Taylor: Why I Back “Birthright”

“ORDINARY EFFORTS FOR EXTRAORDINARY WOMEN” By TAYLOR BROWN  ||  As I sat down to a supper at Villa Tronco with about twenty other volunteers (and a baby!), I realized just how much of an impact organizations like Birthright of Columbia, S.C. (and the broader pro-life movement) are making on the world.  And…


IMG_3667By TAYLOR BROWN  ||  As I sat down to a supper at Villa Tronco with about twenty other volunteers (and a baby!), I realized just how much of an impact organizations like Birthright of Columbia, S.C. (and the broader pro-life movement) are making on the world.  And more importantly how much they’ve done for women who find themselves struggling for support during a time many American women would kill for—motherhood.

These women are often scared, alone, in need of support (financially, emotionally and in terms of essentials like food and shelter), and more.  For some of these desperate women, they may not even know if they’re pregnant and are scared to tell their significant other or friends and family, so they come to us.  They sit with us and talk about their circumstances.  If they get those two lines, a positive confirmation of pregnancy, it could potentially lead to the mother to end the life of her unborn child.

For many other women, though, they open up their hearts and allow us to step in and aid them in the frustrating, difficult, emotional, and painful journey that leads them (or an adoptive family) to hold this delicate new child—for a split second the newest person in the world—to their chests and cradle this now breathing life.

These mothers realize that they are carrying a baby; they’re a mother; they can make life and bring it into the world!  This moment isn’t the culmination of Birthright’s help, though.  Birthright is there for the new mother and her child as they both enter into that hard, trying, expensive, and extremely rewarding experience that is raising a child.

Hank Chardos, the new full-time director of Birthright of Columbia, spoke to me about his organization and what it means to be pro-life, and his message was an answer to those who say:

Pro-choice advocates allege that pro-life is not an accurate term. This is precisely the concern that an abortion provider voiced to me just one week ago. He said, ‘As I see it, the so-called pro-life position only applies to one kind of life. After the infant is born, pro-life people tend to disappear from the picture.’

Chardos told me that to be pro-life, you must “provide alternatives.”

“That’s what Birthright does,” he said.  “Birthright provides based on the mother’s needs.  Without alternatives, what is (the mother) going to do? How does she deal with her pregnancy? Who does she turn to? Who can she rely on?”

As I mentioned earlier, Birthright doesn’t just cut off ties once the baby has entered into the world – eyes all scrunched up and sobbing.  Birthright continues to aid these new mothers, getting them “day-to-day.”

“We want to go through the pregnancy with them, and teach them how to care for their children,” Chardos said.

Next January will mark Birthright of Columbia’s 35th anniversary.  And Birthright has provided countless women with an alternative to killing her unborn child.

They offer financial help, shelter, clothes, an education (Birthright will pay for the mother and father to complete their GEDs completely free of charge), job opportunities, and a network of people who are there to help.

Perhaps the most striking statement Hank told me?

“Birthright isn’t extraordinary. We don’t do extraordinary things. We simply offer ‘simple-ordinary’ efforts for extraordinary needs and extraordinary women,” he said.

Isn’t that the message of being pro-life?  These lives of unborn children have the potential to be extraordinary—they just need to have a chance, which is given by simple acts of kindness, empathy, and support.  I’m not anti-woman, and neither is Birthright, we’re simply pro-chance.  As Henry Hyde said, “This is a debate about our understanding of human dignity, what it means to be a member of the human family, even though tiny, powerless and unwanted.”

Taylor Brown is a 20-something Wofford College graduate who somehow got sucked into politics at an early age.  She is easily won over with Rush’s fast food, wine, and spirited political arguments.

Taylor, you just made this man cry. A beautiful testimony of ‘life’. You are wise beyond your years.

Let’s encourage everyone to be clear with our language. One does not abort a baby. One aborts a shuttle launch. One aborts a mission to Mars. One kills a baby. This helps people see the real differences between the people running our government.

Nancy Pelosi supports killing babies.
John McCain is against killing babies.
Barack Obama supports killing babies.
Mitt Romney is against killing babies.

Almost all Democrats support killing babies.
Almost all Republicans are against killing babies.

If this language of “baby killing” is offensive to you, imagine how offensive the actual act of killing a baby is. And then realize that we have all been conditioned to accept this doublespeak in order to be tricked into accepting what we would not normally accept.

