Abortion - #2805 - Abortion on Demand is Just as Immoral as Slavery - SnyderTalk Editorial (2) The Coverup of Abortion's Real Risks - American Thinker (3) To Fund or Not to Fund: Planned Parenthood Performed '1' Abortion Every 95 Seconds Last Year - The Blaze (4) Planned Parenthood Spent More Than $1 Million Electing Democrats Last Cycle - Washington Examiner

.......Slavery is a blotch on the history of this nation. We’re still trying to overcome vestiges of that terrible era. For example, the US welfare system bears a striking resemblance to the plantation way of life. The plantation owner provided the basic necessities needed for his slaves’ survival while he and his family lived in the lap of luxury. Slavery isn’t the only blemish on our historical record. Abortion on demand is disgraceful too. It never ceases to amaze me that so many people who can’t tolerate animals suffering – PETA people for instance – don’t think twice about chopping an innocent unborn child into tiny pieces and sucking it out of the womb (D and C abortion) or stabbing a child in the base of the skull, inserting a tube, and using a vacuum pump to suck its brains out while only the head remains in the birth canal (partial birth abortion). I don’t want to see animals suffer either, but I’m not blind to the moral incongruity.  I used to talk about abortion with my leadership students at the University of Virginia to illustrate how callous our society has become. When I brought up partial birth abortions, most of the “woman’s right to choose” supporters in the class told me that they didn’t have a problem with the procedure. When I asked them if they understood what a partial birth abortion is, few of them knew anything about it except its name. After I described the procedure in detail, they routinely said, “I don’t believe that.”  Read entire article ..........  Please read this editorial from Neil Snyder to the conclusion, as the dialogue encouraged in his classroom at the University of Virginia with several students on these two issues, is very revealing as to how we can all approach these difficult issues. 

The Coverup of Abortion's Real Risks - American Thinker - Abortionists in this country are actively burying risk research just as tobacco companies did many decades ago. There are now literally piles of genuine medical research which show what most would deem dire elevated risks from abortion -- not just to the baby killed in the procedure -- but to the woman and also to the future siblings of the aborted baby.  Just as tobacco companies once deep-sixed any negative research on the smoker's health and well-being, abortionists and their extensive lobbying web of far-left, social-engineering "feminists" now scamper to squelch every new research study which demonstrates elevated risk associated with their killing-field business model.  Read more.........  Please read, great article.

To Fund or Not to Fund: Planned Parenthood Performed 1 Abortion Every 95 Seconds Last Year - The Blaze -  Planned Parenthood performed 332,278 abortions in the United States in 2009, according to a fact sheet the group published last month.  That is about as many as the 333,012 people who lived in the city of Cincinnati, Ohio, in 2009, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.  The 332,278 abortions Planned Parenthood performed over the 365 days of 2009 equals an average of 910 lives terminated per day–or about 38 per hour, or one every 95 seconds.  CNS News also points out that 90 percent of Planned Parenthood’s $363.2 million came directly from the federal government–or from Medicaid, which is a federal-state program. And that’s according to Planned Parenthood spokeswoman Tait Sye.  Read more.......

Planned Parenthood Spent More than $1 Million Electing Democrats Last Cycle - Washington Examiner - Here's something to keep in mind as Democrats risk a government shutdown in order to preserve federal subsidies of Planned Parenthood. From the Center for Responsive Politics: In 2010, Planned Parenthood and a California affiliate together spent more than $700,000 on federal lobbying efforts, a Center for Responsive Politics analysis of federal lobbying records finds. By comparison, all other organizations that primarily advocate for abortion rights collectively spent $247,280 on federal lobbying efforts during the same period, according to the Center's research.
