My body, my right!
We’ve heard the slogan time and again. People pretend that because a baby is within a woman’s body that the baby is part of her body. It’s a lie but it is an abortion-rights advocate’s creed.
Notice, this has nothing to do with the genetic connection. The husband who contributes half the genetic material to the baby has no say in the decision. According to the slogan, “Abortion is a decision between a woman and her doctor,” a doctor–even a male doctor–is more important to the decision than the father. Besides legalizing abortion, the Supreme Court declared all children legally fatherless.
The entire case for abortion is that the woman is the sovereign master of everything in her uterus.
Which make this case very interesting. The New York Post reports,
A second surrogate mom carrying triplets and being pressured to abort one of her fetuses is sticking to her guns in a desperate bid to save the unborn child.
The biological parents “knew from the beginning that we wouldn’t want to abort unless it was a life-and-death situation,” anguished surrogate Brittneyrose Torres told The Post.
“We would never want to abort a baby’s life.”
Torres, 26, of Thousand Oaks, Calif., agreed to tell her story after seeing The Post’s report last month about another surrogate mom, Melissa Cook, who was being pressured to abort one of the triplets she was carrying. She, too, refused.
After reading that story, Torres reached out to The Center for Bioethics and Culture Network, a surrogacy watchdog, in an effort to fight the abortion demand. Torres is 17 weeks pregnant.
She was initially implanted with two fertilized eggs, in hopes that one of them would develop. Both did, and one split in half, making twins — a not-uncommon occurrence during in vitro fertilization. The twins are male and the third child is female.
“We did not think we would be in this position,” Torres said.
The murderous parents have cut off their payments to Torres.
So if you were wondering what the endgame is, for the Obama Administration and other liberals, now you know. Destroy legal recognition for freedom of conscience to refuse to participate in abortion, as is happening under Obamacare, is only one step toward the goal.
Ultimately they want to be able to order people to have abortions.
Remember, the purpose of abortion has always been eugenics. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Gingburg told us so (though there is lots of other evidence): “At the time Roe was decided, there was concern about population growth and particularly growth in populations that we don’t want to have too many of.”
This is the plan. Liberals aren’t even coy about it.
