A long time ago in a brain far far away, I was in favor of the Supreme Court ruling that allowed abortions to be performed nation wide. If my maturation since that time means anything, it means 18-year-old girls shouldn’t be allowed to vote – they have little or no sense in most cases.
HAVING matured and grown as a sentient human being, I now realize that – while I don’t believe abortion should be outlawed – the Supreme Court decision was…garbage. How that bunch managed to see a right to privacy that doesn’t exist in the Constitution AND equate it to ending a viable pregnancy AND take the right to make such decisions away from the state, I’ll never understand. Takes more twists of logic and word definition than even I can manage, and I can justify anything, given enough time and motivation.
Now, my esteemed FEDERAL goverment (hack! cough! spit.) actually provides abortions for almost anyone who wants one. I know more than one woman who uses this “choice” as birth control. It sickens me more than you can imagine. Because I’ve also given birth, you see. That baby was a baby for me from day one. Ditto for grandbaby. I am pro-Life and pro-Adoption. I’m pro-tubal-ligation, too. Why is it easier for a 20 year old girl to get an abortion than it is to get a tubal ligation?
Having also been the beneficiary of a life-saving therapeutic abortion, I don’t want abortion completely and totally banned, as there are times like mine when it’s necessary. I believe the decisions about such details should be left up to the individual states, that it’s not Uncle Sam‘s business.
Tim Tebow was the star quarterback for the Florida Gators, and led them to the National Championship. Twice. He’s handsome, intelligent, home-schooled, and a devout Christian son of devout Christian missionary parents. Tim Tebow and his dedicated-to-LIFE mother have filmed a commercial that is Pro-Life. It is to be shown during the greatest spectacle in television, the Super Bowl.
The National Organization for Women is among a group of women’s ‘rights’ advocates protesting this ad. I can’t figure out why. If it’s about a woman’s right to choose, shouldn’t women be told what their choices ARE?
Tebow said at a press conference Sunday that he hopes they respect the fact that he stands up for what he believes. I’m afraid he’s going to be sorely disappointed when he realizes they don’t give a rat’s rear what he stands up for unless it fits their agenda.
