Corrupted Women Take the Stage at DNC: Abortion is Not a Woman’s Prize

at Catholic Online

The Democratic National Convention will be featuring their favorite female “stars” this week. Cecile Richards, Nancy Keenan, Sandra Fluke, Kathleen Sebelius, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, and yes, Michelle Obama. They will be used to highlight this administration’s “commitment to women’s rights and health.” They will stand front and center as advocates of the only man who really understands them or cares about their needs. They’ll be hailed by the media as the true American woman.

Well, I can’t tiptoe around the truth. I say with as much kindness as possible that they are corrupt. They are corrupt because they have united themselves with the ultimate corruption and made it their prized possession.

Abortion is nothing new or modern, but only in our modern age has it been elevated to the status of a “right” and sold as a necessary tool of liberation for women. Only we, of all of civilization’s women, have cemented into our law the expectation that women must be allowed to kill their own sons and daughters. We’ve befriended something insidious.

As Blessed Teresa of Calcutta warned us, “If a mother can kill her own baby, what is left but for me to kill you and you to kill me?” There is no further line to be crossed once we have severed what should be the inviolate bond between mother and child. Now there is violence in the sacred space that should be — needs to be — the most protected habitat in the universe.

Go back to the Garden of Eden for a moment. Forget the nonsense of Eve being the “weaker sex”, or more easily deceived. You think that’s why Satan picked her to go after first? I say baloney. Satan is no fool. He did not go after Eve first because he thought she’d be an easy target. She was the chief target, the greatest threat. He wanted to destroy the human person, and the most sure-fire way to achieve that, not just with those first two, but with every human being til the end of time, was to cripple the foundation. Eve was the foundation.

Satan went after the strongest link in the chain of all of humankind — Eve — the mother of all the living. God had given her something He did not give Adam. Only with Eve did He share His glorious ability to create new life. The strength of the human race lies with those who are the life-givers; therefore, the best way to sustain continuous destruction and evil amid the human race is to corrupt the life-givers. Eve’s downfall meant the poisonous seed was planted permanently in the soil from which every other human soul would come.

It was efficient, tidy, genius, and impossible to undo without Divine intervention. Once that was accomplished, Adam was easy. (The Redemption would come through another woman. As the human chain was weakened through Eve, it would be strengthened again through Mary and her humble obedience to God.  The early Church fathers call her the “Second Eve.”)

Now our century has seen women (and as a result the men have followed) turn an act of violence into their “birthright”, if you’ll pardon the irony. With all the inherent force that their life-giving nature endows, modern women have turned the womb into enemy territory, and as a result they’re literally laying waste to the human person.

Abortion corrupts a woman in a way it can never corrupt a man. Men are indeed irrevocably harmed by abortion and by the loss of their children. Men suffer deep and lasting wounds, but in different ways and at a different level than women. Abortion strikes clear to the core of a woman because a woman’s God-given nature is to create, sustain, nurture, and protect new life. Whether a woman ever gives birth is irrelevant. It is still a woman’s essential make-up to bring forth new life into the world. God designed us that way.

When the nature that gives life and creates new life with the help of God turns on herself, comes to despise herself enough to do violence to herself and her own child, the corruption is unleashed.

A Legacy of Death

We are seeing that complete corruption take center stage as the premiere example of what “womanhood” now means in America. The women being presented as models of success, intelligence, talent, and accomplishment are all women who glory in the mass slaughter of babies in the womb. They celebrate the blood of innocent children as proof of their liberation and progress. They demand the continued “freedom” to kill the child in the womb at will, without restriction, without question, and without any moral quandary. Oh, and subsidized by you and me.

They cheerfully embrace with both arms a legacy of death and a continuing promise of more death. They are as blind and corrupt and lost as a woman can be.

Tuesday night HHS Secretary Katheen Sebelius said one thing I have to agree with. She said this November, our choice is “between a nation whose politics play on our worst fears and a nation whose laws reflect the best of our values.”

