Sen. Barbara Boxer says women will die President Bush nominates a pro-life judge to the Supreme Court.
Five thousand women a year will die if President Bush nominates a pro-life judge to the Supreme Court that's the claim of liberal U.S. Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif. And it's just a sample of the ramped-up rhetoric you can expect as Bush prepares to nominate a replacement for the retiring Sandra Day O'Connor.
Douglas Johnson, legislative director for the National Right to Life Committee, said Boxer's claim of 5,000 deaths, made to an Associated Press reporter, pure fantasy.
"Senator Boxer's reliance on such an urban legend doesn't do her any credit," he said. "Dr. Bernard Nathanson, who was one of the three founders the National Abortion Rights Action League, wrote a book some years ago in which he admitted he and the other early founders of NARAL had fabricated this figure."
Serrin Foster, president of Feminists for Life of America, said she wonders who's doing the senator's fact-checking.
"Whoever the staffer was that fed her this erroneous, unsubstantiated number needs to be fired," she said, "and Barbara Boxer needs to make a retraction."
Carrie Gordon-Earll, senior analyst for bioethics at Focus on the Family Action, said it's no surprise that the pro-abortion community is using Roe v. Wade as a panic button.
"There are no statistics to back up that type of inflammatory statement," she noted. "Very clearly, Senator Boxer is doing this to try to scare people into supporting a more liberal justice to the Supreme Court.
"If and when the court overturns Roe v. Wade, that merely sends . . . the abortion issue back to the states. It doesn't make abortion illegal in all 50 states."
Has Boxer noticed the millions of unborn citizens who have been slaughtered since Roe v. Wade became the law of the land?
That's just what I was going to write. Doesn't Boxer realize the irony of her statement?
Pro life = death.
What goes on in the synapses of these socialists that leads them to always arrive at the wrong conclusion?
How do they ignore the millions of deaths causes by the pro death position??.....oops, I meant pro choice of course.
Dr. Nathanson's expose has been extensively linked on FR a while back. Very good reading.
Barbara Boxer...the biggest babykiller in the US Senate. She's terminally embarrassing.
His book was one of the things that converted me from the pro-abort position.
Thanks for the great comment!
As I recall, there was an article by him, along with some links that supported his position and the general pro life position, also.
Later on, I'll try some key words and search to find the thread.
Also the most successful criminal in California history. More that 400 bad checks, not a day in jail and promoted from congress to the senate.
We need to remind them (and ourselves, obviously) that WE WON!!! We are the majority, WE WON!!!!!!
Winners = US!!!
Losers = THEM!!!
Can her reputation get any lower?
'...Barbara Boxer needs to make a retraction."
Yeah. That'll happen.
Vitriolic hatred does not recognize irony. That would require some sort of reflection. They have no time to reflect. They are on a mission to destroy, they will simply rewrite truth if they ever conquer.
"Very clearly, Senator Boxer is doing this to try to scare people into supporting a more liberal justice to the Supreme Court."
For STARTERS it's the PRESIDENT who gets to pick BECAUSE HE WON! Special interest groups, and everyday people really have no say in the matter, lest we come from states that have Senators and Congresscritters that actually abide by and support what we believe in. (Sadly, I do not fall amongst those lucky few; I have Kohl, Baldwin & Feingold "representin'" me. Barf!)
Secondly, when you have no platform other than one of death and destruction to children and the nuclear family, I guess ya gotta beat the sheeple over the head with scare tactics.
I can't remember a time in my relatively short history when Liberal/Progressive/Socialist/Democrats were more repugnant to me. Maybe I'm just paying too much attention to them these days when what they need is to just be swatted away like flies on the picnic potato salad?
Is it about 43 million they've murdered in the past 30 years or better? At least HALF or more were "potential" women. That means BB and her gang have aided the slaughter of 22.5 million women....most of who would be active, productive citizens; paying taxes to support her sorry rear-end. /rant
Jeez, you f"rggin idiot...at least those 5,000 will have had a choice in the matter. vs. the millions who have no voice in the decision.
Barbara Boxer has been a shrieking nitwit her entire political career, and it reflects very badly upon the voters of California that she hasn't been thrown out with the rest of the trash in this state.
If anyone has the transcript from Rush's excellent slam of Boxer, please post it here. Also, his answer to the gentle lib caller in the same hour was equally as fine.
Oh nooooo. All the American women are gonna DIE!!! The earths gonna freeze...er....burn up....er something, and we're all gonna DIE!!! Everyone is out of work, so we're all gonna have to eat dirt and DIE!!!!!! And.......
Hey. Wait a minute. She didn't say anything about all the beautiful babies that would be saved. She's got it all backwards again. Millions would be saved.
Whoops, that was Rush's putdown of her remarks on the WOT. Still, I'd like to read how he handled Boxer's misstatements about the left's WOL.
Now, either Barbara Boxer is too stupid to recognize this fact, or she does realize it but she's hysterically lying in order to whip her base into a froth. She's capable of either possibility.
