The Real Cost of Abortion

I hate abortion. Of course, the wanton destruction of an innocent human being is worthy of one’s disapprobation. The ripple effect is also worthy of one’s disapproval. 55 million abortions equals how many hugs never given? How many laughs never heard? How many smiles never seen? How many “I love you”‘s will never be spoken? Abortion affects more than just the child. It equals how many hearts never to be made whole? How many tears will never be dried? How many grandparents will never know the joy of their grandchildren? How many fathers will never know the transforming power of family? How many mothers will never know the depths of a mother’s love? Abortion costs all of us. How many people will never work and pay into your social security? How many inventions will never happen? How many diseases will not be cured in your lifetime? How many students never darkened a classroom? How many bicycles were never built? How many game systems were never sold? How many clothes were never made? How much food was never grown? How many cars did Detriot never sale? How much wealth was never created? Abortion is a crime against the conscience of a nation. It is a crime against the humanity of each soul. Let’s hug our children and vow to stop aborting others. Let’s love those who are in distress and make choosing life easier than choosing death. We can do better than abortion. Stop Abortion! Save the conscience of America. 41 years of widespread abortions is 41 years too many.

  1. Thank you for a wonderful article, David. It brought tears to my eyes . You spoke from your heart and from everyone else’s who believes that abortion is a scourge on our country and a crime against humanity.

  2. Eventually, the same rationalizations will be used to justify genocide. The founder of Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger, was a proponent of eugenics- to rid society of the ‘unproductive.’ Just like Hitler, Stalin and Mao (although they used more efficient means, like gas, bullets and starvation).

    As to abortion (of course, for the good of the family), Sanger wrote;

    “The most merciful thing that a large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.” (From “Women and the New Race.” Eugenics Publ. Co., 1920).

    We are on a dangerous vector.

  3. This poetic expression of the value of life reminds us that it is important that we keep speaking up and out. It is important to teach and live the Gospel of Life everyday through our example. That is how we will prevent the coming genocide.

  4. Making abortion criminal again will not end abortion. It will create lots more criminals.

    The fact that you pursue a legal remedy for a moral ill is the reason you will never succeed. Moral arguments, unfortunately, don’t convince people not to abort, so you seek legal solutions. Those won’t convince people not to abort, either, but that doesn’t seem to be your actual concern.

    If you want to end abortion, stop pretending that making it illegal will end it. It will not.

  5. Israel is now among the few countries which provide government-funded abortions, for any reason:

    http://www.timesofisrael.com/israels-abortion-law-now-among-worlds-most-liberal/

    “With the newly amended health care package, however, funding will now be available for more than 6,000 additional women seeking to terminate their pregnancies, at the cost at some NIS 16 million ($4.6 million). No medical reason for the abortion is required.”

    Of course, Israel can afford to provide government-funded abortions because the United States will be providing 3.1 billion dollars in aid to them in 2014.

  6. Nobody on January 23, 2014 at 12:42 said: “Making abortion criminal again will not end abortion. It will create lots more criminals. The fact that you pursue a legal remedy for a moral ill is the reason you will never succeed.”

    But as soon as we apply your argument to any other topic, the absurdity of your argument immediately appears.

    Substitute “rape” for abortion.

    YOUR ARGUMENT BECOMES: “Making rape criminal will not end rape. It will create lots more criminals. The fact that you pursue a legal remedy for a moral ill is the reason you will never succeed.”

    Your reasoning does not work. The only purpose of offering such a twisted argument is to achieve the result of murdering helpless babies, not to follow any rational analysis or philosophy.

  7. YOUR ARGUMENT BECOMES: “Making discrimination against gays criminal will not end it. It will create lots more criminals. The fact that you pursue a legal remedy for a moral ill is the reason you will never succeed.”

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    YOUR ARGUMENT BECOMES: “Making polluting criminal will not end pollution. It will create lots more criminals. The fact that you pursue a legal remedy for a moral ill is the reason you will never succeed.”

