Planned Parenthood Continues Its Crusade Against Parents' Rights
Alright, so I'm a Christian. Recently, someone I work with has been asking me whether I oppose abortion in all situations, and if I support the overturning of Roe v. Wade. At the time I said I didn't know. I do fear that if it is overturned that it will lead to the forming of illegal abortion clinics and dangerous, amateur abortions. However, as a Christian, I do believe that an unborn fetus exists in a living state, and I believe I have an obligation to protect that. So yes, I support the overturning of Roe v. Wade, along with stricter enforcement of the law in instances where abortion is not legal, as overturning Roe v. Wade will not make abortion totally illegal.
As far as whether I oppose it in all situations, he asked me if I would abort my child if he or she posed a threat to my wife's life. I said I didn't want to allow an abortion ever, but I can't say what I would do in an emotional situation like that. I told him that while I believe that abortion is murder always, and that murder is a sin, I could never blame a man who ended his child's life to save his wife. I just can't judge a man like that.
So, that being said, I am wondering what liberals with children think about the parental notification case in New Hampshire? I mean, I know most liberals support a woman's right to choose, but is a 13 year old girl a woman? Should a young teenage girl be able to have an abortion without notifying her parents? New Hampshire says no, and so do I. Read The Whole Article Here!
Planned Parenthood is throwing a fit because of the lack of a medical emergency provision in the law, but can we just be honest? The only thing the Planned Parenthood people see is a gateway to even less restricting laws. And besides that, just what constitutes a medical emergency? I mean, I've had some pretty bad canker sores before and I'm sure if you had asked me, right after I bit my lip, whether I thought it was a medical emergency, I might've said yes. I'm sure PP would like to see some sort of ambiguous provision:
(Girl walks into Clinic)
Girl: I'm pregnant. I don't want it. I want an abortion.
PP: Can we call your parents?
Girl: I don't want them to find out.
PP: Okay, then. Go to the hospital and tell them you're sick to your stomach. Say that it's an emergency and you're sure your pregnancy is causing it. Then you can have an abortion!
I have to admit, it's hard to put myself into the shoes of someone who doesn't believe in unborn life. There are only two explanations: either these people just like seeing babies die, or in their minds it is honestly a thing and not a person, and neither way of thinking is acceptable.
I want to hear from some liberal parents about this. I know they are most likely pro-choice but do they think their daughter should, without exception, be obligated to tell them before undergoing an abortion?Breaking Down Bigotry! Yeah, right...
We all know that the separate labeling of religious holidays has been challenged for years. In the late nineties they changed the name of the Capital Christmas Tree to the Capital Holiday Tree. Thank God, they recently changed it back. I mean, I have nothing against Chanukah, or Kwanzaa, or whatever holiday you happen to celebrate, but, come on, it is
a Christmas tree! It's not a Chanukah tree, or a Kwanzaa tree, because the tree is a specific part of the Christian holiday called Christmas.
Someone called in to Hannity today and said she was offended that she could find no references specifically to Christmas anywhere in her local (Texas) Target or Wal-Mart, and that employees were not allowed to specifically reference the Christmas season. Now, first I have to say that if this woman is offended by that, than she should grant the right to Jews for not having specific references to Chanukah, or specific references to any other winter holiday for that matter.
However, I think that this is just getting insane. When we are too afraid to call strings of colored or white lights "Christmas lights", but will only call them something nebulous like "Holiday lights" for the fear that we will offend someone, then it's all gone too far. I don't know anyone who gets offended by a reference to Christmas, Chanukah, Kwanzaa, Ramadan, etc. If political correctness continues to corrode at our society we won't be able to separate any ideas. Everything will be just a lump of incongruent ideas.
Hannity assured the woman that he had contacted the highest authorities in each company and had found that neither held official policy banning references to Christmas. I'm sure he's right. Has anyone else heard anything about this or had any trouble at work or shopping because of this?
