Culture of Life

by Whitney Pitcher

Today marks the forty years since the Supreme Court decided Roe v. Wade which legalized abortion. Since then, millions of unborn children have been aborted. In its most recent fiscal year report, Planned Parenthood noted it had aborted 333, 964 unborn babies–a record year. That’s like wiping the city of St. Louis off the map.

When Thomas Jefferson penned the Declaration of Independence, he noted that we were endowed my our Creator with certain inalienable rights–life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Life precludes all the others. If we deny someone that first right, how can they have liberty? How can they purse happiness? Abortion is the ultimate form of prejudice–where personal convenience is pre-judged as more important than another person’s existence and those inalienable rights are denied.

For all the pearl clutching pro-choice women do regarding having men interfering with their “health” care choices, they seem to forget that it was nine men who decided Roe v. Wade. Men are allowed to make “health” care decisions for these pro-choice women, so long as it is convenient for them. Sadly, we live in a world where health care legislation indicates that a twenty-six year old is considered a child for insurance purposes, but baby in her eleventh week in her mother’s womb is not considered a child.

So much of politics is purportedly “for the children”, yet when we deny them the right to life, what does any other legislation matter? In light of the recent ineffably saddening shooting in Newtown, CT, this well done video edit asks President Obama that very question.

Advocating for life is not solely dependent upon court cases and legislation. It’s about a culture where life is valued. This is the culture we want to help create and cultivate. Andrew Breitbart once said that culture is upstream of politics. This does not only apply to those facets of culture like entertainment or sports, but also the lens through which our society sees. Let that lens be life.

Barack Obama Celebrates America’s Culture of Death

The most merciful thing that a family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.
Margaret Sanger (editor). The Woman Rebel, Volume I, Number 1. Reprinted in Woman and the New Race. New York: Brentanos Publishers, 1922.

Birth control must lead ultimately to a cleaner race.
Margaret Sanger. Woman, Morality, and Birth Control. New York: New York Publishing Company, 1922. Page 12.

We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population. and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.
Margaret Sanger’s December 19, 1939 letter to Dr. Clarence Gamble, 255 Adams Street, Milton, Massachusetts. Original source: Sophia Smith Collection, Smith College, North Hampton, Massachusetts. Also described in Linda Gordon’s Woman’s Body, Woman’s Right: A Social History of Birth Control in America. New York: Grossman Publishers, 1976.

Eugenic sterilization is an urgent need … We must prevent multiplication of this bad stock.”
Margaret Sanger, April 1933 Birth Control Review.

Eugenics is … the most adequate and thorough avenue to the solution of racial, political and social problems.

How ironic is it that America’s first black President so gleefully celebrates the culture of death his party created over a century ago, with the stated goal of wiping out the Negro race.

Margret Sanger, the founder of what we now know as Planned Parenthood worked hard to make abortion acceptable to the public at large, all in an attempt to “cleanse” the population of “undesirables.” Sanger, who called blacks “human weeds” is an icon of the left. Winning a Margret Sanger Award is a supposed highlight of one’s career.

She would be appalled at the thought of someone like Barack Obama, the product of a black father and a white mother. 

On Saturday the New York Times wrote this:

President Obama reaffirmed his support for abortion rights on Saturday, the 38th anniversary of the Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade that established a woman’s right to an abortion.

I am committed to protecting this constitutional right,” Mr. Obama said in a statement. “I also remain committed to policies, initiatives, and programs that help prevent unintended pregnancies, support pregnant women and mothers, encourage healthy relationships, and promote adoption.

Mr. Obama, the father of two young daughters, called on Americans to “recommit ourselves more broadly to ensuring that our daughters have the same rights, the same freedoms, and the same opportunities as our sons to fulfill their dreams.”

Actually Roe did no such thing. Rights cannot be “established” by anyone but God. That’s the very premise of the United States Constitution, our supreme law of the land. The Constitution is designed to stop GOVERNMENT from trampling on these God given rights. Nothing more, nothing less. More on that in a minute.

What troubles me about this part of the Times piece is this:

Mr. Obama, the father of two young daughters, called on Americans to “recommit ourselves more broadly to ensuring that our daughters have the same rights, the same freedoms, and the same opportunities as our sons to fulfill their dreams.

When Obama first took office and abortion was the topic, he announced he didn’t want his girls “punished” with a baby if they “made a mistake.” How dark-hearted is that!

It seems that Obama actually believes that having children somehow slows a woman down and ruins their opportunities to fulfill their dreams. Sounds like he is someone who has some serious issues.

He better not tell this to Sarah Palin, a proud mother of five beautiful children. She’s had one of the most successful political careers in recent memory. Mayor, oil and gas regulator, Governor, Commander-in-Chief, best selling author, successful television host, and odds on favorite to be our next President.

Or how about Liz Cheney? She too has five children, and has had a serious foreign policy portfolio for years.Very successful.

Then there is Michelle Bachmann. Michelle is also one of the nation’s top leaders. Not only does she have five children of her own, she and her husband raised twenty-three (23) foster kids! If anyone was going to be “handicapped” by children ….

These are just three examples of happy successful women [out of millions] who weren’t slowed down a bit by having a houseful of kids. 

Children are a blessing. Yeah, they are hard work, but so is everything that matters.

There’s more from the Times:

Mr. Obama said the 1973 Supreme Court ruling “affirms a fundamental principle: that government should not intrude on private family matters.”

