A Wisconsin congresswoman is celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision that allowed virtually unlimited abortions throughout pregnancy for any reason. With a comment that is sure to make pro-life people roll their eyes, Rep. Gwen Moore says the decision resulting in nearly 56 million abortions affirms motherhood.

Moore made the comments in an interview on the liberal cable news network MSNBC.

This is the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the ability for women to have a safe and legal abortion. But it really is 40 years of affirming motherhood. And to say, as we’ve said in our oath of office that we take, it should be done willfully without purpose of evasion and that we go into it mindful of the responsibility that is ahead of us. Parenting is difficult on your best day. And it doesn’t serve children, and it certainly doesn’t serve women to be forced into parenthood. And I think this is what the public has come to understand. That safe, legal abortions are very important for the health of children, women, the institution of motherhood, family, and ultimately to our society. The costs to our society are tremendous when children are unwanted or their parents are unprepared to take on this tremendous responsibility.

This isn’t the first time Moore has made a shocking comment related to abortion.

She was the abortion advocate who made waves during the debate leading up to the vote on de-funding the Planned Parenthood abortion business who implied it is better for unborn children to die in abortions than grow up having to live poor and  “eating Ramen noodles” and “mayonnaise sandwiches.”



Day Gardner, the head of the National Black Pro-Life Union, took on Moore at the time:

Let me get this straight; Rep. Gwen Moore (D-WI) says if the federal government stops funding Planned Parenthood, hungry, crying children will need to eat the Ramen noodles and mayonnaise sandwiches to fill their little bellies.

So, Gwen, what you are implying is–it’s better to fund an organization whose core business includes killing off our children by abortion rather than allowing the children to ‘suffer’ through the enjoyment of eating Ramen noodles?

Gwen, I am grew up one of seven children. My mother talks about how when we were little, she had to really stretch meals when times were tough for her and my dad. The funny thing is we all remember Mother as a greatest cook ever!

And just FYI: I helped raise my sister’s three children on a very mediocre salary. For three years our family of six included my son, two nephews, a niece and my husband and me. We all ate quite well on 70 dollars a week–that’s $10 a day. Gwen, I know 50 ways to cook pasta. Our meals were filling, cheap and very, very tasty.

Representative Moore, I have one last thing to say: Try this recipe. Cook Ramen noodles as usual–drain. Sprinkle the season pack over the drained noodles–toss and enjoy. Try the same recipe adding diced chicken, fresh veggies when available, but frozen or canned veggies work, too. Yum!

Oh, and don’t even get me started on mayonnaise sandwiches–a childhood favorite.
