Ark Times Blogger argues that her abortion is her business because it is her body (includes film ABORTION OF THE HUMAN RACE)

Many liberals actually truly do argue for abortion rights over human rights. Prochoice advocate Elizabeth Williams came out and said that on 1-23-13 in her article on Salon. We hear reasons for abortion such as poverty,and  child abuse,  but why not consider adoption? Instead, the political left will stop at nothing to push the pro-abortion agenda. Why not stop and take an honest look at when life begins for the unborn child and when she begins to feel pain?

Dr. Francis Schaeffer: Whatever Happened to the Human Race Episode 1 ABORTION

_________________

Great  quotes from “Whatever happened to the human race?”  by Francis Schaeffer and Dr. C. Everett Koop (from the shelter website):.

Summary


Francis Schaeffer and, former Surgeon General, C. Everette Koop deal directly with the devaluing of human life and its results in our society. It did not take place in a vacuum. It is a direct result of a worldview that has rejected the doctrine of man being created in the image of God. Man as a product of the impersonal, plus time and chance has no sufficient basis for worth.

If man is not made in the image of God, nothing then stands in the way of inhumanity. There is no good reason why mankind should be perceived as special. Human life is cheapened. We can see this in many of the major issues being debated in our society today: abortion, infanticide, euthanasia, the increase of child abuse and violence of all kinds, pornography (and its particular kinds of violence as evidenced in sadomasochism), the routine torture of political prisoners in many parts of the world, the crime explosion, and the random violence which surrounds us.
(Francis A. Schaeffer and C. Everette Koop, Whatever Happened to the Human Race?, Ch. 1)

Max Brantley of the Arkansas Times Blog reprinted a story of a 38 year old later telling his story. She got an abortion when she was 23 for just selfish reasons. The lady identified herself as a Christian.

This prompted the lady using the username “BluesYouCanUse” to write:

Some 25 years ago, I found out I was pregnant with our third child. My husband was much older than me; I was 34 at the time. I had a third-grader and a toddler. I worked in a demanding job, and was the primary breadwinner for the family. We contemplated abortion. My husband told me he’d support my decision, whatever it was. I chose to have my baby, and I’m grateful I did (though I damn surely had my tubes tied afterward).

That said — the important thing was that it was MY decision. Not my husband’s. Not my legislator’s. Not my doctor’s. Not my pastor’s. Not my neighbors nor my friends nor my employers. I did, in fact, feel like it was not the right thing for me to do. I would never presume to decide for another woman if it were or were not the right thing for HER to do.

I’ve also lost a child to miscarriage at 11 weeks. I cannot testify as to when “life begins,” but I can tell you that that fetus did not, to me, feel like a person. A potential person, perhaps, but not a person. Not a life. Not an individual. Yes, I know the scriptures that pro-life advocates quote in support of their position. I might feel a bit more inclined toward their position if they were as prone to, at the same time, obey scriptures just a few pages away which admonish them to feed the hungry, clothe the naked, care for the sick and the widowed and the orphans, and give to the poor. I’m also cognizant that the main pro-life argument comes from Paul, who was decidedly on the misogynistic side.

We have a lot more problems in our state than the tiny percentage of women who terminate unwanted pregnancies. Up to and including the problems that lead to a lot of those pregnancies. I wish our legislature were as interested in those issues.

I replied:

Bluesyoucanuse, you obviously think that it was your decision and not your husband’s since a “34 year old woman” has a right to her own body. I AGREE WITH YOU THAT A 34 YEAR OLD WOMAN HAS A RIGHT TO HER OWN BODY!!!! By the way a 20 year old woman has a right to her own body and a 15 year old woman has a right to her own body and a 10 year old woman has a right to her own body and a 2 year old woman has a right to her own body and a 1 day old woman has a right to her own body and an unborn woman that has been in the womb for 8 months has a right to her own body and an unborn woman that has been in the womb for 5 months has a right to her own body and an unborn woman that has been in the womb for 1 month has a right to her own body and so on.
Therefore, when you choose abortion then you are killing your child which by the way you say you were glad that you had. Isn’t it great that your child has brought you so much joy in your life and how could imagine life without him or her?

