‘Pro-choice’ slave masters losing the war

By: Matt Barber

The pro-aborts are losing. They know it, and they hate it.

As LifeNews.com reported in January: “CNN released the results of a new poll showing a majority of  Americans want all or most abortions prohibited – a clear pro-life majority.”

Indeed, the winds of life are blowing free the foul stench of a pro-abortion  culture of death.

This is why President Obama and his fellow pro-abort zealot, HHS Secretary  Kathleen Sebelius, have unilaterally, arbitrarily and unconstitutionally forced,  through  Obamacare, every taxpaying American citizen to fund “free”  abortion-on-demand.

This draconian overreach is in perfect keeping with the 2012 DNC platform,  which, for the first time, admits without shame: “The Democratic Party strongly  and unequivocally supports Roe v. Wade and a woman’s right to … abortion,  regardless of ability to pay.”

Psalm 8:28 commands: “Defend the weak and the fatherless; uphold the cause of  the poor and the oppressed.”

To be sure, there can be none more oppressed than the tens of millions who,  over four short decades, have been – and will continue to be – slaughtered  within the safe haven of their own mothers’ wombs.

With its 1973 Roe decision, the U.S. Supreme Court put the government’s  official stamp of approval on mass murder. Since then, the battle lines have  been drawn. This is war. They, “pro-choicers,” are the bad guys, while  pro-lifers are the good guys. It really is that simple – that black and white.  It’s good versus evil.

History will reflect as much.

To the unenthusiastic mother, politically motivated abortion violence is  deviously portrayed as an acceptable escape from what may seem a desperate  situation. To the innocent child, it is – without fail and without due process –  execution by torture.

Consider the horrific practice of Partial-Birth Abortion, innocuously tagged  “Intact Dilation and Extraction.” This is a practice so brutal and so needless  that even the liberal American Medical Association (AMA) admitted that it is  never necessary under any circumstances.

During a partial-birth abortion, the abortionist pulls a fully “viable” child  – often kicking and thrashing – feet first from her mother’s womb, leaving only  the top of her head in the birth canal. This is so the abortionist can  technically claim to be performing an abortion, rather than committing  murder.

He then stabs the child through the base of her skull with scissors, piercing  her brain until her kicking and moving about suddenly and violently jerks to a  halt. He then opens the scissors to enlarge the wound, inserts a vacuum tube and  sucks out her brains, thereby collapsing her skull.

Her now limp and lifeless body is then cast away like so much garbage.

Appalling, isn’t it? Infanticide by any objective measure.

So, naturally, Mr. Obama, reasonable fellow that he is, agrees with the AMA,  correct? He and other “pro-choicers” were the first to applaud the high court  when it upheld a ban on this Hitlerian practice, right?


Barack Obama unbelievably called the Court’s decision in Gonzales v. Carhart  part of a concerted effort “to steadily roll back the hard-won rights of  American women.” In so doing, he revealed to the world that leftist support for  abortion “rights” has everything to do with politics and nothing to do with  science or “health care.”

Moreover, consider Mr. Obama’s opposition to the “Born Alive Infant  Protection Act.” It passed both houses of Congress in 2002 with overwhelming  bipartisan support. Born Alive very simply requires that when a baby survives an  attempted abortion – when she is “born alive” – further attempts to kill her  must immediately cease, and steps must be taken to save her life.

Yet, incredibly, this president, while serving in the Illinois Senate,  vehemently opposed the bill’s Illinois twin. He complained that requiring  efforts to save the live victim of a botched abortion is “really designed simply  to burden the original decision of the woman and the physician to induce labor  and perform an abortion.”

Barack Obama’s solution? Finish off the little pest.

So prepare for Obama and other pro-aborts to go utterly berserk now that  Arkansas has passed the Human  Heartbeat Protection Act. It requires that when an abortion is performed at  or after the 12th week, doctors must test for a fetal heartbeat before an  abortion is performed. If a heartbeat is detected, a woman cannot have an  abortion, except in cases of rape, incest, or if a mother’s life is in danger.

This is common-sense stuff. The human heartbeat has long been indisputable  proof of life both within and without the womb.

Still, and not surprisingly, even as the state legislature was overriding the  Democratic governor’s veto of the new law – SB 134 – the ACLU and other  pro-abort radicals were vowing to challenge it in court.

Mathews Staver, founder and chairman of Liberty Counsel, has vowed to  preserve it: “If asked, Liberty Counsel will defend this law without  reservation, free of charge for the people of Arkansas, born and unborn,” he  said.

“In keeping with medical advances, history and common sense, the Arkansas  legislature has said that the life of a 12-week-old unborn child with a  detectable heartbeat is protected under the law.”

And well it should be. SB 134 is just the beginning. Brave lawmakers in  Arkansas have provided the template for other states to follow.

They’re on the right side of history.

Indeed, history has a way of repeating itself. The Roe decision was not the  first time the U.S. Supreme Court has so disgraced our nation. Roe v. Wade  represents the twin bookend to the Court’s shameful 1857 Dred Scott  decision.

In Dred Scott the Court absurdly held that African-American slaves, even if  emancipated, were not fully persons and therefore could never be considered U.S.  citizens. Likewise, Roe v. Wade ruled that children in gestation are not fully  persons and are therefore not entitled to their most basic civil right:  life.

As with Dred Scott, Roe’s fate, I believe, is certain. It’s just a matter of  time. History will eventually judge Roe v. Wade every bit as harshly as Dred  Scott.

Call yourself “pro-choice”? Shame on you. You’re no better than a modern-day  slave master. Dump the garbage and join the right side of history.

There’s plenty of room over here.
