Back in the day, I was one of the young women who marched for Women’s Rights. I proudly referred to myself as a Feminist, read all of the Betty Friedan books, was a founding member of the NOW chapter in my hometown, and more. I supported women having opportunities comparable to men, girls to boys, and to stop being seen as just our genitalia.
Well, the latter seems to be the exact opposite of what women THESE days want, as evidenced by the march this past weekend. Wearing images of genitalia on their heads and bodies seemed to be their prime objective, as well as trashing the streets on which they marched.
Oh, and only representing liberal Pro-Choice women. Pro-Life feminists were not allowed, certainly not on the endorsement level. And get this – unlike back in the day when our marches were inspired by women like Gloria Steinem, this most recent one had a Palestinian Pro-SHARIA LAW woman at the helm. Seriously. From The Federalist:
That hypocrisy shadows activist and National Co-Chair of the Women’s March Linda Sarsour. In the past Sarsour has railed against women spotlighting misogyny in the Muslim world. She openly advocates for including sharia law in the United States. Yet sharia law would dwarf her march’s half a million turnout to 250,000, because under sharia a woman’s testimony is worth half that of a man’s.
It is pro-life women who champion the greatest humanitarian issue: the right for all human life to exist. The Women’s March rages against building a wall along the border and expunging Muslims through an imaginary registry. Yet these women do not recognize the dignity of human life behind the wall of a uterus and radically defend their right to expunge that life when it’s convenient for them.The Women’s March mission statement advocates standing in solidarity to protect families, but it’s the right to life that is the first step in safeguarding the family. Protecting our children doesn’t begin when they’re on the street; it begins when they’re in the womb.The right to life is also sacred in Islam, which has very strict conditions for abortion. Yet Sarsour, who has carved a platform out of her Muslim identity, has debased that identity by openly defending the pro-choice movement, saying, “If you want to come to the march you are coming with the understanding that you respect a woman’s right to choose.” So which is it: is she pro-choice and not Muslim, or is she pro-life and no longer a leftist activist?

There’s that hypocrisy thing raising its ugly head again. It seems to be rampant in this regard.
And that Liberal Women’s hypocrisy allowed people like Kermit Gosnell, the “doctor” who butchered infants by performing very late term abortions, leeway for so long. Sadly, it turns out that he is not the only doctor who has acted like this. There is another doctor in Texas who has been exposed, too. I admit, I had to skip portions of the article because it was unfathomable to me that anyone could act like this, much less a doctor. From Townhall:
Well that was our answer until the recent publication of a report by the House Energy and Commerce Committee.
The investigation was spurred by the Baby Parts selling scandal revealed by undercover journalists from the Center for Medical Progress. The House Panel widened the investigation and looked at the activities of a Texas abortion provider. They redacted his name from the final report but the similarities with Gosnell and his house of horrors are stunning.
They have interviewed, taken evidence and secured affidavits from the Texas doctor’s employees and patients.
According to one employee, the doctor would perform around 40 late second, or third trimester abortions every week. Of these abortions “three to four infants would show signs of life.” And just like Gosnell, the doctor would immediately kill them. The employee said he employed Gosnell’s techniques of “snipping the infant’s spinal cord with scissors.” (Click here to read the rest.)
I can barely stomach even putting this up. How in the world could a human being do this? How in the hell was this doctor able to staff such a death chamber??
Appallingly, this is not the worst of it. It gets worse. I was going to try and put some more of the article up, but I just can’t. It about made me throw up to even glance at it just now. You can read what I cannot post HERE to get a fuller picture if you want.
And that all brings me to the SCOTUS and the restrictions people want on abortion. No doubt, the Women’s March excluding Pro-Life women did a grave disservice to almost half the citizens of this nation. And no doubt, the majority of citizens are happy about Trump’s recent EO regarding funding abortions abroad. Check out the results of this Marist Poll as reported in the Daily Wire:
59% of voters thought abortion is morally wrong. 83% of respondents oppose tax dollars to support abortion in other countries; 61% want to stop taxpayers from funding abortions in the United States. 87% of Trump supporters want the U.S. funding to stop, as opposed to 39% of Clinton supporters.
But even among Clinton supporters, 55% support limiting the period in which abortions are legal; 91% of Trump supporters agree. 74% of Americans overall want abortion restricted to the first trimester; 74% of those, amounting to 55% of Americans, want the Supreme Court to restrict the time period for abortions.
34% of voters said restricting abortion should be implemented immediately; another 25% fell it is important to implement restrictions. Remarkably, 44% of those who identify as pro-choice, say restricting abortion is an immediate priority or important. […] (Click here to read the rest.)
Well, thank heavens for that. Thank heavens the majority of Americans at least think abortions should be restricted to the first trimester. I could be wrong, but I would think that would greatly limit any opportunities for monsters like Gosnell and the Texas “doctor” to operate the way they did.
And if nothing else, this poll result highlights how out of touch these Million Women and their Hollywood shills are WAY out of the mainstream. Time for the media to catch up to that reality and stop acting lie these women, their Sharia Law organizer, and their Hollywood screamers are mainstream. They are not.
Time for us as taxpayers to stop having to pay for a procedure the vast majority do not support, too.
At least that’s what I think. How about you? This is an Open Thread.
