Fighting the Democrat’s Pro-Abortion Platform

What to do if you are running a candidate with the worst approval ratings in history? Make the 2024 election about abortion, the one item guaranteed to bring out the Democrat in liberal women all across the country. Scott Ott thinks we can do a lot better job of presenting the pro-baby side of the story than we have so far.

Impact of abortion on the current situation: China implemented a “one child” law some years ago. Of course, families wanted to have boys, so much of a generation of female fetuses were aborted. This has resulted in a surplus of males of that generation. Meanwhile, closer to home, leftists have advocated for unlimited, taxpayer-funded abortion on demand. Now, the left has opened our borders to the entire world. One justification for this articulated by leftists cites the decreasing birth rate in the US, requiring that anyone who can get here should be fast-tracked to citizenship to compensate. Have you noticed… Read more »

Of course there are moral issues involved but bemoaning the morality of others is a little bit like standing on a hill watching a river valley flood. You can wring your hands and cry all you like, it’s not going to make any difference. If it were up to you the dikes and levees would have been built and maintained. The sandbags all filled and standing ready for a breech. But it’s not up to you. You can’t do anything about the flood you tried to stop but happens anyway. Oh, you can enjoy the hell out of standing on… Read more »

Single motherhood needs to be shamed again. If the stigma of pregnancy outside of wedlock was restored, the feminist crusade to multiply degeneracy would fizzle. It is not loving to allow promiscuous wmen to think their promiscuity preclude them from being decent human beings. These Satan-worshiping, bloodthirsty, savages who believe that a mother should be allowed to slaughter their own child need to be named for what they are.

Indiana has some of the strictest rules on abortion, some of the best free pre-natal programs, and is working on low- or no-cost adoption. That’s what’s needed to counter the culture of adoption as birth control, along with the argument that no, it’s not your body!

For the sake of clarity when you wrote “[t]hat’s what’s needed to counter the culture of adoption as birth control, …”, did you actually intend to write the following?

That’s what’s needed to counter the culture of abortion as birth control, …”

If you didn’t, then that is fine; however, I will then be confused by the point.

Pardon my use of an old saw but, ‘It takes two to tango’. The ‘father’ needs to be held just as accountable as the ‘mother’. Stuff happens, but we must stand up.
As an aside, think about all those who have been murdered as a result of war. Who have we, as human beings, lost to murder? ………

We really do need to look at revising the adoption rules in this country and culturally make a surrogate mother sort of system more accepted. With the hue and cry about rape victims needing access to abortion, it would be an easy argument that couples wishing to adopt are already willing and able to pay the medical bills, and are spending even more traveling out of the country to adopt kids from China and 3rd world places. I think the counter to the argument about wealthy countries having fewer children when they should be able to afford them is not… Read more »

I think you’re right about revamping the adoption rules and proceedures. The way things stand now you have to be fairly wealthy to adopt a child. It’s one of the ways Leftist elite women satisfy their maternal instincts and propagate without losing their girlish figure. I think the thing about kids in fancy restaurants is less an issue of their presence and more an issue of their behavior. The kind of person that never wants to even see a child is also the kind of person who would enjoy kicking puppies. That’s a little bit different than the person who… Read more »

I can understand some of the rules are required to make sure someone that shouldn’t have kids isn’t adopting one. Regarding restaurants I was mostly thinking from the couple pre-child point of view. Not being able to go out or otherwise living a life of leisure, a do what you want when you want life not tied down to the schedule of a baby or babysitter is as much a reason for the DINK types as the financial burden. There are some number of families that could afford kids but don’t want them for a number of reasons that I… Read more »

“I can understand some of the rules are required to make sure someone that shouldn’t have kids isn’t adopting one.” This is very true. I’ve personally seen the results of people who were unfit to adopt yet were allowed to do so anyway. Besides the financial ability to support and raise children there are other, equal considerations. I don’t know how to go about testing for innate latent moral turpitude and psychological unfitness to be a parent but I think some work should be put into this sort of thing too. There are people who adopt kids as fashion accessories,… Read more »

Years ago (a decade plus at this point) when Ronette was a dancer, I noticed that one of the mothers always seemed to be pregnant. I say seemed as my dad taught me to never, ever ask a woman if she was pregnant. So I asked my child how many kids she had. She looked at me with that expression unique to Jr HS girls – a mixture of shock, bemusement, and dismay (that her dad was not as all-knowing as she thought) and said – Dad, she’s a surrogate. Come to find out that after having 3 of her… Read more »

Yes, with this kind of system already in place and with an unwanted pregnancy versus a woman who might change her mind after carrying the child, there should be less need for abortion. I suspect it is more a “ME” issue though, people wanting to do what they want and not being forced into anything at all.

“If it feels good, do it.”

Wasn’t that one of the many hedonistic mantras of the Playboy scene in 1960’s and 70’s? Of course, it has evolved, but the underlying mindset of zero personal responsibility has matured to a point that rivals the Ancient Romans. It seems to me that the patterns of human history are easily described as an ongoing replay of days gone by.

I know of a young woman who went the surrogacy route after having two children of her own, because she enjoyed being pregnant. But in her case after that third birth, the doctors told her for health reasons she should not get pregnant again. I good solution in some regards, but not risk free.

The whole democrat meme these days is destroy, destroy, destroy. There are ‘good’ democrats, as there are ‘good’ Republicans and ‘good’ Americans of no party, but there are not enough, loudly enough to make any real changes as the parties are today. If democrats don’t toe the party line they are shouted down, ostracized, isolated. If a Republican doesn’t toe that party’s like they are ignored.

Of course this government would never ever consider funding agencies like the ones Scott described at the end, nor do the Republican senators and representatives care about fighting for that as a resource. My heart isn’t soft toward women who use abortion as after the fact birth control. I also think the percentage of unwanted pregnancies caused by faulty birth control is pretty low. Fault of the user perhaps, but married women who find themselves pregnant without financial resources are either careless or negligent, maybe even stupid. Regardless, if they want to keep the child rather than resort to abortion,… Read more »

Dobbs gave us a victory in the “Roe is bad law” fight. Too many believed it was a victory in the abortion issue. IT WAS NOT. Now that the bad law part of Roe has been ended, the decision is going back to the states, where it belongs. The people are speaking and that speech is “we want abortion rights.” So that now leaves the abortion issue where it belongs – a cultural issue. If you want abortion ended, figure out a way to convince the majority of voters it is wrong. I would say one of the best ways… Read more »

One of the most successful propaganda campaigns ever, probably initiated by PPH, was to convince so many women that prebirth, babies aren’t actually humans, they’re just a “clump of cells”. Then women who don’t want a baby can maintain an emotional disconnection between a child and an abortion. They’re not killing a child, they’re just ridding themselves of superfluous cells. Because that propaganda took root so hard, its difficult to convince a believer that the cells are a separate human life that deserves protecting. That’s why there is such fierce resistance to forcing women to get an ultrasound before they… Read more »

I visited the Susan B. Anthony museum in North Adams, MA, in October. She was passionately pro-life. Her colleague, a female physician, lectured to women to make them aware of fetal development. It had been thought that the fetus becomes alive a the “quickening,” when the mother feels movement. Women attending those lectures fainted when they learned that they had destroyed living human beings. Now we’ve “progressed” to the “clump of cells” argument! To support parents, I think the child tax credit is a good strategy. That way, mothers who want to stay home with their children get the benefit.… Read more »
