Pro-abortion group hosts Ďabortion carnivalí

While I may be in Disney World for the rest of the weekend, some pro-aborts will be engaging in activities that are less family related. The Feminist Majority Foundation (FMF) and its Choices Campus Leadership Program have launched a sort of carnival, a blog carnival that is, known as “#AbortionMatters blog carnival,” which started on August 23rd and will run until August 26th. You can see the group calling for submissions for the “carnival,” which is part of “#31 Days of Unity” on their page here, as well as the heralding the start of the event here.

The Christian Post put forth a helpful piece about the group and the event, while Campus Reform includes statements from the spokeswoman of FMF, Kari Ross in their piece:

“One in three women will have an abortion by the time they’re 45, and yet we’re treating this like it’s some extreme procedure, when it can be a lot safer than even having your wisdom teeth removed, and is almost just as common,” said Kari Ross, who is the spokeswoman for the Feminist Majority Foundation (FMF).

Okay, so it shouldn’t be all that shocking that a spokeswoman for a pro-abortion organization would try to make abortion seem normal. Except that just because something may be “common,” does not mean it is morally right, or that it is healthy for women, or as Ross claims, safe. You may be in pain after having your wisdom teeth removed, but abortion brings about a different kind of pain; and that’s a pain that for many women, stays with you forever. It is a cost that takes a lot out of you, not only monetarily. For a woman who speaks for a feminist organization, she isn’t really doing a good job speaking for those who have been hurt by abortion.

Indeed, further in the piece for Campus Reform, Ross dismisses the event being offensive in any way, and seems to do so rather casually:

Ross dismissed concerns that some might find the word “carnival” offensive in the context of abortion, saying those concerns missed the “real issue.”

“We’re really highlighting the real stories of people’s experiences and not the over-politicized, exaggerated cases that we think of when we hear the word ‘abortion,’” she said.

Ross said the carnival is geared towards students in particularly because they “are some of the ones most heavily impacted.”

She does a nice job deflecting there, doesn’t she? Actually, what the “real issue” is involves abortion having to do with a dead baby and a wounded mother. As a blog post for the Creative Minority Report mentions though, “[t]he babies could not be reached for comment on their perspective.”

This event, and this group then, seem to be sadly incapable of understanding abortion as it really is. Ross herself denies abortion being as serous as it is when she says “…yet we’re treating this like it’s some extreme procedure…” She also shuts down any debate concerning abortion pretty much when she refers to “the over-politicized, exaggerated cases that we think of…” Abortion advocates have a range of almost bi-polar and hypocritical opinions on an abortion, from this case treating it as it’s no big deal, to it being a painful and difficult decision which women make, but a decision we need to respect either way.

Such a group represents the unfortunate taking advantage of college students, all the while standing up for abortion, not women, and especially not the women who have been wounded by abortion.

When people call evil good there is not much way to argue with them morally. Remember when abortion was presented as a “necessary evil” used to prevent greater suffering.

Those days are long gone.

Some of the hash tags are disgusting, however many are starting to challenge the death cult of abortion

Now abortion is just another form of birth control.

The 21st century version of chivalry: a man walks on the outside of the curb as he accompanies his girlfriend to Planned Parenthood.

So supportive.

Romans 1:18-32

18For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, 19because that which is known about God is evident within them; for God made it evident to them. 20For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse. 21For even though they knew God, they did not honor Him as God or give thanks, but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened. 22Professing to be wise, they became fools, 23and exchanged the glory of the incorruptible God for an image in the form of corruptible man and of birds and four-footed animals and crawling creatures.

24Therefore God gave them over in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, so that their bodies would be dishonored among them. 25For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

26For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, 27and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error.

28And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper, 29being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice; they are gossips, 30slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, 31without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful; 32and although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them.

Kari Ross

Her bio and photograph are on this page along with other “feminists”.
One thing you’ll notice right away: none of ‘em look like they would need birth control or abortions just like most feminists. In fact half look like lesbians which makes you wonder, why are they being feminzi’s for prettier eomen who might actually have a need for it...

“Murder Circus” would be more alliterative. And more accurate.
