“I tell you,” he replied, “if they keep quiet, the stones will cry out.”

From Planned Parenthood Hudson Peconic’s Politics Power Sex blog:

The majority of health services we provide are preventive. But it seems to me that what is truly life-changing is having an abortion, precisely because, for so many women, having an abortion means your life does not change. You do not become a mother. Or, you already are a mother but you won’t lose your job when you begin to show. Or, you can finish school – high school or college or any kind of school – without worrying that child birth and parenting will interfere with midterms, or finals, or graduation. You simply continue your life without being pregnant, and without having to face the decision to parent or place your child for adoption.

Abortion has value. It is not just the lesser of two evils, but abortion can be a good, moral decision, in and of itself. And I am not talking about cases of rape or life endangerment. I’m talking about everyday women – you, maybe, or your mom, friend, sister, wife, girlfriend, roommate – who simply know that they do not want to be pregnant, and do not want to parent this child, at this time.

From Sister Toldjah:

...Usually when abortion becomes part of our national discussion (as it often does), the focus of pro-aborts is on the emotional arguments surrounding the “health of the mother/baby” “rape/incest” rationales in attempts to imply that the vast majority of abortions are done in this country because the mother could have died if she’d attempted to give birth, that the baby had a life-threatening defect, or the woman was pregnant as a result of incest or rape. These radical pro-aborts know from one of their very own major sources of abortion information that the vast majority of abortions are performed for convenience purposes – like the ones the author mentioned above....

[....] So abortions on the basis of sex or race must continue (Margaret Sanger would be proud), and violence against pregnant women should be considered a crime against the woman only, 2nd trimester babies who are about to be aborted must continue to feel pain, the heartbeats of the soon-to-be-aborted should still be stopped, the body parts of the unborn must still be allowed to be sucked out of a woman’s body,  all primarily because her mother simply doesn’t want to deal with the hassle of having to juggle college and/or a job  and/or existing motherhood with a (another?) baby.  Life, interrupted? Not an option for pro-aborts – at least not in terms of the mother, anyway.  The life of the baby, well – that’s another story altogether.   They don’t get a say.

Which is why it’s imperative we speak for them.  Because if we don’t, who will?

I tell you, the very stones will cry out.

There's much more. For the love of God, READ THE WHOLE FRICKIN' THING.
