Here’s something sure to be familiar for many in the pro-life movement. Since I began my pro-life activism, I’ve often been chided by family members and friends for using the term pro-abortion. “No one is really ‘pro-abortion,’” they argue, “that’s why we call ourselves ‘pro-choice.’” This has never seen like much of an argument, rather, it comes across as a refusal to acknowledge the truth out of fear.
“I almost felt like I was throwing the baby at the nurses, like ‘quick!’ and the team just responded immediately!”
In the on-going debate over taxpayer funding of abortion businesses like Planned Parenthood, there is a notion that the only medical problems experienced by women concern their reproductive system.
In light of the alleged “War on Women,” Arizona State Rep. Terri Proud wrote a press release confidently expressing her pro-life, pro-woman position. Rep. Proud explained that as a woman in office defending the dignity of human life, she herself has faced numerous name-calling attacks – everything from “ignorant” to “anti-woman” from the very same people now crying foul about the so-called “war.”
There’s been a lot of whining recently from the pro-abortion media and media watch dogs over conservative’s treatment of Planned Parenthood. In a frustrating -- but unfortunately not surprising – abdication of journalistic responsibility, these Planned Parenthood sympathizers either cannot or will not understand the position of the pro-life American majority, opting rather to trust blindly in the nation’s largest abortion provider.
