Let’s Talk About the Pro-Choice LIE

Let’s Talk About the Pro-Choice LIE June 17, 2018

It’s Father’s Day, so it seems as good a day as any to talk about this myth that is perpetuated by the left, and the harridans that promote the act of infanticide, under the guise of “choice.”

Let’s begin with some statistics, just to get our bearing, maybe a “good news, bad news” kind of thing.

First, the good news: It appears that the number of reported abortions has been on the decline in the United States.

Then, the bad news: The number of reported abortions has been on the decline in the United States.

It’s all in the wording.

There have been over 55 million abortions performed in the United States since 1973, according to the U.S. Center for Disease Control and the Guttmacher Institute.

From 1973 to 1997, the CDC received data from all 50 states; however, beginning in 1998, some states did not report, including California.

In 2014, several states, including California, Maryland, and New Hampshire – did not report abortions to the CDC. Based on other sources, the total number of abortions in those states in 2014 is approximately 188,000 – the majority occurring in California.

So while the idea of a decrease in abortions in the United States is one to cheer, when we realize that some states (the liberal ones – of course) refuse to own up to their treachery, the picture becomes murkier.

By 2014, that number was still down to about 840,669, which would equal up to around 2,300 abortions per day.

That’s tragic.

Just to put it in scope: If you counted every school shooting that resulted in death – even those skewed numbers of shootings that occurred in parking lots or after school hours – since 1973 there have been 454 school shooting deaths, in total.

And don’t get me wrong. I’m not making light of those school deaths. Every life matters, and I weep every time some twisted individual goes into a school and takes a life with such callousness.

My problem is with those hypocrites marching and caterwauling for the cameras when there’s a school shooting that might take out 2 lives or might take out a dozen, but they’re silent about another couple of thousand that were taken out on that very day, who never even got a chance to go to school.

Every life matters.

Abortion activists will stomp their feet, don their vagina costumes, take to the streets, screaming about “Choice!” but is that really what they want? Choice?

I recently saw a social media discussion where one young feminine pronoun person was insisting on calling pro-life activists, “anti-choice,” and I’m guessing among the new breed of abortionistas, it’s the current strategy.

Think about it. In general, the word “choice” is a pretty positive word, with no immediately negative connotations. To call themselves “pro-choice” and demonize those that disagree with them by calling them “anti-choice” draws clear battle lines.

It’s a PR trick and it’s wholly dishonest.

For the pro-life set, there are options on the table that they battle for, pray for, hope for each day.

Option 1: Keep your baby, seek out resources, parenting classes, whatever you need. Give yourself a chance to be a good mom. Watch your baby grow into a whole, separate, unique person. It is a reward, unto itself. It is an amazing act of sacrifice that grows into an overwhelming love. Absolutely nothing in this world compares to that bond of mother and child.

I was a single mom, struggling to raise my son alone. He’s nearly 30 years old now, and every time I look at him, it takes my breath away. He is absolutely perfect.

Option 2: There are foster agencies that can place the baby until you feel you’re on your feet and can take on the responsibility of raising your child.

Option 3: This one is tricky, but necessary. Where’s the dad? Can he take on the responsibility? He should be given an opportunity to think about it, and then step up. There are a lot of single dads out there, and they’re doing a great job. I know that’s not always the case. A large portion of abortions performed today are because the mothers are scared and alone. The dad bolted at the thought of responsibility and child support payments. They’re not all like that, however, and bringing them into the mix should be one consideration. If he doesn’t step up, or chickens out, refer to your other options.

Option 4: Adoption, adoption, adoption! Every state has agencies that handle adoptions. Every state has childless couples who ache to hold a child in their arms and call him or her their own. Whether it’s a private or open adoption, there is so much win involved, when you tough it out, have the baby, and know that you are blessing a family somewhere, as well as not sentencing the innocent life inside you to death.

And in case it slipped past you, “options” are the same thing as “choice.”

So let’s look at the “pro-choice” crowd and what they offer:

Option 1: Have an abortion.

Option 2: There is no option 2 because you killed the baby with your option 1. It’s gone, and you can’t unring that bell. You can’t change your mind. It’s a final, deadly decision, and you’ll have to live with that knowledge.

So basically, the “pro-choice” crowd offer no actual choice. They give you a dead end, literally, and there’s no way to take it back.

What’s insane is how desperately they try to push this fallacy of being about women’s health, about choice, when all they really want is the right to no responsibility.

