Someone posted a picture on social media just last night that would cause the most leftist in the world to think twice about their stance on abortion.
Some man dug through a dumpster behind a Planned Parenthood, removing dozens of aborted fetuses displaying them all in such a way as to create an emotional riptide. Either you would be swayed for or against with no room in the middle. In fact, you would have to be pretty depraved to not see this as an act against humanity.
I won’t post the picture, but many of those babies looked very late term. Working in Neo-Natal, I have seen preemies smaller than them who are alive today!
He even went so far as to put opened juice boxes in some of the trays which contained the babies.
He humanized the fetuses to drive once again the point home that these are babies and not lumps of tissue like a cancerous tumor.
The end of the story is he is going to give them all a decent burial instead of them being tossed in the dumpster with the empty pizza boxes, plastic straws, and Styrofoam cups.
Decent human being, or provocateur?
I would argue both.
This is the world we live in today. This is why we cannot have an intelligent conversation on any topic. From guns to an invasion on our borders, the community organizers of the world have made it to where we are close to civil war as we can no longer see eye to eye on anything.
When I was young, there were two issues you did not talk about. Women’s lib and religion.
Why? Both are fraught with emotion, and few can debate the topics without “feelings.”
The travel ban was recently upheld by the supreme court on the narrowest of margins, why?
The constitution clearly states the president has that right.
A judge in Hawaii strikes it down because of what?
The judge took the then “candidate Trumps rhetoric” and put an emotional spin on it, and became an activist himself causing more consternation and civil discourse tearing at the fabric of this country.
The judge on the ninth circuit was wrong, his logic was skewed, and I think his ex-boss and college roommate provoked his decision to act as a way to community organize. We know for a fact that he was visited by him right before he interjected his stupid argument.
Community organizing is in short tapping into our tribal instinct through the manipulations of your emotions. Pro-life shows a bunch of aborted babies in a dumpster, pro-choice shows some disenfranchised women who now must resort to a coat hanger in an alley.
OF course, there is no middle ground because you must be corralled into one camp or the other. Which community are you part of?
When one becomes a judge no matter what the issue, the judge is to interpret the laws and that is what the magistrate makes a ruling on. Emotions or feelings are not part of the decision process.
That, however, is not the case as we see time after time. It is all about emotions and screws the constitution of at least half the country. Either I get it my way or you all are bigots, racists, deplorable and I could go on. When the conversation turns into name calling the person calling the names knows they don’t have any ammunition, they are wrong so the megaphone and name calling is their tactic.
How many times have murderers been let free because of some technicality in the law or some juror was swayed by some lawyer who knew how to push his or her emotional buttons to create that ever so handy “beyond the shadow of a doubt.”
Yes, it took over a year for the supreme court to come up with a 5 to 4 decision on something that is apparently in the president’s bailiwick to do. The fact that four of the supreme court justices weighed in against the president tells you the state of our country. The law is clear period. They should not be judges.
If Judges were to do their job without feelings, without being an activist, it would make no difference if a liberal or conservative picked them, hence the flaw in our judiciary system. Feelings are irrelevant.
Supreme court Justices should be held accountable and should be able to be fired. I think they can be impeached, but I do not pretend to know the mechanism of that or what would constitute the reason for that action. They, in fact, need a boss that can keep them to a higher standard then what they hold themselves to.
Without this you have a non-elected branch of the government making laws that you must follow and they are there like so many other third world countries, for life!
That is true of any judge, who steps outside of his or her boundaries.
“Here is the case, here is the case law, This is how the constitution regards it, what say you?”
I want to put a different spin on abortion that might upset some of you but that is what we do isn’t it. We talk about controversial subjects, and we try to do it without injecting our personal beliefs. Once you are locked in on your own opinions or feelings, you are closed to the possibility that you are wrong.
Full disclosure, I lean pro-life. I lean that way rather hard because someone needs to stand up for the child. Someone needs to stand up for those who cannot speak for themselves. Having said that, is abortion always a bad idea?
I will not (NOT) allow the argument that it is a woman’s body and therefore it is her right to choose. If you get aids or some other STD from unwise sexual conduct can you just “decide” not to have a terminal illness? Nobody has a right to kill another or take another’s life. Where would it stop if they did? We have seen many mothers or parents kill their children, was it her choice and right? She brought them into the world is it her right to take them out? I could easily make the argument it was. “She stayed out late past curfew too many times, so I killed her. Her actions were giving my family a bad name; she had to die. She was defective. End of story.”
Here is the twist.
There was a video on social media of a mother tossing her half-naked daughter off the couch. When the child started to cry she viscously beat the child. As the child continued to cry, she kicked her and then stood on her so she could not get air into her lungs to cry.
The video was hard to watch, and yes, I would have had no problems with locking the woman up right there and then. I would argue the death penalty, and I would volunteer to push the plunger or pull the trigger. Defective people like that need to be out of society and, if not rehabilitatable, sent back to the manufacturer, GOD, to see what went wrong.
This was my emotional response. It made me sick and angry. At that moment, I was enraged.
What should justice look like for her?
In the case of a sick person such as this who are so selfish that they opt to abort, would it not be kinder for the child not to be given to such a person?
This issue has caused me many sleepless nights as I can see a case to allow seriously stuffed up women to abort their babies.
There are so many ways to keep from having an “unplanned” pregnancy but, we have people who will flirt with aids, flirt with death at the end of a needle, and of course, do drugs and smoke while carrying a baby.
I have not interviewed anyone at planned parenthood, but just maybe they are pragmatic about this like I am trying to be in this “twist” on the issue.
Is that why the dumpster is full of dead babies?
Are they not babies?
They look like babies, you can clearly see that they were humans, how can you disassociate yourself from the baby aspect of what this is? How can you as a doctor who is not to harm, kill babies still in the womb?
Should the babies in that dumpster belong in that dumpster? How many women have carried full term and then tossed the baby into a trash? Too many to count. How cheap is life?
Often I find that those that kill, find that life is pretty cheap until it is theirs on the wrong end of a needle.
If a woman wants an abortion, the chances are good that she is not going to be a great mother so just maybe it is kinder to the child.
I realize this is emotional dynamite and that is why we have the rhetoric today by the leftist regarding this SCOTUS pick.
Roe V Wade will not be overturned. On the off chance that it is then the states will be forced to deal with it like they are dealing with legalized pot. Maybe that is the right answer.
The bottom line is elections have consequences and the leftist in this country lost.
Until you strip all of the layers of the onion back, you cannot know what you are dealing with. Decisions, where laws are concerned, must be made without fear mongering or empathy. I can be sympathetic to your cause, but if I am empathetic,, I put myself in your shoes and not the shoes of the collective or the masses.
This is why a pick for a Supreme Court Justice must be made in a very practical matter.
I hope you enjoy the fourth of July and for those of you in other countries thanks for reading my take on things.
As always feel free to comment.
I spend hours on these blogs as I want them to be thought-provoking and open up a dialogue on just about any subject. No subject should be off the table.
My novels are selling nicely, but I still have a day job… If you haven’t read my work, why not?
Seriously I am 50 K words into my latest thriller, and it is coming along great!