I’m so sick of the cowardice and dishonesty of people like Sebelius and after tonight, the entire Democrat party. If you’re going to fight for something, then by God, say what it is you’re fighting for. Say it out loud and say it directly. Quit the code-speak. Get up on that stage and say, “The best of our values in America means ensuring that killing a baby in the womb is legal, without restriction, without exception, until the moment of delivery. And it means the taxpayers must pay for this child-killing whether they like it or not.”

Sebelius is right that it really is a choice about what we value in America, and what we defend. Right now, America is a nation that does not defend her most vulnerable citizens. Right now, America is a nation that prides itself on making womb executions “safe, legal, and”… whoops, I forgot — they don’t want them to be “rare” anymore.

Right now America is a nation that dehumanizes the child in the womb in order to destroy that child. Today America is a nation that spends billions of dollars killing tiny babies and celebrates it as enlightened morality. We are a nation where a baby who survives an abortion attempt can still be left to die and even actively killed. Those are Obama’s values. Those are the values of America today, based on our laws.

So get up on that convention stage and admit it. Stop talking about reproductive rights, and choices, and family planning, and women’s health, and stake your abortion claim in plain language. Get up there and admit that the only woman Obama considers legitimate is a woman who thinks it’s a good and necessary thing to kill the child in the womb. Get up there, all of you and admit that the only women in America who should matter at all are the ones who support unfettered abortion on demand at taxpayer expense. I dare you.

You Don’t Speak for Me

It is unspeakably infuriating as a woman to watch Obama and his party of death present the pro-abortion woman as the ideal American woman; as the only acceptable American woman; as the representation of all American women. I’ve got news for you. Your idea of womanhood is utterly repulsive and corrupt. Your idea of freedom and progress for women is utterly grotesque. You do not speak for me, and you certainly do not represent anything that I value.

The current values and laws of America are also repulsive to me. It is shameful that the nation that was birthed on the divine idea that all men are created equal and endowed by their Creator with the unalienable right to Life is now a nation that greedily devours its own young like the most perverse monster.

Only cowards and tyrants enact laws to permit a helpless child to be killed at will because an adult “chooses.” Only cowards and tyrants hide their violence behind euphemisms and sophistry, and pander to “women’s rights”, cloaked in the rhetoric of “health care.”

Men and women of honor protect their children, born and unborn. Men and women of honor give their lives for their children — they do not take their child’s life for their own. Men and women of honor make sacrifices for their children — they do not make sacrifices of their children.

This election is indeed about choices and about American values. How much longer will America remain a nation that values the “right” to kill the child in the womb? How much longer will America deny the humanity of that child?

We ask, rightly so, how the Holocaust could have happened during WWII. How is it possible that such mass murder could take place, such evil show itself and yet people did nothing to stop it?

How is it that over a million American babies are killed every year and yet not only do we not stop it, we campaign and legislate its protected status as a “right”??

The Official Party of Abortion

Nancy Keenan of NARAL said in her speech that she and her cohorts are proud that the Democratic party believes “women have the right to choose a safe, legal abortion with dignity…” The abortion industry believes there is dignity is tearing a child from the womb. They believe it is dignified to kill a child. That, folks, is the definition of corruption.

Sebelius ended her speech by saying that Obama “is a leader with uncommon compassion and courage…” Yes, this is the man who believes it is an unreasonable burden on a woman’s original decision to have a second physician come and see that the baby who survived the attempt on his/her life is actually cared for and not discarded like trash or finished off. How very compassionate is infanticide!

The new platform embraced by the Democratic party now endorses “safe and legal abortion, regardless of ability to pay.” The values of the Democratic party and Obama mean that baby-killing must be “safe”, legal and paid for using taxpayer dollars. Sick and tyrannical is the government that considers killing a defenseless baby something “safe” and insists on subsidizing the slaughter! This is the America and the “American values” that Obama and his gaggle of corrupt women want to perpetuate and then export around the world.

