    A different look at abortion

     

    The graphic is to illustrate the bizarre, conflicting views that must exist in a Pro-Life sympathizer's head. The obsession to outlaw abortion is the focus.

     

    This and the opposition to contraceptives that could prevent pregnancies, top their list.

     

    But the term abortion could as well be extended to birth. It is perfectly fine with the GOP and their TEA Party faction to abandon the baby after is born. That is a cruel abortion. It can lead to a deprived health, retardation, malnutrition, even death. I argue that the real abortionists are the GOP and TEA Party, who promote ABANDONMENT at birth. Then comes the other twist, where they are perfectly OK with sending young people in harm's way. (Those who survived the other dangers that lurk out there, like guns, stabbings, etc.) So now, let's say that one came back to civilian life with some injuries (physical or psychological). GOP Lawmakers have relentlessly cut veteran's benefits in the name of fiscal conservatism. That is yet another form of abandonment. Withdrawing support from a group that has fought in wars started by a GOP president.

     

    How do these conflicting concepts coexist? Beats me. Push to have as many babies born as possible, withdraw support from needy families, deny healthcare for them. So when you have a significant layer of society deprived, they will hopefully use the military to give them some security (or so they think). What then? If lucky to find a job and have a family, fine. But the unlucky ends up on the street with a handwritten sign begging for food, or job, or money. Hence a very cheap labor market???????
    I tried to put in context the abortion issue as we hear it and show that, in fact, it causes the least amount of damage to the fiber of our society. The real abortionists are the GOP and TEA Party. Their cruelty in the name of freedom, conservatism and Christianity is deplorable.
    Please vote smartly, vote out these thugs.
