Last night (Sept 18, 2013) NARAL, the lobbying group for abortion rights, held a “Men for Choice and the Women Who Love Them” fundraiser.
The guest list includes Hunter Biden, son of Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr., Nathan Daschle, son of former Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle, D-S.D., Joe Lockhart, former press secretary to President Bill Clinton, Bill Burton, former campaign press secretary for President Barack Obama, Brian Wolff, former executive director of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, and former Rep. Tom Perriello, D-Va.
NARAL lists them as part of their HOST COMMITTEE:
Even Planned Parenthood joined in:
NARAL’s prez spoke of “values” and “human rights” to ThinkProgress about the Men For Choice campaign- while they promote the wholesale slaughter of unborn babies with abortion and fail to speak up when abortion docs slap or kill their patients.
“Reproductive freedom is a core value that we all share. The recent attacks on our freedoms affect women first and foremost, but are an affront to all people who hold human rights as a value. We want men on our team, not only at the elected level but at the grassroots level too. This is how we show solidarity and how we win.” ~ Ilyse Hogue, NARAL’s president.
It did not take very long for Pro-lifers to respond to this nonsense.In Fact the abortion rights blog Think Progress accused Pro-lifers of HiJacking the #MenForChoice Twitter Hashtag!
Mark Crutcher, President of Life Dynamics posted this video response:
The National Abortion Rights Action League is dragging out a campaign called Men for Choice as if this is some sort of revolutionary new concept. The reality is, and polls have consistently shown, that men have always been their strongest supporters. If fact, this is a reflection of why the early feminist leaders in this country were openly opposed to the legalization of abortion. They understood that legalized abortion has nothing to do with women’s equality. Women don’t need surgery to be equal to men. What abortion is, is a safety net for sexually predatory and sexually irresponsible males. It gives these guys a way to avoid any commitments to the women whose bodies they use or any responsibility for the children they father. Not only that, but the woman are the ones who take all the risks associated with the operation.
And not only did these early feminist leaders know this, men know it too. And men like those I just described, take advantage of it. That’s why, today, American society has devolved to the point where a male’s responsibility for an unplanned pregnancy he helped to create is often defined as a willingness to pay for half the abortion and provide transportation to the clinic.
Let’s also not forget what sometimes happens when a woman refuses to jump into this safety net. This Life Dynamics report documents about 100 cases in which women who refused their partners demands to have abortions, were then brutally murdered by those men. And our research made it crystal clear that the victims named here are just the tip of an enormous iceberg.
So if you are female, before you jump into bed with someone, it would be a good idea to find out his position on abortion. After all, you don’t want to be like the women listed here and find out the hard way that the kind of man who can be pro-choice about your baby could also be pro-choice about you.
The bottom line is, if you want to submit to an abortion, then the way the law is right now you can do so. But don’t be so blind, or so pathetically naïve, that you think abortions are done for the benefit of women. After all, if the people promoting this “Men for Choice” campaign can figure out whose bread is being buttered, so can you.
