures and dehumanizes women Those who fashion themselves as advocates of children and pro women while promoting or even acquiescing to abortion are either hypocrites or are living in an unhealthy state of denial The unconscionable cruelty to children from partial birth abortion the execution or a partially born girl or boy by stabbing them in the back of the head and sucking their brains out shatters the myth that abortion is somehow benign just or compassionate It is ugly beyond words And if Americans would only connect the dots they d see the inherent violence of all abortion methods And they would demand compassion justice and protection for unborn children That it seems to me is our calling Let us never shrink form enlightening society that abortion methods dismember and decapitate and cut to pieces the fragile bodies of children that abortion methods pump salt water and other poisons onto their innocent bodies Abortion means violent painful death to little children kids who if allowed to live might someday thrill their parents with their first step play soccer or baseball or maybe make the honor roll in school and fall in love someday All of that potential is lost when the fatalism of abortion

  • Screening Unborn Children for Low Intelligence
    nonsense it s hypocritical The very same people who are clamoring for the protection of choice so called are working overtime to restrict other people s choices They want to restrict smoking they argue for laws against talking on cell phones while driving and they lobby for more restrictions on gun ownership So if the expression anti choice is nonsensical and hypocritical why continue to use it The answer is to divert our attention from what is being chosen Choice you see is a morally empty concept The morality of a choice lies in what we choose No one wants to say he s pro abortion so he simply says he s pro choice Likewise calling people anti abortion focuses our attention on the reality of abortion so it s better to call them anti choice This use of words like choice and anti choice is a smokescreen a twisting and warping of perfectly good words to make a political point A similar process was involved when the word gay became a code word for a particular sexual lifestyle Co opting a term with generally positive connotations made it easy on those on the other side to label people who hold a biblical view of homosexuality as bigots Someone who understood this process well was George Orwell author of the famous book 1984 In his essay Politics and the English Language Orwell said the great enemy of clear language is insincerity When there is a gap between one s real and one s declared aims one turns as it were instinctively to long words and exhausted idioms like a cuttlefish spurting out ink Well said Well nowadays instead of long words the insincere turn to euphemisms and obscure phrases But the effect is the same as in Orwell s day

  • Steve Forbes Leaves Race
    Alan Keyes is four square on the life issue And I would urge the other two candidates if one of them becomes the nominee to leave the Reagan pro life plank in the platform alone You can acknowledge that many Americans don t agree yet with that goal but I don t think you win respect of the American people by abandoning such a basic principle for political short term

  • Right to Life Issue is Moral Imperitive
    different generation of Americans was told that Dred Scott v Sandford was the law of the land and the slavery question had been settled On the contrary no cause is forever lost Not in this ever changing world Because no cause is forever won That s the nature of politics Of ideas Of faith He says of those who attended the convention they understand something If abortion is not wrong abortion on demand abortion for no good medical reason abortion as a routine accepted feature of American society the taking of innocent life without restriction or scruple or qualm then nothing is And soon enough nothing will be given that kind of pervasive unthinking disregard for life He cites assisted suicide as an example Greenberg concludes Now and then I wonder if those on the other side of this issue have thought this thing through or don t they dare think it through In this fight some of us have forgotten that we have an ally in the conscience of our adversaries We should never cease appealing to it Those on the other side of this issue are for life too They just may not know it yet We need

  • Abortion and violence
    music and other material and even diligent parents are often powerless to shield their children from it she said Increased birth rates among single mothers It s amazing how far we can fall in 25 years Charen said This nation has become so wealthy that nearly every family has a microwave oven cell phone designer sneakers and a two car garage But the thing that children need to be happy the love of two committed marriage parents a stable home and reliable rules of conduct have been denied them Reminders appear nearly every day she noted For example 40 percent of the students at Harvard s business school admitted they would cheat their employer if they knew they wouldn t get caught She also referred to a pair of well publicized cases in which teens gave birth and threw the child in the trash the latter at her high school prom Where did nice seemingly normal ordinary middle class American kids get the idea that you can dispose of a child like so much trash Charen asked From the Supreme Court the president Planned Parenthood and the entire pro abortion movement When Roe vs Wade was announced ethicists theologians and legal experts warned this was the first step on a slippery slope that would lead to dispensing with all inconvenient lives she said Because it ignored those voices society is reaping a harvest of assisted suicide she added She said leading advocate Jack Kevorkian paints himself as compassionate But her investigation of some of his 100 victims showed otherwise One was a 39 year old woman who complained of suffering from multiple sclerosis which isn t fatal Charen said When the coroner did an autopsy he found no evidence of any disease Others weren t sick at all but were

  • Pope Compares Abortion to Slavery
    old pope s opening message to the American people was more somber His arm shook as he held the lectern his body stooped over his text Still his voice was firm as urged Americans to reach for a higher moral vision He reminded Americans of the Dred Scott case tried in St Louis Old Courthouse Scott a slave purchased in 1833 by an Army surgeon stationed near St Louis sued for his freedom Living in a free state he said made him a free man In 1857 the U S Supreme Court ruled in effect that slaves were property and not citizens a decision the pope said that declared an entire class of human beings people of African descent outside the boundaries of the national community and the Constitution s protection Today the pope went on the conflict is between a culture that affirms cherishes and celebrates the gift of life and a culture that seeks to declare entire groups of human beings the unborn the terminally ill the handicapped and others considered unuseful to be outside the boundaries of legal protection In Mexico last week the pope signed a declaration setting out the church s goals in the Americas

  • Gov. Robert P. Casey (Father of Pennsylvania State Treasurer Bob Casey) on Roe v. Wade
    and thirty six years ago a human being was declared a piece of property literally led off in chains as people of good conscience sat paralyzed by a ruling of the court The other time was Jan 22 1973 An entire class of human beings was excluded from the protection of the state their fate declared a private matter That sunbeam Hamilton envisioned the Creator s signature on each new life was deflected by human hands No one has ever described what happened more concisely than Justice Byron White in his dissent It was an act of raw judicial power power stripped of all moral and constitutional authority Roe v Wade was not then one more natural adaptation in our constitutional evolution It was not like Brown v Board of Education a refinement extending law and liberty to an excluded class Just the opposite It was an abrupt mutation a defiance of all precedent a disjuncture of law and authority Where we used to think of law as above politics in Roe law and politics became indistinguishable How strange it is to hear abortion now defended in the name of consensus Roe itself the product of a contrived and fraudulent test case was a judicial decree overruling a consensus expressed in the laws of most states It arose not from the wisdom of the ages or from the voice of the people but from the ideology of the day and the will of a determined minority It compels us to ignore the consensus of mankind about the treatment of the unborn It commands us to disregard the clearest of Commandments After 20 long years the people of the United States have refused to heed that command Roe v Wade is a law we must observe but never honor In Hamilton