I asked once before, and I’ll ask again now: Women of virtue, where are you? There is not another second to lose. RISE. The foundation of our society must be rebuilt. Ladies, it starts with us. When the womb and the child within are sacred once again, only then will our nation be restored.

Women Star in the President’s Political Theater: Who’s Really Getting Played?

at Catholic Online

After Sandra Fluke’s testimony before Congress last week, two things became clear: 1) This controversy is political theater if I ever saw it, and 2) modern, secular “feminism” makes women stupid.

With a pen stroke and a press conference, President Obama used women to initiate a war on Religious freedom and with the media lapdogs panting at his heels, he made sure the Republicans, and especially the Catholic Church, were painted as misogynist zealots.

Ms. Fluke has become the latest player in a drama that President Obama has manufactured and fueled for his own political gain. Fluke, the Georgetown law student who’s actually an activist for Reproductive Justice, joined Nancy Pelosi, Kathleen Sebelius, Barbara Boxer, Cecile Richards (Planned Parenthood), Nancy Keenan (NARAL), and scores of other Congressional leaders and political activists who are bemoaning the trials of life without free birth control pills. With the President leading this contrived and fraudulent battle over “women’s health”, these so-called feminists have pinned women’s entire well-being to a package of pills and reduced women to just vaginas and uteruses.

Fluke, who was portrayed as a 23 year-old co-ed, is actually 30 years old and by her own admission chose to attend Georgetown precisely so she could battle their insurance policy since it does not cover contraceptives. What a handy witness she turned out to be last week on behalf of Obama’s contraception mandate. So important was she to Obama’s theater show that he personally called her to apologize for things Rush Limbaugh said on his program concerning her testimony.

Fluke testified that she and her classmates have to spend $3,000 during their time at Georgetown on contraception, and it’s simply an unbearable financial burden for them. If they paid top-dollar for birth control pills, that would be about $600 a year; $1,800 for three years. A box of condoms ranges from about $4.00 to $15.00. That’s maybe another $100 a year, but still nowhere close to $3,000.

To put this in perspective, I can sponsor two children through World Vision for less than $100 a month. That money actually helps feed, clothe and educate a child, and improve the lot of her community as well. So you can feed, clothe and shelter a child in a poverty-stricken country, or you can subsidize an Ivy-league college student’s sex life by buying her birth control.

To give you another perspective, consider what’s happening to active-duty military families and veteran retirees. Active-duty families will soon see their prescription costs increase while their access to civilian pharmacies shrinks. Military retirees are going to see their health insurance premiums skyrocket very soon, as Obamacare tries to force them off Tricare and onto one of the government exchange programs instead.

So while active-duty military families are paying more for all their prescriptions — medicines needed for actual illnesses — Ivy-league college co-eds simply MUST be provided with free birth control.

Meanwhile, unionized civilians health care benefits will be untouched. No additional costs for them, no sir. Protect union workers; ask military families to sacrifice even more. From whom much is already asked, even more will be required. Is this the new American way?

What Fluke and her peers need is not a legal education but a common sense, moral education. In about 30 minutes, they could all be taught how to manage their fertility without drugs, and their “birth control” would cost them absolutely nothing but self-control and mature decision-making. It’s called personal responsibility. And you know what? It’s very empowering!

In the real world, when you don’t have the money to pay for something you want, you do without it. Contraception is not food and water. It’s not electricity and shelter. It’s not a need at all. If Fluke wants birth control pills, fine, she can have them. She can also pay for them herself. No one is obligated to provide them for her.

This is the epitome of the entitlement society and mentality that we now live in. To insist that government or our employers must subsidize our sexual habits and behavior makes us officially the most selfish, lazy, immature, and embarrassing society America has ever seen.

Not to mention the most hypocritical. We demand the government stay out of our bedrooms while also demanding the government pay for our contraception. These modern “feminists” like Fluke will shout, “My body, my choice” and “stay out of my uterus” and most of all, “the Church has no right to tell me what to do with my body!” But now she is demanding that same government, that same Church must relieve her of the cost and responsibility for her own personal choices and bear the burden themselves.