Since Democrats lack the judgment to see that baby killing is wrong, why would we assume that their judgment on other issues would be any better? .

Goobersmacker November 14, 2014 at 12:06 pm

Let’s encourage everyone to be clear with our language. One does not abort a baby. One aborts a fetus, which is not a “baby” any more than an acorn is a “tree” or an egg is a “chicken.”

Have you ever seen what a woman’s period looks like? If so that is what the abortion looks like after she has taken RU486. Stop with you anti-choice lies that all abortions are on 39.5 week fetuses.

The Colonel November 14, 2014 at 1:22 pm

Here – this is a week by week view of what the fetus looks like:

someone45 November 14, 2014 at 1:24 pm

Don’t click on links from forums because viruses make my computer sad…
But in the first trimester the ZEF (when most abortions happen) looks nothing at all like an actual baby. The late term abortions are usually done for the health of the woman or a fetal defect and I do not care what the ZEF looks like then because I place the life of the actual over the life of the potential.

The Colonel November 14, 2014 at 1:40 pm

What a lame excuse – splurge on some AV software.

At 8 weeks the brain is a stage of rapid development and the facial features can be distinguished.

At 10 weeks the liver and kidneys are functioning

At 13 weeks the “zygote” looks like a baby

someone45 November 14, 2014 at 1:43 pm

At 13 weeks the ZEF does not look like a fully developed baby. Why do you people continue to lie.

The Colonel November 14, 2014 at 3:42 pm

You put the words “fully developed” in the discussion, not me. Tell you what, click on the link I gave you and see what you think. If your Windows ME box gets a virus I’ll pay to have it fixed.

Gosh. I have never heard an expectant mother tell someone else they are going to have a ‘fetus’.

How does a homosexual like Smirks abort a ‘fetus’-and can he marry that aborted ‘fetus’?

someone45 November 14, 2014 at 1:18 pm

Well the pregnant woman who is not yet a mother-assuming she does not have any kids- is going to give birth to a baby. So at some point she will have a baby. She is not going to give birth to a fetus.

Taylor Brown November 14, 2014 at 1:34 pm

If that is the case, then when does her “fetus” become a baby? Is it when the *mother* (and yes, she is a mother by carrying a child in her womb) declares her unborn child to be one? Is it when the baby is born and takes it’s first breath? “A person’s a person no matter how small.”

someone45 November 14, 2014 at 1:38 pm

Well when the woman gives birth it is a baby. While it is inside her body it is a fetus. Also no she is not a mother just because she is pregnant.
She is a pregnant woman and until she gives birth she is not a mother and the ZEF is not a baby.

Taylor Brown November 14, 2014 at 1:47 pm

“WE’RE PREGNANT! ….With a fetus… Yes, we’ve already begun to love him, picked out a name, decorated his nursery, and he has fingernails and can feel pain, but don’t worry… He’s not ACTUALLY a human being.” I will be praying for you.

someone45 November 14, 2014 at 1:50 pm

Anyone who says “we are pregnant” is obviously planning to keep the ZEF. A woman who is having an abortion is going to call it what it is, embryo/fetus/parasite/etc.

The ZEF cannot feel pain until way after abortion is illegal in most places. Don’t tell me you are one of those who claim it can feel pain for like 2 weeks on?

Taylor Brown November 14, 2014 at 2:00 pm

Sweetheart, all I can do for you is pray that you eventually realize that life doesn’t just begin when you claim it does–life exists in the womb, and I’m so grateful that your parents gave you the chance to write your story and bring you into this world so that you can argue about what it means to be a human (or when you become a person).

Taylor Brown November 14, 2014 at 2:00 pm

someone45 November 14, 2014 at 2:04 pm

The ZEF is alive in the womb but it has no right to life. That comes when it is born. A woman is not an inferior incubator and forcing her into gestational slavery is disgusting.

I just do not understand why you people think a woman is inferior to the fetus.

Taylor Brown November 14, 2014 at 2:11 pm

“The ZEF is alive in the womb” now we’re getting somewhere. By admitting to this life, abortion IS murder. If you take away someone’s life that is murder. The woman and the baby are equal. Both are alive, both are human beings. BOTH deserve life.

Smirks November 14, 2014 at 4:49 pm

“The ZEF is alive in the womb” now we’re getting somewhere. By admitting to this life, abortion IS murder.

That moment where someone thinks they just got handed a “GOTCHA!” but didn’t. Referring to the ZEF as something that is alive isn’t much different than calling the bacteria in your intestines “alive.” What matters is what that living thing is classified as.