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    YOUR ARGUMENT BECOMES: “Making gun ownership criminal will not end gun ownership. It will create lots more criminals. The fact that you pursue a legal remedy for a moral ill is the reason you will never succeed.”

  8. It is a crime against the humanity of each soul.

    Indeed.

    People that have seared their souls by incorporating legalized violence in their lives will continue to effect the body politic, Right and Left.

    It seems that it’s been the nature of the American Empire to begin to legalize theft, murder and violence on a global scale while the abortion of the least of these for the sake of economic benefits continues within. The bread and circuses and “the economy” that has been built on the bodies of the least of these is decaying, as future generations are already beginning to sense. So look for more demagogues to emerge in the oligarchy to promise people even more false profits?

  9. Of course, Israel can afford to provide government-funded abortions because the United States will be providing 3.1 billion dollars in aid to them in 2014.

    I.e. a state generally based on a mythology* of human sacrifice/holocaust allowing people to transcend the rule of law being supported by another that denied its founding principles in the rule of law as well.

    I wonder if JudeoChristians will ever realize that there’s a reason that Jesus condemned Talmudic tribalists. It’s not as if some Samaritans weren’t terrorists and a threat to the tribe just like modern terrorists, yet He still told the parable of a Good Samaritan anyway.

    *Like most mythologies it’s based on reality or laid over it. But the sacred six million symbolism of the “sacrifice” made by fire that created a right of return to Zion makes a mockery of dead Jews that didn’t necessarily want to be part of the political cult of Zionism. It’s not as if they all wanted to have their deaths at the hands of racist nationalists incorporated in the tribal ideologies of different nationalists or racists of a different sort.

  10. The fact that you pursue a legal remedy for a moral ill is the reason you will never succeed.

    This is generally true, but not completely. It may be possible that a prohibition against the ‘safety net’ of abortion might instill a greater sense of urgency as to the use of birth control.

    As an aside, the abortion issue should be left to the states. It is absurd to conclude that abortion is a 14th Amendment “right.”

  11. Nitpicker, if something is illegal, it won’t happen. That’s what liberals tell us on every other topic, right?

  12. Abortion will never go away completely, although we would welcome that. But the left wants absolutely no restrictions on abortion. That was made clear when a self-serving Texas state senator, Wendy Davis whom the folks at Del Lib would like to see as that Clinton woman’s running mate, filibustered protective amendments to the state’s abortion law. They eventually passed anyway. They require that their “clinics” ( a better word is “mills”) have to be near accredited hospitals and that their physicians have admitting privileges there. But preventing the passage of these amendments was never Davis’ intent when she filibustered. Instead, she did it to gain national attention, especially of the O regime, and now has the gall to run for governor this year. She also knows she has no chance in Texas, especially since her many lies to date have been made public and she has no credibility. She’ll save the several million dollars in contributions from various leftist PACs she received after the filibuster to run for national office in 2016. She’s perfect for the Democrats.

  13. Jon, I never said that. Arguing with imaginary people who say imaginary things is easy.

    How about you answer the question – how long do you want to lock them up?

    Are the words in that question too hard for you?

  14. Still trying to get Jon to directly answer a specific question? Talk about rolling a stone uphill! I have to give you perseverance points. Still, thus far Jon has just as many perseverance points in avoiding answering specific questions. I would propose asking him how much 1+1 is and then you would be able to declare victory, but I’m afraid his answer might be something out of the Old Testament. Regardless, kudos for staying the course.

  15. Okay, how long do you want to lock up women who have abortions. State your number.

    In states where abortion is illegal, you need only pull the medical license of the abortion provider. So the number is ‘0.’

  16. Nitpicker on January 25, 2014 at 09:10 said: “Jon, I never said that.”

    Sure you did. You just don’t like having the consequences of what you are arguing pointed out.

