The only absolute right that liberals believe in is the absolute right of a woman to murder her unborn.
NARAL Opposes Bill Banning Abortions After 20 Weeks Nationwide
***Of course they do. And of course, we oppose them. From my home page:
Ive posted this in a couple of places and it doesnt seem to get much more than a yawn, even though its kinda-sorta an incremental approach.
I believe a fetus is a human being who deserves protection under the law from being killed.
***I do too. That fetus deserves protection extended by the state.
I do wonder if it is biblical to extend full protection to a fetus? I.e. when a man hurts a pregnant woman, hes expected to pay an eye for an eye & a tooth for a tooth. But if the unborn baby is killed, the price is not the same.
Perhaps it is time to consider a 3 (or even 4) tiered system of protection.
Tier 1: Living, viable, late term baby which will not be aborted unless the life of the mother is at stake.
Tier 2: Living, not-yet-viable pre-born human who should have the right to protection and life and a safe womb to which it can attain viability. Cannot be aborted unless there is an open rape case associated with the pregnancy or the life of the mother is at stake.
Tier 3: Living, early stage, not yet viable pre-born human for whom we do not extend the rights of life in this society because of a historical snag where we once considered such tissue not to be a baby. We as a society thought it was best to consider it a private decision. I personally do not believe in Tier3 abortions, but I can understand that there are many who think it is a right to choose at this stage. It may be time to consider a program where the woman declares her pregnancy and intent to abort. Our societal function at this point would be to provide a family that is willing to adopt this baby and to put up this woman for 6-8 months in a safe environment so the baby can grow and maybe the woman can learn some life skills. If our society cannot muster the forces necessary to save this baby, the woman has the sickening right to abort this pregnancy. Time for us to put up or shut up.
With a 3-tiered plan in place, women would stop using abortion as a means of birth control. Millions of lives would be saved. We would extend the right to life to every human that we have resources to save. Unfortunately, if we cannot put up the resources to save the Tier3 babies, we still would have this horrible practice staining our nations soul.

A serious question here.
Why does it take a woman 20 weeks to decide she wants an abortion?
Why can’t she make up her mind in 3 months?
Until NARAL and the mentality that supports it, is gone from this culture, God will withhold His Grace and Blessings.
Just FYI, despite the incoming “it’s a state rights issue” crowd, I will refer such posters to the 14th Amendment and section 5 of said Amendment which gives Congress the authority to effectuate the purposes of the Amendment.
I think a lot of people enjoy killing babies because they’re too small to fight back.
Abortion is close to being aborted.
They sure don’t like it when their livelihood is about to be aborted.
If we can get every single abortionist investigated, we will see that ALL of them, ALL of them, are like Gosnell. To one degree or another. Gosnell and this new gal are proving scum settles into abortionist positions, and that THEY ARE THE NORM. Not the exception at all.
They are as RARE as abortions are when pro-aborts talk about wanting abortion to be rare (over 1 million a year).
abortion clinics aren’t obeying the laws NOW, another one is useless.
Good God... can’t these “women” who insist on having a dead baby just download a pic of one from the internet as the next “best” thing?
Damned feminazis make me puke.
Unless the unmarried mother is pregnant.
"pro-choice" and "reproductive rights" are handy euphemisms for the abortion advocates.