You’re talking about a life form that cannot sustain itself. Without the environment it is in and being able to pull nutrients from the body of the mother, it cannot survive. Once born, a baby holds no reliance on the mother’s body and can receive nutrients from other sources.

The difference between the ZEF and the baby is autonomy. Independence from the mother’s womb is what makes a baby a baby. Autonomy gives the right to life.

Something similar applies to a child once they turn 18. Before 18 they are considered children, not fully autonomous, therefore they can be denied certain rights or told to do some things they may not want to do. Once they turn 18, they gain that autonomy, which means they have access to various rights, and that their parents/guardians no longer have authority to exert control over them.

Taylor Brown November 14, 2014 at 5:06 pm

Babies have been born premature at just days over 21 weeks in the mother’s womb and have survived.. And have been healthy! This is in spite of the fact that many states allow mothers to seek life-ending procedures long after the 21st week. Moreover, comparing an unborn human child to bacteria is frankly deplorable.

And, on a different subject, does one have to be a mother (or religious) in order to see that life is life and should be respected? I think not. To be pro-life is to accept the logic that there’s human life in the womb and to “abort” it is to murder another human.

“The fight for the right to life is not the cause of a special few, but the cause of every man, woman and child who cares not only about his or her own family, but the whole family of man.” – Dr. Mildred Jefferson

someone45 November 15, 2014 at 7:54 pm

A woman is not a mother until she gives birth and a ZEF is basically a bacteria/parasite.

I find it sad that we live in a world where some people view women as inferior worthless incubators.

someone45 November 14, 2014 at 8:12 pm

Can’t be equal if you ruin the life the pregnant woman for the yet to be born ZEF.

Guilt, following abortions, ruins the lives of many women.

someone45 November 15, 2014 at 4:24 pm

Nope…. most women feel nothing but relief and happiness that the misery is over.

Buz Martin November 16, 2014 at 7:16 pm

Some women do feel guilt, yes. I know some who did, and still do, decades later. That’s just a fact.

Then there are those smug, self-righteous religionists who seem to dedicate their lives to deepening that guilt by preaching incessantly that they have sinned against God, committed “murder”, etc. etc. Then they post stupid comments about the lives they themselves contribute to ruining in that way.

Hey, it make a lot of money for preachers and politicians, though, and for those who are a little of both.

someone45 November 16, 2014 at 8:39 pm

Most women do not feel guilt and that is a fact.

Buz Martin November 16, 2014 at 11:26 pm

I can state as a fact that I’ve been told by some women that they do feel guilty about it. You cannot, with any degree of authority or credibility, state as a fact that most women do not feel quilt — for the simple and glaringly obvious reason that you don’t know all women who have had abortions, ever.

Thus, I am stating a fact, but you are stating your own opinion.

And that’s a fact.

SCBlues November 15, 2014 at 4:51 am

“The woman and the baby are equal. ”
Not in your self-righteous, holier-than-thou, I’ll pray for you, condescending world.

A mother always puts her child ahead of herself. A child is part of a mother’s very soul.

You would have to have a soul to understand that. Did daddy molest you? This group may be able to help you.

someone45 November 14, 2014 at 8:11 pm

Well a pregnant woman is not a mother so she can put herself before the ZEF is she wants.

Taylor Brown November 14, 2014 at 2:18 pm

Parenthood is realizing that you have created a person, a tiny perfect person, who is part of you. They share half of your DNA. A parent wants their child to be a better version of than they are–to do and have the things that they didn’t have. To deny this is to deny human dignity.

Mom of 3 November 14, 2014 at 2:35 pm

Do you have kids? You seem to make a lot of claims about parenthood & what it means to be a mother….for a 23 year old.

“Do you have kids?”
Best comment on the thread. Of course she claims to be a “20-something” – WTF?

With Tom Ervin a distant memory, I guess she needed someone new to be obsessed with.

Buz Martin November 16, 2014 at 7:22 pm

She is a he. The name “Sandi Morals” was chosen because one of his many obsessions (don’t ask me why) in past posts to other blogs has been a seedy alkie bar in Garden City called The Sandy Monkey. Claims to know the owners, who he says are fine people. That’s the joint with the big fiberglass ape on top wearing a Speedo. Sandy Monkey is close to Murrells Inlet. Sandy-Sandi, Murrels-Morals.