    Your arguments are flawed. And when the flaws are pointed out, you don’t like it. So you try to argue “I didn’t say that.” But you did say that. Your arguments simply include the flaws.

    Nitpicker on January 25, 2014 at 09:10 said: “How about you answer the question – how long do you want to lock them up?”

    No one has ever suggested punishing a mother for having an illegal abortion.

    Surely you knew that, right?

    So why did you ask the question?

    WHY did you ask that question, knowing that nobody has ever suggested punishing the mother?

  17. No, Jon, you are apparently unable to distinguish between what one person said and what another person said. You imagine that those you disagree with are simply different components of an undifferentiated whole.

    So, Rick, a woman who is a doctor or nurse, and who performs an abortion on herself is not penalized at all under your scheme – is that correct?

    And, Jon, you understand forms of criminal liability such as accomplice liability and conspiracy, right?

  18. So, Rick, a woman who is a doctor or nurse, and who performs an abortion on herself is not penalized at all under your scheme – is that correct?

    Yes. Nor will a doctor be prosecuted when, during the performance of an abortion, the child is killed by a wayward meteorite.

  19. Nitpicker on January 26, 2014 at 10:44 said: ” And, Jon, you understand forms of criminal liability such as accomplice liability and conspiracy, right?”

    I understand that legislatures design the laws, not courts, especially not the US Supreme Court.

    I will give you a cookie, Nitpicker, if you can find any recognized conservative (that is, someone with a real following or elected to office) who has ever advocated punishing a woman for having an abortion.

    Think marijuana: There are no people in prison for possessing marijuana. NONE. There are people in jail for possessing marijuana WITH THE INTENT TO DISTRIBUTE. Dealers are in jail, and only after repeated violations and with large quantities.

    In Virginia — a tough-on-crime State with a zero-tolerance attitude — possessing marijuana is practically a traffic ticket. As a Virginia attorney, I can’t make any money defending someone against a marijuana charge, because it is a slap on the wrist only.

    So we go after the DEALERS, not the individual, in many contexts.

    ‘Children of Rape’ For Life

    WATCH THE VIDEO AT THE LINK:

    That being said, it would be difficult for even the most hardened abortion advocate to disregard the views of an individual who was conceived through rape and whose mother chose to carry the pregnancy to term. MRCTV spoke to one such individual at the 2014 March For Life. MRCTV also spoke to a woman who was impregnated by a rapist and decided to go through with the pregnancy.

    If you are standing next to an abortion advocate, please slap them for me. — Jon

  21. The longer I live, the less I care about laws created by criminals (usually just legalized criminality) and politics (usually just the latest manipulations of “the crowd”* by Machiavellian Psychopaths Inc.).

    In reality.. people are spiritual beings, creatures of language and the truth is self evident even in those that seek to profit for themselves from violence against the least of these. People generally either realize truth and have abundant life for the time they’re blessed with it or they deny the truth and it’s as if they’re already half dead anyway. Amazing Photos of Nathan, Miscarried at 14 Weeks, Show Unborn Baby’s Humanity

    But with respect to politics and the eugenic/elitist mentality involving the “shared sacrifices” typical to America’s Masonic/Zionist establishment… it seems to me that Americans could look back on their supposed founding values and try to live up to them or speak for them again. Sort of like the abolitionists did.

    “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, THAT AMONG THESE ARE LIFE…”

    America’s ruling class once signed off on that and forgot to mention everyone they were excluding, so why not hold the current ruling class to our supposed founding values and ideals instead of letting them generally continue to promote and use eugenics? Or promote and use their usual forms of manufactured scarcity to control the peasants and debt slaves that they’re currently working on incorporating in and controlling through Corporations.gov?

    Corporations.gov now: “Free healthcare for all!”

    The fine print: “With sterilization and abortion for as many peasants as possible, especially some races. But here’s some cheap Chinese crap to make you feel better about the way the ruling class is trying to make a killing on you and your family. And here are some anti-depressants from corporations.gov and your oligarchy. More false profits and free healthcare for all!”