“The battle to feed all of humanity is over. In the 1970s hundreds of millions of people will starve to death.”

That was Paul Ehrlich’s prediction in 1968. He was wrong then, and he’s still wrong now, as he touts his new paper warning that a cocktail of population growth, global warming, and starvation will lead to worldwide collapse of civilization unless severe measures are taken to reduce population around the globe. Ehrlich is a Stanford professor and the author of the 1968 book The Population Bomb.

Only the dates have changed in his predictions from his original book. The new paper, published by London’s Royal Society on January 9, warns of imminent mass death from calamities such as “sea-level rise, crop failures and violent storms”—yet the author says reducing the population is the key to preventing this population reduction.

Needless to say, his earlier predictions did not come true. But now he is back in the news for his latest doomsday prophecy, and more importantly, his proposed cure: We must “reduce the human population size” through providing “all sexually active human beings with modern contraception and backup abortion”— at taxpayer expense.

Much like his original predictions, the media are taking Ehrlich seriously. The Huffington Post frames his proposal for worldwide birth control and abortion as “timely”:

Wondering how to save the world? A Stanford University husband and wife team of population biologists has a suggestion: Empower women everywhere. Pretty revolutionary stuff, eh? According to Anne Ehrlich, senior research scientist, and Paul Ehrlich, Bing Professor of Population Studies and senior fellow at the Woods Institute for the Environment, giving women more power means lower population growth, which means less stress on resources. In light of the fact that we’re approaching a global population of 9 billion, their recommendations seem quite timely.

Now NBC and even Forbes have been giving Ehrlich coverage.

“Nobody, in my view, has the right to have 12 children or even three unless the second pregnancy is twins,” Ehrlich said in an interview with The Raw Story, a left-leaning website.

This is the same Paul Ehrlich who, with his colleagues (including John Holdren, who now works as President Obama’s science and technology advisor), lost a widely publicized bet with the late free-market economist and author Julian Simon.

Simon was skeptical of The Population Bomb’s predictions that world starvation and resource shortages would doom mankind in the ’70s and ’80s. Confident that market-driven technological advances would increase the number of resources available through efficiency and new finds faster than humans could consume them, he challenged Ehrlich to a wager: Pick any five resources over any period of time longer than a year, and they will be cheaper at the end of the period than at the beginning.

In 1980, Ehrlich picked chromium, copper, nickel, tin, and tungsten and bet they would cost more at the end of the decade. According to Wired magazine, “Between 1980 and 1990, the world’s population grew by more than 800 million, the largest increase in one decade in all of history. But by September 1990, without a single exception, the price of each of Ehrlich’s selected metals had fallen, and in some cases had dropped through the floor.”

But that does not matter to Ehrlich, who now contends, “[I]t’s crystal clear if we keep the populations of the rich growing, then the poor aren’t going to have a chance, and eventually, the descendants of the rich aren’t going to have a chance.”

As hundreds of thousands of pro-life activists remember the anniversary of Roe v. Wade and the 55 million babies aborted in the United States, it is unbelievably sad that people are joining Ehrlich’s chorus. Earlier this week, the famed British documentarian Sir David Attenborough launched into the following tirade:

We are a plague on the Earth. It’s coming home to roost over the next 50 years or so. It’s not just climate change; it’s sheer space, places to grow food for this enormous horde. Either we limit our population growth or the natural world will do it for us…

Little does it matter to people like Ehrlich and Attenborough that population control has usually been deeply rooted in eugenics, a science attempting to reduce “undesirable” populations, as Daniel Patrick Moloney has documented.

Nor does it seem to matter that attempts at population control have only resulted in outcomes such as China’s oppressive and coercive one-child policy, which, coupled with a cultural preference for boys, is not only decimating the country’s demographics, but causing the sex-selective abortion of millions of baby girls.

Fortunately, pro-life advocates succeeded yesterday in halting the Obama Administration’s attempt to include abortion in the list of rights protected by the United Nations. This week, we can hope they will continue to make progress toward protecting lives in the United States.
