America’s Shameful Pogrom Against The Unborn, and Now The Just-Born!

America’s Shameful Pogrom Against The Unborn, and Now The Just-Born!

The word pogrom is not a common one for many.

It is a word that stands for an organized massacre of a large number of people..usually referencing a class of people such as the Jews in Nazi Germany, for example.  Pogroms are often mass killings that are focused upon people of a certain race or religion.

In America, such a thing would be Constitutionally forbidden and it would be “politically incorrect”……with the exception of one class of human beings that is the most helpless and politically powerless of all. And, this helps to explain why they are being salughtered by the millions. An  estimated total of 54,559,615 abortions have been performed in America since Roe vs. Wade, in 1974

These are the  unborn infants, the partial birth infants and now, the “just-born infants”.

Liberals and progressives commonly use the “slippery slope” concept to argue against any infringement upon the rights they cherish the most: The ones that protect them from the consequences of their own self-centered and irresponsible behavior.

Of course this slippery slope can “slip”  in both conservative and liberal directions this is a danger for all.

Witness the legal killing of infants before their third trimester, the legal killing of them just when their heads exit the birth canal (so-called partial-birth abortion), which has now “slipped” to newborn babies , whimpering on a table and allegedly then having their heads cut off.

A lady recently argued with me advocating “women’s rights to abortion”, she used a couple of old tried and untrue arguments. The first argument was:

1. “Women have a right to do what they want with their own bodies”.

Actually, no one in this culture has the right to do “what they want with their bodies”.  

If anyone is in the process of attempting to kill themselves (women included), the police can legally intervene to stop them and they can be taken, against their will, to a mental hospital. There they will receive a psychological/psychiatric assessment, perhaps medication treatment, and be provided therapeutic treatment.

The fact is, it is generally against the “best interests” of the State and society-large for people to go off and kill themselves just because they want to do so. There for it is illegal to do so.

The second argument was:

2.  “Before abortions were legalized,  women commonly got abortions in bad places (“back alleys”) and frequently died or were maimed in the process”.

This matter is a complex issue and I invite you to read the following article. It is important to read it all..and especially that last two paragraphs. The argument is not supported in America.

In the final analysis, the facts are that a vocal and well-organized political-action coalition achieved its goal of setting both men and women free from the consequences of their own irresponsible and self-centered sexual behavior. 

In doing so they legalized the massacre of millions of infants, who have no well-organized, highly motivated political action coalition to unleash to protect themselves.

If we could magically equip the unborn with all of these capabilities, abortion would be illegal.

All of that aside. Look now at what the legalization of abortion has evolved to be in America. This was always predictable and that is one of many good reasons abortion was illegal in the first place.

Please read and consider the following carefully.

The Grave Consequences of Choice


It could be weeks until a jury decides Gosnell’s fate, but for some of the teary-eyed witnesses in the Kermit Gosnell trial, they’re already living with a life sentence of regret. Many will never recover from what they saw inside those brick walls–or the role they played in the nightmare. Whatever the judge decides, there is no escaping their personal prison of memories of babies softly whimpering or their tiny chests moving up and down.

For Kareema Cross, one of Gosnell’s younger employees, the images are still haunting. A mother now, she told the court that she left her job after having her own child and tried reporting Gosnell to authorities. During her time on Lancaster Street, she testified that she saw 10 babies born alive before they were killed. “Did you ever see those babies move?” the Assistant District Attorney asked. “Yes,” Kareema said, “once in the toilet.” The baby was “swimming,” she responded quietly, “basically trying to get out.”

Her story echoed through the courtroom, where the clinic’s filthy furniture was on display. Conditions were “so terrible,” Latosha Lewis remembers, that she “handled patient charts with gloves because of the amount of blood and other bodily fluids on them.” If only patients could have taken the same precautions from the foul environment. According to Lewis, Gosnell reused curettes after abortions, the sharp-ended tube that penetrates the womb and helps suctions out tissue. Lewis said that several women who had abortions came back to the clinic suffering from sexually transmitted diseases they caught from the dirty instruments.

Some patients never experienced the curettes, because workers had given them a heavy dose of Cytotec instead. The drug, which sped up contractions and made them more excruciating, usually “left abortion patients cramping and in pain before spontaneously aborting on the floor and in toilets,” Lewis recounted. Later, some of those same remains would be washed down a drain and ground in the garbage disposal. These are the harrowing stories the defense will have to overcome, starting next Monday when an attorney will try to repair the damage done by gruesome photographs and eye-witness accounts.

And while the prosecution rests–the pro-life forces in other states refuse to. Spurred on by what many have heard or read about the clinic, leaders are moving at a frantic pace to stop the Gosnells in their states from preying on future victims. State house after state house made news this week by putting tighter protections in place for vulnerable mothers and children. Ensuring his state’s place in the pro-life elite, North Dakota Governor Jack Dalrymple (R) signed his name to a measure that would ban abortions at the moment–20 weeks–when unborn children can suffer pain.

In Florida, the legislature raced into action, voting unanimously to stop monsters like Gosnell from murdering babies born alive. With stunning support, 119-0, the bill (HR 1129) now heads to the Florida Senate. And the Sunshine State wasn’t done yet. It followed up the vote by pushing a measure out of the House that would make it a separate crime to kill an unborn child along with its pregnant mother. Under this proposal, the term “unborn child” would include babies at any stage of development (unlike the current law, which only charges people with a separate crime if the child is far enough along to survive outside the womb.) Another bill on the fast track would not only ban sex- or race-selection abortion, but make it a third-degree felony.

The Buckeye state also got moving on a full slate of pro-life bills, including a new budget proposal that would defund Planned Parenthood and redirect that money to pregnancy resource centers (which, unlike Cecile Richards’s group, can be trusted with taxpayer funds). Equally impressive, Ohio is also pushing forward on a sex education amendment that encourages the abstinence-only approach and bans any liberal sex ed that condones or advocates for “any gateway sexual activity or experiment.” Teachers would also be barred from handing out condoms or partnering with organizations like Planned Parenthood who promote risky sexual activity.

No piece of legislation can bring Gosnell’s victims back to life. But for all of the unspeakable evils he committed, we can resolve one thing: to honor those who died by doing everything in our power to stop it from happening again.

End of Article.

I support legal abortions only in the case of rape pregnancy and when the life of the pregnant mother is at significant risk with a continued pregnancy.

It is far more responsible, humane and moral for America to return to the traditional solutions to unwanted pregnancies of increased adoptions to good homes and, where necessary, closely supervised group homes for children without parents.