Now THAT would be snort-worthy, if it wasn’t so infuriating. Here’s the biggest Big Government proponent since FDR talking about government needing to stay out of “private family matters“!

What does this fool think ObamaCare does? Or how about the First Lady’s championing of controls over the food we eat and the beverages we drink?

We are to the point where government is telling what kind of light bulbs you can buy! Mr Obama, I think the “government should not intrude on private family matters” ship has sailed long ago. You are helping kill the concept of individual Freedom and Liberty.

Abortion is a nasty business, and absolutely nothing to celebrate or be proud of. 10s of millions of babies have been slaughtered since Roe. It’s been particularly hard on the black population. If you’ve never visited the website Black Genocide, you should. It’s a real eye opener.

Roe was bad law, mostly because it usurped states’ rights. The 10th Amendment. Contrary to left wing propaganda, it didn’t “legalize” abortion. Abortion was already legal in most states, with different states having different restrictions. Roe was about privacy. Texas had a law that require the father be notified before an abortion was performed. Not exactly an unreasonable law, and there were exceptions. The Supreme Court “found” a right to privacy that never before existed to strike down the Texas law. 

It should be noted that Norma L McCorvey, Jane Roe, never actually had an abortion, and has become one of the leading voices in trying to have Roe v Wade over turned.

One of the most despicable consequences to come out of Roe has been the rise of Planned Parenthood. Though the left calls these “women’s health clinics” they are nothing more than abortion mills that skirt the law and mass murder for profit. And by mass murder I do mean mass murder.

It’s interesting to note that while an Illinois State Senator Barack Obama, fought against “born alive” legislation that would require doctors to attend to the life of babies who survived botched abortions chose now to celebrate the left’s cult of death.

As you know, a West Philadelphia abortion mill doctor, his wife and eight other suspects are now under arrest following a grand jury investigation. From CBS Philly:

Dr. Kermit Gosnell, 69, faces eight counts of murder in the deaths of a woman following a botched abortion at his office, along with the deaths of seven other babies who, prosecutors allege, were born alive following illegal late-term abortions and then were killed by severing their spinal cords with a pair of scissors.

I am aware that abortion is a hot-button topic,” said District Attorney Seth Williams. “But as district attorney, my job is to carry out the law. A doctor who knowingly and systematically mistreats female patients, to the point that one of them dies in his so-called care, commits murder under the law. A doctor who cuts into the necks severing the spinal cords of living, breathing babies, who would survive with proper medical attention, is committing murder under the law.”

Gosnell is facing charges of murder in the third degree for the death of 41-year-old Karnamaya Mongar. Mrs. Mongar died on November 20, 2009, when she was overdosed with anesthetics prescribed by Gosnell. He is also facing seven murder charges for the deaths of infants who were killed after being born viable and alive during the sixth, seventh, or eighth month of pregnancy. Gosnell is also facing numerous other charges.

Gosnell is suspected of killing hundreds of living babies over the course of his 30-year practice. However, he is not charged because the records do not exist.

DA Williams said Gosnell made approximately $1.8 million in one year alone performing the procedures.

$1.8 million is a year. Evil pays very well it seems.

What does it say about our society that this District Attorney is all but apologizing for arresting this monster who is suspected of murdering in the hundreds. Our society is in real trouble.

The stories coming out of this abortion mill are just heartbreaking. This evil man not only murder living, breathing infants, but at least one adult female as well. I say “at least” because this “doctor” failed to keep records of his slaughter.

The stories are horrific, but it’s worth the effort to take a look at both the Grand Jury’s findings, and the Philly DA’s Final Presentment here and here.

This “doctor” was a monster, laughing and joking as he murdered. Michelle Malkin wrote a very strong column on this entitled: The Philadelphia Horror: How mass murder gets a pass, which is a must read.

Michelle has another strong column today: The March for Life 2011: America’s REAL rally to restore hope and sanity. It too is essential reading.

I know some people will say this monster, “Dr” Kermit Gosnell, is some sort of aberration. Not representative of the abortion mill industry as a whole. They would be wrong. This is all too common, as many investigations have proven.

Life News has just published the first chapter of Abby Johnson’s new book, Unplanned, an exposé on Planned Parenthood. Abby Johnson is the former director of the Planned Parenthood abortion business in Bryan, Texas. She had a change of heart after being asked to assist in an abortion, and has now written a book exposing the entire set up. You can read the first chapter here.

While Obama and his followers celebrate what amounts to nothing less than genocide, they are working hard to remove any all all restrictions to abortion. Using the Orwellian title, the”Freedom of Choice Act” will:

* FOCA will do away with state laws on parental involvement, on partial birth abortion, and on all other protections.

* FOCA will compel taxpayer funding of abortions.

* FOCA will force faith-based hospitals and health care facilities to perform abortions.

That’s right, this death warrant for future babies will force all taxpayers to pay for this mass murder, and will force faith based hospitals to perform this gruesome act of violence. So much for the left’s nonsense about the “separation of church and state“! This will force a lot of hospitals to close, rather than participate in this genocide.

You can help stop this though by joining the fight and signing the petition here.

The legacy that Obama and the left is celebrating is a legacy of death and destruction. A legacy of broken lives and tattered souls. It’s nothing to be proud of.

Sarah Palin, when speaking of abortion, reminds us a people are judged by the way they treat the least among them. If that’s the case, America will be judged quite harshly, and will deserve it.