Is this really the future of young American women? Do they really not have the brains to figure out that if they don’t have promiscuous, premarital sex, they don’t need to worry about paying for contraceptives? As an added bonus, they also won’t have to worry about STD’s and unwanted pregnancy. Why is that simple concept so hard to grasp?

It’s infuriating to me as a woman that this entire controversy is being played as a “war on women” and that this asinine contraceptive mandate is for the sake of “women’s health.” Artificial hormones bring with them serious risks for women and pose a real danger to women’s health. Pumping a woman’s — worse, a young girl’s still-growing body — full of these artificial hormones should not be anyone’s idea of the right way to take care of a woman’s health.

Fertility is not a disease. How insulting to suggest that women require artificial hormones, contraceptive devices, and abortion in order to be happy, healthy, and prosperous.

The language of this mandate and the rhetoric being used to defend it is insidious. Preventing pregnancy is equated with women’s health. Preventing children is equated with women’s well-being. Pregnancy = unhealthy and expensive. No pregnancy = healthy and cost-saving. Children have become the enemy. Children are now threatening, ominous dollar signs that we must strategically avoid.

This is really a mandate against life. What begins with pills in order to prevent pregnancy and save money will eventually become mandated abortions to eliminate children, especially disabled, “imperfect”, medically expensive ones. America is not immune to this progression. We’re submitting to it right now, and modern, secular “feminists” are leading the way.

The “feminists” swear that this is all about protecting women and their choices, blah blah blah. Baloney. The irony they don’t get is this mandate only further puts the responsibility of pregnancy and children totally on women, leaving men with nothing to do but use women for their sexual gratification and then walk away. Train the guys well to make sure their girlfriend is on the Pill so he can get what he wants, and then when the contraceptives fail, she can walk into Planned Parenthood where they’ve been waiting for her and she can get “her problem” taken care of. Teach those young boys now that girls are just vaginas with a pretty face.

Greater access to contraceptives does not prevent unplanned pregnancy.   Just the opposite. If people think they can have worry-free, consequence-free sex, they have more sex more often with more partners. And since contraception fails, more pregnancies result.

Face it; Cecile Richards doesn’t love this mandate because she wants to reduce the number of unplanned pregnancies. She doesn’t want to put herself out of business. She loves this mandate because she knows that it will bring her more business. More promiscuous sexual activity means more STD’s and more pregnancies. And those “unwanted” babies will need to be gotten rid of for the sake of the woman’s future, so Cecile and company will be there holding the doors open to their abortion mills, happily counting their cash.

President Obama has created this contraception brouhaha for the express purpose of getting women in a tizzy before November. He plans to stoke the fire even further at Barnard College in NY, where he just made himself the commencement speaker.

“Word of Mr. Obama’s appearance at Barnard, a 123-year-old women’s college in New York City, comes as the White House and Democrats have seized on Republican attempts to block a requirement for contraception coverage in the new health care law, saying it amounts to a “war on women.”
Democrats believe the issue could be an effective rallying point with women voters in a presidential election year, and the decision to appear at the prestigious women’s school could provide a high-profile forum for the president on that front.”

He called and invited himself, displacing Jill Abramson from the NY Times, who was already scheduled to give the commencement speech.

Whatever else he talks about in his speech, it ought to be alarmingly clear that this President is not interested in freedom.  Barack Obama doesn’t want to be the leader of a free republic. He wants to be King. He wants to be the Sovereign. He doesn’t govern or lead — he simply issues mandates from on-high. So what if our Constitution guarantees the Freedom of Religion? He’s been telling us for years now that it’s really just the “Freedom of worship”, and if it gets in the way of his dictatorial edicts, well, then to hell with it.

C’mon ladies, wake up and stop being used and played for political points. This contraception theater show is insulting and women deserve better.