President Trump recently signed off on a half billion in support for Planned Parenthood, and while there have been some steps taken to curb abortion and its effects in the U.S., that’s still $500 million being spent to support the death of the preborn.

How much better would it be to have that money go to community health clinics that offer prenatal care, or homes that shelter expectant mothers who are afraid, alone, and need someplace safe to learn parenting skills and otherwise prepare for the birth of their baby?

The ultimate goal is no abortion, and an overturning of Roe v. Wade.

I don’t see that happening any time soon, but that doesn’t mean we give up the fight.

Until that time, it would be great if the other side could at least be honest about which camp is actually “pro-choice,” because, obviously, it’s not them.

    As too this group and their mindset to destroy the future of our nation, they are not the first to be so murderous…and they even build modern day shines for their sacrifices…

    35 They have built pagan shrines to Baal in the valley of Ben-Hinnom, and there they sacrifice their sons and daughters to Molech. I have never commanded such a horrible deed; it never even crossed my mind to command such a thing. What an incredible evil, causing Judah to sin so greatly!

    Jeremiah 32

    Their sin is upon our nation …My God have mercy on us …

    May we turn from this evil that has been put upon our nation…

    How can one side be about choice when not all options are available? Liberals are not outlawed from adoption. There are no liberal activist groups making videos in adoption centers trying to get them shut down. How can we have a serious talk about abortion, when one side does nothing but lie and twist the truth? There is nothing in this post that is honest. I would humbly suggest if you truly wish to have honest conversations, they must start with oneself.

  • IllinoisPatriot

    Keep twisting the truth. This post was nothing but honest truth.

    What need is there for liberals to try to shut down adoption centers if all he babies to be adopted are dead – killed in the womb ?

    Your post conveniently forgets ( or ignores ) that liberals ARE trying to shut down adoption centers – but only the effective ones. The religious-based ones that refuse to support the queer-sexuals that show up and want a baby to brainwash for the next generation. The queer-sexuals cannot have kids of their own and cannot adopt from Planned Parenthood centers, so go looking for the helpless children from ( mostly religious-based ) adoption centers – then try to shut down the centers if they don’t get their way claiming “sexual harrassment”.

    Your post is the only one twisting facts here.

  • ThankGodI’mdying

    Explain to me in your warped view point how asking people to allow more adoptions is trying to shut them down? I am really curious at what kind of mental gymnastics you have to put yourself through to get that. I mean wow, people who are looking to adopt want to close adoption centers? You don’t even realize how stupid that sounds do you? And no I didn’t forget them, in fact, same sex couple on the left are some of the biggest supporters of adoption there are. Here’s a fact for you. Gay and lesbian couples are raising 4% of adopted children in America.

    It sure would be nice if people who claim to be Christian would stop lying. I guess even non-Trumpers can’t tell the truth.

  • Marla Hughes

    The worst mistake RedState made was letting you go. I check my mailbox just to see if you’ve written a new post.

  • GotMyLoveGlassesOn

    Thank you, Marla.

  • IllinoisPatriot

    Sure. The news is full of gays and lesbians attempting to shut down religious-affiliated adoption centers. Whenever they succeed, they only deny more children access to homes where they can get loving parents.

    The gays / lesbians are required to be served by state-run adoption centers, but those centers often are less thorough, less efficient, and less effective than the religious-affiliated centers – also fewer in number with less resources and poorer-quality workers. My sister is in DCFS and she is full of stories about how there are never enough state-approved foster families to house or adopt children she removes from homes. Perhaps the gays are not able to get to the head of the line in state lists of parents so they attempt to destroy the “competition” (religious 2-parent, male-female families that have proven to be healthier homes for kids time and time again) ?

    I reject your pro-gay propaganda where kids are concerned. They deserve better than to be raised in a home where sexual perversion is considered “normal” and where child sexual abuse is statistically orders of magnitude more likely to be present than in traditional-marriage homes.

  • ThankGodI’mdying

    None of what you said is statistically true. Not one word. It always makes me laugh how religious people are always the most easily misled. You want to ensure your child is abused, just go to a church.

  • IllinoisPatriot

    YOU can keep ignoring the horror stories posted by children raised in gay households, but others don’t.
    I also read the recent report on the DNA study (mitichondrial DNA) that found that 90% of species spontaneously cam into existence around 90,000 years ago – a direct refutation of Darwinism and very consistent with creationism.

    Too bad for you when even science is against you.

    I guess about all you have left is emotional rants and insults – some of which you’ve already begun employing here.

    Too bad for you… Too funny to me….