He’s also the one who gave GT the erroneous info that I wear Speedos, which GT then conflated into Will hanging out with me (as my side-kick, hilariously enough), also wearing a Speedo.

Now, let me hasten to add that this observation about where pogo got the ID “Sandi Morals”, well … that’s about as close to being in any way logical as he ever gets. Believe it or not, he is far more insane that Big T.

CorruptionInColumbia November 17, 2014 at 9:35 am

Wow! Thank you for the clarification and information Buz! Interesting info to say the least. Regarding being wrong about you wearing a speedo, do you reckon they were peeping in the window at the wrong house?

Buz Martin November 17, 2014 at 9:49 am

It goes along with the bullshit about me being a cross-dresser. Mostly spread by Thomas G. Davis, the “developer” in the South Strand area who has basically stalked me and my family on the Sun News site, and — if you can believe him and his buddies’ comments on The SNOB — in “real life.” Davis, btw, is the co-patent-holder of the key technology used to develop most of the voting machines in the USA. He is a full-bore sociopath, a truly nasty and viscous drunken asshole if there ever was one.

CorruptionInColumbia November 17, 2014 at 9:53 am

He sounds like one! If there were any doubt, the voting machine things should cinch it for anyone on the outside looking in.

Buz Martin November 17, 2014 at 10:02 am

Yeah. He’s a Repub, but he got that patent with Doug Wilder, former governor of VA, a Dem. He lived in Midlothian at the time. Hired someone to do all the R&D on the machines, and apparently marketed them for a while. Then, I believe, he sold his interest in the company to someone else, and they took it from there. He got a lot of scutiny in these parts because he bragged in his comments to Sun News story threads that he could program a voting machine anywhere in the country from his laptop at his office in Murrells Inlet. Sources tell me the FBI took a keen interest in that with one interviewee, who they questioned for over an hour about Davis alone. Whether or not he himself was every questioned by him relative to voting irregularities in Horry County that may have been related to “Chambergate” (“Coastal Kickback”) I have no idea. He may have been, and may have implicated others in wrong-doing to get his ass off the hook.

Buz Martin November 16, 2014 at 7:18 pm

Sandi/pogo obsesses over me far more than he obsesses over you. We go back a long ways. ;)

McCain rejects the Right To Life of the unborn: John McCain has funded the killing of 300,000 children by surgical abortion. And just as Germany had no right to determine that innocent Jews could by killed, neither do U.S. states have the right to legislate that innocent babies can be killed. Yet John McCain rejects that an unborn child has the right to life:
-by approving of the abortion of an unwanted child if his father is a rapist;
-by his career-long refusal to vote for Human Life Amendments;
-by funding the killing of the tiniest boys and girls in embryonic research; and
-by promising to nominate justices, like Antonin Scalia, who promote the “states’ right” to kill children.
And he has authorized funding to surgically abort hundreds of thousands of unborn children.

McCain gives $100s of millions to abortionists: Funding for Planned Parenthood and other abortionists has continued to soar with John McCain’s support even when George W. Bush entered the White House, and even during Republican control of the U.S. Senate and the House of Representatives and the U.S. Supreme Court. Funding to Planned Parenthood has increased by tens of millions of dollars in the Bush years. Further, John McCain’s consistent Health and Human Services ‘yes’ votes have funded Title X, Title XIX, and through other avenues, has subsidized Planned Parenthood and pays for chemical abortifacients like the Morning After Pill, RU-486, surgical abortions for children whose fathers are rapists, and generally subsidizing the immorality promoted by the abortion industry.

McCain kills the tiniest living kids for research: As soon as Sarah Palin was selected, her name was used in a campaign radio ad to whitewash and further John McCain’s role in embryonic stem cell funding, that is, the fatal dissecting and harvesting of the bodies of the tiniest boys and girls for grisly research on embryos.

McCain rejects Human Life Amendments: John McCain refuses to endorse Colorado’s historic Personhood Amendment 48; he refuses to sign on to the U.S. Senate S.3111 Life at Conception Act which has the unprecedented support of eleven U.S. Senators; in his Saturday night conversion he told Rick Warren that human rights “begin at conception” but continues to fund the killing of these kids in research and advocates that states can kill these children. Barack Obama denies that life begins at conception, probably lying to himself. But John McCain is more culpable and represents an even more wicked position, that yes, I acknowledge that human life and rights begin at conception, but I support killing those kids.

