I was reading through the website of what I think is the most disgusting pro-abortion organization out there, Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice, and found this:
“The pro-life position is really a pro-fetus position, and the pro-choice position is really pro-woman. Those who take the pro-fetus position define the woman in relation to the fetus. They assert the rights of the fetus over the right of the woman to be a moral agent or decision maker with respect to her life, health, and family security.”
So, apparently in choosing to be either pro-life or pro-abortion, we have to choose between the woman and the child.
My question is, why does being pro-life and wanting to save unborn children’s lives make us anti-woman? What could we possibly have against women? Apparently it is because we are “anti-choice” and want to “take women’s choices away and control them.” Why, as a woman, would I be anti-woman or want to control women? And, if pro-life is “pro-fetus” and “anti-woman,” does that mean that pro-abortion is “pro-woman,” but “anti-unborn baby?”
I am all for women making decisions about their own body. But abortion affects not just a woman’s body, but TWO SEPARATE BODIES. Abortion damages women and kills unborn children. I support a woman’s right to kill her baby as much as I support murderers being able to choose whether to kidnap and kill someone else.
Apparently we do not trust women, either. We don’t “trust them to make their own choices.” However, after having an abortion: Read rest of article here
The pro-abortion left tries to tell you that the are NOT pro-abortion but simply “pro-choice.” Well someone forgot to tell these nationally organized pin heads.
Hey you Catholics! In case you didn’t look close at that pic here it is again…
Not only do they not have respect for human life they despise you….just sayin’
I have an upcoming article that will address the issue of abortion and how those who call themselves Christians but fail the unborn with their vote are accountable. This Catholic video is a breath of fresh air in that regard as it reminds Catholics of their responsibility to future generations.
Another incredible video by the people at http://www.theradiancefoundation.org
It’s time end Planned Parenthood’s primary mission. The killing of unborn persons for profit.
POWERFUL Video on the attack on America’s black children by the PP arm of the Democratic Party

I’m suspecting they aren’t suggesting celibacy during this 40 days of prayer to the goddess of dead babies as that would be bad for future business 😉
Planned Parenthood Sets Up 40 Days of Prayer for Abortion
by Steven Ertelt | Washington, DC | LifeNews.com | 4/10/12 7:44 PM
A local Planned Parenthood abortion business in California is copycatting the 40 Days for Life campaign, which recently resulted in saving the lives of more than 700 unborn children from abortion. The abortion business has set up its own 40 Days of Prayer for the local abortion center.
“We trust you to decide about your sexuality, having your children, and planning your family,” says a flier promoting the Humbolt County Clergy for Choice event. “We are religious leaders who value all human life. We accept that religions differ about when life begins. We are here to help.”
“We believe that human life is holy. That’s why we believe in your right to choose to be a parent or not,” the pro-abortion religious leaders continue. “It can be helpful to talk with friends you trust, with licensed counselors, and with whatever religious person you choose. Humboldt County Clergy are available to talk with you about the spiritual aspects of choice. Find out more by calling Six Rivers Planned Parenthood.”
“Humboldt County Clergy for Choice invite you to set aside time with your family and community to support women and reproductive justice for 40 days from March 18th through April 27th,” they say.
* “Day 1: Today we pray for women for whom pregnancy is not good news, that they know they have choices.”
* “Day 34: Today we give thanks for abortion escorts who guide women safely through hostile gauntlets of protestors.”
*”Day 36 Today we pray for the families we’ve chosen, May they know the blessing of choice.”

Disdain for pregnant women in the workplace is at a record high in our nation. Pregnancy Discrimination cases are on the rise. In the past ten years the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission or EEOC has resolved pregnancy discrimination cases totaling $150.5 million in damages for over 52,000 women. Some say this is because of a competitive labor market that shows little mercy to moms. I believe this is yet another tragic byproduct of our acceptance of abortion.
While abortion does not cause this discrimination, it has lead to a widespread devaluing of motherhood in society. How can we expect a nation that encourages women to kill their children to also respect the vocation of motherhood? Motherhood is being mocked, belittled, and demolished with every baby sacrificed at the altar of convenience. Abortion is an evil root that bears the fruit of dishonor towards women. Women are continually pressured to choose abortion to enable them to continue pursuing education and career goals. Children are thought of as burdensome, unworthy investments that hinder productivity. If mothers think that way, why wouldn’t employers and bosses do the same?
Women who bravely balance family and career responsibilities are struggling because of scrutiny in the workplace. Dr. Mary Beamer is a chiropractor who was fired from her job after missing 11 days of work because of “Hyperemesis Gravidarum” – a severe case of morning sickness that causes dehydration. Beamer’s employer was given documents from her emergency room and doctor’s appointments. Before returning to work, Mary got an unpleasant phone call from the practice’s owner. She was told, “I don’t want you coming back to the office because I don’t like how you are running it.” Mary was fired and her health insurance benefits were canceled within days.
In an attempt to get justice, she sued for pregnancy and sex discrimination in 2007. Her employer counter-sued for $50,000, claiming that Beamer was required to pay for lost patient services and training per her employee agreement. In May 2012, her case will finally be brought before a judge. Beamer told ABC News that she “lost almost everything.” Her family lost their home and had to move into her sister’s basement. She is now living with her husband and daughter in another city, awaiting trial.
We have laws that protect pregnant women in the workplace. Mainly the 1978 Pregnancy Discrimination Act. The 1993 Family and Medical Leave Act provides some employees with three months of unpaid leave to care for their child. Last month, the U.S Equal Employment Opportunity Commission held a public meeting in Washington, D.C. to discuss pregnancy discrimination. A question was raised as to why pregnancy discrimination continues to increase after the Act was passed to prohibit it. Joan Williams, director of the Center for Work Life Law at the University of California-Hastings, said it may be because the stereotypes regarding gender and caregiving are very strong. “Although nobody says, ‘This is not a suitable job for a woman,’ they say, ‘This is not a suitable job for a mother.’”
Mary Beamer’s lawyer told ABC News that pregnant women are losing their jobs because they might need to use the bathroom more frequently than “normal,” pump breast milk, or sit down periodically.
Donnicia Venters claims she lost her job because she asked if she could pump breast milk in the backroom. She called the company president to talk about her return to work. After mentioning the breast pump, He said, “Well, we filled your spot.” When she questioned, he replied, “Well, we thought you were not coming back.” Venters said she was willing to pump at home if necessary. Her case was brought to court, and a Texas judge ruled in favor of her employer, stating that “firing someone because of lactation or breast-pumping is not sex discrimination.”
Some cases are even stranger. A pregnant nursing home activities worker was fired for not being able to lift a table, and a retail worker was fired because she needed to drink water on the job.
Physically weaker, pregnant women are being mistreated. Companies are prioritizing production over people. Loyal workers are being pushed out with little or no remorse from their employers. Women wonder if announcing their pregnancy will cost them their job. People cling to contraceptives and silently head to abortion centers because of fear. What type of culture has Roe v. Wade produced? A selfish, individualistic, money-hungry, unjust nation.
A society that allows abortion is one that unwittingly suffers the consequences of generations of disempowered and devalued women. The fight for women’s rights begins in the womb.
