America has been the Shining City on the Hill because she espoused those twin virtues of liberty and moral integrity, shining brighter the more we defended those unable to defend themselves.
The assault on our national character took a giant offensive drive with Roe v. Wade: SCOTUS, with no reliance on precedence or sound jurisprudence, ruled that a woman’s convenience out-weighed the right to life of her unborn child.
With one careless ruling, America commenced aborting babies.
Far from the Leftists’ mantra, “Safe and Rare,” abortions were not safe to mother nor child, and were less and less rare. Over 56 million unborn children “terminated” since 1973 is not rare: that is an infanticide of Hitlerian proportions.
Each year since 1973 has brought new, grisly abortion methods and later term procedures.
Case in point: the infamous “Partial Birth Abortion” method.
At first, most Americans shook their head in disbelief, and wondered if the rumors were true. Surely no doctor, trained to “First do no harm,” could ever perform such an evil procedure?
Those Lefty Feminists touted partial birth abortion as necessary to save women’s lives.
partial-birth abortion is never medically necessary to protect a mother’s health or her future fertility. On the contrary, this procedure can pose a significant threat to both.
But with time, we became distracted with other facts of daily life, and ignored the silent, legal murder of millions of pre-born babies.
America awakened a few years ago, as the horrors of abortionist Kermit Gosnell (I refuse to refer to him as doctor) made a few headlines. Main Stream Media dragged their feet on the Gosnell story: it might have been news, but it countermanded their devout, Secular Humanist Theology, and thus, could not possibly be front page news.
Now, this past week, another small headline of tremendous import came to my attention, ”Nation’s First Birthing Center/Abortion Clinic Opens in Buffalo. This Is Huge.”
It’s a step forward in the necessary integration of abortion into other forms of OB-GYN care: Feministing reports that the nation’s first-ever birthing center/abortion clinic has opened in Buffalo, N.Y. The clinic, run by Dr. Katharine Morrison, offers a traditional slate of gynecological services, including abortion up to 22 weeks, under the name Buffalo WomenServices.
But they also have a freestanding birthing center called the Birthing Center of Buffalo, where women who want a nonhospital birthing experience can go while having the benefit of being attended by a certified nurse midwife and an OB-GYN who has admitting privileges at the local hospital in case of complications.
Notice the term “forward”? Is Ms. Marcotte channeling Obama?