Republicans for Choice likes McCain: When McCain funds abortions, ‘pro-choice’ Republicans take heart. CNS News reported on February 6, 2008: “The Republicans for Choice Political Action Committee has endorsed John McCain (R-Ariz.), saying he is the best candidate now that former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani is out of the presidential race. … Republicans for Choice founder and Chairwoman Ann E.W. Stone told Cybercast News Service that McCain’s pro-life position wasn’t an issue… ‘He’s shown his willingness to reach across the party.'”

McCain funds 300,000 abortions: Said noted pro-life researcher Darrell Birkey, “John McCain is the Republican candidate who funds the surgical abortion of 300,000 children. In one example out of decades of his funding abortionists, he voted to allocate monies on Oct. 27, 2005 for tax-funded abortion if the baby is unwanted because his father is a criminal, that is, a rapist.” The official Senate.gov site documents the McCain Yea vote on the Health and Human Services Appropriations Public Law 109-149 and the Government Printing Office documents that McCain’s vote authorized funding for surgical abortion to kill an unborn child whose father is a criminal as the law states, SEC. 507. (a) “funds are appropriated in this Act” that includes coverage of abortion, SEC. 508. (a) (1) “if the pregnancy is the result of an act of rape or incest.” [ARTLaction.com links to source documents.]

McCain and Palin refuse to enforce 14th Amendment: By promoting the immoral claim that killing unborn children is a states’ rights issue, both Republican candidates would require the federal government to violate the U.S. Constitution and tolerate child killing, rejecting the 14th Amendment: “…nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.” The U.S. Constitution does not define groups of human beings as people, yet Jews, Blacks, and unborn children are all people and ‘conservatives’ like Palin and McCain should understand and promote this simple truth. In addition to God’s enduring command, “Do not murder,” even the Constitution requires states to uphold equal protection to all persons. So McCain and Palin are guilty of willful violation of God’s law and man’s law in the most egregious matter, permitting the intentional killing of innocent children.

Does McCain really even oppose Roe? A campaign staffer recently misrepresented John McCain’s comment to the San Francisco Chronicle in 1999 that, “I’d love to see a point where [Roe v. Wade] is irrelevant, and could be repealed because abortion is no longer necessary. But certainly in the short term, or even the long term, I would not support repeal of Roe v. Wade, which would then force X number of women in America to [undergo] illegal and dangerous operations.” According to anti-Christian journalist Matt Welch, “Explained McCain campaign staffer and social conservative Patrick Hynes on his personal blog in December 2006: ‘Okay, so what of that quote from 1999? The one about not supporting repeal [of] Roe v. Wade? It was a mistake, plain and simple. And it was immediately clarified.’ … In fact, the comment wasn’t ‘immediately clarified’ at all. Several days later, when the Washington Post asked the campaign whether McCain had misspoken, they said no. But a few days before the Post story ran, McCain said on CNN… that he rejected a ‘litmus’ test for Supreme Court nominees… Meanwhile, however, McCain was actively seeking to rewrite the national Republican platform… McCain said in his famous Virginia Beach speech in February 2000 [that politicians should not be] pandering to… the agents of intolerance [such as] Pat Robertson or Jerry Falwell… McCain gives the voting public what it wants… a man onto whom people are forever projecting their own ideological fantasies.”

Cindy McCain said in September that her husband John SUPPORTS Roe v. Wade. Pro-choice Republicans like the McCains have been trained to say they are pro-life while even supporting abortion rights. Consider this CBS News transcript:

Cindy McCain: I’m pro-life. I’m on the record as being pro-life, like my husband…
Katie Couric: And do you believe Roe v. Wade should be overturned?
McCain: No. no.
Couric: No. Why not? Your husband does.
McCain: No. I don’t think he does.
Couric: He believes it should be overturned. That’s what he told me, and that it should go to the states.
McCain: Well, in that respect. Yes, yeah, I do. I understand what you’re saying now. It’s a states issue.
Couric: So, you believe it should be overturned or shouldn’t be overturned.
McCain: I believe it’s a states issue. That I do believe.
[This intense evil and political cover for pro-choice Republicans was pioneered by Christian libertarians including Ron Paul who, like John McCain, is pro-choice state-by-state, as though killing a fetus were a zoning issue. States prosecute, but have no authority to legalize, murder.]
Couric: After the interview we contacted the McCain campaign to clarify Cindy McCain’s position on abortion. They told us that, like Laura Bush, Mrs. McCain does not advocate overturning Roe v. Wade, which guarantees the legal right to an abortion.

