Abortion and the Left’s Lies

You may recall Hillary Clinton getting into trouble in the run up to the 2016 election in the United States for referring to an unborn baby as, err, well, an unborn baby. A complete no-no for the Dems who need to consider an unborn baby to be a non-human, a fetus, so that it can be killed by being torn to pieces with good conscience.

Joe Biden has just gone further than Clinton by using the word “child” in context of abortion. I don’t think the Dems will fuss a great deal. He’s clearly beyond rationale thinking and will get a pass. I think he should get a pass. We make allowances for those in their dotage with muddled minds. It’s just that they’re not usually presidents.

Supposing that the leaked Supreme Court majority decision on abortion is genuine, which it seems to be. Then the limits or otherwise on abortion will go back to the individual states to determine. Or, the US Congress could legislate and see whether it survives challenge.

Having abortion rights being determined by legislation, federal or state, is clearly better than the Supreme Court, any court, inventing rights out of thin air; the current state of affairs. But it won’t at all heal the divide in the United States. The debate is not so divisive here because, unlike in America, few people believe in God. Human life is the product of evolution as are cockroaches; therefore, human life is much more dispensable here; provided, that is, we don’t have to actually see the awful deeds.

In America the division is stark.

On one side, human life, made by God, is precious whether it’s at its beginning or at its end.

On the other side, what I prefer to call the dark side, there is no human life until it emerges from a birthing- parent’s womb; a menstruating-person’s womb. The claim, which temporarily and tellingly abandons the language of woke, is that a “woman” has the right to decide what to do with her own body. Here’s Kamala Harris putting the case, stridently. It’s always put stridently to disguise its weakness.

The difficulty is that another body is involved long before he or she emerges from the womb. The unborn baby’s body. It never gets a mention. It doesn’t get a mention because it has to be ignored. “It is a woman’s right to kill the unborn baby inside her at any time she chooses,” isn’t a very sellable proposition. Yet, it is the truth of the pro-abortion position.

As we know, truth and the Left seldom coincide. An empire of lies defines the Left. Denying human life in the womb is just another one of those lies.

Now you don’t have to have an absolute view about abortion. Circumstances can alter cases. But how can you debate the matter with those who refuse to acknowledge that abortion takes away a human life. The truth is, you can’t. And they can’t. Their position is untenable. Ergo, they shout shrilly.

  1. I think Biden will sit this one out, and should be allowed to.
    However, and this is my wild outsider prediction: the Lizard People will foment unrest on this issue to the degree that Kamala Harris will be pushed from the vice-presidency by November, and the hands of a suitable extreme anti-abortion domestic terrorist.

  3. Nope. I do not accept that abortionists / leftists believe the unborn foetus to not yet be a baby or a human being or a child when they are having it aborted, since this allows them far too much leeway to claim that every other evil they commit is not intended to be evil (= no guilty mind).

    I know plenty of pro-abortion types, and all of them reckon that if a pregnant woman is killed in a car crash, or by a stray bullet, or whatever…..”a woman and her unborn child” have died / been killed. Likewise leftists are nearly unanimous in seeing miscarriages as involving dead babies or children. In the case of murder / negligence/ reckless killings etc they have no trouble counting the woman (the “mother”!) and the foetus / foetuses as multiple deaths. Unwanted foetal deaths are tragedies!

    I suppose what I’m saying is that, for leftists, unwanted abortions / terminations are kids dying, but wanted ones are “something else” (murders they cannot face?).

    Ya wanna have a leftist omelette: ya gotta break some eggs.

  11. I was listening to the BBC the other night on this issue, and they interviewed a female professor/lecturer(??) from a U.S. university. They asked if the anti-abortion movement was gaining momentum and why.

    The Uni-lady responded that she didn’t think it was the protests that had changed minds, but just the fact that with modern ultra-sound images, so many people now know what a baby-in-the-womb looks like and don’t buy the ‘clump of cells’ line so readily. Indeed, many parents proudly stick their ‘first photos’ of baby on the fridge.

    The ‘sexual revolution’ is a complete and utter failure, and like so many other evils, it is always the most vulnerable who suffer most.

