Posted on 07/22/2017 5:50:48 AM PDT by Kaslin
What is feminism? If youd ask people on the street, the most common response would be equality. Yet at the darkened heart of todays faux feminism, there is no equality because its violently hostile to Life. You can dress it up in all the pink banners, euphemisms, and #ShoutYourAbortion tweet fests that youd like, but the truth cant be hashtagged over.
Without Life, there is no equality.
How many times must we go around this human value merry-go-round? You cant diminish and destroy any part of the human family and expect humanity to rise. Fannie Lou Hamer understood this. It was why she was so sick and tired of being sick and tired. She fought against a society that claimed land of the free, home of the brave yet too few were brave enough to stand up against a system of injustice that rendered part of the human family, less than human. Hamer, an unapologetically pro-life adoptive mother, denounced abortion as a form of genocide. She declared in a 1964 speech: The truth is the only thing going to free us.
By the way, Senator Cory Bookers recent absurd defense of Planned Parenthood (bizarrely comparing pro-abortion feminists to the courageous WWII soldiers who gave their lives to storm and take over Normandy Beach) was historically-challenged. He mistook Hamers famous sick and tired quote as Sojourner Truths words. Pro-abortion politicians like Booker will contort and distort anything to justify the slaughter of millions in this country by a billion-dollar abortion industry. Pro-slavery politicians did the same to defend the institution of slavery which barbarically treated another group of humans as dispensable property.
I have borne thirteen children, and seen most all sold off to slavery, and when I cried out with my mother's grief, none but Jesus heard me! And ain't I a woman? These words, which were from Sojourner Truth, show the mourning of a woman whose children were forcibly ripped away from her to profit an industry. How much more tragic, today, that children are ripped apart within and from their mothers in order to profit an industry? Modern (counterfeit) feminism preaches victimhood while celebrating violence against the actual victims.
Millions of women, however, defy this broken worldview. And I am honored to work with so many who elevate human dignity by defending the weakest among us. My amazing wife, Bethany Bomberger, is a powerful example to our four children as she dedicates her life to cherishing mothers and their children. These are remarkable women, mostly ignored by #fakenews media, but those who have helped to save millions of lives over the years. There is no way to provide an exhaustive list, but I wanted to highlight a handful in these Not You memes.
Learn more about and be inspired by these pro-life women who fight for the most basic human right: Lila Rose (President, Live Action), Obianuju Ekeocha (Founder, Culture of Life Africa), Jeanne Mancini (President, March for Life), Star Parker (Founder, Center for Urban Renewal & Education), Kristan Hawkins (President of Students for Life of America), Marjorie Dannenfelser (President, Susan B. Anthony List), Dr. Donna Harrison (President, American Association of Prolife OB-GYNs), Dr. Alveda King (Founder, Civil Rights for the Unborn). Cecile Richards, President of Planned Parenthood, is the Not You figure. Cant wait for her to experience a soul-changing transformation and become the one fighting for human rights, instead of aborting them.
All abortion is violence. This declaration is from the co-founder of NARAL ProChoice America, the late Dr. Bernard Nathanson. These female prolife championsjournalists, bloggers, speakersdo the job that mainstream media refuses to do; they tell the truth. We wouldnt know much about the abortion industry if it werent for: Sandra Merritt (Undercover Journalist, Center for Medical Progress), Cheryl Sullenger (Senior Vice President, Operation Rescue), Ann Scheidler, (Vice President, Prolife Action League), Katy Yoder (Journalist, Media Research Center), Michelle Malkin (Author/Journalist & Founder of Twitchy.com), Stephanie Gray (International Speaker, Must-See Talks at Google), Jill Stanek (Nurse/Blogger/National Campaign Chair, Susan B. Anthony List), and Catherine Davis (Speaker/Co-Founder, The National Black Prolife Coalition). MSNBCs Rachel Maddow, a Planned Parenthood Margaret Sanger Award, is the Not You figure. She represents what mainstream media has devolved intoopinionists who get awarded by the nations largest abortion chain to shill for the billion-dollar business. May she be liberated from her own confusion and embrace the only Truth that sets us free.