‘Pro-life’ means nothing today: in McCain’s Republican circles, ‘pro-lifers’ actually support Roe v. Wade. They support killing unborn children and they lie to Christians to get money and votes to gain power. So Cindy McCain didn’t get the memo and wasn’t aware of the campaign rhetoric that her husband now wants to overturn Roe v. Wade.

But Doesn’t Nat’l Right To Life say McCain opposes funding? Yes, NRTL says McCain “Voted consistently against federal funding of abortion.” They arrive at this by ignoring his votes that fund surgical abortion, chemical abortion, that kill the tiniest children for research, and that give hundreds of millions to Planned Parenthood. A National RTL 100% rating is a near-certain indicator that a Republican is pro-choice with exceptions. See Vision Forum reminding Christians of National RTL’s revealing report of a few years ago titled, “John McCain Threatens the Pro-Life Cause.”

McCain is not even a defender of marriage: Of all things! In the Senate recently John McCain voted against a constitutional amendment to protect marriage as between one man and one woman. He won’t protect marriage, won’t protect the unborn, and in a McCain administration, he’d allow every state to abort children indiscriminately. Republicans and Democrats together are destroying America while many Christians ignore that out of lust for the rush of political competition. As long as Christians are willing to support unrepentant, anti-marriage, killers of unborn children, America will continue our moral freefall. So American Right To Life Action reminds believers: when good people support those who kill unborn children, the abortionist cannot lose.

McCain promises pro-choice judges: Christians have been told to vote for McCain because of the judges he will nominate. But again on Oct. 15, 2008 in the third presidential debate McCain said he has no “litmus test” meaning he is willing to nominate pro-choice judges. And worse, he misleads people by referring to pro-choice judges as though they were pro-life. The un-cashed $10,000 check to Nat’l Right To Life indicates that there are NO JUSTICES on the Supreme Court who have ever held that the unborn child has a right to life. Not one. Yet John McCain promises to nominate more of the same. Consider this widely circulated press release that appeared online including atYahoo! News, the Denver Post, Covenant News and USA Today:

Sometimes the voters and politicians have difficult choices. You could write (or copy /paste) the same type article/comment -and many did – about Lincoln’s support for slavery. Yet his presidency brought US slavery to an end.

The Colonel November 14, 2014 at 12:28 pm

Birthright is an outstanding organization – there are many similar organizations state wide. For those of you who are pro-life, put your money where your mouth (or keyboard) is and find one to support. My efforts go toward Daybreak Ministries but there are any number of religious and secular organizations out there.

Guero November 14, 2014 at 2:34 pm

My religion, The Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monsters, teaches life begins at birth. Screw your religion and your pathetic attempts to impose your beliefs on the world.

If you like your religion, you can keep your religion. (No one else wants it.)

Guero, say something intelligent for a change.

SCBlues November 14, 2014 at 5:27 pm

“Birthright is an outstanding organization . . . ”
Planned Parenthood is an outstanding organization – no matter how many times Republicans defund them.
If you are against abortion – THEN DON’T HAVE ONE. How much simpler can it be?????

The Colonel November 14, 2014 at 5:32 pm

And don’t use my tax dollars to have one either – Planned Parenthood, the most inappropriately named organization in the world.

Yes, I know (un)Planned Parenthood doesn’t use my tax dollars to actually perform abortions, just to cover their overhead and pay their directors.

SCBlues November 14, 2014 at 5:46 pm

“And don’t use my tax dollars to have one either . . .”
How much of your tax dollars goes to Planned Parenthood? Do you even understand the services that Planned parenthood provides? Obviously not.
We ought to get rid of all birth control, right, Colonel? Would you be happy then? Of course you wouldn’t. Once you accomplished that then you would have to find something else to tell women that they cannot do with their own bodies.
If you are against abortion – THEN DON’T HAVE ONE.

The Colonel November 14, 2014 at 6:04 pm

Do I know what (un)Planned Parenthood does? Probably better than you do. Am I against birth control – hell no, I actually appreciate that effort of (un)Planned Parenthood.

In 2013 (u)PP revenues included $480 million from the gubamint (44% of their total revenues, and 66 million more than they got in 2010 – in that same time, they’ve cut the numbers of every service they provide except abortion and closed more than 70 offices)

Spousal unit is heavily involved in breast/cervical cancer as well as a myriad of other women’s issues. I live this stuff every day.