    With caring from the Democrats.gov of the sort that they’ve demonstrated throughout their history of support for abortion and eugenics, one can only wonder what a murderous desire to make a killing on the least of these for the sake of money and establishing political Power Inc. would look like.

  22. *Only slightly off topic, this is the sort of thing that anyone for care for the weak and the least of these will come up against: Rule from the Shadows – The Psychology of Power

    I.e… these are the sort of people that can get American women to believe that they’re smoking “torches of freedom,” at least until they get cancer and die later. Or these foundation funded manipulators can get peasants to believe that killing their baby is a good way to profit for themselves and is not searing their conscience or killing part of themselves. Apparently these are also the sort of handlers and manipulators working for the corporations.gov generally financed by a bankstering oligarchy that can get women to work like debt slaves in order to expand the tax base, yet market a denial of mothering if it’s all about their equality and empowerment as women. It even seems clear that manipulators working for the oligarchy can get many women to believe that getting their limbs blown off in wars for banksters has something to do with “equality” and liberty too. Apparently there is no end to using the idea of equality to deceive people to death.

    “Torches of Freedom” was a phrase used to encourage women’s smoking by exploiting women’s aspirations for a better life during the women’s liberation movement in the United States. Cigarettes were described as symbols of emancipation and equality with men. The term was first used by psychoanalyst A. A. Brill when describing the natural desire for women to smoke and was used by Edward Bernays to encourage women to smoke in public despite social taboos. Bernays hired women to march while smoking their “torches of freedom” in the Easter Sunday Parade of 1929 which was a significant moment for fighting social barriers for women smokers. –Wikipedia

    An Ishtar parade…

    All the marketers, manipulators and handlers serving the Almighty Dollar underneath the gaze of Lady Liberty may have more American women believing that pornography is yet another form of liberation and empowerment soon enough. Yet then more women will experience spiritual death and perhaps die physically earlier than they would have otherwise, just like women in the past due to the “Torches of Freedom” and other forms of equality that were marketed to them.

    How much fear there must be for some women for the idea of any absence of “equality” to be that effective in the hands of manipulators. What are they so fearful of when it comes to equality and exactly what are they so desirous of being equal to, I wonder? Do they want to be equal with men that seem to be continually deceived into more wars for false profits for the elite? Do they want to come back limbless from wars based on deceptions to open air war memorials that have been closed by their oligarchy, in “equal” numbers?

    I’m not sure where the modern lust for equality and apparent fear of its absence comes from.

  23. The longer I live, the less I care about laws created by criminals (usually just legalized criminality) and politics…

    I feel the same way. It’s like being part of some bizarre movie.

  24. Comments on the theatrical production of the show from Delaware Liberal:

    How exactly would Republicans use Bill Clinton’s infidelity against Hillary Clinton? How does that look? Would they say she was a-okay with infidelity because, if she wasn’t then she would have divorced him? Would they say she’s sexist and misogynist because she’s married to a man who had an affair? Most likely they would do what they love to do and tell Hillary to sit down and shut up… maybe they could even tell her to go make them a sandwich. …. How would that work? If your husband had an affair, then no women issues for you! If your husband had a drug addiction, then no war on drugs for you! (Joe Scarborough Thinks He’s Found A Way To Shut This Whole Hillary Thing Down)

    Meanwhile, back in reality, the Clintons have long had connections to the criminal bureaucracy and intelligence agencies that use the war on drugs to finance themselves:

    Barry Seal – gunrunner, drug trafficker, and covert C.I.A. operative extraordinaire – is hardly a familiar name in American politics. But nine years after he was murdered in a hail of bullets by Medellin cartel hit men outside a Salvation Army shelter in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, he has come back to haunt the reputations of three American presidents.