Prolife women span the spectrum of backgroundsadoptive moms, former Planned Parenthood Directors, lawyers, OB-GYNs, authors, abortion survivors, pregnancy help center directors and moremany of them are history-makers. Get to know these prolife women who rescue others from the injustice of abortion: Dr. Fred Bush (President, Medical Institute for Sexual Health), Catherine Glenn Foster (President, Americans United for Life), Judie Brown (Founder/President, American Life League), Carol Tobias (President, National Right to Life Committee), Day Gardner (Founder/President, National Black Prolife Union), Gianna Jessen (Abortion Survivor, Inspirationalist), Abby Johnson (Founder/President, And Then There Were None), Peggy Hartshorn (Founder/President of the Board, Heartbeat International). Faux feminist icon, Gloria Steinem, is the Not You figure. Maybe one day, instead of boasting I had an abortion, shell tell the world I had an awakening.
Saint Teresa of Calcutta once declared: The greatest destroyer of love and peace in the world is abortion. These pro-life women, from so many different walks of life, love people enough to speak the truth and invest their time, money, and hearts into the lives of the vulnerable. They, daily, endure the ridicule from the liberal news media, academia, and entertainment establishments. But many, around the globe, can thank them for their persistence, their compassion, their leadership for even saving their lives. The courage of these leaders is inspiring and serves as a great restorer of love and peace in a world thats been fooled into thinking the violence of abortion is equality.
The left adores abortion not because it is a manifestation of rights, but an indicia of power. That’s the real goal of the left. The power to take your rights, your property and, ultimately, your life. Consider the lies propagated by the Bolsheviks, Mao, Chavez, Castro, et al., “we will bestow freedom and prosperity”. It ALWAYS ends up being slavery and poverty, and yet most of the world continues to fall for it. We are on the verge of another Dark Age.
The following is quoted from the Liberty Fund Library "A Plea for Liberty: An Argument Against Socialism and Socialistic Legislation," edited by Thomas Mackay (1849 - 1912), Chapter 1, final paragraphs from Edward Stanley Robertson's essay, "The Impracticability of Socialism":
Note the writer's emphasis that the "scheme of Socialism" requires what he calls "the power of restraining the increase in population"--long the essential and primary focus of the Democrat Party in the U. S.:"I have suggested that the scheme of Socialism is wholly incomplete unless it includes a power of restraining the increase of population, which power is so unwelcome to Englishmen that the very mention of it seems to require an apology. I have showed that in France, where restraints on multiplication have been adopted into the popular code of morals, there is discontent on the one hand at the slow rate of increase, while on the other, there is still a 'proletariat,' and Socialism is still a power in politics.With "Progressive regressive cultists," isn't this the choice we must make--a path to tyranny or a possible path back to freedom in America?
"I have put the question, how Socialism would treat the residuum of the working class and of all classesthe class, not specially vicious, nor even necessarily idle, but below the average in power of will and in steadiness of purpose. I have intimated that such persons, if they belong to the upper or middle classes, are kept straight by the fear of falling out of class, and in the working class by positive fear of want. But since Socialism purposes to eliminate the fear of want, and since under Socialism the hierarchy of classes will either not exist at all or be wholly transformed, there remains for such persons no motive at all except physical coercion. Are we to imprison or flog all the 'ne'er-do-wells'?
"I began this paper by pointing out that there are inequalities and anomalies in the material world, some of which, like the obliquity of the ecliptic and the consequent inequality of the day's length, cannot be redressed at all. Others, like the caprices of sunshine and rainfall in different climates, can be mitigated, but must on the whole be endured. I am very far from asserting that the inequalities and anomalies of human society are strictly parallel with those of material nature. I fully admit that we are under an obligation to control nature so far as we can. But I think I have shown that the Socialist scheme cannot be relied upon to control nature, because it refuses to obey her. Socialism attempts to vanquish nature by a front attack. Individualism, on the contrary, is the recognition, in social politics, that nature has a beneficent as well as a malignant side. . . .
"Freedom is the most valuable of all human possessions, next after life itself. It is more valuable, in a manner, than even health. No human agency can secure health; but good laws, justly administered, can and do secure freedom. Freedom, indeed, is almost the only thing that law can secure. Law cannot secure equality, nor can it secure prosperity. In the direction of equality, all that law can do is to secure fair play, which is equality of rights but is not equality of conditions. In the direction of prosperity, all that law can do is to keep the road open. That is the Quintessence of Individualism, and it may fairly challenge comparison with that Quintessence of Socialism we have been discussing. Socialism, disguise it how we may, is the negation of Freedom. That it is so, and that it is also a scheme not capable of producing even material comfort in exchange for the abnegations of Freedom, I think the foregoing considerations amply prove." EDWARD STANLEY ROBERTSON
When the role of the "Creator" and the ongoing "hand of Divine Providence" and "Supreme Judge of the world," as understood by America's Founders and Framers of its Constitution, is diminished and eliminated by those foolish cultists, what will America have left?