  12. I think you may find that most Americans consider abortion one of the many birth control options, it certainly is here in Australia.

    didn’t people screech at Tony Abbot, “keep your rosaries off my ovaries”?

    in Australia it is considered a woman’s choice, well, more than considered to be honest

    the biggest problem I see with all this in the USA is the left’s reliance on an unelected judiciary to enact laws rather than doing the hard work to make legislation that should be the province of the democratically elected government

    roe vs. wade was always fragile and was refereed to by the US left every time conservatives got a chance to put a judge onto their supreme court

    they knew it was fragile, but still wouldn’t do the hard yards, they always threatened violence if anyone tried to change it

    the US system is a mess, and there are some who would see our system become the same, with a bill of rights that would do exactly the same thing, put laws into the hands of the unelected judiciary instead of the people’s representatives

  16. OK. One more time (following @ 2.52an above) ….”Losing an unborn child is not a subject that’s discussed very openly, considering how frequently it happens: As many as 15 percent of known pregnancies end in miscarriage….couples kept that loss a secret from many friends and loved ones, even though research shows that the emotional weight of miscarriage is a heavy burden……..“Miscarriages can be devastating to a woman and a couple,” says Alan Copperman, MD, the director of the division of reproductive endocrinology and infertility at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York City. “This sense of loss is very real and can often take time to recover from.”

    So, everyone knows the thing being carried is a human child. Example: “on November 25, 2020, the Duchess of Sussex revealed that she had a miscarriage last July while holding her son, Archie, the child she and Prince Harry had in May 2019….’I knew, as I clutched my firstborn child, that I was losing my second,” she wrote.

    One more time. STOP giving the left a free pass on this. The left does NOT see unborn children as clumps of cells. They see them as unborn children like every normal person, then they kill them.

    FFS, why let them off the hook on this by pretending leftists do not see foetuses as human beings??

  20. “They see them as unborn children like every normal person, then they kill them.”

    While that seems to be the case, it is important to understand there is a difference between left and right (in the US at least) with regards to what “termination of pregnancy” means.
    To the right, this means killing the unborn child.
    To the left, this means the end of the pregnancy.

    Bear in mind that a pregnancy can be “ended” prematurely without killing the child – after 21 weeks, either an induced labour or other means to remove the child from the womb can be done and the child can survive with modern ICU care, same as many natural premature births. Hence for lefties it is a different argument about 3rd trimester “abortions” as opposed to killing them – there is no reason, in their minds, that the pregnancy can’t be “terminated” while NOT killing the child.
    Not true for all of them of course, but this is what the more “moderate” ones will claim. The “acid test” of course would be what any legislation actually stipulated in this regard.

    Not saying I agree with any of it, just pointing out the difference in “ideation” on what an “abortion” means and what the consequences thereof are for the unborn child.

    O.G., as an operating theatre technician years back, I clearly remember the hours a patient had no heartbeat while his/her heart was being fixed up. So, not alive for that time?

    The general opinion as I recall from most embryology textbooks is that the foetus is a living, self-organizing entity, distinct from its two parents, from the moment of its conception. It is clearly alive, even while busy in ways we are still just beginning to understand, constructing things like its heart and brain.

    No. There’s no such thing as “deciding” any human right. You have a right by dint of you being a human being. No-one, woman or man, can decide that an innocent person, born or unborn, deserves to be killed. The Romans were happy with the paterfamilias killing his born children. Happy with that?

    Imposing a law on this matter is effectively a requirement that poor people have no choice. Everyone with money can do what they like.

Or at least having them adopted out to someone who would care for them. Like, say, me or my friends or thousands of others. Bit different from the requirement to wear a burqa!

    This argument is an attack on liberty.

    So the liberty of an innocent human being counts for nothing?

  58. Yeah, this thread is all a load of cobblers.

    The true nature of the Alito decision is that the right hates women, and wants them to die if they’re not suitable brood mares for the glory of the white nation.

    The tell is that many of the state laws triggered by Roe being overturned do not include any exceptions for rape or incest, plus they ban abortions for ectopic pregnancies and other situations where the health of the mother is at stake.

    The extra tell is that next cab off the rank is banning contraception, already on the cards in Mississippi.

    For years, this site’s predecessor hosted interminable debates over the fine points of edge cases, but all of that subtlety has been rendered moot by the situation Alito has set up. This is not about life at all, it’s about subjugating women. Anti-abortionists aren’t even pretending any more, there is no fig leaf. It’s all Dominionist domination by a minority of priest-kings.