    Seal’s legacy includes more than 2,000 newly discovered documents that now verify and quantify much of what previously had been only suspicion, conjecture, and legend. The documents confirm that from 1981 to his brutal death in 1986, Barry Seal carried on one of the most lucrative, extensive, and brazen operations in the history of the international drug trade, and that he did it with the evident complicity, if not collusion, of elements of the United States government, apparently with the acquiescence of Ronald Reagan’s administration, impunity from any subsequent exposure by George Bush’s administration, and under the usually acute political nose of then Arkansas governor Bill Clinton. Crimes of Mena

    Etc.etc. These (BCCI) Bush/Clinton/Obama patterns of hopium and change that never seem to change result from the fact that criminal networks don’t “change” no matter who gets elected.

    Although some are better than others. E.g., it’s to Reagan’s credit that there was an assassination attempt against him by associates of the Bush crime family. In any case, apparently suburban moms want the Clinton crime family back in because Hillary has a vagina and will stop a supposed “war on women.” That’s the marketing. That’s the show. More entertainment on the political stage provided by crime families and the shadow government behind them, as everyone’s wealth is being looted… EQUALLY. They’ll want your retirement next and would pull a Cyprus if they could, equally for all. Just saying.

    And yet people focus on the “war on women” show and don’t look at the reality of crime families like the Bushes and Clintons. Apparently the thinking is: “She has a vagina… well, that settles it then… she must have our best interests as peasants at heart. After all, we’re women and she’s a woman.” Or: “He looks like a cowboy… well, that settles it then.. he must have our best interests at heart just like his dad did.”

  25. Ramble… although in the case of dubya, apparently he was actually dumb enough to believe in his own marketing. So when the dunce left to read the “Pet (scape) Goat” hugged the soldiers that he sent to war instead of investigating 911 and the role of the criminal bureaucracy and the shadow government and the banksters in it… he probably actually meant* it. After all, he was convinced by his advisers that he needed to go with his gut and that he was doing the right thing… sort of like Team America is full of heroes stopping terrists like Osama. That’s what all the CIA and Pentagon supported movies show, anyway.

    *There again, his view of the Boston Boys: “I was concerned that it might be another cons… highly organized plot.” So he might now at least a little more about “conspiracies” than he lets on. Apparently he knows enough not to call it a conspiracy.

    After all, none dare call it a conspiracy. What happened to Reagan when he started criticizing the criminal networks involved (and then stopped) could happen to anyone. It’s the “lone gunman” scenario. Anyway, I can’t believe peasants would actually support the Clintons again based on “war on women” crap. But I guess until they’re forced to pay attention to what’s going on in reality in some way, entertainment will continue to be all that matters to them. Shrug. Here’s to hoping that factions within the criminal networks that rule the world and launder the drug money and all the rest of it don’t have their terrist agents and mercenaries turned again. It’s not happenstance that the Boston boys turned up when the situation with Russia over Syria/Iran was heating up. It’s nothing more than what the “Lets try to train some terrists.” intelligence services that serve the oligarchy have been doing for centuries. It’s just that in a post 911 world Americans are beginning to be caught in the crossfire of their criminal bureaucracies and the political puppets serving the banking families more and more.

    I.e… we’re a long way from avoiding “entangling alliances” now. So as peasants, we’re left to hope that things don’t start getting blown up again and the corporate media saying that the Russians hate gays or Pussy Riot is enough. My standards are low now. Maybe the ruling class in America should send Hillary in to rescue Pussy Riot and bring them back to America, where pussies can riot. It could be framed as a big and gay celebration for peasants by America’s corporate media. Not that they’d actually be any better off or enjoying more wealth and liberty in reality, gay or not. But apparently entertainment is more important to many than reality anyway.

  26. BCCI

    It’s Murder Inc.

    With the diffusion of information and how readily available it all is, there’s no excuse for the American sheeple to celebrate and continue to try to elect those involved in shearing and slaughtering them now.

    How much is entertainment worth?