SCBlues November 14, 2014 at 7:33 pm

“Do I know what (un)Planned Parenthood does? Probably better than you do”

Well, your posts don’t make me think so.

“For the record SC, I’m “pro-choice” – I just choose life and am willing to actually get involved in the decision and the aftermath”
Great. Glad to hear it.

Frustrated Voter November 14, 2014 at 9:00 pm

Yes, we understand the services that Planned Parenthood provides…killing one baby after another all day long.

SCBlues November 15, 2014 at 4:55 am

“Yes, we understand the services that Planned Parenthood provides…killing one baby after another all day long.”
You obviously have not clue as to PP’s services.

It’s not that simple for the baby, who gets no vote…

SCBlues November 15, 2014 at 4:46 am

“It’s not that simple for the baby, who gets no vote…”
If men could get pregnant we would not even be having this discussion. Is that simple enough for you?

How cliché.

“It’s not that simple for the baby, who gets no vote…”
I’m guessing it will just be the White Republican male fetuses that get to vote huh? No Voter ID needed for them, huh?

Something really evil about a mother killing her own child. The hopelessness of many in our youngest generation is directly related to the devaluing of human life in our society today.

It all begins in the ‘womb’.

A pregnant woman is not a mother and there is nothing wrong with a woman having one. The misery of pregnancy would destroy my life and I will not allow that to happen.

HD November 14, 2014 at 1:59 pm

Please don’t – ever.

someone45 November 14, 2014 at 2:05 pm

Don’t plan on it. I use BC and if it fails I will have an abortion.

Nope… just a woman who knows I deserve better than the misery of pregnancy.

“they’re a mother; they can make life and bring it into the world!”

Not something a woman is going to get really excited about when she wants a child free life and the misery of pregnancy would destroy her life.
Also she is not a mother until she gives birth.

Frustrated. November 14, 2014 at 2:16 pm

You managed to make a mockery of a wonderful organization with your problematic diction. Congratulations.

Buz Martin November 16, 2014 at 7:35 pm

Taylor’s diction is just fine. Her writing, in general, is excellent. A near-total lack of logic and discernment, along with an overweening sense of moral and intellectual superiority to all who disagree with her — that’s the problematic part of that way that lovely young woman presents herself on FITS.

With age, however, may come wisdom, discernment and humility. Stranger things have happened.

tj November 14, 2014 at 2:23 pm

We used to try and ‘rescue’ women and their babies outside an abortion mill in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Our group similar to what the Colonel and Taylor advocate for. We offered alternatives to the destruction of the child.

The evil I observed outside this clinic was forever ingrained in my heart. We would watch the women go into the clinic-and then shortly one of the nurse’s would come to the front door holding up a finger for the number of children they has murdered that day, with a smile on her face.

Abortion is a religion to liberals and the Democrat Party, the party of perversion and death.

FastEddy23 November 14, 2014 at 2:54 pm

Me? I’m pro-life = I want to live as long as He will let me. I’m a small “l” libertarian so I’m Pro-Choise, too, Pro-Choise on Everything!

Now, there is one thing I do have a problem with. That’s the g’ment deciding what kind of medical treatments my wife should or should not have. So, if pushin’ comes to shovein’, and the arm waving and shouting starts, and My Wife’s Constitutional Rights are interfered with In Any Way, I will reach for my Second Amendment Rights and send the lot of ’em packing …

Fact November 14, 2014 at 2:59 pm

If you deem that a six week embryo has rights and you support those rights, why not use a picture of a six week embryo? A picture of a baby is irrelevant because that isn’t what your article is about.

Nölff November 14, 2014 at 3:43 pm

tomstickler November 14, 2014 at 6:47 pm

Back in the day when I served on the Board of Directors of our local Planned Parenthood Affiliate, we would get monthly statistics on the number of referrals made.

This affiliate did not perform abortions, but did make referrals to other affiliates and independent clinics that did provide such services. Referrals were also made to Birthright and the local Florence Crittenden home for unwed mothers [to be].

In almost every month the number of referrals to Birthright and Florence Crittenden outnumbered the referrals to abortion providers. Birthright never referred one of their clients to Planned Parenthood for contraception counseling, nor did they offer any such service themselves other than abstinence and the “rhythm method.”

Bill Clinton had it right on abortion: it should be legal, safe, and rare.

The anti-birth-control conservative fringers have waged their war on the last as well as the first.
