Auntie Beeb’s biases are showing, eh, what?

July 31, 2009

Auntie Beeb – a.k.a. the BBC – is reporting that China is concerned about the number of abortions being performed in that Nation, blaming a lack of sex ed for what they are saying is a problem.

Note that, while there is a vague reference to a “quota” of children, there is not a single word in this article about China’s stringent one-child policy, which has resulted in countless abortions, even very late-term abortions, forced on women who don’t want them.

Such is the nature of the beast we’re dealing with – misrepresent the facts so that a problem is always someone else’s fault; refuse to accept personal responsibility.

False “Pro-woman” argument

Matt Bowman: “Should pro-lifers just care for women and stop trying to make abortion illegal?”

________________

Should the pro-life movement just care for women and stop trying to make abortion illegal? That idea is circulating among many Left-leaning Christians. The idea is flawed in several ways, first of all because the pro-life movement already cares for women through thousands of volunteer pregnancy resource centers. More fundamentally, there’s no conflict between caring for women and passing laws against abortion. Both efforts are complementary and necessary.

This is from 2 weeks ago but relevant.  It seems the President did not read his “take away” book.

Pope Presses Obama on Contentious Points

By STACY MEICHTRY and DAVIDE BERRETTA

[President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama meet with Pope Benedict XVI on Friday.] Associated PressPresident Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama meet with Pope Benedict XVI on Friday.

VATICAN CITY — Pope Benedict XVI pressed his case against abortion rights and embryonic stem-cell research during his first meeting with U.S. President Barack Obama, gently but firmly emphasizing the biggest conflicts between the White House and the Vatican.

The 35-minute meeting was a carefully choreographed event that aimed to set the tone for relations between the Vatican and the Obama administration. Like many U.S. presidents before him, Mr. Obama’s visit to the Vatican was an occasion to strengthen his credentials among religious voters, in particular the 67 million Roman Catholic Americans.

More Topix

If you”re tired of hearing about Topix skip this post.

a dialog went like this:

[QUOTE ]
Women in crisis? You mean the ones that some Pregnancy Crisis Centers convinced – it’ll be fine honey. Just have that baby. A real shame you don’t have health insurance. Looks like you’ll have to call Brother Matt and his league of helpers. Good luck hun, you made the right decision! [/QUOTE]

the reply:

We all do what we can.  If that sounds all too contrived and unrealistic for you then I think you have given up hope.

My mom worked as a volunteer for years at just such a place.  They did good work.  It was quantifiable.  GEDs earned.  Parenting skills taught.  Babies loved.  I would ask you to do the same BEFORE you send a girl to see an abortionist.

More than one church I know has an official policy to help moms who show up on the doorstep.  Period.  They work.  These are never perfect but what in life is?  (Hey if you’re going to the Salvation Army for a meal and a cot; you have to attend the sermon.  Its the price of admission.)  I would spend my money there and not on subsidizing abortion.

It’s not about party politics

July 23, 2009

Democratic Rep. Bart Stupak of Michigan and Republican Rep. Joe Pitts of Pennylvania co-hosted a press conference yesterday in which they focused on the hidden potential of the bill to require taxpayer-funded abortion coverage and threaten state and federal abortion regulations.

“This issue is not about party politics. It’s not about obstructionism. It is about saving lives and protecting pro-life Americans across the country,” said Rep. Pitts.

If the Senate will not be voting on the health care package prior to the August recess, we still don’t have time to be lazy; this is the time for us to write letters, talk with our neighbors and friends, and contribute to the groundswell of opposition to a bill which would mandate federal funding of Planned Parenthood, racial targetting, and other issues that we, as Christians, find wholly offensive and insupportable.
